I had a blood test done for Candida Albicans. It came back positive.
After yet another round of doctors who know very little, finally one recommended that I take nystatin.
I am pretty hard core Paleo except for occasional cheese.
The only fruit I have is plums to manage my constipation.
Any recommendations? Advice?

I have been eating Paleo for about 6 weeks now to fix a leaky gut. I also suspect that I have a Candida infection. I have been taking multiple supplements to heal the gut and others to kill the yeast overgrowth. I know that Nystatin is an option, but I want to kill the yeast with supplements.
I did a ton of research. I'll provide many links, in no particular order:
This guy's blog is great, also. Here is a direct link to an article he wrote about Candida
Another site I like:
Perhaps consider a saccharomyces boulardii supplement

Anti Fungals are pretty nasty. Do you have any symptoms? Have you tried probiotics and fermented foods? Have you cut out sugar? When I was deep into sinus infections I tried a strict Candida diet for a few weeks, I was the most miserable human alive for those weeks and it did nothing. Only strict Paleo cured me. Keep the faith.
