I have had Systemic Candiasis for over a decade. I started having problems with multiple Fungal infections after getting messed up on meth as a teenager. I have dealt with this for years. It only goes away or gets better if you honestly cut out all the things that feed it from your diet.
I am yeast free (no breads as much as possible), gluten-free, and also lactose-free. I found out I’m allergic to gluten and lactose. Two things I ate ALL the time. I am also low-sugar, low-carb. Stay away from over processed foods and fast food as much as possible.
It’s the most difficult thing to do, changing up your diet, but after 4-6 weeks your taste buds will change, and even if your body is craving sugar, starches, etc. you will begin to really enjoy the raw veggies, rice pasta, yogurt, etc. that your body can have…
I also take a Candida cleanse herbal supplement for months at a time when my overgrowth comes back. It’s a struggle to have it from your hairline to your toes and everywhere inbetween. The Candida in my system is now a full fungal form. It’s much more difficult to get rid of. When I have a “die-off” wave, my entire body itches from head to toe. I guess sticking with it is the most difficult, I also have to avoid “moldy” foods like cheeses… I try to be as vigilent as possible but it’s not always easy.
Peanuts and a lot of other nuts have a tendency to grow mold, and that only provokes the yeast in your gut.
Make sure you are taking a strong probiotic, change up your diet, don’t starve yourself to starve the Fungus. That type of stress only weakens your system further. It is over working itself trying to help clear out the toxins that are a by product from the infection itself.
I promise, if you eat right and be strict, your tastes will change and you will love the foods that are Anti-Candida!
I’m no saint. I struggle with it, and have for a decade, but I’m finally seeing results. Diet, probiotics, and herbal antifungal supplement have done wonders.
Best of luck to you in the future!
