I took probiotics of Therelac and Tru fFlora this summer, switched every other week and after about 6 weeks I got a burning tongue… finally figured out that it must have stirred up the yeast that resided in my body and was growing out of control. I too went to drs. to ask why my tongue was white and I craved sugar and my tongue had slits on it that sometimes were so painful and no one could help me… until I discovered I had hyper thyroidism… after changing my diet to the Paleo diet, and going dairy and gluten free plus homeopathy and taking supplements I am totally off all thyroid medicines. They wanted to kill my thyroid but I did not want radioactive iodine in my system, It took 8 years and would have healed sooner if I had cut out all foods that weren’t on that diet but I still had sugar and things with sugar in them. Now I have a good thyroid but the yeast is in die off and it has been awful… flu like symptoms and burning mouth which has calmed down with swishing cayenne pepper in it… I am retracing symptoms right now that I had the past 8 years. Some in my family are telling me that I am diagnosing myself and want me to go to Mayo. Well, I am not sure they will find anything as my last physical did not show anything.
I am using acupuncture to help keep the lymphs open and flowing plus I am using caproyl oil to kill the yeast, bentonite clay to cleanse the toxins and psyllium fiber to pull it out with a good probiotic. I think I have gone thru the worst and am on the curve to recovery. I am unable to eat much..I am on the candida diet of no sugar, fruit, yeast, vinegar, processed foods… and I have lost LOTS of weight.
I feel good for a couple days and then it hits. Right now I am not taking anything to kill the yeast except the diet and supplements to build my body up as I was detoxing so fast and hard that my tongue was raw and mouth burnt up and full of white yeast especially in the AM>
I HAVE STARTED DRINKING pAU D ARCO TEA… BUT ONLY A CUP A DAY SO i WILL INCREASE IT. i HAVE ALSO STARTED OIL PUOOING IN MY MOUTH WITH COCONUT OIL BUT NEED TO SLOW DOWN AS THE TONGUE GETS SO SORE.
MY DAUGHTER INSISTS I GO TO MAYO BUT I AM ONLY COVERED BY A SPECIALIST AND WHAT SPECIALIST DO I SEE TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS CANDIDA HASNT MANEFESTED INTO SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER LIKE OTHER AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES, ETC?
