After being tired of chronic fatigue , acne , constipation , thirst, lightheadedness , cold hands and feet, a general feeling of being out of it , and headaches that seemed to come every time I ate sugar, I did a lot of research online and decided to go on the Candida Cleanse where I basically only eat vegetables, organic meat, seeds, pseudo-grains and nothing that breaks down into sugar. I ve been on it now for three weeks, but I haven t been following it completely-I skipped buying the anti-fungals and probiotics and every once in a while have a handful of blueberries, carrots, rice or beans. Also it turned out my almond butter had added sugar in it. I do feel better mostly because my self esteem has probably gone up knowing I m eating much healthier, but my symptoms haven t seemed to lift much since transitioning to this new lifestyle, and after eating a green apple yesterday, I got a headache immediately and have been feeling a little lightheaded ever since. Even more unusual to me is that I m still constipated for the most part, but when I go, it s very very dark, odorless and turns to powder only when flushing (or becomes crumbly like a cake)-otherwise it looks like almost normal. I always feel like there s much more in my body though. I guess my overall questions are, am I not following the diet strict enough (should I buy the anti-fungals and probiotics?) or am I completely off base with this candida thing?
