Candida Symptom Assessment Questionnaire Quiz
The WholeApproach® diet recommendations are customized by you to address your individual needs. Everyone starts their program at different levels of wellness and as they move along their healing journey, they improve at different rates. It only makes sense to follow a program that is as unique as you are.
This candida diet protocol utilizes a weekly Candida Symptom Questionnaire (Quiz) upon which to base your ongoing diet recommendations and transitions. Rather than insisting that you stay on the strictest of candida diets for the entire recovery period, the new guide will help you to decide when you are well enough to experiment with the reintroduction of a less stringent diet.
This Candida Questionnaire will help you maintain objectivity about your progress while enhancing your self-awareness. Using the Candida Questionnaire as a way of measuring your progress helps to determine when to reintroduce restricted foods and eventually, when to transition to a healthy maintenance regimen.

Note: A mild or moderate score is not a definite diagnosis of Candida overgrowth, as other conditions can produce similar symptoms; for example - menopause irregularities, endocrine imbalances, autoimmune conditions, viruses etc. Although many of these conditions are frequently associated with accompanying yeast infestations, treating the yeast overgrowth will lighten the load on your immune system, regardless of the source of your symptoms.
