No problem, I hope you've found something of use during your reading here at EiR? I've seen some good studies that found bayberry extracts to be a good anti-fungal so drinking bayberry bark tea certainly seems like a good thing to include in your daily regime. Sticking to a low carb diet tends to get easier as you go along in my experience. I've been doing it for so long I find I don't crave sugary or starchy foods any longer and am actually put off by them! Diet is key to minimise fermentation and related symptoms/damage while you tackle gut dysbiosis directly so I hope you find a way to make it work for you.

I look forward to reading about some of the other things that have helped you and I'm sure other members and visitors to the site will appreciate you sharing also!

Thanks Maff...already made a start reading. Lots to take in. At some point I'll share some things that have helped me... mostly herbs made into teas like bayberry bark which i endeavour to drink throughout the day... sticking to the right foods is my biggest issue. .. at the moment I'm in a bad way as it seems ALL food I consume brings it on.

Anyway I'm going to read some more... appreciate your support on here!

Hi Alchemiss, welcome to EiR and thanks for the compliment! The herbs in this study were rather unusual/unconventional in the treatment of Candida/yeast infections - most likely why the scientists felt them worthy of study.
The only one I've tried personally is fenugreek and it did indeed produce my typical herxheimer reaction symptoms. I find rotating clove, peppermint and oregano to be a potent herbal approach for my gut yeast overgrowth. I do struggle to maintain due to unbearable nervous system-related die-off symptoms however, as you may read in my accounts on the site if you dig a little deeper (which I hope you will)!
All the best.

I've just come across your site Maff, and the great work you're doing.

It's hard to know where to begin reading... But I wonder if anyone has tried any of the above herbal remedies??
