Well, if brewer's yeast is good for killing Candida, isn't it okay then to drink beer?  (I have one every evening to increase my night-time milk supply for my very thirsty baby who seems to want to "stock up" in the evening.)

Not if you think you might have a candida problem.
Quoted from Ribbit
Thank you all for the helpful advice about detoxing the liver with herbal teas.  I'll try all those.  Also, I have a question about sugars.  I'm entirely yeast, dairy, and sugar free, but I do use agave nectar.  And I eat dried fruit (particularly fond of unsulfured apricots) and some fresh fruit.  Should I cut those out just in case I have Candida?  It encourages me that it might be as easy (ha) as getting rid of Candida.

If you think you might have candida, then yes give up the agave nectar and all fresh and dried fruit.
Quoted from Ribbit
BTW also, I'm taking L-tyrosine for underactive thyroid.  Could L-tyrosine be taken from iodine, which I'm possibly allergic to?

Tyrosine and iodine are two different things, not related at all.

After cutting out grains and all dried fruit and all cheese, I find that I am able to eat a small amount of beneficial only fruits on a daily basis.  No agave for me.  And I haven't had a sign of candida for months.  It helps me to focus on beneficials and consider neutrals to be occasional treats.  No avoids, ever.

Alright, here we go.  It's going to take some encouragement on y'all's part, but I'm going to do my best to get rid of this Candida, if that's what's making my skin break out.  Today I've only had, as far as fruit goes, two apricots and a small glass of 100% cranberry juice, which I figured I'd down here at the start just in case I have a little UTI on the side, so to speak.  I'll finish up this jar of cran, then lay off all fruit, beer and agave for a few weeks.  I did have two pieces of Ezekiel bread, but maybe I should cut that out too.  I just have to worry about keeping up my milk supply, and when I start changing my diet sometimes my milk goes down.  Probably calorie-related.

So maybe it's really, for me anyway, multiple things causing the skin issues?  Nightshades, onions, and possibly Candida?  I'm clearing up from the last onion ingestion now.  As soon as it's all gone, I'll experiment with garlic and then shallots to see if it's all aliums or just onions.

Candida feeds off of the sugars in the fruit.  Just try it for a week and see the difference it makes. The ezekiel bread is made with yeast as well, so watch out for that.

Good luck!!

I've heard that being overly sensitive to supplements, foods, medicines, etc. is due to a liver not clearing properly - ie. need liver cleansing.  For me, I used to have weird reactions to everything too, but they're getting a lot milder as I've strengthened my adrenals - seems to correlate w/ low adrenaline/thyroid.  But then, I've done cleansing stuff too like bentonite clay.  And lowering stresses of all kinds!  Like immune ones that put your system in "high gear".
My son is an A; he has terrible acne - for him potato chips & anything with "damaged fats" are the worst, fried or commercial foods. And stress.  It always clears up when he's home for a few days from college.   ANd did I say stress?  :^)
Best wishes!

How did you strengthen your adrenals?

And how did you know that you'd done so... and not made some other change that didn't involve adrenal glands?

I use 1 tsp. sea salt in my lemon water every morning and that helps, but I feel like I could do more....
