I am 45 years old, I have always been in good shape exercised regularly, and eat some what healthy. I had a baby 3 years ago and have been unable to lose the belly fat. I have never had wash board abs but never this bad. I know hormones play a big factor in this. But whenever I eat Greek yogurt which I love I break out in a red itchy rash along my spine and a patch on the back of my neck. I went off of the yogurt and it did dissipate. I then read somewhere about apple cider vinegar and it's great health benefits so I started with 2 table spoons a day. It stopped my cravings ASAP. I fell in love, except for the red itchy rash that has started crawling up my spine! I do think this is a reaction to live cultures, and is candida die off. I just read your blog on herximier reaction and bought all suggested and bought probiotic. My question is is this candida die off and can I take probiotic with regimen suggested to get rid of candida die off or will that be working against each other? I also will stop taking acv today. My thoughts are if I clean up my gut I don't have to take acv on a regular basis. I also started using coconut oil for cooking, and oregano oil. Maybe too much at one time. Please suggest baby step regimen or should I just go commando! Thank you for your time and attention.
