Time to get serious again

After an attempt to get back on an anti-Candida diet a couple months ago, my motivation kind of fizzled out pretty quickly. Well, that and a new passion for pizza took me over. So for the last couple months, I've kind of hovered on the fine line between misery and contentedness (if that's a word).

I believe I mentioned in the previous post that I've had a lot of numbness in my hands and feet ever since I finished the coast-to-coast walk in September 2010. With this numbness getting worse lately, and with people telling me my feet look unhealthy, I became a little worried that it might become a very serious issue if I don't start trying to take care of the problem, which I suspect is Candida-related. So I decided Monday that it was crucial for me to get serious about eating better and taking the right supplements (raw garlic, ACV, coconut oil) a couple times a day. In conjunction with these standard components of Candida warfare, I've also begun a new kind of therapy, which I'm not going to discuss until I feel pretty confident that it's helping.

Anyway, I read a post on less than an hour ago, in which someone said she successfully ridded herself of warts with this type of therapy. As her post reminded me of a couple wartlike blemishes I've had on my arm for years, I quickly looked at my arm to see if they've changed or disappeared. And yes, they are pretty much gone. I have no idea if they were there a week ago, but they're mostly gone right now. I was surprised because, as I said, these blemishes have been on my arm for many years.

I think this new therapy is probably helping a lot, but I want to give it some time before I say anything more about it. My numbness seems to have decreased quite a bit in the last five days, and my mom says my feet look a lot better already. This leads me to hope I'll be able to come back here in another week and tell you I feel really good.

If you're interested, here's a couple pics of pizzas I've made recently. Oh how I love pizza.

  1. I haven't tried pizza... I am having such a time trying to figure out what is making my tongue burn that I am not experimenting with any foods.

    Hope your therapy is working. Terry

  2. I didn't mean to sound like I've been eating pizza to aid in my recovery. If I was unclear, I meant I need to stop eating pizza because it's been keeping me from getting better.

    A couple days ago I added cayenne pepper to my arsenal of supplements. I can't say for sure if it has helped yet, but it probably has (or will). Also, when I add it to my ACV & baking soda solution, the solution tastes a million times better.

  3. My friend, I can really understand your situation and can feel your pain with me. I have suffered from the same problem and what I have tolerated is just in-explainable.
    One thing I would like to suggest you, is to continue with the basic treatment methods. These disease take some time in getting cured, so you have to be patient and follow the basic rules, live a happy and healthful life and you will surely be able to get rid of it.
    Best wishes for your health.
