  • Vitamin C, Antifungals and more perhaps

    I read that vitamin C is both a immune strenghter and potential laxative/softener. What type would be the best to take?

    Besides Oil of Oregano, Coconut oil, garlic and onions, what else kills candida?

    Is nystatin over the counter?

    I am on prescription Diflucan for candida. I believe Nystatin requires a prescription as well. Vitamin C enhances the effectiveness of Diflucan, milk thistle is contraindicated.

    Rose hips is a natural source of vitamin c, don't know if its superior to regular vitamin c.

      Off the top of my head... olive leaf extract, ginger, pau d'arco, grapefruit seed extract, Boulardii. Lots of good probiotics and fermented foods.

          I'd guess Natasha Campbell-McBride's GAPS diet is probably the best choice for that—or any other severe gastrointestinal disorder. It's not that dissimilar to the Primal Blueprint but recommends against some foods that the PB would allow and that would be fine for any healthy person. It's effectively an updated version of the SCD. It also, with a WAPF twist, recommends daily consumption of homemade broth and fermented foods, such as yoghurt, sauerkraut, and beet kvass.

          There are some specific comments on candida infections on Dr Campbell-McBride's own website. See this page specially:

          Frequently Asked Questions on Gut And Psychology Syndrome, the condition behind many mental and physical problems, such as autism, hyperactivity and attention deficit, dyslexia, dyspraxia, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compul

          She does mention Saccharomyces boulardii (another yeast that will compete with candida), already mentioned in this thread. She says it can be useful but says they've found it should only be used for a short time as it will come to over-dominate in the gut if given a chance.

          Here's her very interesting book:

            Are you taking your C
            In 1970, I discovered that the sicker a patient was, the more ascorbic acid he would tolerate by mouth before diarrhea was produced. At least 80% of adult patients will tolerate 10 to 15 grams of ascorbic acid fine crystals in 1/2 cup water divided into 4 doses per 24 hours without having diarrhea. The astonishing finding was that all patients, tolerant of ascorbic acid, can take greater amounts of the substance orally without having diarrhea when ill or under stress. This increased tolerance is somewhat proportional to the toxicity of the disease being treated. - Robert F. Cathcart,M.D.

              Nystatin, Diflucan (fluconazole), Nizoral (ketaconazole) and miconazole are all really good antifungals and beat the oils hands down in terms of efficacy. The first two are available only by prescription while you can get forms of ketaconazole and miconazole over the counter. These over the counter varieties however are for external treatment only and should not be ingested. The will work pretty well however at taking care of local skin infections of yeast. Miconazole is sold mostly for athlete's foot and vagiinal thrush while ketaconazole comes in an anti-dandruff shampoo (now you know what causes dandruff). Ketaconazole is the more effective of the two. Taken externally they are relatively benign as far as its effects on the liver, the internal forms are prescription only because they have the ability to nuke your liver (not good).
