I just wanted to remind everyone that iodine is on the Vitamins & Supplements post and is shown as part of the protocol. I know how easy it is to miss or forget about one seemingly small detail of the protocol, but iodine is a necessary and even life-sustaining mineral. I would try to obtain an iodine supplement as soon as you can.
Quote: “If you’re using sea salt without iodine, you should take an iodine supplement. “Liqui-Kelp” made by World Organic is a quality brand and sold at most health and vitamin stores. A general mineral supplement with selenium should also be considered as a positive factor in the overall protocol.”
I’m not trying to say that this is your problem as it could simply be the Candida returning because of the raspberries. Actually the strict diet has a few foods to test way before you should start testing berries or other sugary foods; For example, tomatoes, 1/2 Granny Smith apple, and home-cooked dried beans; and remember, these foods should be tested at least two full weeks apart, and more time would be even better. But basically, it really depends on when you test the first food item. I think the first time I went off the diet I tested peanut butter and red apples; when my infestation reinstated itself stronger than before, I didn’t try to introduce another food until I had been completely symptom-free for a total of three months; that’s totally symptom-free for a period of three months. I imagine this plays a large role as far as why my infestation has never returned. Yeah, I know, “Just shut up, Able!”
Take care of yourself, Teach.
Ok, again I have to claim what an idiot I am….I never remember reading this. Off to buy some stuff. I guess the better I got the more I slack off and then get slapped right away with something new.
I’m wondering in all honesty if I should start the diet all over again. Go back to square one. I’m so mad and still frustrated that I’m not further along then I should be. Then again…I have the will power of a 3 year old in a candy store.
Lets see…almonds, cashews, dried cherries what are all of the stupid mistakes I have made that have caused pretty serious set backs…
Life was good when all I was eating was egg plant and cabbage with oninons and olives. I think I’m going to start over…any thoughts?
Should I make sure I’m taking my molybdenum for three days first before I start over.
Thanks for your advice as always.
This lump in my neck is freaking me out…giving me quite a bit of stress as I let my mind wander about what the heck else could be going wrong.
