    If you read the protocol on here, it has you start by taking molybdenum amino acid chelate for at least 3 days before you start on any sort of antifungal. That will help greatly with the die-off toxins, as will things like saunas (ideally) or hot baths (not quite as effective). You aren’t stuck here forever, you just have to break the cycle and get those toxins out!

    Thank you. I know I will have to do it.

You’ll need to get anti-fungals somehow (you can get them through food or supplements) as well as probiotics, and something to protect your liver/kidneys as you detox. You might get rid of the symptoms, but it will come right back and you will continue to have severe leaky gut issues.

    How it works is that you first detox (that’s the cleanse period), then you slowly kill the infestation through anti-fungals and a strict diet. At the same time, you gradually increase the amount of probiotics in your diet to repopulate your gut flora. This will help your gut get to an inhospitable condition for the candida so it can’t regrow and whatever the antifungals haven’t killed will get crowded out and not be able to survive as an infestation. Then, you also can concentrate on healing your gut lining so that you won’t be intolerant to everything anymore.

    Thanks again. I do have all of the supplements like chlorella,caprilic acid,oregano oil,mineral salts, Milk Thistle,2 types of probiotic as I initially received all the direction as how to deal with candida back in August 2012 from my clinic in Warsaw and I have been researching a lot.I use to take probiotics and some other supplements 2,5 years ago but now the problem is, that when I start taking something I get very sick. I would last for 2 days and then my blood pressure and pulse might go down towards rather dangerous range and my heart starts skiping beats, I get headache and I am unable to function. This is my catch 22 situation. The reason I have found myself in this situation is that I have missed my tests in 2011 and continued with the diet designed for me based on my food intolerances MRT tests at the Leap clinic in July 2010( because due to my restrictive diet from Nov 2008 till my intolerance 2010 test I have almost gotten rid of candida)as I have not shown any sensitivity to Candida Albicans in 2010. So blisfully unaware about the remification I was eating lot’s of fruit and wheat (developed terrible cravings for this particular foods) but instead of putting on weight I started losing it and developed chemical sensitivities. So this is the whole story more or less. You are really very caring person!

I just decided to go for it with the diet, eat as many veggies as possible, and work through the sensitivity reactions. As soon as I started the diet/protocol from here, my reactions went way down and I was able to tolerate veggies and eggs. Through the course of my treatment (I’ve been about 2 mos on it), they’ve gone up and down and are now pretty unpredictable, so I just keep trying foods again after a few days or a week wait. For example, some days, a soup I make makes me fatigued, others it doesn’t, so if it starts making me fatigued, I don’t make it for at least a week, then try it again, and I’m usually fine.

    raster explained to me that leaky gut can sometimes get a little worse as the candida dies off, because it leaves holes in the intestine where it was living :p There are certain supplements you can take to help the leaky gut, such as l-glutamine. It’s also important to eat anti-inflammatory. He’s a good person to ask questions about leaky gut too because he is pretty much healed from it and was in the same boat as well.

    Sorry I forgot to tell you that my body does not tolerate any medication or supplements( I don’t need any medication and have all of the required supplements/detox staff, so I am in a bit of the catch 22 situation, probably first diet then other things. God, decisions, decisions. And what do you think about combucha? My girlfriend takes it as it is nutritious and helps with constipation but my nutropath has worned me off it but my doctor from clinic in Europe told me it would be okay.

    alexalgebra;38106 wrote: Hey,

    I would really strongly recommend messaging Able for the more strict diet and protocol plan, then follow it as closely as you can, even if you have to step into it slowly. I cannot express how much this has done for me and my food intolerance problems, as well as for many others on here.

    What helped the most was staying away from basically anything but veggies and a few organic eggs for the first couple of weeks, then slowly adding in a couple of other products, such as buckwheat, coconut flour, and oat bran. Quinoa is REALLY difficult to digest, even when soaked/sprouted, so are beans, millet is not too great, and rice is high in sugar. None of those types of foods are recommended. Neither is any kind of nut product (you can start to add those back in eventually, maybe in 6-9 mos). It’s also recommended to keep servings of meat down to a couple a week. Please get the diet and protocol and read through it, I swear it will help you if you just push through the first 10-14 days of suckitude, LOL.

