You’ve got the wrong approach on this and the wrong mindset.
What you are experiencing is called “die off” symptoms where dead candida toxins are flooding your body. This is very similar to “flu like” symptoms except more severe. When you kill candida, you will feel worse before you get better…this is just how it goes because those toxins are wreaking havoc on your body.
We developed a pretty good “protocol” for healing from candida and I recommend checking it out:
We have a lot of information on the forum, so here it is if you want to educate yourself:
You can reduce die off symptoms by taking molybdenum or sweating out the toxins via the bodies largest organ, the skin. You can take a jacuzzi, hot tub, steam room, or even hot bath to sweat out the toxins.
The biggest reason your constipation is so bad is because you are doing the psyllium husks and clay cleanse. If you have leaky gut, the psyllium husks can cause internal bleeding and isn’t recommended as a way to cleanse from candida. The reason your abdomen hurts is from the husks…you should stop immediately.
One thing you should do is tell us your diet. We have a much stricter version of the website’s diet on the forum that will help you get over this faster. This version doesn’t even allow rice. Email able900 for a copy of it.
Healing leaky gut takes many months and I finally healed mine after 9 months on the diet. It can take as long as 6-18 months to fully recover from candida overgrowth.
