herbal anti candida remedies

walt, i know you arent an expert on herbs, but i was wondering if you or anyone had any stomach/intestinal tract irritation problems while taking taking herbs, such as garlic, golden seal , grapefruit seed extract, undecenoic acid ( from castor bean oil). my health is pretty much fully restored ( thanks to you) after a bad bout with c-rs etc, but just recently ie every day for the last week or so i have been having stomach/gut irritation problems, which i feel are due to excess acid ( i took a zantac-and the irritation went away- any downside to zantac/ i dont like any drug unless absolutley necessary)im hoping i didnt screw up the lining of my gut/stomach by taking too many natural remedies, i had been taking them for 4 or 5 months under a natural doctors orders and just recently went off them ( i did add some extra stuff in here and there as stated above , but i didnt overdose on the stuff).would a gastroenterologist be able to confirm any ulcers/erosions through a barium swallow etc/ any downside to those tests.? also , i tested real high for excess stomach acid a while ago , is this something that can be cured with skilled relaxation etc, or is some other treatment necessary? i know it could be related to stress, i thought there may be other causes. i'm kind of ticked off that i have been doing so well ( no prior stomach complaints) and now this happens.thanks.

HI, John.

My first question is for you to describe EXACTLY what you have been doing, for how long, with the regular practice of SR and how you checked it out to be sure your technique is "working".

Next, I would go to the "link" page for this 'site & connect to the herbologist for the specific herb questions. Let us know what you learn & I will learn right along with you.

Thanks for sharing your progress. I hope our exchange will help others to see what they could do to help themselves.

Walt

I get what I think is similar just with GSE. 5 drops in
6 oz. once a day is o.k., twice a day is sometimes o.k.
Haven't figured it out exactly. GSE does not test acidic
with pH paper. My DC is familiar with its use and said
it commonly irritates stomach/gut if I understood him
correctly. Will question him more closely next week. Martha
