Hello, Mel, and welcome to the forum.
Read the post titled “Die-off Dangers” as there are two supplements named which will substantially lessen the effects of die-off symptoms.
Have you purchased probiotics yet? If not, you don’t really need to start these until you see how bad the die-off will be. Probiotics will cause die-off symptoms just as the diet will. Also, I would leave yogurt out of the diet for at least two to three weeks.
Try to get by without eating red meat as the process of the protein being broken down in the body is an additional drain on the liver. See if you can get by by making organic eggs your main source of protein during the next three weeks. Look at the “Recipe” section on the forum and see if there are any recipes which interest you. The coconut flour bread can be eaten during the detox period as long as you use organic eggs and either coconut oil or olive oil, in fact, I would use only these two oils for cooking and making salad dressing. If you use vinegar, be sure to use only organic apple cider vinegar. “Braggs” vinegar is a perfect brand.
If you have a juicer, vegetable juice in place of at least one regular meal a day is a great way to detox.
Check your toothpaste for sugar alcohols which will feed the Candida. Also check your table salt; most regular table salts contain additional ingredients such as chemicals or Dextrose which is a type of sugar. If you can find it, purchase Himalayan sea salt which should be a pinkish color. If you can’t find this, then you can use Celtic sea salt instead.
If you can, go ahead and purchase a product by the name of “Digestive Grape Bitters” and take it after meals. These will be in a liquid form and are normally sold at health food or vitamin stores. The dosage suggested on the bottle is not necessary because the bitters work simply by nerve stimulation by coming into contact with the bitter receptors on the back of the tongue which then will release needed enzymes. This process presents a cleansing effect on the liver so it is important to drink plenty of water throughout the day to prevent a strong detox reaction. Since the principle is to stimulate the bitter receptors you only need to taste the bitterness of the herbs, therefore 1/2 of a dropper full on the tongue after meals will be enough to do the job. No matter what you read from here on out, you will not need to purchase additional enzymes as long as you use the Grape Bitters.
