Question: How can I manage recurrent candida symptoms after dietary lapses, given my limited budget and previous treatments like Canxida, probiotics, and fluconazole? I need to control this before attempting conception in February.
If you had taken antifungals while you were in the initial phase of the diet, chances are they were quickly expelled from your system with all the pathogens, bacteria, and other matter that is being washed through your digestive system. This is sometimes referred as Candida die-off and it creates very unpleasant symptoms including flare-ups. Ideally you don’t want to put too much stress on your body by creating a quick Candida die-off when you have just begun the diet. My recommendation is to focus on the diet first, and be more mindful about any symptom when introducing different foods. If you had a severe reaction to the probiotic I suggest first to begin taking the antifungals supplements and foods.
Probiotics and antifungals are both powerful elements of the Candida treatment plan, so it’s really important to leave enough time between starting each of these phases. The reason is that both probiotics and antifungals will cause a Candida die-off, so to start courses of both at the same time for some people can be very challenging. My suggestion would be to start introducing natural antifungal foods and notice any changes in symptoms and overall health. Natural antifungals that you can start slowly introducing in your diet include garlic, coconut oil, onions, ginger, seaweed, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, turmeric, bone broth and Pau d’Arco tea. Be careful with fermented foods since some can have large doses of probiotic and wild yeast that can create die-off symptoms as well. If you are more sensitive to antifungals you should be able to tell when introducing some of these foods and be sure to do it gradually.
Additionally you can begin introducing half a tablet of CanXida Remove as a lower dose. You can use vaginal probiotic suppositories if you are having an active infection and use a high quality oral probiotic to prevent further infections. You might be getting flare-ups symptoms as part of the Candida die-off. If this happens it is important to support detox pathways and add in digestive enzymes and systemic enzymes to help break down and eliminate toxic byproducts of dead yeast cells. When following a Candida protocol is also essential to keep hydrated to help kidneys clear out toxins. Because your bowels will have a hard time getting rid of excess Candida toxins I recommend including a fiber supplement like psyllium/flax or making sure to get 30 grams of fiber daily from foods. You can also add gut supporting foods like bone broth, aloe vera and cabbage juice to help heal leaky gut and fiber will help bind to toxins in the intestines to clear them out. You can take CanXida Rebuild which contains important vitamins to support the immune system like B vitamins and magnesium and gut barrier nutrients like zinc, glutamine acid and slippery elm. Finally make sure to get adequate rest and sleep since this can impact your immune system.
Question: My questions is two parts. Can I introduce some brown rice to the diet as I haven’t had any crabs other than veggies for nearly 3 weeks? The second part of the question, what’s the best way to balanced Candida and heal thyroid issues related to gut imbalance? I never had thyroid issues until I devolved Candida so I know it’s reversible. Thanks for your tremendous support and looking forward to hear from you
Non-glutinous grains like brown rice, oats, quinoa or buckwheat can be consumed in small amounts as part of a healthy Candida diet. The key is not over consuming it since they do have a fairly large amount of net carbs. I would suggest starting with 1/2 cup cooked per day and work to 1 cup if you have no issues. Other good carb options besides veggies include lentils and split peas which have less net carbs. An underactive thyroid gland also known as hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s happens when the immune system continuously attacks the thyroid gland. With time, chronic inflammation can make thyroid cells unable to produce its hormones, leading to hypothyroidism. Candida overgrowth may release toxins through the gut, causing inflammation in targeted organs like the thyroid. There are many reports of patients who suffer from Hashimoto’s who also have an underlying candida overgrowth. It’s important to address the underlying candida overgrowth to support thyroid health. Yeast overgrowth can lead to leaky gut by breaking down the walls of the intestines and then getting into the bloodstream. When not addressed, leaky gut can lead to autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s.
Candida can also cause your immune system to trigger inflammation which can lead to thyroid issues. Unhealthy gut bacteria also affect the thyroid gland. When there is an imbalance in the bacteria in the gut, T4 to T3 conversion can be disrupted. Roughly 20 percent of T4 to active T3 conversion takes place in the gut. When the bacteria in your gut are imbalanced or there is an overgrowth of yeast this process can become disrupted. Candida overgrowth in the gut can also affect adrenal health and cause imbalances in stress hormones. Any type of hormone imbalance can ultimately lead to thyroid health problems. There is also research of protein similarities between Candida and the thyroid gland leading your immune system to mistake your thyroid for candida yeast. To help repair your intestinal wall you will need to focus on foods that are good for gut health and will help to reduce gut inflammation caused by Candida.
These low sugar anti-inflammatory foods include vegetables, wild fish, berries, flax seeds, healthy fats like avocado and olive oil and spices like turmeric. 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 like CanXida Remove or add antifungal foods like coconut oil ,garlic, oregano, ginger and apple cider vinegar. 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 or add gut supporting foods like sauerkraut, bone broth and aloe vera.
Question: My situation is I have bad toenail fungus had this for years I have psoriasis on knees elbows I’ve also like rosacea redness on face also surfer’s eye which recently started a few months ago.

Much gratitude and thank you
Based from your symptoms, it seems you might have a chronic yeast infection most likely caused by Candida which is manifesting both internally and externally. It is crucial to remove harmful toxins that are caused by Candida from the body. Ensuring proper elimination and bowel regularity, requires fiber, water intake and probiotics. Each day the body goes without having a bowel movement is allowing toxins from the bowel to be reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Slow transit time can ultimately lead to inflammation, leaky gut, and food intolerances. Laxatives are fine for occasional constipation, however, for chronic conditions, it’s best to address the root causes. High fiber foods such as leafy greens, beans and seeds can promote healthy motility and elimination. If constipation is still a problem, then taking a natural fiber supplement is a safer way to reduce transit time through your gut. Look for whole foods source of fiber like psyllium husk (10 grams/d) and ground flax seeds (1 tbsp/d) to promote healthy detox. Fiber may make symptoms worse if your constipation is caused by an overgrowth of harmful bacteria. Probiotics help to correct the bacterial imbalances that underlie many cases of constipation.
Several studies have shown that probiotics: Significantly improve stool frequency, and improve intestinal transit time and stool consistency. Look for a blend of Lactobacillus & bifidobacterium species like CanXida Restore with multiple highly researched strains. For some patients, probiotics offer a partial solution, and adding an antifungal formula can make treatment more effective. Herbal antimicrobials like in CanXida Remove can also help eliminate yeast like Candida and improve digestive function. Finally ensure half your body weight in ounces of water daily during your cleanse, more if you are constipated. You can also try some natural topical antifungals for treating the localized infections in your skin and nails which are usually caused by a type of yeast called Malassezia and/or dermatophytes. I recommend mixing a few drops of tea tree oil in some coconut oil and applying directly to the affected areas. Both coconut oil and tea tree oil have powerful antifungals properties.
