    I see your still in the anti-kefir crusade. Your little stint with store bought kefir was not good enough. lol.

    I never looked at kefir as a big anti-fungal. I have not been on the site in awhile but im not sure anyone has.

    Kefir is a great probiotic. You may disagree with probiotics being useful while on a Candida diet but I dont. Finding kefir was something I will always be greatful for. I had reactions to it for awhile but now I feel wonderful and I do not use probiotics from pills. I just drink home made kefir and eat foods with live cultures.

    I never had to have an enema either. No point in going straight to my butthole for a cure when a reasonable cure is listed right here under the candida diet.

    I have come a long ways. My sypmptons of candida is all but gone. Now I just focus on my SD and psoriasis of which there is no real cure. I started introducing more anti-inflamitory foods that I couldnt eat before.. I was already eating blueberries, now I have added shiitake mushrooms, Green Tea, sweet potatoes and I have no reactions. I just keep improving.

    Milk kefir is not for everyone. But coconut or water kefir is much more easier to handle. I reccomend it to everyone. It has improved my life. The store bought stuff may help you a little, may be the easier way to get it but It is nothing compared to the real deal.

    Good luck folks

    I love the stuff but as mentioned it must be with the “mother” most sold in grocery stores are pasturized and kill all the benifitical stuff. This is so it looks nice and clear in the bottle for retail. you want the stuff that has crap floating in it lol. A good name brand is Braggs.

    One thing to remember is that long term use can damage the tooth enamel. always rinse with water after drinking it and though its a good idea to brush your teeth afterwards, do not brush your teeth without fully rinsing out your mouth first.

    I found that drinking the ACV/water solution through a straw can be a good way to bypass the teeth.

    Well folks I dont know If it’s the warmer weather and sun exposure, fermented cod liver oil, the candida diet, my kefir whey baths, petroleum jelly but my skin conditions have made drastic improvement. My SD is receding, my red spots on my legs and arms are also fading. I’m nervous to change anything lol. It’s been a long winter and the worst outbreak I have ever had for SD. The only thing bugging me is the scaily patch on my right elbow which is a new symptom I got recently and makes me think I may have psoriassis as well as SD. But it’s my elbow and not my face!!! I got a tan and almost feel normal again.

    just give me 1 month without a major outbreak and I’ll be happy.

    Congrats Marbro that is amazing.
    I know exactly what you mean by do not want to change anything with the fear of reversing the progress. Tell me more about Kefir Whey baths, this sounds intriguing, is the fermented cod liver oil emulsified with butter oil?
    I am currently taking regular CLO and I know the benefits of fermented are significantly higher but it is a lot more expensive.
    I am so happy for you about this. Where did you have the SD on your face?
    I really have a feeling almost convinced that mine is linked to my untreated thyroid for a couple of years.

    No just plain straight fermented cod liver oil. Nasty tasting stuff. But i rea that regular cod liver oil will still help if it’s a good quality.

    I have been making kefir cream cheese, and I use the left over whey in my bath. I don’t rinse off just do a light pat down. It however is getting expensive lol And I have too much cream cheese so I’m trying to work out a system still where I can do it twice a week at least.

    I have it on the hairline in two spots above my forhead, a small patch on my right eyebrow, ears behind and in. My right sideburn area, under my nose and mustach area. My ears on the front and inside are healed athe moment! A great victory lol but I still have issues behin them but improving. The spots on my hairline are about gone just a pinkish glow to remind me it can come back lol. My eyebrow eh, still can flake once and awhile my mustache is only effected at the ends right now and the worst is under my nose which is slight but red and irritating. Prior all my spots were red and irritating and would flake and crack if left untreated.

    So great improvement. I think he sun and warm weAther has had the most positive effect by not sure so I’m sticking with my regime for now. Even though my ears are healed I still put petroleum jelly on them along with everywhere else each Morning and when I can get away with It publicly during the day.

    I have got them to and they started after the diet. A couple got as big as a dime but most are smaller like big pimples. If left untreated they will dry up and white scaly skin will form on top. I was using acv and petroleum jelly twice a day and it seems to help reduce the redness and prevent the dry skin. It’s been over a month and they are starting to disappear. Slowly though and I expect to still have them for at least another month. The sun tan has helped to hide them and also helped with my other skin issues. Hopefully my body will heal before next fall.

    I thought they were ringworm or scabies but I’m convinced at this point it’s just toxins leaving my body from the cleanse. After showering I do still put on a thin coat of coconut oil (just in case it fungal related) and then treat the larger red areas with patroilum jelly. But I stopped using acv because the sun is doing a good job with the healing. I probaly should go back to it.The areas where I did not get a tan and the large red spots disappeared they left a slight yellowish pigmentation for awhile. The fist two spots I got them are completely gone now though.

    I thnk raster was referring the cleanse. stage 0 for forum protocol or stage 1 for website.

    blueberries have more sugar than whats typically allowed from veggies on the allowed food list. However they do offer a lot of benifits. So after finishing your cleanse if you decide to it and then about 2-3 weeks into your diet of stage 1 when you start eating yogurt you might want to try adding blueverries then. You have to keep in mind that you are adding more sugar than what is reccomended and it may not help you with your quest in destroying candida. I and I guess raster have already made up our minds that blueberries are worth the risk for the reward.

