I have definitely taken a lot of antibiotics throughout my life but I had the candida for a few weeks prior to this round of antibiotics so I wouldn’t say the antibiotics kick started the candida for me. I had questioned this many many times. Do I believe the antibiotics worsened my condition? Absolutely.
Part of me believes it has a lot to do with my tooth infection which is severely weakening my immune system combined with a very bad toxic mold exposure back in March. The toxic mold exposure could of weakened my immune system to the point of allowing the bacterial infection in my tooth really take hold. In the next week I am going to get my tooth looked at and if it is infected, I’m probably just going to opt to have it removed. In my opinion, there is no saving an infected root canaled tooth, it’s just a ticking time bomb until the problems surface.
I have actually started a juice fast and I am on day 7 right now. I’m doing 90 percent greens and 10 percent fruits and the fruits I use are all on the low end of the sugar scale.
I’m going through a pretty intense detox right now and I’m almost experiencing my symptoms in reverse order. I am not getting my hopes up yet cause I’ve been let down before but working on improving my immune system through just fasting can only help.
Some will say juice fasting isn’t a good idea for those who have candida but I’ve given up on being paranoid about everything I put into my body. It hasn’t made any noticeable improvement in the last 3 months for me by fearing sugar so I’m just going to use common sense and do my best to feed my body with the nutrients it needs. I’ve also cut most of my vitamins I’ve been taking and allowing it to come from natural foods.
When I looked at a medicine cabinet filled with 20 bottles of supplements, antifungals etc, that’s when I realized I could be doing more harm than good at this point.
