Q: The probiotic that I am taking has 50 billion bacteria
per capsule. How does the Candida Freedom formula
A: Most probiotics primarily contain Lactobacillus strains of bacteria. The performance of this group of bacteria is reduced when exposed to an environment with high populations of Candida. Increasing the per billion count of Lactobacillus to fight Candida is like doing battle with bows and arrows. Increasing bows and arrows is ineffective, when heavy artillery is often needed to do the job.

Q: Can I take this product while taking an anti-biotic?
A: Yes. The bacteria used in Candida Freedom is strong, fast growing and resistant to anti-biotic therapy. In fact, the Candida Freedom formula will assist in maintaining a proper balance of intestinal flora potentially avoiding the common yeast outbreaks experienced after anti-biotic therapy.
DOSAGE AND USAGE QUESTIONS
Q: Is there any special diet that I need to be on or foods to stay away from while I take Candida Freedom? A: Candida Freedom is designed as a professional strength supplement with anti-fungal and probiotic properties. Results are usually experienced in a short period of time without any lifestyle changes. However, to reach your health goals quickly and for long-term optimal performance, it is always best to reduce or eliminate foods and other substances that encourage the overgrowth of Candida. The following is a partial list of foods and other items to limit:
Processed foods, Anti-biotic therapy
Refined carbohydrates, Steroid based drugs
Sugar (white, brown, honey, ...), Birth control pills
Condiments, Anti-inflammatory drugs
High starch foods, Toxic metals
Artificial flavors, sweeteners, Tap water Other contributing factors to Candidiasis or overgrowth:
Addictive substances (caffeine, alcohol,sugar),
High blood sugar,
High carbohydrate diet,
Impaired Liver function,
Silver amalgam dental fillings,
High stress levels,
Toxins in the system Q: Can I take more than one capsule per day?
A: Yes. When using Candida Freedom for the first time, it is recommended to take one capsule daily. Pay attention to how the body responds. Some individuals may require less than one capsule per day initially while others can take more. After the first week of use, increase to 2 capsules per day if desired. Q: Is water important while taking this product?
A: Yes. Proper hydration will assist all channels of elimination while addressing Candida overgrowth issues. The general rule with water consumption is half your body weight in ounces of water daily. Q: I always have very bad die off with other anti-candida products. Can I expect that with Candida Freedom?
A: It is not common to experience die off symptoms with Candida Freedom. However, everyone is different. Everyone's yeast load is different. The main cause of these uncomfortable die off symptoms is due to poor elimination and hydration while cleansing. Start slow with Candida Freedom and make sure you are consuming plenty of water and fiber to assist in the elimination process. EXPERIENCE EXPERIENCE:
I have suffered with psoriasis for the past 9 years. I have tried numerous medicines including topical ointments, biologics and light boxes. I have benefited the most from vitamins, working out, and most recently Candida Freedom. I was definitely skeptical as first. I started in August and I had large psoriasis patches on my lower extremities and a little bit on my elbows. Only two months later it has reduced to small spots on my legs. I am amazed and so ecstatic at the results. I have started wearing dresses, skirts and shorts again! I emailed all of my friends who have skin issues to inform them of this great product.
Lauren Stellmach EXPERIENCE:
As long as you are taking this product as directed and drinking lots of water, this is by far the best product available. If you would like an instant improvement in your quality of life, try Candida Freedom and Candida Digest. I will admit at first I did not wish to purchase the Digest formula as cheaper enzymes are on the market. However, I quickly realized why the formula is a companion to the Freedom.
Craig W. EXPERIENCE:
Phenomenal - Raised with a no sugar diet during elementary years and taking vitamins/herbs I have always been healthier than most. However during my late30's into 40 began feeling that yeast may be an issue. After tyring many products some having a little impact and others not, I noticed symptons continuing and slowly increasing. I purchased the Candida Freedom and Candida Digest anticipating a 90 day trial. Within 30 days I noticed dramatic changes- dramatic because I never thought I had issues retainging waste, or lack of energy or bloating. But wow, now after 90 days My energy levels have sky rocketed, waste elimantions much much more substantial, and my waistline went from 36 to 35, skin is clearer and more....Amazing
I used to live in Fayetteville NC and started working at a local supplement store called Apple Crate and I was having the worst case of eczema according to all the dermatologists on my right hand. I was introduced to your product by my boss Allison who kept insisting I would see a difference. At first I was super doubtful since I had used many prescription and over the counter products, but after using it for 2 weeks I started seeing a change. I was on Candida Freedom on and off 6 months and my hand cleared. It has been 3 years and no eczema. I still take it for a preventive on and off. Thanks Dr. Massey!
