It is up-to-date and gives a summary of what I am doing. (Just click on my name to the right of this post to access it.) I have continued to take 1/4 capsule of Candidase per day, along with about 1/32 pill (ground into powder) of the folate supplement FolaPro most days. Forebearance has had good success with small amounts of these substances, and so I am following her lead. Candidase is supposed to kill yeast. I had a raging sinus infection and a lot of diarrhea when i took a full capsule last week, and so I am going easy on it now. Yeast is my foresworn enemy, but I don't want to put too much stress on my body. The folate supplement is one of the components of the methylation cycle block protocol being discussed on the board by Rich van Koynenberg. Taking a larger amount prompted more of a detox response than I want at this time. My hope is that a very small amount will calm down my brain for the time being. Eventually (after i get through most of my antiviral usage), I may use more in an attempt to get better and stay well. On the Krebs cycle front, I have started taking 500 mg of acetyl-l-carnitine and 3 mg of ribose. (I think that larger amounts of ribose contributed to my yeast problem.) I also am taking 50 mg NADH (sublingual), 300 mg of CoQ10, and generous doses of magnesium. In addition, I ordered some Coenzyme A, which when taken in large enough doses is supposed to help. I have had good results from some of these substances on their own, and the combination is supposed to work even better to increase energy. We shall see. I have felt extremely sleepy during the past couple of days, and actually have been sleeping quite a lot. I am taking this as a sign that my body is resting and hopefully killing lots of viruses, and so am not making any efforts to "overrule" it. I am not certain what is causing the sleepiness. It could be the FolaPro. I also have been drinking some reishi tea given to me by my Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor, and it is possible that the immune strengthening effects of this are contributing. Perhaps I eventually will figure it out. My lower back has been hurting a bit. Usually I have no back pain whatsoever. It has been noted by others in the past that this may be associated with the use of Candidase. I have yet to settle on an explanation of why this might be, but will continue to monitor into the future. My muscles have been more stiff than they have been in recent months. I'm not sure what to make of that either. I'm not experiencing any other symptoms except for occasional feverish feelings (which I am attributing to viral killing) and ongoing fatigue. In other words....compared to part of the time I've been on Famvir, I'm doing reasonably well!
