You may have sensitivities to salicytates, amines, and glutamates and benefit from an RPAH elimination diet
This is the culmination of over 2 decades of research at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, Australia and is completely backed up clinically.
Or you may benefit from a low FODMAP diet
This diet is the culmination of years of research at Box Hill Hospital and Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and is completely backed up clinically.
Google around for more info
It’s of my opinion that it is first more worthwhile to look into these areas as well as any others you may come across that are embedded in years of successful research that are recognised by the medical community, before you attempt something like the candida diet.
***This is just my opinion and I thought it could be helpful***
I personally tried the candida diet and did not see any benefits, I however can speak to the efficacy of the RPAH elimination diet.May 28, 2012 at 3:12 am #83229

A low FODMAPs diet has been clinically shown to relieve symptoms. There are doubts about it’s long-term benefits. Starving beneficial bacteria obviously isn’t a solution to anything. It’s kind of like those drugs for osteoarthritis that relieve symptoms while contributing to the destruction of cartilage – the source of the pain.
I can’t comment on the other diet but the question has to be why you’re sensitive to these things rather than just how to avoid them.
One protocol can’t possibly work for everyone, but in my view GI problems are ultimately resolved by restoring balance to the microbiota. Any approach that achieves this is worth pursuing.
People with candida overgrowth obviously need to take special precautions, so this discussion is only really relevant to people who haven’t had a proper diagnosis.
