I will keep you posted as usual! I do actually have an update as unfortunately today I feel like I’m back at square one. I’ve had a particularly bad stomach (as though someone is squeezing it) and felt exhausted, heavy, fuzzy-headed, irritable and weak again today. I found this strange as I haven’t changed anything in my regime other than adding in the Candidate and Digestive Grape Bitters which are supposed to help with any ill feelings!
So I thought I’d run through the DGB ingredients with you to see if there’s anything in that as some of them looked a bit dubious to me:
Gentian root, Angelica root, Astragalus root, Bai-Zhu Atractylodes Rhizome, Dill Fruit, Goldenseal root, Juniper Berry, Oregon Grape root, Yerba Santa Leaf, Cardamom seed, Yarrow Flowering Tops, Coriander Seed, Galangal Rhizome, Ginger Root, with essential oils of Anise Fruit and Sweet Orange.
It also includes Grape juice, grain alcohol (20%) and purified water.
I was also having a look at the ingredients of Candidate and noticed firstly that it contains pau d’arco which I had to stop taking (as tea) previously when I was using it as an antifungal because it was causing stomach pains. And secondly that it contains 60% ethanol!!
I am a bit confused and feeling terrible so I was wondering if you could shed some light on this for me?
On another note – I added a bit of Granny Smith apple today and didn’t feel any worse for it (I added this long after I had started to feel ill as previously mentioned). So shall I only take a quarter a day or can I take quarters at intervals throughout the day adding up to one apple?
I hope you’re well and enjoying the start of a brand new weekend!
