I am still here and trying to do my best with the diet. The problem is that the diet is becoming more strict than it was at the beginning. I do feel better in most areas but in others it is likely not going to get better. The good thing is that I am sure I know why this is. I am extremly sensitive to mold, not only to eat but also to breathe. I have stayed for a very long part of my life under exposure to mold. I lived in a flat where I had black mold exposure, of course I did not know that there was mold. At the same time I was working in an office where there was some mold contained in the very old system of heating. Another source was my cottage. The worst mold of all is the black one, to which I am extremely sensitive up to now. I am sensitive as well to other kinds of toxins from molds, of course it depends on the kind and intensity. The problem is that here no one will help you with this kind of sensitivity. It causes me very serious problems in the nervous system and brain, as well as depression and anxiety. Also I am losing weight very rapidly (5 kg per month) if I stay in the mold area (what is moldy for me it is not moldy for others, I have become extremely sensitive). Of course I have also the typical symptoms of food allergy after breathing mold like : beiing extremely tearful, over sensitivity, sadness, and irrational behavior ….. When I am sick I am screaming very loudly or doing other crazy things….
When I breathe mold it causes the Candida overgrow. Also I start to have horrible cravings (of course it depends how much and what kind). When there is only a little bit of mold other than the black one I have problems just in my nose or eyes. Another problem that is still very serious is Women’s Hormone Shift.
There is some very good news. First of all I know already what gives me trouble. Also my general health has improved incredibly. Since I started the diet it was about two and half years ago, I have not been using antibiotics or other drugs. I used to use antibiotics 3-5 times a year. I had also been prescribed a lot hormones for some gynecological problems. Now I know that it was wrong, but the doctors in my country always treated my problems with these remedies. Also I did take a lot of pills for aches from my head down to my stomach or just the ladies’ horrible menstrual pain. Or my awful migraine that I had sometimes up to 3 times a week and had to take the strongest pills that exist. My mother had the same problems… Now I have been all these years on the diet without any pills. And I do not see any doctor for myself. Also my immune system has strengthened a lot. When the people around me are ill I do not catch cold normally, or just have a light one for one or two days.
I am still on a very strict diet stage one at all times. But I cannot eat any grains or legumes. So what I eat is a lot of salad and vegetables (fresh, boiled, or prepared on the pan with healthy oil) and a little bit of brown rice (very occasionally), potatoes (very occasionally) and sometimes meat. With the last one I have o lot of problems because I have to find a fresh cut and it is almost impossible in my country. I have also found that I cannot keep food in the freezer longer than (I do not know the exact time) maybe one or two weeks, otherwise I get sick.
I feel very good in the mountains, especially in the winter. But my sensitivity has made it almost impossible for me to travel. This year I had to change my accommodations 3 times during one week because of the presence of very small amounts of black mold in the room. Sports give me a lot of vitality, but the problem is what to eat so that I get the energy that I need from food.
Please, could you give me advice on what to do? I wrote en e-mail to Colet Lahoz, wanting to come to her clinic, but at the end her response was that the plane and hotel there could be too toxic for me, and that you could help me more with this issue J
I am sure I am on the right path, but when I feel sick I feel so miserable and desperate. Also the situation with my ill father does not help me at all.
Kind regards from Central Europe,
