IMO if you are having problems with Candida (yeast) infection, its important to remove starchy, high carb foods from the diet and ramp up your intake of leafy greens. Plants contain so many wonderful healing micro-nutriments in synergy with one another that its a shame not to utilize them!

I have found putting my raw greens in a blender to be extremely helpful. No worries about cooking, chewing. To this I add kefir water which is a type of home grown probiotic which is a mix of beneficial yeasts and bacteria.

I make several glass of this up in one big batch, and drink it thru out the day.

Ivory, have you tried probiotics in a capsule form?
Something like Pearls Probiotic?

The point here is not to kill the Candida, but to make changes in your intestinal track that make it difficult for it to exist. And to create conditions which favor beneficial bacteria growth. This crowds the bad guy out.

Whenever you take probiotics, its a good idea to send them down with something to munch on. So take them with food. Here's a wiki link to an article on oligosaccharides which is the type of fiber the beneficials favor!

Additionally there's a fiber supplement you can take called "Benefibre" that's inulin... a type of oligosaccharide. Here's a link to that:

Wasn't having that much progress with the Oreganol P73; I'm now trying Seagate brand olive leaf extract capsules. I have so many sensitivies to meds., foods, etc.. that I started out slowly with this, but a few days I ramped up the number of capsules.

I've been reading about adrenal--fungal connection. It seems that adrenal fatigue can either contribute to getting yeast/fungal growth or the fungal infections cause the adrenal fatigue. I did read on a candida board that a woman who was fighting a candida infection for a year had great improvement after just one week of having her adrenal fatigue addressed. I am SO hoping this will be the case for me.

Two things can potentially speed the healing of your toenails, in addition to what you're already doing.

If your nails are simply yellow, it helps to use an emory board to remove a layer of nail, as the fungus is actually IN the nail... soak your nail in rubbing alcohol....just saturate cotton balls and let them sit on there after you've removed a layer of nail... then rub the tea tree oil into the fresh nail and wear sandals....ie. keep your feet exposed to the air... as much as possible. Its possible, too, that you are reinfecting yourself with your foot wear.

If your nail is actually separated from the nail bed, get a pair of heavy duty cuticle snippers and remove the nail where its no longer attached to the nail bed... then do the alcohol/ tea tree oil/sandal route. Healthy nail will regrow over the bed.

This was the only way I was able cure my problem... a problem I'd had for literally decades, ever since I damaged the nail bed by dropping something heavy on it... um... three times in 2 weeks. LOL

I also think being on thyroid hormones helped, too.
Everything works better in the body when they're regulated properly.

Good luck with this!

Please keep us updated on your progress. I have a toenail problem on one or two toes that I have been treating with Caprylistat (internally) and tea tree oil (topically) that has improved, but not gone away completely. I want it gone for good!

Ivory, hey!

I haven't tried it, there may be others here who have.
I know that oregano oil (and thyme oil, too.. that's why its in Listerine) have antibacterial effects... they both contain thymol.

Just take it 4 hours away from your thyroid meds to be on the safe side.

Does it interfere with absorption of thyroid med.? I want to use it to fight a fungal infection.

Thank you.
