Hi, Melissa.

Recovery takes time and effort but it will happen. I was on so many antibiotics that the doctor told me my "next round" will be hospitalization. I always had acid reflux and thought it was normal. I had it since I was 6 or 7. I did not even know why food would come up like that and just swallow it (gross... as a kid, you do not question why stuff like that happens) so I did not get PPI until I was at the hospital for pneumonia.

My condition, it turns out was caused by the candida. Luckily, I did not have other conditions such a diabetes or anything else. My family medical history is quite good so I am lucky in that way. Everyone just assumed I was the family weakling.

I had athlete's foot along with fungal toenails. I took Sporanox and it cleared up but came back a little later (much milder, though). However, after the coconut cleanse, it all cleared up. Yet, when I had sugar and wheat, the "symptoms" came back, albeit mildly. I now know that I need to manage the candida.

By the way...been using the coconut oil all week. Today I did oil pulling. And I had a small dinner of plain yoghurt with a small amount of honey (and the ox bile- yum.) And the rest of the coconut oil. My system is doing something. I feel nauseous. I can feel my stomach and intestines churning away. This is a good thing.

It's painful to be beautiful sometimes.

If I were you, I would cut out the honey for the time being. I read on several candida sites that the sugar in honey can feed the candida.

If it is difficult for you, try cutting down the amount. I liked making my own milk kefir and drinking it plain. It is less "sour" than plain yogurt and has more probiotics than store bought yogurt.

I have tried making my own yoghurt! Even bought a machine. I wanted to make it with the Polyflora B. After three botched attempts and so many wasted capsules, I gave up. I need to start again.

I can stomach plan milk kefir. Plain yoghurt is sometimes hard, but it is my favorite and I only buy plain - I prefer the full fat kind and think my body assimilates it better (funny that I think that because my SWAMI lists full fat milk and yoghurt and super foods - honey is a diamond ;o).) I did only put a little bit of honey in it (I had one teaspoon all day, which is 1/8 my normal amount.) I am weaning myself off of it and once this container is gone - no more for a loooooong time.

All in all - I did not have wine today at all (I am keeping all corked bottles closed) and had a beer with lunch (usually have wine with lunch and with dinner and overdo it - sad, but true.) I drank ginger root "tea" (I boiled it and drank it twice today - very milky and very strong - in the morning.) This is diamond on my SWAMI and has antiviral and antifungal properties. I alternated that with parsley "tea" to use as an astringent. I just had a lot of parsley and thought, what the heck?

I am going to have to find a better green tea to drink without honey. I have been buying Ito-En Matcha from Costco, but I think I need something sweeter tasting. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

I am becoming obsessed...it appears...I guess it is easy to do on the path to wellness.

Wellness felt so elusive for so long - I thought all I had was my mental prowess to get me out of it. And look! No pharmaceuticals. Who'd a thunk? Not me, that's for sure.

I was just thinking about this earlier today.  Wellness felt elusive to me for most of my life.  I assumed it was a matter of luck - I never understood why I suffered so much of the time, while 'everybody else' seemed to feel fine.  I think I've always been on a quest for good health and once I found some things that are working, it's like I've stepped into the current of a fast-moving river.  
I don't have friends around here who have a clue why I live the way I do.  My friend last night told me that he chooses foods that he likes and tries to make them healthy, but I choose foods that are healthy and try to make them taste good. It's true - I'm completely absorbed in living my life for health, especially now that what I'm doing is actually transforming my body.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

If you are using coconut oil and it's not a compliant oil, why not just use intrinsia - which has caprylic acid in it?

"COCONUT: The medium-chain saturated fatty acids in coconut oil are potent antimicrobial agents, effective against fungi, viruses and many bacteria. The most effective fatty acids are caprylic acid (with 8 carbon atoms), capric acid (10 carbon atoms) and lauric acid (12 carbon). They appear to work by causing microbial cell walls to disintegrate.

PC,

It is actually listed as a diamond super food on my SWAMI. I am returning the parasite purge tomorrow (hopefully, the ND will reimburse me even though he poured the tinctures there - i.e., not a sealed container) along with the very non-compliant supplements to take with it.

I am going to go with the protocol listed on the Web site for yeast/fungi overgrowth and will probably buy the gastro kit.

The coconut oil is working - it must be. My sinuses are starting to drain, I have a "yeast rash" on my hand (I always seem to get cleansing rashes on my right hand - weird,) I feel things moving (if you know what I mean,) my skin is extra dry, and I am thirsty - which tells me my body is detoxing and cleansing. I could be wrong, but I don't think so. I also am getting a little "grossed out" to eat it in the morning, which is just the yeast/fungi wanting to stay...hehe.

I was actually excited to find my favorite coconut oil (Dr. Bronner's) at Whole Foods on sale for $7.99. So I bought another jar. I may buy a couple more for that price.

As I suggested a number of times, I do not recommend extreme purging with coconut oil. If I knew better, I would have taken a gentler approach.

On the other hand, after having much success with coconut oil, I am going to do the cleanse again in a few weeks when I am settled in after my move. I made the mistake of eating sugary foods and feeding the candida. It took a good 2-3 months to have overgrowth but no big deal. It means that my system has gotten much stronger than before and is not as vulnerable.

At any given point for many of us (especially in this toxic world and processed foods,) there is a yeast/fungi overgrowth.

I'm not saying it's healthy, nor that I embrace it. I am taking the slow approach (which is not my forte) to this and want to do something that will have long-lasting effects...and also something I can live with. I will not lie - to have just one tsp of honey a day (while diamond in SWAMI) will be a little sad (this will be for yoghurt or kefir,) but I will have to do it.

Right now, I am only taking 3 tbsp of coconut oil per day. At the end of the day, if so inclined, I take more. It's funny how I am repulsed by it in the morning now - this must be because some of the overgrowth is dying off. And I say, ta ta.

Thank God I don't really consume sugar or eat processed foods. After the "all beef" frank, I have learned my lesson and I will be bringing my food to parties/events if I know the menu is noncompliant (or not eat there.)

Funny...the main reason I began this journey was to lose weight...then to cure GERD...then allergies. Who would have thought this would be life altering? It is truly a calling and will become part of my life - not JUST a gimmick or a fad. I have witnessed the difference in how I feel when I eat according to SWAMI and not.

When I am alive and kicking, with less wrinkles and no ailments unlike my parents, maternal grandparents, my paternal family through his mother's side, I will be grateful. Interestingly enough - the generations before my grandparents (with the exception of my paternal grandfather who died at 98 - B/Nomad most likely,) lived into their 90's and 100's. I must come from a long line of folks who are heavily impacted by diet and environment. While we all are, some are more so.

Melissa

PS: I feel the yeast/fungi dying as I key. )
