I think we also have to do more enzymes, but zyme prime plus no phenol didn't seem to work but the Kirkman version of Peptizyde is too strong for us.
Jane, the link in the sticky about candida said it would take the same number of months to heal as years of symptoms -- for me that would be like 40, since I think it's been lifelong for me!
I futzed around with coconut milk in the very beginning when we were sorta on again off again with it, but he's been 100% fanatical since Sept. (although when did DH give him that pretzel too.. ? )
And he can't even tolerate raw fruit very much nevermind dried! Believe me when I get to the bottom of *his* issues, you will be the first to know.
It took me a while to be able to digest whole nuts. Also I totally notice a difference with unsoaked whole nuts... the enzyme inhibitors still get to me.
40 months, ugh! I had tummy issues when I was a kid...not very bad but bouts of constipation. I also used to complain of a "hot tummy" and constantly pulled my shirt up to cool it off. :
It took me a while to get used to Peptizyde too. Maybe 3 weeks. Started with sprinkles. Now I pop them no problem, even before bedtime.
