Since you can’t afford supplements, you’re simply going to have to become stricter with your diet. I’m going to give you some suggestions that should eventually help the pain as well as save you some of the food stamps that you’re spending on needless foods.
1) Instead of eating so many raw vegetables, start very lightly steaming them, not boiling in water, but just enough steaming to start the breakdown of the fibers in the vegetables. Eat fresh or frozen green vegetables, organic when possible.
2) Cut out the tomato soup, if you can afford organic tomato soup you can probably afford organic green vegetable soup. Read the labels and make sure that it contains no fruits. Cut out the tomato as well and spend those food stamps on an extra avocado now and then.
3) Stop eating the almonds.
4) The herbal teas aren’t going to help cure your infestation. Switch to water and drink it with every meal as well as in-between. Get used to the taste of water, not only will it help to cleanse your body, but it’ll save you money. Most teas, herbal included, contain mold and this can cause the Candida infestation to grow worse. I’m assuming you’re not drinking coffee or any other caffeine products.
5) Stop drinking the almond milk, save your food stamps for additional avocados and fresh vegetables, organic when possible.
6) To be honest, ginger isn’t going to cure your infestation either. Again, save your money for organic vegetables. Also try purchasing more greens such as kale, spinach, turnip greens, etc.
7) Rutabagas are fairly cheap. Purchase one of these and slice it in round quarter- inch slices. Rub olive oil and both sides and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once.
IMPORTANT: If you have a fairly bad Candida albicans infestation, be careful with the amount you eat the first few times you try it. Eat only one slice the first time if it’s a large rutabaga, two slices if it’s small. Be prepared for die-off symptoms if your Candida is bad because rutabagas are a very strong antifungal. If you will continue to eat these on a regular basis, along with onions, garlic, and leeks, you may be able to get by without purchasing antifungal products.
8) If you’re using regular table salt, check the label; if it contains Dextrose (a simple sugar), then it’s feeding the Candida and your treatment will be useless. Look for brands or types in the store which do not contain Dextrose. Let me know if you can’t find these.
9) Instead of purchasing tilapia, buy sardines. They’re just as healthy for you, cheaper, and they contain very small levels of mercury, if any at all, because they’re very young fish and have not had time to accumulate large quantities of mercury the way larger and older fish have.
10) You’re going to eventually need to purchase a kefir starter kit and hopefully a probiotic before you can cure the infestation completely. Perhaps you can start planning on how you can save money to purchase these when the time comes, that is, if the food stamps do not cover the cost.
Do you know how you contracted the Candida infestation?
