Frankly, I would avoid the Pau d’arco tea. Try Ground Flax Seeds, taking 1 tablespoon 2-3 times daily in a glass of water. It’s extremely important that you drink plenty of water. You can also purchase milled flax seed and make bread from this perhaps mixing it with coconut flour and/or brown rice bran flour. Spectrum is a good brand but of course there are other brands as well. This is usually sold in health food stores but it’s also sold online at Amazon.

I would start with just one pill a day because there’s an excellent chance of die-off symptoms occurring with a high count probiotic. I assume you have Molybdenum on hand to lessen those symptoms. You should start the Molybdenum a few days before the probiotic.
As far as starting the antifungals, you should wait at least a week after starting the probiotic before starting an antifungal.
Your questions are answered below:
1. how many eggs per day can I have?
Reply: As long as they’re organic eggs, as many as you need to supply you with the amount of protein you feel comfortable with.
2. are almonds o.k. to eat?
Reply: During these first two weeks, personally I would avoid nuts in general; however, if you wish to have them I would treat them as a test item. This means to have only two or three nuts the first time, wait at least 36 hours before having more to see if you have a reaction to them. If you do, you should avoid them for at least 10 days before trying them again. The same is true with any new food you add to your diet.
3. how many calories should I be eating?
Reply: I don’t know your height or weight, but I’m sure you know approximately how calories many you could have before the diet in order to retain the weight you wish to keep. This should remain the same as before.
4. can I take my regular vitamins and supplements? (Mega Food 100%whole food women’s one daily, l-tryosine, astaxanthin ultra, Barleans organic total omega 3-6-9)
Reply: Yes, definitely.
