Blackstrap Molasses

Black strap molasses ( for candida)

**Background **

Mom (f 64) and I (f 28) had been struggling with candida for several years (mom 6 years, me 2 years) she would be so itchy and red that she could no longer sleep plus would have an oozing discharge from under her breast and her skin would flake off ( Dr gave her a pill in the beginning ( lamosil I believe but I could be wrong )but she ended up with a fever 102, hives, chills and body aches so bad she couldn't get out of bed plus the candida became even worse) so we started trying every home remedy we could find. Instead of having the rash all day everyday it became a nightly problem only but did not disappear. Cue 4 years later I started having a rash on my cheeks, thrush, and itching under my chest plus a oozy discharge from my navel I managed to get rid of it for a few weeks but it kept coming back. We also had insomnia sometimes only sleeping 1 to 2hrs a night.

Both of us had darker skin along candida hotspots and our arms( mom used to call me her chocolate chip as I was so dark when I should be golden brown)

Mom was diagnosed with fatty liver so she had quite a bit of swelling in her abdomen plus many liver spots.

***trying Black Strap molasses***

Fast-forward 2 years and through pure chance I found out about Blackstrap molasses for painful menstrual cramps and upon further research I found out it had ⅕ of your daily iron in it plus it is 50-97% absorbable as I was also struggling with pms and anemia I decided to try it despite it possibly triggering the candida.( so did my mom )


It did trigger a rash on the 1st day but we persisted as we both finally got a full night's sleep!!!! We felt so well rested finally!!! It was worth the rash!!!!

We decided to take wormwood to control the candida somewhat...But

***Within 3 days we noticed no more itching!!!!! No more rash!!!!! We both are feeling better then we have in a long time!!!!

*** Dosage***

started with 1 tbsp once daily went to 3 tbsp throughout day***

My research showed you can take 6 tbsp but please do you own research

As this has a lot of potassium about 700 mgs per tbsp ( drs say 99mgs per day but apparently we can take more do your own research please)

**** side effects****

Die off is not fun those 3 days were terrible but as we hadn't slept for so long it was worth it

People warn about sugar spikes but I have noticed it Dropping my sugar instead mom did as well(she's had hypoglycemia since childhood she knows the signs)

Made me super sleepy to the point of dizziness for the 1st week after that it balanced out and I can take it anytime of day now

I started loosing weight and needing to eat more as my metabolism has kicked into gear ( plus sugar levels dropping)

In the first few days my urine smelled really strong and was very dark plus I needed to pee more often this slowed down after about a week or two

Week 2

I started having mood swings

( but still the sleep was worth it)

Week 3

I started noticing pains in my bones and body to (but I could still tell this is helping me I'm getting better so I continued) taking niacin helped with the aches

Week 4

I started losing my appetite but was still getting hungry faster so I made myself eat( it was hard) but still feeling better as my body felt stronger

Week 5

My fingers started swelling up and hurting (but again I still know this is helping) niacin helped and this only happened on and off through 2 days never happened again for me

Week 6

I feel awesome no side effects or die off symptoms I feel great!!!!

Though mom just started having mood swings lack of appetite and the swelling fingers all at once(probably cause she had those problems so much longer???)

But still no rash!!!! We're sleeping every night full 8hrs!!!! Body feels stronger and swelling of mom's liver is going down!!!! Skin color is clearing up!!!! More energy!!!! Age spots on mom are going away!!!! Her hair is turning back to brown most of the top of her head was silver!!!! My hair is fuller and has more volume!!!! We feel awesome we keep getting stronger!!!!

Ps uncle tried this too

His many liver spots are going away!!! And his skin is clearing up

Alpha Lipoic Acid

ALA works against Candida

I purchased Nature's Pure Alpha Lipoic Acid, a combination of R-ALA and S-ALA. I learned too late that S-ALA is synthetic and can diminish the benefits of R-ALA. I decided to take it anyway to see what would happen. I began a few days ago (October 4 2023). It is three days later and I am astonished that from day one my Candida rash began to disappear. It is now completely gone. I take one 300mg capsule in the morning 30 minutes before eating or drinking. Needless to say, I will continue this supplement.

I should say that I don't eat sugar or any sweeteners of any kind, artificial or natural. I also don't eat fruit or any grains except a bowl of Grape Nuts at night. My diet is bean-based: canned beans, a little animal protein, vegetables, and some oil. Maybe with this supplement I can expand into other food categories that previously exacerbated my Candida symptoms.

