    Hi Erika,

    I have the candida overgrowth primarily in my GI tract. I am not familiar with it specifically in the throat/esophagus region. I did have thrush once though, years ago (candida overgrowth throughout the body). This cleared up at the time with conventional medicines.

    What you could do is try the anti-candida diet, and see if it helps. If the primal diet is helping already, I would guess that the anti-candida diet would help too.

    It might help to get an expert opinion about this - perhaps you could visit a naturopathic doctor or someone else with expertise in this area. A little professional guidance from an expert can really help.

    Good luck!

    *Only* water and coffee? Meaning no food for 12 days? That doesn't sound healthy. Or fun. Also, I thought coffee was supposed to be bad for candida because it makes your body more acidic, which helps candida thrive.

    edit: I just found an abstract that says the opposite actually, that caffeine can stop candida from reproducing. Maybe people only think coffee is bad for candida because of the sweeteners and milk sugars that usually come with it?
