I get it when someone has a SAD diet (standard american diet) and they suffer after antibiotics.
I see the cause and effect.
None of this is making sense to me as to why I should get hit so hard lately
( my diet is entirely fruits and veggies and greens, almost no overt fats, occasional quinoa and potatoes and rice,beans, lots of garlic and fresh herbs).
So xmas I have a few cookies and a few days later after one banana I feel like im dying and my thoughts are morbid and scary. Like the worst hangover ever. Still drunk. Vision blurry.
After all my reading, im beginning to understand that there is no cure.
This is the way life is going to be from now on.
Is this accurate?
Does anyone get back to normal?
Can anyone go back to eating occasional cookies and fruit again without a reaction?
I thought candida was something that was found normally in everyone’s body, and that in our case there is an imbalance and an over-growth. That its OK to have some candida in there.
Why does it keep getting out of control?
Is the candida diet FOREVER?
The diet you describe isn’t an anticandida diet. A healthy diet isn’t necessary an anticandida diet. Chronic mucosal yeast overgrowth is associated to immune deficiencies. What are you doing to identify why your immune system is allowing yeast colonization on your tissues ??
A yeast overgrowth is absolutely curable, at least you have an intrinsic immune defect that impedes it. Mostly, the immune deficiency candida sufferers have is acquired and reversible.
Your actual diet won’t favor your progress.
The web is FULL of myths about this syndrome. I will say that most of the information you find in candida dedicated websites is wrong. It doesn’t help those who needs to find a path to be candida free.
