Die-off symptoms are many and vary greatly from person to person, so how will you recognize the candida die off when it occurs? Generally, they begin 2-5 days after the diet/supplements are started and they last for about 10 days. The symptoms include: feeling as if you’re getting worse yeast-related symptoms, flu-like feeling, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, brain fog, concentration and memory loss, muscle and joint pain, tightness in chest with palpitations, a feeling of having a film over the eyes, eye irritation and feeling of drunkenness.
The best way to alleviate die-off symptoms is to stick to the diet as much as possible, drink plenty of water with lemon juice, take enemas, closing the ileo cecal valve. This technique is described in detail in the book, “Candida”. The author suggests the best way to alleviate die-off is to start the diet one week with garlic and Pau D’arco tea (another name for Pau D’Arco tea is Taheebo tea) and then start the Caprylic acid the next week, building the dosage to full dose after 16 more days.
A woman shares her experience during die-off where she would drink Emergen-C and eats and drink very lightly, like broths or soups, so the stomach can focus on getting the toxins out. It is also relieving the sinuses to have ginger tea during die-off, and at the same time tastes good, helps the stomach digest and warms you up inside. Whenever her muscles hurt badly, she would take lots of baths or lie down and take rest. You can also put on some good healing tape with guided imagery or soothing music. Die-off is like an unpleasant payback, but once it’s out, it’s out and you will feel cleaner and better.