Hi Bill - I'm not new to Earth Clinic but this is my first post. How often should the alkalizing remedies be done? Daily? Weekly? I ask because I tend to become quite acidic if I don't use at least the baking soda/water at least every other day. This morning I'm trying the lemon/baking soda remedy to see if perhaps that will keep me in the balanced range longer. Has that been your experience? Thanks!

Antifungal Foods for Candida
Posted by Dee (Melbourne, FL) on 03/07/2023

You seem to contradict yourself. You say to make stews or soups for ideal consumption of diet yet you say not to boil veggies and should eat them raw? HUUHHHHHH???? Stews and soups is not raw. Plus I've NEVER witnessed or heard of eating Asparagus raw. Cooking veggies actually activates nutrients as well. Plus how will your digestive system break down all of that fiber? Too much. Maybe suggest juicing the raw veggies. Maybe?

Dietary Changes
Posted by Richard (Georgia) on 12/25/2022

The best way to defeat candidiasis is an 80/10/10 diet, many people think sugar is culprit, we just realized that fat is the culprit because fat makes sugar stay in the body much longer and has a better chance for feeding candida. People got on anti-candida diet and still struggle with it. Ok check out this video and hope you get it,

Brewer's Yeast
Posted by Candy (Stuart, FL) on 06/15/2022

I started using Brewer's Yeast (Nutritional Yeast) about 30+ years ago. I have discovered over the years how it has cured the worst diarrhea and vaginal candida. Since 2016 I started taking it not as a solution to a problem but an almost daily supplement and have amazing results. I sleep so well when I take it regularly. Cures all types of insomnia. I also have been taking it to keep me healthy. I have not had a cold for years and I was using it while working in the classroom. If I forget to take it I have gotten sick over the years but I have learned to take it right away when I am coming down with something and it helps amazingly.

I use 2 heaping tablespoons in a small cup of warm water. (tastes the best). Make sure you stir it and taken best like a "shot". I really don't mind it. I look at it as feeding the health gut bacteria that works for me.

When do you ingest usually the clove of garlic? Was it with food or after food or right before food? Or on empty stomach like 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals?

Also, should I leave the chopped up clove of garlic for a few minutes in the air before ingesting it?

Thank you.

Posted by Sharon (Utah) on 02/24/2022

This is amazing. Thank you. I believe this has controlled my life for so many years. I do not do sugar, except on occasions. Its a very bad thing for me. I know when I get sick and do miso with brown rice and veggies I feel better, but it doesn't stay. My gut balance has been out of whack for soooo many years. I am just finding out about food grade HP therapy. I read someone's post that said she uses HP in her ears for postnasal drip (3 drops each ear) and it has helped with a multitude of ailments. I tried that yesterday and it did help tremendously. The body is a miracle and if I can get back to a healthy balance I will be so grateful. Thanks.

Hi, I have struggled with allergies, sinusitis, etc. But, I had my gall bladder out when I was very young, and I believe it has affected my immune fighting balance. I don't have the ability to break down fats, and the bile seems to keep fungus and bacteria at bay. I have been in the health food industry for years and I have tried many things but have not cured the problem yet.

And, interestingly enough when I have had to take antibiotics somehow I always feel better. That is because it is killing all of the bad bacteria. I have found a new remedy that I have tried as a result of getting Omicron, Hydrogen Peroxide. I have had tremendous mucous problem. So I am now (thanks to EC) doing HP in my ears, 3 drops. Just started but it seemed to make a difference right away. I am hopeful. I have been putting it in my humidifier too. My biggest problem is getting the good bacteria. I have tried it all. I love yogurt plain, but it's dairy and it seems counterproductive, mucous. Thanks.

Hi Anonomous (Everywhere, Usa),

Please, could you please elaborate on the Baking Soda(BS) in lemon juice mixture?

Did you mix the BS in only lemon juice, no water? If so, in how much lemon juice did you mix the 1/4 tsp. BS?

When did you drink the BS+lemon juice mixture in relation to meals? Like did you drink it during meals, or 30 min before meals or right after meals, or 2 hours after meals?

Also, an important detail is the brand of the coconut oil. The one you took obviously worked. Many coconut oils on the market are worthless. So which brand of coconut oil you took?

