How long do we have to be dairy free?? ANyone know?
I'm not going by symptoms, cuz mine are too vague and overlap with some of my other heath issues.

What's a good time frame for being dairy-free?

Rottin, I use whole eggs... she doesn't like the idea of the egg whites so she only uses the yolk. It is the egg that makes the oil blend so nicely without floating on top of your coffee!
Oh my heavens. I just discovered another use for this. I was craving something sweet (Thanks TOM ) so, I scooped out a bit, added a touch of chai tea SF syrup and it was like pudding. Rich, creamy, completely satisfying. I can not thank you enough for this recipe!

If it means forever for me then so be it.

My plan is to finish the protocol (it could take months or years...) and then reevaluate. Dairy feeds the yeast, and the yeast is ruining my life.. so it has to go.

There was a time when I loved to eat sugar too, but I got over that.. so I think I can get over dairy as well.

I would be happy to get to a point where I did not have to be sure everything I consumed was 'dairy free' though. To be able to enjoy a little cream or cheese, but not to have it as a main part of my diet any longer.

Like my sister, she would just like to be able to avoid wheat, and not have to watch out for gluten for the rest of her life.

it is all up to you on how you want to handle it MG.. everyone is different and has a different degree of yeast and overgrowth.

I just want to add that today I feel like I did when I had a stent put in my ureter/bladder so I could pass a large kidney stone (6 years ago).

no pain in my kidneys, but my bladder feels full and very tender...

I did take an OoO capsule today.

Well, I'm officially grumpy!

I made a half dozen scotch eggs with chorizo this afternoon, and had one for a snack. About 30 minutes later, I wanted to eat everything in sight, and I was trying to talk myself into going to the store and buying ice cream or candy. I fished the label out of the trash and I discovered that the seasoning blend has sugar and wheat in it. GRRRRRRRRRRR!!! It was made fresh at the butcher's so I assumed it was okay - NOT!!!

The remaining 5 eggs went in the trash and I just made a chocolate mousse with whipped cream and cacao.

And went to the store and got more eggs and some coconut milk.

When the cream I have it gone, it's gone for the duration of this fight with candida.

I make my oopsies with mayo rather than cream cheese. I would guess that if I made my own mayo with ACV, I could keep making oopsies.

Hey Wen!

Would you lay out the recipe for me please?
I actually prefer Prozak's "Floopsies". but I wonder if I could use mayo instead of cream cheese?

Based on Cleo's Recipe

3 large eggs
1 pkg Splenda
dash of salt
pinch of cream of tartar
1/3-1/2 C mayo, depending on my eggs

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Separate the eggs and add Splenda, salt, and mayo to the yolks. Use a mixer to combine the ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff (if you're using the same mixer, mix the whites first and then the yolk mixture). Using a spatula, gradually fold the egg yolk mixture into the white mixture, being careful not to break down the whites. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and spoon the mixture onto the sheet, making 6 mounds. Flatten each mound slightly.

Bake about 30 minutes (You want them slightly softer, not crumbly). Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack and allow them to cool. Store them in a bread sack or a ziplock bag to keep them from drying out.

oooooooooh I might have to give that a try!

My very favorite dessert of all time is pumpkin pie

Wildflower.. I just whipped up a batch of 10 eggs, 1 can of coconut milk and 1.2 cup of EVCO and put it in the fridge.

Hubby is getting very fatigued (worked 28 days in a row, 14 hours each...) and he can no longer admit that coffee is cutting it for breakfast anymore. So I will be up at 5am to whip him up an egg cream, and this is a HUGE time saver for me.

How much ACV should be we consuming in a day? I think I need to dilute it MUCH more than I have been.

For some reason, the acidity seems to be irritating my pouch - aka, small part of my stomach that is above the lap band.

Okay, in my continual searching online about yeast and treatment and cures, one product is diatomaceous earth. Has to be food grade (also a chemical free pest control). According to the website of the product that uses it, if you add it to baked goods, the carbs attract the yeast (or whatever they have morphed into) and the DE kills them. Other places I went to for info did not specifically say yeast but mentioned parasites and fungus. Anyway, I'm thinking I will go ahead and order this as we do have a roach problem and the boric acid powder is not doing the job as well as I would like, neither is the sonic wave machine keeping them at bay. Anyway, for human consumption can be added to anything. There is a safety factor in not breathing in the dust so a mask must be worn when adding it to things.

Okay, off to take my three yeast cleanse pills, took 3 this morning. Sure hope I sleep more tonight. Actually woke up at 7:30 after being up until 4 AM. Glad it was Sunday and I could go back to bed and get some more rest before going to work at 4 pm.

Have a great night, everyone.

Sheryl (whose tummy is not very happy with her).

I managed to oil pull .5 T for 14 minutes last night. I can't tell a difference yet, but I'm not 100% up to speed. I did notice fresh blood when I brushed my teeth this morning - definately a new sign.

Also, how much CO does coconut milk have in it?

