Make your own boric acid suppositories by filling size 00 gelatin capsules. insert one capsule in the vagina at bedtime for 2 weeks. To prevent a recurrent infection, boric acid can be used twice a week for 6mo. to 1 year. I am 37 yrs old and put up with chronic yeast infections for the past 10 yrs. I tried this treament after every medication had failed. I have been yeast fee for almost a year! This really works, I told my gynocologist about this treatment and he is now letting this patients in on the cure! You can go to a website to read more about it.

According to a episode on How it's Made, H ----brand of ACV is made from corn therefore, they stated, it is corn ethanol and not a drop of apple.

Go to your local heath food store to find a great brand of Kimche or Sauerkraut. Remember, look for brands that are live and unheated and unpasturized. A farmer's market or farm near you may have in and advertise on the internet. Don't buy commercially available brands found at supermarkerts. They're heated and they have lost their nutrients.

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..

Hi, I'm a 54 years old male whom was diagnosed with candida over growth, I was given some drops to help with stabilising the over growth it work for a mouth or so now its back. Symptom Heart palpitation, gas, belching, passing gas but have good bowel movements as in no diarrhoea. The solution I was given has no name but I was given it at a Holistic Health Expo when I was diagnosed. At the moment I'm using ACV 1 tablespoon in a cup of water 3x a day stop sugar, white bread, still taking milk, natural yogurt, brown bread sometimes, eggs, olive oil, to cook with.

Can you please help ...

Posted by Violetta (Italy-mo) on 09/09/2020

Can someone answer me, how do you take hydrogen peroxide already diluted to 3%.?In Italy you cannot buy the 35% solution!What would be the protocol for candida using 3% hydrogen peroxide .. How much distilled water should be diluted?I did the borax protocol for a month, and it really helped, but now I see, a little perianal egzema is back. Certainly not with the same strength!I think, hydrogen peroxide could make a difference!Thanks in advance! This site is saving me!!!

Thanks for existing!!

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.

Dietary Changes, Antifungal Supplements
Posted by Berta (Sc) on 09/23/2016

I have systemic candida which I have been treating by eliminating sugar though I had continued to eat grains and beans. I have recently stopped the grains and beans and started taking anti fungals: oil of oregano, olive leaf oil and Undecylenic Acid. I am continuing with the no grain no sugar diet but stopped all anti fungals temporarily due to feeling severe die off symptoms. Now I am just experiencing extreme fatigue though depression feelings have subsided. I am wondering if I can start the anti fungals again or one at a time or should I wait until I am no longer so fatigued?

Thank you for your input,

I went straight to ACV for Candida. I've never felt better! My sugar and caffeine cravings have been gone for over a year! I start each day with 1 tbsp ACV in a glass of warm/hot water and at night too for better sleep! I also add 2 tbsp of ACV to my regular bottled water with a couple packets of stevia. Tastes like lemon aid and gives me an afternoon boost.

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.

Posted by Andrew (India) on 06/11/2015

I was suffering from a lot of "candida" problems and tried all possible remedies from vinigar to h2o2 and even bleach, to no longterm relief. After coming to India I was told by someone NEEM was a secret cure for most candida issues. I am currently on neem pills (google It) very inexpensive. I started with 1 pill after a week 2 pills and now 3 pills a day and sure enuff the candida is dying away. I want to share this with all of you suffering from candida and wish you a healthy happy life.

Remember you will need to take activated charcoal pills (available at drug store) in the begining to balance the dieoff symptoms. After your blood becomes saturated with the neem your blood will become antifungal. :)

Baking Soda

After reading about the effectiveness of bicarbonate of soda here last Nov (2014); I decided to follow the advice to take 1/8 teaspoon in a glass of water morning and evening for candida.

Well, that worked well for me. There were 3 months of die-off but thereafter the candida load has clearly reduced. My tongue has more pink in it. Depression is gone. Insomnia is gone. Jock itch, armpit rashes, itchy eyes, brain fog, athlete's foot are all gone. Only toe-nails are still deformed but they are slowly clearing.

I will take the soda till my tongue is pink.

For the past two weeks, I have also been doing herbal enemas too - 3 cloves of crushed garlic, a leaf of aloe vera in a cup of water then adding up more water to make a 2 litre enema solution. That has helped me I realize. My colon was blocked, and it still is I think. I will carry on with the enemas till the candida has cleared.

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?

Hi ORH. I was interested in your recent post (reply to Bill)when you described your remedy for jock itch, I've seen many ladies use the toilet paper remedy for sweat and itching down below. I was a district nurse years ago and this remedy helped ladies when they were immobile/bed ridden etc. after bathing, keeping them fresh, and men surely would benefit from this. You say you do. Please keep on with your imformative down to earth posts; they are so enjoyable to read, Joy

Coconut Oil
Posted by Pam (Uk) on 04/06/2015

Bill, I would be very careful about your statement "VCO contains caproic acid and D, L-2-hydroxyisocaproic acid is just an isomer of the same." I remember from my high school chemistry that isomers can behave very differently, and a quick search on wikepedia reveals "Isomers do not necessarily share similar properties, unless they also have the same functional groups". I cook with VCO, and consume it, but right now my systemic infestation with candida is off the scale and nothing is effective anymore, (my circulation has got dramatically worse too, sign of arterial and cardiovascular plaque) so you can bet they have boifilm protection.

Coconut Oil
Posted by Anon (Us) on 04/06/2015

There is a coconut oil cleanse that completely starves the candida in the book the coconut oil cures, if you are interested. I have considered it but not sure I can handle it until working up to ingesting that quantity of oil before attempting it.

