    Thank you very much, Able. Do you recommend psyllium husk powder for a fibre source, or something else besides veggies?

    I have currently changed my dosage of the Candida Clear to the recommended amount. I tried to find a candida supplement without Pau d’Arco but I could not.

    I will take my probiotics further away from my antibiotics. I know antibiotics wipe out probiotics… wouldn’t taking a higher dosage be fruitless, considering they’re dying anyway? My plan was to finish the course of antibiotics and resume my normal (high) doses of probiotics.

    Staying on the diet for more than a couple of weeks after I finish the antibiotics is feasible. I will definitely do that. If it helps my mouth, then it’s worth a shot. Currently the inflammation is only on one section of my face and I hope it doesn’t worsen.

    I’ll throw my two cents in about the caprylic acid. I take two of the Now (brand) Candida Clear supplement at every meal and one before bed. They contain caprylic acid, oregano oil, pau d’arco, and black walnut. Currently my GI tract feels like a war zone, but I know everything I’m doing is for the best.

    I tried this almond coconut cookie recipe, courtesy of user Veg2, and I LOVE it! One thing, though: almost none of the liquid gets evaporated during baking, so add quite a bit more of coconut milk, just until a thinner (but not thin) dough forms, and when you form the cookies, flatten them. I omitted the butter entirely, used 3/4c-1c of coconut flour, and only added about 1/4c of oil to keep the saturated fat down. I’m already eating enough coconut oil as is! Sprinkled coconut on top before throwing them in the oven is good, too.

    almond butter cookies-
    6 oz almond butter
    1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
    1/2 cp butter
    1 cp stevia/xylitol/truvia
    1 tsp cinnamon*
    1 tsp ginger spice*
    1/2 cup coconut oil
    1 3/4 cups coconut flour
    1 egg
    form into small balls, cook 400 degrees about 10 min
    *optional

    I would suggest doing the healthy eating version of detox. The list of foods to eat available on this website is a very good resource.

    Good sources of quickly-made protein are eggs and fish. Try eating those along with lots of fresh veggies. Plan your meals. It’s very important to plan them so you don’t slip up again, thinking you’re out of food options. There are lots of candidiasis-friendly recipes on this website, along with doing an Internet search of “candida recipes.”

    Are you on any probiotics or anti-yeast supplements? Or fibre sources, like psyllium husk?

    Just KEEP GOING! Stay positive.

    I truly appreciate the reply, Able. Thank you!

    I stopped the Candex and took up Grapefruit Seed Extract. 10-15 drops in a glass of water before meals and bed. I will look for the digestive grape bitters. I will read the oral thrush post.

    Thanks again!
