I'm a 19 yr old male from Toronto and I had a very similar story. Did you find that you took antibiotics beforehand? That seemed to start everything for me. I'm also on the same supplements and nothing seems to be improving. Good to see you have a positive mindset, letting this illness take control can drive you crazy. I saw something mentioning a blood transfusion as a potential cure and I was wondering if you could maybe look into that because you work at a hospital. This seems to be our best bet at this point. I have followed the forum every day for about a year, and I can't seem to find anything that helps too much. I'm also under the impression that EMF has something to do with it.
Anyways, all the best man. Hopefully you find something that works for you!
Do you mind telling us how long you have been taking these products?
Turmeric capsules to get rid of the inflammation in your body
God Bless and keep being proactive in becoming patm free / u got this !
I didn't hear about doing a blood transfusion as well. I'm not sure if that's going to be easy for any of us to get because we are young and healthy. I'm not even overweight LOL I have abs, eat very clean already, so idk if it's candida at all. I'm still treating for it, but I'm not sure if that's it at all.
WHAT'S EVEN SCARIER is that I took antibiotics called Omnicef 2 weeks prior before going to the music festival, and boom, PATM. I know mine probably has to due with the antibiotics destroying all of my good bacteria, thus letting candida take over . Also, I smoke marijuana sometimes before I eat because it tastes better. During my antibiotics, I smoked everyday. I just researched that THC can INCREASE candida overgrowth !! Oops.
This just ***** because I'm a very young, good looking, and sexually active kind of person LOL and I just want this to be over . It's only been 3 weeks, so I have to be patient. Following a strict candida diet which is not hard for me since I already diet . It just gets expensive when all you can eat are GRASS FED MEAT !! LOL I'm thinking that we have antibiotic induced PATM which increased our candida overgrowth.
Keep in tocuh, stay positive, and buy some other things . I just bought some chlorealla tablets , to detox heavy metals from my body, and I don't feel any different. I know we want to be fixed tomorrow, and I know that's not going to happen. Enjoy Toronto! I was just there and I took a photo shoot in front of Casa Loma !!
Sending love from Orlando
First sentence didn't = did ** oops lol
Also, HOW DO YOU GET RID OF THUS BRAIN FOG !?!!! I'm dying people . I can barely drive I'm so dizzy all the time :/
this patm brain fog becomes less for me if I eat healthier (more organic, less processed food) maybe it's binding these toxins
Dont panic man we have patm positive!!!. If you said im sick youre sick
The dessicated beef liver pills are on its way . Thanks alot everyone ! Stay positive and screw all those mean faces when they react to us. We got this :)
I hope you are having a fantastic weekend. I wanted to ask you something about removing toxins from our body. The oxy powder is working WONDERS by removing all toxins. Wondering if you tried bentonite clay at all
Hi Justincase_25, I'm having a fine weekend; hope you are as well. Glad the Oxy Powder is working for you! It's a powerful product.
I tried bentonite clay the first year I got PATM. While I think it did get rid of some toxins, it didn't make much of a difference. I also tried psyllium husk, and that didn't do anything.
You say that you are experiencing a lot of brain fog. Can you tell me what your diet is like? I mean, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Just want to know if you might still be eating something you are not. If you eat/drink something bad while taking the supplements, it will negate their effect. The most important thing to avoid is sugar of course, so that means:
No table sugar (use stevia instead)
No fruit juices/soda/alcohol (just drink water)
No caffeine (it spikes blood sugar)
No cookies/cakes/other products with lots of added sugar (stick with almonds, raisins for snacks)
Avoid most fruits (they actually have a lot of natural sugar); pretty much the only safe ones are blueberries and raspberries
One more thing -- avoid bleached food products (white rice, white bread, etc.) Stick with only whole wheat bread and brown rice
I am only eating these products:
Breakfast : 3 Cage free eggs served with a salad made of organic lettuce, organic tomatoes, and organic avocado. Or , I just eat eggs and avocado.
