Sorry, I should elaborate a bit more. Every other day I see someone come onto this forum saying its not working etc so I want to be sure I can give you the right advise and help you onto a recovery.
Let me just tell you what I’ve been doing and eating so you will have some info to go off of.
Every morning I eat two eggs, and two links of sausage. I drink ONLY lemon water with stevia and Teeccino with stevia and half and half. For lunch or dinner I eat veggies (mostly cauliflower, broccoli, or asparagus) and have some chicken breast. I also eat chicken on a large salad. I have been eating a little tomato, not much. I put cucumber on my salads. For a dressing I have a measured tablespoon of home made Ranch dressing mixed with plain yogurt, never any more than that and I only eat that Ranch maybe 3 times a week, adding up to 3 tablespoons per week.
I was eating peanuts regularly but I cut them out. Now when I want a nut, I just get some pumpkin seeds as I’ve heard they are okay on the diet.
I drink at least 64 oz. of lemon water a day, usually more.
The supplements I’m taking are:
spirulina (NOW brand)
Threelac (2-3 a day)
and sometimes some OregaMax (100% raw oregano) (I take this sometimes depending on my symptoms and how good I feel)
Also I take Kyolic, a garlic supplement with other Candida cleanse herbs
When my sausage runs out, I’m planning on going without it for a few weeks and sticking to eggs. I want to do a two week cleanse with mostly veggies, eggs and if I can, some plain yogurt with Stevia. But I don’t know if that’s allowed on the cleanse.
I will also be starting Candex soon. It has great reviews and a friend is mailing me some to try.
I have to stick with the Threelac as my probiotic until I use it up and can afford to buy the other variety mentioned here.
As for pinworms? I don’t have them. My itch isn’t just at night. Plus, I get small smooth bumps around my bottom that will itch terribly until I scratch, then they form a welt which oozes clear liquid for a few hours. That turns into a scab of sorts which will get thick and take several days to crust and peel. Once it’s peeled off down to a thinner skin layer again, it starts all over again. That is on the cheek area closer to the actual rectum. The rectum itches as well, but doesn’t scab over like that. It’s almost like Eczema. It acts like athletes foot and the itch is identical, so it seems like yeast to me. The one thing that works is ice packs but I can’t exactly go around with ice on my butt all day. On any given day, I have about 12 square inches of rash and scab down there, sometimes more.
I’m considering a parasite cleanse though, I’m pretty sure there some critters in there.
How do I get adequate amounts of protein daily if I’m not eating meat for two weeks? Eggs are good but only provide a few calories and a bit of protein. With only 6 grams of protein each, I’d have to eat 8 eggs a day or something like that.
I really hope I can eat plain yogurt during the cleanse, it keeps me sane.
I’ve never like avocados, I hate celery, eggplant, and artichokes.
So that’s about it…other than the water I drink is filtered and left out all night to get rid of the chlorine.
Personally I see quite a bit wrong with this diet already, others will make their suggestions, but please find a few of mine.
1. Sausage – can you elaborate on brand etc a bit more. Some sausages are a big no no. I would consider avoiding them for a few weeks or cutting them out completely for now.
2. How often do you eat chicken and is it organic – I eat a small portion of chicken every 5 days right now, if your eating it everyday you will be pumping your already damaged system with ammonia
3. Dressing – again, I would avoid at the start. Another thing that could be feeding candida.
4. Pumpkin seeds – all seeds don’t really agree with me, plus they are not on the protocol so I have taken them out until stage 2/3
5. Lemon water – I drink three glasses from three lemons a day, you don’t want to over do it as the lemon water still contains sugar.
I think you need to re-look over your current diet, as I think this is the issue here. You mention the two week cleanse, I personally couldn’t do the cleanse so it really is up to you. I don’t see Virgin Coconut Oil or Molybdenum in your list either – I can’t stress how important these are!! Esp Molybdenum, it really does help die-off symptoms – I feel like I have the damn flu today and it is helping.
Eggs are currently my main source of sustenance as my body can break them down easily. I eat a lot of eggs per day to keep me going. This need to be your main source for at least the first four weeks. I’ve started doing a lot more gym work recently as well and I even drink pasteurized egg whites after a big session as a source of protein to repair muscles.
As far as yogurt goes, again avoid store bought until your on the road to recovery. It’s considered a test item four weeks into treatment.
I really want you to read the protocol again, because the title of your post is “I don’t know what to believe anymore”…. The diet you have posted is not the diet on here which is making me (personally) better.
That is my two cents worth, I don’t think your going to make much improvement unless you read the below and effectively start right from the start. That way you can really track your progress….
PS I’m not trying to be mean or horrible, I’m being really truthful. It took reading posts like this to understand why my original diet was wrong….
