This is my first post in the Fibromyalgia,I have severe Fibro ,I was told it comes from chronic Lyme but I can relate more with this group than Lyme group! So I was wondering if anyone had tried a yeast protocol, I was told by a alternative doc that yeast maybe causing all my symptoms! I take
Nystatin powder and
amphotericin B

Hi, Sick, and welcome!  Well, I have had fibromyalgia for 22 years and I do not have Lyme.  So, that information, at least for me, isn't accurate.  I know you can have both...just like you can have fibro and lupus and other illnesses. 

This has been my experience with yeast.  I did a lot of reading about yeast several years ago and, of course, they made it sound like everything you have wrong with you is caused by yeast.  I bought an expensive probiotic that was supposed take care of that and I took it for nearly a year and there wasn't one single change in me so I don't use that stuff anymore. 

I take malic acid/magnesium supplements and they have helped me with pain and fatigue.  Also, many with fibro are deficient in these vitamins and nutrients.  They also can be deficient in vitamin D3.  I have to take 3,500 IU of D3 a day to keep me in the low normal range. 

Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the first thread on the forum.  There are links to good information about fibro, including links about malic acid/magnesium supplements and how they work in your body and also about vitamin D deficiency.  It may help you some.

I'm so glad you popped over to our forum.  Don't hesitate to ask questions.  We are here to help you!  I hope to hear more from you soon.

Hi Lyme,
    If you want a help for yeast, acidephollis is good. For a great help try USNEA. It took me 7 herbal books before I
found it. It's fermented litchen from the oak tree. It works for candida, yeast and trich infections. I drank city water and
had a severe trich infection which was eating my insides and making my C-section scar ooze. This is really fantastic and cleared it up fast. It works better than flagyl or nystatin and won't hurt you like the meds. It's the only herbal that
I can't find in pill form, it's a tincture that you mix with water.
     Good luck with your yeast problem. I've been there, done that for the last 30 years off and on.

Hi ladies,

In treating candida, you will need to be on a sugar free low carb. diet for at least a month, otherwise you are just feeding the yeast while you try to kill it. Maybe you already know that, but just thought I'd mention it. :0) Also, it's important to rotate the treatment - in this case nystatin, or whatever you are using to kill the yeast - rotate after 3 months with something else if you will be on this protocol for a while. The yeast can become 'immune' to the antibiotic after a time. Acidophilus while helpful isn't normally enough to treat candida without both diet and some other protocol. It's only one piece of the healing puzzle.

Some have made the connection between yeast and fibro. and yeast and lyme and other illnesses. I don't think it is the only factor with fibro. in most cases, but I do know that when I follow a strict candida diet it helped a lot. I still follow a less strict version and take acidophilus pretty regularly. My doctor said in his experience a candida protocol will help some with fibro., but not others. I've heard several stories though of it helping.

Hey NM, thanks for the tip. I had actually just been wondering the past couple days what I could try to treat candida besides antifungals as I find them much too hard on my body. So I will look into your suggestion! I also just bought a form of bio-sil and this is my second day on that. Will see how that goes, and still want to check into the SuperCissus also. I have passed this info. on since you posted it, so hopefully others can be helped by these products too!

Hi Sherrine, I have read several of your posts lately and they have been very helpful. And also your post on vitamin D reminded me to get some of that to take. I am really happy to hear it seems to be helping you.

Take care everyone, manyembers

The yeast cures did not work for me either. I only have fibro not lyme.

   I've been on the malic acid, boi-sil and super cissus rx trio for 4 months now. I've only had 1 major flare, which
lasted for a day. I went swimming and the water was too cool and sent my body into shock that night. I did some
major drugs that night and nothing touched the pain. I was ok the next day other than being tired from no sleep.
The first couple of months I did have to supplement with reg painkillers while the mix worked to fix a lot of the
damage. I've been messed up for 48 years so it isn't going to correct overnight. Just the difference in sleep
patterns and mood is amazing. I'm doing better than I was 10 years ago. I also noticed my bone spurs are disolving.
     I'm glad you'll look into usnea. Most shops have never heard of it, I lucked out and got a good one. I do a
lot of research into herbs and try to find alternates for most things now.

grapefruit seed extract is good against yeast. It's not a pro or prebiotic but a natural antibiotic and anti-fungal. I love the stuff personally.

welcome from another newb.

Squarejane, that is an ingenius signature - the little j with the box around it. Very cute! I took GSE a few years back and the blackheads on my nose cleared up and havn't been back! It addresses a whole lot of stuff doesn't it!

NM - I am learning so much from your posts! I'm so glad you are sharing your vast knowledge. I just recommended the bio-sil and supercissus to another friend today as well.
It sounds like you are finding your way along really well too. I told my hubby about your 12 hour shifts and we shared an 'awe' moment together. lol! Hope you continue to have great success with the herbs and supplements!

take care,
