I take a homeopathic that is primarily used to heal my leaky gut. However, foods high with FOS can heal the gut as well. If you get a product called inulin (miracle fiber), you can add it to your foods such as coconut bread and it will help heal the gut also.
The homeopathic I took is called digestive enzyme liquidscence, however I do not think it’ll be easy to find it on the internet or even a vitamin store. I got it prescribed to me by my naturopath doctor and don’t recommend the use of homeopathic medicine because I am not a doctor myself. However, any bitters is an alternative way to heal the gut, and you should try to get some if possible. Orange bitters, lemon bitters, spanish bitters, swedish bitters, grape bitters all work. I wouldn’t worry too much about any small amount of alcohol found in the bitters because your body should be able to recover and get past any negatives in the alcohol.
Thank you raster, I will see if I get a homeopath on my case too, we have one 2 hours drive from me. Which food is high on FOS? I am following the diet plan stage 1 from you and able here on the forum.
Raster how did you read your symptoms when you where still sick?
some of the reactions are good because we kill the candida, but the same symptoms can be read as a inflammation and allergic reaction of the gut. Lets say you eat garlic, and get a heavy reaction with dizziness and stomach pain, itching skin in eyes and anus, pain in the muscles, spasms in the bladder and diarrhoea. Was it now a good reaction, meaning we did a heavy blow to the candida, and a heavy die-off which means keep going with it as we are killing off the enemy?! Analyse of the situation would lead to:
Plan of action eat garlic.
Or does it tell me. Stop with it, you are putting something in your system you are allergic too and your weak and leaky gut cant handle, he needs to heal and gets a rest.
Plan of action: Stop eating garlic!
I have the same battle in my mind with all the food, like the wonderful coccus bread. I love it, and eat it with eggs or avocado salat. After it I am having a little dizziness and very little stomach pain. Here again the same game of confusion, I stick it through until the candida is starved to death or I stop with that too because its an reaction for a wounded gut?
I have the feeling that this is the only and most profound problem I still have. There is no hunger, no needing of anything nothing, I am all content with everything only that dam confusion about the way to battle on different front lines and different symptoms. Kefir and yoghurt is great in the battle against candida, its great too for building up a good intestines flora so I should and want to eat it a lot. But the wounded and out of shape guts cant handle them.
Do you get a picture of my confusion?
thanks a lot!
