Should I take antifungal supplement for candida treatment?

I’ve got a question here. Why would I need to take an antifungal dietary supplement for Candida?

Well, that’s quite simple. You don’t need to take one at all. If you do everything perfectly, if you eat the right kind of foods, you abstain from all alcohol, most refined carbohydrates, all fruits, and quite a lot of different foods for probably six to nine months, if you live a very low-stress lifestyle, you get eight hours of sleep, drink plenty of water, if you do everything premium, you probably would not need to take an antifungal.

But here’s the crunch. Nobody does that. The fact that you’re looking at this video today, it might be 11 o’clock at night, might be 1 a.m., it could be on your mobile phone any time of the day, it could be why you’re eating something right now in distress. The thing is we don’t live naturally balanced lives. We live in the 21st century. We need to have some kind of support. We all like to get things done quickly and efficiently and that’s why we take an antifungal.

Antifungals help us to overcome Candida yeast infections much more rapidly than if we didn’t take them, and more effectively. They help to balance our bowel flora as well. They help us to eradicate lots of different types of bacteria, not just Candida, so taking an antifungal for three to six months makes a lot of sense. You don’t need to take a lot of quality antifungals; you just need to take a small amount. Once or twice a day, three times per day. You can lead up to that after 14 days, so I generally get people to start taking an antifungal maybe two tablets a day for a little while and then build up to three a day and generally just for a period of about four to six weeks.

Good idea to take an antifungal when you come back from holiday, for example. Say you’ve been on a cruise or you’ve been on a holiday somewhere, whether it’s to the Caribbean or Mexico or South America or even Paris or Germany or New Zealand where I live. If you’ve traveled and you’ve eaten different kinds of food and been under travel stress, it can shift the microbial balance. A good time to take an antifungal.

If you’ve been through a lot of work stress or bankruptcy or divorce, this can lower your immunity. Good time to take an antifungal. So, yes, it does make sense to take an antifungal from time to time because Candida overgrowth is rampant. Many of us eat too much foods and consume beverages containing sugars. Many of us take various medication or eat poultry or chicken with antibiotics in it. Many women take the pill. Many guys drink too much beer. We get a lot of microbial imbalances, and particularly with stress, we increase our susceptibility to yeast infection.

I believe that everybody will benefit from a good antifungal supplement once or twice per year. It can really help to keep your digestive system in good shape.

I hope that answers the question on the antifungal medication because I think it is very beneficial, and it’s going to help you. Not just for Candida, but just for overall gut health as well.

Thanks for tuning in.
