For the last year I’ve been drinking ensure milkshake which contains vitamins and minerals and prebiotics fat and omega oils. But they also contain sugar and corn syrup.
I have m.e/CFS and take ensure to help me with that and to put weight on but I also suspect I have candida as if often the case with CFS/m.e
I feel bad about taking the drinks cos they have sugar in them but I don’t have any other vitamin supplements I don’t know if they’re actually doing more harm or good? As I say I suspect I have candida but don’t know 100% certainly have all the symptoms
I tried going without my drinks for a week and I was terrible I lost a lot of weight and my muscles and legs were very sore and very weak.
So I’ve gone back on them as I have to maintain a good weight I was down to 6 stone without them
I don’t know what to do as otherwise I’m avoiding all sugar and only eat eggs bacon veg chicken water
I have read about other vitamin minerals products that don’t contain sugar and are a much stronger % of vitamins and minerals but with no sugar
I don’t know whether to try them and give up ensure but then I will lose weight I can’t seem to put weight on just food alone
Its easy to stick with ensure cos I’m used to them and although they help me they’re not giving me a real boost
Since I’ve been taking them the funny thing is my symptoms have improved but I think that’s the vits and minerals but surely if the sugar in them were really feeding candida my symptoms would have got worse?
Can anyone advise what to do?
I’m worried if I don’t take that step to try this alternative vitamin mineral powder designed for CFS/m.e (energy revitilisation system – fatigued to fantastic) with the stronger vits and also NAC which is good for cfs I worry that I might miss my chance of getting better
What should I do?
Of course my worry is also that I might have a reaction to the new powder as I have mulpitle sensitivities and used to have seizures whenever I ate food
Can anyone please help?
