Radishes are strong anti-fungals. I actually let a bag go over a month to see how long it would take to rot. It outlives everything organic in our fridges. It's truly remarkable.
Yesterday, I forgot just how strong the anti-fungal properties in radishes were, and I got violently ill after eating 2 of them. The following might be a little graphic for some, so stop reading if you're that person.

Friends, that violent episode was not a result of the candida, but rather a result of the anti-fungals KILLING some of the candida. This is called "Die off", "healing crisis" or "Herxheimer reaction". Most of us call it "die off". When you kill candida, it can release over 70+ toxins in the body that can have a wave of varying results. This is why logging and monitoring everything is so important.
I found that there are many people who actually chase after die-off symptoms because they want to kill the wild candida. I'm not there yet, and I don't know if I want to be.
Also to note. I found a bruise on the back of my left, middle finger. Monitoring it to make sure it doesn't turn into a clot. Its a little smaller than a pencil eraser head, but still important.
Still haven't written back. My mother would call this laziness, but with candida, everything is so much effort. You really can't understand unless you go through it ; well maybe people who have experienced depression can understand. It's not laziness at all.
Finally, if I've not mentioned it earlier, I am approaching 2 months of treatment this coming Wednesday. I've already lost 40lbs. :( Not a healthy way to lose weight. I can even see the top few ribs of of my rib cage - which is what actually prompted me to weigh myself. I need to find healthy calories that can work on this diet. =/
