Hi all,

I have been on my NP's version of the candida diet for about 7 weeks now.  I have perceived no change in the candida spit test and I am wondering how long it takes before I can start seeing results from this treatment.   I was hoping to be able to see results within the first 3 months, as my NP says she thinks I have a moderate case of candida and if I follow the diet strictly I may be normalized within 6 mos.

What are your experiences?

I think healing time varies from person to person.  

What is your NP's diet version of fighting candida?  And, what supplements are you taking to help kill the yeast?

However, if you do have candida,

1.  I would highly recommend getting your secretor status tested because hands down, I think that's most important.

2. do you also have mercury fillings?  If so, you may need to address that first before killing off the candida.  When you have mercury fillings, candida acts as a protectant of sorts because it gobbles up the mercury vapor leeching out of your fillings, keeping it from damaging our other bodily organs/tissues.

I don't know if I have mercury fillings ... I don't think I do.  

As for treatment,  
antifungals:  2 Nystatin + 2 Oil of Oregano  twice a day
probiotics:   1  twice a day
diet:    no sugar, fruit, dairy, etc.   Allows non-processed meat and all vegetables except potatoes and corn in any amounts.  I am eating alot of sweet potato, carrot, peas, beets, brocolli, onion, garlic, olive oil.  

I will try to have my secretor status checked.  I am still curious to find out more about other people's healing experience with this overgrowth.

If you have "silver" fillings, you have mercury.

Imho, you are loading up on starchy veggies instead of concentrating on the beneficial "green" vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, kale, collard greens, romaine, etc.

Imho, you need way more probiotic.  Possibly as much as 7.5 to 10 billion live organisams a day.

I also think you need some of the items recommended in Dr. D's Yeast/Fungus Support Protocol  You should note in the protocol he recommends 2 probiotic a day.  I'm thinking the caprylic acid, the fucus, more polyflora, etc.

My further recommendation would be to follow the recommendations laid out in one of the health series books, and for at least two weeks or more eat nothing but bennies.  Just about any one of them would do, because for Type O's, there's little to no change across the board between the books for the food values.  The are almost identical.

Almost forgot.  The two Candida threads in this forum, stickeys both of them at the top have lots of information in them from other members about what they did to battle candida, and how long it took them.

Mercury fillings are easy to spot. They are shiny metal fillings.
