All of your food allergies would lead one to assume that you’ve contracted Leaky Guy Syndrome because of the Candida infestation.

Trying to reduce red meat content but have a family I cook for which needs a varied diet also

The forum has many members who are wives and mothers who must cook for their family every single day, yet they are able to remain steadily on the diet at the same time and work towards healing their infestation. So these ladies are proof that it can be done.
The one common thread that we see most often from new members on the forum is that their story shows us that most of them seem to be under the impression that some factor of their particular story somehow makes them different from anyone else who has suffered from Candida; this probably happens with 99% of new members in the beginning. And the quicker they lose that mindset, the quicker they’re going to cure their infestation.

Started a vitamin c supplement, Have been increasing nystatin with strong die off results so had to stop, restart and reduce a few times, baked one loaf of coconut bread, started oil pulling for oral thrush but the effects were too strong – became very tired fatigued and achy, crampy….

This is die-off symptoms which means that the Candida are dying, a good sign actually, but you definitely need to control the die-off effect since this is basically a ton of Candida toxins such as aldehydes entering and damaging your body. To continue with the treatment and control die-off at the same time, read the following post.

I still seem to have sinus swelling a lot of the time to a lot of good foods even sometimes after a cup of just boiling water ?
My menstrual cycle this month is way off – (but I have lost 2 stone in 3 months)and I can be very gassy from below !
My teeth often feel like there is a residue I cant brush off easily – is this the yeast?

All of the above are symptoms of Candida, meaning that you could still have a Candida infestation in your body.

Also with the reaction to the orange which was scary at the time- do I stay away from the lemons and limes because they are citrus ?

Of course it’s possible that you may be allergic to oranges, but the likely reason that you reacted as you did is the high sugar content.
An average orange contains 23 grams of sugar, but there are only 1.5 grams of sugar in one average size lemon. So now you know why you don’t need to be eating oranges or any fruit other than lemons and limes. Drinking lemon or lime water once or twice a day is a good way to cleanse your body. However, keep in mind that you can be allergic to lemons or limes, so when you start using either one, use only a very small amount of juice the first few times.

All of the symptoms above could represent a Candida infestation.

Also I had a few days of doing black poops!

There are several possible reasons for black stools.
Are you taking an iron supplement? Or is iron in the multi-vitamin you’re taking? Unabsorbed iron salts cause a black stool. Temporary black stools can mean that you have blood in your stool.
Dark or black stools often refer to mucus-type plaque, which is an accumulation of toxins in the intestinal mucus which is then expelled. As it passes through the colon, the toxins are re-assimilated back into the body; this can also explain any fatigue. This mucus plaque is not die-off but it is a cleaning effect which is normally a good sign.

treats are almond or hazelnut butters – but tend to binge on these
small amount of sugar free cornflakes
1 piece of carob the very odd time
kettle crisps or popcorn – once a week

Combined, the practices above can keep your infestation going indefinitely.
The protocol that members generally follow is below: you would benefit from reading it.