Hi, I have a question about sodium bicarbonate use for candida. It's well known that sodium bicarbonate is very alkaline and helps to balance PH balance for acidic person, however, when you ingest it, it turns your digestive system alkaline, which will make favorable environment for the candida.(It's different from making your system alkaline.)

I'll appreciate your explanation on this. Thank you.

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.

Antifungal Foods for Candida
Posted by Mike (Savannah) on 03/25/2016

This is all so very thorough, scientific and thoughtful. I can commiserate with much of what you have went through both in diet approach and the basic mental aspect of the candida overgrowth condition. I would, however, wish that more people would more comprehensively explain the various tenets of candida protocol, in particular, the role of fasting in candida treatment. I don't know if you covered this in your last post, but judging by your in depth coverage of candida, you will probably know what I'm talking about. Apparently, the yeast can utilize ketones about as well human beings can. If this is the case, that would make sense that a little carbohydrate with your meals would be a good idea. However, when this is true, wouldn't the same go for sweet potato? Who could argue that sweet potatoes, for instance, aren't as nutritious or as beneficial as say, white rice? Between the beta caroteen, the minerals in general, the vitamin A, the prebiotic fiber, etc, potatoes and sweet potatoes appear to be a "go to" carb. What say you?

I am back here to earth clinic to ask for help. About a month ago, I read the information about candida (so much information and somewhat overwhelming). Anyway I have adopted the diet - have cut out all grain and sugar, little carbs and started a few of the supplements recommended. I do feel better and will be continuing with this, but am having a hard time with my ears being blocked and affecting my hearing and balance. Why does it seem like I had less blocked ears on my former poor diet than on improved diet? I think I have a long standing bacterial/viral/fungal/biofilm in my ears? Many years ago I would use the foam earplugs at night and unfortunately, not knowing any better then, I kept reusing the same ones and may have introduced fungus from them being dirty. Can I get to the problem in the inner ear somehow? I am afraid to put anything in my ears until I get some good information on what to do. The inside of my ear canal feels very sticky most of the time.

I have also cut out fruit from my diet. Can you have any at all like berries or apples?

I would also like to pass along something I found on internet search for constipation that has so far made a big difference for the better for me. I use 1 tablespoon slippery elm powder and 1 tablespoon psyllium powder mixed with a cup of water and drink immediately. Then I drink 2 more cups of water after that and try to drink extra water during the day. There is a youtube video for this if I can find it again I can give the link. Hope this can help someone as it is helping me. Good health to all.

HI U AMY, , , , , , , , , I too have candida and in my ears. Probably no one has responded because candida is a long lifetime chore and no one has an instant solution. For the long term ..... follow Ted and Bill's protocol. For the short term I spray my ears with Dr Tichenor's Antiseptic.

It has been used in the South since the Civil War. It is essentially grain alcohol and peppermint, but don't sell it short. All these posts on Jocky itch etc., have to take a back seat to this brew. It cures lots of stuff. Yep, it burns.

I fuss at folks for making demands, but your plea broke my heart. You were not being ignored by the EC folks, but Candida is TOUGH CITY , and there is no easy solution.

Dr Tichenor's is hard to find anymore. It can be found on the internet.

Wish you well ......======ORH========

thank you ORH. I appreciate your kind reply!

I looked up your recommendation on amazon. Is it the mouthwash antiseptic you are refering to? Do you dilute it to spray in your ears? Wish you well in your battle with candida. I have to wonder if mine is fungal form now. I fear losing my hearing and I am not 60 yet. I will try anything to save it and am determined to win!

Hi Amy...It is a fact of life that whenever you take any good anti-candida protocol -- initially you will always feel awful(to some degree) before you feel better. These are called Herx reactions and will vary from person to person. This Herx reaction is unavoidable because whenever you kill huge numbers of candida then various poisons are always released directly into the blood. This causes stress on the liver to get rid of them -- hence you fell awful.

Similarly, heavy metal build-up is also involved in candida issues. So when you detox, then you will similarly get heavy metals dumped into the blood -- with consequent further stress on your liver to get rid of it and the result is the same -- you feel awful. There can be many other symptoms arising from both the Herx and detox effects -- too numerous to mention -- but these should all subside and disappear as you successfully get rid of the candida and heavy metals from your body in time.

Clogged Ears

Hi Robert Henry...Interesting what you say about Tichenor's Antiseptic -- for sure peppermint is a strong anti-fungal and should work well against the candida.

The remedies I have used for ear problems involve either using drops of Lugol's iodine and water or just using plain store-bought 1% hydrogen peroxide on its own. I simply use a dropper and fill up the ear carefully. Then I would hold it there for a minute or two in my ear. These remedies are pain-free but the HP will tickle like crazy because of the bubbling(proof positive that it is killing the bad stuff in your ears). With both these remedies, I would then empty out my ears and that's it. I do not wash my ears out -- I leave it there to continue its good work.

When I had serious candida issues some while ago, I also had awful wax build-up problems in my ears. Have to admit that this problem must have also had something to do with my systemic candida problems too. The ear wax itself also smelled awful and loads of it. I used the above simple remedies to clear them out for good(including the wax). Now I never have anymore smelly wax build-up in my ears and my ears are clear of fungus.

Candida Detection
Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn.) on 01/13/2015

HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN, , , , , I, like many on this site have systemic candida and look to Bill and Ted for counsel.

I think I've found a very simple way to determine the extent the candida. All know that this fungus shows up on nails, feet and crotch. It also shows up in your ears and can affect your hearing.

For the past weeks or so, I've coated my ear canals with Ozonated Olive Oil and it is hard to imagine the amount of skin peeling off. I am assuming this is fungus.

Bill, can you contribute to this. I know a gut check is not a reliable test because everyone has gut candida and most allopathic doctors don't even do this test because it is difficult to quantify.
