Thanks so much for your patient and informative reply, raster. I know I asked a lot of questions.
Regarding your response to #3, you state that I will know I am developing resistance when I experience little or no die-off symptoms. It’s hard for me to tell whether my die-off symptoms have subsided because I had to back off on antifungals (started out too strong) or because the Candida is developing resistance. I am still experiencing some flu-like symptoms, but not nearly as bad as before.
I had been coughing up dark yellow phlegm (excuse the detail) and coughing a lot, and both those things have subsided significantly but not completely. Should I assume that’s still die off, then? I don’t know how to tell.
Also, I didn’t have (or wasn’t diagnosed with) IBS, or another serious illness before I started this process, so I can’t even measure my healing in a quantitative way.
I started this diet and antifungal regimen because I had chronic BV despite trying everything, and doctors just weren’t helping. Those symptoms have subsided somewhat (also due to my simultaneous use of a product called FloraFemme, I believe). I also had fatigue, brain fog, and intense sugar cravings. And all those things have also subsided. I have also been able to resume my workouts.
I think this means I am on the right track. I guess I am just worried because I didn’t start off following the protocol as recommended, and I did go VERY strong on the antifungals right out of the gate.
And, yes, I am tapering off coffee. It’s making me sick. And I have SF722 waiting in my Cart on Amazon. Just spacing out my purchases a bit.
Thank you again for your time and support.
