Once you have recognized and begun implementing a treatment for Candida albicans, you can expect a short period of discomfort ranging from a few days, to a few weeks, depending on the severity of the Candidiasis that you have.
This period of discomfort is often referred to as Candida die off symptoms, or a healing crisis. This happens to many sufferers of Candidiasis and is due to the rapid die off of Candida yeast cells within your body when you first begin a treatment for Candida albicans.
Factors for Die Off Symptoms
The two biggest factors that determine the severity of Candida die off symptoms, and the length of time that these symptoms last, will depend on how bad your Candidiasis actually is, and how prepared your primary organs of elimination are, to handle the onslaught of dead Candida cells.
Knowing about these Candida die off symptoms and why you may experience them, will help you to better cope during this period and provide some relief as this process takes place.
You may even be able to help speed up this process by following the advice given here on this page. The biggest reason why people experience die off symptoms are because their primary organs of elimination get backed up and have to work overtime once the masses of dead Candida cells begin getting processed by your body.
The colon, liver and kidneys are the primary elimination organs in your body. If these aren’t working properly, then the result is a number of symptoms including: sluggishness, headaches, aches and pains, fatigue and digestive problems as well as a number of mental and emotional instability.
So, the first step, before doing a treatment for Candida albicans, is to make sure that these primary elimination organs are functioning properly because they will be working overtime once a Candida treatment begins and you start experiencing Candida die off symptoms.
How to Prepare
There are many types of ways to ensure that your elimination organs are primed for a Candida treatment program. One of the most popular methods is to do a standard 2 day fast, with the 3rd day consuming only organic steamed veggies and fresh juices.
You will want to do 1 enema session per day, or, a colon hydrotherapy session, once the fasting is complete, to ensure that the colon is thoroughly cleansed of all residual toxins. Many times during a fast, it is difficult for the bowels to evacuate since normal rhythm and timing are thrown off.
Once your elimination organs are primed, it is safe to follow a natural treatment for Candida albicans. Most people will experience Candida die off symptoms early in their treatment program as this is when the bulk of the Candida yeast colonies will die off.
Some of the more common Candida die off symptoms that many people experience are: fatigue, headaches, sore throat, ‘brain fog’, depression, irritability, muscle aches, dizziness, nausea, and a general sense of instability in their well being.
What does it mean?
While these symptoms are indeed unfavorable, it is something to actually be celebrated, since it means that the Candida treatment you are undergoing is actually working to kill the Candida yeast cells within your body. You are well on your way to feeling better again and this is the first tangible sign that you are getting better.
It is sometimes very difficult to know, if indeed, you are experiencing Candida die off symptoms, or, if you are simply experiencing symptoms of Candida, which can both be very similar symptoms.
The best advice for you is to not concern yourself with this and focus on the 2 biggest factors that you can control which is to assist your body’s own elimination process by doing a fast and enema/hydrotherapy session before your treatment for Candida albicans, and second, following the anti Candida diet as described in the Restore 3 protocol.
