    Does anyone know if Kelp is an antifungal? It is rich in iodine which I have seen on one website is a good way to combat candida.

    I have also seen conflicting information on the internet as to whether kelp might lower or increase blood pressure and as I take medication to keep my BP in check I don’t want to start something that will increase my BP. Has anyone got any personal knowledge or experience on this?

    Hello, James.
    Yes, kelp is an antifungal as well as an antioxidant and contains antibacterial properties.
    Kelp iodine can be purchased in a liquid form which, as you mentioned can supply your iodine as well.

    As far as your blood pressure is concerned; the candida diet is lowering your cholesterol as you continue to follow the protocol.

    In a research experiment, a group of volunteers, all needing medication for high blood pressure, were placed on a low-carb diet. In a period of six months, the serum total cholesterol level decreased, the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level decreased, the triglyceride level decreased, high-density lipoprotein (HDL – the good part of cholesterol) level increased, and the cholesterol/HDL cholesterol ratio decreased.

    The readings were:
    Serum total cholesterol: decrease of 11 ± 26 mg/dL (P = 0.006)
    Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol l decrease of 10 ± 25 mg/dL (P = 0.01)
    Triglyceride level decrease of 56 ± 45 mg/dL (P <0.001)
    Lipoprotein (HDL- the good cholesterol) increase of 10 ± 8 mg/dL (P <0.001)
    Total cholesterol/HDL ratio decrease of 0.9 ± 0.6 units (P <0.001)

    I have recently been placed on a vitamin called “min-tran” which is made from kelp. I take it because I wake up in the middle of the night due to the need to urinate. I must be deficient in iodine I am thinking.

    I used to wake up 1+ times a night to use the restroom. Several weeks ago, I started taking a kelp supplement because I was concerned about how little iodine I was getting. I used to take a mulivitamin that had it (because I am vegetarian so don’t get from fish/seafood). With the candida diet I could no longer take the multivitamin so I thought the kelp supplement would help. I understand that iodine is still in many of the foods on the diet (such as kelp and eggs) but I thought the kelp supplement couldn’t hurt me a few times a week.

    Anyways…I noticed that I no longer have to get up at night to use the restroom. It’s an amazing feeling to wake up at 7 am…and realize that was the first time I had woke up. 🙂

    I’m sure other things I’m doing with the diet are also helping. General better health one of them! 🙂
