I personally have not used candex, nor have I found any supplements to really help with anything. Actually there was one from univera, I think they used to call it ageless extra... it has a new name I believe. Anyway it did wonders for brain fog, but I found that eating a diet that lowers the stress on the body can achieve the same thing. The thing about any sort of product is that you will often see testimonials, but you will not see controlled studies. You will not see the results of those who a product was not effective. A few people will give positive results, but even the testimonials might have been altered. Remember that the goal of most business is to make money, and they often wont put anything but positive stuff to support your product. When your looking at candida treatments, try to find therapies that are as objective as possible.
I would suggest working on everything at the same time. There is no real order to it, the way I would look at it is to just be easy on yourself. And if that means lowering stress, eating a diet that lowers stress, going for walks and what not. Dont look at candida as a battle, because it gets complicated that way. Look at candida as your bodies way to tell you that you need to slow down. I have yet to hear anyones candida going away over night, so the whole one stop die off thing seems kinda strange.
Now as for your diet, I would suggest the 80/10/10 or SC diet for starters. See what works for you... keep the 80% of your fruits and veggies mostly raw if possible, but make sure to still cook the harder veggies (easier on digestion). Cook your grains in water (rice oats), and try to eat lighter meats. Avoid fried and processed foods for now, they seem to be harder on the body. Use Food combining and whatnot. These are things to try out, and see what works for you. Dont think candida diet, but ease of life diet. Also drink lots of water.
I found that the audio cds by Wayne Dyer really helped me. The power of intention changed my life... and lead me to Dr. Hawkins. Each person has their own way though, I chose a more spiritual route.
I would suggest that your bodies liver function is lower as well. Is it congested, fatty, etc?... I cant say for sure. The easiest thing to do is to make digestion easier on the body. See your own reactions for this.
I wouldnt do Liver Flushing personally, I think there are far better ways. I am beginning to research into alkalized Ionized Water , or kagan water. So far the clinical results I have read are very promising. After seeing this video...
Anyway this ionized Alkaline Water is used in treatments in Japanese hospitals and Korean hospitals. One in 5 homes in japan own these units which hooks up right to the tap. Dr. Shinya also has his own website, if you are interested in his diet and protocol. This is not a b.s. treatment, there is heavy evidence that this is very effective in bowel treatment. I am not sure how effective this treatment might be in relation to candida, but it could be a very cheap and effective way to restore the bowels of people who have candida and IBS.
