I'm trying to piece together a protocol for some of my health problems. Please let me know what you think:
High cortisol: 1/2 tsp of Ashwaghanda 2x daily 20 minutes before meals, 500 mg. Nettle leaf 2x daily before meals, Non buffered Vit C w/B Complex with meal 2x daily, Watercress 1/2 tsp 2x daily, Rosehips 1/2 tsp 2x daily, Bee pollen 1/2 tsp 3x daily Rice bran 3 tbs 3x daily with meals
Candida: Rice bran (above), Kefir 2 oz per day (do I take this on an empty stomach or is it ok in a smoothie?) Is 2 oz enough? Gentian powder 3x daily (is this taken with meals?). Zinc: 50 mg/2 mg copper 1x daily with meals. TMG 3 x daily (I have excessive epinephrine release, is it okay to take the TMG?). Yucca Root 1/2 tsp 2x daily.
My stool test showed the highest number for candida overgrowth. Should I take any anti fungals? Will the following interfere with the kefir or kill the good bacteria?: Pau D'Arco, coconut oil, Neem. Any other suggestions for decreasing the candida?
Hypoglycemia: Magnesium malate (what is a good dose in pill form?)
Do you have any suggestions for herbs that would reduce antibodies in Hashimoto's? I am trying to ease off the medication and am looking for herbs to replace it.
Also, I couldn't find much on your thoughts in regards to diet for candida. Do you believe that all sugars need to be cut out, including fruit? Currently I don't eat any processed sugar. Would a diet of veggies, fruit, raw dairy, chicken, red meat, eggs and nuts/seeds be okay or do I need to cut out everything but eggs, meat and veggies?
Thanks so much for your help. All of the info in your posts have been a TON of help.
