For years i've had some kind of illness i couldn't really define (always drained, brain fog, get cold real easy and seemed to have a whole host of delayed-onset allergy reactions). I tested positive for candida and thyroid antibodies back in september. Since then i've been researching around and rummaging through any material i can.
In the beginning, i picked up a few pieces here and there. I read that Dr. Kharrazian book on thyroid ("why do i still have thyroid symptoms? when my lab tests are normal"). It was very informative. But treatment would have been seriously expensive and I have no money. And besides, in time i learned that the thyroid was only one piece of the puzzle.
I learned that candida, thyroid, immune system and delayed-onset allergies are all interrelated. It all starts with an initial intruder (parasite, virus, bacteria) or element (prolonged antibiotic, continual stress, poor nutrition) that crashes your immune system, which in turn crashes your thyroid, and then the rest of the body's systemic functions and processes crash (because the thyroids main role is supplying energy to each process, thus allowing each to function), and then everything starts to shut down and you get candida (bad bacteria growth) and delayed-onset allergies (immune system goes haywire and tags the wrong stuff). So this is the gist of what i've learned over the past few months, and it was further solidified by reading the " Yeast Infection No More
" book you are talking about. I finished the book two weeks ago. I read it on my computer screen. It's an eBook.
Basically, the greatest thing about this candida book is it has tons of information that i didn't hear about anywhere else. It filled in the gaps, gave me reasons why certain things perpetuate candida, reasons why diet alone is not enough to kill candida, and more. It gives all the details. And to me, the most important thing in it, is it gives a 5-step plan to beating candida, actually killing it for good. It gives intuitive explanations. Also, bear in mind, that i am merely responding to the content. I have not started the 5-step protocol yet.
I have been waiting on the results of a parasite test before i start. Aside from the good content, the book kind of reads like a blog, like its just paragraph of information after paragraph of information, and doesn't really have a comprehensive guide at the end to just follow. So at the end i had to compile a 5-page draft myself with all the guidelines to follow for when i do the protocol personally. An inconvenience, but negligible when you weigh the wealth of information. Another detail, presently i am trying to decide between two Candida plans, the Dr. McCombs Plan and the Yeast Infection No More
Plan. The Dr. McCombs Plan has an easy-to-follow guide. This is a definite plus because the actual protocol for killing candida is not easy, it takes discipline, it takes time and it takes an understanding of toxins and the die-off effect (basically knowing that at times you feel worse before you feel better). But i don't know if it would kill candida as successfully as the Yeast Infection No More
Plan (YINM) because the YINM Plan has elements and details to it (specifics in the diet, juice cleanse, parasite cleanse, and it identifies the best products for killing candida, and the best things to restore good bacteria, including prebiotic foods and probiotic supplements). But the way that the YINM Plan is juxtaposed together might be a bit more complicated to follow.
However, in my case, having such a prolonged and serious case of candida, the specifics in the protocol lead me to believe that it would be a better option.
But who knows, maybe the Dr. McCombs Plan would do the job just as good, but i can't be sure. That's why i came to this blog site "curezone", to find out if anyone that did the Dr. McComb Plan killed their candida for good, all gone, and whether it cured serious cases. I'll keep searching. I've been to the Dr. McComb but I don't really trust testimonials given on the doctor's own site. I hope this gives you some kind of answer. I am highly skeptical of most things too, especially things that want me to shell out money, but to me, learning the constructs behind whatever illness i may have is priceless, and after reading the Yeast Infection No More book i am glad i went out on a limb. Hope that helps.
