Candida Question #36 Do I need Dietary Supplements? Isn’t Diet Enough?

Do I need dietary supplements? I thought diet was sufficient to help me conquer my yeast infection.

In Section 1 in Chapter 7 of my book, Candida Crusher, there’s about 160 pages worth of diet and nutrition information, and I outline the importance of why diet and nutrition is important but also explain about dietary supplements. In Section 4 of that chapter, however, I go into much more detail about specialized food as well as dietary supplements.

While dietary supplements are not absolutely necessary for you to get rid of a yeast infection, what you will find is they will help you to speed up your recovery considerably. And in many cases of chronic yeast infection, I find them necessary to help you to have a deep-seated recovery from your yeast infection, which you may have had for many years. So while they are not absolutely necessary, they’re of enormous help. And when used carefully and judiciously along with a carefully controlled diet and a healthy balanced lifestyle, they will help you permanently overcome your yeast infection.

How long do you take the supplements for?

To answer that question it depends on how much need you have for them and my recommendations are to stop taking supplements when you no longer have benefits from them. And in some cases that could be three to four months. In other cases, it could be one to two years. So there’s no real clearly defined time for you to stop taking the products.

So I’ve developed certain products and carefully chosen nutrients based on my experience. And after having used hundreds of different types of yeast infection products in my clinic over many years, I’ve come to the conclusion that certain specific nutrients and herbs are paramount in helping you to fully and deeply recover from a yeast infection.

You can read a lot more of those in Chapter 7, Section 4 of the book, Candida Crusher. I’ll explain a little bit more about different types of supplements and nutrients in other frequently asked questions.
