Oh man, Jackie, I’m having trouble believing that happened. You knew what you were going to hear from me when you typed the details, didn’t you? So … Is that why you gave us that list of “nasties” as Lucy calls them? You think you deserve what I’m about to say?
Well, I don’t think you deserve it anymore than you deserved to suffer through the past few days, but I’m afraid I’m still going to say pretty much what you expect me to say, but I’ll try to be gentle, I’m sure you’ve already suffered enough.
Yes, this is basically what I did at Christmas with the test, but there’s a huge difference in our timing. I had been what I believed to be “completely cured” for around 7 months. You stopped having symptoms when? I think it was about six weeks ago that you were having reactions to some chicory coffee which contained barley, malted barley, and rye, and maybe you’ve had mild symptoms since then. Anytime you have a reaction such as you had at that time it’s a sure sign that there is still “Candida” in your body and not just “yeast” in its benign form. So what you did was basically perform the same type of test that I did … only at least 5 ½ months earlier. Jackie, Jackie, Jackie. Sorry, I think that came from some point in my childhood.
So forget about the past and go forward, remember? You should do what I did. First a short period of detox if you can manage it; remember that you can do a very simple detox with green (mostly raw) fresh vegetables and lemon water. This would be the best detox for a short period, otherwise, the same thing with organic eggs for a little longer will also work.
I’m really sorry this happened, J, and I do blame a lot of it on stress; stress brings negative emotions and negative emotions bring more stress, and these do all sorts of things to our body and mind. Then you were basically starved for food, any food, obviously you weren’t thinking clearly from all of the before-mentioned stress, etc. so it’s no wonder you went off the deep end.
Take care of yourself, Jackie, and don’t you dare let this change your dedication to your health; that alone gives you a head start on so many others because most of them don’t have that dedication that you’ve continued to have throughout your treatment.
Remember that all of us – at one time or another … or more than once … have experienced setbacks, it happened, it happens, and it always will happen with everyone who goes through this. But we all can, will, or did get through it, and if one person has gotten through it before, dammit I know you can too.
