I posted a biggy last night and then mdc wouldnt put it through - ARGH.
I read the cheat sheet yesterday and now would like to find people to talk to who have actually done some of the things. MY problem is candida. 2.5 wks ago I miscarried and had a d&c
: which I now horribly regret b/c I apper to have a yeast overgrowth problem now. Never have hadone before. I certainly ate and craved a lot more carbs during those 2 wks, but I figured it was depression begging for sugar. Then I started noticing last week my abdomen pooching out quite a lot, sometimes with cramps sometimes not. I looked on the web and diagnosed myself with yeast (antibiotics for a week following the d&c, and high levels of estrogen/progesterone which apparently yeast like, and all those carbs). I did take some acidopholus last week, but not until I realized what this could mean did I crank that up several notches, and cut the carbs wayyy back. yesterday was my first day of no carbs at all and it was hell. I was (AM) hungry, cranky, and SAD about all this. I saw my accupuncturist friday and she prescribed an herb combination anti-fungal after seeing the yeast on my tongue. I have definitely had headaches and felt not myself, but then again, I have been seriously grieving so its just too hard to tell what is coming from what.
My questions are about the specifics of the anti-yeast regimine. What has your experience been with specific probiotics (Ive read that lactobacillus S.... [cant remember the wor except its the only one starting with S] is the best for taking the place of the yeast). Ive *just* been taking acidophillus which seems to be not nearly enough - is this true? My candida diet does not allow yogurt.... And haev any of you ised enzymes that you've noticed a difference with. I have never had food allergies (knock wood) or digestion problems or immunity problems, so otherwise ont think I need them, but I read that a certain kind help break the shell of the yeasts in the gut to then make the AF's work better. How do these enzymes even make it to the gut? How do they make it through the stomach and pancreatic acid? Do I believe this b/c I want to or has anyone had experience? That FAQ sheet also mentions that it takes about a month for every year you've had it to get rid of. Is this one of the things JaneS
you dont believe? How long should I expect to do this so hard core if ive been infected for 2 weeks? I wish there were an answer like the diet, af's, probiotics, enzymes and diet hard core for 2 wks
Its really not funny. If we do want to ttc again, I dont want to with this. Your thoughts? And the last thing is the diet, I guess. I can suffer through this, but for how long? The Yeast connection (which Ive only read blurbs of on the web) says you can introduce fruit again in 2 weeks.
Anyway, I just really want personal help. How do I wade through all the *theories* and choose a protocal that I can have faith in? Why dont I just take lamisil with all the other stuff and knock this sh** out? Ugh. Im about ready to go to pennsylvania with you!
