I had a case of full blown systemic candida albicans, as I found out through confirming my symptoms with those posted on the Internet. The doctor wanted to hospitalize me but we had no insurance and I had little trust of giving myself to a medical system that did not even officially recognize my affliction.

Daily - I drank sodium borate water [1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon to a quart of water p/day].

Also, I followed a strict diet of no bread, no sugar and no vitamins, for a period of about 4-1/2 months during which time I starved the Candida to death.

During this time I did enjoy Xylitol in place of sugar [ a healthy natural sugar that kills fungus, molds and bacteria]. You can buy it at the health food store as well as Xylitol gums and mints. Beware of the cheaper gums at the discount stores as they generally contain aspartame, while advertising minimal amounts of Xylitol. I also enjoyed lemonade and cocoa drinks that I made with Xylitol. I also enjoyed my pero with no Xylitol or sugar.

I had read about Zell Oxygen as an ultimate cure for candida. I was finally able to get some from where they have the best pricing and availability of anywhere i could find.

When it arrived I had finally starved off the candida. So it was a bit of a stretch - but the Zell Oxygen instructions say to take this product with fruit juice [sugar]. To support the new beneficial yeast that feeds the body and nourishes the cells.

Well I did take the fruit juice and Zell Oxygen as instructed. What happened first was I noticed the candida spores germinated in a short burst - so the newly coming beneficial Zell Oxygen Yeast could move in and take over as it is an air loving beneficial yeast.

I followed the standard daily minimum dose and at the end of one bottle and one month I was free of candida and shortly after I was able to start incorporating sugar into my diet with no adverse effects.

P.S.: The people at regenerative nutrition have an excellent resource to help you find whatever you may need to get better - whatever your affliction may be.

selenium deficency and anemia appear to be the biggest factor in promoting candida growth. years ago when i had hypot i also had a severe candida infection. i found a book titled candida silver (mercury) fillings and the immune system" which eventually led me to getting my mercury fillings removed. following this and supplementation with zinc and selenium, my candida and hypot both ended. Experiments with animals show that candida growth can be increased by selenium deprivation and reduced by selenium supplementation. Since mercury depletes selenium,it makes sense that candida is higher when there are mercury fillings in the teeth. Other studies show that anemia and iron deficiency increased candida growth. there are some studies suggesting that b12 and folic acid deficiencies may be involved in candida, since deficiencies of these lead to anemia. In anemia and iron deficiency friendly bacteria cannot grow well in the body. A lack of these bacteria probably is a key factor which promotes candida growth, since candida is a fungal growth rather than a bacteria growth. Another study showed that women with recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis correlate very with the deficiencies associated with hypothyroidism. the key nutrient deficiencies are probably selenium, zinc, iron and folic acid. Taking multi vitimins just doesnt seem to work. You need to buy the vitimins minerals indivudally its worth it to rid your self of candida. I found this cure after months of research. If you sweat under your arms, taking magnesium will help this a lot. Took 3pills 3 times a day execpt for the iron, zinc 2 times a day. This really does work it doesnt take very long for this to work less than 5 days. There will sill be some itching from the fungus is still in your skin.

I have been struggling with Candida for over 12 years, and in the past five have found some items that help me considerably. (Yes, they will be described as products, although the breakdown of ingredience could be researched more) I found a Naturopath and he had been working with Candida patience for 25 years. I had large cystic acne on my face and chin line only, and had been struggling with the cysts once I started a yeast free diet in my late twenties. I also was having lower back pain that would wake me up from 4-5 a.m. (I found out it was also related to the Candida die-off or growth. This back pain went away once I got on a diet that worked for me.) I also, found I had developed allergies to food once I started to kill off the yeast, and probably had/have leaky gut. I did muscle testing on some food products, which the doctor told me was only 85 percent accurate, and at that point I didn't care. I was at the end of my rope fighting yeast and living with large boils of puss exploding from my face.

I began to avoid the food that was suggested, but I also began to take supplements, we increased some and decreased others. I will tell you I was tired and defeated and just wanted a normal life back, so this is my story of what worked for me.

I have a lot of metal fillings in my teeth, so there was a thought of possible mercury sensitivity, and yes they wanted me to get the filling replaced, but I couldn't afford it. There was also the mention that the yeast encircles heavy metals safely eliminating them from your body. I started my morning with a glass of water and a drop (starting at one and increasing to five) of liquid Selenium. I found this made a large difference in either the "fog" from the dye-off or the general Candida feeling. I was more alert and awake, my energy level increased from taking this.

