Candida is often quite an alternative/controversial diagnosis.
I did try this once, not sure how beneficial it was but was fairly miserable. I used a book called Candida albicans by Leo chaitow iirc. I was diagnosed by a kinisiologist (which I now think is utter bollocks).
I may have helped my migraines a bit. But I have found just following a lie carb diet in general has helped my migraines, energy levels, ibs, allergies and endometriosis so may be something in it I guess!
(I follow atkins principles btw. There are lots of things I eat that probably wouldn't be allowed on a candida diet such as mushrooms, Quorn, artificial sweeteners, cheese etc. I have found that just reducing my carb/grain consumption has helped me no end)
I did the candida diet for a couple of months when I'd had recurring thrush for over a year. I stuck to it rigidly as I was so fed up, but I'm not sure it helped. I ended u going back to the doctors and getting all the different thrush treatments and blasting it! I'm currently doing no sugar but not seeing any results so far (apart from weight loss!)
I'm honestly not sure what to believe or think anymore There is obviously something wrong with me but my GP can't find anything and just gave me the umbrella diagnosis of IBS. However I don't think I have IBS since I get symptoms whenever I eat ANYTHING and not just certain foods.
I was hoping to hear that it helped some people
Did you guys use anti-fungals and probiotics alongside the diet?
I've struggled with thrush for a couple of years and having just had.surgery a couple of weak ago with all the pills and antibiotics, it hS come back really bad. I did the dukan diet a couple of years ago and felt great on it and this is pretty much sugar free. I've decided to start this again today and see if it helps.
