Re: Coconut oil & Grapefruit seed extract to combat Candida ?

I still eat carbohydrates(bread, rice, etc), although I also take digestive enzymes combined with HCL for optimal digestion and assimilation.

I also supplemented nutritionally with a good vitamin/mineral combination. What I discovered in my case was a severe vitamin/mineral deficiency I was experiencing. Although I crave the nutrients that I was lacking, the foods were acidic in nature which fed the yeast. The good bacteria was was virtually overrun, thus creating an imbalance in homeostasis. I love beer(yeast), ice cream(sugar), root beer(sugar), fast food(sugar). But since I've achieve balance, I don't have the cravings like I did before. I can still indulge but with more favorable consequences.

I have tried both of these. Taking organic cocunut oil spoonful twice a day and grapefruit seed extract tablets. It appears these products will only work if you are on a strict diet otherwise they will be ineffective. I didnt see any noticeable improvements to be honest but it could just be me.

Re: Coconut oil & Grapefruit seed extract to combat Candida ?

Coconut oil is used by a third of the worlds population as a cooking oil but it does contain Caprylic acid a natural Candida killer. As you may know one of the reasons that Candida albicans is difficult to diagnose when it becomes a problem is that it is normal to have some always present in the genitial and intestinal tracts.

I use it to balance my system--- I found out diets are very difficult to stay on as well as anti fungal drugs just stop working and also OTC remedies become ineffectiveand I am allergic to Diflucan and I alway have a GI tract reaction with taking any antibiotic after using antiibiotics 4 or 5 days. So, taking coconot oil is a simple thing to do!!

I wish you well---Harry

Re: Coconut oil & Grapefruit seed extract to combat Candida ?

After years of wasting time with ill health due to MY DIET. After given countless number of useless drugs and costly prescriptions. Being given test after test and diagnosed with all of the stomach/intestinal disorders EXCEPT FUNGUS. I am convinced I have issues with it.

I am convinced that fungus infections are in all of us. Maybe not the amish. Our diets, our meds - the very AIR we breath is just loaded with it!

I have begun a "Phase I" diet that will NOT have ANY corn - genetically modified in order to increase some sleazy pesticide making corporations profits - or it's derivatives (in food, vitamins, personal products, etc). NO PEANUTS - they are filthy with fungus (I will find raw organic cashews, almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts and butters. So many types).

NO grains that may contain HIGH levels of fungus: wheat, rye, barley,etc. NO ALCOHOL - this one is NOT gonna be easy for I love my organic red wine...whatever it takes. NO SOY UNLESS IT IS FERMENTED. VERY VERY IMPORTANT. MUST BE FERMENTED. DO NOT GIVE TO CHILDREN UNLESS IT IS FERMENTED. thank you.

I am stocked up on Grape Seed Extract, Oil of Oregano, Coconut oil/caps, carrot, garlic (BE CERTAIN IT IS NOT IRRADIATED OR IT WONT DO ANY GOOD), Olive Leaf Extract, all types of omega oils: fish, flax, borage, and lots of them, Pau D'Arco tea, carrot juice (mix w/water), granny smith apples, some berries, grass fed meats (FOR MOST OF OUR CATTLE IS FED GMO CORN AND IT IS JUST GARBAGE), wild caught SALMON, organically grown vegetables of all colors and types and get off my rear and start exercising!! Oh AND DIGESTIVE ENZYMES OCCASIONALLY AND LOTS OF PROBIOTICS: caps or yogurts. I swear by them!

I don't do sodas due to the ingredients containing either HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP--which I feel is junk, or questionable flavor enhancement cells that just makes me sick to think about. So IT IS TEA. TEA. HEALTHY VARIETY OF TEAS: chamomile, pau d'arco, hibiscus, dandelion, etc. FILTERED WATER IS THE BEST. Or, sometimes my raw dairy. NO MORE MICROWAVE EITHER.

I am RIGHT NOW ordering nystatin and diflucan. Good health to all!!