I was tested with a lower thyroid by taking my temperature every morning. My doctor suggested taking edible Iodine. I also took this in water after my Selenium, 2 drops twice a day, or I just did four in the morning.

I was to avoid the food I was tested to not respond well too, and that included for me, wheat, gluten, dairy, chocolate, coffee, beef and pork. I didn't even look at sugar items at this point, and had been doing low-carb diets for sometime now. So I was allowed to included red potatoes and brown rice, lots of leafy greens(twice a day if possible), non-starchy veggies, and the rest I filled in with protein, nuts, and on special occasions berries (raspberries or blueberries)

If I was to advise someone on a product it would be the Tanalbit I took. I took it twice a day before lunch and dinner, two tablets each time. There is another version of it I took that had no dairy, starts with a C. It's a type of Zinc. I also tried taking Zinc supplements but everything I took made me nauseous. The only one I found that could stay down was Optizinc, probably the type or compound. I took pro-biotics an hour after each meal.

Those items helped me most of all. Also taking a very good food based vitamin to make sure I was covered. I was successful for a few years and then decided I wanted to taste some of the sweet life again. I still keep up with the Zinc and Pro-biotics, but I'm now back on the diet working to get rid of some nail fungus. I'm taking Oregano oil for 6 weeks to see how it goes, on top of using the topical remedies I've read from your site here.

Just wanted to share what has helped and worked for me. Thank you, and just to let you know, there is life after Candida... just keep at it, the fog will lift and your head will seem clearer again!

Hello. I am wanting to start taking Ted's LIME BICARBONATE FORMULA. I was wanting to know how much baking soda to add to the squeezed lime. It just says add until the fizzing stops. I don't want to add too much baking soda so can someone please tell me how approximately how much to add? Thank you

Mary, personally, I found that about 1/4 teaspoon baking soda or less to 1/2 juiced lemon or lime, is about right.

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..

Hi I have a question for Ted. I'm confused by Ted's recipe for taking ACV and Baking soda and I also think with water. I would like to try this recipe after eating a meal, but not sure how much of each to take and how much water, I have read the links but nothing seems to be clear. Any info will be great on this...


Baking Soda =

Water =

How many times a day?

Ive had sinus problems for years and have been trying everything and Ive come to the conclusion that I most likely have Candida, and would like to try this.

Andrew, I have also had sinuses problems for many years (they stopped completely for 7 years and started again last year). I am quite all right now. I am taking Echinacea and also powder Spirullina, Chlorella and Chlorophyll. No idea whether this is what has been helping.... My nose was running the whole time and I was sneezing a lot especially during the night and when I woke up. I also think that I have Candida so little by little I am starting the diet! And I am going to try woodworm capsules advised by Gerald Green (I reviewed his book on the book section! ).

(Charlottetown, Pei, Canada)

Hi Francisca I don't have the usual runny nose or anything like that, I have inflammation on my right nostril that seems to be constantly blocked over the past 30 years but the last 5 to 10 yrs has been a lot worse. Night time is usally the worst time. Ive been trying everything from Coconut oil to ACV to Colloidal silver to cayenne pepper tp grapefruit seed extract but Apple Cider Vinegar seems to keep it under control most times. Ive tried this ACV -two tablespoons with 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda and 8 ozs of water, stir it together in a glass and drink it, Im not sure if this is what Ted tried, I couldnt quite follow his instructions so hopefully I'll see a message from him on this, Im pretty sure I have a Candida allergy or wheat allergy...


For every clogged ear and nose problems, including runny or puffy nose, the answer is Bill Thompson's protocol: 4 drops of Lugol Iodine in filtered water and rinse your nose if needed twice a day until it is all cleared.

Hope this will help you as it helped me.

I must say, EarthClinic has grown so much over the past 5 years that I cannot find what I'm looking for. But that's a good thing that the site has grown. I am trying to find Ted's recipe for curing Candida. I have his direct email from past conversations but I rather not contact him when he has already listed the ingredients here. Can someone direct me or provide the link to the page where I can find his recipes for Candida. I'm not sure if someone has mentioned this before, but what about giving a tab or side bar link to all of Ted's recipes. Disregard this suggestion if it is already here on the site. I'm probably overlooking it. Thanks, Tasha

Hi Tasha... I had candida for well over 8 years, and managed to get rid of it within a year using Ted's remedies. Here is a link to where I put all of Ted's candida remedies that I used together in one area. The link leads to a comment stream where I lay out the remedies with explanations. Here is the link:

At a minimum, I would use Ted's alkalizing remedies plus all the core attack remedies against candida from this protocol.

