I have seen my question a few times, but never found an answer. I have candida and have subsequently stopped using all forms of vinegar. Can anyone explain how/why ACV can be used as a yeast remedy?

I'm a little confused, does AVC contribute to candida or cause it? I don't seem to have any (obvious) negitive reations but after reading something on your website I started to wonder. I do deal with candida and I am doing what I know to get it under control. The last thing I want to do is make it worse. As I'm sure you know it can be a little bit of a challenge to figure out where the real reason for not feeling good is coming from. I like simple. Thats why I like AVC (and garlic) I believe AVC has kept my health. Again I understand that candida recks havoc on any ones system. Thank you for the imput. Tamra

My lady friend developed a severe case of some type of yeast or fungus overgrowth. It began as a red area under one breast, and soon spread to both breasts, upper chest, stomach and groin area. I suspect a recent injection of steroids (to relieve poison ivy) to be the cause, but that is only speculation. This rash was severe. She was Dr. prescribed a cream and then a powder-- with little effect. I recommended the Apple Cider Vinegar Cure, along with making sure the affected area stayed clean and dry. We applied (again, use only), organic, unfiltered, non-pasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar. She applied the ACV directly to the affected area. It is important to note that applying the ACV to a severe rash is Very Painful! I suggest that if you cannot tolerate the pain, you might start with a diluted (50%?) mixture until some of the "rawness" disappears. RESULTS: 100 Percent CURE! Absolutely amazing. She continued the application for about two weeks, with results beginning immediately. Her skin dried completely, the rash and finally the redness disappeared. Thank You Earthclinic, Thank You Ted!

Better But With Side Effects:
Hi. I am a new user of ACV and am very pleased and surprised at the way it is helped me to feel better. I know that I have always struggled with candidiasis, but never got the complete relief from it using other remedies. The ACV has made an incredible difference in how I feel. I have also experienced the other benefits of increased energy, decreased anxiety, better sleep. However, there is one concern I have that I hope someone can help me with. Sometimes when I take the ACV it seems to upset my stomach. Help! I really value this remedy, but I'm concerned about stomach upset. Thanks.

The Apple cider vinegar is amazing.. I was suffering from candidas overgrowth, and the GP in Sydney couldn't diagnose what's wrong with me..I am suffering with this intolerable illness for seven years. All these years I went for the frantic search for my solution on my constant migraine, constant numbness on my palm and feet, swaying backside, chronic fatigue and other negative symptom. I limit my diet, but that almost killed me, as I am losing pounds and becoming like a stick. But as soon as I apply myself with the ACV, the impact is almost instantaneous, my allergies are gone, I felt a new rush of energy, my face glow and my arthritis almost disappear miraculously. When I spit on a glass of water my saliva not longer form legs at the bottom, this happens only two days prior to the taking of ACV, and I am getting such an outstanding result. I am confident that if I apply myself daily for another month, I shall be liberate from this long torturing state. I would like to thank this site for providing me with such invaluable information, Thank you so much!!

Bill, I have a question on supplemental yeast.
There is bakers yeast, brewers yeast and nutritional yeast. How do you know which to use and can any be used if you suspect candida condition. I am most interested in taking one for the b vitamins they may have. I don't seem to tolerate supplemental b vitamins in ANY form and also know that my digestion is better if I can cut out all grain. So now I have trouble with insomnia and wondering if b's can help?
Thank you for any help.

After reading about the effectiveness of bicarbonate of soda here last Nov (2014); I decided to follow the advice to take 1/8 teaspoon in a glass of water morning and evening for candida.
Well, that worked well for me. There were 3 months of die-off but thereafter the candida load has clearly reduced. My tongue has more pink in it. Depression is gone. Insomnia is gone. Jock itch, armpit rashes, itchy eyes, brain fog, athlete's foot are all gone. Only toe-nails are still deformed but they are slowly clearing.
I will take the soda till my tongue is pink.
For the past two weeks, I have also been doing herbal enemas too - 3 cloves of crushed garlic, a leaf of aloe vera in a cup of water then adding up more water to make a 2 litre enema solution. That has helped me I realize. My colon was blocked, and it still is I think. I will carry on with the enemas till the candida has cleared.

