Is Candida making your life a misery?
Finding out that you have candida can be quite a shock for many people. Although getting rid of the myriad of symptoms which accompnay Candida is an exciting prospect the road to getting rid of Candida altogether can be a very long one especially if you are facing the challenge by yourself. For years now, articles in the popular press, specialist cook-books and specialist websites have all described their own versions of the anti-candida diet. Each regime seems more restrictive than the last one. Who to believe then? What is really necessary?
My personal experience of Candida suggests that very strict anti-candida diets whilst appearing very logical, can result in misery as the patient becomes increasing depleted in every sense, nutritionally and emotionally and this makes compliance difficult and unpleasant. A couple of years ago I heard of a new concept which I found very appealing and have since adopted with my patients looking to rid themselves of Candida. Quite simply, they adopt a healthy eating, low glycaemic style of eating which cuts out refined foods and white sugars whilst allowing some low carbohydrate fruits and the occasional glass of wine or treat. It’s a regime which is much more socially acceptable and combined with a robust immune boosting and candida eradication supplement plan, good results can be achieved.
