Hi guys, found this forum a couple weeks back. I’ve probably had candida for a long time… maybe since my teens. I am 29 now and I am realizing how much it has effected me.
Anxiety, Depression, Involuntary movements of the body (dystonia/myoclonus), involuntary facial twitches, social anxiety, Obsessive thoughts, intrusive thoughts, Adrenal Fatigue/CFS, Sebhorreic dermatitis on scalp, Hair loss, Parasites.
Needless to say its been devastating to my life. Initially I thought I had a movement disorder but when I did a colon cleanse with psyllium and bentonite like the cleanse on this website, my symptoms cleared up 75%. However they all came back as I ate regular food again. I didn’t suspect a candida connection then but I knew it had to do with the gut. If I am to guess, I think at least some percentage of movement disorders are caused by candida and leaky gut when the body starts to attack its own nerve structures.
I feel that there is also a spiritual aspect to this illness. I have felt like an out of control victim of circumstances for my whole life and that I feel has shown up as candida in my body literally robbing me of control of my own muscles and body. This feeling is probably due to some unresolved issues/limiting beliefs that I have.
I’ve worked on that some, and now its time to work on the physical. Although in the past I’ve tried diets… I haven’t succeeded because I had some negative mindset like an all or nothing attitude so if I cheated, then I just completely binged and gave up. That was not healthy. The other thing is that, this time the stakes are higher in my life to get this in control. So its up to me to roll up my sleeves and make this work.
My current plan is to follow this diet for some time and then switch to the GAPS diet that focuses on healing the intestinal lining. I start tomorrow with 3 days of veggies only and then switch to the full diet gradually. Wish me luck!April 30, 2012 at 4:43 pm #80500

Be sure to drink plenty of water between the vegetables.
Are you prepared for die-off symptoms?
Good luck to you.

You might find acupuncture to be highly beneficial to change your mindset if you are looking for something that will change you for the better in one day. I would then consider trying it out again later in your treatment as your body gains energy.
I wish you luck on your adventure to health.
