I have been taking apple cider vinegar after eating as well as high dose garlic supplements(two different kinds) one is odorless immediate release and the other is an allicin rich garlic supplement bought at a health food store. Also, have cut way back on sugars but not entirely and have increased green vegetables. Also taking a multi vitamin. In doing research on the problem many hours i have come to the conclusion that the best way to fight candida is threefold in nature. #1 since an acid ph balance help candida i have started focusing on natural ways to raise the alkiline levels in my body. Namely apple cider vinegar, green vegetable, and water. Fewer sodas very acidic. Garlic has been shown to inhibit growth of candida while killing just about every harmful parasite and fungi known to man. Also, apple cider vinegar is extremely effective at raising alkilinity to kill fungi as well as killing them directly through strong antifungal properties. Remember folks any supplement designed to kill candida is not a naturally occurring supplement like garlic or apple cider vinegar. Also the claims of threelac and oxygen among others are usually exagerated. Its a money thing. Garlic and apple cider vinegar as well as raising the alkiline levels are a guaranteed cure. Go to the health food store and pick up garlicin or kyolic fresh garlic with allicin and apple cider vinegar. This will clear you out in no time. After 7 days you will feel like a new human being. The other pluses of this sure fire cure are that you can easily supplement with garlic as well as apple cider vinegar for the rest of your life to stay healthy. Get back to nature it always works better. God has always provided our cures.

Also on a related note many including myself wonder why the medical establishmnet is so slow to recognize the greatest threat to survival of the twentieth century namely candida. The simple reason is that their bottom line amount of money they bring in would evaporate with the eradication of such a hideous disease as candida. All disease starts in the digeative system and quickly weakens the immune system which then compounds the problem which already exists. Think about it all successful industries or lucrative ones depend on a continual supply of new business. If cars always stayed new and ran new the automotive industry would dry up if computers lasted forever and just needed cheap updates no more computers would be sold. Its the same thing with the health care industry if they cured all disease which they undoubtedly know how through simple very natural methods they would be looking for other careers. We are on the cusp of a new awareness into health. When id did the above natural treatments of my canida infection i was very sick. I could not handle stress, sick as hell on rainy wet days, and when i sweated a sweet smell of mold emitted from my sweat, also i could smell mold in my nose throughout some days. I had sever food sensitivities and just felt like i was dying. Extreme nervousness and obsessive compulsive thoughts, terrible brain fog, confusion, and overall misery. Almost immediately after starting the garlic and apple cider vinegar and reducing acidic foods i developed a very bad flu like state. This flu like state lasted 7 days and quickly went away. My health returned. My happiness returned and a whole new world full of happiness replaced the dream like gray depressing world i had been accustomed to. People this is free advice. I have no websites and no vested interest. Try it you are only a wekk or so from feeling better. Also i would highly recommend continuing the garlic supplements and apple cider vinegar at some level from now on.

Why does it not work for everyone. How do you know what works for everyone. Maybe the cure is as quick as this for everyone but the varying levels of damage take longer to recover. A broken leg can be set but it is still broken. The underlying cases of the illness must be addressed before the body can begin to heal itself. Also i doubt if you have ever tried the exact plan for which i speak. Many people tend to discount the effectiveness of taking away an organisms environment. For instance human beings are complex organisms which can survive under many different conditions. Simple organsims such as viruses and fungi require a very razor thin environment in which they survive. One of the reasons why our bodies crave sugar is because of the fungi screaming for us to have it. When we do indulge we get a reaction becuase the enemy is energized and we are ultimatley weakened. Take away the acidic state which the fungi require and replace it with an alkaline environment and take the two nbest natural yeast killers ever devised on Gods green earth and do this for a period of time like for the rest of your life and your health will return. Do not buy into the lies that we have been fed for so long that chemicals created in a laboratory can do anything effectively. They only cause side effects and in the end hasten death. Stay natural,

Candida is very easy to get rid of and the results are guaranteed. Simply remove the environment in which they survive. Candida loves acidic and sugary environents. Cut down on sugar do not eliminate it simply eat more vegetables and fruit and drink apple cider vinegar and reduce you intake of cokes and other highly acidic foods. The ph balance in your body will change almost over night and the candida will begin to weaken. Include the garlic supplements and apple cider vinegar fo the rest of your life and you will always be healthy. Many of the people who post the hopeless messages on this board are confused by the greed machine or actively works for an industry which seeks you money and not the return of your health. I have no links no web pages and  no money to make. Just old fashioned and uncommon horse sense about what works. Take a fish out of water and it will die take candida out of acid and it will too.