Thank you very much

Candida Comments
Posted by Chris (California ) on 09/08/2021

Hi, I have suffered from candida overgrowth when I became a truck driver. I had a variety of symptoms including skin fungal infections, skin rashes, cutaneous candidiasis, severe bloating, weight gain, blurry vision, hair loss, fatigue, and even some pre diabetic symptoms like blood sugar whiplash.

I quit my job and did a full candida cleanse using natural remedies.

It's been cleared for the most part but I noticed that right before the cleanse, I had a smallish lump on my upper right shoulder. I thought it was a big pimple since I usually have back acne. After the cleanse, most of the acne disappeared but not this thing. A year later, it's still there and now I have 4 more of these strange lumps.

I did a lot of research and learned that they were keloids. I've looked desperately for answers on how to get rid of them. I've used scar creams but nothing. I've heard of ppl using the same anti-candida remedies I've used during my cleanse to get rid of these things with varying success. However, they appear to be very resistant. I strongly suspect they have some relationship of when I had the worst part of my candida since I've almost always had back acne and this never happened before.

I've read that when a candida spore burrows its way in fresh tissue (wounds like acne), it tries to create a colony. However, candida is stealthy as it tricks and avoids your immune system so what your body does instead is envelopes it with your own skin cells to prevent it from spreading .. kind of similar to the mechanics of cancer.

Right now my current theory is that even though I've eliminated the majority of the candida symptoms, there's a possibility that I may still have some hiding deep in tissue and systemically... in the blood.

Does anyone have more information about this and possible treatments??

The guy that turned himself blue also brewed his with salt! This makes it bad. It accelerates the brewing but ruins it. The particles are too big cause the process was too fast and the bigger particles turned his skin blue. NEVER brew or consume silver water brewed with salt. It is bad.

There was a guy who took so much silver that he turned bluish. I think he took the wrong kind and way too much, like gallons instead of tablespoons. If you take the right kind and in the right dose, it'll be fine. Do some homework, learn as much as you can and then go for it.

Ted's Remedies
Posted by kk (Canada) on 02/08/2021

Hello, I am struggling with the Candida diet. When I try to find it on here I am unable to so I am going to make a post.

I started Ted's alkalizing protocols about a week or so ago. I have begun to eat less meat so I can alkalize.

I have been taking 1/2 tsp of baking soda and lemon 2x per day. And 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp sodium carbonate, and 1/4 tsp potassium carbonate. 30 min after meals.

The issue is that I have a rapid metabolism and poor digestion. I am usually around 150 lbs but I am just at 150 already. I know ill continue to lose weight if I don't get calories. This causes me anxiety. According to Ted, you are to limit fats on a Candida diet. I eat coconut oil. I don't consume any vegetable oils or processed foods. Been avoiding those for years. I have limited my organic butter. Cut out all gluten and dairy. I haven't been eating grains.

I would like to eat grains. I have some brown rice, amaranth, and quinoa here but I don't really know how to cook it. Soaking is required?

I know about nuts and seeds but I seem to have a hard time ingesting them. I am taking lecithin for liver congestion. Also dealing with heavy metals.

I have a complex web of issues and I really need to know how to eat Alkaline and eat for candida as well. Are sweet potatoes bad?

I am just wondering what I can and can not eat. What I can and can not eat in moderation...

Pretty confused here..

Colloidal Silver
Posted by Art (California ) on 11/07/2018 2173 posts

It is already well described in the literature that colloidal silver nanoparticles are a broad spectrum antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal and to a lesser extent antiparasitic.

The following studies suggest that it is also effective at fighting Candida Albicans and breaking down related biofilms. This can be useful information for people who are plagued by this fungal overgrowth along with other pathogen issues related to candida. Although colloidal silver nanoparticles (AGNP's) are potent in terms of their antipathogenic effects, candida is a tough pathogen to fight and will likely take an extended period of time to fight. Something interesting about AGNP's is that they have shown the ability to overcome bacteria that has become resistant to antibiotics and AGNP's have even shown synergy with some antibiotics. This is something you should discuss with your doctor to see if it is something you can try if you have been diagnosed with candida albicans.

Here are the links to those studies:

Hi Becky...If you have a fungal infection in the ear then this could just be an external symptom of systemic candida(infecting your blood). So you should continue with the anti-candida protocol.

