Candida Diet

Recommended Posts

Is emergen-c safe to take on the diet, i was thinking of getting some cause its gluten free?

I think it may have sugar in it...some of them do, but not sure if they have an unflavored one.

I haven't forgotten about posting the diet thing, but I'm looking at it and it's much longer than I remember, so I may wait until Monday so I can scan it at work. :P

Also, I think it was you that asked about the turkey sausage...the brand is Shelton. I finally found the patty style today, it's just turkey, sea salt and spices (but gluten free).

April, this is kind of off the candida topic, but seeing as you mentioned it on this thread...do you use the charcoal to help get rid of the metals that you've moved with the rest of your programme? When do you take the charcoal in relation to everything else?

Thanks!

The charcoal would be good for candida die off as it porduces many toxins. Be sure you take it about 2 hours away from any other meds or supplements. It will absorb those as well. I usually mix mine in with my fiber and take it before bed.

But if you are having issues mid-day you can take it then too.

Just FYI, over on in the low oxalate world, we don't take much Vit C because it is very high oxalate and can be further damaging to the gut in high doses. 250 mg/day is okay, but I think that Emergen-C stuff is 1,000 mg. I'd go easy on it. There are other anti-oxidants -- like E and A and Coenzyme Q10 that can be substituted.

Okay, well, I'm at about day ten on this candida diet and am now totally PLUGGED UP -- which is not my normal state. It feels awful when this happens -- like I'm just sitting here filling up with toxins. I've done two rounds of fiber, tons of water, very little food (there's no room for more!), lots of yoga, and nothing's moving. Ah well....

Heres a link to an informative radio program regarding candida overgrowth.

(scroll down to "Clearing up the Candida Confusion").

http://www.biohealthinfo.com/html/resources/airwaves.html

This is some good info but unfortunately one importnat aspect is not mentioned. That would be the link between mercury and candida.

I started out my journey seeing some Dr.'s who are very knowledgeable about every issue in these radio programs...they utilize the BioHealth services and most likely had some training from the Dr. interviewed in this program.

After 8 months they were unable to get to the root of my problem and I had not made any progress. I was referred to a Dr. who specializes in mercury detox. From that point on I have been with Dr.'s who have made the best decisions regarding my treatment...and I have come a long way. :)

This quote is taken from the website of one of my practitioners.

Is the presence of mercury amalgam fillings a source of heavy metal toxicity for the body?

There is a growing body of evidence to support the opinion that mercury in our mouths in the form of fillings pollutes our organs with heavy metals.

We have found in our BioSET

I listened to the thing Rachel posted also, and one thing I thought was interesting was the test d-arabanitol. I actually had that done because Dr. H ordered it for me, but I thought some people on here may be interested in having it done. He said it is a huge deal as far as diagnosing Candida.

Paula, here is the stuff my doctor gave me eons ago. Please note that this is geared more toward MOLD, not candida necessarily. I have a huge issue with mold (I'm highly allergic to it environmentally, and I have high levels of antibodies to it in my blood), so this was given to me for avoiding things I might cross-react to. Even with this list, my doctor strayed from what was on it MANY TIMES, especially in regards to the antibiotics--he was the allergist/ENT who prescribed basically three years of antibiotics for a never-ending sinus infection!

I do think I have something from him that was more geared towards Candida...I still have to locate THAT, lol. But this is good for determining what might cross-react (not everyone will).

Aprilh, That GI testing that you had done, was that a test that you had done on your own, like enterolab, or does the Dr have to order it for you? janet

I didn't have it done. Someone on Yeast Connection Forum had it done and really had good results knowing exactly what she was dealing with. I wish now that I had done something like that. I feel like I am grasping at straws sometimes.

I think Genova Diagnostics does those type tests as well. My ND would be able to order either.

Hey you guys,

I've been dealing with a fair amount of nausea in the last week -- it's been about two weeks on the candida diet now. It seems better when I eat, but it's like morning sickness (and no, I'm not pregnant!) in that the nausea only subsides literally while I'm eating.

You all having anything like this? Nausea is not normally a GI symptom I have. Is this a typical yeast die-off symptom, does anyone know?

Thanks!

Florence

Well i have felt the same way all day, i had thought cause i forgot to eat, well then i did eat and 30 minutes later i got nasuated, and i know im not pregnant lol.

I have been in bed since about 11 today, cause i dont feel good. Even tho i had a great few hours this morning.

Maybe someone will know if it is a die off symptom, ive only been on it for 6 days, but if this a die off and it has lasted u an week, im scared to continue feeling like this.

I haven't felt nausea this time, but the first time I did the candida diet, I felt slightly nauseated.

Well, this is reassuring to hear (I think?) that you all have dealt with nausea too on this diet.

I thought about my liver as well -- I've been taking milk thistle and red clover tea for liver tonic -- maybe it's under a load from processing toxins?

I'll go poke around on google and see what I can find out about yeast die-off symptoms. The nausea is a total drag, as you all know. It just affects everything all day long.

:lol: I agree Paula...it would be great if we could just feel good right away, lol. Unfortunately those stupid "bugs" create all kinds of toxins, both when they are alive and when they die, and that's what makes us feel worse before we get better. Stupid bugs! :angry:

Paula,

I forgot but are you doing antifungals? If you are doing more than 1 at the time, you may want to back off a bit and let your body deal with the toxins that it already has. Then once you feel better, you can bump it up a notch.

Lemon water is good for the liver. Helps cleanse the liver and kidneys. Unless, of course, you have a citrus allergy!!

Definatley under a toxin load. Sweating, dry skin brushing, detox baths. All that kind of stuff might help. The milk thistle and tea sound like a good plan.
