He's treating us like the loser he got drunk and had a meaningful conversation with at a party. We want to publicly acknowledge one another now but he wont give us the time of day until the next party.Use code "fl3x10" to get a free shirt with your purchase at Mind and Muscle

You have a hard buy in with this due to your mystery problem.
It's a 30 day elimination to start. Once it's 30 days, see how you look feel and perform. If good, add back in some berries...or find yourself some grass fed hydrolyzed isolate...it's a rough buy in man but the 30days strict will do well

Hey Midwest, not sure if you are interested but I ran a fungal / candida cleanse while I did my trial with removing gluten and adding in probiotics. I saw really good results after about a week on the plan with the cleanse as far as bloating and gas was concerned. Anyway, just something to give some thought to

Also, still haven't heard from my doc...10 days. Not cool. They randomly closed yesterday, I guess, because it was answering machine all day long. I just called and left a message this morning, but I'll be calling again, this afternoon. I'm never a dick about it, but the brain fog has been setting back in and this weekend I had some minor depression; nothing that was bad at all, really, just a lack of a drive to do anything (ya know, being fat and all...lol).
The brain fog really makes me curious if there's somehow a dopamine depletion going on (thus explaining the elevated prolactin levels, too).
I'm in a great mood right now, though, because I just had some Focus XT. And I just got back from chem class and my professor (pretty awesome to have a guy with a doctorate in chemistry teaching you at a community college) was chucking superballs off the walls and they were hitting students lol.

So, doc's office called me back...and he is out all week. Yup.
He is at a conference somewhere and won't be back until next week. The girls there are really good (I see them as much or more than my friends) and one of them said she already passed my info/note along to him. I don't care if I can't see him, I want him to either agree that I need the abdominal scan and start the paperwork for it or at least sign off on the tests I wanted done, as well, so I can do SOMETHING. I absolutely loathe wasting time and I already felt the brain fog and minor depression over the weekend for a lack of action. I grow extremely tired of dieting and eating healthy, along with everything else, and only watching myself fall further and further out of shape. As is pretty obvious, I am not at all happy, right now.

Dang man, sounds like life if sucking bug time ATM. Head up bro. You're on the right track! Now it's just gonna take time.

In my case, I didn't have anything on my eye but I did have other symptoms that after researching seemed to the the result of a candida overload. Once I did the diet and the cleanse I felt so much better, but I will worn you. I did **** mud for a couple days, it was coming out black and sludge like haha. But after about two weeks things started to get better and I noticed my bloat going down and I usually am pretty gassy but it all went away. I had more energy and felt like I could think clearer, how you mentioned the fog. One thing about Candida and yeast is that candida and yeast feed off of dying yeast so it takes a long time to get it fully out of your system but it sounds like you are in this for the long haul.
Also you will have dye off which can cause a number of things and they suck, but it goes away.
I have no affiliation to this site I am posting, but it just gives you an idea of what symptoms you might get from die off and you can google away also

Thanks for the info, man.
Do you know what the ingredient profile on that product you first listed is? On Amazon, it doesn't list anything. More than anything, I wanted to see if there was anything comparable Nutra or anywhere else had.

I'll do a weigh-in, tomorrow, just to see if there's any change. I doubt it and don't expect it from the GF issue this early on, but I've been restricting cals pretty heavily.
One of the girls in the office said they'd be open til 3, yesterday, so to call and get an appt before they closed up. I decided to drive over there, instead. I was there at 2:30 and they were locked up. I called the office and someone picked up in back, but when I told them I was out front she reiterated that they were closed. Needless to say I was beyond pissed off.
I called, today, and have an appointment for next Wednesday afternoon. I'll be there on Monday, though, to drop off the letter I'd already written and ask him to sign off on tests beforehand. Nothing like 2+ weeks passing when he hasn't talked to who he said he would.
In the big scheme of things, I stay positive, but last night was a bad night for me. It's certainly hard to stay up when everyone doesn't have the same sense of urgency that I do. It just sucks losing more days and weeks and months of my life; time that I could be fixing myself.

I have a bottle still, I do a cleanse about every 6 months for a month. Between the ex and myself we have run about 5 different cleanses and had the best success by a long stretch with this one. She had tinea versicolor and had to adhere to a pretty much gluten free lifestyle to keep it from popping up.
Here is the break down
Fungal Defense Herbal Balance blend 475mg
Olive Leaf extract
Cinnamon Bark Powder
Fungal Defense Enzyme Balance 233mg
Protease 20,000 HUT
Cllulase 20,000 CU
Fungal Defense Living Herbal Proten-Zyme 125mg
Garlic Juice, Yucca Juice
Hope that helps man
