So I haven’t updated anything about me on this thread for about 6 months so thought I would do it…this might be my final “blog post” on here.
About 2 months ago I did the s.boulardii protocol with floraster and this greatly knocked down the candida numbers to the point where I don’t have any setbacks when I cheat now other than constipation. I think it eradicated about 95% of the remaining yeast which was like 95% reduced compared to when I started out, so I think I have low levels of yeast left in my body (1-5% or so when compared to maximum).
I don’t really have any symptoms remaining, just symptoms related to other health problems that may or may not be related to yeast. For instance, I still have insomnia, thyroid issues, anxiety when I smoke too much pot, and minor liver issues…but all in all these are pretty minor compared to when I started out.
I still take a ton of supplements and I don’t know how long I will be taking them, but I have managed to reduce some of the more expensive ones by half. I can also go for long periods of time without yeast setbacks if I stop taking them (sometimes I take a few days break or week, etc.) Basically they are for sleep, general nutrition, and digestion.
I still do the diet pretty strict for 6/7th of the time typically (or 6 days out of 7 days per week) just because I enjoy it and I don’t want to go off of it because it works. But I do eat wheat or sugar, etc. and not notice any ill effects.
I plan on doing a 2nd round of floraster or another boulardii product in a month or two and then continuing what I am currently doing.
I also started my FSA (flexible spending account) and so I am saving big time $ on the supplements, so its almost like I get them for free via the tax savings.
I do plan on trying out chelation sometime but I need to reconstitute first. Also I plan on taking the spanish blood test with my ND this year after I get some inheritance money. This should reveal deeper things about my health.
