"just last week I decided that I was going to get rid of it once and for all"
To get intoxicated to the point of getting candida was a long process and to detox is likewise going to be a very long process.
You do not get rid of candida in a week time, to try to go quickly about it will generate heavy die-off because your body just cannot cope with the rate at which your treatment goes.
HEAVY DIE OFF
Means you are getting there, overpowering reaction means you should sloww down with the treat,memt. This is not a race.
Antioxydants helps a lot with die off symptoms and should be taken on a daily basis: vit A (fishoil) vit C. vit E. as well as lecithin, magnesium (liquid or powder to facilitate assimilation), calcium (liq. or pow.), linseed oil (in gel cap they do not run rancid or even better use the seed and grind them yourself)
Menses make free games is association with candida. No need to worry it will get back to normal as you detox. However, menses is a way our body has to cleanse itself, so if you do not get them, the candida in your uterine remains and accumulates, which might call for more local antifungal treatment- see uterine antifungal treatment post above.
I always try to do more local antifungal treatment prior to menses due time to avoid the heavy die-off menses can cause. And do extra enemas and extra antioxydants during menses.
Take it easy. An enema a day if needed (each second day is better but with heavy die off it feels great)
