  • Jad, Knowing your post, I really think your muscle weakness could be caused by your long term use of lisinopril. Candida can certainly be a factor as well. Candida is very tenacious, and very hard to get rid of. It is also extremely difficult to test for - blood and stool tests give you an indication, but they aren't really accurate. The best test I've found is the written questionaire on the following website: www.wholeapproach.com. There is also a saliva test you can easily do at home. This website has the best food list I've found as well and you can print it out - great for folks with gluten intolerance too. There are three things that need to be done for candida (usually - NAET treatments also address this problem):1. Kill the candida overgrowth2. Rebuild the intestinal flora with probiotics3. Keep your diet in check and limit sugars, yeasted and processed foods. I recommend Threelac as it is very easy to take, and most people feel amazingly better while taking it. If you take digestive enzymes with this product it will help things move along. Threelac kills the candida, yet is very safe and is food grade. Usually for candida you need to try two different treatments and give yourself a couple months AT LEAST to get it under control. In addition to the threelac you can try other antifungal formulas that contain wild oregano oil, grapefruit seed oil, caprilionic acid (sp?), bentanite, and others. There are different websites that sell Threelac, and some require you to pay a membership fee...I am not sure of the best place to buy so just google for info. www.candidasupport.org sells it, and it is also a very helpful informative website. Find a website that offers a money back guarantee - if it doesn't work for you just return for a full refund.:) Candida is a naturally occurring yeast found in the intestines, but with our Western diet and lifestyle it can mutate into a fungal form and create all sorts of systemic problems. There are a few scientist that believe candida is a factor in cancer, and they are researching this correlation. I think it makes a lot of sense as cancer cells also occur naturally in our body, and mutate in a similar fashion. I've been treating myself for candida issues ever since my youngest was born, over two years ago. I keep Threelac on hand when I feel myself getting sinus and digestive symptoms or if the back of my tongue gets a thick coating. Or when I order pizza:p . I am hoping with my continued NAET treatments I can really keep it at bay and won't have any future problems. We'll see! Best wishesDOM

  • thanks acuann for fast responce, in my other post i wrote that about midway through this ordeal a natural path diagonsed candida and put me on a strict candida diet. i stuck to the diet very well maybe 99% of the time for about 18 months. i felt great, no more flem, acid reflux, slept better, more energy, but my muscles continued to weaken, so i decided i might as well eat what i want as the result was to find some improvement in the muscles and i didnt. was very frustrated. a couple of month ago i woke up and my legs were aching day after day for weeks so i tryed accupucture and the aching went away. now i went to the NAET doctor and chinese medicine guy and started a new kind of gluten diet and still no improvement in the muscles. then this last weekend my wife and boys went to visit inlaws and i decided to stay home, i had a few frustrating thing happened and i was missing them alot so i ate bad while they were gone, pizza, pop, candy, hambergers, and so on. now my legs are aching again and that made me think of the candida. so i thought maybe when i first went on the candida diet maybe it was not enough, if i had cut down on the high in sugar fruit i was eating and had taken something like THREELAC maybe i would have had more success. side note while i was on the diet at the end i weight about 175 and had cut my blood pressure medication down to 5mg instead of the 30mg now. i did the questionaire and finished with a score of 122, according to the form that is severe but i don't know. would i ask my NAET doctor to test for yeast or something else? as you can see i am grasping at straws. anyway i might as well order the THREELAC, not too expensive and what can it hurt. one more questiion, do you have a weekly diet plan that you follow? thanks again,jad

  • I have the impression that your body rejects some vital nutrients. That's why the diets have not been enough. You should have a surrogate with you for the NAET TESTING- so you can get tested for 15 basic nutrients in one visit. Toxicity, such as blood pressure medicine is enough to mess anyone and make them allergic to vital elements.

  • hi eatafruit78, thats a great idea, i didnt think of a serogate. after reading my post and story do you think candida could be a contributing factor and the THREELAC is worth a try with everything else? jad.

  • hi eatafruit78, thats a great idea, i didnt think of a serogate. after reading my post and story do you think candida could be a contributing factor and the THREELAC is worth a try with everything else? jad.I personally did the whole candida treatment on my own, and in my first NAET treatment I tested negative for candida but positive for parasites, mercury, pesticide, formaldehyde, polyester, calcium, vitamin-T, Vitamin B complex, etc.After doing the Sugar treatment, I never felt the "Candida " symptoms again. I had a sugar allergy, not candida overgrowth- hehe.I really don't think candida is the big problem here. I would focus more on your vital nutrient intake. In case you reject some, you can try to give your body "something" he can use. Being allergic to meats, chicken, sea food, egg, calcium,vitamins, and grains was a huge factor for me. Once I cleared them, I was able to reclaim my sanity in all levels.There is more than one way to bake a chicken- try Reiki too or Pranic healing if you can find it in Med Hat- it might work like NAET- just by breaking whatever blockages you may have.Hang in there Ted-Sincerely,Maribel.

