Anxiety was the first thing to go for me when I committed to the diet/protocol, and it’s the first thing to come back when I’m having a bad day. Irrational, ridiculous, unfounded anxiety. I had thought that I had inherited it from my mother and I had a mental illness, but apparently it’s just candida :pMarch 11, 2013 at 11:22 pm #100372

GABA and Taurine are safe natural amino acids that help to reduce stress and anxiety. I use them both on children I care for.
I take them both at night with Melatonin and now have wonderful sleeps…I use to have to take high dose prescription pills for more then 5 years (before I knew what was causing all my illnesses)
Take care…hope this helps

If people have an illness a lot of times anxiety comes with it. I have bad anxiety and PTSD. I take clorazapam every night to go to sleep and when needed. I started acupunture to see if that helps to get off the clorazapam. Anxiety is horrible. Working out helps my anxiety but knowing I have something wrong with me makes it worseMarch 12, 2013 at 12:48 am #100392

You can take an herb called Ashwagandha (two or three capsules a day) for the stress and anxiety. If you have problems sleeping because of this, take 5HTP, you can take up to 100 mg three times a day.
it was right after the midol that my anxiety got so much worse to !
Midol isn’t going to help your situation since the symptoms are coming from the Candida overgrowth, in fact, it’ll only make them worse, as you’ve seen.

Hope! You got your period!! YAY!
I know what you mean about the intense pain. My first few periods on the diet were HELL! It gets better, I promise. .
I was just realizing this month that all my PMS is gone, now when my period shows up I’m shocked because I honestly don’t feel it coming.
I think the anxiety is a common die off symptom. The truth is it’s so hard to tell the difference between die off and symptoms. Just keep on your path don’t stray from your diet and you’ll be able to tell. Also maybe make a note of it with a food diary, like did you get anxiety because you ate rice? It can go back as far as 24 hours.March 12, 2013 at 5:02 pm #100466

I have been using natural remedies to help with my menstrual cramps since I was required to go off of Advil last year due to stomach bleeding. (I used to take 4 at a time, several times to manage pain). This is what my doctor prescribed:
Vitamin B1 (100 mg), daily
Magnesium Oxide (400 mg, 2x day, for one week before your period and then during your period only).
Pycnogenol (don’t remember the dosage, but take it daily)–this is made from tree bark I think; very effective especially if endometriosis may be involved.
Also fish oil or flax seed oil for Omega 3 (don’t recall dosage)
Just before my period I also stop eating meat–the prostoglandins in meat make cramps worse I think. At any rate, if I have not eaten meat the day before I find the cramps a lot less.
During my period I also apply a heating pad directly to my stomach or back depending on where the pain is.
Lastly, I am told that ginger also helps cramps. Use real ginger and boil some in hot water to make like a tea. Or if you can eat it, cut it into pieces like a pill or grate it into food or add it into vegetable juice. My physical therapist friends also recommend this for general muscle cramps.March 12, 2013 at 6:05 pm #100483

magnesium citrate works for for me gives a sleepy feeling also, magnesium oxide isn’t absorbable and like some other laxatives is only safe for short term use unless you have a chronic constipation issue never even try it, citrate is safe i recommend adding the pill to water then straining any chunks out it taste good like lemon aid… also it is alkalizing so use it a hour after a meal so it don’t block hcl production or half hour before
