Ít´s been a couple of weeks now since I started stage 1 of the diet and I feel that the bloating, gas, indigestion symptoms seem to be a lot better thankfully. What I am now feeling though is jittery – it´s a bit difficult to explain really other than I feel as if all of the inside of my body is on edge if you know what I mean. Has anyone else had this – is this another die off symptom or what? It´s been so long I think I´ve forgotten what feeling normal is like but yesterday seemed to be a good day for me, I did not feel too bad at all apart from this jittery feeling. Today, I just feel really tired – along with the jitters as I´m calling it. I think I just need some re-assurance that i´m still on the right track.
Nervousness and anxiety seem to be unfortunate by-products of a Candida infestation. There are a few things that can help until you’re deeper into ridding your body of the Candida. One is an herb called Passion Flower – which contains natural nerve tonic properties.
Another is Valerian Root; some people find this fairly strong, so don’t let it put you to sleep unless you’re ready for bed.
A lot of people become depressed when suffering with Candida. If this happens, try something called 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) and St. John’s wort. Some call it a myth, but I’ve seen 5HTP used more than once to regulate serotonin levels in the brain and thus aid mood and sleep.
Good luck to you, Able
