Candida Die Off Symptoms

Candida Die Off Symptoms can be quite devastating. During a Candida Die off program some people experience severe symptoms while others experience only a slight discomfort and avoid uncomfortable symptoms all together. It is my purpose on this page to help you eliminate these uncomfortable symptoms.

Candida Elimination

My advice is to make gradual changes so as not to overwhelm your body. This way you experience as few as possible die off symptoms.

When the body is cleansing, toxins are released. These toxins consist of dead and dying yeast cells and must be eliminated from the body during this candida elimination program.

The elimination channels in the body are capable of ridding your body of these toxins.

These channels are going to be working overtime and may need some more assistance. You could feel overly tired at this point. This is very common.

Candida die off is sometimes referred to as the Herxheimer Reaction.

The following definition is taken from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. "The Herxheimer reaction (also knows as Jarisch-Herxheimer or Herx) occurs when large quantities of toxins released into the body as bacteria (typically Spirochetal bacteria) die, due to antibiotic treatment or rapid detoxification'.

Candida Die Off Symptoms

Some of the symptoms you may experience while doing a body cleanse could include

  • dizziness
  • headaches

  • anxiety
  • gas and bloating
  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • joint pain
  • muscle pain
  • general body aching
  • sore throat
  • tiredness
  • sweating
  • skin breakouts

Dietary Changes

Some dietary changes are going to be important for you to continue on your healing path.

The most important is to stop eating the refined carbs and the junk foods. Once you get used to going without the refined carbohydrates and the junk foods, you will find that it is quite easy to do. Your body will tell you, that you don't want them.

You will gain more control of your nutritional eating rather than your emotional eating.

Fresh veggies and fruits, as they contain more water and are less congesting to the body, are essential during a Candida Program.

Eating larger portions of fresh vegetables, especially green veggies is very healing.

Some of the darker greens include

  • kale
  • collards
  • spinach
  • dandelion
  • parsley
  • chard
  • mustard greens

If you have trouble digesting salads and raw vegetables, you could put them in a blender or juicer. As times goes on and your digestive system strengthens, it may be possible for you to take raw veggies easier.

Making a lot of leafy green soups is beneficial and green blender shakes.

Did you know your liver just loves those dark leafy greens?

Drinking Water

The general rule for the amount of pure water to drink in a day is to take your body weight in pounds divide by 2 and the answer is the number of ounces you should drink.

ie: 140 lb. person divided by 2 = 70 oz. of water. That's a little over 8 glasses of water per day.

Everyone cannot consume this much water, but water is very, very important.

Making the suggested dietary changes and taking herbal supplements will help you through any candida die off symptoms that you may experience.
