Just curious, Michelle... Did the die off symptoms stop or continue while eating cabbage everyday?
Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, etc. are veggies of the cruciferous family. If not completely, COMPLETELY digested they ferment and cause gas. Ever pass a cabbage or broccoli patch that has been harvested and is waiting for the turnover of soil before winter sets in? The farmer lets it decompose/ferment on top of the soil so as to not attract them into the soil.
There is a huge rotting gas smell coming from the decomposing cabbage. With raw foods, though they contain their own enzymes, all that fiber can be harder to digest for people with less than optimal digestion or those with gut problems; candida included. Eating a large amount of cabbage could account for the feeling of die off, when in fact it could be fermenation in process.
