You have a mistake. A very restrictive diet isn’t the solution to this syndrome. You will complicate it more. I believe I have some experience to say it.
And I believe I have some experience as well to say that we do not “have a mistake” and that a strict diet is absolutely necessary as part of the entire protocol of curing a Candida infestation. The people in the following thread, I believe, would agree with me.
Testimonies to the Diet and Protocol
The problem with a very restrictive diet for any purpose or condition is that many people are not likely going to stick to it for long or 100% if it limits them too much. While there may be people that have stuck with it and seen results, you are not talking about how many people started it and failed (by cheating even once). And then they did things on their own or chose a different diet. Testimonies are great but how many salesmen are going to post bad testimonies about their products and talk about the people that did not like a particular product or the product did not work for them. None. Kind of like a resume. Who is dumb enough to tell about bad work experiences or reviews?
Correct me if I am wrong but someone on here said that the diet was not intended for long term use. Something about it not being healthy. I would characterize something like a strict diet as a “guide” rather than a plan. You said yourself that you pulled the diet from the site because of complaints or people not in agreement with its contents. I in fact have not even seen it. I do not need to in order to realize that people are likely to fail if given few options for what to eat. Or if they have to turn their lives completely upside down. Given so many questions here go answered by “nobody can know that for sure”, I can only assume any diet is speculation as well.
You are clear about many things you have said. The anticandida diet isn’t a healthy diet. It has been said by the same Dr who created it. I own every candida book ( about CRC ) you can find, most of them written by MDs. The warning about the diet is explained in all of them.
In fact, the diet is sequential. It means by steps. I find the diet Able suggests tolerable. I have followed a more restrictive than it for months in an intent to end with it at all.
The problem isn’t the diet but what is going to go systemic to eradicate the yeast that have infected the cells. A diet such as what Able suggest, and many others, will take you to a point where you don’t feel symptoms, but you need to continue it because if you release it, the infection is back. The reason is the epithelial cells are infected. Reducing the colonies living on the mucus layer is a big part of the battle but no a cure.
Experienced pioneer MDs treating this syndrome adviced a systemic and a non-absorbed antifungal drug that be effective against the species is affecting you. The infection that is on the intestinal walls must be eradicated to eliminate it. It is that one what causes inflammation and leaky gut. When the intestinal walls are inflammated as a result of an infection, there are cell gaps that allow undigested food proteins to cross to the blood and trigger an antibody.
People need education about it. I agree these knowledge aren’t an easy finding in the web. It has cost me 4 years and hundreds of hours of reading and research. I have keep personal contact with some yeast specialists who recognize CRC.
