One of the unfortunate things about returning to heath after a systemic Candida infection is the die off symptoms that can result from the Candida yeast cells dying quickly.
This overloads the body with toxins from this sudden die off.
Your body needs time to eliminate all of these dead micro-organisms and during this process some pretty uncomfortable symptoms can result.
Possible Candida Die Off Symptoms
- gas & bloating
- a foggy head
- sore throat
- heightened anger reactions
- joint and muscle pain
- general malaise
- sweating and chills
- skin breakouts
What Can Be Done?
Sometimes people begin to feel worse after they start a Candida albicans diet than they did when eating regularly.
When this happens people are tempted to give up, thinking that the diet isn’t working, however, it’s important to keep steady to the course if long lasting yeast infection relief is desired.
Here are some things that can be done to help lessen the severity of Candida die off symptoms.
- Start Supplements Slowly
Some are tempted to start the diet and take a lot of the recommended supplements ( such as olive leaf) right from the beginning in hopes of fast results. This isn’t wise as the body needs time to handle the candida die off. Take small doses of the supplements in the beginning and then gradually increase to the full dose.
- Drink Plenty of Water
Water helps your body flush out toxins, so staying well hydrated will help your body deal with all of the dead Candida cells that are stressing your body’s systems.
Besides, your lungs, colon, kidneys, and liver, your skin is an amazing detoxifying organ. Sweating several times a day can help your body flush the Candida die off toxins out of your body quicker. You can use exercise, saunas, a jacuzzi, steam rooms, and hot baths to accomplish this.
Yeast Die Off is Temporary
With a little patience and using some of these tips, Candida die off symptoms don’t have to be the deal breaker when it comes to living free from Candida overgrowth.
Remember also that for many years your body has adapted to having the Candida cells living inside it, so it will take some time for your body to adapt to being Candida albicans free, but when it finally is, you won’t believe how better you will feel.
