I just started turmeric and it seems to be helping a lot. From my understanding since I have had candida for a long time 8 years since I was 14 the candida formed a bio layer to protect itself. This protective little area of candida can survive most other treatments and as soon as there is Sugar present it spreads out like nobodies business. I have been trying to get rid of candida for the past 4 years with an extensive diet but I could never fully get better. Turmeric is one of the only natural cures to help destroy the candida bio film and it also coats your gut invite yellow compound which actually helps prevent the flare up of the candida. I am not a doctor but if you are suffering from Candida and can't seem to get better I would recommend eating eggs with turmeric every morning (the eggs keep all the turmeric inside and help carry it to your gut) as well as taking vitamin c such as a grapefruit (vitamin c has been found in early studies to make the turmeric 5 times more effective). Hopefully this is my final treatment attempt.
