What Happens During Candida Dying Off

  1. 1. Candida Die-Off http://www.yeastinfection.org Presented by http://www.yeastinfection.org
  2. 2. What is Candida Die-Off?• When yeast cells are killed rapidly, they release toxic products into your bloodstream. In the case of the Candida Albicans yeast, this means 79 different toxic substances, including acetaldehyde and ethanol. These can cause symptoms ranging from headaches to fever. http://www.yeastinfection.org• If you have started your Candida Diet and you are experiencing some of the Die-Off symptoms, there are supplements that you can take to make your treatment easier. Weve listed the best of them below, along with some alternative strategies that you can try too.
  3. 3. Candida Die-Off• Acetaldehyde in particular has a whole host of detrimental effects on your health and wellbeing.• It can impair your brain function and even kill brain cells.• Your endocrine, immune and respiratory systems can all be http://www.yeastinfection.org affected, and it also damages the membranes of your red blood cells, reducing their ability to carry oxygen round the body.• These by-products also cause allergic reactions and inflammation that lead to an array of undesirable symptoms.
  4. 4. • Candida Die-Off symptoms will vary from person to person, as each will have different degrees of infestation.• If you are having severe Die-Off symptoms, slow down your treatment and reduce your dosage of probiotics and antifungals. http://www.yeastinfection.org• The liver is your main pathway for eliminating toxins, and the Die-Off symptoms mean that it is being overwhelmed.
  5. 5. Candida Die-Off Symptoms• Here is a list of some of the symptoms you might experience during a die-off (otherwise known as a Herxheimer reaction). • Nausea • Headache, fatigue, dizziness • Swollen glands http://www.yeastinfection.org • Bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea • Increased joint or muscle pain • Elevated heart rate • Chills, cold feeling in your extremities • Body itchiness, hives or rashes • Sweating • Fever • Skin breakouts • Recurring vaginal, prostate and sinus infections
  6. 6. • The Die-Off, or Herxheimer reaction, has been documented in research on antifungals.• One phenomenon deserving emphasis is seen occasionally when therapy is initiated. It suggests the Herxheimer reaction ... The reaction is usually limited to a flu-like syndrome of mild http://www.yeastinfection.org generalized aching and lowgrade fever, but may also encompass an exacerbation of the patients allergic manifestations.
  7. 7. Dealing with Candida Die-Off• These symptoms normally clear up within a week or so, but could last a little longer.• However, there are a few things you can do to slow down this reaction or expel the toxins faster. • Take a supplement like Candidate, Molybdenum or Milk Thistle to http://www.yeastinfection.org help your liver expel the toxins. Molybdenum in particular is very useful for those suffering from Die-Off. It converts the neurotoxin acetaldehyde into acetic acid, which is then expelled by your body or even converted into helpful digestive enzymes.
  8. 8. • Cut back or temporarily discontinue antifungal supplements. Antifungals work by breaking down the walls of the Candida yeast cells, which then release the many toxins that the Candida has been producing. Reducing your antifungal dosage will cut down the amount of toxins being released into your http://www.yeastinfection.org bloodstream. When you feel better, you can start to increase it again.• Reduce your dosage of probiotics. A course of good probiotics will repopulate your gut, crowd out the Candida, restore your stomach acidity and boost your immune system. Probiotics are less likely than antifungals to cause Die-Off, but if you start to experience the symptoms you can temporarily reduce your dosage.
  9. 9. • Increase water intake to flush out the toxins faster. If you want to feel better, all those byproducts that are released by the Candida yeast need to leave your body. You can give them a push by drinking more water.• Slow down and rest as much as possible. http://www.yeastinfection.org Stress can weaken your adrenals and reduce your bodys ability to fight pathogens like a fungal infection. Relaxing and taking some personal time will help your immune system to do what it was designed to do.• ake 1000 mg of Vitamin C twice daily. This multi-purpose vitamin boosts your adrenals and helps restore your immune system to health.