You could also perhaps try using 1% solution of hydrogen peroxide. Fill a dropper with 1% HP and squirt it carefully and slowly into the infected ear. Tip your head and massage around the ear lightly and allow the HP to go deep into your ear passages. And yes, it will tickle and fizz which is proof enough that HP is killing the pathogens in your ear. If you can, keep the HP in your ear until the fizzing greatly reduces or stops. When you're finished just tip the HP out of your ear into the sink. You should use this protocol for both ears -- at least once a day until the infection disappears.

You should not really eat sweet fruit or honey of you have candida. Most sweet fruits contain fructose which is a favourite food for candida and other pathogens. So you should really try to avoid avoid sugar, carbohydrates and fruits as best you can if you have systemic candida issues.

You are also right -- I did eat fruit in the beginning when I took my protocol but eventually gave it up to good effect. Don't forget that was over 11 years ago -- I know a heck of alot more about candida now than I did all those years ago.

I must also admit that I do eat fruit now for breakfast depending on seasonal availability -- sometimes yellow mango or carabao mango, native pineapple (not Del Monte), pomelo (grandfather of the grapefruit), dalandan (small, sour native orange), rambutan (a bit like lychees), apple, lanzones, soursop (like graviola), grapes, calamansi (like small lime -- used in hot or cold sour drinks and dips), mangosteen, tamarind fruit(unprocessed), coconut water. Always fresh and never in excess.

To Bill ( Philippines) In the post above you state that you had changed your diet becoming more rice and fruit based. Did you eat fruit while ridding your body of Candida? I have a serious systemic infection with the worst in my ear from a long standing ear fungal infection. When I try fruit I feel like this ear area is pushing into my brain. MANY say we need fruit to clean out our body of acidosis. I am trying to get there but this situation is touchy and go. Diet extremely limited so it hard not to eat meat. Anyway am curious if you ate fruit while detoxing Candida? Thanks!

Posted by Flower's Mom (Pueblo Of Acoma, Nm) on 09/25/2018

Hi Sidney, I was diagnosed with candida overgrowth 3 years ago, mainly the result of taking inhaled corticosteroids for many years for asthma (which I no longer have BTW). Anyway, one of the best things that helped me get a handle on starving and killing it off was hydrogen peroxide therapy, using 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide diluted to a 1 to 11 ratio in distilled water. This therapy really helped clear out the pockets of fungus that kept showing themselves and really helped my body flush out the toxins. The full therapy takes a while to complete, but is very effective. Also I did not have any negative side effects at all.

What I did was put the drops of diluted H2O2 in 8 oz. of juice or tea and drank that every morning and afternoon on an empty stomach. I started with 3 drops and increased it by 1 drop every day until I reached 25 drops. I stayed at that level for 31 days before I started decreasing it by 1 or 2 drops until I reached a level of 15 drops. I stayed at that level for a couple of weeks before I decreased the dose again until I reached 10 drops, stayed at that again for a couple of weeks, and then decreased to 5 drops, and finally back to 3 drops, which I still maintain. To make the diluted solution, put 1 oz. of full strength 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide into a glass container and add 11 oz. of distilled water. This should be stored in the refrigerator. Using an eye-dropper, add the drops to the juice and drink it all at once. Candida is a very persistent and strong parasitic organism and will be fighting for its life once you begin the therapy. If at anytime you experience extreme detoxing symptoms, do not increase the drops until your body stabilizes. If necessary, drop back to the dose you were able to take and stay at that level until you feel able to resume increasing drops.

I hope this is helpful and I wish you all the best in your journey to good health! Flower's Mom

Hi Luda...Thanks for your comments. Regarding my own Candida problem, I managed to get rid of it completely about 11 years ago and it has never returned. Many people have the same problems as you -- they just cannot get rid of their candida. Or if they do, like you, it always suddenly comes back. This is really why it's so difficult to get rid of Candida because, for many people, it just keeps coming back and they can't understand it -- in other words, you never really got rid of all your candida in the first place because it was just hiding somewhere in your body waiting to reinfect you.

The anti-candida protocol that I advise people to take now is shown here.

