 Candida—Eliminating Yeast/Fungal Overgrowth 
The following is one in an ongoing series of columns entitled From Fatigued to Fantastic by . View all columns in series

When you treat the yeast as we'll discuss, not only does the CFS/FMS usually improve, but the sinusitis and spastic colon will often go away as well. As fringe benefits, most of you will find (if you take the Diflucan medication part of the treatment) that your dandruff and feeling like you want to stick your finger in your ear to scratch it will also go away!

How do I Treat the Candida/Yeast?

It takes around 3-5 months to restore balance between the healthy bacteria and the yeast in your body, but most people will be feeling better at ~ 1 month into using the prescription antifungal "Diflucan." Here is your "recipe" for treating the yeast:

1. Begin by avoiding sugar (I will add the magic words "except for dark chocolate," which is a healthy food in moderation). Sugar feeds yeast, so substitute stevia, a healthy natural sweetener.
2. Take healthy bacteria (probiotics) to fight the yeast. I recommend Probiotic Pearls or Acidophilus Pearls 2 twice a day for 3-5 months.
3. At the same time, begin the herbal antifungal mix "Anti-Yeast" 2 twice a day for 3-5 months.
4. After 1 month on the above, add the medication Diflucan 200 mg a day for 6-12 weeks (get the generic form fluconazole. The brand name is $600 for 6 weeks. The generic is available for only $40 for 42 tablets at Consumers Discount Pharmacy, phone 323-461-3606).
