One of the biggest problems with beating candida is sticking to the anti-candida diet. The most common question that I get asked via email is “Did you really stick to the diet?”. The answer is a resounding “yes!”. I was desperate to get better and I was getting to the point where I would have tried almost anything to regain my health (By the way if you are struggling check out my main website pages which have plenty of tips for following the anti-candida diet including little ‘cheats’ to keep you sane! > main candida site)
One of the best ways of sticking to the anti-candida diet is to plan your meals (VERY important) and to eat vary your food by eating seasonally. I still aim to eat seasonally even though the candida has long gone. But I am always a tiny bit worried that it may return so I try to maintain good health. So I was interested to read an update today on Dr Mercola’s website about the health benefits of eating seasonally. Not only does it introduce variety into your diet but it also has nutritional benefits too. > read Dr Mercola’s Fabulous Fall Foods
Dr Mercola explains the benefits of many of the vegetables available now which is great news for anyone following the candida diet. All I need to do now is learn how to find some tasty recipes and learn how to use my new soup maker!
One word of caution though. One of the best Fall foods are apples. Now I did eat an apple per day when I was on the anti-candida diet. But I dont think you should over do it fruit-wise. Why did I eat apples? Well if you have followed my blog over the years you will know that I followed the instructions of my Naturopath. He felt strongly that one of the biggest barriers to getting rid of candida is constipation. The candida is mostly in the gut and it needs to be disposed of. If you are not using the toilet regularly then the candida stays in your body and grows stronger. So for me the solution was a daily apple which helped to keep me regular and the candida was eventually beaten. I do get occasional emails from candida sufferers who don’t seem to believe that I got better eating a daily apple. Well I did! Some of them can be quite irate so I daren’t tell them that I also use to eat peanut butter! I didn’t know it was regarded as a ‘banned’ food for candida sufferers. All I can think now is that my overall regime was effective at destroying the candida and the occasional apple or peanut butter didn’t not impact upon this.
