Stepping up a gear

So far I seem to be having good days and bad days. But the bad days are not too bad.  Just an upset tum and a bit more tired. I’m now taking a different Colloidol Silver as my research suggests that 10 ppm is the standard starting dosage. I’m impatient to get rid of the candida so I figured that the 3ppm would take too long. I am also going to take FOS (fructooligosacharides) which is a type of sugar I believe but it helps to heal the gut wall an feeds the good bugs not the candida. I am also taking l-glutamine which is amino acid which also helps to heal the gut and is good for people who are recovering from illness I believe. I have taken these in the past and they helped a lot so I’m starting them now to boost my fight against the candida.  I am also trying to drink more water especially as its quite hot at the moment. My energy levels are quite good (much better than last time) so I am hoping that all my efforts are working! If anyone has any comments or suggestions please let me know!  

Update

I have been trying to keep to the diet though its not always easy.  I’m still taking everything (I rattle as I walk!!) and I have seen a slight improvement in my energy levels which is encouraging.  My local health shop woman looked at me weirdly as I bought another bottle of weak colloidol silver today.  She asked if it tasted metallic! Bless. This version doesnt taste of anything as its only 3ppm.  I know people who take very strong versions but this version worked last time. so I’ll stick to it.  I also use to fight off bugs, sore throats etc..  I think its fantastic.  Last time I had candida I would get absolutely exhausted so I’m relieved this time is less severe.  But I’ve foolishly had some late nights (look I’m blogging at 11pm way past my bedtime – I’m an idiot!) and I am one of those people who needs their sleep otherwise I get grumpy and my immunity lowers, which the candida loves.  So on that note I’m off to bed! Good night all x

Day 4 – not so great

Today was ok I guess, not so great but partly my own fault. I think because things were going well I’ve become a bit complacent and actually forgot to take my silver today during the day today. Its meant that the candida has created a windy tum and a bit of the hayfever returned. I also felt run down and tired. I should listen to my own advice! Its hard sticking to the anti candida diet but I can tell its helping and hopefully I might lose a few pounds too! I also need to drink more water to flush out my system. I am trying to plan my meals so I dont get caught out or end up starving. I can recommend the Beat Candida Through Diet book by Gill Jacobs. Its certainly gave me loads more ideas for what I can eat. If you have suffered from candida for a long time then I can recommend a book by Michael Murray called ‘Chronic Candidiasis’. It gives you a good understanding of why you might find it difficult to get rid of your candida problem and plenty of natural remedies which really work. Its thanks to this book that I started using capryllic acid which is excellent

Day 4

Today was an ok day. I think because things were going well I’ve become a bit complacent and actually forgot to take my silver today during the day today. Its meant that the candida has created a windy tum and a bit of the hayfever returned. I also felt run down and tired. I should listen to my own advice! Its hard sticking to the anti candida diet but I can tell its helping and hopefully I might lose a few pounds too! I also need to drink more water to flush out my system.

My Mistakes

So for the last two years I have considered myself as a former candida sufferer and I have been merrily eating whatever I want although I do limit sugary stuff as I dont want to put any more weight. And now all of a sudden, almost overnight I am ill with candida again. To say I am gutted and depressed is an almighty understatement. So I sitting here writing this blog in an attempt to keep sane as this feels vaguely constructive.

How did this happen again? Ok firstly I got complacent and didnt panic when I ran out of my probiotic, I didnt even realise that I had also run out of my iron supplements some time ago (boosts your immune) and I started to worry about some stuff that isnt worth worrying about. I bet the candida couldn’t believe its luck! And what did I do when I felt a bit fed up and run down? Treated myself to a glass of my favourite red wine (sugar and yeast!) !!! Yes I know I sound totally stupid but I am telling you guys in the hope that I can stop someone else making the same mistake. Within a few days I am sneezing (hay fever), feeling sick (food intolerances) and with a foggy head (goodness knows). I am trying my best to be positive. I’ve beaten it before and I will do it again, I keep telling myself. So this what I am going to do:-

– stop eating sugar / alcohol / wheat
– limit potatoes
– get some Garden of Life Primal Defence asap
– get some iron tablets fast!
– take capryllic acid tablets
– take pau d’arco
– take weak colloidol silver

The last one is my secret weapon as it seems to zap the candida very quickly. Though I have taken it for 2 days now and no reduction in the symptoms. In fact I seem worse 🙁 I will assume this die off as I havent taken my own advice (below) and done the anti candida diet first. The simple reason is that I cant bear the thought of having this candida for any longer than I have to. I want my old life back again asap. If the weak silver doesnt work then I will move onto the stronger stuff if necessary.

Mentally I am re-reading Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life. I think its a fantastic book! If Louise can cure her terminal cancer I am sure I can get rid of yeast!
