Nah, I also acknowledge that my food obsession is part of what got me here and the only way to stay out is to stay away from the garbage for life (obviously, as Able says, with exceptions…just that junk should not be the rule, no sugar desserts every night and so on).
I would like to know from where your ignorant statement that junk food causes candida is coming from??
I guess this is in reference to your other post in this thread. Quote: “As an open forum, we should be able to voice anything with
respect and consideration.”
At any rate, Alex’s exact words were, “food obsession is part of what got me here”

Latent: dormant or undeveloped but able to develop normally under suitable conditions.
In my experience with Candida, and apparently Alex’s as well, food was the ‘suitable condition’ which caused the Candida to develop and become a fungal infestation. I’ve mentioned to you before that when I contracted the infestation I had not been given antibiotics in over ten years, yet when I went on an all fruit diet I suddenly developed the overwhelming symptoms of a Candida infestation. So I had Candida in my body but they were dormant for ten years at least, and I may have lived the rest of my life never having experienced a Candida infestation, but food, in my case in the form of fruit, was the culprit which actually brought on the fungal infestation. The point is, doesn’t it appear that we have enough debates on the forum which may actually have the potential of helping someone without adding semantics to the list?
You are convinced that fruits caused your infection, and I am convinced they don’t. So, we will never agree with it.
What chock me is the time you have been posting and learning about this syndrome and still you think this way.
I am pretty sure the world population have more addicts to fruits than what you ever was that don’t show a single symptom of CRC. Again, CRC isn’t caused by dietary habits but by immunologic problems that may be linked to many things as you probably already know.
Fruits weren’t the cause of your infection but immune fails linked to your own immune system that allowed it in the same way it happened to me and everybody who contracts it.
The immune system is so complex that a big diversity of minor intrinsic and acquired immune defects are linked to CMC.
Yes, you could see the infection showed up after a period of your life when you were eating a lot of fruits and that made you to believe they were the culprit. Fruits accelerated your infection and your symptoms but they weren’t the root of the problem. Fruits probably coincided with a time of your life when you were developed immune tolerance to yeast, I am expeculating !! . Acquired immune tolerance can happen at any time of your life.
I am sure we all agree a good nutrition and healthy diet is the way to go. It doesn’t make any sense to go around it in circle. We all know it. No every candida debate needs to go to the nutrition route since there are more important things to be worry about it.
It is logic to think that if dietary habits were the cause of this syndrome, there were millions infected and suffering CRC when this isn’t the true.
We are a group that is affected because our immune status and iatrogenic causes.
