    Hi, I’m a 38yr old female and could really do with your help.

    Brief History:
    Gynae probs since 15 and on contraceptive pill for next 15yrs.
    2008-Failed IVF
    2008-Home Heating Oil Leak (Inhaling Kerosene for months b4 realising)
    Since 2008-I have lost 3 stone in weight – now down to a horrible 7stone.
    6wks ago-Total Hysterectomy (also discovered severe endometriosis) (will be going on HRT soon to alleviate menopausal symptoms)
    Now: Awaiting referral to Throat Specialist

    Symptoms:
    Weight Loss, constant sore throat/swallow, vaginal itch, hypersensitivity to some foods/alcohol/medication, exhaustion, stressed, very weak, have developed intolerence to milk, palpitations and lots more.

    I’ve told my GP and consultant what I think is wrong, but unfortunately candida is not recognised here by medical professionals (well, I’ve yet to meet one). I also asked for testing, but they insist its inconclusive. They did a vaginal swab, but that came back negative, even though I had an itch.

    With the help of this website, I’m going to try this diet and see can I be cured.
    All advice greatly appreciated. Can you please advise what i can eat to gain weight? I really can’t afford to loose anymore. Is there any calorie drinks/shakes out there, that I can take with this diet.

    Can I just double check too? I start with diet, then try to kill off candida (with nystatin?), then maintain diet for 6mths. Is that correct? I’m reading so much-I’m getting confused.

    Thank you.
    Heather.

    Hello Heather,

    I have a few tips about gaining weight. First off, its pretty typical to lose weight early on in your treatment as your body uses it reserves to fight this sucker off. If you take a lot of vitamins, eat 3-4 course meals, and stick with it…you can start to gain weight.

    Here’s a great bread to try out if you want to gain weight:

    Teff has great weight gaining properties.
    I also would check out coconut oil, and coconut milk which also can help you gain weight.

    Check out the protocol we developed for a good general treatment plan:

    Hello, Heather.
    Hopefully, this information will help you avoid more weight loss and possibly gain.

    Raster and Able, thank you so much for your advice re: weight gain. Its going to be very hard to get Teff flour here. Is there an alternative I could use?

    I haven’t started process yet.
    Something tells me I have it very bad. I’m gone to the stage that I’m getting hypersensitive to everything. Last nite, I took 1/4 large tub of natural yoghurt and my cheek started tingling within 1/2 hour. Its so frustrating, but it did help my sore throat, which has been bad for the last week.

    I just read your detox process. Which one did you use and find most effective? The Liver Flush cleanse sounds the easiest to me.

    Am I right in thinking that you shouldn’t eat the same thing every day, as you develop an intolerence to it? I had allergy testing done and it turned out I was sensitive to foods that I eat quite often and love. Is this normal?

    Thank you so much for all your help. Just trying to get info together and make sure I have everything before I start process.

    Thanks again.
    Determined but Tired.

    One other question if you don’t mind please? I have heard that Nystatin is good to try kill off some of the candida. At what stage do I use this? Thank you.

    You can use nystatin after the cleanse…it needs to be prescribed by a doctor.

    You can use either coconut flour or the prebiotic natural food, oat bran.

    I just read your detox process. Which one did you use and find most effective? The Liver Flush cleanse sounds the easiest to me.

    The liver flush as well as the detox drink are good, also juicing only fresh or frozen green vegetables is a good detox.

    Candida sensitivities do not develop until leaky gut syndrome causes the food to pass direction into the blood stream from the intestines which are permeated by the Candida cells. Therefore, the more foods you eat, the more foods your going to acquire an allergy to. You should stick to foods that are on the strict diet only. Have you requested the strict diet? If you don’t have it and are interested, I can send it to you. It’s the diet that most of the members are using as well as the experts who are still on the treatment.

    Thanks so much go both of you. I really appreciate your help.

    Able, if you could forward the strict diet that would be great. Thank you.

    I’ve been to a nutritionist, who thought I had leaky gut alright. I’ve been taking l-glutamine (amino acids) 1/2 hour before foods and digestive enzymes with foods, which has helped the foggy/fuzzy head I get.

    Thank you again
    Heather.
