It could very well be something else.

 

I would consider maybe stopping everything for a brief time and seeing how your issues react.

Keep in mind that not everyone goes through "die-off", and for most it only lasts a few days and it's not going to bother your day to day routine.

Hi I am new to this...
I naturally deduced based on a long history of rashes that candida was probably my problem. my doctor put me on an anti-fungal presecription last year and it was the only thing that worked but then rash and acne came back over time. thus after doing some research I learned of candida and thought maybe this is finally my answer after years of dermatology for acne and my rash on back and chest
I have been on Threelac now for about 3 1/2 weeks. I am only taking it along with eating yogurt and drinking lots of fluids. What else should i be doing?My stomach and bowel movements are fine it's my itchy skin. When i upped to two packets i started to get puffy eyes & really crusty, flaky skin around my eyes and lips then a welt-like thing under my left eye. Is this "die-off" Can someone explain? How can i manage these symptoms--creams? antihistamines? it is aweful! itchy and watery, i look like i've aged 10 years in my eyes. Anyone know how long this is expected to last?
heeeelllllpppp....

Yep, sounds like the "die-off" reported issues that many have shared with me.

I suggest reading both "die-off" related threads at the beginning of this forum-- they are extremely informative and helpful.

Die-off isn't fun to go through, but it's telling you that "yes", you do have a problem and the dietary supplement you're taking is trying to correct that problem.

You can apply any sort of topical oinment you wish, to give yourself some relief.

Typically this phase can last a couple days to a couple weeks.

This whole conversation is scaring me!  I started about a week or two ago with itching under my arms.  At first I thought it was hayfever because every spring I get an itchy neck and this seemed to sort of follow that this year.  But then it started to get worse and I realized it was the same kind of itching that I have had in the past with yeast infections.  My armpits were red and swollen and I wanted to rip the skin off it was so itchy!

Last week I determined it was the yeast or candida overgrowth and immediately cut  sugar from my diet (that has always helped in the past), then I bought plain yogurt to sooth the burning itch and I had heard that boining ginger root and either soaking in it or drinking it helps so I bought that too. 

Friday in the middle of the night when I thought I was going to go out of my mind I got online and found a website that talked about Threelac.  After reading all about it, I ordered it and payed extra for the 2 day delivery.  by Tuesday, no Threelac yet but  my sister brought me a diflucan pill which I immediately took.  Wednesday it came and I used one packet and one packet today (Thursday) and I am more itchy today than I was before!  The thought of this getting worse is almost more than I can handle.  I have too many things to do and I am terrified of what is going to happen!

But the fact is die-off isn't some awful beast that some perish from! LOL!

As a matter of fact most that go through die-off usually suffer very little as far as constipation or itchy skin.  Die-off usually doesn't knock someone flat on their back for a week!  And with activated charcoal (or bentonite clay), extra fiber and lots of water die-off can be minimized even more.

Quite frankly I'd be more worried about what candida can do to your health if left untreated as opposed to what a little die-off could do.  There are several experts that are linking candida and fungus to cancer amongst other more serious health issues.

A candida overgrowth or "die-off"?

I think I know which one is smarter decision.

Many supplement or natural food stores offer activated charcoal or bentonite clay... Just make sure you take them at a point in the day when you aren't eating or taking other supplements.  Give them an hour's buffer both before and after.

Here's one Internet merchant that offers activated charcoal-- http://www.candida-yeast-problems.com/order.html

Also keep in mind that you can take or apply other products in order to give you relief of your localized issues that could be die-off related such as Benedryl or an anti-itch salve or powder.

There must be something wrong with me because the benadryl doesn't work and the anti-itch cream burns and makes it worse.

If I take the Threelac more than once a day will it make the die off faster or just more miserable?

The answer to your question is "yes". :)

 

Unfortunately until you've "crossed the bridge" no one knows.  If you have important engagements coming up I'd stick to maybe 1 packet per day or even 1/2 packet per day.

The yeast in Threelac is "deactivated" or dead if you prefer.

It would have no affect on anyone with candida related issues.

BTW, it's not yeast you have to be fearful of, but sugar, especially white sugar.

Candida yeast doesn't feed off of more yeast.

I actually use a Monistate Equal cream to the itchy rash I have on my hand.  I can not seem to get it all the way gone though. But it does provide relief.

I am on Hormone replacement therapy.  I have read that it helps candida thrive.  I have noticed the symptoms get worse with hormones. Do I have to stop the hormones? E

Do I have to be on a candida diet with threelac?  How long do I have to do the candida diet?

