Sorry, yes. I do have systemic candidia from my scalp to my toes, including oral and vaginal thrush. When my scalp gets red and itchy, I dab a little oregano oil or tea tree oil in the location. Same for my toes, but sometimes I just use a coconut oil concoction which is mixed with either lavender essential oil or tea tree oil. I alternate every week or every two weeks between the essential oils. it works fine for me.
The oral thrush seems to present itself in the mornings. It's not as bad as other photos I've seen on the internet since I can still brush away the coating, but there is a definite taste and it passes the 'candida spit test'. I imagine the thrush will go away with your protocol?
I wanted to tell you that I took your recommendation to try a little honey and turpentine once a week and continued the castor oil and turps twice a week. About two weeks after I began, I passed an 8" tapeworm! Wow! That surprised me, but it was also really cool! (Of course, it's hard to share such news with friends and family. Imagining the look on my mom's face just made me laugh. She's afraid of worms, lol.) I felt good after that, but uncertain if it was a real physical response or just the natural high of feeling a sense of progression on this journey. I felt like I hit a milestone in my healing process. I wish I could say I enjoyed the raw honey, but with the way it goes, the process is so quick, I don't get time to enjoy the sweetness, LOL! Most of the time I'm trying to keep the turpentine from dribbling onto my chin. Honey and turps day is always amusing for me. I am grateful no one is at home to witness my morning theatrics.
Moving onto your suggestion of how to deal with tiredness I get after eating. It happens less often now thanks to your baking soda suggestion. Now, I just move the baking soda protocol to after I eat instead of before. I hope that's okay. (I was just feeling overwhelmed with all the drinks, and still am, really.) Sometimes it doesn't work, and I kick it up to 1/2 tsp on the next meal when I'm fairly certain I'll get knocked out again.
I love Gymnea Sylvestre tea. I keep a really big tin of it now. When I have congestion from gas or have digestive issues, I add a few ginger slices to the steeping process, and it eases things. I add more ginger if I feel the gas or 'cold' enter the upper abdomen area. Sometimes I take extra baking soda/water. I also tend to add iodine in the tea so I can easily have it first thing in the morning, lunch and dinner. Can I mix the GS tea with chamomile tea or green tea? I could use some variety in my life, regardless how minute. I'm sure you know what that feels like.
Chlorella is fantastic! I take it even on the non-turpentine days when I start to experience die off symptoms and usually feel better afterward. Of course, it doesn't seem to work when I have flare ups, but it's actually a nice way to discern between the two. if I think its a flare up, I eat a lot of garlic and or ginger with my next meal. If I feel worse, I take chlorella and if it clears it up, great. If not .. well, I just lay down a bit before pressing onto the next part of the protocol. If it's bad, I pause the protocol and let my body rest for the remainder of that day. That's why I like your program, Bill. I am learning to listen to my body and go at its own pace.
Another plea for help is coming : Over the past few days I have had allergy problems. Before I continue, and in case it's relevant, I want to add that I've been getting a few mouth and tongue sores lately. The tongue sores I can easily treat with a dab of allum (let sit for 1-2 min, then rinse clean and don't eat or drink for at least 30m after), but the sore inside of my cheek doesn't respond to it, so I just gargle with Celtic salt and water before I got to bed and just ride it out.
The allergy is my main concern. I tend to get ear infections from them. I expected that I would get an allergic response when the weather warmed up here as I tend to get them during spring and fall, but this one arrived in the summer. I have a constant runny nose and post nasal drip, but now it's starting to approach my ears. I notice this whenever I swallow. I'd like to avoid a middle ear infection, which is what I usually get when this happens. In the past few years, I've used homeopathic pills such as Pulsatilla, to help prevent things getting worse, but I'm not sure if that will be okay to do given their sweet nature. Someone said the allergies could be candida related. Any thoughts on that and how to proceed?
PS: I finally bought the Carnivora. (Haven't taken it yet.)
