Candida Diet

Recommended Posts

question about candida, if you had a serious acid reflux-type attack in the past and started getting sick, could it be possible to develop? definately seems it, i mean there has to be some type of infection that brews from all that, besides h.pylori

Hey Moldlady! Its April (hamola from YC)!

Glad to see you here!

April

Thanks so much April! I'm still fluttering around getting used to this forum. It seems I click here and there and end up places that I didn't want to go! Argh! :blink: It will take some time getting used to this format.

I kept the same name so that people here would know who I was as I see a few from YC have come over. Tee hee.... :P

Someone said something about acid reflux. It is fungus and you have to push it out with good human strain probiotics or kill it off with antifungals. AF is a terrible feeling and makes life miserable and scares some the first time into thinking they are having a heart attack as it can irritate that nerve that will excite the whole chest cavity. :(

I'm a big snacker/grazer. I eat small amounts nearly all day long, though not anything from about 7:30 pm to about 11am the next morning.

Here are things I snack on...hopefully some of it will be edible to some of you!

Avocado with rice crackers

Oatmeal (gluten-free) with butter and salt and flax seeds

1 Van's gluten-free waffle (this waffle and the oatmeal are the only grains I'm currently eating)

Unflavored goat yoghurt with a little honey, cinnamon, walnuts, flax seeds, and part of a fruit (grated apple, a little banana -- I try to keep my fruit intake to no more than one a day)

Smoked salmon salad (Whole Foods)

Slices of manchego cheese (sheep milk)

Handful of cashews

Carrots and home-made hummus

Leftover supper -- slice of turkey, bite of salmon, chicken pieces.

More soon!

Florence

P.S. I used to eat a lot of eggs and can't eat them right now, don't know why.

Thanks for the ideas, i might have to try homemade hummus, i know the stuff i bought once was so gross i threw it out lol. Im trying to think if avacadoes on rice cakes would taste good, do you smash it up and spread it or just put it on top. I want to start eating more avacados but they are so expensive, 2 for 8 for organic is just outrageous. When the regualr are on sale they are either so hard or so ripe, maybe i just need to start buying the hard ones then wait for them to ripen lolpaula

The hard avocados are the best to buy -- they really don't take that long to ripen. The overripe ones are gross.

I used to melt some sliced manchego cheese on a rice cake and then slice the avo on top and salt and pepper. But I'm not eating rice cakes right now -- just to keep the starch down. So I'm having a few very thin rice crackers (I forget the brand) with the avo. Or I just cut the avo in half and squeeze some lemon juice on and add salt and eat with a spoon.

I find on this diet I need to eat a LOT of fat and protein to keep from getting hungry ALL the time. So the avo is good. I put a LOT of butter in my oatmeal and on my Van's waffle. Also Thai coconut curry (with whatever in it) is good if not too spicy -- the coconut milk is satisfying and is supposed to be a good natural anti-fungal.

I'll get the recipe for the hummus I've been eating -- our babysitter makes it and shares it with us. It's the BEST thing I've ever tasted. It's nothing like the store kind, which I largely cannot stand.

I avoid nut butters altogether. I'll eat a handful of nuts -- although even the raw cashews smell vaguely moldy to me so I probably should stop. I do sometimes eat pumpkin seed butter with a tiny bit of fruit-only jam, with rice crackers. But I don't love pumpkin seed butter.

I sometimes cheat and eat salami (organic) -- pork is NOT a meat I generally eat and the salami has wine in it. But it's small amounts and it satisfies.

The other thing is that with all the other stuff I'm taking, sometimes I feel like I'm having snacks when I'm really just having supplements -- lemon water, raw garlic, Threelac, fiber in water, red clover tea, etc. So sometimes I think I'm hungry but after I do one of those, I'm not hungry any more and it gets me to the next meal.

Im addcited to almond butter, i need to go get some more today.

I didnt know we could have coconut milk, even tho i have not found one that i like yet anyway lol.

I know my nd said after 2 weeks i can add a little more in, i just havent wanted to yet.

April,

Maybe it is just the 3 of us I don't know. There may be others though because this is so huge and so many members. They may not have kept their same names for whatever reason.

I'm getting the feeling that I'm the only veggie eater around. It is tough eating phase I, and also having celiac problems, and 99 % plant based. I do have a hard boiled egg once and a while of the right organic kind. I have it right before bedtime and I think of it as a sleeping pill for me. But for the most part, I prefer not eating anything that comes from anything with eyes. :) It makes it very limited in the choices and I realize that most do not want to take this route to health.

I do believe though that with all the stuff going on in the food industry it is a way to good health. But, the road is slow going sometimes.

April, do these people here know about Bt corn? I thought maybe to post this information as it is so vital for people to know.

Best Love,

Moldlady :)

Moldlady,

I haven't seen much about BT corn, but I have mentioned it a few places about the mold problem and the GMO problem. If you look around there are a lot of people having problems with corn on this forum. Makes me think of the mold.

