not work for candid issues. This  has been ongoing for me for 5 months-not severe just there! anyone agree with this treelac or is there something better than this someone might know about? tks

After struggling with systemic candida overgrowth for 30 years, nothing ever took care of the problem.  I never tried the product you mentioned, but my natural food store had a couple of multi-approach formulas that I went through.  

Finally, about 14 years ago I cut out all sweeteners, coffee, cow dairy, learned about Dr. D'Adamo and started following my food plan to the letter and added Candidase - an anti-candida enzyme formula by Enzymedica.  I took and have continued to take -
Polyflora B, ARA6 and Intrinsia
I only took the Candidase for about 6 months and haven't needed it since.
There hasn't been a sign of an imbalance in all that time, so for me that was what I needed.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

There are a lot of costly supplements/herbs out there (with plastic bottles to dispose of afterwards). Lifestyle changes may be needed, personal daily habits to be improved incl bowel/colon function, what one consumes in terms of food/beverages will ensure longlasting results. A little raw garlic is inexpensive, eating moderate amounts earlier in the day in line with our natural circadian rhythms important. cutting down on sugars/dairy which feeds pathogenic yeasts/bacteria good. Eating according to one's individual constitution and current health status helpful.

Threelac definitely works!
I tried it before I knew about the blood group diet and it cleaned up my Candida inbalance, caused through ignorantly prescribed antibiotics!
If you live in the States, use Dr D's products because you can get them and they are they are tuned specifically for you.
Unfortunately we don't have that luxury. Cheers, John.

I think it's about that thema why a lot of diagnostic issues can be seen as or false or fraudulent ... often also due to fragmental thoughts....

I'm pretty positive my A (teacher) husband has a candida issue. Does anyone recommend going on a "candida diet" along with following the ER4YT health protocols, or are just the protocols enough? How long do people typically follow the candida diet? 6 weeks, 1 month, 6 months?

I dont know how long but I think it is individualized. I had candida years ago, but when I cut carbs, it goes away.

Sometimes, it only takes a few weeks.

I don't know if I'd ever recommend someone follow a one-size-fits-all candida diet.  From my experience, the body will control the candida as health conditions improve, so finding the reason the candida is "overgrowing" and working to correct that is what should be done.

If he has heavy metal toxicity that the candida may be helping control the symptoms of, then I absolutely recommend that he does NOT follow a candida diet, but eats a very high % of beneficial foods and work on detox rather than candida.

If he has been following the beneficial / avoid recommendations of the diet, but not the portions size and frequency, especially relating to sweets, then that should be the first focus.

If he hasn't been watching the avoid intake, then that should be the first focus, etc...

Get healthy starting with the gut so that digestion, absorption, and elimination are working, and the body will work on priorities after that...  Just keep eating a high % of beneficial foods and if SWAMIed - Genoharmonic combinations...

thanks ABJoe. the problem is that he is ER4YT resistent. he eats correct food at home but then goes out to lunch at work to chinese buffet with a diet coke. I'm hoping if i can get him to be super strict in order to get the candida under control then he will lose weight/feel better and it will be a motivator to stay on teh diet. he is not SWAMI'd but i think he is a teacher according to the book calculations. i guess some polyflora won't hurt either...

Candida issues seem to be widespread.  I had no idea how common they are and I also wasn't aware that antibiotics can set you up for candida big time.  

In the past when I had to take doctor prescribed antibiotics I always ate alot of yogurt and some probiotics to replenish the "good bacteria".  I definitely,at this time. don't believe that it is enough.

Before I read this post I ordered and received a product from http://www.NEEDS.com called Thorne's SF722 expressly made for candida issues.  According to the site it is very popular to use.

It comes in gel caps (250 of them).  Why so many?  Because I am supposed to take 5 gel caps at least two or three times a day.  At first this seemed too much.  I started off with 5 gel caps twice a day and today I actually took it three times.  

The reason that I'm posting this is I do feel a difference internally.  I suggest anyone with candida issues at least take a look at this product and make a decision for themselves.  

I know there are other products that do work but I wouldn't want to rule this out.  

In two or three weeks I'll know if it works.

A simple plan and it worked! I wish I had known about the diet when I was going through all that. What I was doing was pretty close, but my recovery would have been a lot faster if I had known the BEST foods for healing.

Do your best (along with the above suggestions) to live an orderly, comfortably scheduled life (including rest and sleep) to reduce stress. Reduce stress any way you can.

You may need to cut back the highest sugar content fruits and focus on the low sugar ones - still beneficial for you...  You do need to make sure you are getting adequate carbohydrates to function properly, though...

I remember years ago when my candida was causing chronic itching, I started drinking pau d' arco tea, and it would make the itching stop for a while. I was really impressed. Of course, it has to be used in conjunction with other treatments and dietary regulation, because it just comes back, otherwise.

I just tried a cup, since my psoriasis originates with leakygut/candida, and it seems I am now allergic to it, based on an itch developing in my psoriasis areas. I'll try it again later, since it is a great help with candida, but I'm afraid I won't be able to use it now. Maybe someday.

A Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor recommended that I take each of 3 vaginal suppository yeast treatments in 4 day succession. Four days of nightly miconazole, followed by four days of clortrimazole, then four days of boric acid powder in capsules.
She asked me to observe which caused the strongest reaction/AKA itch, and she hypothesized that the particular antifungal correlated with a particular strain of yeast that I was growing in excess.  For me, the boric acid caused the strongest reaction, so I use it when I feel a yeast flare up.

I have no idea whether there is data to support this approach to candida treatment. I also have no idea whether there is a way for males to use this approach.

for me, no to grains, and most cooked starch foods and baked cakes etc even with gluten-free flours, no to dairy foods apart from wonderful ghee, no to sugar and most sweeteners, no to most polyunsat oils, no to most fruits - just occasional fruits maybe, not too many nuts/seeds.

yes to regular animal proteins and fish, yes to raw garlic / fresh ginger, yes to herbs like basil, oregano, tarragon, rosemary, parsely, coriander/cilantro, yes to stress management and exercise/sunshine, yes to plenty of ghee/duck fat, yes to vegetables esp greens and root veg.