I still use all of these remedies today, haven't had a cold or flu or any illness, no aches and pains, good heart, for well over 4 years now and I'm over 60 y o. But when I had candida, it was a very different story.

I want to make this site my home page! Ted from Bangkok could just save my life if I continue to get better. I am using his baking soda remedy for a fungus I got from taking antibiotics. Although I still am suffering, I can now at least eat. Doctors I've been to have failed me and in fact, got me in this situation in the first place with their prescriptions for antibiotics and acid blockers. My fingers are still crossed as I am only on day three of his two-week treatment but at least I can say that I no longer feel like I'm on death's doorstep for most of the day. I look forward to healing completely with Ted's remedy. Thank you so much.

EC: Can you please tell us which of his baking soda remedies you are taking? He has posted quite a few of them! Thanks...

Hey guys! Great site, finally found the real people without those Cinderella stories ending up in "buy my product"! Anyway, I am candida sufferer for 3 years now, and still no significant improving. I tried with ThreeLac, 5 bags per day for two months, nothing. Once, at my 12th day of using it all red eczema from my penis disappeared but soon returned to be as persistent as not know what to do anymore, tried a strict diet couple times and it almost killed me...
Best, Dave

ThreeLac cured my Panic and Anxiety Disorder and other symptoms caused by candida albicans (yeast) including PMS, hypothyroid, depression. I felt worse for 7 days then for the first time in 18 months went shopping effortlessly! I dropped back but within 6 weeks began shopping again and now 9 months later can drive and shop everywhere - effortlessly! ThreeLac made the most difference. What kept me together until I found ThreeLac was high grade vitamins from and Iodoral - an iodine suuplement known to help with hypothyroid. Email me anytime with questions or comments.

Throat Clearing

Posted by Mary (Yutan, Ne) on 02/24/2015

Hello, I am wanting to ask Bill Thompson a question. I just received his book in the mail a few days ago. I have started doing the borax today. My question that I wanted to ask him was can candida cause me to have a constant throat clearing? Also will the borax help to get rid of the throat clearing. I thought it would be best to ask him since he seems to know so much about candida. Thank you for passing this message along to him.

Replied by Bill

Hi Mary...In answer to you question -- yes, candida can directly infect the lungs(and so can aspergillus or mold) if your immune system is compromised.

Borax is perhaps the ultimate fungal killer, but your lung problems seems to be due to persistent, excess mucus in your bronchial and throat region. There several things you can take to help reduce the excess phlegm in these regions. Here are some options for you:

* Take 1/2 tspn sea salt in a glass of water in the morning every day(Ted's remedy).

* Take 1/2 teaspoon xylitol in water 2 or 3 times a day(Ted's remedy). Xylitol can sometimes feel acidic when you take it so if this happens just take 1/4 tspn sodium bicarbonate with some water to reduce the acidity.

* What helps to clear my own lung and nose mucus is lugol's iodine which is in my protocol. Excess iodine in the blood tends to accumulate in the alveoli or small air sacs of the lungs -- so iodine will both help to reduce the mucus as well as kill any pathogen, including yeast, that is residing in the lung region causing you problems.

All the above remedies will help to reduce and clear sputum from the lungs and throat. And they all kill fungus as well.

If you find that you have a serious lung infection causing these excess sputum problems then I would perhaps use Bill Munro's Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method(using an atomizer or nebulizer) -- shown here. For this I would be careful to use the 0.5 % FG Hydrogen Peroxide strength that Ted recommends.

I had a persistent tickly cough with excess phlegm that was causing me some grief some while ago because I couldn't sleep well. It kept going away and coming back. I tried everything but it lasted weeks. In the end, I came to the conclusion that the virus or whatever was hiding so I made sure to disinfected the following regions where pathogens can easily hide away from the immune system and from anti-pathogn nutrients:

* Ears

* Nose and sinuses

* The cavity directly behind the rear nose opening which is above the throat.

Everyday I disinfected my nostrils with four drops of lugols iodine mixed with a capful of water. I used a dropper and put this mix into each nostril and made sure it ran all the way back into the cavity behind the nose to kill all residual pathogens there. You could also use a neti pot for this as well. I sometimes used drops of 1% hydrogen peroxide(HP) with a dropper as well.

I either used 1% HP or Lugol's Iodine(with a capful of water) to disinfect my ears.

