stifoo… you totally crack me up when i read your posts. Reading others issues makes me want to press on. Its a constant and relentless battIe! Perhaps I can offer some advice because it seems we have a similar situation. I can relate so much to your posts! I reasearch and experiment in my past time.
Great on quitting smoking. Cigs are loaded with fungus.
I would NOT add bananas if you can help it. it is like miracle frow for the candida. There are other things you can get potassium from. i know this will help you because it helped me and you get a lot of potassium from it. drink 1 TBSP of apple cider vinegar (organic and not pasturized) “with the mother two times daily. cut it wih 6-8oz water.
Get the book “body ecology” by donna gates. She is so phenomonal. The book has really helped me!!!!! She focuses on the full and entire story– like the “missing piece” you had mentioned. There need to be particular steps taken. You are correct, diet alone will not work. She addresses this. Digestive enzymes help a lot. I take them before I eat anything. It helps. I have leaky gut as well and you are so correct when you say that it’s healing the gut. It took a long time to get this toxic, it will be a long battle to heal. Sucks but it is what it is. She also talks a ton about kefier and probiotic veggies… a ton about food combining which so many people don’t realize feeds the yeast too.Improper food combining makes gas and the yeast live off that too. If you have gas or bloating=yeast are being fed. Eating starch only with probiotic, fermented veggies or green vegetables (low starch vegs) only. eating 80 veggies and 20 % meat is highly suggested. Also eat meat with greens— no starch! Eat protein in the middle of your day and the safe grains (quinoa, amarth, oat bran?, millet at night/dinner) What also might help you is having a no sugar blended green with all kinds of things all under 1/2 tsp –clove, turmeric, pau d arco powder. THis is something I have done every morning for 3 weeks and it seems to be helping a ton. My rituals are the oregano oil (4 drops under tounge), apple cider vin. twice with water, coconut oil, pau d arco tea (drink this often throughout the day. It’s like you have to attack it from all angles, crooks and crannies.
I am taking yeast defense which helps too. It has a combo of all kinds or fungal fighters in it.
Juicing may help you because it is about healing the gut that is damaged and demineralized. I was always so constipated and just thought it was normal.
Explore old dude… Norman Walker– he is incredible and wrote so so so mnay small books on juicing and live to 117 years old. There is juicer he created called the NORWALK– get it norman walker.
I totally get how frustrating it is to be on such a strict diet and then with just a small slip up be screwed with all of the return of candida evil. But stay strong and journal everything you try. It is tedious but I know people that have had to heal themselves this way.
I hate to mention this but enemas every few days can help a lot and I am going to be trying the sauna 4-5 days a week soon. I know that helps a lot with the detox.
Well I must be going. Keep posting. Thanks for the reply and thanks for your tips. I will try the niacan. Did you get headaches by chance? Make sure you support your kidneys and liver in this whole process. Go slow and steady. It’s easy to get in a hurry as when you are feeling better you just want to feel better and better.
