Q: I’ve been under a great amount of stress and started taking Royal Camu to help with this. I’ve had a very strange reaction. For the first few hours, I feel great – energized and happy. Then I get completely exhausted to the point of having to go lie down. I read somewhere that Camu-Camu has strong anti-fungal properties. I have Candida. Do you think I could be having a die-off reaction from taking the Royal Camu?
A: You’ve probably hit the nail on the head. It seems Royal Maca Allthat whenever someone has a bad reaction Royal Camu – which is not common – it’s because they are suffering from severe systemic Candida. There are many ways to help get your Candida under control to the point where taking Royal Camu would actually help you maintain a healthy gut ecology and not cause any “side effects.” I suggest you read a wonderful best-selling book called The Body Ecology Diet for suggestions on how to use food to overcome the overgrowth of Candida.
In addition you can try a home remedy combining psyllium husk powder and liquid bentonite clay in a large glass of water with one or two capryllic acid tablets a couple of times a day about 20 minutes after eating. Once your Candida is under control—it’s always in the body but a small amount is not harmful to you—you can go back to trying the Royal Camu at a very small dosage and only gradually increase the dosage, every two months.about Royal Camu® in our Herbal Research Section.