Definetly the diet should be routine and threelac does not take care of candida all by itself.   Think of it this way, if you are putting in the good stuff (threelac) to take care of the bad stuff, (refined sugar and carbohydrates) Does it make sense to keep replenishing the digestive system with the bad stuff?  The answer is no.  The diet and the threelac will work together and you should stay on the diet for quite some time.  This is not going to go away overnight.  It took a long time to develope and will take time, and a strong will to get yourself well.

No one likes feeling itchy, bloaty, foggy, and no one likes feeling like they have the flu. The die off symptoms are temporary.  You need to tell your self, this is temporary and the symptoms are telling you that something good is happening in spite of how you feel.  It is a storm that will pass and when the rainy stops, the sun shines for a while. This may happen periodically.

What you will need to keep in mine is that candida in your system is affecting many of your body functions including the hormones.  You may not need the hormone replacement therapy but need to work on the candida issues, so that your immune system can start to rebuild and repair itself.

Go back to your doctor and see if he or she is willing to work with you. May I ask why you are on hormone replacement threapy in the first place? Sometimes you are on it for very good reasons, and sometimes, it is because the dr. doesn't know what else to try and test are showing that your hormones are off. If he or she is  prescribing for symptoms, and not looking at solving the source of the symptoms?  If it is because of a hysterectomy early in life, that is one thing, but if it because they are just experimenting to see if your symptoms resolve with the therapy, that is another. Just something to think about.

Candida in the system can affect alot of different functions, and the Kreb's cycle is messed up for sure.  It can affect, thyroid glands, pituitary glands, liver, bladder, hotmones, sinus, lungs, and many more systems in the body, including brain function.

So doesn't it make sense if you know it is Candida causing the issues to work on the Candida first?  I was very confused until my chiropracter gave me some food for thought,  Muscle testing revealed everything that was bothering me, is related to the Candida overgrowth in one way or another.  Once I started fighting off the candida many things improved.

I first needed to improve my fatigue, and stength, I also needed to regain being able to function in the brain, so that I could retain what I was learning, then I needed to reduce my pain in my muscles and joints, and so on and so on.  Figure out what symptoms bother and hinder you the most and work on finding out how you can help your body over come this and what deficiences may be causing it. Then work on it.

You also need to be reasonable sure that there isn't something else going on, so a check up and blood work up is probably a good idea.

The first thing I wound up working on was the diet.  Hope this answers your question if you need to stay on the diet when taking the three lac.  To me, taking threelac and not trying to stay on the diet, is like shoveling pooh pooh against the tide.

Ok I can see why you need the hormone replacement therapy.  You definetly need to continue with that.

Good to stay on the diet. I am hopping things get better and better for you.  It is really a tough thing to get the candida under control.

Best news is that I have met some that are under control and are feeling very well, so it will happen if we keep working at it.

Hello there-I know you are you quite frustrated. You will need to stay away from all white breads, cakes, cookies, etc. No candy at all. I was told on my diet that pineapple and mango are excellent because they have enzymes that help your stomach. Also, I eat apples and some pears but no bananas or grapes. Don't eat red meat..only organic turkey, chicken and fish. Definately no tomatoes. Aloe vera juice is great to regulate the Ph in your stomach and to keep the digestive track going. I mix it with water or cranberry juice. Don't drink any soda at all. Even limit your juice. I mainly drink cranberry juice, soy milk, some tea and water. If you can get you some 35% hydrogen peroxide and follow the directions as you can use it it various ways to combat your problem. Probably have to get it from a naturopatic/allternative dr. Well, hope this helps you. Probably too, if you keep reading what others have said on here on how to get relief I bet you will start to feel better. I know it can get overwhelming as I am also dealing with the same thing but keep up and don't let it get the best of you. My faith has also helped me to get through as well. Take care and best to ya

I would like some help gauging how bad my die-off might be so I can plan and prepare. 

I have a severe case of candida overgrowth.  On the questionaires I'm answering "yes" to every question.  I'm pretty miserable most days between migraines, IBS, sinus problems, fatigue, muscles aches and mental fog.  Will I just be bed-ridden and much worse?  And for how long?

I also have type 2 diabetes that is well controlled most of the time so I have my white sugar and white flour in check but not fully eliminated.  I'm willing to go stricter on my diet to help kill the yeast.  How long should I plan to eliminate them?  This is important since I will have to adjust insulin to match my carb intake.

I plan to take Threelac, Inulin, Dissolved Oxygen Supplement, Activated Charcoal, Digestive Enzymes, and Milk Thistle.  I haven't decided on starting doses yet so advice here is helpful too.

Thanks :)