weird.  i never claimed to know what works for everyone...that was you.

and yeah, i've tried what you're talking about, only to a much more severe degree (and still am doing it now).  i don't take any chemicals.  i assume you're discrediting threelac, which though it is expensive is still all natural, and coincidentally it's been pretty much the only supplement that has shown me some semblance of relief. 

thanks for sharing your story.

Certainly the diet-factor is potentially an important part of getting relief.

However most struggle with cutting out carbs to any degree– They just can't do it for any length of time.  And even if they do manage to cut them out, quite often when they return to a more normal diet, there issues return.

Secondly I've had many people follow a low-carb diet and take things like garlic caps and not get much in the way of relief do the severity of their issues.

I think sometimes when we look at what does and doesnt heal somebody we are focused entirely on the visible results in changes in health which of course is understandable. One must however move away from this observation and deduce what exactly is the problem and how to eradicate it. Too many times the medical field only looks at the symptoms nnot the underlying problem. Since most people of the previous generations never complained to as great an extent about the phenomenon of candida it can be concluded that this condition not candida is relatively new. When looking at this problem and how to fix it we have to figure out what has changed. Going low carb is not the answer. Low carb is one of the most acidic diets ever created. How anyone would suggest a low carb diet is beyond me. What i suggest is a more realistic goal not to return back to cave man days but rather to more like we ate 30 or 40 years ago. This means cutting back on the continuous onslaught of sugar ridden highly processed foods with no real nutrients and instead opting for green vegetable with a steak or maybe some corn or potatoes with butter and other whole foods that are grown and cultivated and hunted. Who cares about the glycemic effect. Just cut out the cake, candy bars, cokes, chocolate, mcdonalds, burger king, french foods, and do it in a reasonable manner so as not weaken the immune system. When people get sick from candida they are desperate and cannot usually reason very well because their mental faculties are greatly encumbered. Simply eat healthy we all know what that means but keep it balanced. You want to ensure that you get a balanced nutritional meal. The apple cider vinegar if drank right after a meal will pretty much cut the excessive amounts of sugar down to a much more manageable state and the garlic will cleanup what ever the diet and the apple cider vinegar misses. Dont do anything that is painful. If you normally drink 4 or 5 cokes a day cut it to one a day or two very small cokes maybe 6 ounces a piece and then the rest of the day eat healthy. Your health if it has been crushed by candida will probably take many months to heal but every week you will feel better and your mind will begin to clear. There is hope but you must side step these snake oils such as oxygen which never was intended to be in the body in this form and which can probably cause serious harm. Also, Ill be honest threelac may be a wonderful product but im sure it is quite expensive my methodology is very inexpensive and safe to continue indefinitely. Once again, my suggestions are as follows,

#1 drink apple cider vinegar after each meal to kill candida directly and also raise the alkilinity of your ph to kill it indirectly apple cider vinegar should be organic, unfiltered, with mother.

#2 take garlic supplement with high allicin yield. Garlic has been shown to be a veryyyy powerful killer of candida

#3 cut out the bs from your diet like fast food, heavily fried food, cokes, cakes, candy bars and eat more natural foods but do not focus on the glycemic content to such a great extent. Also cheating occasionally is ok once you begin to feel better and as long as your doing all the simple steps i have laid out. BBQ joints are the perfect fast food for this because they offer real vegetable and healthier cuts of meat. Sure it costs a few dollars more but the apple cider vinegar will help to curb your appetite so it all equalizes out.

#4 get plenty of rest

#5 realize that even after the candida is gone your body will take time to recover from this incredible stress that has been placed on it day and night.

#6 take a very high quality multi-vitamin preferably with whole foods included.

#7 to reduce the stress (i know its very bad) take holy basil three times per day this is a Godsend.

