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.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
