Die-off symptoms vary greatly from person to person, so how will you recognize a candida die-off when it occurs? They usually start 2-5 days after the diet/dietary supplements start and last about 10 days. The symptoms include: feeling as if you’re getting worse yeast-related symptoms, flu-like symptoms, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, brain fog, concentration, and reminiscence.
The best way to alleviate die-off symptoms is to stick to the diet as much as possible, drink plenty of water with lemon juice, take enemas, and close the ileo cecal valve. This method is thoroughly described in the book “Candida.” The author suggests that the best way to alleviate die-off is to start the diet with garlic and Pau D’arco tea for one week (another name for Pau D’Arco tea is Taheeb).
A woman shares her experience with die-off, in which she drinks Emergen-C and eats and drinks calmly, such as broths or soups, so the abdomen can focus on getting the toxins out. Having ginger tea during die-off relieves the sinuses while also tasting good, aiding digestion, and warming you up on the inside. When her muscles were in severe pain, she would take numerous baths or lie down and relax. You can also listen to a good therapeutic tape that includes guided imagery or soothing music. Die-off is unpleasant payback, but once it’s done, it’s done, and you’ll feel much cleaner and better.
