@Helmax The reason I stopped the diet is because at a certain point I stop making any progress and I just get fed up with having to stay on such a strict diet if it is not going to cure me 100%. Sure it made me feel a lot better and improved some things, but to me it wasn't worth sacrificing the great taste of food, because as you said "The Candida infestation can't be cured until your immune system is repaired"
That quote really hits home on how I feel. I know deep down something else must be wrong. I never took a huge amount of anti-biotics, and my diet was pretty standard just like every other teenager at the time.
My thoughts on Candida are "If I don't know what is causing Candida, I'm never going to be able to cure it. Sure the diet will help the symptoms, but do I really want to stay on this diet the rest of my life since I can't figure out the root cause?"
I have stopped drinking alcohol. I know how bad it is for Candida. I am very serious about getting better. Like I said, it has been over 10 years. Pretty much my entire teenage-to mid twenties *the glory days where you're suppose to have fun and not worry about life* were burdened with Candida. While kids were going out and having fun, some nights I stayed in researching why this was happening to me. I've never been more serious about getting better. Defeating what ever is wrong with me will make me feel so free.
I am very interested in your protocol, but let's both think about this. Will the protocol even benefit me if something else is wrong with me other than Candida? For example my low white blood cell count. My hematologist recognizes my count is low, but has no idea why and wants to take a bone marrow sample to eliminate possible reasons. She does however acknowledge that a low white blood cell count could lead to something like Candida. How am I suppose to find any success on your protocol, if there is something else wrong. That has been my dilemma my entire life.
