Good luck Tarilee aren't you moving?
I backed off to starting my treatments every 3 days it gives me a day to hit bottom and then a day to rest and then the next day to get back to normal.
When my Naturopath first started me doing the candida cleansing she had me douche with apple cider vinegar (which does the same thing it leaves me in the black depression) as well as drinking any sorts of vinegar and lemon and lime juice do the same thing. (weird huh!)
When I first "got sick" my body went bezerk I literally woke up one morning I had black cirlces under my eyes and my body went into this fight or flight state. I started having manic depressive mood swings (that would cycle every week) I reacted to everything- fruits (especially citrus fruits) I could not eat an orange to save my life (I can now just oranges though) pineapples still give me a huge buzz. I couldn't eat a thing because I was so nervous I lost weight I was digesting food at the speed of light I started getting diahhrea the only thing that would slow down my digestion was eating constantly (so then I gained weight) I became sensitive to light my ears were ringing I couldn't take vitamins I reacted to them too only in the last 2 years I have been able to take them again I couldn't exercise because it made me manic. It was the worst time of my life. Things have chilled out a little my DR's don't return my phone calls I am hyper sensitive to everything. My thyroid tests came back normal, adrenal tests came back normal I can't get massages or do any kind of body work because it makes me depressed. And when I get in that depression I can't like snap out of it it sticks around for months.
In frustration my Psychiatrist told me to go try acupuncture. And it helped. It was the only thing. I do my own treatments now because it's expensive and I am on SSI at the moment. I do the acupuncture once a day. I can at least control that in case I start to feel bad.
So anyways about 2 years ago I was feeling brave and I decided to try walking again ( I was in college when I got sick and I had to quit execising & stuff and really missed it) so I started slow. It made me depressed for about 4 weeks and then slowly it started to make me feel better! It helps with my mood, it helps with my cravings it helps to balance me out and now I can't stop HAHAHA I've lost weight I am back to 120 and still losing Although it's not as detrimental now because I feel really good and that is what matters and hopefully finding this balance of doing the anti candida treatments. (I am not eating fruits btw
Thanks for the great advice Ashley! I appreciate it immensely. The hardest part for me is feeling like I am the only one who has to deal with this nonsense. I am 34 and single and sick and trying to get healthy enough that I can take care of myself. When I get the die-off I can't focus on anything except how awful I feel. I am sure you guys can appreciate that
"I don't feel good.. I don't feel good.. I don't feel good... Oh my god I don't feel good" Right now I am living with my Sister and her Boyfriend and she says to me "If I hear you say one more word about candida"... and then she gives me the look.
I am sure she's got it too! She is happy on her Lamicil. HAHAHA
And that is the short version HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA
So I bought some BIOTIN is 1500 mcg enough you think or should I up it? THX my new beautiful friends?
