Systemic yeast

Submitted by Lynnp on Wed, 2009-07-08 14:45

Have a question - while taking the cpn protocol I've noticed that my systemic yeast has gotten worse.  I take Diflucan 100-200mg a day with everything else.  A year ago I used Amphotericin B nasal wash  off and on for about 3 years.  My sinus doc said I would probably have to stay on it.  I also start feeling really bad a day or two after it rains so the mold allergy I have adds an extra load to everything else.  I have found out through the years of 19 years of straight antibiotics for chronic sinusitis that the yeast problems seem to make or bring on the fibromyalgia.  I always feel worse in the spring, summer and fall because of the mold. 

 I am thinking about quitting the protocol after my first year is up and doubling up on Diflucan to see if this helps the sinus infections and mold allergies.  Has anyone else had systemic yeast for many years and what has helped you?  I know diet has a lot to do with it.  I eat less sugar than I used to and I can't drink any alcohol anymore because even one drink makes me feel yeasty and horrible.

Does anyone take something else for yeast?  I've tried Candex, I take probiotics, etc.  Is there another drug for yeast that might work better?

I also finished my 5th 5 day pulse last month and it was the first time I felt horrible during and after.  The mold/yeast load may have something to do with it since I feel bad during allergy season (which is almost year around here in Memphis).  My allergist told me to move to Alaska!    Lynn

Lynne, I had a lot of sinus problems from molds this Spring--it was wet and overcast here way into June. I like to use Olive Leaf extract for yeast. Recently did some reading about coconut oil for treating yeast and viral infections. Seems it raises Natural Killer cell activity. I take about 2-3 tsp a day. You can take up to 4 tablespoons a day. Give it a try. It tastes really great right off the spoon---natural unfiltered and unheated is best. Good luck, Raven PS: I just remembered that my doctor sent me this chart. Seems that high dose C can fight candida as well as allergies. Use the calcium ascorbate powder as it is easier on the stomach. We also use this method for toxins during Cpn treatment. It is called a vitamin C Flush.


In 1970, I discovered that the sicker a patient was, the more ascorbic acid he would tolerate by mouth before diarrhea was produced. At least 80% of adult patients will tolerate 10 to 15 grams of ascorbic acid fine crystals in 1/2 cup water divided into 4 doses per 24 hours without having diarrhea. The astonishing finding was that all patients, tolerant of ascorbic acid, can take greater amounts of the substance orally without having diarrhea when ill or under stress. This increased tolerance is somewhat proportional to the toxicity of the disease being treated. Tolerance is increased some by stress (e.g., anxiety, exercise, heat, cold, etc.)(see FIGURE I). Admittedly, increasing the frequency of doses increases tolerance perhaps to half again as much, but the tolerances of sometimes over 200 grams per 24 hours were totally unexpected. Representative doses taken by tolerant patients titrating their ascorbic acid intake between the relief of most symptoms and the production of diarrhea were as follows:


                               GRAMS ASCORBIC ACID      NUMBER OF DOSES

Raven, I take Vitamin C crystals in a glass of juice, about 5-6 grams a day.  Doc said to take 10 grams a day.  It really tears my stomach up if I go any higher.  ascorbic acid  is the same thing isn't it?

For yeast Artemisinin is also excellent.!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Wormwood has been used traditionally for treatment of fever in China for over two thousand years. It was not until the early 1970s that the potential for treating malaria was recognised and the active constituent artemesinin isolated by Chinese scientists.

Reasons For Use

Artemesia has become a popular alternative to conventional anti-malarial treatments, being effective but without the associated side-effects of anti-malarial drugs. Travellers abroad to malaria hot spots may prefer to take Artemesia as opposed to pharmaceutical anti-malaria treatments. 
Wormwood can help with the following: Image removed.Image removed.Image removed.Image removed.InfectionsImage removed.  Yeast / Candida Infection

Image removed.  Pinworm Infection
Image removed.  Giardiasis Infection Image removed.Image removed. Wormwood has antiprotozoal activity and is especially effective against giardia, but caution is advised as it can cause a worsening of symptoms and mild intestinal irritation initially. It may be used with other herbs known for their antiparasitic activity.

The most active ingredient, artemisinin, is a potent prooxidant whose activity is enhanced by polyunsaturated fats such as cod liver oil and antagonized by vitamin E. Artemisinin is used intravenously in Southeast Asia for the treatment of cerebral malaria; it has no known side-effects except for induction of abortion when used at high doses in pregnant animals.Image removed.Image removed.Image removed.Image removed.