I think it would be very hard to be a vegetarian! Sometimes I try to steer myself to more vegetable only meals but I find I get hungry so fast. I require a protein with almost every meal. Especially if I am going to work out. I have even tried all veggie meals using avacado (for the fat) and I last longer that way, but I can still crash if I am not careful.

I don't require as much protein as I used to when the yeast were causing such hypoglycemic tendencies, so I have cut back and thats good!

Do you feel better now by cutting out glutenious grains? I thought you were gluten free already for some reason.

Yes, April,

You are correct. When I started feeling really good I added ww wraps back into my diet and pizza crust etc. Within weeks, I was not feeling well. I've since cut them out and feeling better.

Such a puzzle to try and figure out all the variables interacting. And, each person a different fingerprint.

I hope you are doing well....

Could be your not well enough yet to add the wheat back in OR maybe the long term exposure to mold caused a possible dormant celiac gene to become active. Yeast can cause this to happen as well.

I do better on wheat than I did a year ago, but still I can tell it stresses my body. I eat it occasionally anyway. I am hoping by getting the metals out that that will improve.

Do you do okay on other grains like Millett?

I know- its so confusing trying to figure it all out! :huh:

You can get tested www.enterolab.com for gluten antibodies and even genetic testing. I had the gluten and dairy antibody test done on my son and the gluten, dairy and genetics done on my daughter. Later I learned of the metals and yeast issues. So, although they had a very high number of gluten antibodies, I don't necessarily think they are celiac. Mainly, these tests helped convince my hubby that they needed to avoid those foods. If it wasn't for needing his support I don't know that I would have had them tested because results speak for themselves.

April,

I had some human probiotics last night... a good dose and about 6 hours later I got die off.. This surprised me as usually when I eat raw onion or garlic that would cause a die off reaction and I had not gotten this all week. But the probiotics caused it. Somewhere still in my small intestine I must have a deep tissue seed of fungus that has not completely been killled off. So, I'm back very serious and doing antifungals and phase I and probiotics at night. I think the rest of me is pretty good however! My antifungal strong herbs will get that patch I'm sure if I'm faithful. I'm going to up the doseage to pack a bigger punch for a month. Then, test things again.

I must tell you April that it took me 20 min. to find your post. I may have to wait until I have high speed to continue on this web site. So many people and long time to load each page. I'd really like to be more active but the old dial up goes so slow.

I will frequent the old YC as it loads fast and is very uncomplicated......

See you there......

What's YC?

Do you know is the mold issue with corn only for the dried processed corn by-products or for fresh corn as well?

Catesfolly,

I really like this site but my old machine and dial up impairs much. I just spotted your question so I will give a try to answer as best as possible here.

Corn has many problems. Corn is universally impregnated with fungus. Fresh corn and popcorn are included. Popcorn is 1 ppm better than regular corn.

Back in the 80s all farmers knew this and admitted that they cannot control the mold in the corn. I think I read this around 1983 Acres U.S.A. magazine. It blew me away. I then had some experience in the old corn bins and saw it for myself.... a layer of green mold on the bottom of the corn about a foot and a half up from the ground and a top layer like a shelf on top of all the corn. When the corn is taken out, the layer of green mold breaks up and falls down into the corn. The bottom layer is shoveled out and workers see it. The corn is fed to animals and to humans. The animals consume active mold and mycotoxins that is incorporated into their fat. Humans eat the mycotoxins and the liver and kidneys must detoxify.

Peanuts, pistachios, dried fruits, coffee, chocolate beans, cigarettes, are loaded with mold and mycotoxins. I'm sure I'm listing many of the things that people love and do not want to give up.:( I was there too at one time but being healthy and feeling healthy is more important now for me.

The danger with white sugar, white rice, white flour, and all the processed flours is that they feed the fungus that is already in your body and then they start to produce their own mycotoxins in the system. People that are on overload get all kinds of diseases and symptoms of "unknown" causes. For example, anyone that is "allergic" to penicillen is already on toxic overload with mycotoxins and is at risk down the road for many things.... Some day I can go further on this...

A topic I want to warn people about on this site is Bt corn. This was tested and genetically formulated in the 80s and cross pollinated and contaminated all species of corn in the 90s. This is very dangerous and people are not being told.

Moldlady is very knowledgeable!

Here is the link http://www.websitetoolbox.com/mb/kiddredd. You can't find the discussion board anymore by going to yeastconnection.com. They sent around a notice that it would no longer be supported, but for some reason whoever had the board in their favorites - are able to still access the site. So a lot of us are still there although its slow over there.

Hi Paula,

Thank you for your nice words and I will be back maybe in 6 months when I get high speed. The old YC is still there if you have the link.... http://www.websitetoolbox.com/tool/mb/kiddredd

We are pretty much on our own and there are a few of us that are there daily and others check in maybe once a week for updates and things.

