"Any thoughts on 5-HTP? I had intense heart-pounding anxiety and also similar feelings of dread. Often they were the aura before a hot flash (year 7 of the flashes, I'm 55). I also had pain in my sternum that would wake me up and was relieved by…"

Mercedes Brian commented on Pat Robinson's blog post Candida Alternatives
"I had candida overgrowths and was on a non-stop candida diet with cleanses (yeast killer, rotate this, clay, psyllium seed extract, twice a day) for years.  Then, I ran into the "fire"!  I ate blue cheese, kefir, sourdough bread,…"

"Not a problem, I just share my personal experiences.  I think it is different for everyone, our bodies are different.  Maybe some of the things that help me, may help others, maybe not. "

"Kari, I have no experience with cider vinegar.  I would think it would depend on the type etc.  Vinegar is a fermented food.  I do drink water kefir and kombucha, which are both also fermented drinks, fermented with colonies of yeast…"

Heartburn help

Hi Pat;I'm loving my voyage away from candida overgrowth (many ferments) and unexplained anemia (gluten-free and gut health guidelines) to health.  Thanks so much for this site.Today I'm worried about the three men in my life: dh, ds, 27 and ds, 14.  They all get heartburn.  ds 27 has it after many meals.  He's fit (carpenter/boat builder), a great, innovative cook, and adaptable (his dw doesn't eat wheat).  His heartburn appears at his throat often, not always, after rum (he sails small boats…See More

Both of my sons have heartburn - what to do?

Ds 27 and now ds 14 have heartburn.  Ds 27 says sometimes he can eat tomatoes, red wine, rum, coffee without any effects, but most of the time they cause instant pain.  Sometimes he can't figure the source. Heartburn around his throat. Often it appears just as he is lying down to sleep.  He is open to dietary changes and supplementation.  His wife doesn't eat wheat and they have adapted really seamlessly.So, a little history: Ds 27 is active, works as a wooden boat-builder and carpenter and…See More

Profile Information

How did you learn about the "Heal Thyself" site?
Through a friend who sent a candida link. Eat lots of everything I've been avoiding (oh yeah, except sugar!). Health, who knew?
What does "holistic" mean to you?
Balanced
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
30 years
a little about me
Anemic, candida struggles. Homeopathy helped alot, but I needed the nutritional support. Very happy to have candida in balance now. I dreamed the answer to candida: balance. Strengthen every part, stop trying to kill candida. So now, I will be working on keeping iron up without Floridex. I do suspect that years of bentonite drinks have absorbed iron and other nutrients. So, I'll be searching anemia, and ridged nails. I'm looking forward to it.
Professional or business affiliations?
I sell photocopiers. Hmm, not sure that I can help here!