The persistent infection causing the tickly cough and excess phlegm in my throat disappeared completely within 2 days.

I was suffering from Candida so badly that I had persistent pain and blocked feeling in my ear. It was made worse by antibiotics.

I visited a TCM Practitioner who took my pulse and looked at my tongue.

She said the white coating was indicative of "Dampness in the Body", which is basically candida in TCM terms. In TCM many illnesses are attributed to "dampness". The Chinese understand it and they know how to treat it.

She prescribed a herbal formula and told me to avoid certain foods (dairy, processed foods). Also to add some foods to my diet (particularly adzuki beans and some live sauerkraut).

Surprisingly, I was advised to STAY AWAY from RAW foods and vegetables. Everything must be cooked because my digestive system is struggling and raw foods are tough on the digestive system. I also need to avoid heavy meats like beef and pork.

I was advised that grains are OKAY (except for wheat - although some sourdough is OK). I must soak grains overnight before cooking them otherwise my body will not absorb them properly.

After taking the herbs for 2 weeks, I felt 100% better. My ear pain was gone and I had lots of energy. Due to circumstances out of my control, I did not improve my diet. In fact, my diet was worse than before, yet the herbs worked.

When I ran out of herbs, my symptoms came back, but now I am in a position to alter my diet so I look forward to the results.

I hope this information helps someone as I know that many people struggle to control candida. With TCM, you don't need to follow an impossible diet, just take the herbs, add certain foods and limit others.

WARNING: Chinese medicine is quite complex and this advice was given for my specific condition. Everyone is different so you will need to consult a practioner who can assess whether you have "dampness" and/or other conditions.

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.

I use the tumeric for my candida too, but to cure the candida you have to heal the gut. You can do that with aloe gel and fermented foods, as well as eliminating any toxins/allergens, both food and chemical, that are exascerbating the problem.

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

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.

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.

Turpentine definitly works. It works in multiple ways. One is that it breaks up bio-films but there are other things that do that too. I found this article that names a number of things that work that can be added to Bill's protocol. I am wondering if anyone else has tried any of them?

I've tried some of them in the past but I didn't know about bio-films then and I think the turpentine works through out the body. I am going to try the turpentine in nose spray because if you have any candida in the mucus of the sinuses then a little drip down the throat will restart up the candida in the intestines.

Posted by Nickyg (Panama City, Panama) on 08/11/2014

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, Nicholas

Hi Nickyg...In answer to your question, the proper protocol for candida is to take one teaspoon of turpentine, with between 1-4 tablespoons of castor oil once or twice every week. Castor oil(CO) is used for the following reasons:

* It inhibits candida and kills bacteria primarily in the gut.

* It quickly helps to rid the intestines of intestinal poisons and heavy metals(from candida/bacterial biofilm) by laxative action.

* Most importantly castor oil helps to more effectively spread the turps throughout the intestines to kill the bad pathogens. The intestines in an adult is 28 ft long and has the surface area of a tennis court.

i would not use olive oil with turps. But you can use coconut oil on its own or with the castor oil if you want -- VCO is also a particularly strong anti-pathogen.

About three weeks ago I had a fairly serious bout of food poisoning. After about 4 days with symptoms of shooting pains, gas, non-stop gurgling throughout my intestines, many visit to the toilet with hot, watery stools, disturbed sleep, low energy etc, I took 1 teaspoon of turps with 1 tblspn of castor oil. Next day all these symptoms had shifted to my lower intestines and I still had diarrhea. I wasn't cured but the upper part of my intestines did not have these symptoms.

So after a day's rest I took a higher dose of CO -- one teaspoon of turps and 3 tablespoons of CO with one tblspn of VCO. Next day my intestinal problem was completely gone -- I was back to normal. This higher CO dose had reached the lower intestines and managed to eliminated the infection quickly.

This result is proof that you need to take the right amount of CO with the turps for the turps to be an effective anti-pathogen throughout ALL the intestines.

I know that Dr Daniels maintains that problems like skin blackening can an occur when you take excessive amounts of turps. It's true that any excessive candida/bacterial poisons in the gut will lead to excessive poisons in the blood. And if you have a liver that is already stressed or diseased from removing poisons -- the liver will be unable to clear this excess poison load so the skin, which is also a major excretory organ, tries to excrete these poisons as well -- hence the skin blackening symptoms.

