I suggest stopping the candibactin. There are other options that are not as caustic as such essentials oils can be to some people, even in gel caps.

You may not have enough food in your stomach to buffer the effects but even with a good meal, I could never tolerate such things, no matter how good the gel coating.

Olive Leaf Extract was successful over candida for me, though. And kind to stomach.

Reflux can be very painful and serious. Best to avoid anything - anything - that adds to that.

CandiBactin-AR® features concentrated essential oils from red thyme and oregano blended with other herbal extracts from the aromatic mint family. . . .

. . . If you experience gastrointestinal discomfort or heartburn (reflux), please DISCONTINUE use . . .

Reflux can be tied to high OXALATE foods, among other things.

Oxalate crystals are like tiny long sharp needles that can penetrate our gut lining and cause leaky gut, etc.

You may not know or be able to control all the factors yet you may see good relief by avoiding as much oxalate content from foods (in vegetables and some fruits).

Magnesium CITRATE helps bind and move out some oxalates yet that's not enough unless the consumption is also lowered.

For starters, best to cut out totally: spinach; almonds and anything from almonds.

I hate to complicate things (really I do) but it may also be important to your gut to lower LECTINS (can't avoid them all, though).

Lectins are highest in beans, nuts and grains.

There are lists for both Low-Lectin and Low-Oxalate diets but it can take a while to figure out what food can be both.

Avocados, my dear, as best I can determine seem to be in that group. And they are excellent in so many ways. All the lists out there vary and confuse. Below are the top places to begin.

First, Facebook search: "Trying Low Oxalates" Susan+Owens

Then, YouTube search:

"Elliot Overton" Oxalates

"Sally K. Norton" Oxalates

"Dr. Paul Mason" Lectins


One step at at time, still be sure to eat enough food. There's no way to figure this all out at once. Taking a few steps while you learn more can still help you feel better.

Good luck & take care.
