taking probiotics, antifungals and detoxifying supplements during the candida cleanse enhances the effectiveness of the cleanse in terms of beating down the candida population in the body and preventing the yeasts from turning into their more destructive fungal form. in the beginning weeks of the cleanse, if you have candida overgrowth, you will experience die-off symptoms while the yeasts are starved of their main fuel source – sugar. you may feel very tired, headachy and irritable among other things. taking supplements that support the liver and other detoxification organs can help to get you through the die-off more quickly and with less intense symptoms. probiotics are important in rebuilding the healthy flora of the digestive tract that has been taken over by candida. the more healthy bacteria that are present in the digestive tract, the less room there is for the yeasts and they essentially get squeezed out. anti-fungal herbs increase the die-off aspect of the cleanse which is what you want. however, its important that you are supporting the body’s detox functions at the same time. if you think you have candida, you will want to stay on the cleanse and supplements for about 3 months for the best effect.
– CAN-SOL is an herbal tincture recommended by naturopath, dr. anstett, to be taken in conjunction with the diet. dr. anstett says there are a lot of candida cleanse kits on the market that are not effective. the manufacturer of can-sol, pure herbs, is the one he trusts and uses in his own practice. the recommended dosage is 3 dropperfuls 3 times in a glass of distilled water. we have also heard of success with taking oregano oil, but haven’t tested this out. let us know how if this has worked for you!
the main herb in the can-sol formula is chaparral, a strong anti-fungal and anti-parasitic herb. it is extremely effective in quickly eradicating fungal yeasts/candida from the body. the herb also helps the body remove heavy metals and toxins. the powerful cleansing action of chaparral increases the liver’s workload. we strongly suggest that anyone with a weakened liver or immune-system work with a qualified practitioner to strengthen the body before embarking on any type of intense cleanse and before taking this supplement. this supplement should not be used by pregnant or nursing women
– ZYFLAMEND is an herbal anti-inflammatory supplement that quickly calms systemic inflammation. the recommended dosage is two capsules a day. this is a great supplement to take if you develop headaches early on in the cleanse as the body adjusts to not having caffeine or sugar. in addition to the anti-inflammatory herbs like ginger and turmeric, zyflamend contains herbs that help the body adjust to stress. these include holy basil and chinese skullcap. this herb should not be taken by pregnant or nursing women.
– KYO-DOLPHILUS Probiotics are an important part of clearing candida from the body because they reintroduce beneficial bacteria to your GI tract. Supplementing with a high quality probiotic supplement builds up the good bacteria colonies that can overtake the yeast in number and essentially crowd them out. healthy bacteria also balance the acidity in the stomach and boost immune function.
