I don't know much, but from Razzle and Pirouette's posts, it seems that Nystatin only sticks to the gut - though, does a pretty good job of it, whereas Diflucan can has an effect everywhere.
So, if you think it's just in your tummy, the Nystatin should do. If you think it's everywhere, the Diflucan. Really, I believe it's best to use both.
As for the common question, I don't think you can cure it with diet alone, no. From my understanding, the diet's just a means of depriving the yeasties of food, fuel for growth, while you try and knock them down with antifungals (herbal and/or otherwise) as well as some high quality probiotics to try and repopulate with good flora (a good S. Boulardii sounds to be a must, as I believe it is a carnivore of the bad yeast, something like that) of the various supplements that are out there to assist in the process.
But, again, if I'm wrong, correct me, while they love the sugar, carbs, and some of 'um probably die off when you take these things away, I've read that they can survive off of anything. Not as well, maybe, but enough to stick around. Much like a lot of our other ailments around here, they are resilient.
You'll starve yourself away, trying to beat it with diet alone. This whole process can kill good flora too, which is why I mentioned the reflorastation with probiotics (pill form and/or ferments).
You'll want to make sure all your other detox pathways are as
open as possible, and that you are pooping - some of you are veterans here, so you know the importance of these things. I apologize.
Liver support is a must.
Good supplements, aside from what I mentioned already.
Molybdenum to help with the aldehydes from the die-off
Large doses of biotin (5000mcg) are supposed to be good for preventing the candida from going into its harder-to-kill form - "hyphae" or something.
You might want to consider a couple things to keep your gut in good shape - l-glutamine, a certain type of zinc, ginger, but also things like combining foods properly (Google improper food combining), chewing food thoroughly so there is less work for your tummy, less chance of heavier foods going through your intestines and stuff.
I found I have poor digestion, used to eat stuff like carrots that'd just come out the other side like they were brand new. Couldn't have been good for my lining.
Reminds me, maybe some digestive enzymes to just made sure all that food gets eaten up.
If you think you are fine in the digestion department though, guess you can ignore those.
Apart from that, I can't remember. I know there are more. Do a bit of looking, if you can.
Further apologies, if anyone else already knew some of this stuff.
Also, if this post is a mess. I gave up on looking nice after the first few parts.
edit: the cold body temperatures could literally be any of the things a lot of us deal with, sadly. any and all. :(
edit #2: I've heard that enemas are quite helpful as well - not just in terms of candida, but the infections as well. Coffee enemas for flushing the liver and probiotic enemas for putting that flora back up in there, as I've heard that only a percentage of the bacteria in the oral stuff makes it down there, and I am inclined to believe. There are enteric-coated products, but I don't trust much.
If you are brave enough to do these, please research and be careful - don't do too much. They can affect the flora as well, which is why the probiotic enemas come in.
I've done these things a few times, would like to do more, but I have other things that need working out and am just stretched too thin, otherwise I'd probably have good experiences to share about
them to encourage you to try. Maybe someday..
