Candida is real. IgG antibodies. What do I do now?

I had a blood test done for Candida Albicans. It came back positive.

After yet another round of doctors who know very little, finally one recommended that I take nystatin.

I am pretty hard core Paleo except for occasional cheese.

The only fruit I have is plums to manage my constipation.

Any recommendations? Advice?

Thank you very much for your answer! I will try to get it cultured to see what is going on.

I have been very strict Paleo for about 6 month, it did not help. I am still Paleo (with occasional cheese). My two symptoms are fatigue and multiple food intolerances. No sugar but I have plums every day. Not too many though.

Unless cultured it doesn't mean you have active infection, you've simply been exposed previously.

I have been eating Paleo for about 6 weeks now to fix a leaky gut. I also suspect that I have a Candida infection. I have been taking multiple supplements to heal the gut and others to kill the yeast overgrowth. I know that Nystatin is an option, but I want to kill the yeast with supplements.

I did a ton of research. I'll provide many links, in no particular order:

This guy's blog is great, also. Here is a direct link to an article he wrote about Candida

Perhaps consider a saccharomyces boulardii supplement

Anti Fungals are pretty nasty. Do you have any symptoms? Have you tried probiotics and fermented foods? Have you cut out sugar? When I was deep into sinus infections I tried a strict Candida diet for a few weeks, I was the most miserable human alive for those weeks and it did nothing. Only strict Paleo cured me. Keep the faith.
