It takes about 3-5 months to restore balance between the healthy bacteria and the yeast in your body, but most people will be feeling better at about 1 month into using the prescription antifungal "Diflucan."
Here is your "recipe" for treating the yeast:
Avoid sugar (except for dark chocolate, which is a healthy food in moderation). Sugar feeds yeast, so substitute Stevia, a healthy natural sweetener. Sugar free chocolate is also an option.
Take probiotics (healthy bacteria) to fight the yeast for 3-5 months (take as directed). Use the variety advertised as "pearls," as these keep your stomach acid from killing these healthy bacteria on their way to fighting the yeast.
At the same time, begin taking an herbal antifungal mix for 3-5 months (take as directed).
After 1 month on the above, add the medication Diflucan 200 mg a day for 6-12 weeks. Get the generic form fluconazole, as it is much cheaper.
