she mentioned giving me herbs for pain and said i should be eating beef stew with potatoes to keep me full she thinks thats why i binge but its more stress eating than hunger i dont know how much she knows about curing yeast but she said she can give sumthing for my tounge thrush and for pain she wants to look at what im taking and see if there all necassary and add in her herbs .
i dont know if i can even afford her herbs but just asking what u guys think of me letting her look over my protcol and ill let u know exactly what she offers when i find out nxt wk .

Herbs are relatively cheap but they are typically not super strong or super effective from my experience; in other words they are not potent but they do work.
I would not eat potatoes and beef and these items should not be eaten on the diet. She likely has some other opinion about what is healthy and doesn’t know about the diet.
Acupuncture has been a cornerstone of my treatment; you can go in feeling like crap and come out feelin like a million bucks. Its long lasting as well; you’ll feel a noticeable boost for a few weeks typically. Sometimes if you detox too much or the points are too effective, you’ll feel bad temporarily because of your liver.

Be sure that you can explain why you’re taking each of these supplements because she may ask why you’re taking some of them if she doesn’t know much about a Candida overgrowth and how to treat it.
By the way, the multi-vitamin isn’t part of the forum’s protocol.

Hey hope, a lot of the herbs that acupuncturist recommend are not good to take with antifungal herbs. If you tell me what she recommends, I will let you know what my lady says. She trained in China and she is an R.N.. Mine told me that she would hold off on the Chinese herbs with me until I was done with some of my antifungals. She said that if it was considered a “food” item, then it wouldn’t interfere, like garlic and coconut oil. Anybody recommending that you eat potatoes doesn’t really know what they are talking about, especially in association with candida so just take what they say with a grain of salt. My acupunturist has always told me to eat more vegetables and less carbs. She is not a meat eater but still eats fish. And she recommends getting good fats like coconut oil, avocado, etc…
I am so glad you are going though!! I am sure it will help with your stress level!February 21, 2013 at 11:15 pm #98214
k Katie thanks i will let u know and im thinking to hold off on her herbs also since she dosent seem to treat yeast overgrowth at all if anything if this helps me stick to diet better and lowers stress its worth it !
Able thanks i decided to continue to take my prenatal vitamin its a good multi vitamin instead of separate onesFebruary 21, 2013 at 11:31 pm #98221

She should be able to treat you for carb cravings and dampness. Stagnation in the liver qui is what causes some yeasties and depression/stress. Have her work on that. And find out what herbs, I can ask my lady and see what she says. There is no law that says you have to get them from your acupuncturist either. You could be able to find them at a chinese herbal online store. Just let me know hon. My acupuncturist is all about helping people and she understands that some people just don’t have a ton of money. She sells all her stuff at her cost to me.February 22, 2013 at 5:35 am #98251

I ate red potatoes today and I had no reaction at all. Felt sorta full finally for a few hours. Red are the best to have due to lower carbs I believe then others. But still are starchyFebruary 22, 2013 at 6:04 am #98254
I will mention that 2 her thanks Katie!
