    Hello,

    So I went to my naturopath about a week ago and have now found out that I have Candida. Ive always been relatively tired and lethargic never feeling quite “right” but I could ignore that. I got really sick with a bad cold about 5 months ago and following the cold I got a really bad sinus infection. I took around of Antibiotics for this infection and then the week after went off to Las Vegas where I ate only junk food and drank copious amounts of beer. My sinus infection had still not passed from the medicine and to this day has not, as to why I went to see the Naturopath because the traditional doctors and specialists were not giving me anything to go off of. He confirmed that I have candida. So, to the point, I’ve quit sugar, fruit, bread, beer, pretty much everything that ever gave me joy, haha… but cigarettes, for now I have quit. But do I have to? Is this absolutely necessary for my recovery? Please let me know because this one has made my life a really large struggle.

    Thanks

    Hello Jay,

    I have smoked throughout my treatment and all it does is sets back the timeline you expect to get better. I’ve been on the diet for a year and spent a ton of money on supplements. If you were to quit smoking you likely could get better in half the time or a little longer than that or so. Its inflammatory and damages an organ that is very important in detoxing. It also causes oral thrush or contributes to it and basically is feeding candida.

    What I’ve noticed is that as you get healthy, you tend to not want to do unhealthy things. So I plan to quit in the 6 months…I’ve been a smoker for the last 15 years more or less and have never quit before. Got down to ultra lights tho, noticed a big improvement from that alone! Half of my life been a smoker, so sad…I’ll get it done, its gettin old.

    Just ranting about it.

    Well, Jay, if I tell you what will make you happy I’ll have to say, “No problem, go ahead and smoke all you want.” On the other hand, if I tell you the truth, I’ll have to say that smoking will likely cause the treatment to take much longer than normal because cigarettes and/or nicotine can damage the adrenals and immune system.

    In addition to that, I can tell you about a study which shows that the effect of cigarette smoke condensate promotes oral yeast carriage and the possibility of infection.

    Thank you for your prompt response. I will continue to not smoke.

    One more question.

    Beer, that’s an absolute no right?? Never not even one? haha

    And for how long does this have to go on do you think, because it’s summer, and that’s probably like my favourite beverage in the world.

    Beer is the worst (after whisky)on a candida diet. If you really cant go without drinking beer this summer you’d have to take more direct measures in taking care of this ailment. If you want to keep detoxing and improve your health as a whole: the protocol is excellent.

    Smoking joints has helped me a lot with stress during my months of protocol. Its not good for you, but neither is sleeplessness and anxiety.

    I don’t know what kind of timeline you are planning, but plan on a 6-18 month recovery period to recover from candida. If you want to get over it as fast as possible, you won’t drink alcohol, coffee, smoke, and party. Eventually you can get strong enough to the point where these things won’t set you back but you need to focus on your health in order to get better. If you can quit easily, go for it, but for me its a major hurdle.

    Can’t a forum admin set something up against the commercial invasion?!

    I could recommend taking a prescription antidepressant such as an SSRI (zoloft, and other brands) due to the stress reducing factor, sleepfactor and appitite on this diet. Just keep in mind that they are also antifungal, and also give irrational fear/anxiety/stress and even suicide thought in the first period of taking them – Just remember that the drug and candida is causing this, and that every problem you get, will get 5x more stressful in that period due to these conditions. But afterwards, everything gets a lot more easy! 🙂 The stressfull period was only 14 days for me.

    Hi Jaybahr,

    i have been on the candida diet for nearly 3 months. I have really been stuggling with the smoking im on again off them again since staring the diet, OXYGEN is very important during the treatment and smoking not great for that. For me i drink chamomile tea and passionflower to help calm me down, it has helped me quit again. Have you tried the smoking passionflower, i heard people quit that way too by slowly putting more and more passionflower in there tabaco and slowly decreasing the amount of tabaco in the mix.