So I disagree with Dr Daniels here. The blackening of the skin is not necessarily always due to intestinal blockages, but can also obviously arise if the liver cannot cope with the excessive release of candida poisons from gut to blood with the turpentine protocol. This is why I always advocate liver support nutrients like ALA, Magnesium, Selenium, Milk Thistle etc whenever you are killing large amounts of candida. Chanca piedra is another good one.

For the last 8 months or so I''ve been working with a parents autism group who are following Kerri Rivera's Protocol to cure their kids ASD problems -- using Chlorine Dioxide(Jim Hubble's MMS protocol) together with Hulda Clark Parasite Protocol and diet. Children with ASD problems are always infected with parasites and candida which apears to be the main cause of autism.

I was contacted by the leader of this ASD group because he could get no further improvement on the ATEC scores for his ASD child using Kerri's protocol. ATEC measures various parameters of the chid -- cognitive ability, shyness, repetitive behaviours, sociability etc. So I've been helping to advise them. So far two kids have have regressed to normal behaviour while using the turps protocol within Kerri's protocol. Usually it takes about 2 years to achieve normal behaviour in kids with ASD using Kerri's protocols. So, incorporating the turps protocol as well seems to speed up recovery from autism.

To show you the virulence of candida and what other diseases it can lead to -- have a look at this diagram:

Candida Virulence and Progression

To show you the action of my own anti-candida protocol -- see this link:

Bill's Anti-Candida Protocol Activity

I've also written a detailed book about candida that is sold on EarthClinic but you can find most of the information about the complete protocol from my posts on this site as well.

Above all, you must have a clear strategy, with sufficient cogent reasons, to get rid of your candida. From my book, here is the strategy that I use:

Anti-Candida and Anti-Pathogen Protocols

Anti-Biofilm Protocols

Alkalizing Protocols

Essential Detox Protocols

Liver Support Protocols

Vitamin and Mineral Support (Immune System Support)

The Anti-Candida Diet

Other nutrients that will also help against candida/bacteria are olive leaf, oregano, Boswellia(Frankincense), Myrrh and undecylenic(or undecanoic) acid. You can research these.

Mr. Bill: Wow very extensive reply okay, I get it; your preferred protocol is 1 tsps. turpentine with 1 to 3 tbsp. of castor oil and 1 tsp. of the VCO.

This is once or twice a week as starters, and then you cut back to once a week maintenance dose for how long?.

I will use the 1tsp of the organic diamond turpentine along with 1 or 2 tbsp. of CO and 1 tsps. of VCO as starters and see how it goes okay, then I will take a 10 day break and resume on a once week protocol.

I am shooting for the right balance and turpentine protocol along with the antifungals, probiotics and supplements. I had a while back, a bad die-off reaction episode. I was doing the grape fruit seed extract 2 times a day 125 mg, and the now candida clear 2 times a day, now probiotics 10-25 billion CFU 2 times day.

After a week I got a skin rash break out with an itch, it was mostly underarm armpit rash and genital rash, started the molybdenum, stop all the antifungals except the probiotics and that has helped, it clamed things down. The deal here Mr. Bill is not going crazy with too many supplements and getting dependent on them. This can stress you out, which can make you wonder when or if ever will I control this candida overgrowth, because it seems like you make 1 foot of progress only to drop back and lose 2 feet.

This is something new I've had for the past 2 years since I was on a antibiotic treatment for about 2 to 3 weeks after a motorcycle accident, this along with the stress I had, was the trigger. Things got worse with the fungal treatment and steroid creams, which I then hit my zenith, and then it had spiraled out of control and I was really stressed out. But now today, I know what is the cause and protocol procedures, at least I am not lost in space like 2 years ago when this hit me all of a sudden and had me scrambling for answers, as to why the food sensitivities, skin rashes, bloated feeling and hives breakout in my forearms and neck.

I strongly feel that sharing good information from experience, with trial and error and being truth full is key here at this forum. Some have more experience like yourself, others have a different approach, etc. etc., but the bottom line here is controlling the Candida overgrowth which has spiraled out of control and is making our health and daily lives' miserable. Thanks for all your information, support, shared information, knowledge and the time to answer not only my questions and concerns, but the many others who write to you as well.

