I'm on the anti-candida diet, strict with no Sugar allowed, lots of protein sources, etc. I've been on it for weeks now, maybe a month (not sure yet). I also take probiotics every morning, and have been for months, and Candizyme at night, which I've been doing for over a month.
But a little over a week ago, I decided to buy oil of oregano, since it's said to be the best antifungal by far, and one you can safely take for 6 weeks before you need to stop for 2, supposedly. At least, candida is said to not easily build up resistance to it.
Anyway, 3 days ago, when going to take my Candizyme, I did what I always do and opened the capsules into the cup of water, since I can't swallow capsules and instead drink the enzymes down. Well, as I went to drink them down, my sinuses seem to have a reaction of some sort, as if I was somehow sensitive to the smell of the enzymes (and I'm pretty sure they barely have a smell).
The next night, that didn't happen.
Yesterday, I took oil of oregano twice rather than once, and I went to take my enzymes. I had a significantly LOWER reaction to the smell, rather slight. But later that night, I felt a slight sinus headache, and I've been feeling a very mild sinus headache today.
What is going on? I've had candida die-off before, and I know candida can cause sinus problems as well as sensitivities to smells (which I've had to only a small handful of smells, and to varying random degrees, too. Like sometimes it's more powerful and sometimes barely there). I also know die-off can be similar to candida's actual problems.
So, is this a new die-off symptom, and a sign oil of oregano is doing its job well? Should I reduce my intake to once a day (I take 3 drops in water) instead of twice for now? Or is this a reaction to oil of oregano? Ironically, oil of oregano is said to help people deal with sinus problems. Is this a reaction before things get better? Has anyone else experienced this?
