As you can see from earlier posts, I was quite confused as to the best way to cure a Candida overgrowth problem. As of this writing, it has been nearly two years of searching and trying different approaches to diet.
In the beginning I was very green about health and didn’t know where to turn. In a desperate search for help I turned to the web. Here I came across a wealth of information about Candida. Most of it was misleading…..but I wasn’t aware of that then. I began my treatment with the “Healing Naturally by Bee” program; which is a high fat, High protein, low carb, no sugars at all, diet. While I DID see a bit of improvement following this plan at first, it ended up making me very sick as I developed kidney stones (TWICE)! Probably the most painful thing I’ve experience thus far in my life. Similar to labor pain… but constant, with no relief! After my second round of stones, I realized that this approach was not right for me, and thus I moved on to search for more information. Now I know… HIGH FAT and HIGH PROTEIN is NOT the way to go… for ANYONE! A hard and painful lesson learned. I have come to the conclusion that the small amounts of healing that occurred at that time were a result of cutting out processed food, bread and white sugar from my diet. Plus, the replacement bad oils with healthy oils like olive oil and coconut oil.
At this time I began reading about all the healing benefits of raw food. So I purchased some books and began to follow a raw vegan diet. I was on the right track now, but still was not completly healing, only controlling the symptoms. My diet at this time included high fat vegan foods with no sugars or fruit. I was STILL held with the deception that fruits were bad for you and that the sugars in fruit would feed Candida. As long as I avoided fruits and sugars the symptoms were at bay. But, the moment did, things would flare up all over again and it felt miserable. Like a complete relapse. Now,I began to be more discouraged as it seemed a CURE was not to be found.
Well, I am happy to report that I have FINALLY figured it out. After speaking to a medical intuitive named Anthony William, I was directed to a diet that is high fruit, low fat vegan. The key being “low fat”. As a medical intuitive, Anthony was able to zone in to what my body needed to heal. He said that not only do I have some candida overgrowth, but that I also have a virus since childhood which has been wrecking havoc with my nervous system all these years. Ahhhhhh, more pieces to the puzzle are revealed!
My immune system was low and my body was deficient in minerals and protein. Thus he has put me on the low fat high fruit diet, to help replenish minerals and strengthen my body so that it can clear itself of both the candida and the virus. Finally…. a cause, answers and cure in sight!
So, for the past few months I have been eating lots and lots of fruit!!!! Wow! After all those months of none whatsoever….. it tasted wonderful. Like a kid in a candy store!! I’ll admit though, that in the beginning I was afriad. Worried that this would corrupt any progress that had already been accomplished. Healing that I’d worked so hard for these past years. In hesitance, I started slowly; following instructions to keep fat very low (90/5/5). To my surprise the fruit did not affect me! It was really amazing. So then little by little I added more and more.
At first there was quite a bit of detoxing going on, and it left me feeling tired and cranky. But that eventuall that passed and then the fog began to lift… energy started to return. But my progress is not diet alone. I also take a few supplements to boost healing in my body. I take minerals and do gentle exercise and yoga to further enhance my healing. (I’ll talk more about those things in another blog).
At this posting my body is said to be 20% healed! Praise God! If I keep progressing as planned, I expect a full recovery by the end of the summer. Even though I am not fully healed yet, I’ve never felt better. My mental clarity has improved, energy is returning, and most of the candida symptoms are gone.
I encourage anyone who is dealing with candida to look into this therapy! You really CAN eat fruit!!! And it is very healing. Please do write me if you have more questions etc.. I am very happy to share what I have learned and would love to help.
The cure is in sight, and I am grateful.
love and light,
