Hello, thank you to those who helped me yesterday begin the protocol. A quick update, which might be of interest to those trying it for the first time. I think I'm going to have a long way to go to relieving my candida and bacterial overgrowth (which was reconfirmed today by a visit to my MD). However, I can say by starting the protocol so far:
a) I've had more energy today than most days. Most of the day, by accident, has turned into a Water Fast which I've never attempted because I've always felt 'too' hungry. (I think this was the bad bugs wanting food. However, today I've been able to do errands and think fairly well on just a Water Fast and 7.5 hours of sleep (although I've started eating organic raw veg now).
b) I've seen some white strings of candida coming out of me.
c) My stools have been formed (not usual unless I take huge amounts of anti-fungal/bacterials. I think my colon is starting to clear old waste out.
I am still getting the usual Herxheimer's reaction of brain fog and upset due to the stuff dying - although, thankfully today it's been a lot less bad than last night! (Also got a little nausea on the first night, but this has subsided and have even raised the dose).
The odd side-effect I've had is:
My scalp is super itchy (and I know I don't have lice or anything like that!) - has anyone else gotten that?
