Goodness. Able gave some accurate and very useful advice, but PLEASE don’t let all of that overwhelm you. There *is* a lot to learn, but it doesn’t all have to happen at once. I really like what one of the first commenters said, listen to your body, be gentle with yourself, go at a pace that suits you. You don’t want to make your changes too slowly of course, but it’s not the end of the world if it takes a few weeks to really figure things out. My first 2 weeks I was eating foods that I didn’t realize were best avoided, and things have still gone very well for me so far. Your mindset and attitude are going to really work *for* you if you can keep them hopeful and positive and *low stress* (as much as you are able with candida symptoms of anxiety, that is).
On the liver cleanse, liver cleanses can really speed up die-off symptoms, which it sounds like you already have enough of. Doing a liver cleanse now would likely make your die-off symptoms much worse. You can still do one later, when most of your die-off seems to have evened out and you’re feeling noticeably better. Besides that, the cleanse will be easier on your liver if you can first eliminate some of the yeast and their toxins through following the diet.
Ups and downs are normal. Really 🙂 You’ll start to feel better and then WHAM you have another episode of die off. This is normal and the die-off is actually a *good* sign that your body is effectively getting rid of the yeast 🙂
Hang in there. Go easy. Believe that this really can and will get better. We look forward to hearing more from you.
