hi. it's also my first time on candigone (chronic thrush in my mouth). i started it 5 or 6 days ago. the first few days i had bad die-off symptoms, but i introduced a probiotic (bio-k) and that seems to have helped. the symptoms wore off before i could start a fiber supplement (i read here that fiber supplement also good to help with die-off. i have stayed on the half dose as i am only about 110 pounds. should i go up to the full dose? also, for the last two days i have been having horrific allergies – particularly really bad mouth itching. could that be one of the die-off symptoms? if so, any thoughts on how to alleviate it? thanks for the help. dana

You should be fine increasing the dosage to full strength after the third day, and then you can always reduce the dose if need be should you have any adverse effects. You may also benefit from taking a daily probiotic supplement such as Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support 50 Billion for ongoing support to promote healthy yeast/bacteria levels in the urogenital tract, and we also have a new product, 7-day Rapid Yeast Relief, made especially for women to target yeast overgrowth and help balance vaginal and urinary tract flora.
With regard to diet, it is not surprising that your symptoms returned once you completed the fast. We recommend following a healthful, everyday Yeast Cleansing Diet for as long as you are able, and then significantly limiting your sugar intake long term to help prevent yeast overgrowth (since yeast feed on sugar). Remember also to drink plenty of water—at least half your body weight in ounces every day. Good luck and happy cleansing!
I just started the Candigone cleanse yesterday. The instructions say to stay at the half dose if you are under 150 or if it is your first cleanse. I weigh 157 and this is my first cleanse. I'm wondering if I should continue at the half strength dose or up it to full strength after the 3rd day. I've had issues with recurrent yeast infections over several years. After doing some research I think I may have an issue with systemic yeast problems. (I completed a Daniel fast (no meat, bread, or sugar) a couple of months ago and noticed a lot of my symptoms disappeared. Upon returning to my previous diet, symptoms started appearing again, especially after eating dairy or sweets.
Should I stay at half strength or try full strength?
