Welcome to my Candida Diet Blog

Let me tell you a bit about me & how you get the most out of this website

How I was able to get my Candida Symptoms under Control by Following a Strict Diet

Hi my name is Sandra. 6 years ago I was very ill.

My GP could not help me, a specialist gave me steroids and made it worse. A naturopath and homeopath failed to see what was wrong with me.

So I took my health into my own hands.

To cut a long story short, I changed my lifestyle and followed a special diet which helped me get back on track – It’s called the Candida Diet.

Let me Share with You my Experience with the Candida Diet including my Exact Journey to Recovery

  • You can read about every treatment I tested. Which remedies worked and which didn’t.
  • I share with you what side effects the medication had on me and what I did to minimise these.
  • You’ll learn what recipes keep your cravings at bay and what dishes taste awful that you really don’t need to bother with.
  • I’ll show you what the consequences are if you don’t stick to the Candida diet.
  • I’ll break all this down for you into each body part/ illness so you can quickly browse to the aspect in your body that is troubling you at the moment.

Knowing how long you might be handicapped for is a huge advantage when planning your life around your recovery activity.

And truth be told, you can heal your body yourself – naturally! Only few people ever try it – Are you one of them?

Before you read on here are 2 important things I need you to know:

1. Firstly, as much as I had loved to launch my site already filled with all the cool candida resources I’ve gathered – it didn’t happen. Life and my day job got in the way.

What this means is that this stuff you’re about to read is a bit like a road map. It’s not quite the real deal. It just gives you an idea of the cool stuff that’s in store for you. At this moment what’s on this site is only a snap shot of the full content that I will be posting here over the next 4 months.

So in case you’re wondering where all the recipes and remedies are that I mention here – they are on their way. Please bear with me.

2. Secondly, if you follow my health recommendations, you need to understand that I’m not a qualified health practitioner. Just someone who dedicated 5 years of their life to extensive research and home study.

But judging from the reports and photos of my steady recovery – I must have been doing something right, don’t you think?

Here on this site are my very own down to earth tips for your health & healing. I hope they help you avoid spending lots of money on treatments that are not right for you.

The main things you can learn here about The Candida Diet:

● What is Candida? How do you get it?

● How a Candida Cleanse can help you and what a yeast free diet actually looks like

● What foods can you eat? Plus some delicious & easy to cook Candida Diet Recipes

Not any odd recipes but plenty of healthy menus for looking slim & feeling awesome!

How My Story relates to You

Only by accident I found out that my health problems were all caused by yeast infections (candida). Since then I have been devoted to studying holistic medicine and nutrition.

Knowing what food triggers inflammation and what natural remedies calm down flare ups is the key to healing.

I learned what the body needs to operate healthily. And what hinders healing and makes people ill.

I found home remedies that not only cure all symptoms of a yeast infection. But also most common ailments.

It has taken me 2.5 years to get better. Years of trial and error. Treating Candida with a simple change of diet and natural remedies.

A diet that can help you, too.

I am virtually healed now. It might take me 3 more months, maybe 6 – depending on how radical I’ll stick to the candida diet plan.

I still get the odd flare up when I eat very sugary foods. But I am not bothered by that. I can get this under control with antifungal medication within a matter of days.

The long-term plan is to avoid easily falling into a relapse. At the time of writing this (spring 2012) I expect this to take another year of low carb maintenance diet.

What is a year in the big scheme of things – Time flies!

I’m in no rush though, as I KNOW I’ll eventually cure it completely. Right now I just take it easy sometimes and enjoy foods that I’m not supposed to.

The main thing for me now is that I look healthy and feel better than I have in years!

The candida diet plan I am following told me accurately how long it would take me to be fully healed.

I’m well on target, and it’s comforting to know that I’ll soon be 100% candida symptom free.

And if I can, so can YOU!

Do you like to live a rich life, enjoying social eating & drinking with your friends occasionally, too?

If your answer is yes and you are looking for an effective candida diet you can do parallel to your busy work life and personal commitments then this is the one for you.

It’s not a quick fix. It’s a gradual holistic approach and it kicks !@#$%^&* J

Fancy joining me for the ride? You’ll have your work cut out to overtake me ;-) Try me!

