Ask questions and let us know what you are doing and how things are going ? Lets us know what happens to your spit in the glass test.
What I have said in reply is only half of the story, you must take note of how you feel after you eat, wash, brush your teeth. Do some research on candida diets, although I must say there is a lot of contradictory information out there as what is seemingly ok for one person can cause symptoms in another so you are ultimately the judge.
NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETNERS ALLOWED.
Oh I might add, most pharmacists are so brainwashed by their education that they automatically reject herbal protocols as being inferior. Tell me, where are all the solutions at the chemist??
You mentioned sweet potatoes, I know I cannot eat them as they cause me misery...
I eat lettuce, red onions, cucumber, boiled organic eggs and organic meat. I eat nothing else !! This is what I have had to reduce to to stop the candida getting any food source, however it is working... and my leaky gut is healing so its only a matter of time as they say.
If you feel ill then you are likely to be eating something that is causing the problem and its up to you to systematically determine what food it is, or better still just do what I have done and eliminate everything that is above 25 on the glycemic index chart.
Colloidal Silver 10ppm+ 15 mls per day, you can take more but that does become expensive. Either Oxygen Elements Plus or an alternative oxygen therapy of equivalent function, you could distill water and buy an ozonator which is what I intend to do once I have the money available. These are the two primary tools to kill the candida, I also use Caprylic Acid, Candigest and St Johns Wort (has been demonstrated to help fight candida and elevate mood).
Ofcourse all this is in addition to Colostrum and L-Glutamine for the leaky gut.
Yes it costs some money and requires utmost discipline !
