I would never be able to keep a diet like that not in the current position im in, even if i were, i would probably fall short either way because of my cravings……….. there has to be another reasonable way.
Can i not just take extra probiotics and anti-fungals(natural and prescribed) to get rid of it, while still eating the same foods, but i will limit those foods to a minimum if anything. I couldn’t see myself not eating some of those restricted foods at all……. but again i wouldnt be able to keep a diet like that, whether it be a month, a year or my whole life.
EDIT: Also I think SIBO(Small intestine bacteria overgrowth) and candidiasis are one in the same, one leads to the other basically. So i think I would aslo have to keep a SIBO diet, which is even more ridiculous.
Unfortunately, this diet isn’t a choice, at least for me…it’s the last hope to getting healthy…I’m out of other options, doctors can’t help me, medicine can’t help me, so what should I do? I tried taking antifungals and probiotics with “normal” diet, and it didn’t work…I’m not saying that in your case it couldn’t work, maybe it would, because everyone’s different and I don’t know how long you’ve had an infection and where it’s located…I’ve had vaginal candida for 6 years now…continually…diflucan doesn’t help…I’ve been on the diet hundreds of times, and I’m from a country which isn’t nearly as rich as the States…and I order my supplements from the States…so go figure…With the money I spent on my treatment I could’ve bought a car, or went on a luxurious vacation, but I didn’t have a choice really.
My tips regarding the budget:
– buy seasonal vegetables – it’s cheaper
– don’t eat meat/fish every day – eggs are the cheaper replacement
– plan your budget ahead – see which supplements are essential and buy those, skip other supplements (currently I’m on SF722, probiotics, coconut oil & vaginal probiotics, I don’t have the budget for anything else)
– when I’m on the diet I save money on things like alcohol/going out/ordering in/candies etc…because you make all of your food at home, you won’t spend any money outside, maybe only on salad/water/tea
– like raster said, simple life 🙂 unfortunately i can’t go on fancy vacations or buy a car, but I’m aware I’m doing all of this for my health, and my health is my priority
