Maybe some symptoms everyone has is from information overload. I mean seriously there's some quacks on this forum no offence.
I keep encouraging everyone to simplify. Elimination diet, and try to really decipher what's doing what. I know everyone's trying all this different stuff..I'm guilty of going down that road too.
These days I keep it simple, because it is. Most of the time we are still eating foods that irritate us and we blame it on the Candida. Or we set out to drink enough water but we just don't, or we have like 10g of fiber a day and that's just not enough to push stool, with or without Candida issues. It's an overall bad intestinal environment most of us are dealing with. Candida is a major culprit but it's more than that.
You gotta be aware of what's happening, and notice offending foods. I find I can have a little Sugar
without feeling that the Candida is suddenly thriving out of control. Same with yeast, like if I eat a gluten-free pizza that has yeast.. it's not this huge downfall that I notice the next day... But say I drank a glass of milk, it would be very noticable and I probably would be messed up for a few days. What does "messed up" mean? It means irritation, imflammation.. the things we don't want. It might have nothing to do with Candida but with constant irritation, the gut ain't going to function properly and things like Candida will have a chance to take control.
There's no exact way to do this. There are so many things going on, someone will always come on here trying to bring some new research to the table. Research is great, but there's so many variables
Whoever claims they have the cure is a criminal of health
We all know this..its a whole approach..it's everything..exercising, water, fiber, vitamins, minerals, not eating too late, not skipping meals, balanced diet, identifying allergies, restoring gut flora, improving digestion, detoxing at a healthy pace, there could be neurological, mental, spiritual issues... and the list goes on and on
If you want to get the yeast in check, first understand that it was always there and will never go away. The reason why it's out of whack is because something is not right.. maybe it's stress..maybe its something you can't let go from your past that keeps you in a state of stress or anxiety. Could very well be the reason for some.
There are a lot of helpful ideas out there, but not 1 of them is the absolute cure. I speak highly of this probiotic I'm taking and even though it's the only thing I'm taking, there's so much more going on that's personal to me...like the foods I'm eating and the foods I'm avoiding.. I'm no longer in the dark about what is doing what. This is a great help. I also drink adequate water, and I get adequate fiber. I also don't drink alcohol or smoke. I got my Amalgams
removed by a dentist who knew what he was doing. I rest a lot. Some people are always on the go, so no matter what they do, they're still screwed. Some people don't move enough and as the old saying goes, what you don't use, you lose. Toxins build up and never get out through the skin..they start finding home in the joints, in the brain, in the crevices... This could be a major problem..there's many possibilities.
I'm not 100% yet..I can admit that, but coming from a time when I had to roll around with a pillow under me just to get gas out..I'm really far along in recovery. So I speak from personal experience. Extremely messed up cholesterol levels, hyperoxaluria, Thalassemia minor..heavy gluten intolerance, potentially celiac... I've got things I'm up against, but there's not 1 thing that's going to make this all better.. There's many things and even though I grab a tip from here and an idea from there...managing my health is going to ultimately be personal to me.
And the MOST IMPORTANT PART IS SELF-AWARENESS, understand what your body is telling you, and get some diagnostics done that are PERSONAL to you, which will help prevent illnesses and help crack the code of YOUR body
So to anyone coming on here forcing their opinion on others or arguing if someone disagrees (you know who you are)... Buzz off already ! You don't know the cure because you aren't me, or anyone else. You're just you..
