    Hi all,
    Has anyone had success with taking Chitin inhibitors to decrease Candida?
    I go to a holistic doctor that feels Candida/biofilms are responsible for much of my turmoil.
    I don't think that's the whole issue, but I want to do everything I can to help! I do the diet (although it is hard when digestion is compromised, to be digesting all of these non-carbs), I take a lot of natural antifungals, Nystatin powder, probiotics.
    He really recommends these Chitin inhibitors and I wanted to know if anyone here has tried it out, or has truly beat Candida in other ways?
    Thank you kindly : )

    I did two rounds of Lufenuron and I believe it helped, but I also took diflucan between the two rounds as well as A-Fung.

    The best I can tell you is that it felt friendly to me, and I feel it as an ally.
    One thing though: I forgot during the final two week period in which it is being released from the tissues and ate some raw saurkraut I had been fine with before and had a very strong reaction to it. So I'd stay away from any fungal/yeasty foods for a while after just to be sure.

    I also found that the brain fog from the die off (which was significant) was abated nicely by supplementing with molybdenum, and I took milkthistle due to the diflucan but I think it is nice to protect the liver anyway when asking it to cleanse for you.

    I took Lufenuron and Diflucan back to back, and it did nothing. Then I took resistant starch and everything changed.

    Do you take it as cooked cold potato, or potato starch, or how? I don't do well with potatoes. I admit I haven't read extensivley on the subject though.:redface:

    I take the raw unmodified starch 4tbsp a day w/ probiotics. It's important to get enough. Just read my Resistant Starch guide, instructions are all in there.
