I’m actually just going by how sick I am. I feel like I spent the last 12 months in a Candida Detox, constantly feeling horrible. Then I switch to the GAPS diet and all I get is intense die off, starting from day 1. I haven’t been able to work, or think straight FOR LIKE EVER! The brain fog seems to be getting worse, and worse.
Raster, that’s a good point, maybe I don’t have the enzymes to digest them.
I’m sorry you’re feeling so bad, Mrs C. If its an consolation, I’m not doing at all well either and have more or less given up the idea that candida is my only or even main issue. I’m now suspecting a viral (most likely) or bacterial (my GP is currently testing me for lyme) infection is the cause of my issues.
I know this isn’t an antidote to problems, but have you considered trying mindfulness?
Mindfulness has been shown to have a number of beneficial traits that can really support you in your current predicament. First, it will allow you to significantly reduce any stress levels associated with your current situation. This is an important factor in enabling your body to rest and recover. Second, it will increase your ability to concentrate, even if it does not directly alleviate the cause of your concentration issues. Finally, mindfulness has recently been shown to positively alter gene expression to increase the efficiency of cell mitochondria – thus giving you more energy.
From a spiritual standpoint as well, it can be such a healing and liberating experience just to rest in the present moment.
If you’re interested let me know and I can point you in the direction of some good books.
