    Does anyone have a good summary of how to treat intestinal overgrowth of Candida using prescription medications, as well as changes in diet and supplements? Thanks!

    I'm currently on the paleo/candida diet and taking nystatin for 20 days, then planning about a week of Diflucan. And maybe a another month of nystatin after that (will see how I feel)...

    I'm not taking any supplements other than my multi

    Its too soon to say if its all working...

    Is it true that, on a day-to-day basis, the anti-fungal agents need to be rotated so that the Candida does not build up a tolerance?

    Also, does anyone have experience with Dr. Karschian in San Francisco?

    That wasn't the case for me. However my ME symptoms never improved on anti-candida meds or diet so that may be why. The obvious external fungal infections dis improve however so that makes me think I was doing the right thing but don't know.
