If you are using Grapefruit seed extract for candida, here's the formula that worked for me.
The extract MUST be organic, AND without alcohol... Non organic versions do not cover the full spectrum of anti-fungal/biotic/parasitic properties... on average it is 70% less effective.
15 drops 3 x a day 20mins before food.
standard anti candida diet for 2 weeks, strictly.
the next 2 weeks, 3 days on the diet, 1 day off
the next week, 2 days on, 1 day off
final week, 1 day on, 1 day off.
After you're clear, for maintenence, take 10 drops first thing am, and 5 drops last thing pm and have 1 strict anti-candida diet day every week, but really try to keep your daily diet alkaline. As candida thrives in an acid environment.
I had a very bad case of Candida last winter. It was extremely harsh. My crotch and butt were itchy and sometimes burned, my mood was agitated, I was suffering from insomnia. To finally get rid of the ailment, I went on a sugar-free diet and took some medication from my doctor. This was great. It killed all the candida within days. My problem then became a severe flu, as my body was not getting rid of the dead candida fast enough. My body was basically experiencing toxic shock. I took tons of fiber, drank gallons of water over several days. This finally made me feel better. Now, I just take Grapefruit seed extract in water every few days to keep the candida at bay. It is very effective at eliminating candida after it has set in as well, but you should take a diuretic to get the dead candida out of you. For candida, take 5-6 drops of GSE in 20oz of water. Drink in one sitting. Do this once each day for 3 days. May cause heartburn. If so, water down the dosage or use fewer drops (3-4).
