Candida die off occurs when you begin to treat your candida symptoms.
The die off can cause you to experience some candida detox symptoms before you actually start feeling better.
You are probably aware that Candida albicans is the result of an overgrowth of yeast in the body.
An overgrowth of yeast/candida occurs when the bad bacteria (unfriendly bacteria) gets the upper hand and starts to colonize and overpopulate.
If you don't have enough of the good bacteria (friendly bacteria) to combat the 'unfriendlies,' you end up with a candida yeast infection.
When you begin treating your symptoms naturally by starting a candida diet and taking quality probiotics like Florafood® and the other recommended supplements for a candida cure, the invading yeast fungus starts dying off, sometimes quite rapidly if you are being very strict.
This dying off of the invading yeast results in you having a lot of dead microbes in your system all at one time. Your body tries to get rid of these toxins as quickly as possible through fecal matter and urine, but may have difficulty processing it quick enough.
You could very well end up experiencing a 'healing crisis' that includes candida detox symptoms.
Don't be alarmed if you start feeling worse for a couple of days with gas, bloating, headaches, or other allergy like symptoms. That's just your body doing its job. It's actually a good sign that you are getting the yeast infection under control.
Candida die off and the resulting healing crisis were identified by two German doctors, Karl Herxheimer, M.D., and Adolf Jarish, M.D. Because of their research, this 'healing crisis' is often referred to as The Herxheimer Reaction.
Don't be discouraged or give up on your regime. Just hang in there and know that the candidiasis die off symptoms will pass, and that you are on the road to recovery.
To your good health!
