I have been taking Cranberry for my kidney infection and I am getting die-off. My head is all foggy, lost my appetite and a bit of dirrohea etc. I know its slightly antibacterial but is this a bit extreme to get die-off from Cranberry? Anyone else had this? I must be very toxic. (I am also taking a small amount of Urva Usi so it could be that as well?)
I found the cranberry to be more than slightly antibacterial, it is one thing that has really made a difference. It and uva ursi got rid of my kidney problem. While going through that, I also ate a lot of watermelon, celery, and parsley. Be sure and drink plenty of water. I've had so many die offs it's hard to say what cause them. Cranberry juice has been a big help ever since I've been fighting this, it works for the candida too.
Well I am glad I am not imagining it and that you also found cranberry gave you die-off! Sometimes I just wonder if its me that is ultra sensitive. How long did it take you to clear your kidney infection? Obviously these herbs you recommended that I try will take longer than antibiotics so I dont expect them to work overnight. I am only taking a very low dose uva ursi because again I suffer die-off. thanks
No Natalie - my kidneys are not feeling any better. I feel so poorly, weak, tired but I am drinking lots and still using the Cranberry. Thing is I havent taken much of the Uva Ursi (only a small dose). I am getting worried that I am going to need antibiotics. They will make me even more poorly - more candida, more food intolerances, leaky gut so if I can treat it herbally I would prefer to do that. Probably will just take longer?
No I havent tried one of those infred saunas. I did wonder a while back about them but didnt know where to buy one in uk and I thought they looked quite big? At the moment I cant even stand a hot bath or hot sunshine (not that we've had much) so I think I might struggle. I would have thought that detoxifying my liver would have taken the load off my kidneys - unless my infection is linked to the yeast/candida.
cant say i blame ya hun i felt the same with kidney infections so i know how u feel i was so wiped out tired with them but i never had any die off with cranberry juice i just got better just take probitcs if u can when u take antibitics have u spoke to that clinic yet?think be good idea like i did to have tests
at least im going to have sum answers soon im still having my silver 2 filling sout next week one of them is very sensitive so it needs to come out
I can understand how you felt Natalie. My kidney infection is wiping me out. Did you have lots of pain?
I spoke to the clinic yesterday but they do use drugs (antifungal) after tests etc. I will give it some thought because I have an aversion to drugs! Thats what got me in this mess...years of antibiotics and antidepressants.
I think you are in my area then next week because your dentist lives in my town. He is good and I have heard lots of good reports about him. My sister went to him for her Amalgams removed years ago and still goes along with her children. You will be in good hands.
yes my kidnsys ached and hurt so much and felt like they were bubbling i cant explain it it was awful so i know how u feel i even felt bruised around my kidneys my bladder burnt to i wasnted to die because the bloody antibtics didnt work they found blood in my urine i had endo so bad last year i had agonsing periods now i dont have any pain i mean since i got my bowels moving again and i go regulary everyday i dont get period pain much now dont u think thats strange?most people with candida have bad period pain i dont now its gone i think it is parstites and leaky gut and being constipted was making everything worse now i go 3to4 times a day they are sumtimes mushy loose like u get with parstites but i still go after meals so its helped me feel so much better
they did ladywear but because i was so constipted i think toxins it kept coming back so i didnt wanna keep taking antibiotics to long as they damage all your good flora i took a thing called bowel build had a few colinics and that got me going regular i think parstites caused my constipation i still think ihave them but not as bad as i did as paragone helped and i had die off i didnt on antifungals or diet
even though i go regulary i never seen any yeast like others do i get my stool tests back next week
You might try more uva ursi, the recomended dose, anyway. If you don't get better soon, you might want to go the md route. Candida you can fight, with some kidney infections antibiotics might be the best course.
Yes will up the dose of uva ursi I think. I have only been taking one capsule of the solgar brand and it does say three per day. I am only getting a small amount. Also ordered some grapefruit seed extract too but then its coping with all the die-off.
I take a lot of uva usuri and it really kills the candida- it's a natural antibiotic so I would take that before trying the drug antibiotics. I take a product called Yeast Max that has the uva usri in it as well as many other anti-fungals. The product was given to me by my doctor, don't know if you can find it online but after some bad die-off I began feeling much better. I have also been doing a lot of fresh garlic, coconut oil, xylitol, oregano, olive leaf, etc. I think I am making some progress after a few months of die-off, my stamina is coming back. I need to get back on the juicing though, I have gotten a bit lazy.
Do you get urine/kidney infections too? I have just upped my dose of uva ursi. Funny but then when I went to the toilet again there was even more foam in my urine. I dont think thats good - my doctor said the foam was protein. I was hoping the foam was the baddies coming away? I dont know why I am getting more protein/foam when I am taking things that should clear the infection
That's the strange thing, I have only gotten one bladder infection before, in my early twenties from the birth control pill. I was getting vaginal yeast infections then too but when I went off the pill, did not experience those again. It's just strange that I have such horrible candida yet do not experience vaginal yeast infections, it's been years since I have had one yet my candida is very bad. I'm confused, I don't know what is causing all these problems, I know I have adrenal issues, hypothyroid, candida. I also have anxiety that comes and goes. I'm driving back up tp Reno on Sunday to see my doctor again. I was feeling better but have been feeling ill again. The last few days I started to feel better again though when I upped my dose of the yeast max.
My friend has fairly severe candida and hasn't gotten a yeast infection from it. She USED to get them...not now. I, on the other hand, did get yeast infections, but oddly enough, when tested at the GYN office, they said I tested negative for yeast. And I was tested twice. I don't get that one!
I had foam issues for a long time it wasn't till a month or so ago that this finally cleared up. When I having the kidney infection I took more vitamin C. You might want to add two or three grams of C a day, that might help keep you away from the mds.
I killed the fungus from my mouth and throat with cranberries. I just chewed frozen cranberries on two days, and its gone. It absolutely kills the fungus. I found cranberry juice sweetened with stevia, and, because it tasted so good, I kept drinking numerous glasses of it. I had the worst die-off the following day! I was totally unprepared - this is all so new to me and I didn't even know what die-off is....I couldn't remember anything, my brain was a total mess...and I had a doctor's appointment that day. I was totally exhausted, my brain was foggy to the point I had trouble talking. Now, the following day I feel great - I don't think my brain has been this clear in years. I have been using garlic and eating rutabaga for a week before the cranberry, and I didn't experience any noticeable symptoms of a die-off until I added the cranberry. Now I'm on antifungal medicine, but as soon as that is over, I will definitely get some more of the cranberry juice - and this time I will be prepared, and only drink it when I don't have to go anywhere the following day. It definitely works.
