When people go on a Candida cleanse, they can get all sorts of digestive symptoms. They might experience gas, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea.
Why is diarrhea one of the possible results? Well, if you think about the reasons why people go on a Candida cleanse, there are many reasons. Many people assume they’ve got Candida. As I’ve said in previous videos, half the people I check out properly have not got Candida. They’ve got other parasites or lack of beneficial bacteria. Other times they have an underlying pancreatic issue.
When you go on a Candida cleanse, don’t assume that you’re cleansing Candida. Before you start a treatment plan, get a comprehensive stool analysis (CSA). A CSA will tell you what you’re dealing with in your gut. Maybe it is a Candida problem, but it could also be something else like harmful bacteria.

Once you have confirmed the presence of Candida and started a cleanse, there are two main reasons why diarrhea will develop. Firstly, dramatic diet changes can cause diarrhea. If you add fermented or cultured foods too quickly into your diet, your gut can suffer. Secondly, if you are taking too large a dose or too many types of antimicrobials, diarrhea can result. If you are taking antimicrobials without having confirmed that Candida is the problem, you could be undermining your gut by destroying beneficial bacteria.
Be careful; if you didn’t have diarrhea until you started the Candida cleanse, you could be treating the wrong problem.
If you have confirmed Candida and diarrhea develops, my recommendation is that you go back to the diet you were following before the Candida cleanse. Then, make changes more slowly, so your gut bacteria have time to adjust to your new way of eating.
