B vitamins

Posted by Dahlimama on March 14, 2003 at 11:46:36:

Hi Doc,

What's your opinion on using B vitamins when you are battling yeast?

I noticed on Chrons.net that they recommend them with yeast infection. I was at one point under the care of Leo Galland who also recommeded them.

One the other hand I notice Biamonte and HY seem to think they tend to exacerbate the problem.

I know I am deficent. I have the cracks at the corners of my mouth and do tend to have more engery when I take them.
Still, I don't want to prolong the problem.

Just wondered what your experience has been.

Thanks,

Dalimama

I'm not the doc, but I did get over my candida while taking a mega b complex. I used nystatin as an antifungal and did a strict diet at the same time. I took C, E and B during that time.

I am high strung :-) and need the calming effect of the B complex.

Just a sampling of one for your research!

Let me take this opportunity to update my position on supplements and candida.

Just like certain antioxidants can get in the way of chemotherapy, antioxidants can also get in the way of ANTIFUNGALS. Therefore, if you take antifungals and antioxidants at the same time, you can cancel out the effects of the antifungal. Also, candida HAS been known to feed on certain vitamins including B vitamins and iron. Now, this doesn't mean that this will happen on every occasion and nobody knows to what extent this takes place. It's just something to keep in mind so that you have all of the facts. So, if you are going to take antifungals, at the very least, take the antioxidant supplements away from the antifungals.

Now, if you are going to use lactofermented foods and HSO organsisms to erradicate your canddia, you have no need to worry about antioxidant supplements because the HSO organisms are not affected negatively by antioxidants

In my experience, it shouldn't take any longer than 3 months to get rid of at least 90% of the candida. Not taking the antioxidant supplements for that amount of time is not going to create much of a problem but if you feel you need them, just take them away from the antifungals if you use them.

Dr. Biamonte specializes in candida so having treated thousands of patients, he realizes this senerio is a possible set-back for those that choose to take the supplements. Not everyone will set themselves back by taking antioxidants at the same time but undoubtedly, some will. Clinical experience has shown this to be true. I hope this helps you

"antioxidant supplements for that amount of time is not going to create much of a problem but if you feel you need them, just take them away from the antifungals if you use them."

So when you say take them away from the antifungals, is two hours after taking antifungals enough time away?

Also, do you include green tea in the forbidden antioxidant list that DOES interfere with the effectivenss of antifungals, and can I use the same 2 hour protocol with green tea to maintain the effectiveness of my current antifungal protocol?

I do take toxicol as my naturopath advised along with my antifungals.

I checked the ingredients and this is whats in the toxicol

Will any of these ingredients effect antifungals:

DL METHIONINE
ARGININE HYDROCHLORIDE
TAURINE
CYSTEINE HYDROCHLORIDE
GLUTAMIC ACID
THIAMINE HYDROCHLORIDE
RIBOFLAVINE
NICOTINIC ACID
CYANOCOBALAMIN
INOSITOLCHOLINE BITARTRATE
LECITHIN
UREA
MAGNESIUM OROTATE(EQUIV 2.6MG MAGNES)
POTASSIUM CHLORIDE
POTASSIUM CHLORIDE (EQUIV. 26.2MG POTASSIUM)
SODIUM SULFATE
SODIUM CITRATE
TARAXACUM OFFICINALE EXT. EQUIV DRY ROOT 40MG
GENTIAN POWDER
ANGLICA ARCHANGLICA EXT. EQUIV DRY ROOT (10MG
CHELIDONIUM MAJUS EXT EQUIV DRY HERB 5MG
LYCOPODIUM CLAVATUM EXT EQUIV FLOWERING HERB TOP 5MG

Hi, Dahlimama.

I, too, have treated "thousands of patients".

It is my opinion that the natural resistance of the body mind is our best tool for fighting the candida imbalance.
That means that the vitamins do the bodymind MORE good than they help the candida. SO, I recommend people take them while treating the LGS that allows the candida to sprout.

Hope this helps.

Walt
