I have recently developed serious candida for the second time in 20 years. I was nauseated 24/7 but didn't know why -- until I figured out that I had stomach candida and that that was the cause of the nausea. (The why of how I got candida this time is a longer story that I'll skip.) I know all the candida remedies from my first bout 20 years ago -- and I decide to start with Grapefruit Seed Extract - which I've been taking for the past 3 days. The amazing thing is it's great clinical proof of the efficacy of GSE against candida. The moment I take the stuff the nausea decreases or goes away. Last night I made the mistake of having bread -- and within an hour or so I was really nauseated. I took the GSE and within minutes the nausea level had greatly declined. Great stuff. Just make sure you get a recognized brand that regularly tests their product so you don't run into the toxic contamination issue.

I have taken GSE off and on for years so I have a high tolerance and went straight to 15 drops in water 3 times a day -- pretty bitter -- but I'll drink as much I want of that glass over a period of about 4 hours until it runs out and then do it again.

FOR THOSE WHO WERE SUCCESSFUL OR NOT USING GSE: Did you also go on the strict candida diet? And if you did how long were you on it? How long before you saw results?

I have been taking GSE for some months now and it has really helped with this Monster, however, i am still eating the sugars and breads, not like I was, conversely, I want to know if anyone has taken GSE and continued to eat sweets/bread and the Monster was kept bay?

Aple cider vinegar is great for suppressing sweet tooth! Whenever I have cravings I try to drink it. :-) However, if you have to have something sweet then instead of sugar use Xylitol, a natural sweetener extracted from birch cellulose. Xylitol does not feed candida, it is antifungal. That is what I use and it taste really good with no after taste.

Also, another option is Stevia, personally I have never tried it and cannot comment on it. Good luck!

You might want to try L-Glutamine, an amino acid. It is supposed to help reduce sugar cravings.

I used ACV to get rid of my sweet cravings. Takes several days to work. I take it every day and after about three days my sugar and major food craving are gone.

I had a very bad case of Candida last winter. It was extremely harsh. My crotch and butt were itchy and sometimes burned, my mood was agitated, I was suffering from insomnia. To finally get rid of the ailment, I went on a sugar-free diet and took some medication from my doctor. This was great. It killed all the candida within days. My problem then became a severe flu, as my body was not getting rid of the dead candida fast enough. My body was basically experiencing toxic shock. I took tons of fiber, drank gallons of water over several days. This finally made me feel better. Now, I just take Grapefruit seed extract in water every few days to keep the candida at bay. It is very effective at eliminating candida after it has set in as well, but you should take a diuretic to get the dead candida out of you. For candida, take 5-6 drops of GSE in 20oz of water. Drink in one sitting. Do this once each day for 3 days. May cause heartburn. If so, water down the dosage or use fewer drops (3-4).

I would like to comment on heavy metal detox candida and other symptoms associated.

First of all candida and parasites form a synergy with heavy metals in your body and create biofilms to shield themselves from the body's mechanisms of defense. It is scientifically proved that candida and parasites can hold even hundreds of times more heavy metals than their host. So this way their demand is always supplied by their host ( lead in apple, grape and other commercial juices, chocolate, red and white wine as well as old paints and fertilizers. Mercury in fish, high fructose syrup, amalgams and pollution from the manufacturing process and energy saving light bulbs to mention some) increase the deterioration in our health. What to do? First, identify your heavy metal toxicity sources in order to reduce or eliminate you exposure, then modify your diet to stop feeding the creepy creatures in your system, start taking supplements to reduce your parasites and candida burden, last start a meticulous chelation that starts slowly, since your candida might overgrow as you start pulling mercury and lead from within your deeper tissues to your stomach, the most recomendable therapy, in my opinion, is that of Dr Andrew Cuttler described in his book Amalgam Illness.

