Candida Because Of Food Intolerances?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've tried the candida diet and used natural antifungals. With each antifungal, I had die off so figured they were working. The candida always came back.

I started Nystatin and have die off symptoms so feel it is working. I tested intolerant to almost all food so can't avoid it all. Also, I can't avoid all the foods that are the normal breeding ground for candida or once again I'd not have enough to eat. I am avoiding all added sugars but still eating some fruits, starchy vegetables and brown rice.

I'm wondering because of all my food intolerances if candida is always going to cycle back. Is it going to be a vicious cycle from now to eternity.

I have been going through the same thing for years now, but have recovered a lot. what has been helping me the best is to do all the antifungals at once (if you can handle it) with massive amounts of probiotics. finding the right strains that counteract the type of candida you have can take some time. For example, the probiotics my doctors put me on, didn't do great for me, but the PB8 probiotics from the health food store, I can't live without. In addition, I recently started making my own dairy free yogurt. That is doing wonders due to the hi content of probiotics in it. Plus digestive enzymes are a must with every meal or snack. Something else I'm trying is a protein powder from Metagenics, made specifically for super allergic/ intolerant people called Sustain. It's made for people with Leaky Gut Syndrome, which is what we have that is causing our food allergies from the candida. I mix the powder, with the yogurt, some cinnamon oil for taste. Hope this helps. :) PS- when you are having major die-off reactions take activated charcoal capsules. It takes the die-off symptoms away.

What are the die-off symptoms?

My die off symptom has always been a bad headache. Today is day four of the Nystatin and it is quite a bit better. I'm hoping by tomorrow it is gone completely.

I tried changing the antifungals every couple days last fall and got really bad so found that didn't work for me.
