When I started the Candida Cleanse, everyone talked about the toxins leaving your body and that I might get sick.....But believe me, no one told me how bad it can get or that I would think I might die. There were days when I didn't feel like curling my hair because my arms felt like lead pipes.
Sometimes I would feel great and then maybe an hour later, or the next day, I would feel like I was going to pass out, throw up, fall asleep or just lay down and die. I would get a headache that would not go away. Then came the dreded yeast infection and atheletes feet, lucky for me that only lasted one day. I never get yeast infections and it was almost the straw that broke the camels back.
I was ready many days to just give up and deal with the acid in my stomach and throat. Then, I thought....I am two weeks into this and the acid in my
stomach is feeling better, maybe I can tough it out.
The candida die off is not as severe as it was but I still feel crummy some days. Hopefully, the toxins are almost gone. I will keep you posted.

Just a couple of days ago, I think I had more die off. I was really sick to my stomach for about a day and then the next day I felt great. It was right after I switched to Grape Seed Extract so maybe by switching the antifungals it gives the candida a boot in the rear. Lets hope anyway.

I hardly ever get die off any more, but today I think I have a little. I switched my antifungals again and every time I do that I usually get a little crummy feeling.

For the most part, die off is a thing of the past. I have been dealing with many things brought on by the candida. I was told by an herbalist that I am still detoxing. Sometimes it can take 2 years to completely detox.
If you are going through die off symptoms, Please... don't worry... they will go away. I still have my days now and again but I am so much better. Curing yourself from candida and all the devastation it causes takes TIME....LOTS OF TIME.
If you have any questions, please ask them. I can only tell you my experience but maybe that will be enough to help you.
