I've tried the oregano oil and it seems to help, as long as I don't take it non-stop for more than a couple of weeks.  Then it starts to irritate my stomach.

I can't find Thyme or coriander tincture, and no I haven't tried olive oil between meals.  

I do take the ARA6 twice a day, as well as probiotic and zinc, magnesium, rice tocotrienols and a lot of chlorophyl, and I cook with ghee.

I don't eat any sugar, honey, maple syrup or vinegar, grain intake is low.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.

of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Oh, Mike!  You're right....We can't stop talking!  It's Growing!!

Lola,
I do eat fruit..... a couple of spoonfuls of blueberries in my morning blender drink.  Occasional fresh organic cherries or 1/2 papaya, sometimes sweet potatoes with salmon for dinner, Proberry and ARA 6 everyday.  I'm not a big sweet eater, but not totally fruit-free either.

[color=red][/color][b][/b]This is weird -- I came here looking for a reason for the things I'm experiencing and found all this, which sounds just like what I'm going through.  I'm a B and just started the diet over last weekend.  I feel tired, achy (especially hips and lower back), and was thinking maybe I have a yeast infection.  Is this what's happening to me -- candida detox???  Or is there something else going on?

How are the wars going? Any progress?

A battle report would be mostly appreciated

I'm still not sure what way to go with this problem. I'm trying to follow an anti-candida diet, but seems like al I eat now is fried meat, sometimes fish, and vegetables.. I'm starting to miss my brown rice Won't have any of that till this thing is gone though as it is causing me way to many problems and annoying symptoms.

I am getting some herbs soon that are suppose to help against candida, and I recently ordered a pack of products from NAP which will hopefully give the fight a little kick as well..

Hmm.. seems like the herbs got lost in the mail or something :/


Anyways, I want to ask about something that has been troubling me..

For quite a few weeks now I've had some sort of urinary discharge - which could maybe be some sort of urinary tract infection? - can this be another candida die off symptom, or does it mean I'm doing something completely wrong and the candida is actually getting stronger in my system?

Btw. I'm male and I just read in my roommate's medical dictionary that urinary tract infection is very rare for males.. Also saw that the candidaconnection.com site lists urinary tract infection as a typical candida symptom, so I'm guessing it's due to the candida...

So.. Am I doing the right things? Is it getting better or worse with this symptom appearing?


Thanks for all replies

Over this past month I have been taking caprylates and eating lots of raw garlic as well as taking probiotics, to combat Candida. A month ago my spit test was full of tendrils and descending globs and now the test is much improved; hardly any descending whatnots! My tongue, which has been coated for years, is almost completely clear except way back where I can't use mechanical action -- my toothbrush -- to loosen the yeast. Garlic helps alot here since the caprylates are a pill and don't act in the mouth unless getting there systemically. The raw garlic burns the yeast off while bringing tears to my eyes but hey, it's worth it! All of this improvement has been made while eating rice, fruit, honey and agave syrup daily. I am on an elimination diet for leaky gut syndrome and have to eat something after all!!

From what I read, this is abnormal, to be  killing Candida but still eating these things. Awhile back I read something about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet recommendations for fighting Candida, and I guess that is what I am doing so I wanted to share this as perhaps a less rigorous dietary approach, while still nixing the yeastie beasties.

Hmm

Interesting story JK. Do keep us updated on how your journey continues

I went to the hfs today and got some stinging nettle capsules which I'll also be taking.. Didn't find caprylates though, but i didn't completely remember the name when I was there so I'll have to go back tomorrow and do a recheck for it..

Lola: Thanks for the information and link. I'll see if I can find it at some local store at first and if not I guess I'll have to order it online..

Good luck Viking.  Try a leaf of red cabbage after every meal (cabbage is a good Scandinavian heritage food).  Also the not-quite-sugar xylitol, which I am finding kills them off well--they eat it, think it is sugar, and die of lack of nourishment, or something like that.  Both of these changes (added to the protocol: caprilyic acid, UDA plus--which, you should note, is stinging nettle ROOT, not leaf, clove, garlic).  I could not find stinging nettle ROOT in my hfc, had to order from NAP. The two tweaks above added a lot to the efficacy of the process.  Last night, raspberries with xylitol--very pretty, sparkling with sugar: good for me, bad for them!  Barely a whisper in the saliva this morning.

