    apple cider vinegar is considered a good bacteria. I find it really gets me on track whenever i get off track.

    I normally do the lemon and olive oil thing as well as someone mentioned with the garlic or ginger (that sounds good, im going to try it)

    A new one i just started is
    olive oil
    apple cider viegar
    s+p
    epicure spice mix
    dijon mustard
    sun dried tomatoes.

    I’m on stage 3 so it may be different for you. its seems to be okay with me so far.

    I use it all the time and used it in that stage of my diet in moderation. Coconut it good for you to kill off candida. but it does naturally contain sugars, same as plain yogurt so i would keep it to a minimum.

    If you ever want whipped cream ontop of anything fruit etc. when your on stage two here is the process…

    1 can coconut milk chilled in the fridge for 24 hours.
    pour out cocnut water and save for smoothies or something else.
    use only the thick white cream part.

    use a cold bowl and put coconut cream in it and whipp with your mixer or by hand very vigorously until it thickens up and turns into whipped cream consistency. better using a mixer if you got it.

    i looked into it furthur was speaking to a few people and they say. there is no gluten in oats, however there is normally in the factories they produce them in. asnd the farming equiptment is used for wheat ect. so thats how it cross contaminates.

    There are Gluten Free oats out there I bought them and they are sooooooooooo gooooood!!!

    i normally do eggs as well but i find a yummy addition is adding a dark green salad with cucumber. with a olive oil and lemon dressing. i find it refreshing.

    I like to eat gluten free oats a few times a month. Oat are gluten free however they are normally manufactured in a facility with wheat. So GF oats with cinnamon and unsweetned soy milk is delicious.

    Gluten free toast smothered in coconut oil and almond butter.

    chopped up apple, almonds, sunflower seeds, toasted GF oats, cinnamon and unsweetened soy milk.

    Cooked quinoa, then in a pan, fry any kind of veggie you want in coconut oil, sprinle cinnamon and tumeric. It is so freakin good. It sounds weird but it delicious and gives you some extra veggies.

    also you could do baked apples till they are very smouchy. and you could add that to your Gluten free toast with almond butter. Its almost like a jam idea but not as sweet (only use on stage 2 or three of diet)

    you can also buy gluten free biscuit mix at the natural food store or grocery store depending on your area. just make sure you read the ingredients before purchasing.

    or my biscuit recipe is as follows….its not the best but its pretty satisfying…

    3/4c. rice flour
    1/4c. corn starch
    pinch of salt
    3 tbp baking powder (aluminum free)

    2/3c unsweetened soy milk

    mix all together. Its pretty sticky but you can add some rice flour if needed but not too much you dont want dry them out. I have also considered adding an egg to the recipe and maybe holding back a little on the milk because i feel it may make them more moist. But I havent tried yet.

    g’luck!

    confirmed can be done through a scope into your stomach and/ or various tests done by your naturopathic doctor.

    women are more prone to candida but men can get it too. its easier for men to cure, i hear.

    good luck

    A gluten intolerance could be the reason you have candida. If this is the case you will never cure as the gluten could be the reason you are having candida symptoms. The best thing is to cut out all glutens and bring them in later slowly to see if it causes an effect. The problem is with candida symptoms can be systemic, which means you may not feel the negative effect of a food until a few days later. which is why it should be re-introduced slowly.

    It’s up to you. I have been eating them for the two years that I have been doing this diet and didn’t realize it was gluten. Im now starting to realize that the gluten has been the problem the whole time.

    Gluten can be found in sauces, sausages, wheat, durum, spelt, and sooooo many other things. Its actually crazy where it all is.

    good luck

    i’ve been wondering about this. I know when you have candida you get sensitive to alot of things. but i have heard that candida can be the result of an alergy. which im not sure if its an alergy that has always been there or if it develops later on in life which then causes the candida.

    so for intstance i think that my “alergy” or “intolerene” is either potatoes or wheat. for some reason i think it may be both. Confusing! :S

    I use oil of oregano. and my naturopath suggests i take it whenever i cheat. like 2-5 drops in the am and in the pm.

    I havent taken diflucan since my symptoms first started 3 years ago. Back then it didnt help me at all. But my family physician suggested taking it recently. My symptoms are relatively gone but I was thinking of taking it just to knock out any candida that may still be in my system. But ièm hestitant. I didnt realize it was hard on the liver so that makes me even more hesitatnt.

    I cant imagine it being to bad if you just take it once or twice. Taking it anymore maybe but it cant be that bad. can it?

    Hi,

    It seemed to have helped. I also have done the diet intense and other things that really helped. I posted in the candida advice section called “What helped me cure my yeast infection” which will help with any of your candida symptoms. It really did help me.

    Hey,

    I took diflucan once when my symptoms were really bad. It helped me for about a week and then my symptoms returned. However, my doctor was telling me that it could have been because my symptoms were so bad and he suggested I take it again. I haven’t took it again because it seems that my symptoms are finally under control. In Canada where I am from we can now buy diflucan over the counter. The doctor told me that Canestan now make a pill that you can buy from the drug store. I’m not sure if that’s the case in your area but its worth a look.

    Also, if you can find it the doctor prescribed me “saccharomyces boulardii” which is a strong form of probiotics they give to their patients who had a long dose of antibiotics. the pharmacist was also helpful and let me know that that is also an over the counter remedy that can be found at the drug store. If you have no luck with that being that you are in a different country and things may be different you may be able to find it at a natural food store.

    The doctor suggested taking the diflucan and saccharomyces boulardii at the same time. And also told me I may have to take diflucan more then once. However because I got so far in the diet and I feel better now for about a month I havent bothered but the saccharomyces boulardii helps for sure.

    I wouldnt take it. I had heart burn/ reflux. Doc gave me nexium and my candida symptoms got REALLY bad. Stomach felt nice but everything else like shit. Apple cider vinegar diluted in water helps reflux. DGL also. Try to stay away from meds, in my experience it messes with your system that you are trying to naturally re-build. Just tailor your diet and use natural remedies, in my opinion.

    Hi,
    I have never had expereince with anti-deppressants. but what I have noticed is most medications I have been proscribed by and MD normally throws my entire system for a loop and I beleive this is what has cause my problems in the past.

    I would talk to your doctor about getting off of them if possible. And if you have a light case of depression maybe working through it solo.

    Beware, my friend was on anti-depressants tried to get off and she had major withdrawls that intensified her symtoms. Please talk to your doctor.
