tnx for your reply
One of the most difficult part with this infection is to know the right time to release the diet. It is very difficult to know when there aren’t more fungal candida colonies in the gut able to regrowth and when to know that the immune system and the competitive flora be able to hold candida in its unicellular form.
Both books you read are very informative, but my experience says me that Dr. Crook didn’t have a well elaborated diet, still allowing food that feed the fungus.
Another thing is to reverse the immune tolerance it is necessary enough time to allow the immune system re-activates against yeast again. It took time to the overgrowth to suppress the immune system. Then, it will take time to recover it again.
I advice you to keep away of those books diet, instead to follow a more restrictive diet such as this one in this forum.
When you be asymptomatic again, I wish it be soon, don’t return to food that feed the fungus for long time. I also think you should continue the antifungals for long enough after the symptoms have disappeared.
I have relapsed two times after being asymptomatic for 2 or 3 months because I discontinued the diet. Now, I am working in more areas such as detoxification, chelation, and flora recovering with fecal transplants to see if some day I can release the diet and don’t experiment any relapse. The good thing is this time I am not hurried so I don’t care if this will take 2 or 3 years.
I dont think the diet Crook suggested was any different than the one here. Just veggies and herbs. I know now I should stay on the diet longer, or even forever. That’s fine. But the hard thing is getting started because it will make me feel even worse than I already do. Guess I just have to suck it up. But it gets so hard that I cannot do anything but stay in bed all day.
