Question: I have had CFS for more than 30 years and have just found out through an OAT test that a fungal infection (along with toxins) is behind my poor mitochondrial function. I’m already taking lots of supplements for Mito dysfunction as well as liver and immune support, vitamin and mineral deficiency and large doses of Vitamin C and I haven’t even started on my adrenals which I know aren’t functioning properly. My poor liver is struggling to cope and the battle is raging on so many fronts I don’t know which to prioritise – and judging by how I’m feeling I’m not winning. I haven’t previously taken anything specifically for yeast apart from a product called Intesta Cleanse that contains black walnut, Pau d’Arco, berberine and ginger. Should I add Canxida to the mix, or stop some of my present supplements until I get the yeast sorted out, and if so, which? I’m on a keto paleo diet with no dairy. My mood is much more stable since I established that but brain fog and fatigue are worse in the three months I have been taking the supplements – which I guess could be die-off. I hope you can help – it’s very confusing!
Following a comprehensive gut protocol will give you some relief from symptoms experienced by CFS. Candida overgrowth is more likely to happen in individuals with already poor gut health. Make sure to focus on the basics first like reducing your stress levels, improving your diet (which you already have) and exercise. There could also be hidden intolerances/food sensitivities that are hindering your gut health. Taking an IgG food sensitivty test can be useful to have a better chance at fighting Candida. The second step is switching to a low sugar anti-Candida diet. Candida albicans thrives on a diet full of sugars. You also need to focus on foods that are good for gut health and will help to reduce gut inflammation caused by Candida. Add more anti-inflammatory foods including vegetables, wild fish, berries and seeds like flax, chia.
Taking a high quality probiotic like CanXida Remove is KEY. Recolonising your gut with probiotic bacteria is a crucial part of fighting Candida, and restoring your gut flora to a healthy balance. Use natural antifungals which work by breaking down and destroying the cell walls of Candida albicans. Natural antifungals include caprylic acid, oregano oil and garlic extract. Candida can become resistant so using a combination that contains several antifungals is more effective like CanXida Remove with 12 combined proven antifungals. Ideally you want to start with small doses to prevent intene symptoms of yeast die-off if you are already taking another supplement with antimicrobial botanicals, stop taking them before introducing Remove and you can later alternate between them after taking a full course of Remove. Additionally you can support your immune system and gut barrier by taking a multivitamin like CanXida Rebuild with added herbal medicines for intestinal barrier repair which will help heal leaky gut.

Persistent vaginal infections are sometimes very challenging to treat. This could be due to antibiotic/antifungal resistance of the bacteria/yeast or simply physiology, being a women and being on menopause are two risk factors for vaginosis. Some important considerations beside antibiotic use include: Topical estrogen has proven effective to restore vaginal pH and prevent infection. Estrogen stimulates the proliferation of lactobacillus, reduces vaginal pH, and avoids vaginal colonization of yeast. Probiotics can help crowd out the bad bacteria and yeast and restore balance. You can take an oral probiotic for prevention like CanXida Restore, and it might beneficial to take a probiotic suppository for an active infection. D-mannose can be rapidly excreted to prevent the adhesion of bacteria to the urinary walls.
Other recommendations include keeping the area very dry, practicing good hygiene, and not wearing harsh clothing materials in the genital area. CanXida Remove which contains herbs like oregano, grapefruit seed, berberine and caprylic acid (biofilm disruptor) can inhibit bacterial and fungal growth and disrupt biofilms . CanXida Remove is formulated with 12 natural antifungals in standard doses that are effective against bacterial overgrowth. Probiotics like CanXida Restore can help improve gut immunity and restore benficial flora. Boric acid suppositories are commonly prescribed to help treat persistent or recurring vaginal issues like yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis (BV). Boric acid has antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Boric acid is a solid therapy for recurring vaginal yeast infections or infections with atypical yeast species.
Question: I am suffering severely with anxiety and am in my die off stage. I was diagnosed with candida and leaky gut over 20 years ago, but never fully cured. I have ordered your Canxida. My primary doctor ordered me Xanax for the anxiety but don’t like the way it makes me feel. I have also been using an herbal supplement from our health store, but that’s not much help. Any suggestions I could try, I am Desperate! Thank you,
A die-off occurs when introducing antifungal or probiotic supplements into your regimen. When these cells die, they release many toxic compounds like ethanol, uric acid and acetaldehyde. You can help by adding a liver-supportive supplement like milk thistle, turmeric or dandelion. I recommend taking breaks between introducing any new dietary changes, probiotics, or antifungals. This is the safest, easiest method to beat your Candida. Allowing enough time between each phase of the plan allows your liver to adjust and prevents too many Candida toxins from being released at the same time. When following a Candida protocol is also essential to keep hydrated to help kidneys clear out toxins. Try including mre fiber in your diet or a fiber supplement like psyllium 10g/d for 4 weeks. Make sure to get adequate rest and sleep since this can impact your immune system.
Many people with anxiety find relief with treatment. While some people benefit from taking medication, others find success with natural remedies. Studies have shown that CBD can help woth anxiety. You can find CBD products in many products, like CBD oil tinctures (liquid drops), gummies, chocolate and candies. Different herbal supplements may help alleviate anxiety symptoms, helping you to relax and feel calmer such as lavender, lemon balm, chamomile, and passionflower. Rapid, shallow breathing is a common symptom of anxiety. Deep breathing involves taking deliberately deep and measured breaths to restore normal breathing patterns, which can help to reduce anxiety. Weighted blankets can be beneficial for alleviating symptoms of anxiety. The pressure helps to put your body into rest mode reducing anxiety.
