I hope you haven't left the board here. I'd hate to see that. There's a lot of info and support to be gained by all the collective years of experience by these candida posters.
I would, however, have to agree with all the "candida and fruit" issues remi pointed out.
One question, though: Why do YOU think you're having symptoms? Just curious what you may have figured out and if what you are now doing seems to be helping. Have you found some relief yet? Hope so.........
One universal understanding about candida is that Sugar
feeds it. One apple can feed billions of candida spores to reproduce (or replicate) billions more. Foods that contain "sugar" in varying concentrations, listed on the glycemic index in order of Sugar
Sugar (corn, cane, beet)
Fruit (some higher than others)
Grains (some higher than others)
Veggies Winter (potato, winter squash, corn, beets, carrots, parsnip, includes peas though they are summer.)
Veggies Summer (summer squashes, beans, lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, etc.)
That's a VERY rough list, but you get the idea of Sugar
content. The lower on the list, the less sugar or carbs to feed the candida. I know you must know this already. On the diabetic diet blueberries are a fruit because of the sugar content, even though it's a lower glycemic index fruit. But it's still a fruit, regardless of its herbal and medicinal properties.
It's very scary to find out all of a sudden there's more things needing elimination from one's diet. Imagine having to take insulin for diabetes and balance blood sugars and find foods to balance the blood sugar and insulin without fruit or sugar of any kind. This was me and I did it. And Sans Sucre is doing it too. My diet was already very limited when I realized I had to make further restrictions.
I never take for granted what any of my docs has told me, even my trusted environmental doc whom i saw last week. He has given me useful advice many times, but last week I told him that I disagreed with him on one point and he did muscle testing and found out I was right. So we persevered on another tack, another idea he offered. The point is, just because one is a nutritionist, ND, chirpractor, MD it doesn't always mean they are right. Question everything and weigh possibilities based on logic. If you agree then fine, if you don't then do it your way. That's been my rule of thumb. If something works for you, do it. If that something makes you feel crappy, then do something else. Nothing is written in stone. But if you're having symptoms and you ask advice, I've offered some in good spirit. Hope you take it that way. I have every wish for your wellness. I wouldn't have written so much if I didn't care. Be well........... nancy
