I thank you for your opinion, like I said Candida affects everyone differently, and this works great for me :). I have Candida die-off symptoms from my diet alone which has been an achievement for me after trying many anti-fungals without sticking to a good diet plan in the past.
Yes Amaranth contains starch. I rotate what I eat, so the recipe I use for organic amaranth flour made pancakes I eat about 1-2 times a week and it does not hinder my progress. The only other grains I do eat is Quinoa and Buckwheat(Kasha).
Steamed or boiled carrots, though starchy are also very beneficial for digestive health. They are loaded with vitamin A, beta-carotene which is a powerful anti-oxidant. Raw carrots are difficult to break down with Candida, it’s eating them in moderation and how you prepare them.
Some individuals have some level of constipation with Candida. Beet and carrot juice 1:1 ratio is a great way to lessen that symptom! Snow peas I eat cooked only, and like I said I do not eat my protein digested foods with my carbohydrate digested foods to ensure better digestion.
The cranberry juice I’m referring to can only be purchased at health food stores. I drink it about 3-4 times a week with water and even some lemon juice on an empty stomach, usually in the morning about 30 minutes before breakfast. It might not work so well for you (thought I doubt you have tried the kind I am referring to) but it works great for me.
Able, some people do not tolerate certain foods with Candida, whether they are Anti-Candida or not. A good test to have done is a food allergy test (ELISA/ACT). http://www.elisaact.com/test/nonhc/clinical-successes.asp
The shortened list I provided you with is an anti-candida diet that I follow, with the help of my Naturopath.
I also get all my supplements and groceries at the local Health Food Store Goodness Me! Again that’s just me.
If you enjoy the flavour of food, you salivate more and therefore release more digestive enzymes. It’s an erroneous belief that you have to sacrifice and suffer to feel well. I actually enjoy cooking something that makes me feel better, and I believe that’s what has made me progress to better health more quickly.
I’m just sharing my experiences because I know how awful it is trying to figure out what you can and can’t eat, and I find I’m quite passionate about it. I like to share my experiences and learn those of others too. This works for my unique case of Candida, and everyone’s on here to find out what works for their own unique case.
And now may I ask, do you have your Candida under control Able? Or have you gotten rid of it altogether? And if so please share.
