Candida Yeast....what is going on?

Okay I haven't blogged several days about the Yeast situation. I am going to give a summary of where I am, and what I am still doing.

Hints:

Don't juice carrots or beets. In fact if you are going to juice, then you need green juices: celery, kale, greens ( turnip and collard), cucumbers, garlic, ginger, parsley....all really good choices.

Juicing is not for the faint of heart. I did it for 4 weeks and it was not fun, but it was healthy...so pick your poison.

Cut out as much sugar, bread, pasta, vinegar and aged foods as you can.

Eat Activia yogurt from the beginning

Take Pro-biotic supplements daily, do your research and invest in quality.

Don't give up, it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

Take soda water ( 1 tsp in a cup of warm water) once a day

If you can do coconut oil, or coconut oil capsules....do it and don't be afraid of the yucky feeling it is killing the Yeast.


My results have been amazing. My hands, face, head, etc are completely clear of rash. It will probably be months before the condition of my skin is back to normal, it still looks haggard but it is not cracked or open or even red. Daily application of a thick moisturizer will help that.

For the last 2 weeks I have eaten anything I wanted. Including bread, pasta, sugar,etc..... I am eating it in much more moderation than I was before, but still it is in my diet and not causing any issues! YAY!!!!!

From time to time I will post any changes or things that give me trouble, but for right now all is good.
