Recommendations re: candidiasis medication?

Posted by trish on June 14, 2001 at 17:32:07:

Is Nystatin the best, or Difulcan, or should I request another specific brand?

Hi, Trish.

I, personally, wouldn't take Nizoral OR Diflucan on a bet!

Walt,
Forgive me if you have already addressed this in the archives; I wasn't able to find the explanation that I was looking for. I have a Candida problem (4+ on CDSA, high dysbiosis, Blastocystis Hominus, but not excessive LGS), and my doctor wants to put me on Diflucan for 3 weeks. The Candida was resistant to ALL natural substances listed on the CDSA, in addition to Nystatin. UGH! I don't want to take Diflucan because I fear side effects. And now I'm reading that you wouldn't take it on a bet. Why is that? Any recommendations? Thank you...

Several of us have had success with Candex, a natural product - cellulase & probiotics.

It's funny that you mention that, JJ. I just submitted a post to the "Leaky Gut Blues" series of (just above this particular series), and Kornbelt mentioned this supplement. I have never heard of it before. I'd be grateful to hear more about it. Thank you for the post!

Candex is the enzyme cellulase and probiotics. The cellulase digests the membrane of the yeast and it has no defense against it. It is a 6 day treatment and has really helped many people including me. You still have to follow the protocol, diet, detox, etc., but it really helps the road to recovery. You can repeat the treatment in 2-3 months if needed. If your local health food store doesn't carry it, you can either order it from Health Naturally, or better yet, have your local health food store contact Health Naturally for the info on how they can order it from the manufacturer. Their number is 1-850-584-8800

Hi, Queen.

You will find that the Diflucan will not resolve this problem. If you read the package insert you will know why I would not take it when I already knew that it is not the solution to the problem anyhow. Docs who prescribe it for this condition have no idea what they are treating. The only entity who benefits is the pharmaceutical company.

I would not treat my candida with anything but nystatin (so far as prescribed stuff is concerned) until I had my LGS under at least some control.

Hope this helps.

Walt



Re: Down with Diflucan!

Thank you for your post, Walt. I will definitely avoid Diflucan. My problem is that the CDSA revealed that my Candida is resistant to Nystatin, as well as ALL natural substances listed on the CDSA. I've got one smart buggie! Helping You suggested that I take Primal Defense instead and try other natural methods not listed in the CDSA Yeast Sensitivity panel. Kornbelt and JJ also recommended Candex, saying that they've had a lot of success with this supplement. What is your take on this?



Oral amphotericin B??

I think it was oral amphotericin B that the dr mentioned he prescribes for candidiasis, but from what I read in my yeast book, (even the) FDA opposes it's use?? Miconazole, ketoconazole, griseofulvin, clotrimazole, flucytosine all sound like they have undesirable side-effects, so I appreciate your suggestion (nystatin). I am going to refuse to take anything else.
I just bought some caprylic acid: does 1000 mg twice a day sound ok?
Also bought some multi enzyme formula capsules (both from Vitamin World store):one capsule contains: betaine hydrochloride (200 mg), pepsin (50 mg) bromelain (50 mg) amylase (100 mg) lipase (25 mg) cellulase enzymes (10 mg) ox bile (30 mg) pancreas substance (200 mg) papain (50 mg) protease (100 mg). I'd appreciate a suggestion about how many of these to take for my diagnosed candidiasis.
I just ate lunch, and know I should wait an hour before and/or after eating to take either of these supplements but how many each day?
Thanks again for your help!
Trish



What is a CDSA?

Sorry! I'm still learning the lingo here. Is that in the glossary? It sounds like a culture (just guessing?)? It shows how to better treat a person's specific yeast critters they have?

Hi, Queen.

My guess is that your candida is resistant in vitro but not in vivo where you have your own immunity to help. I would give Nystatin a good try again and see. Be sure you are taking at least 1,000,000 units each dose and each dose is taken at least an hour before or 2 hours after eating or drinking.

Let us know how you do. These other "natural" remedies are also helpful in conjunction with your own immunity so don't rule them out of the Nystatin doesn't work.

Hope this helps.

Re: Oral amphotericin B for C-RS?? NO! (Archive)

Hi, Trish.

ANYONE who would prescribe Amphotericin B for C-RS, does not understand the problem. IF the person is near death from AIDS, terminal cancer chemotherapy, or immune deficiency of any cause, candida can invade the blood stream and THEN this approach can be justified--even though the treatment kills the patient more often than it cures. The only justification for using it is that the patient is going to die anyhow so why not give him this last chance?

C-RS is more of a "misery" and I have never even heard of it killing a patient.

Your enzyme question: These are to help your LGS and so, indirectly help with the C-RS. They should be taken midway though a meal.

Hope this helps.

Walt
