Has anyone experience or heard of using d-mannose to cure candida? My daughter has had a bad case for a year now (along with CFS for 2 years). Last week she had what we thought was a urinary tract infection so we gave her d-mannose five times a day for four days. She has been on the anti-candida diet too. Her urinary tract symptoms cleared up in a few days. She came off the diet and has been eating foods like potatoes, bread, and corn the past three days and has not had the usual candida symptoms (stomache pain, bloating, gas, diahrea). We have tried prescription and medical antifungals but the candida always came roaring back and the die off was pretty bad. With the d-mannose there was no die off.
