I've been on the candida diet since May. A few times I was naughty and ate some Sugar containing stuff. I still do it sometimes. It is terrible but sometimes I just can't handle my cravings.
I started the Bowel Cleanse with IF#1&2 but I stopped because I messed up with icecream and cakes.
I'm sure it is the candida talking (and maybe other parasites).
My problem is: to kill candida, you have to first clean out the bowel and do parasites cleanse. But to do a bowel cleanse, you have to eat lots of vegetables and only good food. But because I was naughty I stopped after 1 week.
How long does it take anyway to get rid of candida? I'm just so fed up with it and with all these cravings!
Many people reported that their cravings reduced with the bowel and parasites cleanse but I haven't managed to do that.
How can I do a succesful parasites cleanse and Bowel Cleanse and handle all these cravings at the same time?
Anybody who got rid of candida already?
It just seems so stubborn and is getting on my nerves.
I really want to get over all this problem and just follow my healthy diet. Also, I really have to contentrate on my studies and I can't if I still have this candida problem, it's just ruling my life!
Your Sugar cravings are because of the Candida/parasites which THRIVE on sugar. The more Sugar you feed it the more these fungi will proliferate.
You must have missed a lot of great information on the "Natural Healing Solutions" topic on this forum.
You said: "Your Sugar cravings are because of the Candida/parasites which THRIVE on sugar. The more Sugar you feed it the more these fungi will proliferate."
Thank you, I already knew this...
But that was not the question I asked.
It takes as long as it takes! Every case is different and what works for one person will not necessarily work for another. I was able to overcome problems with candida, but it took several years and approaching it from many angles. Candida thrives as a result of a compromised immune system, dysfunctions in the digestive system, hormonal imbalances in the endocrine system and an overload of toxins. All the anti-fungals in the world will not take care of the problem if you do not address it on all levels. It requires modifications in diet, lifestyle, stress management, eliminating toxins and rebuilding your immune system. Diet is a vital part of the program and there is no magic formula for dealing with the cravings. Just like breaking any addiction or bad habit you have to just do it! I KNOW it is not easy...I was on a strict protein and low-carb diet for three years and I had a vicious sweet tooth! I did occasionally cheat...and I also paid for it! I had minimal success with Nystatin, Nizoral and Diflucan...but had a major improvement with an herbal colon cleansing program (Holistic Horizons). I also had good results with an herbal combination called Biocidin. But it also required drastic changes in my diet, exercise, stress reduction, supplements, enzymes, probiotics, avoiding toxic exposures, changing personal care and cleaning products, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and a lot of introspection and addressing unresolved emotional issues. I felt worse before I felt better...but I DID get better...and you can, too!
Getting rid of Candida does NOT have to take long with the proper protocol. Nystatin, Nizoral and Diflucan, do absoultely nothing to go after and destroy the CAUSE. These products are useless, as they put a temporary band-aid on a progressive disease. Again colon cleansing is only temporary and does NOTHING for a systemic Candida infection.
If you will read my post again you will see that I stated that a holistic, multiphase approach is necessary for addressing systemic candidiasis. You are correct that anti-fungals do not address the cause of this condition, but they are beneficial when implemented as part of the program. I also disagree with your statement that colon cleansing does nothing for Candida. Eliminating toxins is a necessary component of restoring health so that the body can heal and rebuild itself. Colon cleansing is the first line of defense with any detoxification program, and additional cleansing of the liver, kidneys, skin, lungs, lymph and blood are also indicated. Any condition can benefit from detoxification...including Candida.
'Long' is a relative term. As I stated...it takes as long as it takes, and the length of time necessary to address this condition differs for everyone.
*I am very curious regarding why you are disputing my posts...this is the second one today.
I am in total agreement with what you said above. In order to be rid of systemic Candida, you do need diet changes to a more sensible diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegtables. This has to be followed with lots of water, exercise and probiotics and anything else that will enable a speedier recovery I doubt very much if there can be any faster or shorter way that is fully effective long term.
Of equal importance too is that the condition may get worse before it gets better. The endocrine system, the immune system will be affected together with hormonal imbalance. The severe condition is known as the APICH syndrome. You can read more about his at this link: http://www.cmtomlinson.freeuk.com/digestv1i3.htm
Thanks for the link...looks very interesting. Without a doubt, there are no quick or miracle cures for this condition. As with most chronic conditions, it is a dis-ease of lifestyle and requires time, patience and numerous lifestyle changes to address it. A holistic approach is always the best for restoring health and vitality.
