How Do Antifungals Fight Candida?


Antifungals are Ineffective

Antifungals don’t fool Candida for long. There are even clinics that found they must use a complex system of rotating antifungals every few days so that the yeast overgrowth can’t adjust. The problem with these clinics is they are very expensive. You can easily spend $10,000 just to get started on one of their programs. There are also products where antifungals are mixed with beneficial herbs like aloe vera and mushrooms as though it’s a whole candida remedy in a capsule. Antifungals can never be effective because the fungus in your gut adjusts to them. This is true whether the antifungals are natural or chemical pharmaceuticals.petridish.jpg

Chemical antifungals also are very hard on the liver and are being made in ever-stronger doses. One such product, at it’s inception, came out in 50mg tablets. It now comes in 200mg  tablets! (That trembling you hear is your liver running for cover!) Generic 150mg tablets of this pharmaceutical are around $24.55 each, dosage is one a day!

Topical “antifungal” creams will sometimes give temporary relief for vaginal discomfort but as you are not addressing the root of the problem the discomfort will return soon after you stop using the product. (FYI, coconut oil works just as well topically with no bad side-effects.)

One other type of antifungal is colloidal silver. This is a solution in which silver is suspended in water. Colloidal silver is an interesting product that has many uses. Topically it can help with nail fungus if you have enough of it to soak your nails every day. Internally it does not live up to its claims. We own an advanced silver “micro-generator” and make our own micro-particle colloidal silver for testing against Candida and for other uses. We had a customer who got to the point where he could drink this high-quality colloidal silver in quantities of 6 to 8 ounces a day but it would not control his Candida (which he later did with Threelac). That was our experience with it too. Antifungals work only if the Candida infestation is very new and very weak. By the time most people’s symptoms would have gotten bad enough that they go searching on the internet for a cure… it’s too late.

With a name like anti-fungal you’d think this would be the just the thing to fight Candida yeast overgrowth, but they are the weakest way to fight Candida infections.

If you do wish to try antifungals we suggest you get several good varieties and rotate them every 4 to 7 days.

You CAN heal from Candida.
