Your Questions Answered: Anise Seeds, Inositol In CanXida Rebuild, Can GI Issues Cause Sinus Infections

Question: 1) What would you advice using anise seeds as thee? For example 200 ml hot water with 1 teaspoon three times daily? 2) What would you advise using crushed anise seeds in food? Like for example 1 tablespoon three times daily?

Anise seeds can be great for your health, especially if you are looking for improving your digestion, promoting weight loss, and diabetes control. If you plan to use whole anise seeds, boil water and allow the seeds to brew for 2 to 3 minutes. Then, close the lid. Strain after 5 minutes and drink. This works the best when you consume it the first thing in the morning. If you are having the brewed seeds with meals, have them before breakfast, lunch, and dinner, three times a day. Additionally, you can also use the seeds in the same way after a heavy meal to avoid bloating and indigestion. If it is not convenient for you to brew the seeds and drink the liquid, like when you are outside during the daytime, you can use crushed anise seeds. You can also sprinkle some crushed seeds or Anise powder on your coffee or even sandwich and salad if you are outside. For cooking purposes, you can use whole or ground Anise seeds.

You can add them to the fruit fillings for pies, dough for baked goods, and even ground meat before baking. You can use a pinch of crushed seeds to flavor smoothies or drinks like hot chocolate. If you like pickles, whole or crushed anise seeds can be added to it during preparation. You can use either whole seeds or crushed seeds thrice a day. You can include one tablespoon twice or thrice a day. The twice-a-day dosage works well for diabetic control, and weight loss. If your digestion is weak or if you are having frequent bloating, or constipation, you can use it thrice a day. It will add a sweet and mildly spicy tinge to your dishes and make them more aromatic and flavorful.

Question: I am wondering why your Rebuild supplement includes inositol since it appears that it can feed Candida. I have to avoid FOS.

Inositol is added to the CanXida Rebuild supplement with the purpose of increasing the overall effectiveness of the product. It does appear to feed candida when used in a very high amount. However, the Inositol content in the Rebuild supplement is very low. So, even if you need to avoid Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), you do not have to worry about the Inositol in Rebuild supplement worsening your symptoms of candida. On the contrary, Inositol would offer other benefits that would surely outweigh the minimal risks by promoting blood sugar control and improving weight loss and metabolism. Inositol is basically a carbocyclic sugar that is found in abundance in our brain. It also plays a key role in mediating the mechanisms involved in sending signals in our body to and from various organs. This can help to regulate the secretion of a variety of hormones, as well as growth factors and neurotransmitters.

It can also improve the osmoregulation of your body, which means it would help to maintain a normal fluid and electrolyte balance in the blood and other tissues and fluids. Moreover, Inositol also has the ability to improve the immunological functions and strengthen your body’s defenses against disease-causing agents. These benefits will help you derive the expected benefits in terms of reduced risk of fungal infections and other health issues like diabetes, obesity, poor digestion, and weak immunity. So, you need not worry about the presence of Inositol in the CanXida Rebuild supplement. In case you notice any signs of fungal infection or if the supplement makes your existing symptoms worse, you may stop using it for a few days and then, restart it in a lower dose. You can stop using it if the symptoms appear or continue to become worse after reintroducing it.

Question:I’m currently a 21 year old kid and have been suffering with GI issues for 2 years now. I had sinus surgery in Feb 2020 for reoccurring sinus issues. Constantly was on antibiotics and infections were not going away. After surgery I woke up and couldn’t urinate. They put a catheter and ever since then my pelvic floor has been extremely work with no responding to therapy or any Botox or any steroid injections. August of that year I ate some spicy chicken out with friends and my GI went off the rails. I’ve seen so many gastros been through so much testing even sibo, candida and just everything you can think of. I’ve struggled to find a steady diet other then lean meats such as veal, chicken or Turkey plus Swiss chard and sprouted gluten free oatmeal. I was recently told and informed from another naturopath that my main source of my issue is a dental infection that stemmed from years of being untreated that spread all over. My issue now is having bowel movements. This is a one in a million but I have a stool test that I recently did if maybe you can take a look at it and maybe by some chance help me pick a diet or things to eat for these strains of bacteria. To maybe reduce some of my symptoms. I have tremendous gas that I am completely unable to pass standing. Only way is a fetal position with my legs to my chest. Hoping maybe God can send some relief my way.

The symptoms you are having now are very common in young people of your age. So, you need not feel too anxious about it. Yes, a change in your diet will help you in a big way to improve your digestion. My advice is to first try the elimination diet. For this, you will have to maintain a diary of the foods you eat on a daily basis. Make a note of everything you eat in this diary, even if it is a small bite of fruit. Then, start with eating only those foods that you are sure will not cause any symptoms. You can include vegetables like green vegetables, potato, tomato, capsicum, and broccoli in your first week’s diet. Also, add fruits like berries, papaya, and melons. Melons and papayas have a high water and fiber content, respectively. So, that will help you with your bowel movement and reduce gas and constipation. Berries have antioxidants and can promote detox.

Drink at least 2 liters of water every day. Continue the same diet for 2 weeks and notice the change in your symptoms. Then, every week, add 2 or 3 food items to your diet to see whether your symptoms become worse or better. Use this method to identify the foods that are healthy or unhealthy for your specific symptoms and go on adding healthy foods to your meals while avoiding those that aggravate your symptoms.  Check this pdf Sorry about getting the diagnosis at present. Avoid stressing yourself as this would only make your symptoms worse. Remember that every person’s body reacts in a unique way to different foods. Once you have identified the foods that are good for your digestion and overall health, you will be able to overcome your symptoms very easily. Just stick to the same diet later to restore healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.