I've got some seriouly obnoxius symptoms today - cramping, bloating, gassy, and emotional.

Well,
I've been off virtually all dairy for two weeks.
Doing the 6TBS of CO for a week and a half and the ACV for at least one week of that.
Still haven't lost another pound.
*sigh*
I've had NO symptoms of die off and I scored like 8 points on that quiz. I'm starting to suspect this isn't the answer I hoped it would be. I'm going to give it another two weeks. If its NOT yeast and dairy causing my slow weight loss though I'm going to add cheese back in.

Oil Pulling removes toxins from your body.

Ideally you swish 1 T of CO (through your teeth (think sucking jello through them) for 20 minutes. The CO turns a nasty odd white shade. You trash the oil - do not swallow it.

You'll produce an incredible amount of spit at first, but according to Tooter it will go down.

And it's not nearly as nasty as I had expected - teeth are getting whiter.

Well, it seems to be working so far. I was down to 173.6 this morning. I had lost down to 170 and then gained back up to 177. I wasn't cheating but, I was eating lots of dairy and not eating clean. I've been eating clean for 4 days, no dairy or other yeast causing foods and I'm walking 3 miles a day. So, this combo seems to be working *fingers crossed*

Does anyone have the problem of their teeth becoming super sensitive and painful since they starter oil pulling? I think this is my fourth day doing it and my teeth have been aching non-stop since yesterday morning. They feel like they are all about to fall out...

I just tried the coconut milk and pumpkin egg cream. Not bad (I still added the coffee, I need my coffee!). I was surprised my organic coconut milk was so thick, turns out they use guar gum (sp) in it to thicken it. I was going to buy organic pumpkin too, but all they had was already sweetened pumpkin. I found 100% pumpkin in the baking section. I have to admit, I only ate pumpkin once before. Last time I did Atkins, I made a LC pumpkin roll for Christmas.
I am trying to cut back on dairy, although I still need my half and half and 1 t of co in my morning coffee. I am to scared to try the creamy egg and co milk you guys are trying. Just doesn't sound right. LOL!!! I just keep picturing cooked eggs (from the hot coffee) floating in there.
Maybe just some coconut milk will do the trick. Maybe I will try that tomorrow morning.

that happened to me at first as well. I believe to be the anti-microbial effect. Keep it up, it will adjust for you. It actually claims to tighten the root system.

Glad you're all enjoying the "fall egg creme" recipe! I burnt myself out on them this weekend. I added "pumpkin pie spice" with nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and it was so good.

Laz, I don't put mine in the fridge....I like them fresh. But I know others have stored theirs.

Kristin - RE: the coconut milk/egg/coconut oil mixture. Once it is all blended, it's almost the exact consistancy of heavy cream so when you add it to coffee, everything completely dissolves. No egg floaties at all. I'm with you - that would ick me out but this is very smooth and creamy - much the same consistency as heavy cream and it really melts into your coffee exactly the same. And, I am a huge cream in coffee fan. Huge. I adore cream in my coffee and can't handle coffee that isn't rich and creamy. This is a really good substitute. It's not exactly the same but, really it's fine. I'm finding I'm really enjoying it.

There are definitely differences among coconut milks. I bought two - one was just coconut milk and guar gum - the other was coconut milk, water and guar gum. The one with water seemed just as thick as the other but when I made the coconut cream recipe, it did not reach a pudding like consistency like the one with just coconut milk did. It's still pourable after refrigeration whereas the coconut milk only one needs to be scooped out.

I'm trying to locate a coconut milk with no guar gum......anyone have any luck with that?

MG: On your dairy question? Some folks may never be able to add it in. I am one who must go easy on dairy. I don't eat any extra cheeses unless I'm really craving them and then only organic dairy. If I could afford it right now, I'd only eat raw.

The one thing I've noticed though in my life recently, the more I eliminate from my life, the less I seem to tolerate if that makes sense. I guess what I'm trying to say is, my body tolerates less than I think or want to believe it does.

so I've been thinking..

how do we go about getting a forum or sub forum for candida/yeast issues?

These 2 threads are getting super confusing and people are going to miss out on a lot f stuff because their is SO MUCH to weed through. (not to mention in 2 separate forums).

I have seen 5 different brands and they ALL contain guar gum. There is only ONE brand that contains only guar gum and coconut milk (safeway O organic brand, it is the BEST tasting so far too), the others contain one or more of the following:

water
potassium meta bisulphate
polysorbate 60

there is a brand out there somewhere called 'coco gem' which is a tetra pack of 100% coconut milk. I see you can purchase it at a website called wildernessfamilynaturals dot com

(You guys know I am brain dead and will never find the new thread myself). I still haven't located the post that I posted somewhere. Maybe someone can send me a pm with the link for the new thread, ok?
I usually can find my way around a board. but lately I can't find my way out of the bathroom myself.

One quick question before you all run off and post somewhere else, can I freeze pumpkin? I am afraid it will spoil before I can use it all.

Thanks, Kristin
