Miss and bee, thanks for your support.
The frustrating part is that a number of non allergenic foods--most fruit--are nevertheless forbidden in a candida diet. But I include fruit a few times a week, because I do not think excessive consumption of Sugar was a major factor in the candida growth and there are not that many foods I can eat without allergic reaction anyhow .
And some foods supposed to fight candida produce strong allergic reactions/ Maybe it's die off but I am not willing to take the chance right now and traumatize my body needlessly.
Another frustration: denial from doctors. Most of them ignore candidiasis as a source of major toxicity for the body, and refuse to aknowledge this problem as a real disease.
I got more understanding--and less preconceived ideas-- from naturopaths but most of them, although more open, dont seem to have a clear, specific notion of the problem.
Also, the advice given to candida sufferers is sometimes confusing, downright contradictory or even dangerous, because not everybody reacts the same.For instance, I have read that regular exercice is important to fight candida. I try to walk 5 to 10 minutes a day, but if I do anything more strenuous now, I get the white coat on the tongue the next day and I feel more tired.
Not surprising: it is a well known fact that physical exercice taxes the immune system.
So everybody has to find out what works and what doesnt for her/himself...
