Yes, there is a lot of crap on the web, sometimes even in this forum. If you’re going to invest significant energy in a battle against candida, why not learn from the pioneer MDs that spent decades treating people for it and wrote about it? Orian Truss MD, John Trowbridge MD, and William Crook MD all have books that are pretty cheap to buy.
Food sensitivities are common for candida sufferers. Candida toxins can cause inflammation, opening up space between cells of the intestinal lining and allowing undigested food particles to pass through. The immune system encounters these particles and gets pissed off. Candida will also grow hyphae and dig into your tissues if it’s not getting enough nutrients, which is another way undigested food particles can get into your system and cause an immune response. This is the kind of stuff you’d learn in the books, by the way.
I appreciate this perspective, thank you.
There is definitly alot of reading to do, since everyone claims their source of info is the authority on candida,and they all do not say the same thing.
Buying books is not an option right now,but free info on the web with little incentive to make money off me is attractive.
I try to only use sources that dont have alot to gain from my attention to them.
Some of your advised reading has info on the web, for that I am very grateful.
I also look for patterns in other people’s experiences.
I notice that almost everyone that eats low-carb since having candida stays low carb….or else!
This is both horrifying and repulsive to me.
I have never been more unhappy and unhealthy than when I was low-carb,thinking I was helping my family’s diabetes.
Turns out, once I took one family member off a lowcarb diet and put her on a balanced, high carb diet, she went off shots and now only needs the lowest dose glypozide to maintain.
Doctor thinks she can be off that soon, too,if she wants to .
I have a feeling this is going to be alot of experimenting.
