There are reasons why candida likes to overgrow in some of us. Have you been tested for Celiac Disease (a gluten sensitivity)? CD and other intestinal problems of the small intestine leave a person congested, the digested food travels slowly through the intestine giving more time for yeasts and other organisms to overgrow. I take 1 to 2 magnesiom oxide capsules at bedtime to help this problem. I use herbal laxatives and magnesium laxatives also when needed. It is important to have a bowel movement within an hour of eating a meal and one reason that people don't have this response is low stomach acid. I have foud lately that if I take the magnesium daily and use Pau D'arco to treat the candida this is very good for keeping the yeasts from overgrowing. Before arriving at this balance I did about 2 weeks of salt water flushes in the morning, used a few teaspoons of castor oil to help clean out the small and large intestine. I do weekly parasite maintenance doses and also took several weeks of hoarhound tea. I have used the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
