I just wanted to update. I think I’m doing well 🙂
My tongue is very nearly thrush free and the cough and cold like symptoms that came out around day 3, during the detox have almost gone too.
I had a week off for the first part of it and on the first day back to work I felt a bit wobbly for a few hours, and since then I’ve been pretty much as normal minus the cough and cold mentioned above.
My sleeping is fantastic now, thanks to the Lemon Balm. I still cant get hold of Ashwagandha from the shop I want to buy it from but the anxiety is disappearing slowly i think. I seem to get this “back to school” dread feeling every evening about the day ahead, even if I have a day off with nothing to do. Thats weird and very unlike me. But I cant be sure thats down to this.
My period was two weeks late before I started this and now its even later (not pregnant). And I am pretty constipated. I manage to go a bit every day by having 2 tbsp’s of olive oil after every meal with a cup of hot water after and I also drink epsom salts every day, and nettle and peppermint tea. Together they seem to get me going a bit which is better than nothing.
I’m very pleased with my progress, so long as I’m doing it right. Nothing has changed to my food that I’ve posted before other than that I have eggs every day but the amount changes although never more than 4 per day. I had one small chicken drumstick last night which was delicious and I’m looking forward to some more next week.
I started taking the vitamins (calcium, magnesium, D3 etc) tonight and in a few days I’ll start on coconut oil as an antifungal.
Is it pretty much all good (bar a few minor slip up’s I assume) from here on?April 27, 2012 at 2:20 pm #80232

I am happy you survived those first tough days; as you get healthier it feels like you are a new person…so expect to be where you were at a year ago, two years, three years ago before you got ill with candida. I feel likes peeling the layers off of an onion, and when you get to the middle…that is the true you (sorta cheezy analogy I guess).
For me, its been a long slow healing process…probably because I had it so bad and I damaged a lot of organs by experimenting with drugs, alcohol, etc for years during and after college. I still feel some malaise here and there but I know its only temporary.
