Anti-Candida Diet - Seeds Vs. Grains
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

 

Just starting to work on my candida issues and it looks like just taking some plain old Candex is not gonna do it and I need to make some dietary changes as well.

 

I am just learning about the Candida diet, and how grains are a no no because of their starches but seeds are okay. Can someone please explain to me how this works? I mean as far as I know, seeds also have starches in them...so how come starch in the grains are not good for candida over-growth people but seeds are okay??

 

Thank you so much,

God Bless.

Hi Ray!

 

I know a great deal about food...but can't answer your question off the top of my head...maybe try a different internet site or google your question.

 

Take care :)

If you have candida issues, you probably need some serious systemic prescription strength anti-fungals (e.g. Diflucan).  The candida diet requires that you eliminate or minimize sugars/starches and that includes even fruit.  All meats/fish must be fresh and not processed.  You should be eating veggies morning, noon and night!  I was able to stick to this regime for about a month (while on a four day rotational diet).  I was so hungry that I started to include some squashes and sweet potatoes.  Eventually, I added some whole grains back into my diet as I began to feel better.  I only ate one piece of fruit a week as a treat. 

Please try to find a medical doctor who can help you through this process.   Drugs, diet and probotics are required for a full recovery. 

(Just my opinion and I’m not a doctor!)

P.S.  What were your symptoms and what might have caused your candida issues?  Seeds?  Eat them in moderation after the first month.

Wen you were diagnosed with this, what did the doctor say? Just ask around? :(. Seriously, like cycling lady said, take you meds and find a good website or book or a pamphlet from your docotor that describes how you should eat.

Diflucan is not very effective against Candida any more,  it's also a heavy duty drug that makes you feel BAD. I'd suggest you take amphotericin B instead because it's more effective.

 

The immune system disease I have "Kimura's" is in theory (and I agree) caused by excessive immune system stimulation by candida even a tiny sub-clinical amount while you have a damaged gut is enough. I'm down to diet and heavy exercise as the best things to help keep it's levels down.  Probiotics work and work well BUT don't take any yoghurt that's made with streptococcus thermophilus as this can be a very immune system stimulating in a bad way bacteria in weakened guts. Better to make your own yoghurt without that one, it's in a lot of commercial greek style yoghurts.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
