Hi all……After 6 months of fighting this treacherous disease I am happy and proud to announce that I know longer suffer from fecal odour/leaky gas. I have genuinely defeated the demons of this devastating disease.
I am 26 years old male, and suffered with this for four years, went from partying having loads of friends and getting lots of girls, to being alone on the couch too scared to leave my house because of the fear of ridicule.
Now my smell from what I understand was at the serious end of things….pretty bloody potent. Enough to clear a room and I got the usual comments like ‘Who shat themselves’.
This is not an easy ride to beat this, but if you can be totally dedicated to sticking to the diet I believe we can all get better from this. The sad thing is though, the weak minded won’t make it. It’s harsh but it’s the truth!
For 6 months I stayed on the Candida diet, being as strict as possible and concentrating on eating as many green vegies as possible (I think they are the key…think probiotics) I also took my anti-fungals religiously along with a digestive enzyme, fish oil capsules and a multi-vitamin. Progress began very slow, but it was obvious something was going on when I could see white flakes and transparent things in my bowel movements. At times I began to wonder if anything was even happening, because progress was so slow. But the key is, to not doubt your self. Just keep going no matter what.
Each day my goal was to add a piece to the puzzle….whether it being going on a huge run or skolling a disgusting vegie shake. It all adds to the finished piece and in the end, this is what will bring you success.
Forget about the %¤#&!§-miracle cures, THERE AREN’T ANY! Stop wasting your hard earned money on things that don’t work. People are willing to take advantage of people like us who are emotionally unstable, which brings me to the next mini topic.
Beating this is one hell of an emotional ride…..there will be some highs and also plenty of low points along the way. Because all of us are suffering with toxic blood, our organs are basically getting manhandled from it – as all sorts of crap filters through our kidneys, liver, pancreas etc. This means we are susceptible to stress, get easily fatigued and are often very emotional and confused. The by-product of Candida die-off is also totally nasty to the brain. It can turn you into a complete mess overnight. You will have days where you are negative and can’t picture the finish line will be upset, crying or just can’t get out of bed….this is totally normal. Die-off is bad shit!
My bowel movements are the only thing that I would say aren’t 100%, and I would also agree that I haven’t ridden the Candida/fungus 100%, BUT I AM CERTAINLY SMELL FREE. From the things I told my doc he seems to think the fungus/candida is in my pancreas, so he has given me some meds to try and eliminate this. Everything we are suffering from is very vague, so I was very impressed when he got out his books during my appointment and we talked through it to better understand it. Incidentally, mark my words, there is def a relationship between the smell and the liver, and possibly kidneys/pancreas. When I did my second liver flush, the next day I turned slightly yellow and the smell was being emitted in public again. What does this say. The by-product of Candida is after all alcohol, and we all know what too much alcohol does to the liver. Makes sense!
For me personally, I gained an exercise addiction throughout my fight, and I will exercise daily for as long as my body lets me. For the first few months I would do cardio three times a week, but at the end it was more like every day. I would push myself further and further and my fitness levels went through the roof. This was perfect, as it enabled me to sweat out all the dirty toxins in me. I consider this one of the most important things in beating this stinking problem. The only thing is with exercise is, it makes you tired…..always have a good sleep after and drink loads and loads of water every day. This goes without saying though.
I also couldn’t have done without the support of a special friend who gave me support through my ordeal. I can’t thank her enough. The thing is, for so long I told NO ONE except my family, who pretty much thought I was tripping to an extent. Well they supported me, but they did think I was obsessive and paranoid about it. The day I told some of my friends and this special girl, was when I reckon my mind allowed me to push forward. You cannot bottle this up….your friends will think you are a weirdo…..and the funny thing is they will understand what you are going through and will be there for you no matter what. If they aren’t true friends you will find this out.
The isolation is one of the biggest problems with this disease. Believe me when we say we have been to hell and back, it is so totally true.
The best thing is if you can beat this, you can do absolutely anything in life. It gets easier from hear on in. Of course you still play it safe and follow the diet. But now for me life is about to be amazing. I got through my friends wedding and even got asked on a date by a girl who seated at my table, the times have changed, and it feels good.
So there you go, for everyone who has given up hope or contemplated suicide, YOU CAN BEAT THIS, I HAVE PROVED THIS. And to the people who have actually taken their own lives because this, I wish you could be with us all now, to see that there is a solution.
It's not about fighting the odour at all (you can't think short term).....its about getting the insides cleaner and in better working order.... if you do this for long enough the smell will eventually disappear. Do this by following a strict Candida diet and getting on the antifungals (garlic,grape-fruit seed extract, pau d arco etc). Stay well away from all carbs and Sugar and all will be good.
Hey Hadenuff29, I was wondering what exactly made up your Candida Diet. I do know that generally the diet consists of staying away from anything with Sugar or yeast in it, so basicly, it appears that most of the diet is comprised of only or mostly vegetables and supplements, am I correct?
I've tried the candida diet and unfortunately didn't last as long as you because I had gotten so desperate to find a quicker cure. I've been dealing with this for just over 2 years now and I'm also wondering if those of us who've already experienced this fecal odor might be susceptible to it again if we don't stick to the diet. Can we return to enjoying a pizza, beer, or whatever like everyone else or are we destined to eat like cattle for the rest of our days? I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm all for getting rid of this, and for GOOD, but is there any permanent damage to the body because of this is what I'm trying to get at. My doctor doesn't believe people can have Candida overgrowth yet my symptoms are genuine and much like everyone else here on this forum. I've seen 2 gastroenterologists and a hydrotherapist about it and only my hydrotherapist confirmed the over-growth of candida. Now intutitively-speaking, I had an idea that the liver was some how involved as well as you stated above being compromised by heavy drinking (which I did before the onset of symptoms). I'm wondering if this type of damage or affliction is permanently reversed with no threat of it coming back...at all. This is the ultimate question for many of us. How many men and women of all ages and health ranges eat and drink freely and don't worry about fecal body odor? What makes us so different? I've had friends drink me under the table and they don't suffer at all.
So how long have you been smell-free since your 6 month battle? I too have noticed transparent and white particles of matter in my bowel movements that damn near shocked me and thought there was something wrong until I read that this is evidence of parasitic infection and the breaking down and release of unwanted toxin in the body. During which I was supplementing with a whole food vitamin, probiotics, Atlantic Cod fish oil, and Kyo-Green supergreen powder (fantastic stuff). Any insight on the Candida diet that you practiced would be helpful and also too how I can try to eliminate more of these transparent parasitic type matter in my colon on a regular basis instead of on occasion. Thanks.
its the no Sugar no carbs diet, that gets the results. Stick to this and you will get results.
I'm pretty sure i was smell free after 4.5 months, but just kept going and waited until i was 100% sure. Because half the problem is once your better, believing this.
The thing i noticed is though, as i got better through my fight, the anxiety and all that was slowly disappearing even before i was better. So by the time i was better (6.5 months) i had confidence that i just didnt have when i was so toxic and would only leave house to buy groceries.
Just stick to it, and def get more hydrotherapy. I have had 4 sessions, and will get another 6 over the next 6 months to get my colon in better condition. I believe we can eat whatever we want in good time, but youd be mad to do it straight away. Imagine after another year how much my insides would have mended. Remember the smell is being emitted from dirty blood. So the better the intestines the less chance anything unwanted will get in the blood.
it is pretty weird at the moment
don't know what to do with myself.....it's a long weekend, and i'm planning in my head on staying on the lounge.....then it hits home....i can actually leave the house. The freedom is overwhelming. life is good, and i want every single person on here to realise that they too will be better soon.
