So, I've been off abx since Oct '09 due to the wonderful Cold Laser and I'm cleaning up my system.

My adrenals had been adressed, but yet I wasn't feeling 100%. After a week of Diflucan and Nystatin, my energy is back, and I am praying it is the missing piece to this Lyme/Bart fiasco.

So, after a month of this treatment, will I still have to watch yeast because I was on abx for 2.5 yrs? Also, will it take longer than a month to clear yeast.

I am energetically tested every month for supps to see what my body needs.

I would continue your diet and watch for yeast for at least another year. I've been off abx for 5 1/2 yrs now and I still have to watch my diet and take probiotics.

Probiotics are good for us anyway, so that is good.

I've been here preaching yeast because I've always said that you WON'T KNOW WHEN IT'S TIME TO STOP MEDS FOR LYME IF YOU STILL HAVE YEAST!!

The symptoms overlap too much!!!

Candida diet and elimination:

Lyme symptoms list compared with yeast symptoms

--------

DIET, DIET, DIET is the key. Then, be sure to follow the 5 step plan outlined below. It was developed by my naturopath. It works.

"Successful control and elminiation of a Candida Albicans overgrowth requires a multifaceted program as described below. Failure to follow ALL the steps simultaneously will result in slow progress and will lengthen healing time significantly. The program should be tailored to the individual and must balance the need to eliminate the Candida and deprive it of its food source while insuring proper nutrition for the individual."

Five Steps to Candida Elimination:

1. You must starve it into submission by eliminating its food source.


2. You must kill it with anti-fungal herbs and supplements. [e.g....garlic, onion, caprylic acid, Pau D'Arco capsules or tea, clove, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf extract, oil of oregano, tea tree oil, Echinacea, Goldenseal, black walnut, MSM, barberry root, uva ursi, neem leaf, biotin]

3. You must reestablish the proper balance and quantity of probiotic bacteria in the digestive tract. [...multi-strain lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus capsules with FOS should be taken between meals to maximize repopulation of the digestive tract by beneficial bacteria.]

4. You must reestablish proper levels of all B vitamins (yeast free) and utilize other immune enhancing supplements to boost immune system function. [e.g ... B complex vitamins (yeast free), biotin, beta 1-3 glucan, colostrum, maitake mushroom, vitamins A, C, E, zinc and selenium]

5. You must cleanse and heal the digestive tract to promote proper elimination of toxins and Candida and assimilation of nutrients. [e.g...chlorophyll, MSM, omega 3 fatty acids found in flax seed and salmon oils, GLA found in borage, evening primrose and black currant oils. Pantothenic acid, digestive enzymes between meals]

++++++++++

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR SUCCESS!!!

What lymetoo said sounds great!

Never, never stop taking probitiotics. We all need them even when we are healthy.

NO wildly restrictive diet to "starve" it. And keep starving it.

Wtl, it has been long journey. I wish you well on yours.

Lymetoo, I agree with the overlapping of symptoms, how would you tell the difference?

I am following a good diet with no sugar period, with that said, there are some more things I could cut out.

I am taking my probiotics and will take those for the rest of my life!

Massman, thanks for the link. What do you think is special about this book, there are so many out there. I know you know your stuff, I was just curious.

I make kefir at home - www.kefirlady.com is where I got my grains. I also make kombucha and fermented vegetables (sauerkraut). They help a lot with the gut. Considering how much of our immune system is in our gut and how important good digestion is, I don't think you can work on healing your gut too much! I'm still working on healing mine. Off abx now for three months short of two years.

I looked through that site, six.
Wow, those little goats are cute!

I'm just starting with Kefir, and have been making it from the powdered starter for a week.
Yum, it tastes like cultured buttermilk.

I'm using regular whole milk from the store.
I'm using half the recommended amount of starter to reduce the cost, and getting good results.

I'm also experimenting with using a cup of the kefir and adding three cups of milk, to make the next quart of it.

Since the milk has been pasteurized, I tried just heating it to 77 degrees, before adding the starter.
This shortcut saves alot of time.
However, if the equipment is not clean, renegade bacteria can take hold, messing up the results.
