I don’t have any concrete information about what was said – I was told that a colleague (who had candida) of a friend say that it can “wreak havoc on your body” so I’m afraid its only hearsay but I can ask further what was meant and will get back to you.
“Hearsay” isn’t worth the time it takes to listen to it if you ask me. I’m assuming you wouldn’t depend on hearsay over scientific research, right?
In the meantime if it is the toxins that are affecting me ? Why am I so much more sensitive to them, is it because there is so much toxicity being killed off (ie still alot of candida there)
Understand that it’s not so much the toxins as the amount of toxins that’s causing all the symptoms. There are enough toxins expelled by a Candida overgrowth to damage a person’s liver in some cases.
I have been to a kineasologist who has tested me to be allergic to molds, so what are the major foods that I should avoid, I am careful with eating only the freshest foods etc and have cut out nut butters, what about Tahini
If I’m correct, Tahini is only lightly roasted most of the time, so the seeds may still contain mold when the sesame seeds are ground into the paste.
and pumpkin seed butter and are organic herbal teas okay?
I would leave all forms of pumpkin seeds alone, especially if you’re allergic to mold. Organic herbal teas, hopefully do not contain mold. But anytime we drink these we have no choice but to trust the companies that make it.
She also said that I am okay for dairy and gluten so have started to include small amounts of these back in, greek yoghurt/butter
Ok for dairy and gluten? Does she even know that you have a Candida overgrowth? It sure doesn’t sound like it. If you add butter and gluten products, the Candida is going to feed on both, but it’s up to you.
small amounts of cheddar.
Cheddar, seriously? I wouldn’t think that a kineasologist is normally seen as a Candida specialist. Have you questioned her on her experience with a Candida infestation? I’m sure I’d have a page full of questions to ask her before I trusted her with my health in this situation.