  • :) Hello acuann* I have a question, this ailment known as canida, how, in your opinion is it introduced into the human body? I have my opinion and i'm sure that you have yours. So without further adu let's begin, I am a firm believer in homeopathic cures, ones that stem from the natural cures. To begin lets start with the life of a child, the child comes home from the hospital. The parents joyful at the thought of a new addition to the family, as well they should be. These parents are the off spring of their parents and so on and so forth. Child comes down with a fever, goes to doctor, next the doctor says, well if you want my opinion it's an ear infection. Then he recomends lots of juices, kept warm, out of drafts and etc. Next, after child doesn't show improvement anti~biotics are suggested, doctor says, take all of the medication or it is all for nought. Parents comply, after all doctor knows best, or does he? Next, child does as parents have suggested, oop's childs condition takes a turn and not for the better. Parents begin to worry, no that's wrong they already are worried. Next doctor recomends a regiment of inoculations, flu, tetenis, measles, mumps, rabies "don't understand the rabies", worms, parasites, small pox, chicken pox. Next a repeate of previous shots, the old ones have expiered. Next, childs first visit to the emergency room, because the poor thing is sick from all of the previous shots. Family doctor is called, says your child is in good hands, Oh, is he? First emergency room doctor is stumpt, calls for a second opinion. second doctor is stumpt as well, says child must be kept for observation over night. Next, no improvement. time for one more nights stay. Child finally shows some sign of improvement, go's home, but before child go's home the hospital staff, doctors, x~ray techs, nurses, and finally the accounts recievable people ask Hey! Folks, you see before this point the parents were the most wonderful people in the world, anyhow, the billing dept. asks, Who is your insurance carrier? The parents look to each other and shrug their shoulders, were not sure. So now all with out stretched hands simply say, just write us a check, your moneys good, but is it? The husband has been without work for about 6 mo's and the wife just got through delivering the child, humph!. So in conclusion the hospital, doctors, x~ray techs, nurses, oh, don't forget, the accounts recievable people will all be paid, meaning if the parents have to go to court and be sued for the money, they just don't care as lond as they get paid. Now 100 yr's ago, people didn't have anywhere near the problems we have, because they lived all natural. Living out their lives in prosperity and health. But todays no it alls buy books medications that make matters worse in some cases. Well everybody i'm getting a wee bit tired, so put your collective minds together and try to find a solution. http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/hogndog/sleepingfeet2wy.gifThank You.

  • after you were treated for the sugar alergy were you able to eat them again on a limited basis? do you think i should go back to the NAET doctor before ordering the THRELAC? just getting oppinions. jad forgive my spelling i could never spell very well.I keep a real healthy diet - I am not allergic to sugar in any form anymore. I eat ice cream, cakes, rice pudding in occassion. The sugar allergy was affecting my ability to eat fruit- that was the huge problem.So now I can eat any form of sugar with out getting reactions, but of course I would never abuse sugar- and there is very little chance to abuse it, coz my body does not crave it anymore. I credit NAET but I have to give myself some credit because after reading "Never Be Sick Again" by Ray Francis, I changed my whole dieting habits- hence my NAET treatments work very well since the first time.Now I eat lots of raw fruits and leafy greens, many raw nuts and seeds- some grains, more legumes than grains, egg, fish, flax- sometimes potatoes and squashes- Sometimes I eat bread or pasta in small amounts, but not as a meal, as a little snack. No soda, just herbal tea or black coffee. All meats in moderation ( no lean meats).You might as well be allergic to anything in the content of the candida medicine, so you may want as well use the money on a session of energy healing (NAET, Reiki, JMT)- as long as you already have all the nutrients that you need in your diet.Don't worry about your typing, hehe- I learned English 10 years ago, so I can always figure out what you are saying :p - no biggie. I hope you understand what I am saying :D (J/K)Love and Light,Maribel.(Today was my first time back in school since I got sick. Just for an hour. It went well. I felt head pain due to the books- but it quickly went away when I walked out for fresh air. My newsprint naet treatment is on Saturday)

  • Best resource I have seen / used with patients is "Conquer Candida and Restore Your Immune System" by Jack Tips, ND, PhD. You can access it at www.drjacktips.com Jack also is a classical homeopath. The diet is very strict, and sometimes tough to follow. Using Dr. Tips recommendations many times has eliminated the need for such a restrictive diet. His recommendations also include using some supplements from Syystemic Formulas of Ogden, UT. They must be accessed thru health pros. Some other alt docs I know (particularly one MD) really feel that the presence of bad bacteria are what really allows the yeast to grow. Dealing with the bacteria effectively - again mostly with Systemic Formula # 3 - will change the terrain and the yeast will go away. Most of them, as we always have a few. And acuann and others - nice to see the comments about the NAET.IMO Nambudripad (the N from NAET) is a major genius.

