If it feels good... DO IT !!

Has been a bit since I posted.. have been in a fatigued stupor. Chatting with an old friend I decided to start taking anti-fungal herbs again. Magically.. in about 2 weeks...I am starting to feel better.
I exercised twice today.. had a decent day at work.. and spun the kids around on my shoulders a few times thus far today.. amazing.
My diet has been low fat vegan for 2010 - high raw (80%+)...
I have no idea why the fungus still exists .. but it does. I will continue with the diet and herbs until I am better.
Obviously .. something has not healed fully... but am making progress. The last time I started the herbs.. it almost killed me (classic die off symptoms - herxheimer? reaction)... this time was no big deal.. took a couple of weeks to start feeling better... like magic.
I literally went from a fogged stupor sleeping 12 hours a day with naps if possible... to feeling better than I have since I was last on the herbs in 2 weeks. I was contemplating quitting my job and all sorts of nonsense.. getting really depressed...etc...
I am as idealistic as the next person.. but I also have to live and support my family...
For those out there trying the LFRV diet to resolve a fatigue issue.. it WORKS.. and it may work
much quicker with some herbal assistance !
All the best,


  1. I'm so glad you're feeling better, Russ. I had chronic fatigue years ago, and on occasion will get those same sensations again. Feeling good is more fun! :)

  2. Thanks Kim.

    Out of cruriousity... how did you get rid of it?

  3. At the time (about 12 years ago), I started acupressure sessions using the NAET/JMT protocols for allergy elimination. When I got to the "Epstein-Barr" clearing, I noticed a major shift in how I felt. I remember feeling that I went from about 40% to 80% back to "normal." Of course, normal is now different for me as I've incorporated more exercise and a far healthier diet.

    Over the years, I've participated in many other modalities that I love (Reiki, CranioSacral Therapy, Massage, Distance Energy Work) and they all have been of benefit to me, especially for relaxation, building clarity, and connecting with my sense of spirit. But clearing out the virus (or breaking the circuit that was running) many years ago seemed to make the biggest first step for me toward a real sense of vitality.

    In the last couple of years, following 80/10/10 (even sporadically) has made a huge difference in the health of my immune system: allergies, colds, flus, and so on are nearly a thing of the past. When I do get them, I am reminded of how I used to feel almost all of the time ~ and I'm indescribably grateful to be feeling healthier nowadays.

    Let me know if you'd like more information. I can email you through The Fit Option. :)

    Take care,

  4. Thanks a bunch Kim... so glad to hear ur over it. I have something the herbs knock back.. that is certain...Candida is the obvious result of another problem.. I am healing.. just want to keep whatever it is at bay so I can think while I heal... ;~)
