    Good luck with all the dietary changes!

    We are almost to 1,000 posts!

    Today Daniel took a sick day for a head cold. While I hate that he is not feeling well, I am loving having him home today. He also spent some time with Alyssa on her math, and that is always nice. We are almost done for the school year. Just 7 more lessons. Getting ready to dive into planning for next year. I like to do my lesson plans for the whole year at a time. That way during the year it is much easier.

    Lisa with candida is it a treatment sort of situation, or do the dietary changes have to be permanent?

    I'm so confused, I just don't know yet. I'm supposed to keep on with no grains, but then in a few days try some rice for a day or two, then stop for a few days, then move on to corn. Try that the same way, then move on to the next. Wheat should be the last thing I try to add back. This is all because I'm not gluten intolerant, BUT I'm not supposed to eat carbs and high sugar stuff because of the candida, so what's the point in adding back the grains???? I'm confused. I think I should stick with a candida diet that I found for now, see how I feel in a few months, and then go from there. I don't know if I'll ever be able to go back to a 'normal' diet! Will the candida just overgrow again? IDK. It's for sure what's responsible for my elevated liver enzymes and fatty liver disease. Candida apparently loves to hide in the liver. And maye this horrible rash on my feet isn't psoriasis; maybe it's a fungal infection?? Oh boy. I'm feeling some despair, quite honestly.

    Lisa, I had a neighbor who was dealing with Candida a couple years ago. She was absolutely miserable until she cut out gluten and then she felt better but not great. When she developed a yeast infection in her armpit, her doctor suggested a no-carb, no-sugar "Candida diet" for two weeks and gave her some probiotics, but they didn't seem to help. Then she saw a naturopath who recommended some plant-based antifungal herbs (eyebright, yellow dock, goldenseal, milk thistle and others that I can't recall) and a 5-strain non-dairy probiotic; the one her doctor gave her contained dairy which actually feeds Candida! He also recommended that she *not* cut out *all* carbs, she was able to eat nuts, beans, rice, potatoes, and to stay on that diet for eight weeks. She felt great and she was able to back a lot of foods when she continued the probiotics. She had a few things that were still off-limits (beer & bread) but she could eat outside her home again without feeling like a PITA.

    That sounds frustrating, Lisa. I would bet that if you treat the immediate overgrowth, you could then go back to a limited version of your normal diet?

    I had my interview at NBC today. I think it went okay, it's always so hard to tell. I got drenched walking over there, it started pouring when I was halfway there and it was too late to get a cab or do anything about it. Fortunately they didn't judge me for it and in fact gave me a free The Office umbrella when I left. If nothing else, at least I have the umbrella.

    Still waiting to hear about the other gig that I really REALLY want...they are trying to set up my next interview there.

    It's been a crazy busy week, I feel like I'm constantly juggling about 7 different things. Hoping next week will be calmer. Plus, I'm going to see the Star Trek movie on Wednesday, I've been waiting MONTHS for that.

    The capsules that I take for the candida have garlic, oregano oil, clove oil, evening primrose and several other herbs. I'm supposed to eat plain probiotic yogurt too. The capsules smell like a health food store. I wonder if they'll make my skin smell like garlic and cloves the way fenugreek made me smell like maple syrup.

    And Melis, I'm hoping you're right! Candidiasis can be caused by antibiotic use and/or oral steroids. I've definitely had my share of antibiotics in my lifetime and steroids too. I'm from the generation of throwing antibiotics at every.single.thing. Our moms didn't know any better back then. They trusted the doctors.

    I had lots of problems with yeast products last year. I followed the super strict diet for a few weeks. Now as long as I take a probiotic, I can handle one meal [per day with yeast (bread) in it. I still have huge problems though with fresh baked bread with yeast in it. I make my own buns for home use but now at a restaurant or a someone's house, I just eat what they serve with no issue.

    I'm just going to praise sitter city one more time. I know have three good looking applicants for summer care! I hope one of them works out. I'm just very impressed that twice i have gotten great response for posting a job. Especially up here where i am, its not like a bustling metropolis or anything!

    In other news I'm fending off a cold. I feel really crappy but getting a little better.
