I don’t know what Thomas is referring to, however, according to a a research study published in the Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology journal, the effects of a low carbohydrate diet on IBS-D symptoms exhibited very positive results.
Basically all Candida diets are based on ingesting a minimal amount of carbohydrates and sugar. The patients in the research experiment were allowed only 20 grams of carbohydrates a day and statistics and information were collected during a period of four weeks regarding their IBS symptoms and quality of life.
Their symptom improvements were noted in various ways: specifically noted were a decrease of diarrhea, a substantial decrease in pain, and they all reported that the diet had a positive effect on their quality of life. As stated, this was all seen in a relatively short period of just four weeks.
With these research findings in mind, a strict Candida diet could be minimally adjusted to suit an IBS-D diet very easily unless a Candida overgrowth is present which would possibly necessitate a closer look at potential changes.
The official research report is located on the website below.
