  • More Tests

    In my relentless search to find the root cause of my problems, I have had various tests. There are a myriad of tests available from the NHS, and even more privately. This is a summary of tests I have undertaken in the past 5 months.

    Stool Analysis

    I have had a comprehensive stool analysis conducted by Parasite ...

  • Could it be FODMAP ?

    From my initial diagnosis of CD, I soon realised that the NHS recommended protocol wasn’t going to cut it, so I searched the net for a more wholesome alternative. It wasn’t long before I found out about Candida overgrowth. This appeared to me to be the root of all my ills. The diet that came ...

  • Beware Raisins and Dates

    So I got addicted to Dates, which in hindsight was a stupid thing to let happen. I figured they wern’t too bad to eat – better than chocolate, or other processed rubbish. However, eating 200g in one sitting is not a good thing as this has caused a complete relapse in my symptoms. I was ...

  • Blood Tests

    So, the Doc suggested I should get tested for Osteoporosis, as apparently I am at a much higher risk now. The simple blood test would check my B12, and Folate levels because low levels are a key indicator. As I was having blood taken, I asked whether I could have a Kidney function test, and ...

  • Night Sweats and Back Pain

    It’s been a few weeks since I started drinking lemon and EVOO. The night sweats still continue but aren’t as bad as they were, and my back pain has subsided significantly. About two weeks ago, I did my own urine analysis, and found Leukocytes to be a little raised, but Urobilinogen to be off the scale. ...

  • Liver Care Protocol

    A liver cleanse is another protocol on my to do list. So, having read various instructional articles on the best methods for approaching this, I gathered up some ingredients. As you may already be aware the list goes as follows, Epsom Salts, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Grapefruit. I have Epsom Salts for bathing, so ...

  • Slow Progress

    Okay, so I knew this road was going to be a long one. After reading countless articles, forum posts, and testimonials that were often scary, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but on the whole, informative. I found the general consensus to be that you should expect it to take a few years, if you’re lucky – a few months.

    Naively starting out ...

  • Diatomaceous Earth And Other Remedies

    It’s been a while since I last posted, so i’m going to wrap up my previous months experiences right now.

    First off, I believe my condition to be more of a parasitic infection than anything else. I am not totally sure about this, as testing for a specific cause is extremely difficult. I have had two ...

  • Ranitidine HCL vs Betaine HCL part 2

    Continued from this post

     

    After further testing, I have discovered that Betaine HCL is effective against bloating.

    I developed a case of bloating more severe than normal, so I mixed up a teaspoon of Baking Soda with some warm water, and drank it quickly. There was no noticeable change in symptoms after 15 minutes, so I made ...

  • Muscle Atrophy – Wasting

    My right leg thigh muscle – just above my knee is significantly smaller than my left knee. This is a concern as the arthritis which had plagued me for about 6 months has virtually disappeared. I did notice that once the swelling had subsided from my fungal arthritis attack, my muscle looked smaller, but it ...
