This article will discuss about anti-fungals and when to take them. This idea is based on the question from a friend of mine. She was wondering when the best time to take anti-fungals and probiotics is. Her candida, which she was just about on top of, has made a very unwelcome bid to return this week, and she needs a strategy to nip it in the bud before she goes back to square one.
She’s read in the various sources that anti-fungals should be taken with meals, immediately before meals, or between meals, and that probiotics should be taken as far away as possible from anti-fungals or an hour after them, so that they can fill the gaps left by newly-killed yeast. All of these differing opinions confused her, because all of them seem to make sense. She’s currently rotating GSE, garlic and caprylic acid.
Dealing with the above situations, some people said not to take probiotics till the yeast is under control, otherwise it is going to waste. Some doctors suggest that it is not advisable to take antibiotics and also antifungals at the same time because doing so could promote the resistance of fungal organisms against which no therapy would be effective.
If antibiotic therapy is necessary, it is advisable to subsequently do the anti-candida program for a month or more, but only after antibiotics is discontinued. Doctors recommend discontinuing antifungals if it is necessary to take an antibiotic. I believe the combination can promote the growth of Candida tropicalis. Probiotics has to be continued throughout.
