This is an old post– probably weeks old. I’m posting it today because it’s so relevant.This morning I began my day by
- drinking a shot of Apple cider vinegar (apparently it’s a soldier on my side in fight against candida
- drinking 2 tablespoons of psyllium husk (all of the fiber I need for today)
- The following vitamins: folic acid, Ferrous Sulfate/Iron, B12
- Double dose of Claritin D 24hrs
- Pau D’ Arco (natural anti fungal also to combat candida)
This entry is from early on in the process.
Right now, I feel so good. Better than I have in months if not years. This fungus has gotten out of control and was making me CRAZY. I haven’t felt so out of sorts in my life…. It was like my body was not my own and no one could figure out what was wrong. Well, since I found out that there is an overgrowth of candida in my system I’ve been able to take steps to get m life back.
I’ve changed my diet so I eat things that will starve the candida, not nourish it. For breakfast I had two eggs and that was it. Lunch was kale, bok choy, and turnip greens with sesame seed sauteed in extra virgin coconut oil. I also downed some psyllium husk and mixed black walnut oil with water and had that as well. Then I was still hungry so I made a fruit salad with strawberries, blueberries, Brown Cow Yogurt, and a granola bar.
For dinner I’m having tacos — sorta. 😉 Corn tortillas with sauteed spinach, quinoa, salsa, and a meat substitute. I’m drinking some of the bulk tea I bought from the co-op, doing laundry, writing a paper, and planning a backpacking/camping trip with friends.
I’m also on an anti-fungal medication and will be for the next week. I didn’t know how badly I felt until now. My hip caused me excruciating pain to the point I was walking with a limp. I couldn’t inhale fully, and began wheezing as soon as I awoke. My stomach was overly bloated and my energy was drained. I couldn’t exercise, whenever I ate anything I doubled over from the shooting pains in my stomach. It’s nice to feel relief. I’m only three days into the perscription meds and 12 hours into the dietary improvements and I feel FANTASTIC. I’m excited to be able to run again. I’d been biking because 1) I loved it and two it took the weight off of my hip and ankle.
I feel so much better.
