Hi, this is a long post detailing what I have tried please help
I self diagnosed myself with candida, because my doctor told me their was nothing wrong with me.
I first tried Threelac which did nothing.
Then I took Yeast Raiders from holland & barrett, they contain biotin, C, Zinc, selenium, acidophilus, barberry, caprylic acid, fibre, garlic, ginger, pau d'arco, echinecea, goldenseal. NOW i started to get rid of the brain fog, I had no die-off. I found reading on the net that the ingredients were in too small quantities, so I tried buying each seperately which I will detail later.
Because my doctor said there was nothing wrong with me for over 7 years and gave me HIGH DOSE ANTI-BIOTICS to treat my symptoms. I thought it would be wise to tell him that ive been taking Yeast Raiders and they are working and the anti-biotics just made me worse. Well lucky for him he was on holiday and I got to see a woman doctor who recognised my symptoms was candida right away and gave me Diflucan which gave me diahorrea, but didnt work.
I was recommended to read a book Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type and I read alot about diets for candida online.
So now ive avoided all Sugar foods in my diet, ive cut down on all carbohydrates. no fruit, sugar, sweets, potatoes, pasta, rice, milk, cheese, bread. I mostly just eat salads, chicken, vegtables and drink plenty of water.
The supplements ive been taking for the past 2-3 months and are now mostly ran out where:
Nettle Root 400mg 4 daily
Elecampane 300mg 4 daily
Astragalus 475mg 4 daily
Caprylic Acid 350mg 4 daily
Betaine Hydrochloride 325mg 1 daily
Oregon Grape 350mg 4 daily
Garlic Oil 5000mg 2 daily
B Complex 100mg 5 daily
Olive Leaf Extract 225mg 4 daily
Oil of Peppermint 200mg 2 daily
Pau D'arco 2500mg 8-10 daily!!!!!!!
Oil of Oregano 12 drops daily
Holy Basil 450mg 2 daily
Gentian Bitters 1 daily
Probiotic 25 Billion 10 daily!!!!!
biotin 1000mg 10 daily!!!
I still havent had any die-off and my most visual symptom is my yellow tongue which although its easier to scrape off with a tongue clear now, its still their. YES all those supplements have eased my symptoms, but considering the amount I was taking and its still not enough.
I was thinking of buying the following:
Garden of Life Fungal Defense
Garden of Life Perfect Food
Garden of Life Primal Defense HSO Probiotic
Holy Basil (lowers blood Sugar levels, good for skin)
Should I bother buying the above items, or does anyone know of anything stronger than what ive been taking.
Thanks for any help.
