Dear BB I can totally relate to so much of what you have said. I am in a hurry so this won;t be a long reply just now but I wanted to say that I thought I was going crazy too. I changed my diet and took various herbal remedies to support and detox my system. I am in england and had a test using the Aysra system, which comes from the US. It took several weeks before I could say that I felt better but am so glad that i took the action that I did. I also want to throw another suggestion in as it it something else i am trying to deal with – the peri-menopause. A lot of what you have said also links to the peri-menopause, when your hormones can cause all sorts of havoc. My research indicates that both can cause problems with the other, but which comes first?? i need to go now but good luck and ANY change to your diet will help and look into the supllements available.

Ok – maybe this is more die-off. On thinking about it I have been itchy, mainly head area, my stomach feels uncomfortable, my stools were more mucosy again this morning, I feel slightly queesy and headachy and tired. My main symptoms were psychological – irritability, anger, low mood, anxiety etc so it makes sense that when i get die-off I get those symptoms. I’m just FED UP of feeling like this. And yes I’m looking for reassurance!!!!
Cheers Able, sometimes it just helps knowing that you’re not alone. When I had my test (the Aysra system – comes from America) I was told that candida was the cause of many of my symptoms, (but no a bad case of candida) however there still may be underlying hormonal stuff going on and this will be easier to identify when the candida is under control. My nutritionist has given me antifungals, probiotics etc as well as herbs and stuff to help with the liver, lymph and adrenals, she felt that I would not feel too much in the way of die-off. Having heard some people on here I think that I’ve been lucky and not suffered as much – but I still feel rubbish at time.
I know that am perhaps impatient and I know that i do feel better than I did. I feel a bit like a hypochonriac at times! I do wonder how others see me, I used to be able to cope with high stress, keep going no matter what, now doing a bit of ironing can tire me out!! Talking of ironing, I hear it calling…….
Try and find a health practitioner who uses the Asyra Pro system. This is how i found out about my candida last week. if you look at nutrivital.co.uk there is info and a video clip about it. Failing that a kinesiologist would be able to help. I have had food tests and other stuff with one in the past, it works in a similar way to the Asyra – biofeedback from the body. Having trained in basic kinesiology I believe it works and I have always had good results.
Hi Liv, well done for sticking to the intensive diet, mine isn’t so as I’m following a different routine following on from a health acreening test with a naturopath. my test showed I needed to cut out wheat, tuna, peanuts and the obvious sugars,caffine etc. I am trying to stick to a more strict diet though and as i haven’t lost any weight yet wonder if the goats cheese and browbn rice that I have been eating are not helping. i have cut out fruit which is difficult. It’s so confusing as to know what to do for the best – I guess we’re all different and it’s a case of finding what works for us.
You’re right, this is a time to care care of ourselves, something I haven’t done in a very long time and it’s not coming easy to me!
Hope – So i’m not the only one who feels that their brain is mashed up becasue of this? Well that’s good to know, there have been times when I have thought that I am going mad – that I’m going to do something really stupid and that has been scary as i have a 6 year old son.
Thanks Hope, I will keep going with this, I have managed it before it’s just that I have more psychological symptoms and that is what I am struggling with. my naturopath has given me B complex, acidophillus, a herbal mixture to support the detox process – antifungals, liver etc, another concoction for adrenal support and a mixture to support my body in re-balancing.
I do get a glimmer of hope now and again and i think that my energy levels have increased slightly. I intend to ask my partner later if he has noticed any change in me.
Katy – yes i was afraid of passing out but because of low blood sugar. I must admit I don’t actually know how long it would be before that happened but it was always linked to the feeling that I HAD to eat – and NOW!
I’m a week in and everynow and then I get a glimmer of hope that I will feel better. I am getting headaches, nausea, feeling wobbly/lightheaded and tiredness – still. I must admit the suddeen feelings of needing to eat is diminishing but I am still eating little and often just in case.
It is baffling the different views around what to and what not to eat. I’m trying not to allow it to get me down and feel too paranoid!! I’m going along with a bit of trial and error.
Most of the time i would eat regularly – little and often, it was the knawing feeling that really bugged me, i felt it even after i had just eaten. Having made some changes (not as much as is recommended here, I think that this is because my health practitioner has given me so many different herbs, supplements etc to support my whole system because my liver and adrenals were involved) I am noticing some changes, small ones but changes nevertheless. It gets difficult for me as i also feel that my fear of my blood sugar falling sends me to food! I really am hoping that this diet sorts me out!!June 11, 2011 at 11:10 pm in reply to: Newbie – Hi, found out I have candida (again) from health practitioner #63640
Able, until last Tuesday I had been eating some things with sugar in, like savory things, that has stopped now. I had been taking a herbal supplement for the peri-menopause and this had passion flower in it. My health practitioner has sugessted that I stop all previous supplements until we see what difference her remedies have. I have numerous amounts – herbs, vitamins, hemeopathic, flower essenses etc. All to help the candida and support my adrenals and liver. The Asyra system seems to be amazing – some of the remedies are digitally imprinted – apparently we just need the resonance of some things to kick start our own healing.
Anyway time will tell.
