systemic Candida treatment

Case Study: Systemic Candida Treatment Part 2

Four Weeks ago I decided to do something about the last stubborn Candida symptoms that had sneaked back into my life after my holiday in July where I ate ice cream, pizza and I even had the odd G&T, oh yes ? 

You can see the details of the systemic candida treatment protocol I was following on this page here, but the gist of it is that I rotated SF722 with oil of oregano and olive leaf capsules. I also took strong probiotics: Syntol and Bacillus Coagulus one day, the next day CP1 Custom Probiotics.

What is new:

While I was reading up on Syntol I came across this informative site that explains in great detail how it works, and how important it is to take digestive enzymes that are able to break the biofilm that yeast colonies can hide behind.

Being ever the experimentalist I then ordered two kinds of digestive enzymes to try. A broad spectrum digestive enzymes supplement (“Sources Naturals Enzymes” for breaking down fiber and protein from food, the other one “Interfase Pus” specifically designed to attack the yeast biofilm.

How I got on with the strong antifungals & probiotics protocol:

The first week I noticed virtually nothing, and actually thought it didn’t work. The second week I then experienced real die off symptoms. It was only a brief encounter but quite strong (nausea, headache, bloating, gas, bit of thrush, sinus pressure… the whole nine yards). The meds and probiotics seemed to flush it out of my system fairly quickly though as for the past week I have been symptom free again, and it doesn’t feel as if there is another wave of die off to come.

It is a bit of a shame that I didn’t get a chance to properly test the digestive enzymes. I only once took the broad spectrum ones (before I had a big dinner) and I had no indigestion afterwards (which I often get when eating late). So it looks to me like they could be beneficial in the treatment of systemic Candida infections, I just haven’t tried it long enough. But since I have not been having tummy problems whatsoever recently and I ate a really clean, anti-inflammatory, easy to digest diet, I saw no point in taking the enzymes.

I have put the digestive enzymes aside for the Christmas period when I will be indulging in a LOT of food, and I can properly put them to the test. I had only taken the Biofilm killing enzymes for three days, when I already hadn’t experienced any symptoms anymore, so I can’t really say anything about their effectiveness unfortunately. I would be interested to hear your experience, should you have tried Biofase, NAC or Lactoferrin which are similar enzyme combos.

What Candida supplements I am thinking of taking moving forward:

I am going back to taking Garden of Life Primal Ultra Probiotics rather than the CP1, but I’ll try and take them 2-3 times a day rather than the once a day like I used to. I will also start taking kefir and fermented vegetables again to bump up my natural probiotics consumption. I will gradually reduce the amount of SF722 and oil of oregano… one by one every day, so a week from now I’ll stop taking them altogether. I will continue to use coconut oil, garlic and anti-candida herbs in my cooking though.

Let’s get clued up on what it REALLY takes to overcome Candida issues:

If you are confused about what Candida treatment route to go down, or perhaps you’re even unsure if what you have is Candida related, I recommend working with a gut specialist to get the relevant tests done to give you clarity.

Since I am not a doctor myself, there are quite a few questions left unanswered for me regarding the best forms of systemic Candida treatment. Hence I’ve decided to invest in my health, and really get to the bottom of what’s going on in the gut — yeast, SIBO (bacterial overgrowth), dysbiosis (microbial imbalance)? I need more answers!

So I splashed out and bought the digestive sessions you see below. 25 in depth interviews with digestive experts.

Have you followed along some of their free sessions last week, what did you think? Knowledge is power!

Super useful information on Candida, parasites, dysbiosis, gluten… time to take our health into our own hands I say :)
