Just Back From the Doc... How's That Diet Going?!

This morning I had a quick live blood test to see how the antifungal, anti-yeast diet was going. I also have been taking a supplement to kill fungus, & a probiotic from the doctor to help flood my gut with good bacteria which helps kill the yeast (I always take a probiotic but have switched to what he uses).

So what did my blood show? He didn't see any fungus, or the parasite which showed up last time. He didn't see any new yeast, but some adult yeast that still need to die off. One of the yeast looked like a butterfly. He explained that this yeast had created a biofilm around it that makes it invisible to my immune system, & therefore really really difficult to kill off. Just like bacteria can morph & become stronger, yeast is doing the same thing as a result of antibiotics we take as well as food we eat that has been exposed to antibiotics (basically all non-grass-fed, non-organic beef, non-pastured & non-organic chicken, etc.). Which then makes the yeast incredibly hard to get rid of, especially when we continue to eat anything with sugar, which feeds yeast. Being off of any type of sugar has helped prevent my body from creating new yeast.

He said overall, my blood looked good, & I didn't need to continue on the diet for three more weeks, just two. Afterward, he would like me to go on a blood type-based diet.

He did see something that indicates that I have leaky gut syndrome. Fun stuff! He gave me a supplement to help heal my gut. He also has some recommendations for killing off the biofilm & therefore the remaining yeast, that I cannot talk about here for eff-dee-ay compliance reasons.

All of the issues I have - leaky gut, yeast, adrenal fatigue, slight anemia (oh yeah, forgot to mention that one) - only become worse if left untreated. Time + any of those issues = much bigger problems. Y'all I'm 30! I want to be healthy when I'm 40, 50, 60+! I am taking control of my health now.

I think what's been the most telling is the fact that... we already ate pretty healthy. We don't have gluten at home, very little dairy, & just make a few exceptions when outside the home - we don't gorge on anything. We like real food, very little processed, etc. And yet, the exceptions that I make still affect my body like this.

What do I really want? I want to be as healthy as possible. What if it means never eating gluten or sugar ever again? Is that likely? No. But was the old status quo enough to continue getting me by? Nope.

Lots to chew on (no pun intended)! I already know that being healthy equals sacrifice. It means not eating what I want when I want it. But it's time to tighten the reigns even more.

Lord help me (no, really!).
