A candida cleanse is about removing excess and dieing candida from your body along with the many toxins it has released. Usually the cleanse is the start of a diet though it can be repeated during as well if you feel you need it. The idea of a cleanse is that it will give your body the best chance at successfully overcoming an overgrowth, it helps the immune system by clearing out toxins that are debilitating it and it means the diet, anti-fungal treatment and probiotics are all more effective. There are a few ways you can do a cleanse, so here is some information on cleansing, die-off and if you are looking for a candida cleanse recipe there are several here to choose from.

A cleanse can trigger something called die-off which occurs when a large amount of candida is dieing leading to an increase in the toxins released into your body. Symptoms include headaches, nausea, and flu like symptoms, and sometimes people think it means the cleanse is worsening the candida not helping. This is not true and the die-off symptoms can be eased and should only last a few days up to a week or so at most. Drink more water to flush out those toxins, use saunas, take hot baths and look for supplements like Milk Thistle that can help.
When people hear of cleanses and detoxification they presume it means starving yourself and drinking something made with a candida cleanse recipe, colonic irrigation, colon cleansing, liver flushes and so on. However while you can do it that way you can also choose to combine the flushes with a strict diet if that suits you better. A diet mixes a strict light diet with detox drinks and may be a nice way to move yourself over to the candida diet, which may not seem so restrictive after all!
Below are recipes you can use for detox drinks as part of a candida cleanse. Remember they should be done on an empty stomach so if you are using them whilst on a strict diet make sure it is at least an hour after food, and leave at least 2 hours in between drinks.
Drink for detoxification
In 1 cup of water add a tablespoon of psyllium husk powder and a tablespoon of bentonite clay. Shake and then drink down before it all settles again.
Drink for a liver flush
To one cup of water add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, a small amount of fresh ginger and a peeled clove of garlic. Blend together then drink.
The master cleanse recipe also known as the lemonade diet
10oz of filtered water mixed with two tablespoons of organic lemon juice, a pinch of cayenne pepper and two tablespoons of grade B maple syrup (for candida purposes the syrup should be substituted with an acceptable sugar alternative like Xylitol or Stevia.
