i love your question about candida. i have done candida diets for years... i never got better. i gave up and just began eating the healthiest that i could afford at any given time.
most candida people cringe at a question like that b/c it takes away a glimmer of hope that is left... but i applaud it!
and please know that i am not saying to go off your candida diet if one is able to live relatively happy with it... but for me, with a whole family to feed and very limited funds --- it was just making life very difficult and miserable for years. it added more stress to my life than most other things during the years i did it.
dont get the wrong idea though -- i dont go over board with what i eat.... i choose more healthy foods than most of the people i know--- but i no longer drive myself and my family crazy with it. and yes, i now even eat SANDWICHES made with some bread!!!
so i just loved your post sanctuary!--- in fact i always love all your posts!