Thanks Elizabeth

Seems like I've bought the wrong thing again then..
The stinging nettle I got contains:
Urtica dioica (Nettle) leaf powder



xylitol is another thing I get at my hfs or where do you suggest getting that?

and raspberries are ok?


Today I woke up with a really sore throat and I've felt slack all day. And it seems like the UT discharge is even more active than normal.. hmm, think it's time I send an e-mail to that naturopath and hear if it's possible to get an appointment soon..

I've cut out all fruits, including berries, although I've had blueberries a couple of times after going on the candida diet..

Yes, I had cut out the berries and fruits all around--now that I am much improved, and have found the cabbage (really miraculous) and xylitol, I am slowing adding back.  I long for sweet potatoes and peaches....  I had tried the cabbage on a short vacation, and was amazed by how much it helped.  Just chew a leaf after each meal, one before bed.  (Now, back at home, I am adding John's sauerkraut somewhere in there as well.)  Very best--this stuff is discouraging.

I still need to get to the sauerkraut thing, but got a vacation coming up next week if I don't get to it earlier it'll happen then.. Did try soaking some walnuts yesterday though and right now they're on some paper towels in hope of getting dry again :p ..I can't toast them as that would halfway ruin them, so not sure what else to do.. :/

You didn't answer the xylitol, but I presume the hfs is the place to go for it..

Maybe I'm feeling so bad today because I've had a lot of cabbage this weekend and got a bit too hard on the albicans causing more die-off symptoms..


Anyways, the war goes on!

Sorry (both re cabbage and xylitol)!  Yes, hfc is the place.  (In excess, xylitol says it can cause loose bowel movements--sometimes a good thing re: candida, sometimes not).  Best wishes (and yes, I would check in with a naturopathic pro).

I found this interesting and not the first time I had come across a link between mercury fillings and Candida persistence. BTW, I am anemic and hypothyroid as well.

"CANDIDA

Selenium deficiency and anemia appear to be the biggest factors 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 increase 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 are deficient in zinc compared to normals and that only a mild zinc deficiency is necessary for this recurring problem.

Basically it seems that the deficiencies associated with candidiasis correlate very well with the deficiencies associated with hypothyroidism. The key nutrient deficiencies are probably selenium, zinc, iron, B12, and folic acid.

Probably the best indicator of the level of candida growth in the body is the coating on the tongue. The more white coating there is, the more candida there probably is throughout the body. We want to get to the point where our tongues are clear, pink, and not sore.

The following study shows that candida albicans has a higher resistance to elevated concentrations of copper than baker's yeast. This may mean that in hypothyroidism, when zinc is low and copper is high, candida growth will not be suppressed by copper, which is normally toxic to fungal infections.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2000 Mar 28;97(7):3520-5

The high copper tolerance of Candida albicans is mediated by a P-type ATPase.

Weissman Z, Berdicevsky I, Cavari BZ, Kornitzer D

Department of Molecular Microbiology, The Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa 31096, Israel.

The pathogenic yeast Candida albicans has higher resistance than the baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to elevated concentrations of copper. To understand the basis of this differential resistance, we performed a functional screen for C. albicans genes involved in copper detoxification. Here, we report the isolation of two such genes: a metallothionein, CaCUP1, and a copper-transporting P-type ATPase, CaCRP1. Both genes are induced by extracellular copper. Gene disruptions indicated that the copper extrusion pump is responsible for the unusual resistance of C. albicans to copper, whereas the metallothionein is responsible for the residual copper resistance of the Cacrp1Delta mutant. We show further that under acidic and anaerobic conditions, such as prevail in the natural niche of C. albicans, the digestive tract of animals, CaCRP1 function becomes essential for survival in the presence of even very low copper concentrations. These observations suggest that copper in the gastrointestinal tract may present a toxic challenge to which enteric organisms had to adapt.

The following studies show that selenium is a key nutrient in the control of candida albicans.
 J Nutr 1986 May;116(5):816-22  


The response of selenium-deficient mice to Candida albicans infection.

Boyne R, Arthur JR

The effects of selenium deficiency on the responses to Candida albicans infection were examined in mice. When selenium-deficient and selenium-supplemented mice were given i.v. injections of 0.1 ml suspensions of 1 X 10(5) or 5 X 10(4) C. albicans in 0.9% sterile saline, deaths in the selenium-deficient animals started after 2.5-3.5 d compared with 7-8.5 d in the selenium-supplemented animals. Further studies demonstrated that 3 d after an i.v. injection of 1 X 10(5) C. albicans, significantly more of the microorganisms were found in the kidneys (P less than 0.001), livers (P less than 0.025) and spleens (P less than 0.01) of the selenium-deficient mice compared with the same organs of selenium-supplemented animals. Selenium deficiency was also demonstrated to impair the ability of mouse neutrophils to kill C. albicans in in vitro tests. The possible relationships of this defect in function to decreased resistance to C. albicans infection is discussed.

