    Hello everyone

    I wanted to write on here and see what everyone else felt about my treatment so far.

    Since 2009 I have suffered with an unknown issue, being sent through every test known only to be told it was in my head and I should take antidepressants.

    Now in 2012 I can no longer suffer this no more and in February I saw a health specialist. I had a number of tests run on me and it shows that I have Candida.

    My health specialist has setup a special diet for me (no foods that will feed the Candida) and has put me on a number of supplements – the idea being to kill off the Candida slowly so I don’t experience a full die off. I am now onto day 6 of her diet and while the bloating got a bit better, there is still not a big improvement yet. I guess I want to ask if this is the right way to eliminate this – is it effective?

    I have no craving for food, but I am desperate for this to improve. Should I stick with it and see how it goes? My life is pretty much ruined right now because of this.

    Check out our protocol, the cleanse is optional:

    It may not be fun at first, but within a few months you will feel pretty normal/good. It all takes time, dedication, and patience. I also was pretty upset at first that this is what my problem was, but it feels good now knowing that I healed myself by just following a diet and taking vitamins.

    Hello, Samm.
    It may be, but it would be impossible to know without knowing the diet and supplements you’re taking. If you’ll post that information, we can have a look and respond.

    Good point! And thanks for the responses both.

    Right now I’m on a non yeast, wheat, gluten, sugar and starchy food diet. A lot of vegetables and fish with meat being rotated every 3 days. I am also allowed eggs, cashew nut butter, quinoa, brown rice with more that I can write down tomorrow.

    The above has already improved my diet tenfold, my diet was very bad before.

    Will post supplements tomorrow as well as I have left the list at home.

    If you’re seeing no improvement at all, it could be that the brown rice is feeding the Candida just enough to keep them going. This would be the only thing other than possibly the cashew nut butter.

    Thank you so much, you have no idea. I’ve been reading your posts before my post and you are a fantastic help.

    What about oats. I’m also being told to eat them for breakfast for energy – gluten free musli, organic corn flakes, gluten free porridge…. Etc

    Time to roll out the “acceptable food list” link!

    http://www.thecandidadiet.com/forum/yaf_postst1136_ALLOWED-FOODS-LIST.aspx

    (it recently changed formats, so you might need to do some searching through its 11 pages (or just use the “search” link on the forum toolbar) if you have further questions)

    I can tell you right off the bat, none of us eat corn, wheat, nor potatoes until we are well, well along in our treatment (and even then, many members still shun the first two). Most of us also don’t eat rice in any form until stage two (and even then, black and red rice are probably better than brown).

    As far as grains (well, grain-like foods) go, the best is probably buckwheat (groats or flour; the groats can be prepared just like rice!). Also good are coconut flour, millet, oat bran flour, and teff flour. I am in fact eating 100% buckwheat soba noodles as I type this!

    It sounds like the diet your nutritionist recommended is different from the one advocated here on the forum. So it’s up to you which to go with. The diet that was recommended to me was way more lenient than this one, but I wanted to be rid of my symptoms and the candida overgrowth as quickly as possible, so I’ve been following the stricter form found here on the forums.

    Thanks for your post back Himawari. It’s nice to know there are people to turn to when nobody else understands.

    I’ve checked out that acceptable food list – I had a look at it before, but I think it can help me with the diet plan I have already written.

    Thanks for the corn advice, I know Maize is a type of corn so I will avoid that too.

    I do like fish though, and I like to have something like fish as a main with my dinner. How many times a week should I have fish – can I rotate and have fish for dinner for three days, another meat for one and then go back. What do others do? Vegetables are not an issue, I can happily eat vegetables with anything – I just need some sort of main… I’ll struggle to cut it with Eggs, but I will have those for dinner tonight while I can read more on here…..

    Hello, H.

    Actually I don’t think potatoes are introduced until stage 3 on the site’s foods list now. This is part of why I changed my list over to the site’s, so please correct me if I’m wrong, but if they were originally listed on stage one, I believe it was changed a while back.

    I don’t think corn is even mentioned; please help me out here if I missed it. And wheat is now on the ‘Foods to Avoid’ list. Big changes in the diet, thanks to the administrator (Anna).

    Right I promised the supplement list so I can get your opinions guys…

    BETA TCP – for liver support – 2 tablets 3 times per day with main meals
    COLEX – cleanse the colon – 4 capsules per day with breakfast
    DR WILSONS DYNAMITE ADRENAL – one scoop per day with breakfast
    S. BOULARDII – 1 cap 3 times daily before meals
    MARSHMALLOW & GAMMA ORYZANOL – 2 caps at the beginning of each meal

    I should point out I am on the adrenal support as my adrenal glands were all over the place upon testing.

    I’d also be really grateful if someone could look at the diet plan I have been written and make suggestions?

    Diet Plan PDF

    She has tried to write me a diet that does not have a huge die off, but I think I would like to take away some of that stuff so I know I am getting better quicker.

    I have also started to add one tablespoon of Coconut Oil per day. I’m thinking about adding oil of oregano as well – good idea or bad idea?

    Cheers all.

    Wow, your health specialist is obviously not a candida specialist. There is so much wrong with the diet prescribed that I dont know where to start. Sorry.

    I suggest you go for this websites diet if you want to make serious improvement. I know, it sucks.

    Thanks Chris – interesting to say the least.

    I was thinking this, but I am going to be on the cleanse from today and then follow the diet put together by this site.

    At least she got me tested for it and was able to tell me what it was I guess!