    Hmmm. A little confused.

    Brown organic eggs are okay or not okay? I live in Southern California too, and I been getting the brown organic eggs.

    Hi Tom,

    Sorry for the little side discussion here about the egg color 🙂

    Brown organic eggs are OK 🙂 The key word is “organic” regardless of the color.

    Just curious if anyone ever found white organic eggs???

    Arijana

    they sell white organic eggs where I live at the local grocery store. But its only one brand and I dont think they sell well. I will buy them if they are on sale. Most folks identify organic eggs as brown and no doubt most grocery stores stock up on the brown varity for this reason. rather than take heavy losses with the white organics even though they are more than likely easier to produce.

    Growing up my grandmother and friends of the family raised chickens and they were always brown eggs. That made me identify “organic” as brown but I eventually learned that breeds determine the color and what the chickens feed on really determines if they are organic. Also most comercial egg producers pump their chickens full of steroids and crap. I can never eat non organic anymore eggs or the meat. this diet has really woken me up to the crap we put in our bodies and horrors that comes with mass producing meat for our consumption.

    Chickens were bred to produce white eggs over generations. So The breed of the chicken can determine the color of the egg. Some chickens Lay green eggs it doesn’t mean that they are bad. major egg producers Bleach their eggs as well. The important thing is that the eggs are free range and are not fed antibiotics and steroids. This will be printed on the carton. Free range alone is not good enough.

    Also I don’t know if it’s a misprint but you infact can get organic eggs all over southern California.

    Now that I have read some of his/her other post I’m going with trolling. Im not 100% confident that able and Raster’s protocol is the only way to beat candida but I am 100% sure that thus character has nothing to offer this forum but negativity and trolling.

    Just stay away from the store bought crap and make you own kefir. When I first looked it up I was in no mood to make that hippy crap. But the fact is that the store bought stuff just does not compare to the home made kefir from grains.

    Now I’m knee deep in the hippy crap. I make both milk and water kefir. I make cheese out of it. I use the whey for skin treatment and I ferment veggies like sauerkraut withough having to use salt.

    Learn to make your own and the sugar content will not be an issue.

    Lol no doubt and I can tell you fist hand it taste like crap.

    Regular cod liver oil is cheap and still a good source of vitamin A&D. As well as a good anti-iflamatory agent.

    This Is good for folks who Do not get much sun exposure.

    Lauren wrote: I was just wondering what everyone’s thoughts on Venison meat since it is lean. Some of my family members are hunters and process their own meat so there is nothing added to it. I am assuming Able will say that chicken, fish, and eggs are a better choice. But I do eat turkey, bison, and lamb to change up the meat. Even though it is not on the strict diet. 🙁 I just love variety in my meat. Can’t candida start to survive on anything? Would it be better to change up the meat as long as it lean? Is it how long the meat takes to digest that is the main concern? Just curious.
    Thank you for any responses,
    Lauren

    If your going to eat red meat I think venison is a good choice. Howevever I wouldn’t eat it more than once a week and stick to fowl or fish more often. It’s been very hard for me to stay away from meat. I am use to having meat in some form in all my meals. Stick with the diet as he’s you can and you will be able to eat meat more often in no time.

    Started the diet 100% today.
    I also took, one probiotic and 1000mg milk thistle. HELP!!!!!!

    You started the diet … and took a probiotic all on the same day?

    That’s literally a request in the form of begging for trouble.

    Pardon me asking, but have you read even one protocol for treating a Candida overgrowth? Ever?

    I don’t suppose you took Molybdenum Amino Acid Chelate for three days before starting the diet either?

    Gee Able, could you have reamed her any more? Seriously??? This is NOT support, it’s harassment! You’re not a good example of what a forum leader should be. Get off your high horse and step down…Mister “only been successful for 6 months”. You should be a “newbie”. Not an “expert”.

    Pretty in pink? Don’t listen to this guy. Go research Candida on your own and learn what you can from multiple websites that are helpful AND nice. You don’t have to take this kind of abuse from this attention seeking kid. I’m sorry he was such a jerk to you.

    Actually able has done a lot of good for people here unlike yourself. Your negativity is th worst thing I have seen on this forum since I came here. I would put you on ignore if it were an option as it is I just have to hope you leave.

    @prettyinpink.

    I originally got the wrong Molybdenum and used just milk thistle and it wasnt enough. When I got the right Molybdenum and started taking that I felt solo much better. I now take both.

    The diet here works but you have to follow it.

    One thing I read a lot here is folks having sever die offs from doing his diet. Now let me correct that from …attempting to do this diet. What j see a lot of is folks skipping parts of the forum protocol and then complainin of sever die offs. The protocol is designed to reduce the discomfort and ease into this diet. But folks either jump right into heavy probiotics, anti-fungals or both. Nowhere in the protocol does it say to do that. Folks need to first learn to read thoroughly then adhere to the protocol.

    If you tried a bunch of different diets and have failed. Read the forum protocol, start your cleanse and work you wAy through it properly. You shouldn’t be taking probiotics for about 3 weeks after you start your cleanse.

    If your not having success with the diet you are using hen I highly suggest you give able and raster a email and try thier protocol. It’s a strict serious diet but will starve and attack candida better than what your currently doing. If you take the time to read through it fully and adhere to it then I believe you will be successful.
