Tara - much of what you described, I was experiencing prior to taking several rounds of antibiotics for the ear and sinus infectiosn that would NOT go away - I had terrible nausea and vertigo - I kept falling down! But the antibiotics were the start of the real downfall. . . .I started to get weak, loose my short-term memory, and general confusion set in, so much so that I could not work. We looked at my diet, which has been low carb, and we upped the carbs (vegetable sources) and calories - still, no relief. I had already stopped all meds, with my Doctor's approval. Then I came to this site, and I am convinced that I have severe systemmic Candida - including the effects on my sinus and ears - which, as you know are connected. I have started a cleanse. P&B shakes, and tomorrow will have time to do a coffee enema
protocol. I have increased my already positive water intake.
Thing is, the Doctor could not figure out why I went down hill so quickly - and why I even got a sinus/ear infection after not having any for a year - I have had several allergies to mold and other fall-spring rotting flora - and now he agrees that since I started eating more cheese - all other dairy was cut out - that the candida was going to town in me! Since cutting down on cheese, increasing water, and the P&B shakes (have so far, had larger BM - still not 2 x a day, but I get very sick just prior to a BM - and that tells me there is such toxic gunk stting waiting to be expelled).
I wonder if you have Candida in your ears, nose, throat?
Omni - thanks for the suggestion of MSM in ear drops! I am going to suggest that to my father!
Everyone, take care, and I sure appreciate this forum - so much caring and no judgement! What a blessing you all are.
