Hello, Chris. Welcome to the Candidate Diet forum.
A few things came to me as I was reading your post. First, I hope you’re following the P&B cleanse with at least eight ounces of water each time.
Plus, the P&B should be taken at least one hour before and after any supplements.
Are you ingesting any salt at all right now? The problem with the combination of not eating, an intestinal cleanse, and drinking that much water is the possibility of becoming deficient in sodium, the results of which can be quite horrible.
Symptoms are low blood sugar, dehydration (constant thirst), muscle cramps, heart palpitations, you would feel very weak, experience confusion, and possibly nausea and a slurred speech.
Just please be sure you’re getting salt, and definitely sea salt if you can get it. You could put sea salt in the broth if you’re not already doing so.
About the Bentonite Clay powder, yes you definitely want to hydrate the BC powder to a very thick soup consistency or a slightly pourable yogurt consistency before using it. By the way, if you ever decide to ask the store clerk to get the BC for you again, you could try asking if he can get it in the liquid form.
As far as whether or not to continue the detox; I would say listen to your body. If you start to feel really weak and ‘run down’ and you’re sure it’s not a sodium deficiency, then you may want to stop and allow your body to rest. It seems you don’t need to lose weight, so you want to watch this. Many people on the Candida diet lose weight the entire time, and they usually have a problem gaining the weight back.
Are you taking a good probiotic or do you plan to? This is something that’s imperative to a Candida cure.
Concerning die-off symptoms, if you can get the products, there are two that can really help you through that. They’re called Candidate by Native Remedies, and the other one is something called Molybdenum. Once you start experiencing die-off, you’ll be very grateful to have either of these, or both if it’s possible.
Good luck to you, Chris, and like Hope said I’m also very glad that you found the forum; you’ll receive constant support here from people who really care about you being able to get past this disease.
