To my understanding it’s always going to be a catch 22. The adrenals and thyroid get fatigued because of everything else going on (heavy metals, candida, parasites), but doing the anti-candida diet (ACD) with anti-fungals and everything else or even independently will also put strain on your endocrine system.
That’s why it’s best to do the healing in conjunction with one another. You’ll have horrible days where you feel you need to throw in the towel, but you also will figure out what works best for you.
In my case, when I began the ACD I didn’t get this huge relief of symptoms I’ve read some other people experienced, instead my energy levels were even lower but they were steady (I’m not getting the extreme lows as often). After 7 weeks on raster’s strict diet (with the exception of nuts here and there) I still feel worn out, but what has brought me this far without falling apart at the seams was doing I.V. vitamin therapy; it really gave me the boost I needed. Honestly, in a day I went from hardly being able to walk to going for a 3 km runs. For me the energy doesn’t last the whole week, but it does help me get things I need to get done and helps me fight this. You can also get homeopathic adrenal support (don’t know about thyroid support) in these I.V.’s.
