August wrote: I believe I have a candida overgrowth, from the symptoms I’ve researched. My tongue has warning signs and, a lot of the time, I simply feel unwell. I’m a 24 year old male who experiences “hot flash” like episodes, stomach issues, chronic fatigue- etc… I don’t drink often at all, but last year I had to take 4-6 courses of antibiotics for sinus infections, stomach issue- etc… which I think could have been quite bad for having a candida overgrowth.
My concerns is that, if this is such a well documented phenomenon on all of the websites I’ve visited, and so many over the counter suppliments have been made for this, then why does the medical community (doctors) seem to be so clueless about this horrible and crippling intruder which seems to easy to spot in any blood test?
I’m about to start a treatment program (actually the one outlined on this website, by following all of the rules) but it makes me SO nervous that so many people are experiencing horrible, horrible die-off symptoms. All of the posts I see are “when will this end?” and “I can only hope that one day I’ll be candida free”, but I don’t see any “I beat it! I’m cured, everything is perfect I feel WONDERFUL!”. It makes me nervous to think that perhaps candida levels are naturally high in our bodies and we shouldn’t tamper with killing them and releasing the toxins into our body.
Could someone, or everyone, please quiet my fears? If I follow the diet EXACTLY and take the suppliments and detox as it says, will I actually feel better, or will I just be putting myself through pain and discomfort only to have it come back? Is it ACTUALLY candida causing these problems in people’s lives, or is it just a misunderstoof culprit? Are there people out there who feel 100% better constantly and can claim so? Please rain your expertise down upon me!
Thank you so much, I’ll be stalking this post for replies. 🙂
You have come to the right place. You and I sound much the same in our journey. However, I had one (not even a full does) round of antibiotics that gave me oral thrush. Dr didn’t know quite what to do. Gave me nystatin and on my way. Then I found this amazing web site. I started the diet…only to find out that Able and Raster have made a diet similar to the one found on the website but stricter. Ask Able900 for diet. The other diet on web site allows food that feeds the beast.
Once you have the correct diet follow the protocal. That is the key. Every time I stray off I get a reaction in my mouth. The die off varies for everyone but make sure your taking the supplements they suggest prior to starting the diet thus the die off will not be so bad.
I can tell you the way you feel when you come out of this is sooooooo much better than where you are. You will forget about the die off as I forgot about the child labor soon after. It gets so much better. I don’t think I’m healed but my life is so much better. I have energy, I can communicate with other. I had such bad brain fog etc. It is so worth every step of the battle. You will find many here who can’t cope, they talk about the die off and then we don’t hear from them. They get better and don’t need help so off they go. Sometimes they come back and share their success stories.
Hang in there. You will be so thankful in the end.
I’m 95% there and life is soo much better than it was in October 🙂
