My treatment plan for imbalanced microbiota / candida
« on: November 07, 2017, 11:26:53 AM »
Hey guys, I create this thread to share my current treatment approach and progress. Candida is a highly controversial topic but I decided to trust my new doctor who diagnosed a weak liver, an imbalanced microbiota and Candida overgrowth. He proposed the following treatment plan:

Phase 1: Strenghtening the liver
- Silymarin for 8 days

Phase 2: Candida diet + antimycotic drugs
- Amphotericin B (Infusion) for 8 days, then Nystatin for 17 days
- Toxaprevent Medi Plus for 15 +- 3 days for liver support
- Strict Candida diet during this phase

Phase 3: Reestablishing microbiota balance
- Probiotics for 90 days
- Fish oil + B-Complex + Minerals (not sure yet how long)
- Probably continued Candida diet during this phase, strictness based on what happens in phase 2

I will post updates on how this goes. I already completed phase 1 and started today with phase 2. For information about my POIS read http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=426.msg21121#msg21121

Thanks for sharing. I'm really interested in how phase 2 will play out. Some doctors will prescribe a combined trial of antibiotics and antimycotics in case there is a suspicion for an additional bacterial overgrowth. There are no diagnostic tests for candida overgrowth so it's all guess work and trial and error. How did your doctor diagnose the weak liver, imbalanced microbiotica and candida overgrowth? Looking forward to your updates.

Hi Muon, the doctor used applied kinesiology for the diagnosis, another very controversial topic. I also asked about more scientific tests but he said there are only ones that are likely to be misleading or inaccurate.

Update:
Today, monday 13.11, is day 8 of phase 2 (day 7 of amphotericin). Since day 2 I noticed a bit more flu like symptoms (runny nose, headaches, coldness, maybe a little fever) than ususal in this period (currently on day 17 since last O). On friday morning I started to get intense coldness/shivers coming from my kidneys as well as tension and light pains in this area (I think its the same as what I get as one of the first symptoms after O but more intense). It got worse until sunday where I got a little scared because I was freezing cold in the morning and shivers continued throughout the day. Also I had light burning sensations when peeing and noticed many small white flakes/pieces in my urine, never seen that before. I was afraid my kidney and liver were working too hard and, tough unlikely, might be infected or something. So I made an appointment with the doctor where I just was. Luckily, when I woke this morning, the urine was clear again and the coldness as well as most of the kidney tension was gone. What remains now is what I would describe as light soreness in the area. The doctor asked me for a urine sample and I will call later today about the results.

On another topic, I asked him whether abstinence over longer periods of time could be a problem. He said no, so I'll continue my current strategy of having the least ejaculations as possible. He also told me its best not to worry too much about POIS for now and recommended to start addressing psychological/emotional problems besides the gut therapy (He mentioned that POIS might be related to the autonomic nervous system, which is why we're addressing POIS indirectly for now). I will have another appointment with another doctor in the same office to discuss whether this would make sense and if yes what kind of psychologist would be the right fit for me.

So for now, I think I'm in good hands. Altough I'm still skeptical about the kinesiology part, the doctors competence and medical background seem impressive. He studied medicine, had several specialised educations (e.g. urology and chiropractic) and also training in traditional chinese and naturopathic medicine.

Hi paradoxx,

It is very encouraging to hear about a doctor who really invests himself in POIS treatment.

I called and he said my urine results are normal. Also my blood test results were ready and everything is in normal range except vitamin D which is very low, so he prescribed a supplement. Will add details about the type of supplement and dosage once I receive the prescription. I'll also try to use a full spectrum light.

Update: Added Vitamin D3 20000 IU, will take it twice a week for the next 2 months.
