I started with some CO and probiotics on Sunday evening.

I made the coconut chocolate bark - so I am estimating that I had about 2 tbs of co each day.

I dont notice anything really yet except a little extra energy. When should I try the ACV?

Thanks!

Thanks for your help! I leave it out for a little while and see if I can go back to it. If I could somehow convince myself I loved the taste it would help Maybe I'll use reverse psychology telling myself I can't have it for a while and then I'll in the end be craving it hehe

Is the ACV the one with the Mother in it? Does it come in pill form?

NO, You must use the actual vinegar. I like it a lot myself.

OMG!! I just tried the ACV - It was pretty strong, but I think I can get used to taking it. At least I hope so. I also have periodontal problems, so hopefully it will help with that too.

I mix my ACV with SF fruit drinks or unsweetened kool-aide. I Also sweeten to taste. Usually mix up a gallon and consume over a couple of days. I've actually grown to really enjoy this drink and am not drinking as many diet sodas.

I just mix it with a little Stevia (you could also use splenda) and it ends up being like an "Apple Cider Vinegar Ade...Like a Lemonade. Same principle...Something Sour that you add water and sweetness too.

I have also added it to Ice tea with some sweetener and it gives it an apple cider "like" taste.

When my [almost] 4 year old had an ear ache a while back, I put ACV in his ear. I made him lay with that ear up for 10-15 minutes and then with that ear down to drain for a while. I did this several times during the day. The next morning he felt fine and there was some brown gunk around the outside of his ear canal. Fluke? But, I know I'll try it again the next time, should there be one.

Here are some ideas...bre*st milk in the eye, although unorthodox, is very effective:
Conjunctivitis/Pink Eye & Eye Infections: Causes & Cures
(garlic water, chamomile tea bags, colloidal silver, watery raw honey, etc.)
HTH!

excellent advice yooper! I used the BM in Cave Baby's eye whenever she got a little goopey. I also would put in on every time she scratched her face and they would heal up SO FAST!!

So in 14 weeks Nik... unless you can express some colostrum right now? It really doesn't take much, just don't tell DD9 what it is LOL

Wow, this is a really good thread indeed!!

I'm going to start doing the CO and ACV, but I'll have to buy the Probiotics.

I was also wondering if the yeast could also cause pain and burning during intercourse and even dryness?

I think I've shared with you all my DD's struggle with weight. While she has transitioned to all organic, her sugar addiction was always a huge road block for her. A big rash in her under arm and finally her irritation at the fogginess she's felt for several months (went to the Dr. for it and when I mentioned candida to the doc, she said she didn't test for it....DD is 26 so she's in charge of herself) She made the decision to start her candida cleanse last monday and is starting to feel fantastic. She's finally feeling some weight loss relief as well....more so than ever when she attempted low carb.

I'm pleased that she is finally addressing this (I've known for about a year that it is her problem) She has been studying Bee Wilder's site.

New to Candida

I just came across this forum tonight after being 'diagnosed' by a naturopath as having candida. My main symptoms are dizziness, fatigue, muscle pain, sinus issues....among many others.
The really bad symptoms all started for me about 2 months ago, although most of the symptoms have been present for me as long as I can remember, just at a much more tolerable level. I was experiencing allergy issues with dizziness so I went to see my primary care Doctor, who put me on antibiotics for what she thought was a sinus infection. I now believe that that round of antiobiotics (on top of many rounds in my life), caused this to kick into overdrive.
When my sinus infection didn't go away, I went to an ENT, and was diagnosed as having vestibular neuritis, due to my dizziness and balance problems....although they couldn't see that I had an infection. I think they didn't know how to diagnose me, so they had to say something.
So, after the VN diagnosis, I was given a shot of steroids, and then put on 2 rounds of oral steroids, when the dizziness didn't let up....as they contributed the dizziness to inflammation in my ears/sinuses. I did feel better for a few days after each steroid round.....but it's all back, and brings me to where I am today. Still stick, dizzy, and trying to get answers!
Anyway, back to the Naturopath. She got me started today on a strict regimen of supplements - - - and suggested that I stop eating dairy and wheat. I have a couple of questions....does anyone know how long it takes to start seeing a relief of symptoms? I just started the regimen today, but I swear I'm feeling worse. Is it possible that die-off could start on day 1?
Any info is appreciated! Thanks!

Yep, if you have a lot of yeasties, then you could start to feel die-off within a few hours of starting suppliments. I felt it at about 4 hours and spent the next 8 within 5 feet of the bathroom.

Hey Andi,

A lot of people with Candida also have stressful lives and suffer from some level of hypoadrenalism (under active adrenal gland) Supporting the adrenals will help support the digestion. It's like a two way street of course. Probiotics are good too, but a complete treatment may be required. I'm using a natural and transdermal patch to heal my adrenals which in turn is helping my rid myself of most food allergies and healing my gut too.

Thanks! The naturopath did say that what seems to be my worst problem is the function of my adrenals....interesting! So, the majority of what I'm taking is for that. Good call! I'll post again when I have updates as to how this supplement regiment/diet is going....

andi I felt symptoms the first night.... and like wen it was at least a week full of aches and pains and itchies and rashies... it was always a crap shoot when I woke up as too what part of my body would be affected that day.

The cravings were the worst for the first 2-3 days... bread, wine and juice were the worst. And considering I don't drink wine and had been low carb for 6 months already it was really apparent.

I'm on steroids for my back and I can tell that the yeast like it.

I think I have some epsom salts. Sounds like a good hot bath is in order when I get home.

I'm just trying to hang on and not eat the sugar and dairy that's craving my name. I'm throwing everything I've learned at it - lots of L-glutamine and even more CLO to keep my EFAs balanced, but I want a full sugar chocolate bar And I want to start throwing a temper tantrum - I know what's going on, but I still don't like it.

I feel ya-I have been on several courses of prednisone. I didn't get the moon face but boy did I gain weight. You are doing everything right and good for yourself-keep that in the back of your mind at all times. Take some Almond Breeze and add dark cocoa powder and sweeten to your liking to make some cocoa. Maybe the combo of chocolate and warmth will help.

AWwww! I hope you feel better soon.


I am doing fine. Some of my rashes are clearing up, and I am not as achy this week. I have started the digestive enzymes and I am much more regular now! I also have less gastric distress since starting the enzymes. Those enzymes are a Keeper! Thanks Lisabanil for suggesting them!

I have recently added them back to my vit/sup regimen and am noticing good things too.
