The herb cumin contains a potent antifungal activity against Candida, so dashing it undiluted by food onto your tongue like that is no doubt what caused the massive die-off. Just watch what ‘new’ things you try and you may want to run anything else by the forum before trying it.
I had 3 tsp of coconut oil last night because I didn’t get your reply until after I had already taken it. I had about 1oz of chicken in my salad today because I was craving it and haven’t had chicken or salmon in probably 10 days. Besides all that, I had a normal day with food. Lots of avacado, broccoli, romaine, cauliflower, asparagus, zucchini. Do you think the tiny amounts of spices were a big setback and the die off is related to that? Or could it be the rhutabaga from yesterday still affecting me? Or both?
The rutabaga shouldn’t still be affecting you, but the cumin coupled with the coconut oil no doubt was bothering you a great deal.
Is there any way of finding out how long the antifungal effects of different foods/supplements last? I’d be interested in that because it would make things less confusing. How do these allergic reactions to foods affect my treatment.
This can’t be predetermined as everyone is different and everyone’s die-off symptoms will be different lasing for different times. Unfortunately, there is no way of successfully predicting anything at all about a Candida infestation.
You definitely need to back off on the amounts of antifungals until you have the molybdenum in your body.
(and is red pepper an allergic or feeding issue?)?
Red pepper shouldn’t be eaten on the diet, only green peppers. Check the strict version of the diet and you’ll notice this.
