I am wondering if anyone has gone through the process of eliminating candida from their body and what the experience with doing this was. I am currently taking NFH Candida SAP (anti-fungal) along with a 60 Billion culture probiotic and am on day 4. I have noticed that my derealization is significantly worse. I feel completely spaced out and everything looks so strange which is rather scary.
Derealization has always been the biggest source of my anxiety and panic and now with it being much worse I don't even want to leave the house. Up until today I was starting the SAP by taking once capsule in the morning (9am ish) and a second around dinner (6pm ish). Today I took my initial dose at 9am and then I took the second dose at 1:45pm and within about 45 minutes things started to feel worse with relation to derealization. I am suppose to take another dose again tonight at dinner but really don't want to at this point given I already feel this bad. The goal that the Naturopath suggested was to get to 6 a day over the course of a week. This is not fun and I can feel the panic building inside of myself.
Has anyone else gone through this process?
From what I remember in researching this, the initial period is known as the 'die off' period of the candida and can cause some unpleasant side effects. You also may be experiencing unpleasant effects due to the diet change. I would say your Naturopath should be familiar with this as well. I'll look into it some more and try to get back to you with some candida site forum links in which others were experiencing the same.
