I have been dealing with Candida for over a decade and just bought your book. I have many questions for you, but will start off with:
I'm fearful that taking the Lugol's iodine will conflict with the Armour Thyroid I'm taking. Would you suggest not taking both at the same time? Or will they not affect one another? I just dealt with having too high a dosage of Armour and it was hell, but I'm afraid to completely go off Armour. Your thoughts are appreciated!

Where can I get a top quality oral magnesium chloride powder/capsule? Is it even better to use a transdermal magnesium chloride oil? I have purchased and am reading the book, "Candida Killing so sweetly" by Bill Thompson

I've been on the Master Cleanse diet for 10 days and plan on continuing it for 30 in hopes to rid myself of Candida along with bad breath, which is one of the horrible side effects. However, I have not noticed any improvement and it gets me nervous because the fast is recommended 3-10 days for the average person, but you can do it up to 40. I guess what I'm wanting to know is, is the grade b maple syrup that's in the lemon drink helping or hurting my candida?
I treated candida with Monarda tea & frequency generator backed with infrared:ranges from 2.5-12.o cps.The person was medically confirmed to have extensive candida overgrowth.They were medically confirmed to be free of infection the next day.Regarding parasites: I occasionally use diatomaceous earth powder 1 tbsp. which acts as fine razor like blades & shreds the buggers. It will not harm the host. blessings.
HI U BILL, , , , , , , , as you know I's jus smart enough to be dangerous. I think this is a candida thing, but I have been doing your H2O2 in my ears as well as ozone ear insufflation. At first, my ears would shed lots of stuff. It is becoming less with time and treatments. What is happening?
Am I making progress? When I used ozonated olive oil all heck took place. That is some potent stuff. I won't do that again until I diminish this fungus. Please explain to me what is taking place.
As you know I'm doing my rife machine for my cancer protocol, could that be helping?

When using STS, Methylene Blue, turpentine (Georgia version), sodium bicarb, trisodium phosphate, iodine, and borax...is there any general guidance on how to time taking these? IE, I know from drugs dot com there might be interaction between iodine and MB. I also know that turpentine should be taken on its own at night, so that means STS and turpentine are taken separately on different nights. Any other helpful advice? Main goal is candida killing, hoping the candida is what is causing my hypothyroid/migraines/brain fog.