Also in conclusion i would never claim that this will work for everyone i only know what worked for me and i know the way i feel now compared to when i had candida. I actually became suicidal at one point. Day after day of vertigo, hopelessness, depression, and watched as the life i had created slowly but surely slipped through my fingers. I was unable to work fo a whole year after high dose prednisone turned my condition into a full blown syndrome. When this syndrome hit me i felt as if the old world dissapeared and was replaced with an unfamiliar world of darkness with no color and their was no hope. It can be very bad. But dont give up keep persevering and soon you will be stronger emotionall and physically for having gone through this.

How do you drink the cider vinegar?  Do you drink it straight or diluted in water?  how much of it do you drink?  And how much of the garlic supplement do you take?
Thanks for giving me more details.  :)

Thank you for taking the time to write all this information done and sharing it with me. I personally started ACV by Braggs, which I've had sitting in my refrigerator for years and tried it once for two days, not long enough. I was having so many symptoms I couldn't tell what was working and what was not. So I'm back on it and I have been taking Allicin by Allimed a very strong form for over two weeks now. It was good to read that I'm doing all that you suggested before reading your posts. I am on a antifungal right now only for 10 days, 3 days left on it. I was sick the first two days of taking it, but my energy increased, my gas pains and bloating was in control. I will finish it out and continue on my allicin and AVC. Keep posting you seem to have touched a lot of people here. I've been suffering 4 years they said with Ulcerated Colitis, constant diarreah every morning for over a hour. Still having the problem, but hopefully a change is coming. I see an improvement slightly.

I am very confused. I have been having stomach issues off and on for several years.I saw my dr. again and after ruling out some more serious
issues, she suggested I see a nutritionist . The nutritionist thinks I have overgrowth of yeast and wants me to go on yeast, sugar free diet. I have
been trying to do some research on the internet and am now totally confused. There are so many different opinions and many different products to purchase, all claiming to be the one cure for candida. Can anybody give
me some advice on how to approach this problem.

Hello confused, welcome to the club!  Candida cannot be cured, only contained, both with elimination of any food that is sugar based or that turns into sugar in the body, as well as improving friendly bacteria in your digestive track.  There are indeed many lotions and potions out there.  The best I can tell you is that you must be prepared to make some important lifestyle changes, improve your eating habits and take some high quality probiotics for the rest of your life.  I recently joined this site and found some good resources.  You must be the one making changes.  Understand that there is not one magic potion that is going to fix you.  YOU must take charge of your health and start with simple solutions.  Only YOU will know what is right for your body or not.

Hope that helps.

First off, there is no "cure" for candida.

You can manage candida, but you simply can't blow it out of your system so it never, ever comes back.  Some are better at managing it without the long-term use of dietary supplements than what others can.

Certainly diet is a factor for many.

I'd pick a course of action and try it for 60 days.  Then make your evaluation.

I will say I'm not convinced that apple-cider vinegar, grape seed extract, oil of oregano, coconut oil or even drinking loads of water are the most effective ways to manage candida.

I am willing to make the necessary changes, I am just not sure what those
changes should be. Can you recommend a high quality probiotic?
Is there anything else I should be taking as I eliminate all sugar and yeast
products? Do I need to take any antifungal medicine? My dr. gave me
5 days of diflucan but don't think that did much. I also have some symptoms of thrush, with white spots on my lips in the morning. That has not gone away after taking the 5 day course of diflucan. What about "Threelac"
that I keep reading about on candida websites? Thanks for any advice
you can give me.

I tried Diflucan for 20 days and nothing improved, I'm now trying Nizol and just in a day I noticed my energy increased, my feet were warm and no longer cold, my gut bloating was down and it didn't hurt after I ate and I can concentrate better. I'm doing two bottles of 16oz water with at least 3 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and honey in it twice a day and a allicin by Allimed, a very potent garlic. Also I'm doing 3 caps of metamucil in the morning. Today by far was my best day ever. I had to take a rectal suppository yesterday (I have ulcerated colitis, which I think is from the yeast or Lyme's Disease not sure) but I'm feeling so, so, so, good. I will never stop the ACV or Allicin. I'm noticed the last couple of days I have a cold sore on my lip, so maybe all the flushing of toxins I'm doing it brought it on. I would try the Nizol. Also, my yeast was determined by a stool test from Great Plains just to let you know.

May we all be in better health.

