Hey Hadenuff29, I was wondering what exactly made up your Candida Diet. I do know that generally the diet consists of staying away from anything with Sugar or yeast in it, so basicly, it appears that most of the diet is comprised of only or mostly vegetables and supplements, am I correct?
I've tried the candida diet and unfortunately didn't last as long as you because I had gotten so desperate to find a quicker cure. I've been dealing with this for just over 2 years now and I'm also wondering if those of us who've already experienced this fecal odor might be susceptible to it again if we don't stick to the diet. Can we return to enjoying a pizza, beer, or whatever like everyone else or are we destined to eat like cattle for the rest of our days? I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm all for getting rid of this, and for GOOD, but is there any permanent damage to the body because of this is what I'm trying to get at. My doctor doesn't believe people can have Candida overgrowth yet my symptoms are genuine and much like everyone else here on this forum. I've seen 2 gastroenterologists and a hydrotherapist about it and only my hydrotherapist confirmed the over-growth of candida. Now intutitively-speaking, I had an idea that the liver was some how involved as well as you stated above being compromised by heavy drinking (which I did before the onset of symptoms). I'm wondering if this type of damage or affliction is permanently reversed with no threat of it coming back...at all. This is the ultimate question for many of us. How many men and women of all ages and health ranges eat and drink freely and don't worry about fecal Body Odor ? What makes us so different? I've had friends drink me under the table and they don't suffer at all.
So how long have you been smell-free since your 6 month battle? I too have noticed transparent and white particles of matter in my bowel movements that damn near shocked me and thought there was something wrong until I read that this is evidence of parasitic infection and the breaking down and release of unwanted toxin in the body. During which I was supplementing with a whole food vitamin, probiotics, Atlantic Cod fish oil, and Kyo-Green supergreen powder (fantastic stuff). Any insight on the Candida diet that you practiced would be helpful and also too how I can try to eliminate more of these transparent parasitic type matter in my colon on a regular basis instead of on occasion. Thanks.