The reason that people with candida problems seem to fail so often is perhaps because either they don't take the protocol properly or they cheat and eat sugar and carbohydrates when they shouldn't or they come off the protocol too soon because they think they are cured when candida is a still hiding safely somewhere in their body just waiting to pounce. They might also suddenly agree to be put on anti-biotics for other issues for a while by their doctor -- doing this is one of the major causes of serious candida issues. Taking anti-biotics is probably the worst thing you can do because it basically destroys all the good protective bacteria in your gut which now has no local immune defence, so the candida has free reign to suddenly rise up and dominate and will spread throughout your body very rapidly.

Lastly I would be the first to admit that it's very difficult for people to cure themselves with any anti-candida protocol because they really must take their protocol properly -- as stated -- or it won't work that well. This means that if you want to rid yourself of systemic candida issues then you really must be highly focused and have the willpower to do it.

Your dizziness and fogginess could be due to candida poisons or it could be due to an existing hypothyroid condition or it could be both. Best to get your thyroid checked and, when you do, you should insist that your doctor also check the levels of your Free T3 (triiodothyronine) levels which gives the most accurate result for the thyroid. If you just check Free T4(thyroxine), as doctors normally do, you stand a good chance of getting an inaccurate thyroid assessment. See this link for more information on the thyroid.

Lastly, it took me a whole year to cure my own systemic candida issues all those years ago. I actually thought I was cured after six months but I still stayed on the protocol for an extra six months to make absolutely sure because I knew that candida could hide. And when I say that I'm cured I mean that my systemic candida is gone. I can eat whatever I like -- including wheat, oats and milk as well as fruit and sugary foods now and then, without any issues. I also have no asthma or digestive problems or allergies(which can all be strong indicators for existing or latent candida issues).

Hi Bill, I'm interested in reading your story. I'm trying to be as strong as you but I'm having difficulty as I had candida a long time ago and got rid of it. But now its come back and I've had it for 2 years. I just can't seem to get rid of it. Just running in a circle of feeling better and again my acid goes up and candida comes back to attack me. I'm taking lots of natural medicine but still lots of dizziness and fogginess. I feel especially bad in the afternoons. I really don't know what to do. I don't eat bread or sugar. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it again?

Aloe vera gel is great for candida because it produces very little die off symptoms in my experience.

Chaparro Amargo Herb

Hi guys, just wanted to share with you guys some amazing results that ive had with chaparro amargo. It is a herb that cleanses the digestive system. Its just as good as an antifungal but with no die off symptoms because it doesnt kill candida just strips it off the walls of your system. Try it.

EC: Chaparro Amargo is called Crucifixion Thorn in English.

My dermatogist said no vinegar like BBQ sauce pickles mustard Worcester sauce and such. Anything made with vinegar, hmm. Wonder why. Hope you can help me with Candida. Thank you.

Hi, I'm Don and this is my story about candida. I'm 58 and I think I've suffered from systemic candida, most of my adult life, though I never heard a doctor say candida once. I found out about it on my own, the hard way. I had athletes foot from borrowing shoes when I was 20. That brought on nail fungus and I suffered that through my 20s. I was put on some sort of meds that I had to take for 6 months or so.

This started a chain reaction that I have dealt with, on and off for almost 40 years. In my 30s I had two operations in the groin for abscess. After three years and no healing in site, a lady in a health food store told me about a doctor in Toronto. I went to see Dr. Ravi Devgan 25 years ago. After telling him my story, he said "you've suffered enough lets just get you healed". he gave me a shot of vit c and b12 then he put a giant magnet on my butt. ( I know that's what I said lol) then he took out a needle, and it was a giant needle He told me it was ozone. This needle was at least and inch thick and 6 inches long and there was no liquid in it. It was a gas. Now keep in mind that I have had this wound on my vein that would not heal. Puss would keep weeping out of it. and it was painful And the doctor wanted to do another operation. So I let him put this ozone in my vein. I paid the man I think 300 dollars, and I left there thinking what in gods name have I done. But on the way home I reluctantly admitted, I was in less pain. When I got home I used my trusty mirror that I'd used for three years, to look at this little pain in the ass, and it looked a healthy pink colour.

I was healed in two weeks, it was amazing, ozone can cure so many things.

In my mid 40s, I went to the dentist for a cleaning, and they found tongue cancer. I had two operations on that. Before the first I went to see Ravi, and he told me he could fix this. I told him my family would kill me if I didn't follow the doctors. He convinced me that I should get a shot of ozone that it would at least help with the healing process. So not being afraid of ozone, I agreed.

