Day 6, and the yeast refused to die.
Of course, as it would take at least 2 weeks.
Do the test I mentioned in the last post, I bet many of you will find out you also have a yeast problem as well. It is worth the effort to eliminate this problem, as the benefits are many. You will live a much easier life without it.
I still have craving for sugar and diary, but I continue to consume almond milk, raw honey, green juice, and protein, instead of what the yeast wanted me to consume.
On day 4 I went to the health store and the staff (a homeopath) recommended me a candidas detox package. It claimed to kill candidas in half a month if you take it. It didn’t mention anything about dieting though. I figured it would do the work for me. It sounded good, but I didn’t buy it at the end, because I thought I should try the current plan first, so if it didn’t work I could tell you guys it doesn’t work.
Is it relevant to those of you who are “normal”? YES. As we grow older, more and more of us will develop what is similar to ADD anyway, due to the cumulating effect of many years of poor diets. If you want to grow old and wise, instead of becoming old and dependent, you too should consider to do what I do now.
I heard that colloidal silver can kill the candidas effectively for the first few days, but it also destroy the good bacteria in the digestive system, so I would have to re-plant them into my gut, by eating plain, organic yogurt! It’s delicious if you mix it with raw honey.
The first 2 benefits that I get from the dieting are better sleep, and better mood!
I heard that sugar is linked to depression. It certainly links to mood swing and fuels the candidas. Ultimately, it kills you, but it kills you slowly.
I stopped getting any sugar—tea, coffee, or soda.
My quality of sleep is much better. The bouts of depression comes much less frequent and even if it comes, it is like water off the duck back.
Before this diet/fast, I would often fall into temptation—”just one more soda”, “one more cup of milk tea”, and so on! Even if that means depression would come. I would try my luck. Each time I would get insomina and depression
Milk, which belongs to gluten food group, can trigger depression in people who are sensitive to it. Here is why. And if you get rid of candidas, you get rid of some allergies too. See Naturally and Holistically Curing Allergies by Eliminating Candidas.
I don’t know if I am allergic to gluten, but I am avoiding this entire food group to see if my health will get any better. It is the only way to test if you have it.
Now that I am off sugars and milk, my moods are much more stable. Nevertheless, some stubborn symptoms remained.
For example, I still very much “crave emotional and intellectual stimulation”, which is one of the symptoms for my sluggish cognitive tempo. The problem with that is, I would have the strong tendency to seek activities that are fun (stimulating), instead of working on what is mentally demanding, such as typing a blog entry like this one.
Basically, anything that doesn’t provide instant gratification, but requires some amount of thought and focus, would often be challenging for me—I would not be able to do it as much as I want to, when the mental energy is just not there. The level of energy is sporadic. It is hard for me to control it.
This is how it’s like if you have sluggish cognitive tempo.
It really messes up your mind if you have it—”Am I lazy?”
Even though I know that what I am dealing with are symptoms, but I often still feel that it is me. I already am taking the actions I need to take to cure it, but the guilt is still the first response when I don’t feel like I have done enough. Somehow I still feel like the symptoms shouldn’t be there, or I could somehow overcome them with my willpower, such as getting the task done despite the strong pull from distractions, and the lack of mental energy (low motivation).
I have lived long enough to know that everytime I tried to beat it I would end up losing. When I don’t have the motivation to do something, no matter how hard I punish myself afterward, or to scare myself into doing it beforehand, I just couldn’t do it. Even if I managed to start it, I would still get distracted shortly after. I would try to get back to it again, and only to find myself distracted again. Hours later, I would wonder how I became lost, and forgot what I originally wanted to do.
I have hopes. If the candidas is gone, along with the sluggish cognitive tempo, life would be so good. I would finally be able to become what I long wanted to become.
I still consume meat though, such as sardines and salmons. I also eat chicken and beef. This fast is still good spiritually even though I have these delicious foods. It is my preliminary round of attack against my spiritual enemies. It will make my subsequence fast much easier. The detox symptoms will be less severve when you eliminate candidas and some toxins. It’s better than doing it cold turkey from day 1.
