Hi there helmax,
I stand to be corrected, but after some research, I’ve found that most literature out there declares Rutabaga to cause an INCREASE in candida, and not a decrease. So perhaps what you experienced was not a die off but a sudden surge! As I say, I stand to be corrected. It seems to be one of those things where dieticians and homeopaths are split in their opinion. Personally, if there’s a split, I ain’t taking it! lol.. I had a similar experience without actually passing out, when I fell off my candida diet bus, and ate a chinese bowtie (pastry smothered in syrup) Yep. I know. I crashed – awful headaches, full-on asthma attack, couldn’t think straight etc etc. I won’t be doing that again any time soon. So yeah, I’ll be staying away from Rutabaga unless there’s very clear evidence to the contrary.
