Is this apple cider vinegar still working for you threeyearsandcounting?
I'm getting much better using it. It's been ~2 months since I last visited IBSgroup and since then, I've been intensely working out (every single day = cardio, plus 3
-4x a week lifting), cut out all dairy + gluten, and started up Florastor recently. The ACV is primarily my weight controller now, but it's good to know that it provides enzymes that allow me to have full, complete BMs every single time now!
I'm pretty sure I have a severe case of Candida.
Started up Florastor last Monday night and my odor was horrific during class Wednesday+Friday to the point that it reached many more people than before (lol). However, that may be a die-off symptom and my tongue (which was heavily coated in white) is getting so much better. Yesterday, I developed an "ear infection" (stuffed right ear) and I was just researching about it and it appears to be a symptom of massive Candida die-off toxins being released. I didn't plan to come back here till I'm 100% cured, but I figure you deserve a heads up. It also makes me feel much better knowing that the smell got worse with Florastor since that must mean it's a die-off.
My Advice: Cut out ALL dairy/gluten except eggs (watch your mood improve BIG TIME - as will your BM), exercise daily (and work up a sweat - take photos to watch how awesome your physical transformation will be), take a strong probiotic (in my case Florastor), eat healthy (no, eating a hamburger without the buns isn't healthy lol), and keep doing it till ###### gets better.
I won't check back here for a couple weeks - I truly think I'm really, REALLY close now - but I wish all of you the best! I *will* let you know when I am 'cured' of the odor (but I think the habits I picked up from trying to cure myself will stay with me forever - such as no gluten/dairy due to mood improvement).
For guys: make sure to eat a high-fat, high-protein diet and not a low-fat diet as high-fat -> higher testosterone production -> more confidence and that'll help a bit with anxiety. Quit wanking it, too (read yourbrainonporn for more info).
Anyways, I'm out. See you in a couple weeks/months.
1Love, brothers and sisters.
