Turmeric and milk thistle supports the liver, but I had to go a lot further than that to clear it. Some info you get in books or on the internet may work on some, but you wont know unless you try it out for your self. There's a lot of misinformation out there on how to get rid, but most of what p_devlin has posted I would agree on.
Has anyone ever had the pleasure themselves of trying to get rid of it?
Hi Billybunch, yes - I have completed many water only fasts. Varying from 2 to 28 days.
I have without exception found it to be the most effective way to detoxify the liver as it removes the working load almost immediately.
If you go onto curezone you will see that many people have and do water only fast. Some also dry fast which is extremely difficult.
Fear prevents many from fasting through to completion. But as you say - it is not for all, and being knowledgeable wrt recognising symptoms such as electrolyte imbalance or extremely reduced liver function and other complications are very important. This is why communities like curezone are helpful because to some extent taking responsibility for our own health requires shared knowledge and as you can see curezone provides support in this way by sharing knowledge.
Dependant on how long you fast,you will get varying degrees of herxhiemer reactions - this is also another source of fear
In retrospect - Short water only fasts lasting just a few days is probably what I should've stated but anyone contemplating fasting would be foolish not to research it thoroughly beforehand.
I've followed curezone plus many other candida related sites for years mate, Done the fasts many times over the years, been doing them since 1990. They do not permanently get rid of candida though....have you ever had the misfortune yourself of having a serious candida overload?
Killing the little critters is easy, it's eliminating them from the body. Water fasts, milkthistle, turmeric and the likes are not enough. Yes they detoxify, but sometimes the liver cant cope with such an overload and needs to be cleared......and that's when you have to take things a stage further.
