It's probably time I updated my blog. I haven't been keeping up to date with posts/blogs as it seems candida/fungus seem to be causing me the most problems (intensified a billion times by CAPi abxi which I have stopped). I am currently doing the biofilm protocol and anti-candida diet (which I was also doing whilst on CAP), as well as sauerkrauting and kefir-gaining up a storm! Have improved greatly for the most part, but have been prescribed cholestyramine as a mopper to soak up neurotoxins that were found to be extremely high in my gut from yeast. My question is, how do you take this stuff?! I tried in water as the instructions suggested, stirred and drank straight away so it didn't have a chance to thicken but I couldn't get it dwn fast enough. Tried with double the amount of water and still the same problem - it thickens despite me gulping as fast as possible and makes me not just gag, but vomit. Mixing with chocolate pudding as the instructions also suggest would clearly be counterproductive to the candida problem (oh how I'd love some chocolate pudding...or any pudding for that matter). The only success I have had is getting empty gelatin capsules, pouring the sachets into the capsules and drinking them with a fair amount of water. 8 capsules per sachet though and it's very time consuming! Not too mention difficult with my dodgy shaky hands. Any hints?
Also, what's the best timing for it. I'm not on abxi but still on all supplementsi as well as biofilm protocol and still trying to work out how long after/before you can take the stuff. My dr warned me it would taste like cement...I gag down so many revolting things I thought he was underestimating my willpower. Seems not!
Tks in advance to anyone who uses cholestyramine and has advice :-)
