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,
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.
