I am still unraveling the mystery of how my sleep apnea was cured, because even with plenty of Vitamin C, occasionally I know I have suffered in my sleep because I wake up with a headache. I have more to add which seems to be a very important part of my protocol. Before my last sleep study which determined me to be "cured", I had begun drinking cream of tartar in water several times a day, because I had read that cream of tartar kills candida. And it DID trim down my bloated stomach. Cream of tartar is a by product of the grape/wine industry. It can be found in any grocery store in the spice section. You can also buy it in bulk at some bulk food stores.
I also practiced swishing grape juice in my mouth for about 3 minutes and then spitting it out. The second time will bring out more than the first, the third more than the second, etc. I generally do it about 10 times in one session and it takes me about 30 minutes. I just go about my business while I'm swishing. Spit it into a white sink or white bowl. Then look at your tongue and scrape them off your tongue. Yes, really! I bought a tongue scraper for this. One time the grape juice brought out a thread like fiber that was 2 inches long! You can read about the grape juice swish at Bariumblues.com. On this site they say if you have dentures it won't work, because they come out of the roots around your teeth, but I would think they would still come out of your tongue because apparently they come out of your blood stream. If you do this you will be startled by what comes out of your system (blood?). The first time I did this I spit out a lot of things that actually looked like tiny moths! I swear they had wings! I spit them into a white bowl and left it for the liquid to evaporate and after a few days, the "moths" actually crystallized. If you read the posts on this website about Morgellons, you will understand what I am getting at. I have been doing this from time to time for several years now. Whatever these things are they seem to reproduce rapidly, however, I have never again seen any as large as the very first time. Some were so big they actually got stuck between my teeth! The ones I get now are very small, but there are lots of them. I don't know if these things are from Morgellons or from Candida. I only know that it seems that about 2 or 3 weeks after doing this, I start to struggle again in my sleep and so then I do it again. It is as if these things have reproduced again to the point where they can congregate in my throat and nasal area at night, blocking my airways! On the section here about Morgellons, one of the treatments that is recommended is Vitamin C, but I believe that is only one part of it. I take about one half teaspoon cream of tartar in water 3 times a day. It is bitter, yes, but if you drink it in grape juice you don't taste it. For the grape juice swish, you may have to try several brands until you find one that works the best for you. I have been using Welch's concord grape juice. Even some red wines will work, especially if you add a tiny splash of hydrogen peroxide. However, you will be shocked by what you see and will want to do it again and again to get rid of all of them, and the peroxide seems to make the teeth very sensitive for several days, so DON'T overdo this if using peroxide! Also on the Morgellons section it was stated that these "fibers" hang out in the feet during the day. That would explain why my feet burn horribly if I drink grape juice in anything more than very small amounts! It must cause a very rapid die off and too much debris building up in my feet!
On the posts here about ACV for sleep apnea, my guess is that a lot of juices probably draw these things out, and maybe even alcohol, it is just that the grape juice dyes them so dark you can see them. I like to be able to see them! As far as weight gain and sleep apnea, when I was diagnosed I was the thinnest I'd been in over 20 years. I am 5 ft 6 in. And weighed about 142 lbs at that time. This is an ongoing search for me to solve this mystery to keep my cure and to help others and I will post more if I think of something else that I believe has contributed to my cure! Another thing that the cream of tartar does for me, I have had chronic weeping and tearing of the eyes for 10 years and it stops when I take the cream of tartar! It seems to me that I don't need to do both the cream of tartar and the grape juice swish, just one of them. Either the C. of T everyday, or the grape juice swish every 10 days or so. It may be different for you. You may want to do both until you get the population of these things under control! We all have to experiment and learn what works for us. Hope this helps someone!
