Hi again, you’re doing everything right as far as eating and supplements. I wonder if you’re feeling how you are because you’re actually having die off symptoms. If I were you I would take a maximum dose of echinacea to boost up your immune system, keep taking the liver flush drink every night and also milk thistle for further liver support. I took milk thistle anyway before I even considered that candida was my problem because they are supposed to have good anti ageing properties!! They really won’t do you any harm.
Don’t know about you but my list of supplements seems to get longer all the time. I take 9 different things every day!! And after having said that make sure you’re getting enough magnesium, it’s vital for enzyme function and you really want your digestive enzymes to do their job as best they can at the moment.
My herbal “bible” and what I always use for reference at work is a book called the green pharmacy by dr james a duke. His main recommendation is echinacea and I quote “It works by stimulating the white blood cells to gobble up yeast organisms, a process known as phagocytosis”. He also said that in a test in Germany women taking only antifungals 60% suffered recurrences but those given antifungals and echinacea that figure went down to 10%. It’s a great medicine but buy it in tincture form not as a pill as it keeps its strength better when preserved that way. It is a tiny amount of alcohol but the benefits will far outweigh any harm the alcohol may do.
And I would take your ambien as well if you need it. Your immune system will only be weakened further by a lack of sleep.
I don’t suppose colonics are for everyone. I just want to do it because I believe its the candida which has stopped me from losing weight for so long and I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been so the thought of losing 7 – 10 lbs in an hour is very tempting and to hell with the embarrassment!!
Take care and I hope you can get some sleep and start to feel a bit better soon. xx
