I totally love this thread! I am a newbie too this is my first post. Thank everyone for sharing. And helping. I had my gallbladder out last summer and recently a hysterectomy with major repairs to my pelvic floor. Not sure when the Candida got started but I have it horribly now. I have a been reading everything I can on this topic and it is confusing with some of the protocols being so extreme…. fasts, cleanses, tests, colonics, raw milk, no milk! I have purchased several books …the one on this website eBook was too hard to do unless you are not working and take no medications … I have MS, Lyme, high blood pressure, rosacea, and high cholesterol. Currently reading 10 Days To Optimal Health. I decided since I just had all of my organs sutured back into their right places and opted for no transvaginal mesh not to do anything too extreme. Going to give up coffee sugar alcohol … Basically just eat the good veggies and lean organic protein until I am out of the 6 week recovery period and maybe ask my doctor… though the reg MDs may think I am crazy. Any in put appreciated.
