Thanks for the response. I guess I have a tendency to try to do things as quickly and thoroughly as possible, which isn’t always the best approach with Candida. I also suffer with adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, generalized anxiety disorder, and low DHEA, estradiol, estriol, and progesterone hormones (menopause), IBS, leaky gut, and allergies to dairy, eggs, corn, oats, tea, black pepper, etc. So I felt like “crap” before I even started the Candida diet.
I tend to try to do things “perfectly” – which contributes to the anxiety (which stresses the adrenals, which impacts the immune system, which leads to leaky gut, allergies, and candida, etc.). So basically I’m my own worst enemy.
As far as vitamins and various other supplements go, which ones do you recommend as most important? I’ve been making a list of the various different things mentioned as helpful on the forum and I’m running out of paper. I’d like to focus on the more important ones first (since it can get quite expensive) before moving on to the lesser important items. Do you have any advice as to where to start adding things – other than those recommended in the basic protocol?
Thanks for your help.
