Candida of the Esophagus
I had an endoscopy done and candida of the esophagus was found. I had an HIV test in December and it was negative.
I have taken antibiotics a lot this year, and I've taken the generic brand of Diflucan.
What should I do now? Will it heal?
I'm convinced that, yes, you can heal your Candida of the esophagus, but it won't heal on its own.
You're going to have to be diligent in faithfully giving your body what it needs to get rid of the fungal overgrowth and build up the good bacteria so that it is in control again.
Antibiotics are notorious for triggering a yeast infection overgrowth which is essentially what Candida is all about.
Normally your body's own immune system and friendly flora keep the natural candida in your system under control. But, when you take antibiotics, they will kill off your good bacteria while trying to do the job you sent them in to do. That gives the candida fungus a window of opportunity to take hold. Here's what I would suggest:
- Herbal Fiberblend - You'll need to thoroughly cleanse your system with this combination of herbs and fiber. The herbs are anti-fungal and anti-parasitic and the fiber will help to push out the dead and dying fungus more quickly so they don't create more toxins in your system.
I would take this twice per day for no less than 3 months. (Minimum of 3 pots of HFB)
- Florafood - You need to start out with 1 capsule 3x per day. After the first month, you can probably safely reduce to 1 capsule per day. This is a probiotic combination of three strains of good bacteria to replenish the friendly flora in your body to help fight off the yeast.
- Bear Paw Garlic - I would take 3 capsules per day for the first month (1 bottle). After that, you can use your own discretion. Bear Paw Garlic is anti-fungal and will give your body an extra immune boost against the candida of the esophagus.
- Garden Trio - This is not an absolute essential for getting rid of the esophageal Candida, but it will certainly give you an edge. The Garden Trio is 3 whole food supplement powders made from freshly juiced carrots, beets, and barley grass. It is high quality nutrition that will really help to support your immune system and healing.
Good nutrition is often one of the most overlooked ingredients when people are trying to heal from something. The body needs about 10x as much nutrition intake to heal as it does to maintain good health. This is an excellent tool in your nutritional arsenal.
Marie, I don't know your budget, but I would say that if you really want to get well, the first two items on the list are a MUST. You may be able to get rid of your yeast infection in your esophagus (and I'm guessing throughout your body) with that alone.
I don't know how severe your situation is, nor how long the overgrowth has been spreading. But, if you want the best shot of getting rid of the Candida of the esophagus more quickly, definitely consider the additional recommendations. They'll certainly make a difference.

Candida loves sugar! Cut back on your sugar intake as much as possible. Also, yeast feeding foods like most carbohydrates, so they need to be reduced for a little while, too.
Try to eat a little organic plain yogurt each day if you can. Don't get yogurt with sugar in it. If you must get flavored, fine, but stick with the organic yogurt in this case. Yogurt also has friendly bacteria cultures that will help your throat as well.
Please let me know if I can be of further help. I'm so pleased for your sake to hear that you don't have HIV, but your body is still in dire need of your assistance. Give your body what it needs to do the job of healing, and it will almost always do it. It may not be overnight, because the healing process takes time, but your body is designed to heal. To your good health!
