Candida Releated Complex

Olive Leaf is great, it helps with many viral infections, I used to take it and forgot about it, thank you for the reminder. Lomatium is also good, especially for Epstein Barr Virus and others. I know that Poe D’Arco is also a good treatment for cancer, so are enzymes, infact some research has been done with injections of enzymes directly into tumors to destroy them and it has worked. I haven't done much research into anti-cancer herbs or supplements.
That is a very good list of things to remember, really good.

Well first off, I will say that I would not be going the surgery route unless it were unavoidable and by that I mean life threatening and time was running out. Doctors do not have enough respect for the human body and think going around tinkering with it is, cutting into it, pumping you full of whatever chemical is in vogue is fine and dandy.
I respect what surgeons are able to do, it is amazing, but cutting the body effects it more than they have an understanding of and in my opinion, usually isn't even close to necessary. They aren't evil, but you have to remember that they are out to make a buck.
Sinus problems can be a symptom of Candida and there are so many natural alternatives to antibotics (which are only going to worsen your Candida and are bad for the immune system period) that it is a shame. I have heard wonderful things about probiotics, if you do a search on these boards under the word you will see what is said about using them after your treatment (and all the time) and how that may help you recover. Usnea, Elecampagne, Echincea and many other herbs (Kyolic Garlic has no smell and would really help the infection, Olive Leaf is really wonderful as was said) help with both intestinal and sinus infections. Simply rinsing(snorting it up) your nose with salt (sea salt) water helps a lot too.
As far as whether to have fruit in your diet, I have tried the Candida diet and it didn't do a gosh darn thing for me. My original point stands, as I found out, you cannot starve the Candida....if you are actively treating it, you may not want to give it too much fuel (it does grow faster in a sugar rich enviroment) but I don't feel fruit is an issue, it has too many benefits to the immune system and Candida feeds on all carbohydrates, so it is unreasonable to believe you can cut out everything that it could eat.

I don't know that there is a specific area of the intestines that Candida gets a foothold, I'm sure it infects different people in different areas to start and then can eventually become a body wide infection (Systematic Candidiasis).
I was trying to remember the probiotic that someone said was gluten-free and worked well for them and I just got it, Primal Defense click here for info: http://www.primaldef...rimaldefcap.htm
I haven't tried it yet, but it sure looks good. Like I said, enzymes and the coconut oil (virgin, preferrable organic) has done good things for me but I know I have a ways to go. And the list that Paul posted is a great source of info.

THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD QUESTION ABOUT WETHER EAT FRUIT OR NOT BECAUSE THEY A FULL OF MOLDS. BUT I THINK THE ANSWER COME WITH THE FACT THAT THEY ARE FULL OF ANTI OXYDANT TO, WICH IS GREAT AGAINST CANCER. (BAD FOR MOLDS BUT GOOD AGAINST CANCER.
HERE IS A HYPERLINK OF THE LEVEL OF TOXICITY IN GRAIN. SORRY IF IT'S IN FRENCH.
THE GRID SHOWS THAT THE LESS TOXIC GRAIN IS RICE WITH 5 POINT. SO IT'S THE ONLY GRAIN I EAT.
I HAVE FORGOT IN THE LIST:
- GREEN PAPAYA
FOOD THAT DESTROYS MOLDS
- GRAPEFRUIT SEEDS
I AM ALSO GONNA GIVE IT A TRY TO MATÉ, SOMETHING SOUTH AMERICAN (ARGENTINA, BOLIVIA...) ARE DRINKING EVERYDAY AND THAT STIMULATE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Where the health cares are free, but where the doctors worry more about their bank account than the health of their patients.
gluten-free since april 2003
On the no grain diet (Mercola) and initial phase diet (kaufmann) since january 2005. healthy since january 2005

In one of my previous posts I said that Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (NOW brand is what I use) does seem to help. There is a lot of info on these boards about it, do a search under virgin coconut and you will see the discussions and links to more info.
can not get into the intestinal track
Did he say in or out of the intestines?

Hey went to gastro today, i told him that i seemed to have yeast in my mouth and he told me that i could not have yeast in my mouth cause im on diflucan which the ent prescribed me, he told me last time that it is not possible to have yeast in your intestines inside, heck he dont even believe its possible to have yeast period! Im not gonna go back to him cause i know i have yeast, had a postive culture of yeast in my mouth last month at the ent office. Im gonna go to a homeopath doc at the end of June i just cant stand this circle of docs anymore!![FONT=Times][FONT=Arial]

Sorry I'm coming late to this topic. Is anybody still interested?
My modest contribution is simply to suggest using Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) to control candidiasis. It's fairly cheap (I'm using the Proseed brand) and seems to be very effective, maybe even moreso when used with Coconut Oil.
I've been on it for about a week and am now feeling the effects, exactly as predicted, of dying candida. The course of treatment is roughly one month.
As I understand it the candida infestation is a consequence of the Gluten Intolerance and the gluten-free diet will probably keep any leftover candida under control once the GSE has done its work.
Please let me know if I'm wrong about any of this.
