I’m finding myself asking exactly the same question, do I have parasites, candida, or leaky gut, or (more likely) all three?
You mentioned there are some differences in the diet for parasites, could you give me the details of these?
I think I probably have got all three problems, but I’m not quite sure how to get better. I’ve been doing the diet from the website for over a month now, and have been feeling much less bloated, my skin is no longer dry, my acne has completely cleared up and I have much fewer problems with cystitis, however I’m now starting to be tired all the time again so I’m wondering if my anti fungals are stopping working. From your other posts I know they stop being effective after a while.
I’m taking a variety of natural ones from BioCare, including graprefruit oil extract, garlic, oregano, clove, cinnamon, and some strong pro biotics. I was already on a macrobiotic diet before this and so haven’t really had any die off symptoms, but I get headaches, exhaustion, mood swings etc if I have the tiniest thing that has sugar or chemical sweeteners in it.
I have such a strong reaction to most foods that I feel like I’m trapped in an incredibly restrictive diet. I’m intolerant to sugar, gluten, lactose, soya, shellfish, strawberries, oranges and probably some other things I’ve forgotten, and I’m not really sure whether just that fact that I can’t have any of these on a candida diet is the main thing that is helping.
I haven’t had sugar cravings for ages, but now they seem to be coming back again. I’ve got a history of asthma and chest infections which means I was on anti biotics and steriods from a young age, and have also taken the birth control pill, and been travelling to foreign countries where I could have picked up parasites. I’ve had hair tests done that show I’m depleted in my minerals, and did have high levels of heavy metals in my system but these have mostly now been dealt with.
Predictably doctors keep telling me there’s nothing wrong with me because my organs aren’t failing, I’m not visibly dying and there isn’t anything they can cut off, so I’ve ended up here through doing my own research.
Any suggestions welcome! Able900, I’ve emailed you to ask for your more rigid diet. I think they one on this site isn’t quite cutting it for me.
Thanks for listening.
