The symptoms from Candida-Die Off will vary from person to person, you may get no symptoms which is ideal, or you may end up bedridden with what appears to be a terrible flu. The reason for the die-off symptoms or Herxheimer effect is because when the yeast is dies off, it releases different toxins within your body. You can find out more about how the Herxheimer reaction http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jarisch-Herxheimer_reaction.
One common misconception that people have is that if you are getting die-off symptoms, you are healing and it is good for you. It really isn’t necessarily good or bad, it does mean that the yeast is dying, but it does not mean that new yeast is not being created within your body. One thing to note though is, if you do have a Candida overgrowth issue, having some sort of Die-Off effect is almost always expected.
Some common Die-Off reactions that you might get are:
Bloating, Gas, Constipation, or even Diarrhea
Joint Soreness & Muscle Pain
Elevated Heart Rate
Chills, Cold hands and feet
Vaginal, Prostate and Sinus Infections
