I’ve been on the Candida diet for over a year, it’s likely my problem is heavy metal toxicity. I’m trying to focus on healing my gut, while chelating some toxins through the GAPS diet. I introduced raw honey in ginger tea about 10 days ago. Surprise! my body can’t handel it, it causes inflammation in my toes. So, I followed the recommendation of someone on the GAPS forum to make applesauce and have that instead of honey. I tried that yesterday and this morning I woke up with irritated taste buds.
In the past I’ve asked this forum why you can’t go back to a normal diet once you’ve been on a Candida diet. The response I got was that the Candida has mutated and is stronger. I don’t think that’s the case. If it were, I would be having Candida symptoms not food intolerance symptoms. right?
I would like to know how I can exit this diet? Does anyone know? I would have certainly approached it with caution a year ago if I had known what it was going to do to me. My Candida symptoms are gone, but I can’t eat anything except meat.
Will I need to eat a Candida diet for the rest of my life? If so, new people should be warned.
I would pursue the heavy metals issue, specifically mercury. Google Andy Cutler and check out his books. I believe the link between mercury and candida is extremely overlooked. Seemingly all mercury poisoned people have yeast issues and from what I have read their yeast issues clear up after properly chelating. My advice is to browse the frequent, low dose chelation board at yahoo and come to your own conclusion.