I felt an oncoming yeast infection, so I thought I'd do a little of everything to knock it out. I drank a couple cups of Pau d'arco tea, lots of garlic (the candida cleanse formula) tumeric, yogurt and what I really think did it... GSE. I took about 10-12 drops in about 12 oz of water. I took all of this within the span of an entire day, and by the end of it, I felt like I had a bad flu. Terrible body aches that woke me up, night sweats, headache, no appetite. This lasted for about 2.5 days. The only thing that helped mildly with the pain was vicodin (had it from wisdom teeth exaction)
I had candida coming out of everywhere.. it was nasty, but I knew it worked. Afterward I felt fine but am scared to take GSE again, at least that much. Start slow
CANDIDA with complications/ heart palpitations / sleep apnea: Good day, I have emailed Ted a week ago but have not yet received an answer. I would like to get some feedback from the forum on the Methylene blue causing extreme dizziness and the insomnia / extreme fatigue issue / sleep apnea issue which he has for more than 2 years.
We have identified that Methylene Blue causes the extreme dizziness, but I'm not sure why. Should he stay off from it completely? MB has so many benefits (I'm using it myself) and want to know if he can start using it again at later point in time.
My son has had Candida for 15plus years. He started below remedy about 9 days ago. I believe he has systemic candida. The last 3 yrs he has difficulty sleeping with symptoms of sleep apnea. He hasn't been tested for sleep apnea yet, but he also stops breathing while awake for +/- 20 seconds which is followed by difficulty swallowing and has to drink water.
Extreme chronic fatigue due to lack of sleep, irregular heartbeat / palpitations are current symptoms. He also started to get pains around the heart. After a week on the candida remedy, he is feeling more tired, but of more concerns is that the dizziness and brainfog has increased as well.
He is currently taking:
- Alkalizing formula: Lemon with BS and BS in the evening before he goes to bed
- Lugols Iodine : 5% mouth wash 3x per day
- Cream for Candida rash around mouth : Coconut Oil with Lavender essential oil
- Borax- 1/8 to 1/4 tspn in one litre water
- Camelia Sinensis Drops: (Green tea extract) 10-15 drops x 3
- SOLAL anti-parasite ( 6 capsules per day containing Golden seal root (Hydrastis Canadensis) 400mg, Wormwood (above ground parts) (Artemisia absinthium) 500mg, Pau D'Arco Inner Bark (Taheebo tabebui) 500mg, Black Walnut Hull (Juglans Nigra) 1000mg ) He has been using this for 3 weeks.. There's a week left to complete the course.
- Methylene Blue 0. 1% 4-6 drops 2x daily
- Vitamin C
- Magnesium Chelate 450 mg
- Zinc gluconate
- Vitamin B3 nicotinamide 100mg 3x p.d.
- Milk Thistle with dandelion
- Molobdenum: He is not using this due to difficulty obtaining in quantities more than 10mcg. It's also combined in general vitamin products.
I would appreciate it if you could review the above remedies he is currently taking and advise if we are on the right track, and if you believe that the symptoms mentioned I.E. Heart palpitations, sleeping problems, etc could be linked to the Candida and proper remedy for sleep problems. I am especially worried about his heart and increased dizziness.Your valuable insight and advice would be highly appreciated. Greatest gratitude.
I was reading on the internet that candida is very hard to kill because when feels that is been attacked spreads spores and those spores you cannot kill them and also say that candida is very smart and it can mutate itself and become immune to the remedies we start using so I will subject to kill it by not giving any sugar for more than a month and then when she is weak then attack it with all the remedies we now like garlic pills, apple cider' baking soda, oregano oil , lemongrass. Graepfruit Seed extract, coconut oil, sweet basil extract, colloidal silver, bentonite powder, olive leaf oil, all this above kill candida to. I suspect it is better to weak it before that way you don't give it a chance to mutate good luck to all.
I had suffered from candida for nearly 30 years. As the years went by I have friends who have been on too many antibiotics or had a bad diet and started suffering from it as well. I am overwhelmed at the number of people I meet who have digestive problems now. I started giving my friends a rotating supplement program that I use myself. I sourced out the cheapest suppliers, used only the best supplement companies and put the rotated supplements in an easy weekly pill box. You should do a strict full blown cleanse first as this is the maintenance regime. The rotation is something like this:
- Mon - olive leaf extract
- Tues- l-glutamine
- Wed - sporogenes (probiotic - no need for fridge)
- Thus - grapefruit seed extract
- Fri - caprylic acid capsules
- Sat- garlic capsules
- Sun - berberine
- Week 2
- Mon - Pau d`arco etc etc....
If you want me to send you my regime ... Let me know. I think I have been just as frustrated as the legions of people who have severely suffered from candida... Left to our own devices to sort it out without the help or support from regular MDs. I will send it to you at cost. Not in it to make a profit - just want to help out wherever you are in this world! .
Hi All, I take apple cider vinegar 4 drops with tsp honey bit of warm water to stir then add cold and knock it back only once a day it has helped my bad back no end but why would anyone want to take their concoctions more than once a day - anything that is taken too much is not good for you.
I also take quarter tsp of Bicarbonate of soda in half a glass of water for my heartburn when it comes on which is about once a week now whereas before I lived on rennies - then the doctor put me on some sort of antacid tablets that had side effects like putting on weight. So I stick to carrying my bicarbonate of soda in an old tablet bottle.
Re CANDIDA - I got rid of mine that I had had for years on and off with the following:
2 -3 half capfuls of Aloe vera (cranberry flavour) juice (this is like a weed killer for yeast) 1 -2 acidophulus tablets (10 million per capsule) as the 4 Billion suggested capsule gave me a temperature. I gave up all sugars, all yeasts incl alcohol except Apple cider vinegar, and gave up mushrooms as suggested in the candida book - this I did (and noted on paper each day my headaches etc) I did this for 3 months suggested and all my ailments went away now I keep aloe vera in the fridge for when I need it (opened it only lasts a month) and always keep taking my acidophulus tablets 1 or 2 a day - they are the good bacteria that is suppossed to be found in Actimal and Yogurts and Yacult except that the later 3 things have sugar in them and make you fat hence contarindications.
I now take Selinium tablets - antioxidents once a day and a squirt of lemon juice also antioxident to ward of colds - I watched a documentary that said that oxygen oxideses our body like rust and therefore we should all be taking antioxidents because of this and the chemicals in the air.
Look after yourselfs and don't overdo your concoctions but personally I would do things over a course of a month or 2 -3 only and if it does not clear up then think again.
I have areas on my face, primarily the sides of my nose and between my eyes, that are very prone to pimples and even some cystic type acne. Had this for at least 15 years now, since puberty. The ones on the sides of my nose seem to be there permanently :( Sometimes they get better for a bit, then come back.
i have been trying using coconut oil, ACV, and H2o2 with miminal results. My theory is that they are pockets of candida (i have a systemic issue that I am treating). can anyone suggest a *strong* topical remedy? thank you!

