Beat CandidaParticipantTopics: 14Replies: 73
Just a bit about myself. I am a 43 Yr old Male. Who thought that I was in good health till 2 months ago when suddenly everything went Crazy for me. I went blank driving on the Highway. Started getting bad headaches, Gases, Diarrhea, Chest Pain, Bloating , lost 25 pounds, stopped sleeping(Went 4 continuous days and nights without sleep).Had Ct Scan of Head, Intestines, Chest+ Heart Ekg,Ecg, Stress Test, Halter test,Electrocardiogram etc. Everything came fine.
Got dehydrated so started taking Gatorade. Started feeling problem in Swallowing & noticed for the first time the Oral thrush. Went to the doctor again who gave me Nystatin & told me that it is usually an HIV related problem. So got tested for HIV.(I am married for 15 yrs with kids).
H.Pylori test came positive so got the Tri-pack antibiotics , while I already had bad Thrush.
Stool test also came positive with some Parasite , so the doctor gave me another Antibiotic but by that time I was doing my research on line & found out about Candida.Also had high blood pressure issues & went through some medicine changes.
Started changing my diet got rid of Sugar, Wheat, fruits etc(Was still taking Banana & Real Coconut water for a while. But through trial & error I fine tuned my diet & for over a month I have been taking a good diet with almost no bad carbs.
Breakfast is usually of 2 eggs with Broccoli, green chilies,Green onion & maybe radish sometime as an Omelette done in Coconut oil.
Lunch & dinner is Chicken or Wild Ocean Salmon curry type dish (We call in Sallan, more like a broth but does have onion, Garam Masala & Herbs)I usually pour Kale, green chilies,Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Sweet Peppers, Radish, sea Salt. I do need meat (Till 2 months ago I had never consumed any of the mentioned Veggies ever. I was eating meat & junk with no veggies. I only like Hot peppers, Potatoes & Carrots). I do use coconut Vinegar & lemon & lime for taste.
For Vitamins I am taking : Centrum Multi Vitamins, Biotin 300 mcg 2 times, 1000mg of Vitamin C powder tice a day, Pure Enscapsulations Probiotic with 50 billion count once a day. Candida Stop by New roots. I also started taking Milk Thistle & NAC with Molybednum couple of days ago.
I also got diagnosed recently with heavy sleep apnea & have started using a CPAP machine.
My biggest issues are lack of sleep, I have been taking heavy sleeping medications to sleep but still get 3-5 hrs of broken sleep per night (which may or may not be related to Candida.
Thrush is still thriving in my mouth & throat after over 6 weeks after its discovery.(I also started Oil Pulling with Coconut oil about 10 weeks ago). Tongue is a bit better but the Throat is still terrible.How long does it take for someone to get rid of the Oral Thrush
Recently the major Gas, Belching,Gurgling sounds coming from the stomach,Gas passing out & Bloating problems started again along with the chest pain just like the pre H pylori treatment again. Strangely my diet is exactly the same & I did not introduce anything new again a part from Milk Thistle & NAC(I only started taking NAC With Molybednum only 2 days ago). I do not know if these are die -off symptoms or because of the leaky gut I cannot take the same food anymore.
The other problem is pretty consistent for about 2 months which is the lack of energy & concentration & in general problem in focusing. (Could be in relation to the sleep Deprivation).
Other Symptoms are continuous ringing in ears, Extra Dry mouth,muscle pain, Joint pain,Itching, Skin Breakouts & also extreme weakness.(Which could be because of the extreme weight loss , dropped 25 lbs during 1st month & another 13lbs since starting the diet & still going down. ( I was at 249lbs on June 28th & today I weigh 211).
Another question I do have is my diet way too low on CARBS & what are the longterm draw backs . I do also consume a lot of Coconut oil, should I worry about Cholesterol etc.
