do not use the apple juice if you have candida. I did (mistake!)
Apple juice is used to help the bile move. It was very good at that. I moved
a lot of liquid yellow stuff. But my candida went way out of control. (I got
dizzy and extremely confused among other things) I really did not still think
I had a problem with it.
I did my first flush in October and I am still fighting with candida.
I am now using a herb (a bard of a tree actually) called Taheebo (or pau 'd arco)
to control my candida. I am thinking much more clearly now. It has many uses.
I will list a few of them: kills fungus and many other pathogens including parasites,
relieves pain, detoxes liver and blood, helps bile to move, strengthens the liver and
all other organs. I think it works for lots of things because it imparts oxygen into
the water. It is hard to find a good source of the bark. I purchase mine at http://pau-d-arco.com/ It can also be purchased at http://sensiblehealth.com/ The
first site is a wealth of information about taheebo and includes specific instructions
for making the tea. It is very important that the tea is made properly and
purchased from a reputable source. I made my tea incorrectly for a while and it
was not as effective. I am good at making mistakes.
I have many, many food allergies . I only can eat beef, lamb, buffalo, green beans
broccoli,and unrefined Sea Salt , but am able to tolerate the tea, but at a reduced
strength. At full strength, I was so very tired. (this is a detox symptom) The
site also says it is ok to sweeten the tea tea. I did this as well - anther big mistake.
I did beat myself up about all the mistakes I made with my health, but I'm
learning along the way. I don't used any sweetener now. I think it tastes fine
without it. It is great with maple syrup for those of you without candida,
hypoglycemia or diabetes. I have been incresing the strength of the tea every
week or two since november 2001 and plan to try another flush after I get up to
the recomended dose. This should be in about 2 months. I was hoping be at this
dose by this spring since the gallbladder flushes are supposed to be more effective
in the spring, but oh well!
If anyone is interested in more details about the taheebo tea or my experiences with it
