Since I’m not following the website diet since I just discovered it and this forum tonight, I’ll just offer an opinion and tell you what I did when I did my first cleanse awhile ago, (and my current 2nd). I think I can see how you may want to do the cleanse part first without the herbs to clear your gut up to receive them better, don’t understand the 3 weeks of diet part without the herbs right away. I guess unless you’re really really sick, the initial purge symptoms might be hard to take maybe? But then you could just try taking the herbs at half dosage if its too much at first too…
I had gone to an Avureydic therapist’s health assessment at a spa and got diagnosed with Candida. He recommended I START with the Candigone kit – which contained the herbs and supplements, etc. That made a HUGE difference for me, I was bouncing off the walls with energy by the end, but felt sick flu-like body aches the first few days.
What you’ve got are antifungals I don’t know specifics on, but look into rotating the peau darco, hemp hearts and grapefruit extract every week or couple of weeks to avoid resistance if you’re taking it more than a few weeks. Meaning take a maybe two at a time, then a different two, etc.
I’m not sure what’s in the paragone and the totalpara so I can’t tell you for sure about that. But I can say to take the acilodophus all the way through, since its basically the good bacteria you’re trying to replace the Candida with. I’m not necessarily sure if its something that attacks the Candida at all or if its just something to help restore balance. I’ve been taking some form of probiotic (acidophilus pearls my naturopath’s recommended brand) for over 5 years now, changed my life for the better, will never stop taking it.
Also, I really really hate to say it, but vision and weight loss problems can be linked to diabetes too. So maybe try a diabetes test? Regardless Candida overgrowth can also lead to blood sugar problems and the doctor would probably put you on a reduced sugar diet anyway so this diet should help you regardless, and maybe even help prevent if you happen to be in the ‘at risk’ category. I have a friend with the rare privilege
Hope this helps, good health!