And there is more.... too long for one posting. Hope everyone else finds it interesting too.

An in vivo and in vitro study of selenium deficiency and infection in rats.

Boyne R, Arthur JR, Wilson AB

Selenium deficiency in rats impairs the ability of neutrophils and peritoneal macrophages to kill Candida albicans organisms in vitro. In contrast, killing of Salmonella typhimurium and Staphylococcus aureus organisms is unaffected by the deficiency. Survival of rats after intraperitoneal injection of 8 X 10(7) S. aureus organisms was not affected by Se deficiency, but a 5-fold increase in the dose (4 X 10( S. aureus organisms) led to a significantly greater mortality in the Se deficient rats.

Indian J Biochem Biophys 1994 Oct;31(5):427-9  


Effect of experimental selenium deficiency and its supplementation on the candidacidal activity of neutrophils in albino rats.

Kukreja R, Khan A

Department of Biochemistry, Nagpur University.

The role of selenium in the diet of rats has been examined with respect to the neutrophil functions. Feeding of Se-deficient diet for 75 days resulted in reduction in candidacidal activity, superoxide production, oxygen consumption, glucose utilisation and glutathione peroxidase activity. Supplementing the diet with Se for 30 days resulted in partial restoration of all the activities.
Biotin deficiency may also be involved in candida albicans.
Semin Dermatol 1991 Dec;10(4):296-302  


Skin manifestations of biotin deficiency.

Mock DM

Department of Pediatrics, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City 52242.

This article reviews current knowledge concerning the dermatologic manifestations of biotin deficiency. Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that acts as an essential cofactor for four carboxylases, each of which catalyzes an essential step in intermediary metabolism. For example, acetyl-CoA carboxylase catalyzes the rate-limiting step in fatty acid elongation. In infants, children, and adults, deficiency of biotin causes alopecia and a characteristic scaly, erythematous dermatitis distributed around body orifices. The rash closely resembles that of zinc deficiency. Candida albicans often can be cultured from the skin lesions. Biotinidase deficiency, an inborn error, causes biotin deficiency, probably as a consequence of unpaired intestinal absorption, cellular salvage, and renal reclamation of biotin; biotinidase deficiency causes dermatologic manifestations similar to biotin deficiency. There is evidence that impaired fatty acid metabolism secondary to reduced activities of the biotin-dependent carboxylases (especially acetyl-CoA carboxylase) plays an etiologic role in the dermatologic manifestations of biotin deficiency. Candida infections secondary to impaired immune function might also contribute to the dermatitis of biotin deficiency.
 Am J Obstet Gynecol 1986 Nov;155(5):1082-5  


Zinc status in women with recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis.

Edman J, Sobel JD, Taylor ML

Zinc status has been shown to influence various cell-mediated immunologic mechanisms. These cell-mediated mechanisms are important in preventing mucocutaneous infections caused by Candida albicans. This study evaluated the relationship between zinc status and recurrent vaginal candidiasis by comparing plasma and erythrocyte zinc in 29 patients with recurrent vaginal candidiasis and 20 control subjects matched for age, race, and parity. The results indicated that there was a significantly lower level of plasma zinc in women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis (81 + 11.6 mg/dl) than in the control subjects (91 +/- 14.2 mg/dl) with a significant value of p = 0.015. These differences in plasma zinc levels were even greater when adjusted for dietary zinc and supplemental zinc with the use of analyses of covariance. No differences in erythrocyte zinc measurements were found between the two groups. These results suggest that mild zinc deficiency is associated with recurrent vaginal candidiasis and may play a role in the susceptibility of women to recurrent vaginal candidiasis.
 J Med Microbiol 1983 Aug;16(3):363-9  


The role of iron deficiency in experimentally-induced oral candidosis in the rat.

Rennie JS, Hutcheon AW, MacFarlane TW, MacDonald DG

In comparison with normal rats, those with iron deficiency anaemia showed no significant difference in susceptibility to experimental infection with Candida albicans although anaemic rats had a significantly greater incidence of persistent infection. These findings support the suggestion that patients with chronic candidosis should be investigated for iron deficiency.
 Arch Oral Biol 1982;27(6):497-503  


Experimental oral infection with the yeast Candida albicans in mice with or without inherited iron-deficiency anaemia (sla).

