Thanks again for the reply...Its good to talk to another guy my age who works out and has a head start on fighting this crap lol. I wanna start hitting some light workouts again this week.
I'm gonna pick up some virgin Coconut Oil later and start using a few tbsp per day.. Ive always heard good things about it, and it seems to have helped you a lot.
I hear you, on the stress thing...Stress will definitely accelerate the effects of this overgrowth..Mine was kinda brought on by stress too ..(went through a breakup of a long-term relationship with my girlfriend about 3 months ago, and was way depressed about it)...was drinking too much for a short period, after having cut back drastically for the past 2 yrs or so...I tried vodka again, which I hadn't drank in over a yr...worse still, I was mixing the vodka with either Pepsi, or full-sugar Cranberry juice! I dunno which was worse, the booze or the soda/juice LOL (I typically NEVER drink soda, so I'm sure my body had a strange reaction to all of a sudden downing 1 liter a day of pepsi for a week)...Did that for about a week, didn't drink for a few days, then few nights later went back to the beer and felt worse....To compound the problem, I wasn't eating right or working out anymore...Would wake up, not eat until 1:30 in the afternoon or so....then a light dinner around 5...and snacks late at night before bed....Down a sugar-filled, caffeinated energy drink to wake up in the morning...a few zantacs throughout the day to deal with the reflux..Talk about a vicious cycle..
Glad I'm eating better now :)
One question..I noticed on your other thread, you said you still have some white tongue issues....Do you find it comes and goes? Because mine was very white, when I started this...then after 3 or 4 days on the program it reduced greatly, but now these last few days its a little more white again (nowhere near as bad as it originally was though)...I wonder if this could be a result of die-off, since I've upped my probiotics quite a bit in the last week, and have started taking Pantethine the past 5 days, which kills off the acetaldehyde, that the candida releases?
