I live with my wife and 3 year old daughter. We also had to family guests staying with us for 3 weeks at our house. Everyone was sick over the last 4 weeks. Some of them were sick for the entire 4 weeks, but I am the only one that did not get sick with the cold, flu or whatever it is they have.
I’m not sure if it’s the large amount of veges, probiotics or exactly what, but this diet is apparently very good for the immune system. My daughter is like any other kid bringing home germs with her constantly and I would almost never escape the wrath of her germs prior to starting this diet.
I will respond your post because it is interesting for all candida sufferers.
It has an explanation. Candida sufferers are immune unbalanced. They are overactive in a Th2 mode. Th2, also called humoral immunity is the antibody response to any offender that provoke this response. Common cold is defended by antibodies. It means you are hyperactive creating antibodies to anything that touch your body. You have a boosted Th2 immune defense. However, you are depressed in the Th1 department ( cell-mediated immunity ) This is the immune response that defends us of anything that penetrates our cells such as candida albicans. This is why you don’t get sick with extracellular offenders.
Moreover, a diet low in refined carbohydrates and sugar also help to boost the immunity as well as the supplements you take.
I hope this help to know the reasons.
