Hi ya, raster.
I’ve read the McCombs protocol in the past, and I have to say I can’t agree with his overall ideas for many reasons.
Your quote was, “He also states that if you do the diet without the sweating treatment, then you won’t really recover from candida fully because all of the toxins will remain within the body.”
Ok, that’s an excellent example of one of his ridiculous theories. What he’s saying in effect is that perspiration adds to the actual cure of the Candida infestation itself and you can’t cure it without sweating, and that’s the ridiculous part. Although, as I’ve stated on the forum before, sweating is an excellent way to remove the toxins of die-off symptoms, but it has nothing to do with treating the infestation itself or destroying the Candida albicans.
A sauna is a perfect tool, but if one is not available, soaking in a very hot tub of water for at least 20 minutes in a well heated bathroom will work as well, as long as it’s warm enough to cause perspiration (so the sweating/toxins part he got right).
“He also states that tons of exercise isn’t really good because it suppresses the immune system; another fact I did not know before.”
You and I discussed heavy exercising and the immune system not long ago, at that time I stated that this type of exercise would only suppress the immune system more, and at that time you agreed. This is not new information at all, it’s really just common sense
I’m glad that you brought this subject up; extensive perspiration is definitely a plus when it comes to die-off disasters.
