Candid Overgrowth | Why Do I Need An Anti-fungal?


I have Naturally Cured Myself of Candida Overgrowth through diet, taking probiotics and by using an anti-fungal. Using an anti-fungal is one of the Most Important Things that you need to do in order to cure yourself from Candida Overgrowth.

Anti- fungals are on my Top 5 Thing To Do To Cure Candida Overgrowth list. The reason why they are so important is because anti-fungals are responsible for killing the candida organisms and helping to naturally restore your body’s pH.

Anti-fungals are effective at killing candida organisms quickly, which will help you to be candida free in a shorter amount of time, than if you were not taking an anti-fungal.

Anti-fungals are a key ingredient to naturally curing yourself of candida overgrowth because diet alone is not enough to stop candida organisms from thriving.

Diet is great at slowing down the rate of multiplying, but candida organisms are very stifle at adapting. They will continue to multiply (even if it has slowed down) unless you kill them faster than they can multiply. Anti-fungals help with that!

When Should I Take An Anti-fungal?

Killing candida organisms is one of the Keys to naturally curing your candida overgrowth, but there is a right way to do this. You have to know the best times when you should take an anti-fungal.

The best time to take anti-fungals is first thing in the morning, before you eat anything and a few minutes to 1 hour before you eat anything.

The reason why you want to take an anti fungal first thing in the morning, before you eat anything, is because when the anti-fungal reaches your digestive tract and there is no food in it, you are directly killing the candida overgrowth organisms.

The reason why you want to eat an anti-fungal around the same time that you eat something is because what ever you eat, it will eventually be turned into sugar. Candida needs sugar to live and thrive. However, if you eat an anti-fungal right before you eat, by time your food has been converted into the sugar that the candida likes to eat, the anti-fungal is also present, and guess what?

The candida organisms will “run” away from the antifungals (because it is poisonous to them). If you do this consistently and long enough the candida organism will eventually die of starvation.
The Candida Organism will take in a “mouthful” of poison when it tries to eat the sugar. This will eventually kill it.

In both scenarios the candida organism die, which rids you of the overgrowth and your body can continue to naturally heal and cure itself.

Risk Of Taking Anti-Fungals



If you are taking an all natural anti-fungal, such as garlic or coconut oil, you may be wondering, “What could the rest possibly be?”

To answer this as simply as I can… Die-Off!

During my 40 Day Candida Cleanse, I experienced some major Die-Off symptoms. I was in so much pain and discomfort because I was unaware of how to properly use both probiotics and anti-fungals.

What I didn’t know when I started my 40 Day Detox was that the more aggressive you are with trying to “Kill” candida organisms in your body, the more die- off symptoms I was going to experience.

The reason why their is more harsh die-off symptoms is because when you kill the candida organisms, the dead candida is actually toxic to our body. This add toxicity in the body will have unpleasant side-effects.

So you want to make sure that you are using anti-fungals properly.

How To Properly Use Anti-fungals?




The proper way and less to use anti-fungals is to use them in small amounts first and then gradually increase the dosage.

So how I started out was I was taking an anti-fungal 3 times a day (and sometimes more).

I would take a caprylic acid tablet with my 3 meals per day and the I would cook meals with “extra” added anti-fungals, like a lot of garlic, ginger or cayenne pepper.

This would cause me to experience very harsh die-off symptoms and made my candida cleanse very difficult.

With that being said for the first few days you may want to start off with 1 anti-fungal, once a day. Watch how your body reacts. If you have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, feel free to use 1 anti-fungal twice a day.

Try to gradually increase your dosage to that it is high (3 – 6 times a day) without causing extreme die-off symptoms.

By doing it this way you will effectively kill the candida organisms while reducing the amount of die-off symptoms as well as the severity.

Can I speed up the candida cleanse by adding a lot of anti-fungals?

To answer this questions in a very basic way the answer would be yes, in some cases that is.

More anti-fungals will kill more candida organisms faster.

However, you may be killing the candida organisms faster, but with the added stress on your body from all of the toxic waste from the dead candida organisms you may be doing more harm than good.

For some people your age and the severity of your candida overgrowth problem may be the greatest difference in if more anti-fungals can actually help to cure your candida overgrowth faster.

When I started my Candida Cleanse, I know for a fact that I was struggling with candida for a little under a year and a half. So it was not as severe as someone who has maybe seen struggling with candida overgrowth for 5 years, 10 years, 20 years or more!

Also, when I found out that I had candida overgrowth I was in my mid twenties and I did not have many healthy issues (well, besides candida overgrowth) so my body was able to very quickly help me to fight candida overgrowth and to help me to cure myself.

However, this may not be the case for an older person or someone suffering from another medical condition. It may take longer for them to heal even by adding more anti-fungals or worse, adding more anti-fungals may even be counterproductive and it may cause the person to get even more ill.

I know that we want to rid ourselves from candida overgrowth and the vey irritating symptoms, but remember, slow ad steady wins the race.
