Zand Candida Quick Cleanse
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
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

Yes, good idea!: I don't know what is in your herbal parasite cleanse pill but many herbs for parasites also kill unfriendly bacteria and yeast. Some may also kill some of our friendly flora. It is reasonable to take probiotics when taking any antimicrobial, be it pharmaceutical or natural. For best results take them at separate times. ...Read more
Is probiotic powder effective?Is buttermilk or curd a probiotic?Any natural probiotics?Doc has asked me to take probiotics but need a reliable brand
Perhaps, marketing: yet few clinical trials, little reliable data. Like many OTC products, labels does not even match the contents. While some data about probiotic benefits with clostridium difficile & ulcerative colitis exists, few reliable brands. Thus natural fermented products likely a better option for now. Study the: "Human Microbiome Project" for insights; >another decade to sort out some of the complexity. ...Read more
I have chronic bacterial vaginosis. Antibiotics/ boric acid only temporary relief. How can I perm recolonize my lactobacilli, vag probiotics no good ?
Lactobacillus: Make some yogurt at home, dilute it with some sterile water and make it into a douche. Homemade yogurt is full of lactobacillus. I also recommend a product called fem flora from swanson vitamins. It is a vaginal probiotic and I've had really good luck in my chronic BV patients. Also, no undies at bedtime, no thongs, wipe front to back and don't use the tub for hygeine, shower. ...Read more
Wash vagina with plain yogurt with no sugar help balance normal flora? I try to cure yeast infection. Currently applied miconazole nitrate.
Infant black tongue. Tried nystatin, then swabbed for culture and tried fluconazole, no yeast on culture. Dr said iron stain? Doesn't get supplement.
Prob okay, but...: hairy black tongue can occur in infants because of infection or failure of the tongue papillae (bumps) to properly shed their cells like it should. it is important to distinguish if the black could be melanin, since that might indicated a skin disorder. black 'spots' can also be a sign of a genetic condition, so it is important to have this evaluated further, likely with biopsy. ...Read more
Can you eat popcorn on a Candida diet?I'm on the diet b/c I've had a yeast infection for 3 mon, can't take fluconazole, & tried creams & boric acid.
Candida diet: Diets that are low in sugar and carbohydrates but high in raw garlic and probiotics can help keep yeast infections at bay. Herbal supplements such as Pau D'Arco (tincture or capsule form) or the Candida-Cleanse by SolaRay may be helpful. Popcorn does breakdown to a simple carbohydrate but overall is relatively low in sugar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?
Real antifungal: Tolaftate is available without a prescription. Terbinafine topical is also good. I'd prefer to see you use a topical agent rather than taking medication systemically whenever possible. These should be effective but it may take a few weeks. Apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and garlic are promoted on "natural healing" sites for everything -- trying them would be your business. Best wishes. ...Read more
Oral candidiasis: Thrush, an uncommon occurrence in normal adults should warrant testing immune function & HIV. If thrush is caused by something reversible (antibiotics, smoking, ill-fitting dentures, steroids or diabetes), these factors must be corrected as part of the treatment. You might try rinsing with 3% hydrogen peroxide. Don't know what you mean by being sensitive to ketoconazole. Clarify and re-ask. ...Read more
Yes: "toxins" is a word that is overused. Pesticides, mercury, lead, antibiotics, etc can all be taken in in the diet and are difficult to remove. Best to not take them in. Then there are the imaginary toxins that companies scare you with so you will buy their expensive detox product -- these are fake. Dont buy it! eat healthy, stay hydrated. Avoid constipation and your body will do the rest. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Diagnosed w/ candida parapsilosis but had alergic reaction to med. Can i treat it with yeast & sugar free diet same as c.Albicans?
Hey i'm taking gnc 10 bilion probiotic complex becoz yeast overgrowth.is taking gnc 25 bilion or 50 bilion is for fast recovery from candida overgrowt?
No: That cannot be assumed to be true, because almost NONE of the probiotic supplements have scientific studies proving a particular supplement at particular doses can lead to "fast" recovery from a particular disease. "Yeast overgrowth" is very vague, because it does not say HOW MUCH overgrowth, nor even WHERE in the body the overgrowth is, or which TYPE of yeast. Usually, supplements are "untested". ...Read more