Please do yourself a favor before starting any chelation protocol, inform yourself well and never start an iv chelation since pulling too many metals suddenly could be dangerous for your body. :)

Before you jump into curing your candida, try to figure out the unlying cause first. I have been trying different candida remedies...oil of oregano, parasite cleanses, cleaning up my diet...and I still suffer from all the terrible symptoms. One day I started reading out metal toxicity and how candida is farmed by the body to absorb the extra metal. So I decided to order an oral chelation kit for metal detox and something interesting has happened since. I have been on the program for about two weeks with no major physical improvements. But this morning I went to have my bi-monthly colonic and the lady who administers noticed that a LOT of yeast was coming out of my body! I do believe the metal detox is helping and the yeast is dying. Since then I have been feeling better today...more energy, slightly clearer head, and NO insane sugar cravings. If you have metal fillings like I do then you may want to seriously consider doing a metal detox and see if that helps with the candida. I plan to have my metal fillings removed when I have the money to do so. And make sure you get a good oral chelation kit, not just a cheap bottle of EDTA. Do your research...you need a good combination of other herbs as well to do a successful detox as well as a digestible antioxidant formula.

Instead of oral chelation please try an IV Chelation Treatment. Much quicker acting. The cost here is $100.00 for each treatment.

Trish, I completely agree with you that candida is the body's way of absorbing heavy metals. I have been on an eight year quest and have tried EVERYTHING, and I mean everything!!! When people kill off candida I don't think it is a Die Off. I have read that it is the body reabsorbing Mercury> I have tried garlic, cayenne pepper, H2O2, Threelac, Miracle Mineral supplement, Coconut oil, Caprilic acid, Aregeno oil, baking soda, I could go on and on. I mean it is the most frustrating thing ever, but once people realize that they have #1 take out their Amalgam fillings, then chelate the mercury from the body, then they will get rid of the candida too. I saw a huge reduction in my fatigue and other symptoms when I had my mercury fillings taken out, it was no coincedence, it was literally two days after they were out I was feeling much much better. Now ever since that time I have been trying to figure out the best way to chelate the mercury... I am currently trying Fulvic Acid w/ plant based minerals. supposedly this is the very best and quickest way to do so. I'm thinking about taking H2O2 to kill the candida then taking chlorella directly after to trap it and excrete it. If anyone else knows of a better way Please let me know too. By the way I Love this website, it is helping me to help others with their health problems... Thanks

How did the fulvic acid work with the plant based minerals? Did you take the H2O2 and chlorella? I would greatly appreciate hearing how it went!

Hi, I started h2o2 therapy at 3 drops 3x a day in 8oz water, increasing by drop a day. Now I am at 15 drops dose, but in last few days I experienced gas and indigestion like never before. My shoulder/neck/head hurts after meal until I sip ginger juice to help digestion.

Most of the times I used distilled water, expect few times at work using filtered from watercooler, before figured to bring bottle from home with me. I have a concern if I continue, it may end up doing more harm than help. Is there anything related to h2o2 you would know to be the reason for these side effects?

Anything to help me continue? EC nation advice highly appreciated.

B: I would drop the H2O2 treatment for now and try other natural remedies like Coconut Oil, Oregano. There are many types infection in the gut so don't assume for sure it's candida only.

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

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

Make sure you know the proper protocol and do not go over a certain amt of drops. Maybe your body can only take under 15. I also believe you should not eat within a certain time before and after taking it.

I am battling my systemic candidiasis now for a month now with H2O2 10 drops of 35%FG in 8 oz of distilled water 2-3 times a day on empty stomach. I've been doing this for a month now. I feel a lot more energy and mind clarity but the yeast infection came back a week after my period was over... When did other people discover that your candida symptoms were gone?

When using hydrogen peroxide, please make sure to be eating a diet high in anti-oxidant foods. (You can check what's called the ORAC value of foods on the internet. Also vitamin E, C, and beta-carotene are high in antioxidants. My favorite edible antioxidant are Goji berries--very high ORAC value. ) Oxygen can be wonderful medicine, but too much of it can also be deadly--especially at the cellular level. Hydrogen peroxide is H2O2, whereas water is H2O. The theory is that the extra O separates from the hydrogen peroxide molecule and oxidizes the yeast killing it. But H2O2 simultaneously interacts with our tissues. When that extra Oxygen atom spins off of the hydrogen peroxide, it becomes what we call a free radical and can damage our tissue. That is why it is so important to follow strict guidelines in using it. The book The One Minute Cure by Cavanaugh has a very conservative dosing schedule which I can recommend. Btw, I am an acupuncturist and homeopath, and have used all of the various remedies recommended on this site with my patients for years. I basically sytematically rotate remedies until I find the one that works for that particular patient. My conclusion is that this has as much to do with the species of Candida, as with the particular patient's gut ecosystem. Best wishes to all!

