    Do you eat enough protein? Green veggies like kale,broccoli and cauliflower have protein, also hemp seeds are great! do you eat every four hours? you shoud this should keep ur energy levels in better shape also good fats like coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil and fish oil capsules are great! i also drink green match twice a day, is highly antioxidant and it does not spike sugar!!! best healing vibes!

    Dr. Mccomb’s has a blood sugar protocol if you want to check it out:

    I’d try to eat bigger meals, with 3-4 courses each meal. I would eat until you are very full like thanksgiving.

    cinnamon (pills) helps regulate blood sugar issues, as well as being an antifungal (search for dvjorge’s post showing the medical research behind cinnamon’s antifungal properties)

    I’ve been struggling with blood sugar issues and its driving me crazy. I keep crashing and don’t know what to do!?!? I am eating ALL of the time…I’m not sure I can do this diet any longer and I’m scared all of this torture was for nothing!
    I eat chicken all day, almonds, veggies, brown rice…
    It’s been since June and blood sugar seems to be getting worse!

    Why are you eating brown rice? This will feed the candida, and thus fuel your hypoglycaemia.

    My natural dr said brown rice was ok to eat. He says you need some complex carbs as slow burning fuel.

    If I were you I’d cut out the brown rice.
    When I did this, my symptoms stopped.

    Your body will adjust to a low carb diet eventually, and you will have no blood sugar drops if you eat no carbs (and no caffeine).

    It is the brown rice giving you blood sugar swings. It can only be carbs (or stimulants) that give you swings, so it must be the rice.

    Eat more eggs, etc.
    When I need extra energy, I eats nuts and I am fine (it is better to soak them first to kill mould). Some people, however, get symptoms when they eat nuts.

    Bezzy,

    I’m not sure if you are on the initial cleanse or the actual diet. If you are on the cleanse that is a very tough period of time as it isn’t recommended to eat eggs. If you aren’t past this point maybe it’s best to get a week off from work.

    If you are past that point, I have found a combination of the eggs, coconut bread helps quite a bit. I also found that having some warm lemon water helps give me a little energy. Are you eating those? You could also try Spirulina, which is supposed to provide good energy. It has a very high protein content.

    You really are only supposed to be eating Chicken once a week. Almonds are considered a phase 2 item and should be soaked first due to mold. I don’t see brown rice listed on the strict diet list. Are you following the strict diet list or the diet on the website?

    Most of us are following a strict diet put together by the moderators on this forum. Certain foods such as almonds and brown rice are not allowed on this list since many others have proven to have issues with these items in the past.

    IMO I would give the diet the diet a fair chance and follow it properly first. Many general practice doctors don’t even believe Candida exists. You probably would fair better with a Naturopath, but you should find a recommended one. If you follow the diet properly and things get better then you know.

    My adrenal issues didn’t correct until I started taking high doses of vitamin C. I would suggest taking it until the point of diarrhea. I take about 18,000 mg a day and it really helps keep the adrenal fatigue away.

    I gradually increased the dose of Vitamin C to 4000 mg a day, but had to bring it down to 2000 mg because of the excessive acid reflux it was giving me and thus the resultant enamel erosion.

    The flu like symptoms flared up again as soon as I brought down the dose, but I had no choice. I wish I could take higher doses of Vitamin C, because I know it was helping me a lot. Any suggestions anyone?

    Healinglight, you might try using kefir or yogurt to help soothe your stomach from acid reflux. I don’t know if it will help or not (I’m a newbie) but I know that drinking milk helps, and the yogurt and kefir are the dairy we are allowed to have. Good luck!

    Thanks. I have been taking lots of yogurt but that did not help. Kefir grains are not available here in India.

    I take Vitamin C derived from Ester C which is non-acidic. Solgar makes an excellent formulation along with necessary bioflavinoids:

    http://www.iherb.com/Solgar-Ester-C-Plus-1000-mg-Vitamin-C-180-Tablets/8813

    I take 3-4 on a regular day (1,000 mg each) and often either on an empty stomach or with a meal doesnt matter. This is your best bet and surely a high quality Vitamin C.
