CANDIDIASIS ELIMINATION DIET
LAST UPDATE: 3/18/2000

Why Follow a Candidiasis Elimination Diet?
Because candida albicans thrives on sugar, to eliminate it completely, during treatment with anti-fungal agents, probiotics, and other supplements, it is necessary to follow a sugar-free diet. Since sugar could not only bring the candidiasis back, but also is implicated in many other serious health issues, such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, ADD/ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, arthritis, and more, it might be wise to continue sugar-free, even after successfully eradicating candidiasis from one’s system.
HOW TO FOLLOW THE ELIMINATION DIET The first phase of the candidiasis elimination diet is designed to starve the yeast in the body. It is also used as an allergy-elimination diet. Generally, after the first three weeks, certain foods will be able to be added in, one by one, to identify any food allergies which are aggravating the condition. After a minimum of three weeks, or when there have been no symptoms for at least a week, cautiously add foods from the second phase, one by one. With each new addition, wait a day or two. After having added all the foods which you plan to add in, wait a week. If there are no recurring symptoms, then move on to the third phase, wait a week, and then move on to the fourth phase. Should symptoms reappear at any point, go back to Phase One and start over.
