Along with a low-sugar diet and probiotics, antifungals are one of the three crucial elements of any successful Candida treatment plan. There are a number of natural antifungals that you can take in supplement form or even add into your diet. These work by breaking down the cell walls of the Candida yeast, and are an important part of your diet.
Popular antifungal treatments include caprylic acid, grapefruit seed extract, garlic and oil of oregano. You can add antifungals into your diet too. For example, coconut oil is a potent source of caprylic acid, and it also makes an excellent oil for cooking.
In the Ultimate Candida Diet treatment program, Dr Eric Wood and I also talk about the importance of systemic enzymes, and how they can be used to break down Candida biofilms.
