How would a candida detox diet look like? Protein, yogurt and no fruit? Wrong! Dead wrong.
Instead it should be like any other good detox diet, fruit couled with green drinks - and that's it! leave out all the rest for as long as you feel you can. Maybe 7 days or 15 or even 21!
GRAINS AND MEAT
You see, if you eat a lot of breads, and even rice and meat as well as milk, you are inviting a lot of fermentation and candida into the body. And feeding whatever is already there! often because of the way we choose to combine foods, but often also because of how the food naturally acts in the body - for example turning into a simple sugar.
And because most of us do eat that way, most of us also have serious candida issues. When candida is present in the gut it can block absorption of nutrients so you do really need it out of there.
Gas is a result of fermentation when it comes to grains and putrefaction when it comes to meat. When you have a lot of gas - it means candida is present.
The answer? Eating fresh foods. Salads, raw dishes, smoothies, juices. Or go on a candida detox diet and then you are done with it! As long as you keep eating fairly healthy and combine your food well afterwards.
Did you know that gas can also be the rsult of sulfur in the food recting with the candida!
Sulfur containing foods most often make the candida worse. So that would for example be garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, coconut milk where carrageen has been added, eggs, meat and so on.
'Anytime my boyfriend is over he likes to make curries. He uses coconut milk, onion, garlic, broccoli or cauliflower and some other veggies. Both me and him often have mad gas after those meals and we never really knew why! Until I understood it's the sulfur. It's basically a sulfur soup he is making! It tastes good, but unfortunately that sulfur is not helping my candida eroding efforts. So no more cruciferous veggie curries for me'.
One thing that really helps is drinking tea made out of an herb called Pau D'Arco. I have started drinking that tea now and it's helping to kill the rest of the Candida. You can drink it starting on day 1 of your candida detox diet.
'During most of my own detox diets I've been on, I have passed a lot of mucous from the gut. And I know that means I have a candida problem that I'm still fighting. But my fresh diet now has almost removed all of it'.
