candida diet, candida diet tips
The primary goal of an effective candida diet is to support healing and detoxification through a nutritionally-balanced diet that is low in carbohydrates. The ideal diet for CRC recovery reduces or eliminates hard-to-digest foods that stress the digestive system as well as allergens and toxins that suppress the immune and nervous systems.

Candida Diet: Two Steps Healthy, One Craving Back

Indulgence in misguided cravings such as those for sugar or excess starch will fuel more cravings. Once indulged craving can expand to the point that it becomes insatiable and can lead to binge eating. So we are well advised to choose our ‘treat’ foods carefully to include only those that we can exercise self control with while avoiding those that ‘unhinge’ us.

Candida Diet - Tarilee's Top Ten Social Tips for Thriving

Almost every culture in the world connects around food, especially during the Holidays. The experience of eating differently amidst the expectations, curiosity and confusion of those around you will almost certainly challenge your social graces at some point. But with a little preparation, you can reduce any related stress and thus preserve your success on your program.

Given how hard you’ve worked to create positive change in your health, it can come as a surprise that your friends and family might be less enthusiastic than you had hoped about your changes.  A little patience with their reactions can go a long way.   For those who like to lovingly prepare your favorite foods or those who enjoy your company over the experience of a mutually favorite meal, your new foods will represent significant change for them as well.

Candida Diet - The Indulgence of Good Health Through the Holidays

Cravings for unhealthy foods represent a significant challenge to our healthy path when we get together with family and friends who are less aware of, and less sensitive to, the health impacts of our food choices. When our new food habits are offered up (through togetherness) to the scrutiny of others, it can be difficult to know how to respond to questions or criticism. Without trying to change others around you, I encourage you to find your own tactful strength and to focus inwardly on your knowledge about which foods will have the greatest benefit to the quality of your time with loved ones. Is it the two minutes of bliss from indulging in a craving or is it the fun you will have because you feel so good from making self loving food choices.

Candida Diet - Is It Important?

In the 27 years that WholeApproach has been representing the Attogram products, a significant percentage of our customers has innocently asked the question; Is it important to watch my diet while I am treating Candida? The answer to that question is: YES! We realize that there are products on the market that promise a candida cure without having to change a thing; not all that different from the diet pills that promise weight loss without changing eating and exercise habits. Without making the necessary dietary changes, success, if any, is limited and short-lived. Feeding the yeast over-growth as you are trying to reduce the population will keep you from reaching your treatment goals and may assist the yeast organisms in developing resistance to treatment.

IS THERE A LESSON FOR YOU IN YOUR CRC?

Many people who have recovered from CRC report that the illness taught them how to truly take care of themselves. Many of us, in fact, spend our whole lives taking care of others and putting the needs of others before our own. Is CRC present in your life to teach you to honor your own needs and learn to accept your limitations? Has it arrived to help you begin practicing the self-care that you need to insure a long life and the fullest possible self actualization?

The role of chemicals and processing in your response to foods

Pesticide-residues or irradiated foods may cause reactions in some people. Organically grown foods that are not sprayed or treated may be well tolerated while their conventionally-produced counterparts cause symptoms. Packaging additives may be made from allergenic substances such as cornstarch used to powder cereal bags and milk cartons.

How can I determine if I have food allergies?

There are a number of medical and non-medical approaches to allergy testing, none of which are going to tell you all of the foods that may hinder your health or even all of the foods that you might have a significant reaction to.

Candida-Related-Complex and Food Allergies, Part I

by TL Cornish, Certified Nutritional Practitioner

Food allergies, food intolerance and candida commonly go hand in hand. Candida myceila (in its fungal form) causes damage to your intestinal lining which can worsen or trigger food intolerance and allergies.  This can increase food and environmental allergies and intolerance. 

Symptoms of food intolerance may include any one of many physical, mental or emotional responses. Identifying a relationship to a food, a combination of foods or an environmental condition requires some sleuthing and, likely the help of a food diary.
