So you all may remember I was saying that I couldn't follow the anti-yeast diet very well, I kept cheating...and even foods like we're supposedly allowed, like brown rice, I'd go overboard on. Then I got bad hypoglycemia and adrenal fatigue so I knew I'd have to take a drastic step. I've been on a raw diet as of late. I wanted to go full fruititarian but I still don't have the guts to do it mostly because of the hypoglycemia, where you do require some protein to feel normal. They say if you stay on the fruit diet, that goes away...but whatever....
I've been eating salads with dressing made from olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Some of the vegetables have been coming from my own garden. I did add some fruit like apples, pears from our own field and some blueberries. Also another yummy tip is adding crumbled pecans to your salads.
Today, my bowel movement was completely ENCASED in yeast. It was a whitish yellow and just absolutely encased and it was everywhere. When some of you said you've gotten yeast in your stool before, I found it yard to believe, like it was all smoke and mirrors. Wow. I would never believe it if I didn't see it myself.
I've also been using very strong oil of oregano so I don't know if that has anything to do with it....but I still can't get over this. I haven't seen this the whole time I've had Candida.
YEAH!! Awesome job Hollith! Couple of questions for ya. What is your typical day of eating like(breakfast, lunch, snacks??), and are you replacing your good bacteria with oral/enema probiotics? I've been there a couple of times, but it just seems like the bag guys just re-proliferate after any success. BUT, I haven't done an entirely raw diet either. Also, when you think back to yesterday or maybe a day or two before, did you feel really bad and down in the dumps when this yeast massacre was occurring. I always seem to feel REALLY bad, then BOOM, some evidence of yeast dying will happen.(I have sinced learned the ol'herx reaction)
Thanks everyone, I know it's a weird thing to get excited about, but it just made me so happy! Real progress for once! Also, the tingling and numbness in my limbs has stopped and I don't feel so tired or shaky as I did.
My food has been pretty much the same, kind of boring, but also might be considered controversial to some as far as what's allowed, what's not, etc. All the info out there is so conflicting anyway. It makes my head spin!
I've been having a salad, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, sometimes cucumber or shredded cabbage, spinkled with broken-up pecans and a dressing made out of olive oil mixed with apple cider vinegar and Italian seasonings. Sometimes afterwards I'll have a fruit like a pear or apple or some blueberries.
I think the best thing we can do is to boost our immunities with great raw vegetables and some fruits.
It's funny, because I did feel a bit worse, and now I feel a bit better!
