Hey board, it's been quite a while since I've posted here, but I know many of you will have an answer or some good advice at the very least.
I haven't been raw for over a year, I'm still vegan and i eat mostly organic foods, but a lot of vegan, organic junk food has found it's way into my lifestyle. I'm hoping to be about 75-80% raw by the middle of April. I feel such a negative difference since i fell off the wagon, including weight gain, sever depression, trouble breathing, zero libido, and candida albicans. :(
I am ready to go mostly raw again, I've been trying anyway, but I'm being held back by this awful candida!! I have a fridge full of tasty fresh organic greens but I've been getting horrible cravings for bread and other sugary substances. Once I start often times I can't stop until it hurts. Same goes for anything containing nutritional yeast. I've cut that out as well since its known to feed candida.
How can I kill this off completely? Should I fast? Master cleanse w/o the syrup? Hang upside down from the rafters until it seeps out? I'm seriously willing to try anything at this point.
oh yes, and I've also added unsweetened, plain soy yogurt to my diet as well as raw coconut oil (i heard both these help to kill the yeast).