I have achieved an insane amount of healing in the past 2.5 years of candida diet:

  • cured chronic sinuses infections
  • ear infections
  • asthma
  • bronchial infections
  • cold sores
  • throat infections
  • hay fever attacks
  • food intolerances
  • insane cravings
  • migraine
  • eye infections
  • swollen eye lids
  • a severe case of eczema that covered my entire body
  • stomach pain
  • acid reflux
  • insomnia
  • abdominal bloating
  • excessive gas
  • constipation
  • piles
  • thrush
  • cystitis
  • vaginitis
  • HPV outbreaks/cervical cell changes
  • irregular bleeding
  • IBS
  • depression, panic attacks
  • stiff joints
  • over-acidity in the body
  • allergic blisters and tennis ball size swellings
  • edema in the lower legs and feet to name but a few.

Beat that!

Hi, I suffered from candida for 5years, i was at a point of despair as doctors told me nothing was wrong with me but i knew there was. After trying to find out and in desperate need of help I came across an holistic centre which confirmed candida and provided me with supplements and diet plan. I was so much better and felt great, but now several years later after having two children and slipping back into very bad eating habits thinking that candida has gone away for good, i can feel it creeping up to eat away at me again. I need to fight back and start my diet as soon as possible although this time round Im feeling the strain as I dont have the time and the money like I use too and feel as though I cant do it!! Im hoping by reading your website it will give me a kick in the right direction!! Any hints and tips as to how to dedicate a change while trying to cope in a busy lifestyle with children, were snacks are my worst enemy will be much appreciated, thankyou x


Sandra January 7, 2013 at 10:03

Hi, I know what it feels like to start the diet on a shoestring with a demanding life pulling you in all different directions! It’s incredibly challenging. But you’re not alone in this. There’s a small but tight-knit community here to help you get started and motivate you when times get tough.

Are you on Facebook? I’m setting up a private Facebook group for people who are just starting with the candida cleanse. Become my FB friend (Sandra Boehner) and I’ll send you an invite :-) And there’s constantly new candida diet tips and recipes on the FB page, too. Not to mention the healthy snacks ideas on the Candida Diet Recipes pages. But that’s a lot to take on board. Just start with one thing, replace one old habit, one unhealthy snack, prepare one big soup…. small steps…

The most important thing is to get into the right mindset though: Realise that this is going to be an uphill battle that might throw you back at times. So be patient and good to yourself. Find little rewards to motivate you regularly and create breathing space so you can gather the strength to go through with this. You can do it!!!

If I have to use Symbicort and ventolin daily will the candida diet still work for me?


Sandra March 2, 2014 at 18:34

Hello Harriet, I have never heard of those meds so I couldn’t tell you, I’m afraid. The diet should still work though, as Candida is mostly regulated by what foods you eat.


  Mickey April 2, 2014 at 22:39

My acupuncturist has me on a candida diet and is sure I have leaky gut.
My frustrations are that I have so many food sensitivities, and am so limited on what I can eat. She has taken me off of grains, beans, legumes, rice, anything with starch. I’m allergic to tomatoes, dairy, vinegars, eggs, spinach, green beans, soy, pineapple, corn, and of course gluten.
My diet is organic meat and veggies, excluding: carrots, potatoes, yams, yellow squash. Plus a lot of the food that you say is alright to eat is off of my list. I’m going crazy….
When I see candida recipes, they usually include ingredients that I can’t eat. Going out to dinner is impossible.
Any suggestions or advice?


Sandra April 23, 2014 at 18:05

Hi Mickey, that is indeed a super strict diet you’re on, oh my! I hope your acupuncturist has allowed you a bit more variety now…
I know how difficult it is to follow an exclusion diet! I in fact reacted to most of the foods you mentioned there, even meat and gluten free grains like millet, buckwheat and quinoa!
Once your digestive system had recovered you’ll be able to start eating more foods. What about chickpeas and chickpea/ garbanzo beans flour – could you make a grain free quiche with that – it’s very tasty -just soften a few veggies in a little oil in a frying pan with a bit of seasoning and pour a batter made from chickpea flour and water on top – looks like a frittata/ oven omelet and is very nice and allergy friendly generally. Failing that, I’d have some coconut pancakes :)
If you go out for dinner I’d order chicken salad (unless it comes with a cheesy or sugary dressing) or fish with vegetables. It’s tricky though, you best prepare your own food for the time being…
All my best
