    Ive been ill for a few years and just with in the past few months I’ve come to understand that it is candida causing everything. I’ve been following another diet for a while now but find that when I progress to another phase it sets me back and I start to feel bad again. Im going to start your diet plan this weekend with the cleanse and then start the first phase next week. With Thanksgiving being next week do you have any recipes that I could make that wouldn’t make me feel as if I was being left out of the traditional Thanksgiving. Also is pumpkin out of the picture for the first phase (of course pumpkin pie is!)?

    Hey Sandra, can you help with the relieve of gas that you get from eating this diet. And it really gets trapped in my chest and under my shoulder blade. I continually take gas-ex, bean-no, Alka-Seltzer, antacid tablets. I know it the broccoli, cabbage and so on that I must eat, but I need some relief. having the die-off symptoms and gas is very painful and annoying. I have been on the diet for 3 weeks and taking probiotics, but have not taken any antifungal nor detox cleanse yet. unsure of what’s next, because of monthly income. please!!! help. kathy

      Hi Kathy, sorry for the late reply — I was on a camping holiday without internet access and only just got back. Well done for following the candida diet for 3 weeks- that’s really cool. I hope you are already starting to feel better for it. But as you mention, in the beginning there is a lot of die off pain… Re the gas issue: Often times you can also regulate it a bit by the amounts of probotics you take. Sometimes when your body is not used to it you can experience a lot of gas. This can happen with prebiotic foods like jerusalem artichokes as well. So perhaps try out a different strength or kind of probiotic. I would also recommend being physically active — exercise is key to relieve gas problems. There are also certain yoga poses you can do at home that give some relief, just google it. Other than that I know that some of my readers were taking Bromelain or other digestive enzymes that apparently help. I only took Swedish bitters which improves digestion overall. I’ve had a lot of trouble with trapped gas, so I totally know what you’re going through – it’s really horrible.

      I cannot pinpoint one thing that helped because I did so many things in parallel. But I can tell you the things that I think made a real difference:

      * First of all I noticed that eating less bread, pasta and cereal made it better.
      * Secondly not eating dairy and oats for a few days.
      * Not eating after 6pm. Moderate exercise in the afternoon/ evening.
      * Adding fennel seeds and cumin seeds to my cooking.
      * Eating homemade hummus and celery regularly as well as cooked brown rice to prevent constipation (also taking magnesium helped with that).
      * Not to eat cabbage, purple sprouting or onions in the evening.
      * Not eating spicy or oily food in the evening and in general smaller portions.
      * Taking slippery elm powder &marshmellow to heal leaky gut and soothe the digestive walls.
      * Legs up against the wall, massaging belly clockwise and breething deeply into the belly.
      * Drinking fresh chamomile tea throughout the day and in the evening is also very good to alleviate gas issues (or fennel tea, but chamomile tastes more pleasant…)

      Hope this helps, all my best

    Does no sugar include stevia?

      Hi Tom, technically Stevia is tolly fine on the diet. The only trouble is that most people by the time they start the diet even react sensitive to things that should actually agree with them.

      Also anything that tastes sweet impacts on your blood sugar in some way (even if only your brain is thinking hey I’ve had something sweet now) and then you normally get a taste for more which makes it much harder to stay on the diet.

      I personally didn’t use any sweeteners until several months into the diet and even then Stevia didn’t seem to agree with me. These days I use Vanilla Stevia drops combined with Xylitol – this then actually looks and tastes like sugar and seems to be ok in small amounts (I only use it in my oatmeal porridge at the weekend or when I make a birthday cake or something. When I just used stevia to make cake (and ate lots of it) that made me sick (more sick than I have ever been from eating sugary cake!). So I think moderation is the key with artificial sweeteners :)
