SUPPLEMENTS FOR ANTI-CANDIDA DIET (TAKE FOR ONE MONTH)
1000 milligrams vitamin C, three times a day (preferably timed release)
Pau D’Arco capsules 6 per day - 2 at each meal
Lactobacilus acidophilus capsules (preferably enteric coated)- to increase intestinal
bacteria, take these before retiring, and not with other supplements.
WHEN TO REINTRODUCE OTHER FOODS
As soon as you are free from symptoms, begin reintroducing a few foods slowly. The last ones to add should be sugar, yeast, vinegar, and mushrooms.
If you have experienced quite severe symptoms, it may be necessary for you to stay on the Anti-Candida Diet for a number of months. The more thoroughly you are able to stay on this diet, the faster you can eliminate excess Candida. However, it is better to be on a modified diet than on no diet at all. Some patients would rather eat sugar or have a glass of wine occasionally even though it may mean being on the diet for a longer period of time.
If after following the diet and supplement suggestions, you continue to experience Candida symptoms, we strongly recommend you consult your health care provider for further investigation.
