daermo - Recovery from Candida
Update on my progress (10 day mark~)
Honestly I cant remember which day I started on my new diet
but I figure its been around 10 days~
For those that read my previous post you will remember that
one of the main reasons I started this diet was because of
candida. I really didnt know how long I could handle being on
the diet and if it would do anything (and in reality if I did
not see any outside progress my motivation would be ALOT
My diet is basically a mix between a raw foods
diet/anti-candida diet/and moreless's alka. acid diet
The 2 most obvious signs of yeast problems were a rash like
issue (looked like heavy peeling of skin) around where my
mustache (if I had one) and chin area.
And a heavily coated tongue (white). It's a little hard to
label the other symptoms as yeast since in reality they could
stem from numerous conditions.
The facial stuff was fairly new ie 6 months old with it
growing as time went on.
I've had a white tongue for ... geez I dont know how long; I
figure about 5-7 years but it could be as long as 10 years.
I've been checking my tongure pretty regularly and I just
checked it ...
It appeared to me that at least 1/3 of my tongue's white
coating was gone. And the wierd thing is I didnt notice this
earlier or the past few days.
-I would say I check my tongue at least a couple times a day-
I really should of taken a picture of my tongue before I
started this diet (but I thought that I wouldnt get this quick
of a change or I wouldnt be able to keep the diet).
Obviously I could careless about the 'asthetic' appearance of
my tongue; but the change in the coating lets me know that my
body is changing and something is going on at least.
I really havn't been taking any anti-fungals. Although ...
I have taken about 5-6 caps of primal defense 1x every other
I have eaten some onions; not alot just some with my salad
(every other day~)
I have eaten 2 coconuts so far since I have been on this diet
(and I'm eating some now as I type this)
and I have eaten cilantro (just a little)
If I remember right cilantro is used to kill parasite eggs,
and I read on this forum that coconuts are high in caprylic
acid, and onions are natural antifungals, and the primal
defense has soil organisms.
But as you can see I really wasnt trying to concentrate on a
Oh I forgot to mention; I have eaten fruit liberally in the
past 10 days.
Usually its at least once a day (although a couple days I
skipped it); today I actually ate a whole pinapple (a rather
large fruit amount compared to my previous eatings).
I've only been taking a version of the alkalyzing drink once
every other day.
I got excited and wanted to share my progress :)
oh and to top it off I've lost about 8lbs.