Hello Bill /Ted
I have candida and I am on a protocol from my Chiropractor that includes a strict diet and remedies that includes Myconil for the candida and I also started with gravity fed colonic irrigation. We know I have it because of the white tongue, rash that happens under my breasts and the itching in and around my vaginal area, and mucus that comes out when I have a colonic.
I started with 10 drops 3x per day of the Myconil, and did that for 3 months I am now up to 20 drops 3x per day. I came across your site by accident and have been reading but am confused on what recipe to use for the candida, and If I can use this in conjunction with the Myconil.
If you think it is ok to use your recipe also I will show it to my Chiropractor and see what he thinks also since I respect his opinion.
Just so you know, I did read your baking soda recipes and I didn't see any heading for Candida but read comments referring to what you said you used but no specifics.
Thank you for your time in answering and trying to help, this fungus is horrible!

I've had systemic candidiasis for as long as I can remember. I've tried many things, but almost everything I try seems to have the opposite effect on me, making me worse. I recently read about using baking soda, but one of my questions is, doesnt this lower the acid in your stomach? I have low stomach acid so I don't want to make that worse either. how can I treat candida while not lowering the stomach acid? What is the best, most recent protocol for this? I read the threads and there are so many different things it's very confusing.

HI, I have been taking Baking soda for a week now and had maintained around 7.5 for most of this time but now in the last 2 days I have gone very acidic - down to 6. I am trying to treat candida. My spit tests are also showing the candida more aggresive and now I have sore nipples? Can anyone tell me what happened? Is this common for a flare-up or should I be concerned?

My 2 cents on Candida
I won't go into great detail, but I had a rash for several years and I tried everything you can imagine. Borax both internally and externally, Niacinamide in large doses, Raw garlic in high doses, urine therapy and alot of other creams and natural cures. Some helped, but you can tell when something really starts to kill the stuff. And for me that was BAKING SODA 1/4 teaspoon in lemon juice 3 times daily, and coconut oil about one to teaspoons 2 or 3 times daily.
All the itching stopped, stuff came out of my skin and the rash went away finally... I DID NOT change my diet either and since then I eat and drink whatever I want to. Even Beer!
So, I am not saying this will work for everyone, but it worked for me. I did this for about 6 to 8 weeks.

I know this is not a website for baking recipes. But I have a very aggravating problem. I am using your website to get off the sugar, to kill off the candida in my body. I have to bake sweet things for my husband all the time, every 2 days or so. He wants nothing to do with my healthy food. So I am on a search for something I can bake for myself, ingredients I CAN use. Is anything from tapioca ok to use? They sell tapioca starch. They mention rice flour, & xanthum gum, all these for gluten free recipes. I wanted to alter the recipes by putting stevia in them. I have tried buckwheat flour, to make my muffins, with cinnamon in them... Oh boy :(. I am about to try millet now. Hope it tastes better!
I know I have to get off the sugar addiction, but I am almost "freaking out" here, trying not to touch my husband's goodies I am making him. (By "freaking out", I mean I am getting mean-spirited! ) It would be easier if I did not have to bake his stuff for him, but I do.
Can you help me? Or refer me to a site that will tell me more? Thank you so very much, Bobbie ps... I tried to register on your site, it won't let me for some reason.

Hi, this question is for Bill. My husband has had systemic candida for at least 40 years (he is 61 years old). His main symptom of candida is serious depression. He refuses to take anything that kills candida because the die-off reaction is also depression. Do you know if bentonite clay can reduce the die-off since it flushes toxins out of the body? Thanks for your time!

HI. I am coming to the realization this awful itching, burning, "crawling" rash that started on my forehead and has spread to down my face even onto my neck a little bit could be a Candida yeast infection. I am overwhelmed with all the possible ways yo cure this - Threelac, Fivelac, Biotin, etc. I will try them all! I am curiuos about your Biotin. IS this over the counter? fast can I expect this to work? THANKS!!!

Hi There, Over the past few years, I've had lots of trouble with Candida. My whole body had gone fungal - skin eruptions everywhere, terrible fatigue, brain fog, illness, etc. I've tried many things, including coconut oil, antifungal medications, alkalizing diets, black walnut, etc. While all of those things seemed to help temporarily, the problem would recur after a few days.
I finally got rid of it when I discovered an article on another site about some promising research conducted using Biotin as a mitigating agent for rhizoid formation. Since I've had great success, I would like to share my findings.
I've been using about 3000 micrograms of Biotin daily for a few weeks now, with a spoonful of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, as well as a strong lactobacillus acidophilus yogurt (50 million bacteria per serving) and a diet high in vegetables and low in sugar.
Within 3 days of starting the treatment, my facial eruptions disappeared, the spots on my arms started to turn back to normal color, and my itching stopped. My dandruff is nearly gone, my eyelashes are no longer shedding little flakes, and some kind of fungal growth on my big toe rubbed right off in the shower - as if my body rejected it.
I hope it continues to work as well as it has. I'll update in a few weeks if the situation changes.
