The optimal length of a Candida cleanse depends on the severity of your condition. If it’s a minor condition, it’s obviously going to be short duration. If it’s a significant condition, it’s going to take longer. The optimal length of a Candida cleanse also depends on your lifestyle, how much time you have to devote to your health, and whether you have other health conditions.
A big gastrointestinal problem can be broken down into chunks. If you have a severe Candida problem, you can start with a two to three-week cleanse. Take a week or so to recover and get your breath back. Then, do another couple of weeks of cleansing before taking another break, and so on.
If you only have a moderate Candida problem, you could do a four-week block, then take two weeks before doing a six-week block.

If you have a minor Candida problem, you could probably complete the entire cleanse in a single four to six-week block.
If you need an extended amount of cleansing, it’s essential to do a treatment block and then stop for a little while. The break allows you to assess the progress you’ve made so far. Check-in with your gut, your sleep, your libido and appetite, and your overall well-being.
You can monitor your progress by using the symptom tracker available in my Candida crusher book. Print off the tracker, date it appropriately and fill it in. You’ll be able to see what your symptoms are doing over a twelve-week period.
I strongly recommend symptom tracking. What’s the point in treatment without measuring the results? A symptom tracker will tell you whether you are improving or not. It will help determine what is and isn’t working for you. A symptom tracker also helps identify how long your Candida cleanse should be.
