The reasons are 1. that in the last few days I wake up with this incredible pounding of my heart where all I need to do is just walk to the bathroom and it is intense and scary and even laying back down takes some time before it calms down again.I have no energy until I eat and I mean I am struggling to do what I need to do in the mornings. And for the rest of the day for that matter…I am wondering if its the need to have more carbs.
And 2. Being on this diet of no dairy,wheat,gluten,sugar,nuts,grains,seeds,tea,coffee,alcohol,
fruit and whatever else I have left out…I am now feeling, after getting creative and changing recipes to suit the diet after all this time I am now getting bored with eating and I am finding that I am force feeding myself at times.
I’m not craving things at all but I am wanting to have some other things because I am worried about my health at this point. I mean, this heart pounding issue is a real problem. I live alone while hubby works overseas and I rely on myself for everything.
Thank god he is home soon and can help but in the meantime I am getting a little worried and I think I just need to add some more things to my diet.
I understand the fact that candida is the same thing no matter who it invades but we all have different symptoms from being on the diet and therefore don’t we have to deal with it differently sometimes? I mean at the end of the day, I want to survive…I don’t want to mess around where my heart is involved so it’s for this reason that I’m going to have to eat a few more things. So far with having the green apple and the oats I have had no reactions.
This is not about giving in because I just want to eat crap. I am worried for myself at this point.
I promise you that a green apple and a cup of gluten free oats won’t make any difference regarding to a cure or not. However,it is true that until more you restrict your diet, you are going to be with less symptomatic soon since the yeast colonies are decreasing. In fact, there are many diets that allow green apples and oats but don’t allow rutabaga and buckwheat.
All the anticandida diets I have seen, when elaborated with common sense, give results. If you go to the Modern Herbalist or Whole Approach to mention some, you gonna find testimonies of people telling “Waooo!!! This diet salved my life. This is the best treatment I have follow, and many positive testimonies. This happens with every single well planned protocol. All these protocols have positive testimonies and success stories left by the sufferers, and all have different diets. Of course, the diet Able suggests is an anticandida diet, and no bad at all. So, this diet will give you results like many other well planned diet. Until more carbohydrate restricted it be, the faster you get better. Even following the McCombs plan, that allows fruits, there are people who had written positive testimonies about it.
Anybody who sticks with an anticandida diet will get results, but it is important the discipline and be constant following it. Some people need more carbohydrate restriction than other because they have a more severe infection. Those get better faster with a diet such what Able suggests than the website diet, for instance. There are other that need to cut almost all carbohydrates to make progress. I have seen many different situations and cases battling this syndrome.
Unfortunately, we need to manage the diet according to our metabolic necessities, body weight, labor days, time of resting, and health. There isn’t an universal works for all anticandida diet, and ANY of them will eliminate the infection. This is more complicated than what the “natural” route websites claim.
When someone has done all I have done and know many many people who are battling it using different forms, some of them for years, that person realizes that an intestinal fungal overgrowth isn’t as simple as following a diet and taking some supplements.
