Have smelly breath in the morning im scared this is candida which can become cancerous will i die?

Candida and Cancer: Although I have seen some websites & reports linking candida as a possible contributing cause of some cancers, to my knowledge, no peer-reviewed articles in medical journals support that theory. Simply visit your dentist to find out the cause of your morning breath, rule out candida in your mouth & get a full soft tissue cancer screening. Poor oral hygiene & a dry mouth are the most likely causes. ...Read more

Is it possible to have candida die off reaction from starting new probiotics? Have had drunk feeling several weeks. Started when I began probiotic.

Experiencing candida die off symptom nasal odor, how do I get rid of it? It started after I added drops of grapefruit seed extract in a sinus rinse.

Experiencing candida die off symptom nasal odor, how do I get rid of it? It started after I added drops of grapefruit seed extract in a sinus rinse.

Sinusitis? See MD: I've never heard of "candida die off", but quick online search suggests it is nonscientific claptrap. So is "systemic" candidiasis. (Sorry if that bursts a bubble for you.) Nasal discharge with odor suggests sinus infection that may need an antibiotic. Sinus rinse alone is unlikely to help much, with or without "graprefruit seed extract" or any other "natural" product. See your GP. Good luck. ...Read more
