I agree with you partially. Yes, we don’t need to live our life eating burgers, pizza, drinking soda, and using refined sugar. You are totally correct about this statement. The problem is candida sufferers CAN NOT it pears, banana, mango, kiwi, strawberry, whole grain breads, potatoes, beans, rice, milk, etc. What I want to say is you can not add Fruits, Milk Products, Grains, and Legumes without experience a relapse. Think about how many healthy food you have to leave apart.! Even going restrict for the rest of your life, a think I see very difficult because you are a human after all, you never are going to feel totally well until your nutrition be better balanced.
This is the nightmare of it. Fruits, milk products, rice, legumes, and many healthy food cause rebounds in the same way pizza and soda do. It is matter of time to get the infection back if you don’t eradicate it. Candida must be cured no managed. We all should be fighting for a cure.
There are medicines, treatments, experience, knowledge, and our wish to be well at all. Why we have to be conform with managing if we can fight for a cure ?? It means a fungal intestinal overgrowth has more power than us ???
I always thing about a Curezone colleague who’s nick is ” Get cured or die trying ” This is the position we all should have in my humble opinion. Life is only one and everybody deserves to live it plentifully.
But there are lots of people, Able included, and others that are on here as well as people I know in person that CAN eat fruit, rice, dairy, and wheat. They just don’t eat it all day, every day, which nobody should do! They are healthy foods to a point, but not to excess. Dairy is actually pretty terrible for you, fruit is good for fiber but the high sugar means you should not overeat it, legumes and the like are difficult for anyone to digest in high amounts…we are designed to eat a balanced diet heavy on the veggies, light on a mix of other foods.
I really fail to see how there could possible be a medicine invented that would be more efficient than sticking to the diet/protocol on the forum (or something very similar). We need to stop thinking in terms of instant gratification, pop a pill, and instead think about long term healing. If you’ve spent the majority of your life jacking up your system through a poor diet, substance abuse, or over/mis-medication, it’s not going to heal in a week or even a month. I would rather teach my body to heal itself so that it is sustainably healed over dropping a nuclear anti-candida bomb inside of me and picking up the pieces after, or having to become dependent on a medication for the rest of my life. I’d rather be stuck eating kale than eating chemicals that give me the illusion of health :p
The only time I feel like I’m missing out or that my life is somehow restrained is when people try to pity me and tell me how bad I should feel that I can’t have XYZ or how much my life must suck without it…or if everyone is having something that I can’t have…but that is just psychological, a need to not be left out of a situation. If our culture wasn’t so focused on overindulgence and instead cared more about spending positive, healthy quality time together, then it wouldn’t be a big deal at all. Obviously, I look forward to adding some foods back in as well as being able to eat out again, but for day-to-day, this really isn’t that bad once the symptoms begin to subside.
