Anti-Fungal treatment

Posted on May 19, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Almost two weeks ago I started taking the anti-fungal supplements. I completed the supplements for the parasite, and once I finish the anti-fungal supplements I will be re-tested for the parasite. The first day I took the anti-fungals they kicked my A$$. I felt miserable, I was light headed I felt dizzy. The next day was even worse I felt like I was coming down with something I took my temperature and it was fine, but I felt really warm. Sunday I felt okay but I was exhausted, since I didn’t sleep well the night before. Monday I still wasn’t feeling well, and I e-mailed my heath care practitioner. What I was experiencing was called the “Herxheimer Reaction”, this reaction occurs when the body tries to eliminate toxins at a faster rate than they can be properly disposed of. The more toxic one’s bodily systems are, the more severe the detoxification, or healing crisis. It is characterized by a temporary increase in symptoms during the cleansing or detox process which may be mild or severe. You may feel worse and therefore conclude that the treatment is not working. But these reactions are instead signs that the treatment is working and that your body is going through the process of cleaning itself of impurities, toxins and imbalances.

After reading that I was excited, I felt like okay this is working! I’ve heard about this healing reaction before, and as awful as it was to experience it, I thought this is a sign, my body is healing itself.

For the rest of the week my nausea was pretty bad when I read, so I just took it easy. I’m taking the anti-fungals for two months along with a digestive enzyme and then I will begin the second part of the 4-R program the replace part. One of the most difficult parts of this journey, is that I still feel tired all the time, and part of me still wonders is this really going to work? Am I going to wake up one day and have energy, and not only have energy but have energy all day long? I have to remind myself I didn’t become ill overnight, and I’m not going to feel better overnight either.
