Well, it is my 3rd week into the strict diet and I see improvement (knock on the laminate counter vs wood). I have been tempted to cheat but refrained.
I have no symptoms of candida sufferers (or do I?) just skin lesions from taking antibiotics from a case of [http://www.dermnetnz.org/acne/folliculitis.html ] Mine is a much milder version of the pics (except for the 1st few weeks) like the ones on the right, but it is noticeable to me and sometimes you don’t want to go out. It is only happening if I eat something with sweet, carbs, or lots of nuts. I guess it feeds the yeast. I was also unaware of the starchy vegetables I was eating and sodium in veggie chips. So, I cut those out, and get my EVCO, have veggies & eggs for breakfast (sometimes oat bran), lunch: some chicken w/ chopped onions, bell peppers, and my skin is looking really well & smoother. A confidence booster for sure.
My problem is I know it is not sustainable for me. I have always had an occasional gourmet pizza, 70% dark chocolate bar, pita bread, granola, love ethnic spicey foods, seasonal deserts you have during Thanksgiving/Xmas, flour-less bread tuna sandwiches, 100% pure juices, etc. I will change my fruit sugar intake, my sweet bread intake, vegetable starch intake, but some other things I do not want to limit. I have lived this way for about 30 years and just don’t think nor do I want to be on an extreme diet for months due to a bacterial infection and sparse use of ABs to recover. I never believed in drugs anyway. I look at the doxycycline bottle and it basically 90% full, although I did use maybe 30% of the 1st one. Of course I avoid burger and fried chicken chains but I always put my habits to about 75% extreme.
I hope to recover with the EVCO, Probiotics, this diet and reintroduce slowly some of the normal foods I ate.
I know others have tougher challenges here but I just thought I’d chime in and say Thanks for educating me on healthy foods to eat and learning what was contributing to my skin condition.