First off, I would like to thank Earth Clinic!!! You may have saved my marriage! I was at my wits end with my husband. He has been in an ill dispostion for years. He has really bad depression, no concentration (he says his brain just feels foggy all the time), he has gained weight, he is now 330lbs! His depression comes along with a bad temper and extreme mood swings. He has always been like this, since I met him ten years ago but the past 2 years has gotten really bad. Well, I decided to treat him naturally for his depression since I have sucessfully treated myself naturally for different things over the years (haven't been to a docter in probably 15 years aside from The prenatal care and delivery of our 2 kids). I started giving him St. John's Wort, fish oil and a good multi vitamin. It helped slightly but was not enough for me to keep putting up with it. So about 2 days ago I started doing more research and found out about Candida. I have gone through this with my dogs so I was slightly familiar with it. Anyways I found a test to take to see if you have it! My husband definately has it! I think he was born with it! His mom seems to have had the same symptoms most of her adult life. His symptoms are; Chronic Athlete's foot (it's so bad, his feet are covered with probably a good 2 inches of solid callus. ), his armpits are brown with major pimples all over them, itchy anus, itchy ears, itchy and raw belly button, his belly is huge and hard, extreme gas and bloating, extreme appetite, horrible breath and body odor, acne on his rear, recurring jock itch, constant headaches, recurring bronchitis, joint and muscle pain, foggy vision And as mentioned above major mood swings, depression, anger problems... the symptoms can go on forever.
Well he had already agreed to go on a diet to lose weight because I am only 120lbs and it was becoming a real problem for me. It may sound superficial but it is causing real problems for me in the bedroom dept. Because his weight on top of me truly hurts. So I have now eliminated all sugars and refined flours and grains temporally. I plan to reintroduce whole grains after we've gotten the Candida under control. I have also started to give him fresh lemon juice with baking soda, fresh crushed garlic and warm water 3x's a day. Today I am going to get him som VCO and good pro-prebiotics. I really hope all this helps because I truly feel he has this so bad he could die soon from it if not treated immediately. He is only 29 years old and he is just miserable! And so is everyone else who has to live with him!
Anyways I have a few questions. First, should I be treating myself, my children and my animals also? My son, who is 4, Has bumpy, rashy arms, mild asthma, recurring broncitis and Gets thrush about once a year, usually after taking antibiotics, but is quickly cured with nystatin and lots of yogurt. He also had thrush for the first 6 months of his life, which I believe was due to the major iv antibiotics he was put on immediatly after birth (my water broke 2 days before he was delivered, it was a precaution). My daughter who is only 2 years old has mood swings compararable to a menapausal woman. I'm not exaggerating at all about her temperment, it can be unbearable at times. Second, does anyone recommend anything else for my familiy's condition? I must get rid of this monster afflicting us!
Thanks again Earth Clinic! I hope to reply back soon with good news!

Hi there, I started oil pulling with sesame oil about 10 days and it has been great so far. After 2-3 days, my BM increased and I got worried about my gluten intolerance but figured out it was the effect of oil pulling. I am also experiencing a sinus mucus draining so for the first days, I even quit my sinus rinse because my sinus was getting cleared with oil pulling. Now, things have changed. Anyway, on this forum I learned that coconut oil is another great oil and that I can also take it internally. I researched and now have a nice jar of coconut oil. All my life, I had issues with my digestive system and I started having reflux at age 12 maybe before.
I took a table spoon of coconut oil and wow what a bad nausea I experienced! It kept me away from food yesterday.
Today, I took baking soda in water before breakfast (thanks Ted) and had breakfast about 20 minutes later. I started eating cucumber one of the rare food that helps me with acid reflux. But had 2 small slice of gluten free bread with olive oil and almond better.
I really want to do something about candida because it can only be that that is keeping me behind. I am gluten free for 3 months and even though I feel much better I still don't have all my energy back.
I don't use sugar anywhere but I love fruits. My favourite fruits of the moment are pommegrenade, pinneaple and banana. I tried other fruits too. I have heard tht the diet for candida means no fruits at all. Is that right?
How long should I stay away from them?
I don't mind a paleo diet aka veggies meat with some rice because that's how I feel the best. Almost anything else causes me reflux as soon as I have more than 3 spoon and sometimes even with very little food.
Here is my plan when I start my candida treatment:
-Take things slowly and then increase treatment
-Use coconut oil, oil of oregano, garlic, cloves, ginger and a few other things I read about.
-Alkalize my system by eating veggies like kale, cucumber celery lemon. I love the juice I make with kale cucumber and pineapple with lemon but don't know if pineaple will be a bad choice since it is a fruit.
-I snake with nuts like almond and seeds like sunflower seeds. I wonder if I should avoid the salt I know it is as good as non salty. Also, should I avoid pistachio because they are acidic and not like almond.
I also have reaction to different foods unless it is not the food but the combination. So I am thinking of eliminating eggs, soya, corn, caffeine whiteners I tried even almond milk and coconut milk. It is ok the first time but because I like having my caffeine after my meal, I ended up having reflux.
Any of suggestions will be appreciated. I need help with the coconut oil and how I can stand keep using... I never like its smell. Also, can I mix all the ingredient like coconut, oil of oreganno, garlic, clove etc and use it as a one time treatment? I drink chai tea where I put cardamone and cinnemon with clove are these other spices good for candida? These days even black tea can give me reflux should I stop the tea too?
Sorry for the long message and thank you.
