Raster! Sounds like someone who truly understands my predicament then! I myself believe my candida was triggered off by my last fortnight in Ibiza 6 months ago when I suddenly found myself feeling like a kid (who unfortunately already had candida) in the worlds best candy shop!! My candida would have been caused by a few courses of antibiotics I had taken here and there just before I went to Europe and while I was in Europe, but it was triggered by my last couple of weeks in ibiza when I just went wild and didn’t injest anything aside from cocaine and (those god-forsaken) red bull vodkas!! It was my drinking them again a couple of weeks ago at a house party that then instigated my furious Internet searches trying to figure out what the hell was wrong with me. I had chosen to drink them because I felt like I wanted to get rid of the brain fog for the night so I could interact socially with people I hadn’t seen for a while and also have some energy to dance and actually enjoy myself!! I ended up flaked out on the couch feeling like I was having a come down from a drug. All I wanted to do was lie there like a zombie and watch the world go by. Today I will be going back to the same house to celebrate Australia day but I will be doing it sober! (something many Australians think of as blasphemy! Haha!). But I am determined to give myself the best possible chance of being able to drink in Rio De Janeiro (a trip I have looked forward to since I was a kid) without ended up flaked out somewhere this time..
Maybe on days I want to drink I could have a couple of syntol before and then after?
I actually don’t feel like I am experiencing die-off effects. I have actually been feeling pretty good since about day 3 of the detox! (aside from a slight hiccup when I ate natural Greek yoghurt midway through week two thinking it was okay to eat :/ ). Plus I have not had any negative effects from (?prematurely) beginning to eat carbs like quinoa and almond meal. I know everybody is different so maybe I’m already magically cured?!? =D .. Just joking..
Able I understand the colonizing thing now. I have read that S.Boulardii is prescribed to deal with the Leaky Gut Syndome which is a part of the syndrome we have so in my mind I am using the S.Boulardii to plug the holes the candida have drilled into my mucosa. This at least should help block the direct transmission of toxins into my bloodstream. Then on the other war front I am doing all I can to kill the candida albicans through other means. You don’t seem too fond of colloidal silver and I am worried that I am killing the good guys too so I may discontinue its use once I finish the bottle..