    Hi,
    Thank you so much for your wonderful help! Staying away from food is not a problem for me and I will do it if I have. I am only worried about my weight and my defficients but I guess I will have to become skeleton before ( I am actually one now) I can start worring about putting on weight. When I first started my diet back in Nov 2008 I have been surviving on 2 eggs and meat,poltury and fish in small amounts and cabbage and iceberg lettuce for 8 months. And it all worked like a charm as after 2 weeks I managed to get rid of candida symptoms, all of them. But now I have this problem with chemicals and any exposure makes me have candida die-off symptoms the next day, but just a few hours after the candida demands food. When I have this die-off symptoms my blood pressure drops ie.86/42 and my pulse will drop to 45 or less. So really I have to do what ever I can to get this candida under control before it eventually kills me(it has already killed 3 people in my family, 2 older and 1 younger.. Normally I eat very small portions and my body tolerates my food, my biggest problem is exposure to chemicals that’s when my body becomes overloaded. But before I will get on the top of it I will have to go down with weight that is. I am not a hermit but probably will have to plan to mainly stay home and only leave unless I have to. That will be miracle if I can do it as my sister is in hospital with cancer and it is not looking good and we have burried my nephew just last week.And I have had car accident 7 weeks ago and have to attend treatment 1-2 times a week (just excercises). Sorry about this rambling but my present circumstances are a bit difficult, however either Monday or later next week I will definately do it, but it all depends on my sister having life saving surgery in the next a few days. I do have access to protocol as Able has given me couple of links and I have book anyway. And by the way I have been tested for 140 antygens and if comes to buckwheat I don’t have any intolerance at all and very little to millet. However I know from the past that just veggies and meat and eggs did brought me back to life previously so whar you saying makes sense. I am so very grateful for you concern and tips. Stay well.

    Dear raster, I have a problem taking any supplements presently although I tried Milk Thisle drops, oregano oil,probiotic, taurine. Read my story as I replied to Able900, who responded to my “Difficult Situation” topic. I would appreciate any tips.
    Many thanks for your kind interest in my desperado story.

    Sorry. My diet consists of kale,spinach,broccoli, cucumbers, cauliflower, zuccini,cabbage,leeks, green parts of beets, celery,lettuce,asparagus,parsley(greens),french bean but could have some more like eggplant,squash,pumpkin,carrot,green pepper but I am stying away from them at present. Also I eat some lentil and pinto beans but rarely. I am not eating nuts though I could eat a few different ones. Meats & poltury:eggs,beef,duck,chicken,turkey,rabbit (problems with lamb and pork). I eat plenty of sea creatures but mainly fish, my favorite are sardines. I use olive oil,avocado,sezame,grape seed,mustard and brazil nut and duck fat for cooking. For the time being I am eating very little of the fruit, mainly avocados,apples (green)or pear(not too sweet.I don’t eat any grains however I do eat buckwheat,millet,quinoa,brown rice and millet. Whenever I can get organic I buy it or something direct from farmers. I cook my own food and follow the rotational diet where all of the food can only be eaten every fourth day however there might be an interval of 5 days sometimes. I can drink caco,dicaf coffee and tea but at the moment I drink 3 liters of water every day and that I have been doing for the past 25 years anyway.
    So, that is the story of my diet.
    Thanks again.

    My body does not tolerate any supplements or very little, or some of the foods of the candida diet at this stage. Has anyone been in similar situation and how long would it take to achieve positive results?

    All the new members with a bad leaky gut come onto the forum with the same story, so you’re not alone.

    We have a protocol and strict forum diet that’s working for a lot of people. Read the two links below and let me know if you’d like
    to have the diet plan.

