Based upon my own experience and medical advice that suggests that complete elimination of carbohydrates may not be the best route for healthy weight, brain function, and emotional health, I had to say no to the strict candida diet. Instead, I relied on reasonable, healthy eating (what is recommended on Dr. Oz’s website or what your integrative MD would suggest) while using a variety of prescription strength antifungals, a probiotic, and a couple natural supplements (many of them recommended on this site). If you can’t get the prescription strength antifungals, then my heart totally goes out to you. I tried strict-ish forms of the candida diet and they were pretty uniformly disastrous for me. Because my brain is my big money-maker, I couldn’t risk compromising it ;). Have you thought of going to an integrative MD? Best of luck to you on your journey!
