Best Candida Cleanse
As food to enjoy: 'Systemic candida' is a pop diagnosis that the vast majority of scientific physicians believe is a scam or at least a popular fad delusion. You'll be offered innumerable ways of managing it, but nobody's ever cured. If you just have a mucosal or skin infection with candida, use a simple topical Rx to manage it. Garlic does have real medical uses -- a scientific holist can advise you. ...Read more
Best not to: Your body has a natural mechanism for eliminating waste, and generally it is better to let it handle it. Cleansing usually involves ingesting or inserting various 'natural' toxins which serve only to upset your gut's normal homeostasis (=balanced environment). Occasionally the body needs help restoring itself back to balance, esp after antibiotics, so probiotics may help in this specific case. ...Read more
Mostly, you don't.: Everybody has some candida on their body surfaces, inside and out; too much candida, or candida growing in the wrong place, can be a disease, but blaming normal colonization with candida for everything that ails you, or trying to cure everything with antifungal medications, is generally useless. So-called "candida diets" work because they eliminate foods that are unhealthy for other reasons. ...Read more
Hey please suggest me best probiotic brand for yeast overgrowth ( candida ) and best brand multivitamin for fast recovery i'm on candida free diet thx?
No single best: There's no one best probiotic or multivitamin for everyone.I advise a heat-stable probiotic with multiple strains and at least 20 billion per capsule-good brands include Renew Life, Advanced Naturals,PB8 and Prescript Assist.

Plain/acidophilus: You need a non-sweetened yogurt that contains active acidophilus, the friendly bacteria that helps keep yeast in check. Many commercial brands do not have it, so be sure to read the label. And if it doesn't work, see your doctor, because something else may be going on. ...Read more
What is the most effective, preferrably natural, way to abolish candida? I have tried all the creams, fluconazol, nystatin, probiotics & coconut oil.
No single best way: Different strains of candida are sensitive/resistant to diff. Treatments so there is no single best way. It is ideal to do a culture with a lab like genova or doctor's data that will do sensitivity testing to see what works best, but it doesn't always grow on culture. No treatment will work without a very low starch diet for several months. I advise consulting a holistic md with expertise in this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Your body: The concept 'cleanse' or 'detox' uses the idea that your body is full of toxins when in fact your organs are responsible for eliminating extraneous substances. Your body cleanses itself, in a sense. A product claiming to do what your organs already do may do nothing or it may in fact be harmful. ...Read more
Adjunct: This is a pricey antimicrobial soap that won't touch the bacteria that cause acne as they live deep in the pilosebaceous apparatus. Your best first-line by far is benzoyl peroxide; if you are not clear in two weeks, get with your personal physician. All acne is manageable if you're willing to be a partner with an evidence-based health-care provider. ...Read more

Please don't do this: Both "candida" and "hypoglycemia" are fad diagnoses. "Cleanses" can land you in the ICU. You may have found company and sympathy from "independent medical thinkers", but the price you'll pay is never feeling well again. You need a relationship with an evidence-based practitioner in your community who's open to holistic and complementary modes of healing. This will get you productive, feeling betr ...Read more
Is antibacterial dial bar soap good to clean genitals with I heard that antibacterial removes the good bacteria?
Regular soap is fine: "Antibacterial" soap is a marketing gimmick. The fact is, soaps of any kind remove bacteria from the skin surface. Their overuse can alter the normal balance of good vs bad bacteria. The problem with "antibacterial" soaps is that it breeds bacteria resistance, which confers a survival advantage. This means that the resistant bacteria will grow even in the presence of the "antibacterial" soap. ...Read more
