Like I mentioned, I’m not sure that candida is my problem. I’ve been tested for parasites, and those results have all been negative. I believe my leaky gut was caused by NSAID abuse since that’s when I began to notice symptoms, not from candida. If I have candida, I believe it’s a result of the leaky gut, not the other way around.
I should also reiterate; I am NOT eating grains of any kind. No rice, wheat, oats, spelt, anything like that. I’m following a leaky gut diet, not a candida diet, which suggests fructose to help heal the lining of the gut.
I just wanted to know whether die-off like symptoms were possible while healing leaky gut, not exactly die-off itself. If interested, here is the source I saw that claimed that something like that could happen: http://www.brighterdayfoods.com/PDFDocs/d/DR3C27M98FWC9G33VJ916NSGP7RTAG86.PDF
