Is the Herx reaction on the Candida diet and the "die off" when taking an anti-fungal the same thing?
Also, is it worth it? I'm scared of the die off/Herx reaction since I'm bipolar.

I'm sorry you've only been getting spam answers.
Generally the safest and gentlest way to control/remove the Candida is to replenish the Probiotics (the beneficial bacteria that live in your intestinal tract). The Probiotics help to defend against other bad bacteria and growths like yeast, so it will work more gently and naturally. Granted, that means it'll take a little longer than a harsh cleanse, but you wouldn't have the Herx Reaction much at all... the faster the cleanse, the more the reaction would be. Although on the flip side, I've never heard of the Herx Reaction having a bigger impact with Bipolar... but if it did, it wouldn't last very long anyway. Good luck and I hope I helped!Source(s): Personal experience and personal research in my role as a Product Specialist for a vitamin company
