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.

    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Does celiac disease still prevent the absorption of iron if you are on a gluten-free diet?  Since my MCHC blood levels are low, I was wondering if it is because I will always have a problem absrobing iron due to celiace disease. I had to take iron supplements in the past or that is when I found out I had celiac disease. But I have been off the iron supplements for a cuple years now and my hemoglobin in blood is normal at 12.

      I agree with everything cyclinglady said. You need to be tested BEFORE you go gluten free!!!!!! I was just reading an interview with Joseph A. Murray, MD who is head of the celiac dept. at Mayo Clinic & one of the top celiac experts & researchers in the world. He talks about this subject of going gluten free before testing many times during this interview. It's interesting reading. Please take a little time to read it all the way through. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/820397_3

      That's interesting. I asked her if there was a blood test I could take, she said no. I don't think she feels I have celiac disease, per se, just wants to rule out an allergy or sensitivity to gluten. If after the 6 weeks, there is no difference, she suggested eliminating something else from my diet. She mentioned leaky gut and GMOs as well. Thanks for your input. I appreciated it.
    • Eating food cooked on a grill (eg, quesadillas, fish)
      In Mexican restaurants, I ask them to heat the corn tortillas in foil.  Also, make sure you ask if the chips are made in a dedicated fryer.

      Your GI is sadly mis-informed!  You should be tested for Celiac Disease before embarking on a gluten free diet.  Celiac Disease should be ruled out first!  So many doctors think that you have to be malnourished and wasting away to have celiac disease -- not true!  You can develop celiac disease at ANY age.  Do you have any other autoimmune disorders?   Celiac disease is also genetic.  So, if you have it, your kids and sibliings should be tested even if they are symptom free!  Celiac Disease has so many other issues that come with having it.  That's why having a proper diagnosis is important.  You will get the care you need.  Also, sticking to a life-long especially when you are older and it is hard to make changes in general (hey, I'm there!).    Your GP can actually order the celiac blood panel.  In addition, I would search around for another GI (one who is celiac savvy).   Here's a link regarding the exact tests: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I encourage you to read up on celiac disease.  Only you can be your best health advocate!  I wish you well!  Feel free to ask any questions!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
