How long does my candida program need to be?

Length of Program 

 There are multiple health, constitution, lifestyle and diet related considerations that all affect how long it will take you to find better health. They are listed and summarized below.

Duration and Severity of Illness

The length of time you’ve had the condition as well as the severity of your condition will influence how challenging your journey to wellness will be.  

Other Health Challenges

Related and unrelated health or toxicity issues.

In some cases, clearing out the candida allows the body to “get a grip” on other lingering conditions and profound healing experiences are possible. However, if you have a health condition, (i.e. organ imbalance, nutritional deficiency, disease condition, toxicity issue etc) this may slow your recovery from CRC. 

Food Therapy Success

Your success in finding a healthy, hypo-allergic diet that is appropriate for you will greatly affect your healing and candida detoxification process. 

Environmental Health

Your air quality,  electromagnetic environment, level of natural light, and noise exposure all impact your bodies natural healing functions thus the more peaceful and natural your indoor environment can be, the faster you will recover.

Emotional Health

Your "thought diets" and our mental/emotional states affect our healing as much as all other holistic aspects of health. Those who work on creating healthier thoughts and who devote time to contemplative practices like meditation, are likely to heal faster. "Vitamin F" (Fun) and "Vitamin L"  (Love) are very important nutrients to help us achieve balanced emotional life, as is a sense of engagement with our purpose. 

Healing Times

Once we learn how to manage the die off process and establish a healing diet that suits our needs, most people will enjoy a dramatic reduction in symptoms within a few weeks of following the program.

Those with mild candida overgrowth that has not progressed to the fungal, CRC, can easily well enjoy a complete recovery in the first three to six months if not sooner. 

For those with moderate CRC, a full recovery can take several monthsSerious CRC with multiple organ imbalances can require an intensive diet and lifestyle treatment approach for as long as two years and then continued self care to the extent necessary to prevent a reoccurrence. For moderate or severe CRC, the supervision of a primary care health practitioner is recommended if possible.


Eventually as you continue to offer yourself your very best health care and self-care, your mood and energy and health will become more reliable. You’ll look brighter and think more clearly and you’ll be able to sustain your health with less effort than when you were in the midst of treatment.

Die Off

It's possible that you may be feeling an increase in die off symptoms as this is an expected phenomenon when killing off yeast.  

If you don't see improvement...

If yeast and or fungal overgrowth is a major contributor to your health problems, this program should offer you benefits. However, the process of cleansing and healing takes time. You'll want to give yourself at least several weeks to integrate full program protocol into your life.. 

Once you've established a healthy, hypo-allergenic food therapy and have been following both this AND the product protocol for four full weeks, and if you've learned how to modulate the die off symptoms and take the appropriate amount of product for you, you can expect to be aware of significant changes in your health.

If it happens that you have accomplished this yet you feel no change either way, you may wish to consult with your health professional to make sure there are not other problems at play.
