Candida under control

Friday, February 10, 2012

So far, I’ve been coiling for Candida only to the point that it doesn’t get worse and most of my related symptoms are under control. Unlike the tick borne illnesses, this one come from all the antibiotics. What reduced my Lyme load  increased my Candida load.

Thus far, I’ve been using 5LAC and coiling. I’ve got in mind to increase the coiling significantly sometime in the near future. Around that time or shortly after, I’m going to try a two-week course of a megadose probiotic that is used for ulcerative colitis patients to rebuild their gut flora. I’m hoping that this plan will mean I can end my coiling for Candida. I’ve heard that one might have to coil for Candida head to toe daily for a full year to get rid of the infection. I’m slightly more hopeful.

Last year when I got the coil machine, I started coiling for Candida right away, 5 minutes over my abdomen. At some point, I doubled it because I was still having problems with gas. That actually helped a lot. After an initial bout of acne and a few weeks of really bad gas and bloating, things cleared up. It seemed like I had the candida in my digestive tract under control. I knew it wasn’t gone because if I skipped more than one day, I had bad gas until I had coiled for a few days.

Towards the summer, I had some sinus congestion and I wondered if it was from Candida causing an imbalance of flora in my mucosal lining. I added 2 minutes to my chest and, shortly thereafter, 2 minutes to my head. It cleared things up. But I didn’t like coiling my face, so I dropped the head coiling.

Since mid-July, I’ve been coiling daily (as best as I can) on my chest and abdomen. This routine works insofar as I have fewer digestive problems when I do it than when I don’t. But it hasn’t gotten me over the hump.

In these next few months, my goal is to eradicate the infections that cause my food sensitivities, namely Candida and Bartonella. I’ll be doing it during Lyme season, but I think the time is ripe!

Coiling

  • Candida, chest, 2 minutes; abdomen, 10 minutes
  • Bartonella, chest, 2 minutes; abdomen, 5 minutes
  • Lyme, sacrum, 2 minutes

Detox

  • skin brushing
  • biomat (level 4 1 hour)
  • nap (1 hour)
  • kombucha
  • juiced greens
  • diatomaceous earth

Body

Is it the herx or is it the snow…or is it kidney stones again? I’ve got intense pain in my lower and central back. The muscles seem okay, in other words, they don’t hurt when I touch them. To me it seems like my kidneys are unhappy. Then again, I’m having pain in my heels and lower legs when I walk, so it could be the newest version of a Lyme herx. Then again, it’s going to snow tonight or tomorrow, and I always have back pain preceding snow.

The other big piece of the herx this time is overly sensitive skin. Skin brushing, even lightly, is fairly painful. And other things, like clothes, keep bringing my attention to my skin. It’s an odd experience.

Not enough sleep last night, I just didn’t stay asleep. Some floaters in my vision. Mild headache. Mild light sensitivity. Not too bad.