  • :) I have a question and I believe it's a fair one. Acuann, bless your heart, I was thinking. What would you say to creating a new thread. The tittle could read something like this. Acuanns answer corner, now if you think this is an insult, it isn't If you will think about it the idea does have a bit of merit. That way rather than you visiting every forum, there would be only the one to attend to. Otherwise the rest of ushttp://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/hogndog/fishingnotmy.gif might as well go

  • Ralph, I agree with you about other bacteria being involved. What is so special about candida is that it mutates - from yeast to fungus. It is a question of getting your immune system (gut) strong enough to keep it all in check. There are many different ways to change the intestinal terrain, but in my view diet is usually not strong enough to do this on its own. I usually recommend Threelac as you don't have to radically change your diet and it's easy to take. Patient complience is always a factor in any cleanse. Jad - I do agree that it may be best to just stay with NAET and talk to your practitioner about candida - they will best know how to approach treatment. The Threelac will always be there if you need it, as well as other cleanses. I will look up Dr. Tips as I am not familiar with his work, and am always wanting to get more info on candida. Ralph, I also want to thank you for mentioning NAET in your post a couple of months ago. I've known about this treatment, but it finally got me thinking that I should try it, and I am so happy I did! Dr. Devi is a true pioneer, and I cannot wait till I can take her first seminar, hopefully later this summer. Best wishesDOM

  • hi hogndog, your response to acuann seemed a little sarcastic unless i am just imagining things. i asked acuann the question because he had previously replied to my other thread and when i did a search in the forum for the word THREELAC his name came up recommending it. i wanted his opinion as he obviously uses the product and the title of my post "a question for acuann" was the easiest way to get an answer. i have always wondered if had not followed the candida diet strickly enough and that is why it did not work and maybe adding a product like THREELAC could make the difference. if i am wrong about the sarcasm then i apologise, i am just trying to find a solution to my health issues. jad

  • :o Just a dad* I am so sorry, i didn't mean to put a tarnish to Acuann's character. In todays world it is so easy to give wrong meaning to the written word. Take the bible for instance, are you with me so far? Acuann is what I consider to be a very talented individual, agreed?. As with ant specialist in any field, said individual will need the proper surroundings to conduct business. Ask yourself this; when you go to a professionals office you will be expecting the best treatment money can buy, I know I do. Now the (bottom line), you don't go to an emergecy room for advice, or you may, I don't know you. Here is what was meant by my statement, which btw i'm not ashamed of. We are in an open forum, allowed to do just about anything within reason. So if that be the case, (I have done this myself) this is my suggestion All forums have many applications dealing with everything from a~z I don't see anything wrong with Acuann putting up a shingle announcing, (qualified advisor) above his/her name, do you? In this way he won't be spreading him/herself too thin. One office, each office has a seperate room fo you or me. About now your feeling better already, thinking to yourself i'm going to get my own individual treatment. Acuann is happy, his/her patients are happy, staff is happy, (not as many messes to pick up). So everybody is happy, agreed? Now that this situation seems to be under control, i'm going to make myself a sandwhich. One more thing, these forums don't have pm's so that a person can take their idea to the person it concerns. Although they might have that here, i'm just not proven my personality (rude, insulting, name caller, just an all around pest). Now I don't see myself in that light but then who's to know. Good Luck with the ailment, and maybe Acuann's new shingle. Thank You. the dawg

  • hello again hogndog, your post just confirmed my original impression of your sarcastic attack on acuann. i was in no way asking him to diagagnos me just asking his opinion on THREELAC, basically does it work or is it a scam. maybe i should have posted "a question for hogndog" and maybe that would have made you feel good about your self instead of attacking someone who was actually trying to help me with my question. your response had nothing to do with my question and everything to do with acuann. maybe i should have posted "does anyone know anything from personal experience using THREELAC", or "THREELAC does anyone know if it really works the way the sites claim it does", or well you get the idea. you can be who ever you want to be hogndog but alot of people on this site are looking for answers or suggestions not sarcasm. acuaan a really appreciate your imput, that is why i asked for it. jad

  • I still don't get it? I wasn't attacking him I was just trying to make his load a lttle bit lighter. Acuann knows a great deal, having a nice quiet place to go is refreshing, i think so anyways. But I stiil don't understand why I have no way of contact (p.m.'s) where this can be hashed out one to one. I tried that route but with no success. Honestly, don't you think he would have appreciated the jesture? There is just no comunication that's all, sorry.:(

  • To both Jad and Hogndog: Although it's nice to be the center of this attention, I think it's besides the point, don't you?;) It is very easy to be misconstrued and misunderstood, especially with the written word. I don't think anyone was trying to be mean here...there has been a lot of that in the past and the Moderator is hopefully keeping up on threads which are mean spirited and downright objectionable. I can only offer my suggestions, and certainly do not wish to be known as an expert on anything! I am only trying to help and hope I have been helpful to posters on this site. There are many different paths to wellness, and I wish everyone luck and good health on their individual paths. By the way, I am female:) .Best wishesDOM

  • hi acuaan. i appreciate your help and am looking in a number or directions for improving my health. the only reason i called hogndog on his post was that i don't want people to me scared to respond to a question on the grounds that they may get attacked. sorry if i implied that you were male, i don't know where i got that from, but i do appreciate your imput, again i just wanted someone who used the product and had recommended it before to give me there opinion on my situation from my earlier threat. you were the logical person as you had responded to my earlier thead and had used and recommended THREELAC. thanks again, jad
