combining crushed garlic with the bentonite and psyllium?


I'm currently pregnant (2nd trimester) and therefore a little cautious of using the phase I products... however, my husband will be starting them soon, and I wanted to participate in the purge drink in solidarity!  And although I don't have any major yeast overgrowth symptoms, I have had problems in the past (including nipple thrush with breastfeeding my firstborn).

So, I wouldn't mind a little yeast-killing action, but I want to be careful not to overdo it so as not to potentially overload my body with toxins from any die-off. My question is, would adding crushed garlic to the purge (minus the Capryl) have a more mild, but still positive, effect? Alternatively, would doing just a half-dose of the Capryl for 1-2 months be gentle enough, yet still be effective?

Hi there Georgianna,

It looks like you posted this when noone was moderating. Hopefully you've had a healthy baby by now and are all through the candida issue. If so, you may not need any candida treatment now but I don't like to leave posts unanswered.

Having said this, I don't have a definitive answer. I don't know if fresh garlic is more mild than Caproyl or not. We've had a lot of experience using these products and know their strength and how they compare to other but not to other approaches. 

I hope you're doing well and that this is no longer an issue for you. If it is still an issue and there is some way I may be able to help, please do let me know.

Take good care,