Hello, I want to try hydrogen peroxide against my Candida infection and I started vomiting. Is there any way to avoid this side effect? Thanks a lot.

Tommy, make sure you are using DISTILLED water, and not ingesting anything else 3 hours before or 1 hour after. I do my regimen in the morning after not eating for 8 hours at night. Also, make sure you are starting with just one drop in water, and go up from there.

Hi there, I "discovered" your site at the beginning of this year and since then I have been reading as much as I could. I found the info here very usefull. I have been fighting candida for at least 3 years now, and I tried anything and everything to get rid of it. Of course, for about 2 years I trausted the doctors and ingested a lot of pills who were supposed to help me but didn't. I also used different lotions and ovules internally. My husband treated himself at the same time although he never had any symptoms.

No matter what I tried, I maybe felt better for a few days and then, the infection came back stronger than before.

In February 2009 I started taking hydrogen peroxide 35% orally diluted in DISTILLED WATER. I took it only once in the morning because, in my opinion, only then is my stomach empty. Also, my daily schedule didn't allow me to take it during the day. I tought that if it were to work, I probably need to be patient because it will take more time than normal.

So, I started with 5 drops in water and increased by 1 drop daily until I reached 30 drops. 30 drops daily was my maximum dose. I stayed on it for 3 months and I can report now that I feel great. No more yeast infection, no more itching, skin rush, I have lots of energy and I wake up all by myself (no alarm clock) in the morning after 7-8 hours of sleep.

Side effects I experienced: I had a continuous heartburn for 4 days shortly after I started (probably when I was taking about 10 drops a day). Also, in 3 or 4 separate occasions I had diareea which passed by itself by the end of the day.

I would say that it really worked for me.
Good luck to all.
God bless.

I have just started the 35% h202 program for candida. I am up to 3 drops in distilled water three times daily. It seems to be giving me very frequent and very runny bowel movements-4-5times a day. Just wonder if this is side effect that will go away because I don't want to loose weight as I am only 112-lbs now. Will this subside soon??? Anyone have similar effects? Sure would appreciate any input, Thanks, Bev.

When you have runny bowel movements drink 1tbl spoon of Apple Cider vinegar mixed with water. It helps almost instantly. How is the H2O2 treatment going so far?

What you are experiencing is a detox/die-off effect...it will improve over time.

the only thing that positively works is liquid oxygen in hydrogen peroxide. diets will keep it at bay only temporarily, but if you want the problem destroyed oxygen is the only way to do it and I mean the only way period. I recommend a product based in aloe vera from phoenix nutritionals. google it to find it on the web. it works and is the only thing that will positively work. there are other products on the market as well and they will also work. oxygen is the key to destroying candida. get ready for some die-off reactions and you may not feel well for a few days as the dead fungus moves out of the body.

I am now still in early stages of using H2O2, so am avidly reading the entries for Candida.

For herpes, I was clued into l-lysine some years ago, and it is great. Foods high in L-lysine are listed on the internet, and also foods high in arginine, which is in chocolate, nuts, popcorn, brown rice and other foods. Arginine is used in labs to GROW the Herpes virus, so those chocolate and nut snacks can give you an attack! I have purchased l-lysine over the internet and also at some grocers and health food stores, and just keep it handy. Often when I want to eat some chocolate, I pop some l-lysine soon after and no problem. It is a harmless amino acid and resets the balance in your system.

Candex is very good for Candida but so expensive, I am happily taking the H2O2 and wanted to check increasing the dosage from 8 drops in an 8 oz glass of water 3X a day and here is all this information for me! My Mother and Grandmother died young of breast cancer and I began researching things that cure cancer as I realize the AMA is not chock full of 100% doctors, and found ESSIAC. The herbs can be purchased pre-measured from the Herb Products Company in Hollywood. I am 62, teach yoga and breathing techniques, doing them myself daily and am very healthy!
