Thanks everyone. Some of the newer folks around here won't know me, but for the old timers, I'm sure my name is familiar. I have been fighting this demon for 13 years now. I did the candida diet originally for 6 mos. to a year and along with the supplements, didn't do a thing. Like Shroom, I am a researchaholic. I am a firm believer that it's not just candida, but that candida is only a symptom of a bigger picture and that is why the diets, even with antifungals, rarely work in the more severe cases like I have. Mine is a whole gamut of issues like LGS, EBV, probably parasites and so on.
Today, I had just had enough of everything. I am so sick of this and being overweight, no matter what I try and feeling sick and in pain all the time. So far now I am back on the diet, knowing at the very least that not eating sugar, dairy and wheat (the three worst in my book), is the best start while I figure out a plan. My husband is deployed right now and has another 5-6 months to go. I am back home with my family in CA during this time and plan on going on a very hardcore attack plan. We don't have as many good resources back in TX.
I am going to be treating with Humaworm soon, and I am addressing my acid reflux naturally, as well as possibly adding Lugols
(everyone seems to swear by it helping so many issues), doing the diet, as well as going into hypnotheraphy, in hopes of at least trying to reprogram my brain to heal my body. It can't hurt and I know so many people who have had great help and results with hypnosis. I will let you know what I find that works and what doesn't.
