It was diet and antifungals. The first 6 months I was clueless and trying a million things. After my colonoscopy I felt relief. I was so constipated the yeast and bacteria sitting in my gut was awful. Colonics help so much! My digestion is improving better day by day. I still will take my enzymes and hcl with every meal. I still take sf722, garlic, and every few weeks olive leaf extract for an extra punch. It will be years before if I feel like this is cure able. But the progress of the past 4 months have been amazing. So I keep goingNovember 6, 2013 at 6:12 am in reply to: Is there anything I can take to ease the sugar withdrawal? #112347
I am 32 and I ate at least 4 chocolate bars a day, ice cream everyday, plus lots of sugar my whole life. I had to stop cold turkey last year. The cravings go away once you stay away from the sugar. There was a study that sugar is as addictive as cocaine. That is awful but I know how it feels. I don’t eat sugar anymore other than natural sugars. I feel so much heathier without the sugar
It takes a ton of willpower and money unfortunately. I don’t feel like I am cured if that is possible but its under control. Yeast is a pain in the ass but with diet and supplements there is light at the end of the tunnel
I take 6 or 7 pills a day just so my candida doesn’t come back. Just trying to heal leaky gut now and keeping the bad bacteria in check
colonics have been helping me greatly. Its equivalent to twenty bowel movements a session, and to see the yeast and toxing coming out is great. I have had three only and will continue to go every two weeks probably for 6 months or so. I feel so much better I can’t even tell you. Enemas are good but colonics are much better in my opinion. Just get a strong probiotic like vsl 3
If I look at something and it has more than like three ingredients I just put it back. The lower the ingredients the better pretty much
Even though I feel pretty much cured of my candida, I stick to a strict diet, but I get away with gluten free pasta, rice everyday, beans, red and sweet potatoes. However, I do have oats and I still get pretty mucousy even eating a tiny bit of oats. I m getting tested next week to see how sensitive I have to them. Its still my leaky gut that is the problem. Last week I tested postive to the whole cabbage family. Cauliflower, brocolli, brussel sprouts and kale. It sucks but sometimes those food are hard to digest anyway. I stick to spinach, salads, and butternut squash. Good luck
The bitters do make me constantly thirsty and I was thinking I had diabetes because of it. Stuff works for different people.
the yeast is making you crave carbs. It happens for most people. There will come a day when you can eat some gluten free pasta, potatoes, and rice again. Red and sweet potatoes are much better than regular potatoes. Just try not to think about that now until your symptoms are much better. I still do crave chocolate. I had chocolate every day for many many years, now I don’t touch it. On special occasions I will probably eat a piece of cake or something. Just don’t want to inflame the gut too much and feed the yeast a ton of sugar
I use enzymes now. The only problem is it causes my pancreas to be lazy. However, the sweedish bitters were causing me to urinate many times a day, I couldn’t handle the diuretic in it. Dandelion root I believe. It didn’t make me feel great. Which sucks because I d rather use the bitters
I take prozac to help calm me down and also xanax to help me sleep. Its the only thing that helps me. I got bad insomnia after the Marines
I started eating rice, red and sweet potatoes, gluten free pasta once a week, steak, tomatoes. Its almost been a year of battling this so it feels great to introduce these foods. I still don’t touch gluten,yeast,chocolate, but I m dying for a pizza. I also have a taste for a hot fudge sundae but I know thats not the best thing right now. In future months I plan on eating a sundae again. Be slow at introducing things especially if only on the diet for less than six months
you should look into small intestinal bacteria overgrowth.
I took around 5 to 6000 mg of vit c when I was fighting die off and wanting to give adrenals a kick. Now I do about 3 to 4000 every day. Does work up slowly to it as a lot of vit c can cause diarrhea at first
I drink the chamomile tea every night 30 minutes before bed. I like it