I take Natren's healthy trinity because they are human probiotics. They are a bit more expensive but really push out the bad guys if you know what I mean. I've taken other probiotics and never noticed anything different for months. Natren's must produce something that really gets the fungus out. They have an oil built into them that makes sure they make it to the intestines. They are expensive but I save a bit on cost because I culture my own and save it.

April,

Thank you for that comment and I hope I can live up to it. When one gets sick and the doctors can't help you anymore you really start to study study study. Now, it is my goal to help others by telling them what I have found out. Some will believe quickly but others need to have the proof before they believe. I was a bit stubborn and had to have proof before I believed. Hopefully, I can provide both to people that are struggling to be well naturally and keep their families well.

April, from my experience, you are also very well informed and I'm glad you are here helping others.

That makes so much sense. I started to feel really bad when i started to smoke again, and not since i have quit i feel so much better. I know mold is very bad for me cause of all the mold we had in the house a year or 2 ago. And that could be why beans make me so sick, its not an intolerance its cause of the mold. And that is why i got so sick when i ate pisachios last week.

Are there any other things that i need to stay away 100 percent. Right now im just eating basic and feeling awesome and i want to continue feeling this way. My nd says i have a really bad case of candida.

Paula,

Sometimes the desire to feel better and to be well is the motivating factor. I'm so glad that you were able to get rid of smoking. I've been there too. When I found out how they "brew" the tobacco it made me sick. They take the bitterness taste out of the tobacco by putting it in large vats with sugar and aspergillus fungus. It ferments and takes the bitterness out of the tobacco. When you smoke the fermented tobacco you take those mycotoxins into your lungs and it causes cancer. Back in the 1800s this was not done to the tobacco and people hardly ever died of lung cancer from cigs. They died of emphasema or something else.

I don't quite understand about the beans. Most beans are pretty well protected from mold and mycotoxins. I do however cook them in the crock on low and rinse the water often to get rid of the oligosaccharides that feed fungus and produce the gas. Then, I make a salad out of them with lots of fresh veggies and my home made dressing that is a marinade.

The only other thing I can think of that is high sugar and goes fungal fast are bananas. They are also high in latex if anyone is allergic/sensitive to latex. They will get lots of sores in the mouth from bananas.

I just found out that instant coffee has gluten in it. I didn't know that one! I guess they put it in there to prevent caking. Argh!

I guess if someone were just starting out I'd say to eliminate these three foods first: bananas, peanuts & their products, corn and their products.

It's almost a no brainer to stay away from cigs and alcohol that are loaded with mycotoxins that will put your body in toxic overload...... and worse things down the road. I know it is tough when you are hooked to these things but being healthy feels better. Once one can understand the mycotoxin link to these things it makes it easier to stop.

Best of Luck,

moldlady :)

Moldlady,

Thanks for all that info. I dont really like bananas so im all good there, They actually make me gag and get sick, even tho im not sure why.

Maybe im not cleaning the beans good enough, we get them from a bean farmer and he dont clean them before we get them since my dad buys 500 pounds, he gives them to people for christmas lol. I will for sure clean them teh next time i make them.

I have smoked and quit many times in my life. I started to smoke when my neighbor died from an heart attqack brought on my smoking, i know it was dumb for me to start back up. Then i thought well i will continue cause i dont want to gain weight back that i have lost. I was so afraid i would gaine 10 pounds when i quit, and in all actuallity i lost 3 pounds. Now after reading what u said about digarettes, i will never look back again. I think im going to copy that and save it for next time i think i need to start back up.

thanks

Moldlady you are a wealth of information!

I always wondered why poeple get cancer from cigs now more than before. I thought maybe it was all the additives.

I quit years ago and had a little trouble with the occasional cig before I got pregnant with my second child.

Now I am quit for good. I don't think my body could handle it.

Paula, You probably lost weight this time because of being on the candida diet. I lost 25 pounds in about 2 months when I started a very strict candida diet. I can't say it was all "fat" but also maybe inflammation that went down.

Now that I have added some foods back and not as strict, I have gained some weight back.

I am thinking of going back on phase I to get rid of it. Its very hard to back track though.

Well if i am going to gain it back im sticking on this diet for life lol. I actually lost more weight when i started the gluten free lifestyle. The only thing i dont eat now is chips, starburst and skittles that i was eating before this candida diet.

I know as far as my stomach i have lost inflamation and not fat, so that is a good thing in my book. My nd never gave me phases, just told me this is what i can and cant eat for 6 months. How long do phases last?

what i eat is

i large glass of lemon water as soon as i get up

around 10, scrambled eggs cooked in olive oi sometimes half of grapefruit with it or i have it for snack somedaysl

lunch leftover from dinner, either salmon, steak or chicken with an veggie

snack around 3 is an apple and almond butter

dinner is meat, baked potato and veggie

What phase would this be, would i have to get rid of the fruit to be in phase 1.