Sofaer JA, Holbrook WP, Southam JC

The role of iron deficiency in the development of oral candidosis was investigated using the mouse mutant sex-linked anaemia (sla). Susceptibility was assessed in terms of the recovery of organisms, particularly from oral swabs, and histological evidence of infection approximately 10 days after the last exposure to Candida albicans. The influence of three factors was studied in mixed groups of normal and anaemic mice: mode of inoculation, treatment with tetracycline and treatment with hydrocortisone. The most susceptible group had received drinking water containing tetracycline (1 mg/ml), hydrocortisone (0.1 mg/ml) and candida (5 X 10(4) c.f.u./ml for 6 days). Anaemic mice showed a rather higher rate of recovery of organisms and more frequent histological evidence of infection than normal mice in certain groups. Neither of these tendencies was statistically significant alone but, taken together, they suggest that some small difference of susceptibility may exist between normal mice and mice with sla. The mouse model could be of value in studying the influence of several other inherited disorders on susceptibility to candidosis. "

Hi Viking and others with compromized gut,

Because I am an 0-nonnie. I was not very happy with the protocols calling for avoidance of all sugars - starches and fruit.  There must be a much easier way ... by golly I think I've found IT! ... in a honey called Really Raw Honey.  

The theory goes that hives being dark and humid places are natural spots for fungal growth and fungi are deadly to bees.  if honey remains unheated, it retains this anti-fungal property.  And it does so for the entire tract including the mouth and teeth.  On top of that this honey heals cuts quickly ... truely astounding.  Had this for only six days now and my stomach is more settled than in the last 20 years.

On the thread of 'BTD and Crohn's a whole pile of info is there including Brighit45's use of peppermint pills,  Very helpful...

John

Hi John,

How is Really Raw Honey different from raw honey...? Isn't all raw honey unheated?

Thanks for the heads up about the other post.

Ehm, where do I use the xylitol and how much?

Since I have cut out sugars completely, and with the candida diet I feel there's not much suitable for some sugar coating.. So should I just take teaspoon pure every day or something? :|

Still on the lookout for capryl.. :S


Thanks

Well, now we get down to recipes.  

1.  I have hit the "a little fruit ok" stage, so I put it on the raspberries or blueberries (2 t to a couple of T fruit--and that's it, small portion only).  You may not be there yet.

2.  Last night, after a hot walk home (80's and humid) I had sparkling water (I am treating myself to good brands "for the duration"), about half a lime squeezed in, and xylitol to sweeten.

3.  At the hfs I found some almond meal (Bob's Red Mill here)--just finely ground blanched almonds.  One could do that oneself in a blender, just whirl them fine.  Then mix 2 T almonds, 2 t. xylitol, a little butter or ghee, a TINY pinch of salt, especially if your butter/ghee is unsalted. a few drops of boiling water and you get something like marzipan/almond candy.  I thought it was excellent.  On the Bob's package, they explain that the French use this to make the filling in almond pastry, so I think if one made a little more than the 2 T. worth (say double the recipe) and added an egg, one could make almond custard in an egg coddler or custard dish.  For the coddler, just stir the stuff together, dump it in, screw on the top, cook 5-10 minutes in a pot of already boiling water.  (Yes, someone GAVE us egg coddlers.)  Alternatively, if the handy device is not at hand, turn the oven on to medium about 10 minutes before you start, then boil a full kettle of water to use in a minute, put the stuff in a little oven-proof dish (aka custard cup), put the dish in a larger oven-proof glass dish or enamal pan or whatever, fill the larger pan with water so it goes half way up the side of the little dish, and bake in the medium oven until set (cooked, whatever--it should no longer be runny, may still jiggle a little in the middle).  I plan to try that one soon--but it should work.  I'll give feedback once I do.

4. Just put xylitol and almond meal together, stir, and eat.  Small portions are key.  Too much and the nuts are a stressor for the digestion.  This is very rich, and very small amounts can satisfy.  If sweet flavors are missing from life, these are (for me) great ways to add them back.

5.  I have not gotten there yet, but the almond stuff should work with a dash of unsweetened cocoa powder, if one misses chocolate.
These all take longer to type than to prepare (except the custard).  Good luck!
