I found out I had Candida after insane itching at night and on my bottom. My diet has been high in carbs and sugar for the last 6 months (+ stress), which definitely put me over the edge. I started the diet 2 or so weeks ago, just started antifungals and probiotics. My die-off symptoms (if they are die-off symptoms) are insane. I am completely up and down with my moods, to the point where it’s affecting my relationship with my mom whom I’m currently living with. I start a new job and MOVE in 2 weeks and will be going on international trips shortly thereafter. I literally cannot function and I need to be able to to live my life. I’m in bed, constantly, because I’m so weak. My stomach is making all kinds of weird sounds and I am craving carbs and a not-so-regimented diet. This is making me incredibly depressed, and I already struggle with depression as it is. When will this stop and when will it go away and how can I make these symptoms lessen? Is there anything I can do?
Sorry for the intense message but I literally don’t know where to go about this. Any and all help and support would be so appreciated.

The anal itching is likely from digestive problems. Buy some anti-itch cream to reduce the symptoms, or try coconut oil at night.
You should avoid anything that will irritate your stomach/gut in the short term. That means cutting down on coffee, spicy food, etc.
Reduce your use of probiotics and antifungals for a while. Focus on the diet instead and allow yourself to get used to that first. You’re meant to introduce those (and the diet) using a staggered approach to avoid irritating your liver and GI tract. Sounds like you’ve done too much too fast!!April 11, 2018 at 5:25 pm #175525

The anal itching has stopped since starting the diet, so we’re good there.
I’ve cut down on coffee from literally 4 cups to 1. That’s hard enough – I can’t cut out anymore based on my lifestyle at this point.
Why would I use a staggered approach if I just want it out of me? And if I do, does that mean I can still eat some carbs and some sugars alongside the diet and just reduce them gradually? I’ve literally cut them out completely and my body is clearly not reacting well. It is in complete shock and my brain is completely out of wack. I don’t know what to do.April 12, 2018 at 8:12 am #175531

You say you will start in the job just 2 weeks from now? So while you can stay at home before starting there, I would advise to make a cold-turkey fasting. Make your last meal the dinner, and after waking up in the next day you start your fasting. It’s much easier to do it this way since the many hours you don’t eat while you’re asleep will reduce the cravings for food significantly. Up to 3rd day it will be tough the cravings, resist it. Day 3 onwards much easier. When I fasted, I consumed coffee normally, and also good since a cup of coffee consists of more than 90% water, it will not affect your progress, just be careful with the amount of sugar you drink with it. Fasting is the only measure that will allow for the quickest results. Sleep a lot, sex, netflix, whatever keeps your head from thinking on food LolApril 17, 2018 at 7:53 am #175566
