I've been on a thrush-fighting diet for one week now and the
yeast apparently is feeling no pain. If I miss taking at least 6 Caprylic acid capsules a day it come roaring back in all its glory. You'd think virtually no carbohydrates and no yeast sources plus CapryliCare from Whole Foods would have beat it into submission now, but no.
I guess since it's surrounded by breast milk, it's got no problem.
I am determined that this is the year that I get rid of it.
I've tried Nystatin, Diflucan, gentian violet, GSE externally and internally and caprylic acid/pau d'arco/goldthread root, apple cider vinegar breast rinses, washing the laundry with vinegar, soaking my bra in a GSE rinse and painting my breast with kefir. I only wear a bra when I go out in public now and take it off immediately when I get home, because the more I wear one, the worse the thrush is. I also am taking Culturelle, though it's been hard recently to space it right between all the antifungals I'm taking.
I haven't had any smoked foods or cheese or nuts or mushrooms in the last three days. I have, however, had butter. Should I be cutting that out too? I don't drink any coffee or tea, am using no herbs, consume no alcohol. I'm down to eating pretty much nothing but meat, fish, eggs, Udo's oil and chicken broth. I've had spinach, too, but I'm afraid of ingesting enough carbohydrates to give the thrush more to work with.
Am I ever going to get rid of this monster before my son stops nursing???
How long do I have to wait between taking an antifungal and a probiotic?
Any and all help deeply appreciated.
