[YEA] Turmeric Stopped My Candida
Since taking an antibiotic a few months ago, I have been plagued with a Candida overgrowth in my bladder. So painful, and I couldn't leave home. I was taking natural anti-fungals, expensive probiotics, and following the pesky (but helpful) Candida diet.
Then I had a bad flare-up of arthritis, and remembering that turmeric worked wonders with that before, I ate curries for two weeks straight. (Fortunately I love curries!)
Anyway, not only did my arthritis symptoms abate significantly, but my Candida symptoms disappeared!
I can discontinue the expensive probiotics, or at least take less of them, and I don't have to stay strictly on the Candida diet, so long as I have turmeric in some form at least five days a week. I have just learned about turmeric tea, which means I can eat other types of meals besides curry all the time! And, it's great to be able to go out and about again without diving for bathrooms all the time.

[YEA] Turmeric together with eliminating sugar & gluten cured my Candida.
I had a candida infection for 15 years and had tried many treatments including over-the-counter creams, acupuncture, naturopathy, hydrogen peroxide, raw garlic, and various dietary regimen. Last year I took the plunge and eliminated all sugar, including fruit and all starches, from my diet and experienced some relief of my symptoms, but the yeast was still present and would flare up now and then.
What finally worked for me was taking turmeric 3x a day along with cutting way down on sugar and totally eliminating gluten (I ate rice and corn but no fruit, refined sugar, honey, etc). I experienced yeast die-off symptoms (all my symptoms seemed to get much worse for several days) but then the symptoms lessened and finally abated!
Here's what I did with the turmeric (credit goes to the Kundalini Yoga Tradition for this info):
Make turmeric paste by mixing 1/4 cup of turmeric with enough water to form a thin paste and boiling it on the stove for 5 minutes. Stir continuously and add water as needed. Store the paste in glass jar with a tight-fitting lid in the fridge for up to 30 days.
Heat 1.5 cups of milk, almond milk, soy milk, or rice milk to almost boiling.
Pour milk in a mug.
Dissolve 1 heaping teaspoon of turmeric paste in the milk.
Add sweetener to taste (use stevia powder if you are avoiding sugar).
Add 1 tsp. of almond oil.
It's sweet, warm, and delicious! Even my husband, who is not adventurous with food, loves Golden Milk.
I drank three cups of this a day for six weeks in conjunction with eliminating refined sugar, fruit, and gluten from my diet. Once my symptoms were gone, I introduced refined sugar and fruit back into my diet but when I tried to re-introduce gluten, I had bad results so I no longer eat gluten.

Hi, recently, well today, I've came across Turpentine for Candida. Would this be safe for an 18 year old to consume and if so how much should I take? Here is what I have, which may or may not help:
- white tongue
- psoriasis on scalp/forehead
- brain fog
- strained eyes / losing vision!
- on my left leg, by the shin, I get muscle spasms
- irregular BM
- very tired
Thank you so much.

Hello Mr. Bill Thompson: My question is the following on the frequency and turpentine protocol: what is the proper protocol for taking the turpentine cleanse for a chronic candida overgrowth?, I have searched the internet very extensively, and have spoken to Dr. Jennifer Daniels on various occasions, here in Panama where she is at the present moment. She is an advocate of vitality capsule to clean and have 2-3 bowls movements a day, and the Sugar/ turpentine protocol 1:1,2 times a week, and then a maintenance does every 3 months.
Now if you go the oil protocol she recommends - castor oil over olive oil at a 4:1 oil to turpentine. I have just recently started the turpentine / olive protocol on a 1:1 2 times week going on my 4th dose in 2 weeks. I still do not know what to expect, other than a little dizzy and hyper for a bout 4 hours or so, but I drink about 4 glasses of water and it calms me down.
I have been on a pretty strict diet for 1 year, low low processed sugar, lots of good drinking water - maybe 3 quarts of water daily, fresh broccoli, fresh fruit, ( bananas, papaya, kiwi ), oil pulling 2 times a day with EVCO, supplement with a good multivitamin men's one, 150 mcg kelp, Molybdenum chelated, organic raw apple cider 1 teaspoon 2 times and 1 whole fresh lemon 1 a day, 2 probiotics daily 15million CFU, milk thistle, MSM, raw plain yogurt, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, gluten free brown rice, skinless chicken, fresh fish, home made tortillas, 1 hard boiled egg every other day. Which oil protocol do you feel is more effective, the castor or olive and protocol, since do I do not want to go the sugar route at all.
Thank you, Cheers, NicholasReplied by Bill
