My situation: I started the diet/cleanse back in August. I lost my period very early on after starting the diet (I’ve lost 25 pounds as a result). I was doing well so both naturopaths, my gp, my obgyn, all said I needed to start eating more. So I have. But I’m not really gaining weight. I’m so tired of this fight. I did well for 5.5 months. I’ve now probably tipped the scale a bit as I’ve had a yeast infection. I don’t think I can go back to a severe diet. I just want to ensure I don’t undo any gains I’ve made! My main symptoms were recurrent yeast infections, UTI’s, brain fog and lack of concentration. This has been the case for over ten years!
I did the cleanse. Took rotating anti-fungals. Pro-biotics. Vitamins, enzymes. A lot of different things. I had seen improvements for sure. I find it all overwhelming at times as there are so many different things people are taking and recommending and at different points in their treatment. I really want to simplify things.
Currently I take FLORASTOR an OTC probiotic (it is more saccharomyces boulardii as this seems to help me). I eat coconut oil daily. I take vitamins. I try to remember to incorporate glutamine & plant digestive enzyme but it’s sporadic. I’ve taken so many different things. I don’t know what to stick with. I don’t take any proper anti-fungals anymore because I was advised I don’t need them anymore. I’ve used boric acid sporadically when I’ve needed to. I did a month long treatment using it. I don’t want to feel like all the work I’ve done will be undone now but I also felt the need to shift my focus to get back my menstruation. I’m taking vitex (chastetree) I’m 37 and would like to give myself a chance to conceive in the future. And the future is now! I would love to know how to proceed without necessarily taking steps back. Any advice??
