Well I've been fighting candida for about 5 months. The past two months I've been experiencing some severe die symptoms. These include itching, rashes, allergies, spaced out feelings, irritability etc. But during the past two weeks I've surprisingly made some wonderful improvements in my symptoms. First of all my rashes/itching have improved at least 50% (I can finally get some sleep). Second of all my outlook and attitude and brain fog has improved drastically. And I mean DRASTICALLY. In fact, if I didn't have this small nagging itching, I would feel like I havent felt in over a decade. My head is clear. I feel light on my feet. My eyes don't have a "glaze" over them anymore. I feel like I've kicked this demon. Of course I know this game isn't over. I still have alot in front of me. But I think I'm cornering this candida. Here's what I've been doing. Note: I'm not advocating this protocol to anyone...just passing it along for your info.
First of all I've been exercising all along, but recently I've upped my regiment to 5 vigorous exercise workouts per week. This involves jogging/running down the street like a freaking madman for 30-40 mins. This alone has done wonders. (too many benefits to mention)
And here is a list of what I've been taking.
1. flax seed oil/cottage cheese mixture twice a day (See Dr Budwig formula). This I believe is working a miracle on me. (2-3 tablespoons cottage cheese, 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil)
2. Psyllium/bentonite shakes twice a day.
3. 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar/ 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon in a 6 ounce glass of warm water twice a day
4. 2 teaspoons of powdered alfalfa in water twice a day. (Great for detoxification)
5. 1 tea bag of "detox tea", one tea bag of rooibos tea combined in one cup.
6. 1 bulb of garlic lightly grilled with vegetables (broccoli, red onions), drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Yes that is one BULB. (at least 12-15 cloves)
7. Vitamins E, A, C, Zinc, green tea tablets, coral calcium, quercetin
My spit test has improved by at least 50%. My "legs" now take much longer to form than before. (They used to form immediately.)
Also, and very interestingly (maybe kind of gross too) but when I go to the bathroom I've noticed my "#2" is floating as opposed to sinking. I've read this indicates a healthy bowel movement. (my #2's have sunk for as long as I remember.)
Anyway. Good luck. If anyone has a comment on this protocol please let me know your opinion. Tom
