~ Food Has Power ~
I've been battling candida for about 7 years now. I've tried a number of different supplements and protocols. I have had a hard time sticking with the diet completely. The longest I've been really strict on it is for about 6 weeks. I have a number of immune system issues, one of which is autoimmune pancreatitis. I know if I could get this yeast under control, it would help my overall health immensely.
There are so many different opinions on the candida diet and different protocols or supplements to use. I'd like to get some advice or opinions from any of you on what to eat or not eat on the candida diet and what supplements or herbs, or protocols are really helpful.
I'm using water and milk kefir right now and am not sure if I should be or not. Some candida diets say no fermented things and I also eat fermented veggies, mostly cabbage.
I eat meat, organic beef and chicken, salmon. I do eat cheese, not sure if I should be or not. I eat Granny Smith apples and some berries, lots of raw and cooked veggies, and sometimes a red baked potato if I start to feel weak.
Any advice would be helpful. I also got my amalgam fillings out in Feb. of this year and am still doing some detox for that.