Lunch: Either Grass free steak or no antibiotics ever, organic chicken with either organic brocoli, califlower, asparagus, kale, spinach, a little tomatoe, or more avocado. It all depends on my mood.
Dinner is the same as lunch to be honest. I haven't changed anything at all (because I already eat like this) , however, the grass fed and organic chicken is new to my diet. I usually season with pink himalayan salt, pepper, oregano, tyme, and thats all. Tons of water bottles in my house, but it could be the bpa in them ? Not sure if it's that since I go to the sauna everyday at LA Fitness, and I of course see the horrible faces people make when I'm in the sauna.
I haven't touched coffee, tea, alcohol, sugar, wheat, white, or any kind of grain for 3 weeks now.
Just staying hopeful and patient as I figure out what's going on. Also tried the dessicated beef liver pills, and that didn't work or seem to reduce PATM reactions at all.
Heading to the sauna now ! I'm about to run out of the Candida Cleanse from Purely Holistic. Do you think I should purchase more , or should I wait it out to see if I need to rid my body of toxins ?!
Have a great weekend hoepful12345!! Thanks for responding; it makes me feel like I'm not alone in this war LOL !
Additionally, I'm using antibacterial soaps, no deodorant, or shampoos at all.
I've been doing a lot of research, and I've come up with a hypothesis. I'm going to see an endocrinologist, hopefully with the next week, to check my adrenal glands. I have a lot of the symptoms , especially since I'm an RN LOL !! THAT COULD BE THE ROOT OF IT ALL !! Dealing with tramatic situations for 12-14 hrs a day can transgress to adrenal fatigue. I did check my TSH levels, and they were normal. They might have gotten worse since I've lost my friends to the Orlando tragedy. Additionally, I had to treat the many of the victims, which at that point overworked my adrenals. Keeping you all updated !!!
I've been dealing with this for about a year. I don't make too many people cough but I have symptoms of itchy eyes, nose, mouth area, ear, nape of neck, vaginal/rectal (sorry tmi). Before all of this started I was having a bit of abdominal discomfort ( sharp pains here and there)- but my ultrasound showed everything was fine. My labwork also shows that all as well. I can make people allergic to me from across a store or while driving I notice people having symptoms in their cars or even waiting at the crosswalk! Just the past few months I've noticed my pets getting itchy around me but once they settle down and go to bed they are fine. Same with my spouse. I wish there was a cure. My doctor said I was completely healthy so I'm debating whether or not to go in and ask for some diflucan (antifungal). Also, I read that some of us do not detox properly so it's either something releasing through our skin and while we breathe that makes us have patm. I read chlorella is good for detoxing metal as well as cilantro. ... And I also did that candida cleanse pill purely holistic and taking two a day for three days gave me horrible geez symptoms and since I was home alone I stopped taking them for precaution.
Everything was fine health wise but during a trip to Las Vegas last year I noticed the patm and then noticed it when I got back home and saw my family. People will get itchy and look at the area for a flea or what not or say that they don't know why their eyes are bothering them.
Hi guys? is there anybody that can say he/she is completly cured. or are you guys just feeling better?
I'm not cured at all. I'm so glad everyone is joining this discussion ! To all of us, please stay strong and positive !! I am currently at the doctors office where I will undergo the "cosyntropin stimulation " test. If you aren't familiar with it, google has been a great help LOL ! In brief summary, this test only finds out if I have Addisons Disease or Cushings. .... (endocrine adrenal glands not fuctioning properly)
I found out that 100% of my symptoms are adrenal related. I BARELY get any sleep, and I am always tired yet "wired" everyday. If the endocrinologist says that I'm "healthy and 25 y/o" blah blah blah AGAIN, I will do the cortisol test.
People don't understand that we come here because we NEED ANSWERS ! It ***** that people think that it's all in our head and we make this stuff up. I have told a few people, but they think it's all in my head.
Last thing...I have noticed that when I'm stress free, my back doesn't hurt . If I don't talk excessively in a room, there are some slight reactions. When I relax and use stress relief products from bath and body works, it seems to help my PATM reactions a little. Just some food for thought :) I have also noticed my cats reactions toward me and it hurts my soul .