P.S. Just moved to Lacey, WA and no one sold your product....got a job at a Compound Pharmacy and they opened an account with you and I should be getting your product once again. EXPERIENCE:
I have always had a vaginal discharge that my gynecologist never worried about and told me it was natural and that there was nothing I could do for it. Recently, it was getting worse and I just assumed it was stress and hormonal fluctuation. A woman at a health food store told me to try your soap and within two days, the discharge has significantly decreased. My 12 year old daughter has the same issue and I told her to use the soap. I thought it was just coincidence that my condition was getting better until my daughter said to me, "Mom the soap works". It's unbelievable the difference.
I would like to know if I would benefit from the douche as well, or the probiotic pill.
Michelle B (Reply: Thank you for your feedback and I'm glad to hear that the soap is working for your family.
The Candida Freedom capsules would be a good choice.
Just follow the directions and make sure you are drinking plenty of water.
The douche can also be used as needed during imbalances. EXPERIENCE:
I went to my local health food store to purchase a totally different product to combat a very irritating yeast infection when a salesperson recommended Candida Freedom. After 1 week of taking the product internally and 3 days as a douche, my problem had diminished and I felt great! I've been on the product now for 10 days and I no longer crave the breads and sweets that I once did. And what really touched my heart was that after I contacted Dr. Massey, he called me back a week later to check up on me and I felt so comfortable talking to him, as if I'd known him forever. Thank you for offering such a wonderful product and I will surely be telling others about you. I wish you much success!
LaNeika C EXPERIENCE:
I had been battling psoriasis and yeast on my skin for a year or more. It was so bad that I refused to wear shorts for gym class at school. Someone at a health food store recommended that I try Candida Freedom. I started taking one capsule a day internally. Also, I mixed one capsule in water or lotion and applied it 3 or 4 times a day. After 3 days, the affected skin areas turned a pinkish color instead of bright red and the itching calmed down. Wearing shorts to gym class is no problem now. After one week my skin is about 70% cleared. I would recommend Candida Freedom to anyone with skin problems or who has been on long term antibiotics. This has been the best product yet and we have tried many others!
Wilmer, AL. EXPERIENCE:
I’ve been on prescription drugs trying to get relief from the many discomforts of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). My local heath food store suggested that I try Candida Freedom. I started with one capsule daily for the first week. Increasing to 2 capsules daily. I experienced 75% relief in a short period of time and was able to discontinue my prescriptions. I would recommend this product to anyone suffering from IBS especially spasms. Candida Freedom has given me hope!
Theodore, AL. EXPERIENCE:
I've used your soap for several months with good results. I was recently challenged with yeast overgrowth and someone recommended I take your probiotic and use the soap. I opened the capsules, mixed with water and sprayed on the area. INSTANT relief from the itching and burning. For me these products are a better option for yeast than an Rx. EXPERIENCE:
Thank you so much Mr. Massey! I am a 37 year old woman that has had digestive issues my whole life. I tried many brands of weak probiotics. I discovered Candida Freedom and reluctantly gave it a try. I have been blown away within the past year at how amazing this probiotic works for me. I have Celiac and an EXTREMELY sensitive stomach. When I go without these my health is inferior. Thank you so much for your creation. It has changed my life!!!! EXPERIENCE:
I have a 5 year old son with Autism. We've been treating him BioMedically for the past 2 years with great results. Frustrated that his recovery seemed to have plateaued, I added Candida Freedom because yeast overgrowth was an area we hadn't visited yet. It's completely safe to try and I had nothing to lose. He's been on it for a little over 2 months. About a month ago, my husband asked me if I noticed a change it our son's receptive language (conversational ability). I did and so did others. It's been 2+ months taking Candida Freedom and he has truly made a giant leap in his recovery! These changes have stayed consistent and are still improving! We are finally engaging in conversation about school, friends, play, life; all the things most people don't realize Autism can take away. He is so much happier -- he is processing what we say so much better and he knows it; His whole demeanor has calmed, so he's much better behaved in public. This is a fantastic product - I'm glad I took the leap of faith!
Susan C South Florida EXPERIENCE:
I have been using the candida freedom soap for about 2 years now. Ever since I was little I have had a problem with getting a rash on the upper-inner parts of my thighs. Nothing I ever used took it away. I just tried to manage it with medicated powder but the candida freedom soap completely cleared up my skin!! I am so thankful for this soap. I recently started using it on my face and neck because of breakouts and it has done wonderful. Having oily sensitive skin makes my skin very hard to manage and hydrate. However this soap has done both without leaving my face greasy or dry. I absolutely love this soap!!
