I tested ginger past few days …. I continued eating it. Half way through it was gone. I finished the meal to the end. I did feel a bit crappy, not too much, in the afternoon, but it seemed more like a die-off (not sure if ginger can cause it or something else did it)
Concerning ginger’s antifungal properties; in a study, ginger exhibited strong antifungal properties against various fungi, including strains that were resistant to presecription antifungals. So the ginger was probably the cause of the mild die-off.
To expain to those who may not be aware, Arijana is not experiencing strong die-off symptoms right now because she’s decreased the population of the infesation significantly already therefore cutting down the amount of toxins released and as well as the degree of die-off.
Thanks for all the information in your post.
Thanks Able! I kind of figured since nettle tea and lemon water helped very quickly, plus the walk after lunch. The symptoms were very mild. Finally after three months of treatment I can tell them apart hahahaha…
I think before I would confuse die-off with food reactions etc. My anxiety at times is probably what caused the reaction in the first place (I would be worried and scared of test foods). My anxiety is pretty much gone since I got better so now I will try everything at least twice and once in evenings at home as at that time I am generally much calmer than in mornings.
For everyone new reading this post, IMO staying calm and analyzing your symptoms with a clear mind is important. Also, do not play with your diet until your symptoms are almost gone and you are stable (I did it and it didn’t go well at all!). You will not know what’s die-off and what’s a food reaction, you will aggravate your bodies and mind by doing so and get overwhelmed and stressed, all of which is not good for your treatment. Out of the food list that is presented to you (no matter which version of the diet you are following), make up your own list of foods that you can eat without any problems. Stick with that for a while until you start improving and you don’t have much die-off or other symptoms. Plus there is a learning curve with recognizing symptoms and nobody can really teach you that as it’s your body and your own symptoms. After you are stable for awhile, you can start testing one by one item and you will be able to clearly tell what your reactions were.
Good luck everyone!
