Latka wrote: I’ve been on the strict forum diet for 4 weeks now. And before that a year of a more allowing Candida diet. I have never experienced any die off as far as I know. However my food reactions have been getting worse: I react to all foods with massive bloating and gas now. Whenever I eat I balloon up shortly afterwards.
I actually decided to eliminate eggs for a while to see if that helps. I suspected that maybe I have eaten them too much lately and developed an intoleranse to them. I have heard that this can happen with a leaky gut. I am hoping that in time as the gut heals I will be able to eat them again?
However today I had as severe reactions to broccoli and sardines, as well as to kefir and flax seed. Starting to wonder if the bloating might be caused by the stronger probiotics that I am taking since a week – is that possible? I went from Udo’s 5 to taking Innate Response 14-20. I’m taking one a day and hoping to increase to two a day soon.
Is it possible the bloating is caused by the new probiotics? Should I go down to a lower dose for a while or just put up with the reactions?
do you know if you have Candida? I experienced the same reaction as you and later after 5 month figured out that I didnt have Candida but IBS-D type.
The sypthoms are the same as in Candida but what was confusing to me was that I grew worse and worse being on the diet.
The reason for me was an unbalance of bacteria in the small intestines. These bacteria, they can even be good bacteria, living from fibers – like broccoli and many of the foods here on the diet. While eating the high fiber diet here you will feed the bacteria, these are producing poisons gas and you swell up like a balloon, get diarrhoea, wind, brain-fog, nausea, anxiety, even panic attacks.
Then when you push more bacteria into the system, good ones, picking up the fight for food and producing gas. Well, figure yourself. I didnt feel so good either with my probiotics while I still was feeding the others guys.
After I am on a “un-healthy” diet not eating fiber. I am ok. All my terrible symptoms vanished. I now and then try some of my old pro-biotica but I get an nausea reaction. So I keep cool with them. I eat a lot of eggs and dont have problems.
If the diet dont work move on and search like Sherlock Holmes. I found that my case was IBS with an intolerance to fiber.
