Katy, I guess I didn’t realize that you can’t see much of an improvement at all. Perhaps it was indeed the brown rice, yogurt and some other items which kept you from seeing a difference in the beginning from the diet alone, plus, correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems that I remember you were also eating sweet potatoes, nuts, and soy milk. Is that correct?
At any rate, as you said, I believe that the lack of a probiotic was the biggest hold up. As far as making any changes, I wouldn’t make any at all in the diet or supplements including the coconut oil since you are about to start the probiotic.
By doing this, we will have something to compare any changes to, and we’ll know that the changes are stemming from the probiotic and not a change in diet.
Listen, don’t worry about being stuck (as you say) in the whole food aspect, because that’s exactly what it takes in order to avoid the foods you shouldn’t be eating right now; that means continually focusing on as well as knowing exactly what food is going into your body every time you eat. This is why I recommend that people avoid going out to eat for as long as they can when starting the diet. When you go out to eat, you have no idea really as to what you may be feeding your body.
As far as the die-off symptoms are concerned, does the bottle of your Molybdenum state how many mg or mcg are in a drop? Also, do the dosage instructions say anything about increasing the amount to more than one drop?
By the way, I happen to think you’re doing fine as far as staying with the treatment, it isn’t an easy thing to do, and I have to commend you for sticking with it all.
