    How long should one be taking anti-fungals for? Until we get past stage 1 of the diet/all symptoms are gone?

    I’m currently taking one caprylic acid tablet 3 times a day after meals, a garlic tab twice a day after meals, around 6-10 drops of oregano oil, roughly two tablespoons of organic coconut oil in my cooking per day, and grapefruit seed extract which I rotate with the oregano oil every two weeks just for a change. I also take one vitamin C Vcap in the morning and try to drink lemon water once or twice a day.

    I’ve noticed that whenever I drink something I usually let off a big belch. My indigestion is much better than it was, and I have experienced some die-off, though nothing extreme or unbearable as of yet. Should I be increasing the dosage of anti-fungals, or using other anti-fungals for a change? I ordered and finally received SF722 undecenoic acid caps, which I aim to start taking next week. Should I take these alongside the other anti-fungals or should I drop one of the others in favor of this one?

    I also take a 14-strain, 80 billion count probiotic every evening just before bed, and have started making yogourmet kefir yoghurt. I’ve been on the diet for 2 months now, and have mostly stuck to it. Just the occasional oatbran, buckwheat, almond, teff, and coconut bread, and organic chicken once or twice a week.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    The time really depends on your progress. As soon as the symptoms are at a bare minimum, it’s normally safe to start lowering the dose of each, one at a time.
    What are your symptoms now compared to what they were 2 months ago?

    I’m currently taking one caprylic acid tablet 3 times a day after meals, a garlic tab twice a day after meals, around 6-10 drops of oregano oil, roughly two tablespoons of organic coconut oil in my cooking per day, and grapefruit seed extract which I rotate with the oregano oil every two weeks just for a change.

    I have my doubts that Caprylic acid capsules have much of an impact on the treatment as a whole. But coconut oil contains pure Caprylic acid so that’s another matter. It sounds like you’re not taking the coconut oil as a supplement. You might want to consider this; what I’m talking about is perhaps a teaspoon full with every meal for about three days, and then raise it to 2 teaspoons after each meal. It isn’t unusual for people to take 9 to 15 teaspoonfuls a day during the treatment. You don’t have to take a break from this and shouldn’t in fact, Candida are unable to adapt to coconut oil.

    I also take one vitamin C Vcap in the morning and try to drink lemon water once or twice a day.

    I would raise this to 1000 mg three times a day. It’ll help to keep the aldehyde toxins washed from your body.

    Should I be increasing the dosage of anti-fungals, or using other anti-fungals for a change?

    The Candida can easily adapt to grapefruit seed extract, so I would take a long break from that.

    I ordered and finally received SF722 undecenoic acid caps, which I aim to start taking next week. Should I take these alongside the other anti-fungals or should I drop one of the others in favor of this one?

    You could replace the grapefruit seed extract with the SF22. Continue the others and increase the coconut oil as I mentioned.

    I also take a 14-strain, 80 billion count probiotic every evening just before bed, and have started making yogourmet kefir yoghurt.

    What’s the brand name of the probiotic, and how long have you been taking it?

    Thanks for your response Able.

    To answer your questions:

    My symptoms now mostly consist of a slight, occasionally itchy rash around my stomach, though it’s not as bad as it was. I sometimes still get a little mild indigestion, but once again, not as extreme as before. I no longer feel nauseous, dizzy, or suffer from constipation. Occasionally get dry mouth or dry lips. Brown rice has caused me to have dry lips so I’ve dropped it from the diet. Too many carbs I presume or the candida has adapted to it.

    The probiotic I take is Renew Life’s Ultimate Flora Critical Colon BifidoMax. On the expensive side so I take one a day every evening. I’m not able to get hold of Megaflora.

    I will start the SF722 from tomorrow, and will also up my vitamin C intake. I’ll also start taking a tsp of coconut oil after meals like you said. Is it OK to take all of these anti-fungals and vitamins at the same time? Or should I take them at different intervals?

    I guess now I’m just wondering what I need to re-order as I’m about to run out of things.

    Brown rice has caused me to have dry lips so I’ve dropped it from the diet.

    A lot of people want to believe that brown rice is safe because it’s called “brown” and considered a health food, but they couldn’t be more wrong, and you’ve discovered why it isn’t on the allowed foods list, even as a phase 2 item.

    You’re right, it does contain too many carbohydrates for the diet, but worse is that even though it’s usually referred to as a health food, it’s still a starch which will feed the Candida under any circumstance. The idea of the diet is to avoid all foods that are known to do this, and not to find one that feeds the Candida but referred to as “healthy.”

    As far as whether or not a food is workable for the diet, you can usually judge that by its glycemic index. The glycemic index of brown rice is 55 which is almost equivalent to long-grain white rice. A boiled potato has a glycemic of approximately 56, so logically, if you’re going to eat brown rice on the diet, you may as well go ahead and add boiled potatoes to your diet as well.

    I will start the SF722 from tomorrow, and will also up my vitamin C intake. I’ll also start taking a tsp of coconut oil after meals like you said.

    You want to start either the SF722 or coconut oil tomorrow, and then wait at least 4 or 5 days before starting the other. However, you can increase the vitamin C right away.

    Is it OK to take all of these anti-fungals and vitamins at the same time? Or should I take them at different intervals?

    You’ll probably have to take some of the doses at the same time because of the amounts, but spread them out during the day as much as you can, especially the antifungals.

    I guess now I’m just wondering what I need to re-order as I’m about to run out of things.

    Are you taking Molybdenum? You’ll need it when you increase some of the antifungals and add the SF722. Also, remember that you’ll need to try and find a probiotic containing the DDS-1 strain.

    Yes, I take one Molybdenum tab every morning with breakfast.

    This is the only Acidophilus DDS-1 probiotic that I’ve come across: http://www.iherb.com/Dr-Mercola-Complete-Probiotics-10-Strains-60-Capsules/40386?at=0

    What do you think? Only 35billion CFU’s per cap and 10 strains.

    This brand is much better than some I’ve seen, at least it contains DDS-1 and 10 strains of bacteria, plus FOS is added which is beneficial to the bacteria.

    Start with one capsule on an empty stomach; after two weeks move up to two a day.

    Good find.

    OK, will do. Thanks.

    Any chance you could comment on my “Vegetarian Energy Protein” thread? Would appreciate it.
