I know coconut flour is allowed on the diet, but i noticed that the brand i got has 1g of sugar per serving. It is Bob’s Red Mill brand. How is this ok? Same with the coconut milkApril 7, 2014 at 5:22 pm #117837
1G is pretty negligible, your vegetables have more than that in them. I wouldn’t worry about it.

Thanks. I just get so confused because it is no sugar, but then other things that are allowed have sugarApril 7, 2014 at 5:25 pm #117839

This is fine.
Candida will survive fine even if you just drink water all day.
You are simply minimizing your sugar intake, not eliminating it.

So how does the diet help if it lives anyway? I know it is naturally in the gut, but i am new to this and wondering how the diet helps at all. I have no idea about any of this.April 7, 2014 at 5:56 pm #117841
Danny is right, candida can survive on anything. Candida has a preferred food which is sugar. If you feed it lots of sugar it grows very quickly. If you feed it nothing at all(no carb no sugar) it feels threatened and starts to become virulent and aggressive. So the point is to keep it from growing out of control. Diet won’t cure you but it will sure help to slow the growth of candida. Plus the diet will help to eliminate the burden of toxic processed foods your body has to mop up.April 7, 2014 at 5:58 pm #117842
Thanks! This clears things up. So i am guessing it is the supplements that kill the overgrowth?April 7, 2014 at 6:11 pm #117843
Yep, antifungals will get rid of the infection, the problem is keeping it away. If it was a simple course of ABX that tipped you over you should be able to recover just from diet and antifungals. Most people with candida can’t easily get rid of it because of an underlying issue which is suppressing the immune system.April 7, 2014 at 6:20 pm #117844
Could i possibly message you directly some how?April 7, 2014 at 6:40 pm #117845
This isn’t a sugar free diet but a low sugar diet. Onions have 3-6g of sugar, a head of lettuce has 3g of sugar, rutabega has like 10g of sugar, etc. If you were compare this to fruits, a banana contains 30g of sugar, a green apple contains 20g of sugar, pineapple is high in sugar (40g per serving or something)…
What this diet comes down to is feeding the yeast less than your previous american style diet.
If you have an underlying immune problem, this is hard to treat by yourself on your own. This is why I recommend consulting a naturopath who can help you unravel you health history and make decisions based on this.

Thanks. Any idea what immune problems can cause this?April 7, 2014 at 8:23 pm #117860
Thyroid/adrenal problems, heavy metals such as mercury, dysbiosis of the gut, pH imbalances, co-infections, etc. We’ve spent a lot of time on the forum covering these topics in the past…
If you were do to chelation on your own it could cause a ton of problems.

This all started after a root canal, and pregnancy. It started in my pregnancy but would come and go. Then i miscarried, and 3 weeks later it came back and has been constant now for 3 months. I got the root canal tooth removed thinking this may have caused the problems. It never made any difference to my symptoms. Before all my symptoms i had terrible constipation issues for monthsApril 7, 2014 at 10:29 pm #117865
Do you have amalgam fillings and have you taken antibiotics?

Yeah i have 2 that are probably 10+ years old. Never had an issue until i got pregnant. I really don’t think they are the cause, and i took some antibiotics since having this. Doctor said it was a sinus infection and prescribed something. ENT said i don’t have a sinus issue. The antibiotics made my symptoms 10 times worse. Before that i hadn’t taken antibiotics in over a year.
