because some of you where interested in my process and how I feel, I am going to tell you in some lines what is going on. Thank you for caring! I didnt write a lot here because I didnt want to confuse people with my experiments and didnt want to depress the folks here fighting strongly with the diet to beat that devil candida.
I was very faithful and strong for over two month on the diet but never came out of the die-off or felt and increase of better days. I had my good days but the bad days where growing in numbers. In the end I would have had a total collapse if I would not have learned to control my mind and calm myself. In the end I had nearly every day a panic attack lurking in the corner. Even I never had problems sleeping I was awoken every night with the sensation not to have enough air, in the end I had to sleep elevated with several pillows. I was dizzy for nearly 2 month and though that I needed to change something. I first broke the diet with fruits and then with wild rise, kidney beans, red lentils etc. Despite the fact that I did see a symptom free start of to kick me off to phase 2 of the diet I marched with full steps into it and beyond. I am not considering myself on the diet right now. I am still feeling shit and I too have some lighter moments but all in all its the same.
I kept going back to the doctor and he checked on Friday my heart to see if my chest tightness and the lack of air has to do with the heart but it looks good. Blood pressure is good, Heart beat is good. Everything is fine but I feel bad. Now they are moving into the tests for HIV and the like, some parasites tests and I guess after that is the turn for the mental health doctors for me.
My searching and testing led me back to the histamine intolerance but I still have candida strongly in my mind. I am sure that I have candida but as it messes up the intestines and in the intestines is the base for DAO production too. The high amount of histamine in my blood could be an indicator too of candida.
My plan of action now is this: First I am going to save some money for a ELISA test to check what foods I am allergic too. Then I am going to save money to have a candida test to really see if I have it or not. I noticed that if I dont get a grip on the dance of symptoms I am going to loose the battle.
I noticed that I can do any diet, suffer for month without wishing to turn back…that is as long as I know where I am marching and what is going on.
This in the end I didnt know any more and stopped the battle.
I have to get it clear to know for example if I have a reaction from Grapefruit-seed extract because the anti-fungal is working and I have a massive die-off. Or do I suffer greatly, not die-off but an histamine reaction! If it is die-off, then I should continue. If its a histamine reaction I have to stop taking it. Because I don’t know I am weakened in my minds ability to fight the battle.
Dear friends, thank you for asking how I feel and in short I only can say that I am hanging in but not feeling good.