Cheers, GOD BLESS and keep up the good work, since its all about sharing information from our experiences. Nicholas

Mr. Bill: What time of the day is the best moment to take the once a week turpentine protocol, (1tsp organic diamond turp/2tpsns. of CO/1tspns. CVO). Before dinner, after dinner, a few hours after dinner, or maybe an hour before bed? How do you react or feel after you take your turp protocol - okay?

cheers, Nicholas

Mr. Bill, I just bought your book okay, want to clarify 3 things about the turps/ castor oil/ evco protocol. Best time to take it, frequency to take it and proper ratio of Turps/ castor oil / EVC oil. This is what I am doing at the moment unless you specify otherwise. Every 10 days ( 3 times a month ), 1 tspn of diamond turps, 2 tbspn Castor Oil, 1 tbspn EVC oil, followed by 2 glasses of spring water. Taking a good multivitamin, kelp, MSM, kelp morning at evening take 250mcg molybdenum chelated and jarrows milk thistle, before bed 1 1000m L-Glutamine / 1- Garden of life ultimate probiotic.

Awaiting reply, cheers, Nicholas

Hi Nickyg...I would take the multivitamin and kelp with breakfast. The MSM and molybdenum should be taken together on their own outside meals because molybdenum gets absorbed into the blood better with MSM and water.

Take the Turps + CO + VCO about 20 minutes before eating some food. I normally take 1 teaspoon of turps with 3 tablespoons of CO and one tblspn of VCO -- but I'm nearly 200 lbs in weight. So if you weigh less then you should perhaps adjust down the CO and VCO accordingly.

It's best to initially take turps this way because turps is not very soluble or miscible in water and you initially need it to act in the intestines. And the CO and EVCO with the food helps to carry and spread the turps remedy deeper into the intestines where it can do the most good killing pathogens there.

Later on, when you are relatively clear of pathogens in the intestines, you might consider taking turps with some water only -- this time taking it outside mealtimes. This way, on an empty stomach, the turps gets rapidly absorbed directly from the stomach into the blood -- and this is where the turps will help to get rid of any further pathogens that are in the blood, organs and tissues.This turps method is particularly useful as a remedy if you have any serious bloodborne infectious diseases.

For a long time now, on a daily basis, I also take about three or four drops of turps in my mouth and just hold it there, spreading it around. Turps will kill all the bad stuff in the mouth and is also absorbed quickly into the gums and roots of the teeth to act as a disinfectant in these regions. You should hold the turps in your mouth for at least 2 minutes -- longer if possible -- and its ok to swallow it. I cured a wobbly and painful capped tooth root infection this way and the tooth still remains healed and firm to this day.

I normally advise taking the turps + CO remedy once or twice a week for serious candida problems-- but if 10 days suits you better that should be OK.

The milk thistle and glutamine can been taken at any time -- but usually best to take these supplements with meals.

If you find that you aren't making much progress or headway with your protocol after a few months, I would also seriously consider adding lugol's iodine(higher dose), borax and alkalizing to your protocol as well as per my book. This threesome has also worked very well for me against candida problems in the past.

Mr. Bill thanks once again sir for your prompt, professional and courteous reply. This my routine, first thing out of bed, I rinse my mouth with spring water and spit it out, then do 10 minutes oil pull with EVCO, and spit it out, rinse my mouth out with salt water 4 ounces, then I take half a lemon with 6 ounces warm water, then I take my 1- 1000mg pill l glutamine with 1 probiotic pill, after 10 -15 minutes I have my breakfast, and after my breakfast, in the morning I take, 1 men's one multivitamin, 1 kelp 150 mcg, 1 omega krill oil 500mg.

For lunch I take just 1 teaspoon of organic ACV with lunch, in the evening meal I take another teaspoon of organic ACV and after dinner I take 1 milk thistle. 2 to 3 hours later before bed I take L glutamine, probiotic, and now I will add the molybdenum and MSM okay upon your advice, will this interfere with my L glutamine sport (now foods) / probiotic (primal defense ultra).

During the day I make sure to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water okay. The only fruit I eat is at breakfast where I make a daily shake of 2 small cups of orange juice, 1 banana, cup of papaya, 1/4 granola, 1/4 walnuts for the fiber. I am 63 years old 6 feet tall and now weight 154lbs I lost 15 lbs after my motorcycle accident back 2012, and have not been able to gain it back, due to this new restricted diet okay. The idea is be stress free as much as possible and not worry about taking too many pills and supplements . On the turps protocol ( turps/ CO/ EVCO ), I will stick with the 10 day revolving time frame and later on try the turps with water to clean the blood. I greatly appreciate what you do for myself, others and the earth clinic community. Just for curiosity how old are you, are you Filipino?, I am a great fan and follower of my favorite boxer Manny Paquiao. Awaiting reply, take care and cheers, Nicholas
