Fruit or not to fruit, that is the question?
For nearly 5 weeks I have had zero crap apart from a bag of crisps and a few stolen chips.
I have fasted for 10 days and really thought I would be jumping off the roof by now.
Over a week ago I cut my hand and it ended up infected and left me feeling pretty crap.
Then I had itching started in my throat again and my eyes and ears.
Even my scalp seemed to be itchy. Then at the weekend my eyes started to water and I got what appeared to be full blown hay fever. On top of that my gums had swollen up and my mouth felt tight, especially when I was eating an apple.
Wtf? So annoying. Then it dawned on me doh! If I have candida it is fed by sugar along with other things.
I never eat a huge amount of fruit, sometimes I put an apple in my juice along with lemons and limes, and maybe have the odd piece but in general its veggies I eat.
But since I have been doing this healthy eating I have really upped my fruit intake. Bananas, apples, pears, melon, strawberries and hunners of tangerines. What else r u going to eat when you are hungry and avoiding all dairy and wheat?
But this could have put my candida which was slight, out of control?
My sinuses kicked off again, I have a slight headache and just as I am about to go raw for a week.
Clearly on a raw food diet I would be eating fruit, so there is another dilemma?
Is the fruit making me feel worse?
Luckily my friend is coming with her vega machine in a few weeks, but till then I will move to another way of eating to heal candida.
The reason I love that machine is it just cuts right to the chase and tells you what is happening in your body now.
But I think its obvious, the fruit needs to go too. And the carrots, which I live on. Another wee challenge for me, but I am up for it!
Let's see how this goes.
This is what is crazy about nutrition and why we can get very confused.