Greetings, interesting recommendations, mass doses of garlic & a.c.v.

you did however not include dosages , etc. for the a.c.v., and you recommended fresh kyolic garlic with allicin. I have not heard of that, kyolic aged garlic does not contain allicin if I remember correctly. That has always been the main debate whether aged, or fresh is best, because of the allicin. Please be more specific about dosages of both products, ie. how much, when, etc. that works best for you. You are taking (2) different garlic products at the same time?! What about massive "die-off" symptoms, as they say?

I agree what you said "GOD made His natural things, etc. I have wondered though about the effects of a.c.v. for candida as it is a "cured or fermented' type product which would normally be a no-no for that problem, so they say.

I will conclude with this "sure thing" that can be absolutely relied on 100 %, and that is that Jesus Christ is Lord, and the devil is a liar! That's an absolute! Thanks for your input.

Greetings again, a couple of additional thoughts, what's wrong with "fresh garlic bulbs", one or two cloves with meals or whatever? If one wants to go natural, as you mentioned, that's the ticket for that, amen? Also you mentioned "holy basil". Do you mean fresh basil, or a supplement herb type? Please be more specific when you recommend things. Thanks again.

Greeting to iwillgetbetter, hope you do! What is Nizol, a drug? And did you really mean (3) "tablespoons" of a.c.v. twice daily?! That's alot compared to what's normally recommended. Paul Bragg has a popular book on a.c.v. and does not recommend near that dosage, if I remember correctly. I'm not saying against it, just want to make sure you did'nt mean "teaspoons" or what ever. How long have you been on that doage? Thanks.

The Bragg bottle says 1-2 teaspoons 2-3 times a day in 8 oz of water with honey for a healthy drink. I had a great day with my bathroom issues but I fell hard off the wagon yesterday and today my bathroom was terrible. The drug I mentioned was a antifungal , but it's so hard on the liver that I'm going to start Threelac instead and watch my diet closely. I'm too young to destroy my liver! Allicin is a part of garlic but its not the garlic itself, please read about allicin by Allimax or Allimed it has some great articles in the website. Here's my thing, my doc can't say for sure if I have Lyme's Disease or not, one week he said yes and next no, so I maybe dealing with two issues here, yeast and Lyme's. I take 6 capsules of the Allimed Allicin, 2, 2, 2 spread throughout the day. That's the dose is you have Lyme's otherwise it say one capsule three times a day, I'm doubling that dose. I really feel much better taking all my supplements. I take many epsom salt/hydrogen peroxide baths as well. I just have to leave bread and sugar alone, period and my bowels are manageable. I see a Lyme's doc in December maybe he can shed more light on my situation.

I hope I help somewhat in answering your questions.

Good comments.  However, I read on the forum previously that vinegar is not good for Candida.  I lived in the Philippines for 10 yrs. and loved eating the egg rolls there (called Lumpia) which they dipped in vinegar and garlic.  Since being back in States (since 1968) made or bought egg rolls and crushed garlic and added it to apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar to dip them in.  Stopped using this because the forum said vinegar was not good.  Have noticed my system is quite acidic since stopping the vinegar (drink too much coffee which is acidic).  After reading your comments, think I will go back to the apple cider vinegar as really need to alkalinize my system.  ThreeLac, Inulation and recently Oxy-Flush have worked, but think I will also go back to the vinegar.  Oh, have you ever heard of Kefir?  You make it by adding to warm milk which ferments and supposed to be good baceria contained in the Kefir (fresh and better than Yogurt), but then it is fermented,  Thanks.

I just posted a reply to one of your earlier comments.  In this you mention fruit and because I was advised in the forum not to eat fruit, have given it up completely.  Gave up my rice (ugh) and eat no carbs.  Eat some meat, lotsa fish, and fresh vegetables and salads.  Make stir fry w/vegetables, etc. and am very satisfied w/this diet.  Never cared much for sweets, no sodas whatsoever, or alcohol, so nothing to give up there.  Really miss my bananas mostly and other fruits which they say I should not eat.  Am like you--natural is best.  Use garlic in everything and love it.  Will even crush a clove and wash it down w/some water (don't need the garlic pills).  SO--think I am going to go back to my vinegar/garlic routine and try adding some fruit.  What do you think about V-8 juice--always used it before, but unsalted.  Thanks.
