Sure. Science isn’t on your side.
And the fact that people with a Candida overgrowth who follow the forum’s protocol begin to get better than they’ve been in years in most cases and see a decrease their symptoms isn’t science. So it’s all probably just a coincidence.
Also, I would have that spittle thing taken down. Providing nonsense to sincere people is wrong, and if this diet really works, only serves to turn away skeptics like me, and so helps no one.
I don’t know where you read that, but if it was on the website instead of the forum, please be aware that the members have nothing to do with the website content, only the forum. At any rate, you’ll learn more ‘truths’ by sticking to the forum. The following was posted over five months ago on the forum.
Also, the way you lot talk about leaky gut syndrome with such certainty, when from my research of ten minutes the best you can say is that maybe it exists.
You’re totally missing the point; the point is that members experience serious symptoms which they refer to as “leaky gut” (whether it’s scientifically correct or not) which are improved by following the protocol.
This also appears to be the consensus of scientists, who have far more knowledge and have invested far more time than I have, and whom I tend to side with for this reason.
I wonder how many of those scientists have experienced a few years of a Candida overgrowth and a gut that leaks food into the bloodstream as well as the experience of going to doctor after doctor finding no possibility of a cure. I believe the following came from your first post, “I have been seeing a doctor for the past year and a half, and he has been of little use.” I hope you don’t think that your doctor is the only one who proved to be completely useless in this situation.
I guess I can’t help but wonder why you’re not trying to locate a better, different doctor; I would guess that, according to your own words, you’d at least be much closer to ‘science’ in one of their offices than you are here on the forum.
Yes, we have some problems in Western medicine.
With what some of the members here on the forum have been through with Western doctors, I’m fairly sure most of them will agree that, what we have is not ‘some’ problems, but a hell of a lot of problems in Western medicine.
I am interested in doing the cleanse bit of it, but I’m having difficulty understanding why meat and eggs aren’t on the list of acceptable foods.
These aren’t listed as foods to be eaten during the cleanse because it’s not a diet, but rather a detox method in that it’s supposed to remove as many toxins as possible before starting the actual diet. The object of any food or drink that’s allowed during that time is meant to do the same thing, remove toxins. Animal products are not capable of doing this, in fact, if anything; they would only add more toxins to the mix.
For example, ammonia is a byproduct that’s formed by the breakdown of animal proteins and is released into the body during the digestion process. This of course is an additional toxin which the liver and kidneys will have to work to remove.
Parasites such as Candida albicans excrete ammonia as well as other toxic chemicals into the body on a daily basis. This alone supplies enough ammonia to the body to keep the liver and kidneys in a constant state of toxic overload. This is also why so many Candida sufferers complain about the smell of ammonia on their breath. You can see how adding meat to the cleanse or diet either one would be detrimental to any Candida treatment.
By the way, FYI, the cleanse isn’t absolutely necessary but is definitely recommended for getting a head start on the treatment; but again, not absolutely necessary. We also have a slightly easier and safer cleanse on the forum if you’re interested.
