Every morning when i wake up I feel hungover, but i dont drink...........i have cut out all sugar and i am on a gluten free, dairy free,soy free diet...........is this a typical die off symptom. I also have more bloating lately and burning eyes off and on. If i drink a lot of water the hangover feeling subsides in a couple of hours. Your thoughts Please!

It's great that you have cut out sugar, along with gluten, dairy and soy. But cutting out sugar is only the first step. By cutting out sugar, you are keeping more candida from growing, but you are not killing what's already there. Now you need to use something to kill the candida. Some people use probiotics, others use prescription antifungal drugs, and others use natural supplements like caprylic acid. Find what works best for you, and good luck.

I use Threelac and Grapefruit seed extract............are these good ways to get rid of it, or are rx drugs better? Do you think that hangover feeling in the morning is from mass die off reactions?

I believe what you are using is good. Just keep in mind that if the candida comes back, or the hangover feeling continues, that something else is behind it. The body allows the candida to overgrow in some situations.

It definitely could be die-off. How long have you been taking them? You're taking good products. Personally, for me, GSE wasn't enough. What helped me was adding Caprilyc acid and oil of oregano. They all work slightly differently so, there is less a chance of the candida becoming resistant.

I also like to rotate probiotics. I read an article in Prevention (very mainstream health magazine) that our gut probiotic make-up is very individual, like a fingerprint, so it is better to replenish it with as many different strains as possible. If you just stick to the most popular, acidophilis, and your gut mainly contained something else, you'll actually end up a little imbalanced,not at your ideal make-up.

I just got my results from my naturopath and she said i didnt have a candida problem (Genova Diagnostics). I guess maybe it is just from some other food intolerance or something.

Hold the gluten,

I've read various of your posts over the course of you being on board. I'd highly recommend seeing a good LLMD and being tested through Igenex for lyme as well as other testing that LLMD's do. Lyme does cause what you are feeling.

I didn't realize there were other probiotics than acidophilis. Do you mind explaining more about other types of probiotics?

I read somewhere that Candida may cause a person to have a wicked sweet tooth, when it is starving for sugars. Is there any truth to this and could this be a sign of Candida either dying off or coming back?

Here is a link to the article I read. Basically, it tells about some of the different straines, and what researchers are discovering they do. I have taken so many courses of antibiotics, my gut was in bad shape. Acidophilis helped a lot, but I'm doing much better since I started taking supplements with more strains and rotating them. DanActiv seems especially helpful for me. My allergies seemed to have improved since I started drinking.

    What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?    
    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
