Hi, Able! Thanks for the reply.
May I ask why [you are skeptical]?
Sure. Science isn’t on your side. That right there is enough to be skeptical. It’s not against the Candida diet, but it sure as hell isn’t supporting it. If all the empirical evidence were behind the diet, it would move from alternative medicine to just medicine, and I probably would have heard about it from my doctor. Of course, there’s all sorts of reasons why there could be little good evidence for its truth. Gathering good evidence in this case seems difficult, and to conduct a study would be an enormous undertaking. But this very website also has some things that have made me skeptical. The spittle test, for example, sounded bizarre and useless, and upon further investigation, I found that it is indeed bizarre and useless. Considering that people will be coming to an alternative medicine website (already skeptical) and then read something very strange (skeptical) which upon a small amount of investigation turns out to be false (very skeptical), I would imagine you would be used to my viewpoint. 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.
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. 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.
That may be a false assumption on your part. The success of the treatment depends completely on you and your dedication, not on the treatment itself as it does work.
Burping all the day long is not a pleasant experience. I am absolutely convinced that I have sufficient motivation to not stray from the diet. When I want to do something I do it.
Pardon me, a quack? You think that a Candida diet may all be a “quack”? Can you explain that please?
Methinks my answer to your previous question is sufficient, no?
Thank you for your time and the link.
Also, I have a couple questions I haven’t been able to find the answers to. If the bacteria feeds on carbohydrates, then not eating sugars and starches makes sense to me. But why during the cleanse period can one not eat meat or eggs? What is in those to feed the bacteria? Surely those starve them just as much as the vegetables?
Also, Kim Chi is on the list of acceptable foods for the cleanse period, yet it is always made with sugar or fruit juice. How is this acceptable?
