Which is a good dosage of garlic for a yeast syndrome sufferer?

Which is a good dosage of garlic for a yeast syndrome sufferer?

It depends...: This depends on the type/form of garlic. The simplest form is to take raw organic garlic; crush the clove and take one clove 2-3 times a day with food. But you can also take garlic capsules with allicin- I like Allicillin from Designs For Health; one capsule 2-3x/day with food.
This should be done along with a candida diet, probiotics and other antifungals.
