I've made it 2 weeks so far on this candida diet and it's been 7 weeks since I've had wine or any kind of alcohol. I'm not sure how long I'll need to stay on this diet. I have seen some improvements since I eliminated all processed foods and coffee 3 weeks ago. I think though what has made the biggest difference is when I started drinking more water every day. Since then I've started having more energy and waking up in the morning not feeling like a zombie. I'm sure the diet and other things I'm taking have also helped.
I started the Ulitimate Colon Cleanse program this week which also includes a parasite cleanse. It lasts 30 days and looks to be a pretty easy program. I drink a fiber shake in the mornings, take 2 parasite pills, a probiotic which I was already taking and drink some tea before bed. I'm also taking other vitamins and supplements throughout the day. It's so much to remember that I have had to create a schedule so I don't forget to take something.
This is what my day currently looks like and will continue for the next 28 days.
5:00 Antigens + B12
5:05 parasite pills + 8 oz water
5:25 Fiber Shake + enzyme + Vitamin C
8:00 hot cereal (alternating between brown rice, amaranth, buckwheat, 7 grain, oat) + enzyme + Vitamin D + 2 multivitamins
6:30 Dinner + enzyme + Multivitamin + Biotin
8:30 Detox Tea
I made an appointment with a mercury free/safe dentist in Bellevue to have my silver fillings removed since it is most likely leaching mercury into my system and could be another cause for candida. There are a couple of other things that are more likely to have caused it like the 15 years I was on birth control or the multiple antibiotics I took for recurring UTI's and all the prescriptions I tried for my dermatitis I'm sure didn't help. After having that removed I'll be doing a heavy metal detox though I'm not sure which it will be. The dentist has one they recommend and my doc wants to see me to discuss his recommendations.
It's been about 3 weeks now since I've used my prescription Protopic for my dermatitis which is pretty impressive considering I used to not be able to go more than 7 days without needing it to reduce the red, flaky itchiness. My dermatitis isn't completely gone but it is doing a bit better. I'm hoping it will be completely gone within the next month or two.