I woke up after the first operation, in very little pain. And it healed really fast. So I went to the 30 day checkup and was told that the clearances were not met. and they had to cut more out. I went for the second operation. Boy do I regret that, without a shot of ozone, I woke up with my tongue hanging out of my mouth with lots of pain. Pain that lasted for years.

I also had stomach problems and sinus issues my whole adult life, all treated with countless rounds of anti-bionics. All this modern medicine is what has caused my Candida, which went away like a boomerang always coming back.

So this year I started taking dirt (diatomaceous earth), and what a ride this has been. After three weeks I started passing what looked like thin rice maybe pin worms. For weeks. I kept seeing different substances, in my stool. I got sick as well with mucus coming out my mouth, hard flemmy things coming out my lungs, and the rest coming out my butt.

I was in a real fight here, I had no idea how sick I was. So I started to take the borax protocol as well. Then more pin worms started, my god when will it end lol. After a week or two with both the DE and the borax I passed what looked like a small white oyster type of thing with what looked like white whisks coming off it. And then that was it, I went off the DE and the borax for a month or so but now I've decided to go back on the DE for perhaps a year or so. Sadly Ravi died about ten years or so ago, I would love have another shot of ozone. I've never written this all down before, so it was a little long winded.

In ending I would say run from allopathic doctors, from what I've suffered most was caused by them, and remember all cancer patients have one thing in common "Candida"........Don

Try going gluten-free. The gluten could be causing the rash.

Candida can travel through the bloodstream, or so I just read. I get a rash under my breast and the healthfood store advised using an ointment with GSE (grapefruit seed extract). The ointment is basically comprised of castor oil.

I have listened to a LOT of candida "rules" & everyone differs. One doc says there is a certain order ... cleansing first before attacking. I am anxiously awaiting to hear from you, as you seem to have it figured out ... without enriching the docs selling something. Thanking you in advance

Make sure you are not taking Vitamin C or citrus for about 2 hrs before and after the h202. tells you all about it under their cancer protocol.

Some doctors in Montreal found Niacinamide to be a potent fungal and aspergilla's killer. It basically kills Candida infections/pathogenic fungi. This of course is something genuis Ted already knew. Niacinamide is especially effective against candida. The human equivalent dose was 35 mg and it was only administered only once. A second dose of Niacinamide was given 8 hour later. However, even a single dose was effective. While this dose is on the high end for niacinamide, for most people it would still fall under 3g, which is what mainstream medicine officially considers the upper safety limit for niacinamide. Niacinamide can cure Candida infection with a single dose. I think taking caprylic acid a before to first dissolve biofilm and then take Niacinamide and I also took two a dissolved aspirin in a glass of water and took it with the niacinamide this was a strongly effective way to go after it. Of course the obvious stuff which is be on the anti-fungal diet, helps and expect a die off so do gentle detoxification to assist the body in the process of clearing and healing.

According to Dr. Wong's formula, the probiotic you want to include is Lactobacillus sporogenes, which is the same as bacillus coagulans, or the trade name Lactosporin (not sure if that is the proper spelling)

Hydrogen Peroxide

When it concerns hydrogen peroxide, less is more. Stay on the safe side with 1-5 drops in lots of water... It bleaches out clothes so it can certainly damage your internals.

My guess would be that your detoxing and not getting side effects from food grade peroxide.

Hey be careful though. You shouldn't consume too much baking soda. It tends to mess up your B12 absorption and this is important. I would check into this more.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil
Posted by Mmsg (Somewhere, Europe) on 12/02/2016

Theprof, sounds like your body is cleaning out.

Maybe it's better to go at it more slowly: take less, not more of the ACV and coconut oil.

Also, see what you can do to improve your diet.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil
Posted by Theprof (3rd World) on 11/30/2016

I think I have a severe Candida problem. I have a body wide, itchy rash, I get raised, oozy bumps on arms, back of neck, chest, upper back and face that cause burning and intense itch. The only relief I found for this was an otc antifungal cream. Eyes are also full of goop that strings out when I clean my eyes.

Bowels sometimes work OK, sometimes not. Sinuses are usaully clogged or I have a thin watery drip, hearing is diminished. Palms of hands have clusters of red spots below surface of skin that occasionally erupt. Almost always have brain fog and low to no energy. I feel like I've been beaten, I hurt all over. Sleep is erratic, sometimes 7 hrs, sometimes only 5 hrs, often waking in middle of the night. I never feel rested. Mood is subject to mild swings.

