Am I On The Right Track

Recommended Posts

After years of Depression, Anxiety, lethagy and Sinus problems (started when I got Glandular fever about 15 years ago) with the doctors offering nothing but Anti-depressants and steroid spray to relieve the symptoms I finally went to see a Nutritionist who did Kenieseoloy (sp?) on me and found intolerances to Wheat, Rye, Barley, Eggs, Rice, Cows Milk and Dust Mites, they also suggested a Stool Parasitology to test for Candida and other parasites (now I am pretty sure I have Candidasis as I got much worse after a bout of tonsilitis when I had to take some heavy antibiotics). I am waiting for the results still and they should come through any day.

Since the intolerances were highlighted I have cut out all foods containing these things and taken Acidophilus plus a supplement called Sucroguard she suggested, but I feel dreadful, more tired, mood swings, depression, nausea, terrible hunger pains, getting very hungry about an hour after I eat and I was even sick last night. The one thing that has improved is the brain fog (things seem somewhat clearer).

I am wondering if I am on the right track and should I be feeling like this? I have heard of the Herx reaction and if I was taking a med or supplement to counteract the Candida I could understand it and could ease off on it for a bit until I felt better, but all I have done is cut out the foods I can't tolerate and taken some probiotics.

I am still at work but everyday is a real struggle and I come home in a daze totally exhuasted.

Help please, I just need some answers.

Carl.

I love kinesiologists! It's so nice to have the brain fog leave! When you find a good K, they are great! I felt sooo much better after going to one who put me on the right mix of herbals and supplements. Sometimes you do need an adjustment on the supllements. Some brands are gluten-free, but they really just bothered me. No idea why.

If possible, call the manufacturers of the supplements you are taking to see if any contain a hidden gluten or have cross contamination issues. Inert ingredients are things to look out for. If all of them are fine try taking only one med for a day or two to see if it causes any problems. You might be able to find the problem item that way. Then replace it with a different brand.

Look up the FAAN (Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network). They have a lot of info about food allergies and what to avoid. They have shopping cards to purchase that detail all of the other names used for Eggs, and Wheat. gluten-free Shopping cards are available on other sites.

Then call the kinesiologist back and explain your sysptoms. Something is just not working right on you. They may be able to give you something else, or recheck you.

Hope you start feeling better soon.

Need to and she only used kinesiology on me to determine what foods I was sensitive to. I think I experiencing a big Candida die back (Herx effect) as I am starving it of wheat and other stuff it likes. I have to admit I wasn't expecting to get a Herx reaction by just changing my diet and taking Acidophilus and am surprised at the severity of it.

We'll see how I get on over the weekend and I have a few days off work coming so I will try and take it easy during those.

Carl.
