Candida is making my life miserable
I am miserable. The itching is miserable. I'm sick of the candida diet and discouraged. Woke up this morning and my candida white tongue was even whiter and furrier than normal. I only slipped up a little. I am so discouraged and itchy and I feel so defeated right now. Plus, early menopause. I really could kill a dead rat right now I am so miserable.
I just need some love today
Sounds like your having a pretty crappy, time, so sorry for you.
Sometimes we have to go through these difficult phases in order to get to the health at the other end, sometimes the tunnel is dark before it gets light. :)
And remember, there are various types of anti candida diets, very different to each other. Give the one you are on a red hot try, but if there isn't a positive outcome, try another.
Also, we often expect results to be instantaneous in our modern lifestyle, but the good, sold changes are most often slow changes.
Hope it gets better for you soon! :)
You know, I always used to make fun of people online giving cyber hugs. Thought it was so stupid. Now I'm accepting your hug. My disease has humbled me.

I know, the slow changes. I know I know. Yet I need the reminder. Thank you, klomasius.
Oh, can you tell me a bit about the different candida diets? or link if possible? They all seem alike on the surface.
Anyway thanks for the encouragement
PS..OMG. I just visited your blog. And what do I see????????????? Lord HELP me look at that caramel thing!

how about doing a water fast? that's starve those yeasties outta your body big time! cause if you want fast results... that's the way to do it IMO.
i won't bother giving you a cyber hug ... i'll just leave the room and take my huggin' self elsewhere.
a few links for you:
3-5 day water fast to kill off candida

Mycatislove, you can laugh at me any time. :)
Haha, I've only just started back on my blog, people love 'that' caramel thing' I need to get back into preparing foods, I'm so lazy and I eat quite simply (or not eat, today is the end of a gentle fast).
With the different diets, most say get rid of sweet fruits, but some say eat sweet fruits just cut back on the fats. I know several people who have used the fruits/no fat method over an extended period of time and gotten rid of their candida.
I don't think there's only one way to do it, and the best way, is the one that works for you.
Which ever way, hope the journey gets easier from now. :)
Hey there. I feel for you. I've had candida/parasite issues for a long time. I think they are mostly better now but it is always a work in progress. Some things that helped me:
The humaworm cleanse. Google humaworm and the website should pop up. It is a cleanse for all sorts of parasites and candida. It works, but be warned, the detox can be brutal and you have to be on a proper raw foods diet or (in my experience) it is sort of a waste of time and the candida or parasites will just come back. BUt you said you are eating right now so it may help you.
Iodine therapy with lugols iodine. This stuff anhiliated candida in my body for a time. BUt, as with the above cleanse, iodine therapy isn't something to jump into lightly. It can bring on a very brutal detox of heavy metals and halogens in the body. This is a good thing, but something you should be prepared for. Also there are specific ways to use the iodine and specific nutrients you must take with it such as selenium, vitamin c, and also salt water done in a certain way. But it works. It CURED my chronic yeast infections and even though I haven't taken iodine in awhile now, they remained gone.
For me I still eat fruit and all that. I just stay away from any refined sugars other than raw honey, and don't eat any grains whatsoever, even if they are raw/sprouted. Grains seemed to feed my candida and other issues more than anything else. I've never noticed any issues from fruit, but everyone is different.

I was researching virgin coconut oil fasting the other day. Or VCO detox, VCO fast. And I recall seeing people talking about doing that for like two to three days once a week for anywhere from one time to four times and they got rid of candida. Some people were also saying it was an intense cleanse and others thought it was so-so.
I think it works like Aleesha recommended with the water fasting, by starving em out. I also think that taking the VCO has a type of anti-bacterial, anti- parasite element to it. I think it may also kill the bacteria/yeast/parasites.? But I don't recall for sure. It was real late when I was reading that stuff a couple weeks ago.

Can you all imagine the abundant world we would live in if we all planted the seeds of every plant we ate. You wouldn't be able to throw a stone without hitting a fruit tree or berry bush or some fruit/vegetable bearing plant. Imagine the bees that would thrive in such an environment. I see a world.....................
Oh yes, great post! I can't believe I forgot about coconut oil! I take one large spoonful of coconut oil after both dinner and breakfast. It is great stuff and I believe it has helped me also.
Someone posted a good link info about oregano. I read that it will help candida. 50% rawcoconut oil with oil oregano.
Have you consider a colonic (gravity), it flushed your colon.
I think i had that, it went away with the raw diet.
Hope you feel well soon
Blessings and love

I want to do another colonic but I am having a...er problem right now due to candida. Let us not go there. lol

I believe 100% in water fasting. Good for every part of our lives. Plus it's free. VCO, I will be also checking that out and seeing about it. thanks!

What sort of anti yeast diet are you on? any type of restrictive diet if you have a chronic systemic issue, will only work as long as you are on the diet, most of which are just not realistic/sustainable for long periods of time. Like if you are eating low fruit, etc, and go back to that, the candida overgrowth will come back eventually, so you have to try to get to the root of what is causing it in the first place
