Hi! I'm just wondering if anyone here can help me out with this... many months ago i became gluten intolerant which lead to me becoming intolerant to other things like corn, soy, oats etc.. I eventually found out i have candida from my naturopath and have had to go on a terrible no sugar diet..
The naturopath helped me figure out food sensitivities using something called a biomeridian stress test and it seems to be fairly accurate, the foods that came up included all the foods I've mentioned and all grains except for rice and amaranth.. I find it a little strange though because I've never eaten millet or buckwheat before.. and they don't seem to have a relation to gluten at all since they are actually seeds :\ I didn't really care at first because I was still able to eat brown rice and amaranth so these are where my carb sources came from, but because of my huge lack of food on this candida diet I have now become intolerant to brown rice as I ate it daily instead of rotating it..
I really don't believe that in order to get rid of candida, you need to completely cut out carbs like most of the diets out there say, because I feel like I'm starving myself eating this way and my body cannot tolerate high amounts of meat and fat.. however I can't eat other kinds of carbs like potatoes because they are simple carbohydrates and create more sugar which feeds candida ARGH!!
I have been wanting to add more carbs into my diet and I am just wondering if it is even possible for me to be intolerant to things I haven't eaten before.. or at least not much.. because i would really like to be able to add things like buckwheat, millet and quinoa into my diet.. but I'm really scared of what will happen if i do and it turns out I'm intolerant :/ I hope someone can help me with this!
