I have tested all sorts of alcohol: Cognac, whisky, rhum, wine, pineau… I used to start and stop. No alcohol cured me instantly. At the beginning, i thought it was work giving a try. I gave it a try for 3 years. Then, i understood that may be alcohol could be negative. It was always very difficult to determine whether something is good or not because with candida, it is only possible to make a conclusion after a long period. So, at some point, i decided to stop alcohol and see what’s happen.
Alcohol inhibited antifungals:
I have discovered that alcohol stopped the effect of antifungal, whatever the antifungal, both natural or allopathic (diflucan, garlic, green tea…). I came to this conclusion because after taking any types of antifungals, i felt a sort of dizziness that i considered to be the die-off as this dizziness tended to vanish after some times and at the same time my health condition improved. When i drunk alcohol, i noticed i had to take more and more antifungals to get the same dizziness effect. At some point, i felt like antifungals were totally useless.
Alcohol had an effect in the long term:
I have discovered that just after stopping alcohol, it took me several weeks to find the initial effect of garlic. For instance, 2 weeks after stopping alcohol and while i didn’t change anything in my diet, diarrheas & cramps came back. I does not look positive but for me it was a positive thing. It showed that garlic & green tea were working again. it took 2 weeks to come back to normal after the last drop of alcohol!
Consequently, i suppose that Alcohol has an impact on my body organs in the long term. Because of that, i think there is no other solutions than strictly stop alcohol if you suffer from a candida infection.
Because of that, i think it is not possible to drink alcohol for a special event like a birthday, party, family reunion… It is just not possible because it would ruin all the job done with antifungals.
Did alcohol worsen the candida disease?
Now, i am convinced alcohol stopped the candida cure. it is also possible possible that alcohol worsened candida overgrowth but i have no evidences about it. The alcohol effect can only be seen in the long term.
After stopping alcohol i have discovered that my health condition was much more stable and it was possible to forecast my health conditions. For instance, i knew that i would go to the toilets at regular hours and had to sleep at other specific hours too because of chronic fatigue. It helps to schedule my life as a candida sufferer.
1 month after stopping alcohol, i had a really big die-off. I thought i was about to die. I vomited & i had diarrheas. It took me 1 day to recover and i felt that something has changed. The day after i felt better. It was also 1 days after exposing my body to the sun. Today, i think that my body cleansed itself at that point and that vitamin D helped. Once again, i am convinced that alcohol as negative impact on the body in the long term.
I have noticed that after stopping alcohol, the die-offs were different. They were stronger but they were followed by improvements. So, i could see an improvement after stopping alcohol. By the way, after stopping alcohol, i had anxiety attacks especially in the morning. In order to stop them, i used to eat kiwis. I know it is a fruit but when die-offs are unbearable you need carbs.
Horrific die-off 1 month after stopping alcohol:
1 month after stopping alcohol, i felt death anxiety one morning. I thought i had to go to the emergency. I have waited and things got better during the day. Anxiety attacks are something, i never had before. I am not surprised about it. I think that Candida releases all kind of toxins when it dies and it creates mood swing. Anxiety attacks happened in the night and in the morning. I had to think about positive things in order to overcome it. That’s why it is important to keep track of ALL your symptoms. By writing the numbers of hours you spend on your bed & the symptoms that disappear, you can witness there is improvement even if you feel always tired & not in a good mood. I like to repeat it but my mood was definitely mind controlled by Candida.
When to see the results of stopping alcohol?
It didn’t happen right away. I had to wait 1 month to see benefits of stopping alcohol. First of all, my nose wasn’t sneezing anymore during the night and i required less & less paper tissues in the morning. I didn’t need to sleep after eating a lot. Also, i could do many more things during the day without being too tired. The recovery is slow. I like to repeat it but it makes me think that even small amount of regular alcohol has long termed consequences on the body.
