Re: Could this be true?
I have experienced dramatic improvement of all my candida symptoms (including diarrhea, weight loss, chronic fatigue, circulatory problems, multiple allergies, concentration problems, ear problems, etc) for three months now. I stopped using dishes washed in a dishwasher, what I had done for the last 30 years.
I realized of it due to a long journey in which I seldom ate in restaurants, much more buying things in supermarkets.
I think dishwasher soap residues may act as a potent fertilizer to candida in the intestine. Dishwashed dishes may also be polluted with rubber residues from the machine (note the usual rubber smell when opening the machine door just after it is finished). These rubber residues may very well act as an irritant, bolstering the possibly fertilizing effect of soap residues.
I know what I have is candida, it always and only responded to anti-fungal medication, and candida IgG and IgM antibody levels were too high.
I have also realized air pollution is the other decisive factor. There I think it is diesel smoke. Buckyballs contained in smoke can act as a soluble antibiotic. At the same time some other component (possibly gases like NOx) are probably acting as candida fertilizers (fungi can take nutrients dissoilved in liquids).
It is important avoiding processed food, full of Antibiotics
, food preservers and antioxidants. Many food preservers are in fact substances preventing bacterial growth (therefore much like Antibiotics
). Sodium bicarbonate can also alter PH levels therefore altering flora (the same way bleach does). Antioxidants are often synthetic forms of vitamin E, which also greatly fuels candida growth. Avoid vitamin E intake. I think it is best avoiding all suplements.
Wish you all the best
