Thanks so much Sarah. What you’ve said is really encouraging and I feel a bit more positive about it all. I guess I will start properly in a few days then, although am trying to get used to plain yoghurt at the moment (can’t do low fat if there’s nothing to sweeten it!).
Really glad xylitol is allowed, I think I can get that in my local supermarket. As for stevia I don’t think we have that in the UK but I’ll check and see if there’s something similar.
I’ve heard of die off…I’m not sure how bad it will get but I think about what I’ve been through without medication and trying to hold down a job at the same time and I almost feel like nothing could be worse than that! The intestinal problems whilst working full time were the most awful thing I’ve ever experienced. The acne and weight problems have shot down my confidence and I think I’m ready to give this 100% :). Are your die off symptoms worse than the effects of Candida? And how soon do they come in?
I’m going to start taking some psyllium husks to help with the bowel problems. I’ve read that taking Threelac you should have regular bowel movements or it will just make things worse, but I can’t do the detox on this site. It sounds way too much for me to do I think!