What you had been gone was my experience too up to now.. I am just staying strong for my family.. I was started to have PATM 4-5 yrs ago.. and i have kidney stone.. but i think it's nothing to do with my situation. My siblings and my family tells me that it's all in my mind,,even though some of them get cough, sneeze and even get fever. I believe that we all have PATM have STRONG MIND that only us can solve the problem. We have to learn how to do it in our own. But i cannot do this w/ my own if i have work and family in me. I just need a big brake/ leave and have long vacation that can teach myself how to manage my own mind. Good diet, meditation, exercise and prayer most of all. Good luck to us! I love you guys.
Hello to everyone!
I just wanted to keep you all updated that I am still going through this battle. I read up on neurotransmitter imbalances and I'm not sure if that is the cause of the symptoms. I believe leaky gut is the ROOT of it all. Hopeful12345 hit it right on the money. We have to heal our guts everyone!
As much as I LOVE alcohol and marijuana, I have to stop it. I will say that the reactions have not ruined my life. Some people find out that it is me, especially at work and bars/clubs/restaurants. All I have to say is keep your head STRONG. Understand that this is a long battle and we will overcome this horrible fight!
If any of you are feeling down or suicidal, PLEASE reach out to me. I have felt feelings of doom lately as well as dark thoughts. I understand and I am here for you all.
Best of luck to you all!
Hopeful12345, when do I take the probiotics? I feEl like every time I do the Oxy powder, it gets rid of the little good critters. Not sure how true that is. I just need your advice again! I just bought some more brown rice powder. I did buy some max amino caps from the vitamin store which had the same 20 amino acids in it. No improvements yet, but I'm staying HOPEFUL!! :)
To withdrawnupnorth, stay positive. Don't give up ! You got this. I understand the hard struggle that this is. It literally is a horrible battle, but you will come up on top. Follow the leaky gut diet if the candida diet isn't working. I'm really going crazy because I miss bread, chips, pasta, ALL CARBS LOL ! Just stay with it. We got this!
Have a good weekend everyone!
Hey justincase_25, I usually take probiotics on an empty stomach (usually first thing in the morning) so that they face no competition from food. I never took them at the same time as antifungals (usually took them at least 3-4 hours apart) because they kill good bacteria as well as bad. I am not aware of any issue with taking probiotics as the same time as Oxy Powder, because Oxy Powder is really just magnesium and oxygen.
Hey to you all and Happy Holidays from Orlando, the city of dreams!
I will say, this PATM thing is getting on my last nerve. It seems to be getting worse and not better. I have run out of Candida Cleanse by Purely Holistic and Oxy Powder. As soon as I get paid, those will be on my things to buy first list. My diet is currently horrible: Lots of pastas, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, ham, turkey. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE FOODS.
I started the candida diet back two days ago, and I feel okay. Nothing different. I do have strep throat....went to the doctor on Monday, and she told me to take antibiotics. I'm taking amoxicillin, but I am scared. Should I continue it or no? My throat still has not improved, so I'm drinking aloe vera organic juice from Vitamin Shoppe and lots of water, green tea, and lemon juice. Anyone else have chronic sinusitis? My PCP diagnosed me with that 3 years ago...must be tied to all of this.
Has anyone ever been tested for celiac disease? Our symptoms are similar to people with that disease excluding the patm part. Patm reactions; I believe that is the candida albicans reeking havoc in our bloodstream.
Additionally, I got strep throat after drinking Patron on a wild night out.....I shouldn't have done it... but I am 25 and stupid ahaha ! I have noticed that when I do drink alcohol, not even a lot, I get sick instead of a hangover. I either get a sinus infection or strep throat. This is my third time this year with strep throat and it is no fun.
No more alcohol for me. No more pot smoking. No more eating horrible. Anybody have any other cleanses that they would recommend with the Oxy Powder? Anything to add or recommend, please comment below.
Thanks and Happy Holidays everyone!
