All my Drs so far have either dismissed Candida or refuse to discuss it openly, it is almost as if it is a dirty subject they just don’t want to admit exsists!!
I hope you get yourself sorted.
I am now making sure I have a bottle of water with me wherever I go, if these places can’t supply me with a drink suitable for my diet, I will drink my own!!
As a coeliac I was eating before I started the candida diet, bars made by Putin. They are lovely and gluten and wheat free, some are soya free and they are all natural non added sugar.
However the bad news is, coco butter and brown rice starch is the sweetner, so all in all a no no on this diet. Maybe in a years time I can have one as a treat every so often.
As for soya, that is one of the worlds biggest corruption stories. If you really want to scare yourself have a read of this soya is bad for you
Thanks for the answer, I was finding this a strange one :0)
I think it depends which site or book you read. I have two books that say cottage cheese is okay for stage one, infact any cheese matured less than 3 months.
With this diet I have found that somethings affect me more and less than the books say, we are all individuals and I would guess that certain foods will cause different reations to others than they do to me. I think probably due to the severity of the infection.
Caffine is my worst enemy, on week 2 I thought, a cup of Earl Grey can’t hurt, I’ll have just one cup. I paid for it the next day, I felt as if I had been down the pub on an all nighter. I stick to my rooibos now.
I can only tell you my experience, this is in no means my advice to you :0)
Last month, after many trips to the Drs and many different contraceptive pills to control my endometriosis I decided I would try the Candida diet fully, including stopping my pill. I discussed it with my Dr and he said it was my choice to make.
Considering over the last 18 months I have suffered with severe pain on my left ovary and at least two and sometimes 4 periods a month, this obviously was seen as a risk by my Dr.
4 weeks into the diet, no pill, sticking to it as best as I can, I am starting to get my energy back, my period I have not had since my scheduled one, the endometriosis pain is far less, people are telling me my skin looks better and the bloated stomach and bad gas has nearly gone completley.
So as far as I am concerned, the pill has been messing my hormone levels about and probably has been for the last 20 years. Granted contraception is now an issue, this I will discuss when I see a specialist at Addenbrooks in July but I am looking forward to the conversation with him to prove I have been right for the last 6 months and the pill was bad for me.
An amino acid complex suppliment can help the sugar cravings, I take one each night before bed.
For baking I have bought coconut flour and carob flour, haven’t yet tried baking with them but I am a pretty good cook, I can usually muster something up.
I can’t get Stevia in the UK in our shops, the EU have banned it!
As for butter, ghee is just clarified butter. I do this at home myself, you warm the butter (I use goats butter) and once it’s melted the butter splits, you scrap the white lactose containing part off completley and you are then left with a clear liquid, this I then let cool and put in the fridge. Ghee in health food shops here are way too over priced!
Even the more mainstream medical books I have read have connected endometriosis to candida, which is why I have been so shocked by the response by my local surgery.
I am looking forward to seeing this specialist and if he is any good and acknowledges the link between the two I will let you all know how I get on.
Yes I have been and creamed coconut, I also have the Tiana brand coconut oil. It’s alot better on the breath than raw garlic.
However at the moment, coconut is in short supply world wide and so many supermarkets do not have stock at the moment and of course the price has gone up, as it always does when this happens.
Rooibos and Honeybush are both caffine free. I have recently bought a huge selection of both from a friend, it’s lovely to have a huge choice of different flavours. Being a tea and coffee addict, I needed to feel as if I was still getting my daily brew! Here is her site if you are interested.
Have you considered colonic irrigation?May 27, 2011 at 10:53 am in reply to: Does candidiasis natural remedies helpful to get cure of candidiasis? #63334
I have been eating huge amounts of garlic and coconut oil. From my personal experience in conjunction to the rest of the diet, they do act as a natural antifungal.
Without being too graphic, if you look into stool samples on a perscribed antifungal medication, the result is at first white stools when the fungus is being intitially flushed out from the body. I can confirm that in my case garlic and coconut have had the same effect on me!!
Green tea has caffine in it, try Rooibos (redbush) or honeybush tea, they are both caffine free naturally and are also wonderful anti-oxidants.May 27, 2011 at 10:45 am in reply to: Western medicines Candida ignorance illustrated: my tale #63332
I got told by my practice nurse when I told her I’d been reading about my symptoms that ‘who on earth has written these books and what do they know’??!!! The Health ‘Professionals’ want to keep us ignorant. It makes me very cross to see how many people are being turned away because of blatant neglect and ignorance.
