    So, here's an interesting thing: I don't mind the taste of coconut anymore. I used to really dislike it. I really disliked coconut oil too. Just the smell would make me feel nauseated. But when I started oil pulling last week, I got Trader Joe's coconut oil b/c it's cheap & organic. I found the taste pleasant. I cooked my eggs in it this morning & didn't mind the extra flavor. I still prefer them in bacon grease, but I am all out. I have coconut date rolls for a snack and am wishing I had some unsweetened coconut shavings to nibble on. Weird! I can't remember my taste preferences changing like this before.

    I like Dr. Mercola.

    Thanks, I couldn't find anything when I searched earlier. It's pretty much all the same though, eat right (paleo style, low sugar etc.) and take probiotics. The immediate relief stuff doesn't really apply to me because I'm treating from the gut -> out. It's just a matter of staying on track.

    That said, I had a low blood sugar episode this afternoon and was really anxious & then depressed. I'm eating chicken soup right now but I really want Burger King.

    My sister did the Mercola protocol and it helped her a LOT with anxiety and depression as well as physical symptoms. BUT - you have to follow it to the letter and for the duration. Its a tough protocol, but it does work.

    Personally, I like Dr. Mercola too.

    For the yeast overgrowth? It doesn't look like it has anything really new. Haha, the comments are full of people saying that this article is pretty bare-bones, which I agree. I think it's a good basic starting point, but it's not sufficient for me. I need detailed supplement usage and suggestions. I'm finding plenty, it's just going to take a while to heal. I'm sure my leaky gut or whatever is not helping.

    Supplements I've read to be helpful or experienced myself:
    caprylic acid, pau D'Arco, oregano oil, olive leaf extract, black walnut, grapefruit seed extract, garlic, beta carotene, biotin (last two are new to me, never read those as recommended before)

    [Edit] anyway, I apologize. I know you are just trying to help. I'm just massively frustrated. This is something I have struggled with unknowningly for many years, and knowingly for a couple of years. I just have to find the right combination, rotate the anti-fungals, and stick with a good diet so my gut can heal & this can go away.

    That said, I really do need to make saurkraut.

    Have you seen this? Treat the fungus among us with nontoxic medicinal compound

    I don't know where you'd find the stuff, but it might be worth looking for.

    I have not. Interesting. You can get gymnema extract on supplement sites, and even Amazon. Looks like it's commonly used to control blood sugar levels. People have success in using it to kill sugar cravings. I only found a few testimonials on its use for candida overgrowth. Definitely something to bookmark in the old noggin though. Thanks.

    Danger, danger: sinkhole ahead

    Mood - There are warning signs all over the place lately. Anxiety was high yesterday, but today depression is settling in. I need to let Hulky know.

    My downward spiral with diet & mood is very gradual right now, but it's still there. I've turned at least one rotation so far. Is it the weak will causing the bad diet causing the bad mood or is it the mood causing all the rest? It would be helpful to know in order to figure out the best treatment. Do I need to borrow Tomi's big girl panties or break out the 5-HTP?

    I took L-tyrosine and Vitex this morning. I don't know, there's just that thought that it could be hormonal. Maybe it is the start of the week long PMS again. If it is, I feel really sad that my body is so borked that I can't produce progesterone properly on my own. I don't know what to do about that. I don't know if the L-Tyrosine is helping. I have some here at work, I realized, so I might take another shortly. I felt depressed enough that it diminished my appetite this morning. I could tell I would be hungry if not for the mood.

    And maybe if I just demolish this yeast thing, it will all be okay. I honestly think that's very likely, but I'm still left with the question of where to start. My order of caprylic acid will arrive tomorrow and the Puritan's Pride order of oil of oregano is still pending. After taking the caprylic acid for a few weeks, I will need to switch to something else. Maybe liquid Pau D'arco, as I don't think the tea is strong enough this time (maybe I just picked a bad brand, I know one was stronger than the other last time). Or maybe I'll try that gymnema Goldie referenced. I need to do more research on how to use it. I'm exploring the CureZone Candida subforum today.

    I had kettlecorn last night. It was great. I got the Stop & Shop brand which has palm oil, not soybean oil. I'm sure corn is bad, bad, bad for my poor gut, but I was tired of fighting.

    Candida Treatment Protocol - General Discussion - The Candida Forum - Utilizes molybdenum & nettle leaf; would try the SCD as the "cleanse" diet, going back to mainly chicken soup blend; have not heard of using red thyme oil before
    Constipation Remedies - General Discussion - The Candida Forum - Don't like most of those recommendations, but definitely agree that promoting motility is really important while dealing with candida. It always feels worse when I'm simultaneously constipated.

    Gut - I "gave it a break" yesterday after the morning's clear-out. But today I need to make sure there's movement.
