I saw this at the health food store the other day. I didn’t get it, and didn’t pay too much attention to it. I’ll research it here in a minute, but I just wondered; has anybody tried this, since hemp is recommended? It might be another milk alternative. I have decided that despite me not liking dairy, I can really tolerate goat yogurt/milk; surprising. I just had to look for another alternative because I can’t do coconut all the time, and too much tree nuts/almond can cause a reaction, but every once in awhile can be okay; small quantity; too much leaky gut. Rotation!
Anyways, I hope you people respond. No one seems to respond to my posts anymore. It makes me very frustrated!!!April 19, 2013 at 1:43 pm #103120

Hello, Kj, please don’t become frustrated just because other members are not familiar with a specific question you may ask, especially if it concerns a food or drink which is not on the strict diet. People on the strict diet normally stick to the foods that are on the diet, so they may have little knowledge of other foods.
My advice about drinking hemp milk is; if you’re going to drink it, either make it yourself or be certain that the ingredients list nothing but pure hemp milk. On a normal basis, you can’t trust commercially produced foods or drinks while you’re on a Candida treatment and diet. This is why so many people on the treatment have a problem with commercially purchased Greek yogurt.

Thanks Able, I try to follow most of the guidelines in this diet, but you are probably right that people do not understand my stomach and no colon. I am just unique due to my history and condition that I find certain things on this diet actually bother me. However, with researching candida more on this site; I have understood more things in my life than ever!
Sorry for ranting. It just becomes frustrating sometimes, but I am just going to have to consider that I am always going to have this gastroparesis, too. Again, all your advice has helped, but it still trial and error on some things. I can say that I have come a long way since the beginning of the year. It is amazing that I am able to tolerate some vitamins, probiotics, etc. now. Last year, I could not say that at all. My gut was so leaky that I could not tolerate anything at all!! Of course, diet is always going to be a factor.
Yes, I tried greek yogurt for the first time a couple weeks ago, and I had problems with it. I want to buy a yogurt maker to make it myself to see if that improves things. I hope you understand!April 19, 2013 at 3:06 pm #103125

I just read a lot of your posts from the past, Kj, and I did see several questions that were not answered.
But the first post I saw that received no reply was titled “Frustrated” in which you asked no questions, but admitted that you were only “ranting” so possibly the members simply left you alone because they’re aware that everyone has to rant at one point or another with a Candida infestation.
In another member’s thread you asked the following question but did not receive an answer:
“I am believing more and more is just better to watch your carb intake, use some coconut flour in recipes, eat more veggies, etc. is the best strategy. However, what other kind of flours could I use?”
I take it that you have the strict diet which I would have supplied to you if you’ve requested it, and if you do, then you have a list of the ‘flours’ that are allowed on that diet. If a specific product is not listed in that group, then I would not be able to recommend it because I experienced with practically all known ‘flours’ available in the US during my own treatment. This is in fact how the diet came to be designed. Other members have used other flours with different levels of success, Raster for example has used teff flour with no problems as far as he’s aware of.
In another member’s thread on mercury removal and detoxing you asked the following question and it was not answered by anyone contributing to the thread including Dvjorge who is the local expert on the subject of mercury:
“Do you think maybe my history of having braces (2.5 years), retainer (another 2 years), and still wear a wire on my bottom front teeth (permanent) could pose a problem?”
I image the reason you received no replies to this question was because no one on the forum has that information. We can’t answer questions on which we have on experience or knowledge, so you’ll probably have to ask a professional about this potential problem.
I also found this question which you asked in March concerning acacia fiber.
No one answered my question yesterday. I was just wondering if anybody has taken acacia fiber before and your experiences with it???
Danny33 answered your question the same day it was posted, but you didn’t reply to him with a “thanks” so maybe you’ve not checked back to see if anyone replied. http://www.thecandidadiet.com/forum/yaf_postst7404_Acacia-fiber.aspx
Then I found these questions about kefir which were not answered.
I know I really need to start making my own kefir to get better as well, since like I said, my symptoms probably still can come and go. where to buy a good kefir starting kit? Can I make it without milk?
You can purchase starter kits at the Body Ecology website, and yes, you can make kefir without cow’s milk.
You have a lot of posts, and I only had time to read the first five pages, so if you have other questions that have not been answered, please post them in this thread and I’ll try to answer them.

Commercially produced hemp milk is all full of sugar. It’s a bummer because the Pacific brand is freaking delicious :p But it’s delicious because it’s full of sugar, LOL!
I’d imagine you could make your own, though, with organic hemp seeds and filtered water.April 20, 2013 at 1:57 pm #103169
Thanks for the replies Able. You are very kind to take the time to respond to so many people’s questions, problems, and trying to help them. Yes, I have been frustrated lately because I have been doing rotation on food lately, trying new flours, etc. As you said, you practically tried all the flours out there. Maybe my body is not ready for it yet when I thought I might be able to experiment a little bit more.
For now, I am going to try and go back to some to the beginning of some recommendations that I met with my integrative doctor in December. I have a follow-up in May. Some of the advice she gave me really helped, but other things I found did not work out so well, including surprisingly some of the foods she recommended that feed candida. I guess it is still trial and error on some people to find out what works for them.
I am excited that sf722 is going to be shipping out. I have some on backorder, so hopefully that should get here soon! Everybody raves about it, so I am curious.
I think you summed up some answers for me. I think the only other question I have, which I have asked a million times, and yes, you have answered it; however, I am not sure what to do about it. I definitely intolerant to whey and casein, even in the smallest amount. So, even though I am not ingesting milk on a lactoferrin supplement, I am still having cow, whey.
Now, as I pointed out, I found that I can stand goat yogurt, which I have been having for breakfast lately. I don’t mind it. I read the other day that a few other people found they tolerated this better, too. I found on iherb that their is a goat colostrum/lactoferrin supplement I think; do you think that might work just as well? Less lactose, less harsh on my system.
I really need the iron, and I know my integrative doctor recommended lactoferrin to me, and after reading this form; I know why!
Also, if I didn’t tolerate that, I think I read that you mentioned something about a pure form of iron called pur-absorb; I think I have some in the cabinet here, but I haven’t taken it that much. I think you said that is beneficial because, like you mentioned, it is pure. Anyways, thanks for your help!
Alex, I looked into the hemp milk online; I found their was an unsweetened version of hemp milk with no sugar, but yes, the regular is full of sugar. I am curious though, is carcinogen bad; I never thought about it before because I have read that in a few ingredients on things!April 20, 2013 at 2:03 pm #103171
Oh, one final question I think that has been unanswered? I still have a lot of urinary systems that just never seem to go away. I feel like I have to pee all the time, but I can only let out a little squirt here and there. Then, it seems I can only go in the morning, or during the night, which keeps me up. I have been trying to support my liver; don’t know if that will help, or do you think some type of kidney detox might help? I don’t want to overload my body with things, but this I really wish this urinary issue would clear up!!!
Ok, I think that is it! =) lol Have a great day! I’m off to another day of craft-making for me. Glad I got some rest last night, been having trouble sleeping again.
