Hello Kim ! My name is Michele J I live in Quebec Canada. I haven’t been well in the last year and worst this summer with a lot of candida symptoms. I have taken online tests and I always score for severe candida. I have been to a doctor, naturopath, and homeopath with no diagnosis. The homeopathy helped somewhat with symptoms but my chronic sore tonsils and a few white ulcers (which started in July) still remain. Someone suggested to get a Live Blood Analysis done from one of the best (Ted Aloisio). He diagnosed severe candida immediately.
I have been off gluten and cow dairy for 8 years and I eat very well. I eat 95% fresh and organic fruits, veges, nuts, seeds grain and proteins (eggs,fish and meat). I’m a bit discouraged of having candida as i think i’m basically eating all the right things. On the other hand I have had alot stress in the last 18 months (mom with alzheimers) and no time to exercise or get fresh air. I’ve also always been prone to adrenal fatigue…
I have taken some time to read everything I could put my hands on regarding where to start and what I can eat in phase-1. Two weeks ago, I have started on the Lisa Richards chart of foods to avoid/aloud. I am also taking quality probiotics from Metagenics Canada, Olive leaf, pau d’arco, quality digestive enzymes and drinking raw unpasturized apple cider vinegar. Oh and also, swallowing quality coconut oil. I just also ordered a fungicide kit from Renew Life.
There are a few things I’m uncertain about though, as after 2 weeks on the diet and supplements, I haven’t had any “die-off”… plus, sometimes my throat still acts up which makes me wonder if I’m making mistakes !?
Are the following foods (which are supposedly “permitted in phase 1) aloud in “large frequent” quantities ?
– almond butter
– olives (in water)
– apple cider vinigar (which I purposely drink)
– cocnut oil (which I purposely drink)
– reishi and maitake muchrooms ?????
Are the following aloud in phase 1 :
– unsweetened coconut milk
– quinoa flour
– almond flour
– coconut flour
– buckwheat flour
– tapioca starch
– amarant starch
– baking powder
– organic tomatoes, organic tomato juice (only ingredient)
– green beans, snow peas
– raw unpasturized sauercraut
– wild game
– homemade mayonnaise (with only eggs,oil and fresh herbs)
– paleo recipes (made with aloud selected flours)
thanks, Michele 😀
