I can guarantee a lot of people here aren't going to like your post, but I agree with a lot of what you said. I do believe to get well, I need to replace my flora in my gut and reduce my stress, but a lot of the things you said make sense about the diet. I think sometimes or more often, we need posts like yours to kind of snap us out of this viscious cycle we're in. People who swear by Candida diet...I am not trying to insult you or anything, I promise, I just think there's a difference between eating healthy and eating a Candida diet to the extreme. And I think there's being obsessed with your food and with me this happened, I ended up with food obsessions and binging and purging because of this whole stupid Candida thing. Mine was caused by the combo of lots and lots of Antibiotic drugs, birth control pills, pregnancy, Lyme disease and stress. Not food.