Problems started about 8 yrs ago after being hospitalized for a week and pumped full of steriods and antibiotics due to acute food poisoning and intestinal infection and have now reached a peak.

Two days ago I started drinking ACV (with mother)/water 3X a day and doing oil pulling with coconut oil. I also started swallowing one tablespoon of it daily (will increase this amount over the next 2 weeks) and using it in all cooking. Last night I noticed my tongue was entirely coated with thick white slime that was difficult to brush off. I have a tingling sensation all over my entire body and a constant mild headache. Sinus is now draining quite a bit of clear mucus. I noticed this morn that I now have slight lung congestion resulting in a light cough that produces a small amout of clear phelm. Stomach is bloated with lots of foul gas and I'm having soft BMs 2-3X a day. My urine is darker and has a strong bitter smell. Brain fog is much worse today. Diet is unchanged except for the addition of ACV and coconut oil and eating more raw onion and garlic. Plus I've doubled my water intake.

All I have available for use is pure coconut oil and ACV that someone brings to me.

Please, can anyone tell me if I have a severe Candida problem and if I'm doing the right thing with ACV and coconut oil?

I'm male, mid 60s, high blood pressure, PTSD.

Hi Julie

If you notice on this site with pretty much any issue or condition...there are multiple remedies mentioned because everyone is different. What works for one person may not work for someone else.

This site is all about answers! :) As far as the brewers yeast, simply do not consider it as an option for you your mind set can affect any results you are wanting for yourself. And perhaps lay off the hydrogen peroxide for a while, and can always restart it again at a later date if so inclined.

That being said. There are loads of ways to manage or get rid of frankly we all have some issue with balance of bacteria being 'off' at some point in our lives. Knowing how NOT to feed it, while also knowing what will help eliminate it, is what keeps it in check.

Good you are eating healthier as that is half of the issue. Stress however is another BIG contributor to Candida as it raises cortisol levels which then can increase blood sugar and well, we all know that yeast loves sugar. So how are you managing your stress on a DAILY basis?

Pau d' arco, garlic, olive leaf, organic unrefined coconut oil, infused oregano oil, food grade diatomaceous earth, all help kill the yeast/candida..I usually suggest 2 of these..start out with low doses so as not to overdo it initially.

As I'm big in mindset affecting health and our expectations...maybe try to soften your outlook from a 'nightmare' to an annoying situation you are simply in the process of fixing. ;)

Healthfully yours,

I am having a real hard time believing brewers yeast could be an answer to the horrible systemic Candida that I have been fighting against for years, I say this because every time I eat even a little bread Candida rears its ugly head and all my symptoms are back. I have been for most part, eating the healthiest foods, and no beverages but water. Food grade hydrogen peroxide I thought was the answer to my problems, it makes me feel symptom free, but I have to stay on a long term high dose to maintain and people are putting fear in me by saying long term use is highly dangerous. I am beside my self and think this nightmare will never go away, as you can tell it has me down today. I don't think there is any real cure, just ways to knock it back, and I have so many of them and spent a lot of money, has any of you ever heard or talked to anyone who has truly beat Candida?

Regarding turmeric and body odor when taking it:

I rescued an Akita, very ill and stressed. I added turmeric powder to his sardines and rice daily. He started to smell like cat pee. Didn't put it together until I read on an animal natural health blog that that odor is from ingesting turmeric, and the solution is to add cinnamon. It worked for Rocky. He is so healthy now and smells great. Vet is amazed at the transformation.

Hello, I have been on a candida diet for the past 5 weeks and I am taking turmeric. Any way I was taking a tablespoon of turmeric for maybe two to three weeks 3 times a day and my husband said I started smelling not good. I looked at the recipe and saw you only take a teaspoon so that's what I'm doing now. It also said take almond oil. I can't find almond oil, is coconut oil OK.? Well since I was taking so much I am having trouble having a bowl movement since I stopped taking so much the last two days I've had a bowl movement. But they say you have to have 3 bowel movements to get well. Is that so? They say you can take turpentine to get rid of candida but you have to have 3 bowel movements before you use it, but you didn't use it and got better, is that right? What to I have to take to have more bowel movements. Carol
