Great for Candida, but HUGE Caution

Ill start by saying that I've had a chronic candida infection (primarily in large intestine) for many years now. I've tried tons of nutritional and herbal therapies with varying degrees of improvement (olive leaf, oil of oregano, caprylic acid, GSE, clove oil, raw garlic, etc). I've also been on a very strict anti-candida diet for about 8 years. My problem goes back about 25 years to a period in high school when I was prescribed broad spectrum antibiotics for 3 years for acne (Oh, how I wish I could go back in time and change that). Anyway, bottom line is, Cellfood is absolutely the most effective thing I've ever used for my Candida. However, I nearly killed myself with my cleansing reaction from this stuff. It cleansed and scrubbed so much candida, so fast, that is was more than my liver could handle. I have never felt so sick in my life, and hopefully never will again. I didnt sleep for 3 days as my liver was using all of my body's available energy to try to detoxify the candida die off. Here's the catch, I stopped taking cellfood 5 days ago when it seemed that the die off was starting to get too hard to handle, but cellfood seems to perpetuate in the system for awhile, because my die off continued to worsen even after stopping the dosage I was taking (8 drops 3 times per day). Folks, dont make this mistake if youre going to use this for candida. I ramped up to 20 drops a day way too fast (I didnt expect it to work, frankly). Im almost back to my old self after dealing with that die off. Part of me wants to throw the bottle away, thats how sick it made me. But another part is telling me, this cellfood is the cure Ive been looking for. So, I'll be taking 1 drop a day for awhile, and maybe increase it 1 drop a week. I urge anyone else with candida to be just as cautious.