    Dear Able900,
    This all is very encuraging, and I have started the diet but my body does not tolerate any supplements presently andI am underweight though not through lack of apetite or food ( I follow rotational diet prepared for me by european clinic where I have been tested for 140 antygens, this test also showed high sensitivity to candida, called MRT test). I use to be overweight and had terrible candida problems a few years ago but did not have problem with chemical sensitivities. I was diagnosed as having fibromyalgia and had to take several medications (suffered from migranes from my mid-twentieth) but in 2007 things got really bad and I have a non stop migrane for many months in the mid of 2008. All these terrible symptoms got me thinking and I have matched my symptoms to salicylate sensitivity. So I have embarked on the very restrictive salicylate free diet. In 2 weeks time I have ditched all the medication and felt like 20 years old again despite of being almost 50. I went back to work and in 2010 I went to Europe where I had this MRT test done because I knew that I could not continue on such restrictive diet (luck of nutrience etc..) When I did the test I came up with high intolerance to benzoic acid (milk), soy but my body was clear of candida. For the next 2 years I follow the diet as per my test results but that diet was rather candida friendly due to fruit, honey and wheat. Unfortunately due to work committments I could not repeat my test in 2011 and things went pear shaped for me again in November 2011 because I developed MCS. I have had another test done in July 2012 and that’s when I finally found out I had a problem with candida. And not due to over use of antibiotic as I was only treated with it a very few times in my life, the problem is genetic as I found out recently due to other family members undertaking the test and really showing the symptoms. So here I am skinny, low in vitamin D but not so bad now and low in folic acid as well as zinc. I know that I ned to follow your diet and I don’t have a problem with it, but my problem is not easy to fix because of the every day contact with chemicals which kills off the candida and I get this die-off symptoms (I can’t eat for 12-24 hours and then I crave food like mad though I fight it, however not very successfully) plus my body has then a bigger problem with food digestion or any supplement processing. This has now gotten a bit better so as long as I stay away from places where I can encounter a lot of people wearing deodorants or perfumes. For the past 6 months I have been sticking to the foods I am allowed to eat and I am avoiding the so called candida friendly foods.And I have good periods or not so good once, however I did not have had a migraine since November 2008. I have enough knowledge and with the book I should be able to concer my problems, however my body lacks nutriens so how safe would be for me to go on such a very restrictive diet. This did not worry me before because I was in top range in all the key nutriences and excess 35 kg in weight but now all is different. But on the other hand I know that this might be the only way to go forward. My liver tests aren’t perfect either. Would appreciate any advise.

    It seems to me you have lot’s of informatiation. May I ask what the kind of metallic, acidic taste in my mouth could indicate. Would it be zinc deficiency as I am very low on zinc. Many thanks.

    VERY interesting. Any clue what “GB-3” is, referenced in the article as a primary/best supplement to take?

    Thank you so much for posting the link, it makes for very interesting reading!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m not suggesting you use it…just answering the question.

    But if you where to use, what would you use it for? Does it support liver function?

    yisucks;37669 wrote: Hi all,

    I’ve been on the strict version of the Candida diet for 8 months, and have improved a great deal with the reason i went on the diet, yeast infections. I have significantly less problems than i had before, and although i do have issues sometimes down there; however, whenever i get it checked out at the gynecologist, they find no yeast under the microscope or on the culture. So, i’m moving to phase 2, slowly. I am going to start with tomatoes and use pure tomatoes to make a sauce for either eggplant or organic chicken. My question is 2 parts…1. How long should i test tomatoes before moving on to a new test (i’m thinking almonds next), and 2. How often should i try tomatoes before moving on to the next test…every day, a couple days a week etc?

    My other question is about broccoli rabe. I’m going to dinner with friends tonight and they don’t have much i can eat aside from brussel sprouts, which ill get, but they also have broccoli rabe. Is there a reason its not on the strict diet?

    Thanks!

    Well as long as you have green veg it should be allright.I am following the candida diet but I suffer from food intolerances so I can’t really follow everything as per protocol. In my opionion it should not hurt you.

    I don’t think that eating almonds is a good idea. If you do, try only every fourth day not more then 6 a day (remove skin). You must remember to eat fish,specialy oily. My favorite are fresh sardines. Taking too many supplements may overload your system. I use to have similar problems and manage to cure it completely for 2 years. Take care.
