I Have Finally Decided To Supplement

Recommended Posts

But I am unsure on what is the most important things to supplemet for celiac and candida.

So far on my list i have l-gluatamine, peppermint oil for the mouth ulcers i get, sublingual b-12, braggs apple cider vinegar and buffered vitamin c..

I also already have pau d-arco herb and activated charcoal, just havent tried either of them yet lol.

What other things should i look in to and is there an website that will tell me if any of the stuff interacts with each other.

hi paula, sistergoldenhair here. Who told you to take all those supplements? No offense it just seems to be a strange combination of things. Be careful of acidic things. If you are taking the apple cider vinegar for your stomach and it doesn't seem to be working, maybe try a good enzyme supplement to break down the foods that you eat. Also are you on a gluten free diet now? Are you taking the pau d-arco for candida? And as for mouth sores , try a nice mouthwash made with warm water, salt , clove oil, tea tree oil and if you can find a liquid co-q10. They will help heal the sores and stop some of the pain you may have. I am not a doctor but have been through the mill with this disease. Let me know if you have any questions? My e-mail is dipete2@gmail.com How old are you?

The vinegar is for my skin, i guess i should of said i was not going to be drinking it lol. I have heard about the tea tree oil, but i was also going to have my stepson use it cause of the mouth ulcers and i read that tea tree oil can give boys boobs and i didnt want that to happen so decided on the peppermint oil..

Yes i have been gluten free since last february and on the candida diet since jan 5th, and heard great things about pau d'arco but havent tried it yet.

I am 35. ughhh i wish i was 25 lol

Besides the sublingual methylcobalamin (B12), I'd suggest magnesium, and maybe vitamin D. Some others to consider might be calcium and zinc. If you google zinc deficiencies, you'll get the common symptoms, so you can see if they fit you.

For the candida, I'd suggest caprylic acid.

Curious, I have only heard of using apple cider vinegar for heartburn. If you need something to help your skin, try coconut oil. But what sort of skin problem are you trying to resolve?

On the mouth sores, that does sound candida related. So I'd expect that to go away when the candida is taken care of.

What's the L-Glutamine for?

L-glutamine is to heal leaky gut.I read in a magazine (of course) i cant think of which one right now on how it is good for people with leaky gut, and i know a few people on here have talked about it.

Would it be best to do caprylic in pure form or cook some with coconut oil?

I have only had one mouth sore since doing the candida diet, i use to think the mouth sores were celiac related, but that would make sense it is from the candida.

I didnt even think obout vit d, magnesium and zinc, i will go look into that now, would it be better just to do a multi vitamin or ones all by themselves.

OK, I've read that too, and I did buy some. Seems to help to some degree.

Not sure why you'd want to cook it, but when I had the yeasty beasties, I took caprylic acid capsules. Worked miracles. However, I also avoided all sugars, yeasts, vinegars, and fruit.

Coconut oil is marvelous for skin, hair and nails, though I found only the really expensive centrifuged kind worked for me. I tried many cheaper ones, non tasted good, but more importantly they didn't work.

I recently ran into this product:

That can help give you an idea of the things which help to kill candida.

I agree.

I take them separately, only because multi vitamin supplements are not in powdered form, which I need for maximum absorption. Also I think I looked for a capsule form, and didn't find one that was safe. One thing to consider too is that a multi may lead to overdosing on certain things depending on what you are already absorbing. Many on this board do take multi-vitamins, but maybe even more take a B-complex.

Even if I took a multi, I'd still need extra of certain things anyway. I guess you should look up some of the more commonly suggested nutrients, and see how you relate to the known deficiencies.

The B12 can be in pill form, as long as it's sublingual. The one I take isn't a liquid either. The important thing is that it must be methylcobalamin. I haven't tried any liquid ones, because it seems to me that ten seconds just isn't enough time for it to get absorbed. Also the liquid needs to be refrigerated, making it less convenient for me.

The B12 I take is from Source Naturals. I buy it online though, since I cannot find it locally.

This one is from NOw and is chewable with 1000 mcg and 100 folic acid and there is fructose in it, so wouldnt that be a no-no cause im on the candida diet.

Sorry for the late response. Though fructose is a sugar, it is not quite as simple a sugar as sucrose (table sugar). It will feed yeast, just as fruit would I suppose. Also, since it is chewable, you may not get the same benefit from it as with a sublingual. Depending on the candida trouble you have, the fructose might interfere a little, though I don't imagine one tablet contains very much fructose.

Hi. Riceguy mentioned about not taking sugar amongst other things.

Whilst remedies like Caprylic Acid, Pau d'arco, garlic, probiotics, et al, are useful, by far the best thing to do is to avoid sugar and anything that converts to glucose in the body like carbs. It is the only sure-fire way to keep the little beggars under control!

We can take different remedies and they may work for a while but if we do not control our carb and sugar intake, it will come back. The Candida grows in relation to the amount of sugar and sugar-producing foods we eat. What we enjoy, it enjoys!!!!

It is hard, I know, but we just have to remember that if we lived say, on a tropical island where there was no sugar products or much carb and everything we ate was fresh and natural, we would not be suffering with it! (We probably would not be suffering with Celiac/GI either!!!)


Ali - 50 - struggled with what I now know to be GI symptoms and poor carb digestion for at least 35 years! Diabetic type II (1997). Mother undx Celiac - lifelong diabetic Type 1 & anemic (plus 1 stillborn and 10 miscarriages after me). Father definitely very GI.

Stopped gluten & dairy, Jan 08, but still other issues so dropped most carbs and sugar and have been following the Specific Carb Diet (SCD) since March 08. Recovery slow but steady and I can now eat a much broader range of foods especially raw which are good for my digestion and boost my energy level.

Not getting better? Try the SCD - it might just change your life.........

Ok a few more guestions

I finally got my sublingual b 12, when is the best time to take it and what should i eat when i take it, i dont do breakfast besides green jucing on occassion, so need to know if i shoudl eat iwth it lol

I also got some cal-mag citrate with vitamin d, is this something that is good to take. I had orgionally got it cause i heard it helps make u regular or some take it to sleep better. But havent seen much about this combo but it was the stuff the health food store thought would be good for me. It says to take 3-6 tablets a day. Im kinda afraid to take that many a day.
