I have been dealing with candida for over 25 years....the gse does not harm the good bacteria...and is a potent candida killer. But you have to do alot of it...for a decent amount of time. I am not saying it will get rid of your candida. so far I haven't found anything that will.....but then I have not pulled out all the stops yet...I did go 6 years without eating a single free Sugar
molecule (ie not fruit, yeasted breads, anything made with any amount of Sugar
in it no matter what type or amount)...I have a long tale to tell.. but basically, I have gotten my candida to where it doesn't bother me too much (I do have a phlegmy cough that is worse when I eat, but not as bad as I used to have it...got rid of it once with the 50 drops of gse 3 times a day protocol...need to do that again... I have also taken tons of probiotics....such as 6 of the 50 billion probiotic capsules 3 times a day for a month....this helps alot...but I am not super strict with my diet anymore, sometimes I eat very sweet things, not often, but I do....then I take 'antidotes'...gse, probiotics, primal defense, plain yogurt.
I have no interest in ANY doctors regular or alternative as they cost too much and do too little.
I think a raw vegan diet with lots of greens helps tremendously...I've done it to good effect, but I have not stayed with it...sometimes wish I were worse off so I would be motivated to stay with it...to me, that is the way to health. Vibrant health. I have seen so many people who have healed themselves of all types of dis-eases with a raw vegan diet and green juices. And everyone who I think is worth anything says that is what you have to do for optimum health. Even if just til you regain your health. You can use it as a therapeutic diet or a way of life.
I only mention it because it works. You want to know what works...that works. And it is not a difficult thing to do, it actually is quite easy...what is hard, is getting your mind around it, understanding it, changing your thought patterns, beliefs, habits, etc.
There are many places to go for info...those who do it best are Storm & Jinjee of the Garden Diet, Nomi Shannon of the Natural Gourmet....and many others... they don't go for alot of hype, complicated, expensive versions...just the real deal.
