Quote: "im on my first week im just wondering do i use Grapefruit-Seed-Extract
during step on the diet or on step 2 when i can reintroduce foods?"
Reply: Don't waste your money on Grapefruit-Seed-Extract
at all. Candida albicans can adapt to this antifungal just as they can many others.
“I was planning to for 3 weeks diet then 4 weeks reintroduction with Grapefruit-Seed-Extract
and step 3 for 2-3 weeks with syntol or at least when its done and then i stay eating healthy but dont with diet adding pasta... and so on and digestive enzymes”
Reply: You can't "Plan" on when you're going to change a diet until you've reached the point where it's safe to do so. The reason is because everyone is different and everyone has different degrees of the infestation, plus some have had the infestation for many years and others for a shorter period of time. Common sense tells you that the same timetable that works for one person will not work for all. Take it one day at a time, this is all you can do.
SYNTOL: Do NOT take this product as two of the enzymes that it contains (Cellulase & Hemicellulase) will inadvertently feed the Candida and cause the infestation to multiply.
“does this sound right?”
“first 3 weeks- grilled chicken, salad, avocados, lemon, almonds, and almond milk”
Reply: Leave out the almonds and almond milk until your Candida symptoms are reduced by a large number. Add all the green, fresh vegetables you can eat, either raw as in a salad, or lightly steamed.
Try to make organic eggs your main source of protein for as long as you can, chicken and young fish such as herring (sardines) are fine two to three times a week. But definitely leave out all red meat and pork.
No sodas (even diet) or tea and try to cut your coffee intake down until you can eliminate it all together.
Coconut flour bread can also be eaten from the beginning of the diet. Recipe below.
“next 4 weeks- adding potatoes, brown rice, peas, and meat with tomato sauce”
Reply: Potatoes should be the very, VERY last thing along with wheat and Sugar
that you add to your diet if at all. And this is at least three months after the Candida has been completely cured. Trust me in this, I myself tried adding a few foods too soon and my Candida became five times worse than before I started the diet. Don't make this mistake.
I've been Candida free for several months, and still I have not introduced the foods I just named, not even one.
“last 2-3 weeks -pasta, meatball and bread”
Reply: See above statement.
“any juice you can suggest me for the step 2 besides water.”
Reply: If you have or can obtain a juicer, it will be a definite plus as you can make fresh green vegetable juice and drink all of this you want to drink. You can also drink fresh lemon juice (lemonade) with Truvia used as a sweetener.
Check your toothpaste for Sugar
alcohols which can feed Candida just the same as regular Sugar
does. The ingredients in Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste should be alright for Candida sufferers. Amazon carries this brand.
Also, most table salt
s contain Dextrose which is glucose, which is a sugar capable of feeding the Candida. Himalayan Sea Salt
which is the purest form of salt with many life-sustaining minerals still intact and does not contain added ingredients.
DO NOT take enzymes as you can jeopardize your treatment if you choose the wrong enzymes. Instead, purchase only "Digestive Grape Bitters" and drop 1/2 dropper full on the tongue after each meal. This allows the body to make its own natural enzymes in the proper amounts that are needed.
After seven to ten days on the diet, start taking 1 teaspoon of organic coconut oil following one of your meals. After three days, add another teaspoon at another meal and another teaspoon 3 days later, continue this until you reach about ten teaspoons a day. This is an excellent antifungal and it also builds a perfect environment in the intestines to aid the Candida treatment.
For die-off symptoms purchase a product called Molybdenum. It will not only lessen the die-off symptoms a great deal, but it will also protect the already overworked liver from dangerous toxins released by the Candida. All of the information above plus more is found on the "Candida Diet" forum in easy to find posts. Just key in the name of the subject you’re interested in such as "Die off" and you'll be able to find plenty of information including lots of good Candida recipes.
Coconut Flour Bread Recipe:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
3/4 Teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup coconut flour (or you can blend in milled flax seed in place of part of the coconut flour to help with constipation. For example, use 1/4 cup of milled flax seed and 1/2 cup of coconut flour.)
Mix all ingredients together and put into an oiled glass loaf pan. Press down on the loaf making it firm in the baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes and test with a toothpick.
This is the beginning of the protocol that I used which eventually cured my Candida. Later I added a few antifungals and large doses of probiotics.
Good luck, Helmax
