Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for February 18 2007

I’ve been reading about the types of foods that contain copper and I’m checking to see if any of the foods are on the acceptable list of foods on the candida diet. I come across a web site that says I can have apples, blueberries and pears. That would be perfect as I’m getting a little sick and tired of celery and cucumbers. Here’s what it says:

Candida Control Diet – Foods You Can Eat

Vegetables – All vegetables, as much as you want at each meal, except potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, winter squash (acorn & butternut), beans (green beans are okay), and peas which all contain too much sugar. After week #1, you may add the disallowed vegetables in moderate amounts.

Fruit – Fresh is best; frozen only if unsweetened. Serving size is indicated. Do not have more than one serving per meal–limit 3 times a day. No dried fruit or fruit juices allowed.

Apple – 2
Applesauce, unsweetened – 1/3 cup
Apricots – 3 small
Avocado – Unlimited okay
Banana – 1/3
Blueberries – 2 cup
Cantaloupe, cubed – 1 cup
Cherries – 7
Grapes – 2 cup
Grapefruit – 2 (3 2″ diameter)
Honeydew Melon – 2 cup cubed
Nectarine – 1/2
Peach – 2
Pear – 2
Pineapple – 2 cup
Plum – 1 (2 1/4″ diameter)
Raspberries – 2/3 cup
Strawberries – 1 cup
Tangerine – 1 (2 1/4″ diameter)
Watermelon, cubed – 3/4 cup

Meat & Eggs – All meat and eggs are allowed except bacon, sausage, ham, hot dogs or luncheon meats (they all have sugar added). Servings may be as large as you wish. During the 2nd week, you may add cottage cheese, but not hard cheese, as a protein.

Eat your veggies!!!

Veggie Combo Can Stave Off Prostate Cancer
Thursday January 25, 2007

It’s a diagnosis most men fear and about one in seven Canadian males will have to face at one point: prostate cancer. Diet can have a big impact on your health and a recent American study suggests that a combination of vegetables can help prevent the disease.

Broccoli and tomatoes have been proven to contain cancer-fighting agents separately, but scientists at the University of Illinois have found that when you eat them together they work even better at staving off the illness.

U of I doctoral candidate Kirstie Canene-Adams, the study’s lead author, and two food science and human nutrition professors teamed up and fed a powdered mixture of tomato and broccoli to rats with prostate cancer.

Some of the rodents received only the tomato or broccoli alone, some got lycopene, the cancer fighting agent in tomatoes, and others were given a drug commonly prescribed to men with enlarged prostates. A group of rats was also castrated.

After 22 weeks researchers weighed the animals’ tumours and found that the broccoli-tomato powder did the best job in curtailing tumour growth, after castration, which halts the production of the hormones that spur cancer growth.

While tomatoes and broccoli have been shown to slow the growth of cancer cells, doctors recommend that men try and eat a well-balanced diet, full of fruits and veggies of all varieties to help stave off disease.

“We’ve known for a long time that diet was a major factor in whether patients develop prostate cancer,” said Dr. Laurence Klotz, a prostate cancer specialist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. “The diet that’s healthy for your prostate is healthy for your heart.”

If you’re thinking about taking a supplement instead of the real thing you may want to think again. Researchers found that taking a substitute didn’t work as well as eating the veggies.

Thought it might be time to document my daily intake of vitamins, minerals and herbs for the record. I’ve been taking the core vitamin and minerals for a while now and the herbal remedies where only recently added to fight candida. The magnesium, niacin and the multivitamin are the only ones that I know if I’ve missed taking it. The multivitamin has the active form of B6 and sometimes I take it earlier in the day because I have that “weird” feeling in my head. It goes away everytime I take any form of B6.

———————————————————–

I start every morning with the candida trauma kit:

Pysillium Fibre/Caprilic Oil/Bennonite mix

Nu Life: Magnesium: 500 mg three times a day
Vitamin C: 500 mg three times a day
Niacin: 50-100 mg three times a day
Enzymes: 1 capsule three times a day

Nu Life Multivitamin: Twice a day
Olive Leaf & Black Walnut: Twice a day

Nu Life: Omega Three: Once a day (380 DHA content)
Co-enzyme Q10: Once a day
Garlic 1000 mg Once a day

Acidophilus just before bed.

I also take the Magnesia Phosphorica in between doses of magnesium if I need to. I usually get a very mild pain in my chest and it goes away the instant I take it.

For the past few months I’ve also taken a more serious approach to eating more fruits and vegetables and healthy eating. I try to eat 1-2 Fuji apples and 1-3 bananas a day. I’ll have oatmeal with flax seeds for breakfast and sometimes I’ll eat cucumbers and tomatoes as snack foods.

Woke up vibrating…

Well I have to say I’m having some success lately with the vitamins. Still not sure what is the actual cause of the vibration, but for two days in a row I’ve felt nothing when I’ve gone to bed.

Today’s morning paper had a reader poll on their daily intake of five fruits and vegatables a day.

75% of the users polled so far said no.

It’s no wonder the odds of getting Cancer are so high.

With my new doctor mentioning about the thyroid I took to googling to find out what the symptoms were.

Thyroid Goitre, thyroid bruit, fine tremor, weight loss, increased appetite, lid lag, sweating, heat intolerance, family history, lethargy, weight gain, hoarseness, dry skin, hair loss, cold intolerance, delayed reflex, constipation, short stature.

Fine tremor!!! Whoa!!! Maybe I have been explaining it wrong. Internal vibrations / fine tremor. Maybe he’s right! I do have a cold intolerance but none of the other symptoms. Finally something weird that matches my symptom. After doing some more googling, I found a web site that mentioned a diet to maintain a healthy Thyroid.

EATING TO SUPPORT THE THYROID

Enzymes are substances that make life possible. They are needed for every chemical reaction that takes place in the body. No vitamin, mineral or hormone can do any work without enzymes. The metabolic enzymes run all of our organs, tissues and cells. They build our body from proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. You may have all the raw materials to build the above, but without enzymes you cannot even begin.

What are the best source of enzymes? ORGANIC FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES! You can also take plant based enzymes if you eat too much cooked food but if you are trying to heal your thyroid, you must eat plenty of living organic foods.

Very interesting!! I hardly ever eat any fruits or vegetables. This is making sense. Maybe what I should be doing is eating more fruits and veggies.
