I have been seeing some good results from my diet lately, but after doing a bit of research thought that a product called Candex would somewhat speed up my recovery. You know what they say – kick them when they down.
Candex contains fibre digesting enzymes which are claimed to kill the Candida since their cell walls are mainly made of fibre. Candida cells can’t change their structure therefore it is thought that by the enzymatic approach resistance cannot be induced.
After receiving the product I thought I would take the upper limit dose as it states that Candex digests the Candida and that it should not produce any “die off”.
I took two tablets in the morning and two just before bed on an empty stomach as indicated. I continued Read more…
The severity and number of herximer or healing reactions you will experience in your lifetime depends on how often your body has been exposed to toxins.
To help you stay on your diet and supplement program, keep in mind that a reaction means you are succeeding and getting rid of all the toxins, chemicals, bacteria and parasites within the body. This also means that healing is taking place and you are getting better.
Every disease takes time to develop, but also takes time to heal.
Healing takes place in 3 stages:
1.The body begins to clean out the toxins and poisons within the body in preparation for better nutrients. (this is when you are most likely to experience a healing/herximer reaction).
2.Then the body begins to replace the eliminated toxins with essential nutrients.
3.The third stage is a build-up stage of lean muscle mass and internal organ regeneration.
After the 3rd stage has been complete the tissues that have been formed so far due to the diet/supplements are more durable and will not brake down that easily. The cycle then repeats itself and begins at stage 1 until the body has healed.
In the first stage people who Read more…
This may not be a biggie in everybody’s life, but on weekends we haven’t got a domestic worker so the tiding and cleaning of the house is up to my wife and I. This can be quite a challenge at times because of our young daughter.
Until recently the majority of the house hold chores fell on to my significant other. This is not because I didn’t want to help her, but
because of fear of dropping dishes when washing up or stacking and unpacking the dishwasher. I used to get dizzy when hanging up the washing(looking up into the sun even though not directly)
I used to hate making beds and cleaning the kitchen etc.for fear of falling or spilling things. Anyway I didn’t have the energy or willpower to do the chores.
Therefore I used to make every excuse under the sun in order to avoid doing them.
I have now recovered to an extend (thanks to the gluten and yeast free diet) that Read more…
I have now been grain free and higher fat for a week 10 days now and boy what a difference.
When I first began I had 2nd thoughts because of all the ill affects. My bones started to ache and I had a runny nose, my balance was shot and I had major “brain fog”. I knew that I had reintroduced almonds into my diet knowing that it affected me when I first went gluten/yeast free in 2010.
One thing that was a major concern to me was that I had loose pale coloured stools. I searched for answers on the internet and came up with 2 options, it could be either an allergy to the almonds or it could be a blockage in the bile ducts thus not producing bile which gives the stools their brown colour.
So I gave up the almonds for a couple of days as this was my first thought, but my “symptom” did not go away. At this stage I was thinking that I have damaged my body as I had intense tummy cramps and that I would have to go to my doctor.
That night I came across an Read more…
