I didn't know that. I'd like to hear what others have to say too!

Me too, but if I was going to use any kind of sweetener while having candida issues, it would either be agave, stevia or vegetable glycerine.

I don't know if it's good for candida, but it's a big step in the right direction away from any kind of refined sugar or corn syrup.

If I had candida issues I'd use it or veg. gly. when I needed a sugar/sweet fix.

I find that the only thing that absolutely feeds the Candida is sugar.  Honey, agave, fruit....doesn't seem to do it to me (I know in reality honey and fruit do feed yeast [I know this from making bread], but I can't tell it bothers my body.  But sugar absolutely does it.  I'll eat more agave if it's really okay.

When I was going through it last summer I avoided any kinds of breads and fruits for like 2 months.  I was pretty disciplined about it.  I don't know if that's the right thing to do though.  I would think if you stick to not eating avoids, it will help.  But maybe not.  I don't know, all I know is like I said before, the candida stuff is just annoying.

One of my tests from that Doctor I'm going to says I have no growth of Lactobacillus in my gut.  WHAT?  I've been taking it.  But I performed that test, only after a few days of taking polyflora.  I was taking another type for a while though.  It either didn't work, or the bad flora killed all the good flora I was taking.  Man that's frustrating.

Take your polyflora before going to bed, ideally on an empty stomach.  It has less competition from stomach acids that way.

For some people, taking probiotics in the morning doesn't work because all the digestive enzymes being produced in response to the incoming foods, will damage or kill the beneficial organisms.

Even tho no yeast showed in my live blood analysis, I am more and more convinced I have the issue. Especially after taking that test!!  

ER4YT is even mentioned as material for Further Reading in the e-book.

Italy,I think it could be in your gut and not in your blood.  I think it only gets into your blood after it goes systemic.  Meaning it leaks out your gut into your system.  Be thankful that it's not in your blood though!!!!!

According to what I've read so far, "C/A (candida albicans) lives on our skin and in our gut. The skin acts as a barrier, but even a scratch can allow it to invade below the skin, multiply and cause infection."
I was treated for C/A many years ago. When I did the test, I came out very high. I doubt, as you say that it's in my blood, but I have known a person or 2 who did. I plan on attacking the h*ck outta this so it doesnt get that far. The e-book so far has been very interesting!

Does Dr D address candida in any of his books?

I have a candida book written by an Australian naturopath but of course it doesn't take into account blood type.

people have been greatly helped following this protocol and sticking to the allergies health series book.....or another of their choice, which gives more targeted advice in regard to low GI.....the diabetes book comes to mind.
others are using other means, also with success.....
you need to find a nice fit for you and stick to it.

Are there any Type O noni-s now Hunters out there?  I have been very very compliant to the type O since 2006 and noni complaint since October of 2008, and now starting on the Hunter regimen.  But I don't have the internet at home only at my local library so I don't want to pay for the updates on the Hunter, so any suggestions anyone has would be much appreciated.  I'm 59, and I think getting too old for all this changing.  Thanks in advance- Bonnie Blue

I have read somewhere that agave is al right for candida, because of low glycemic index.

I scored a 42 on that test, and most of them were in the "mental" category.

So, Italy, can you give us the secrets contained in the e-book?

  We are all supposed to have some candida in our gut, its when the bad bacteria (candida) and good bacteria (biotics) banlance is off and if it goes into our bloodsytem and everywhere else that it is a problem.

  As for sweetneers.  I seem to have a prblem with just about everything that it sweet if I have to much of it. That includs honey, Agave nectar and some fruit. Although It might not have to do soley with Candida for me, It could just be my spleen....

Myself, 26, IIRC, mostly mental and upper respiratory.  And I think our daughter has symptoms very similar to mine.

I wonder, if we could get rid of Candida completely, would our snoring go away?



My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Not to be a nit-picker here, but candida is a yeast/fungus, not a bacteria.  But you are right on about the balance part!  That's why antibiotics often cause candida to flare up, because they don't hurt the yeast, just the bacteria that are keeping the yeast in balance.

Hello to everyone sticking so faithfully to the BTD, keep hanging in there,it will be all worth it in the end.
Since we are all on the subject of candida, I had the live blood cell analysis test done last Tues. by a board certified DOM(Doctor of Oriental Medicine.) It was quite interesting to say the least to see all my blood cells on a screen from just a drop of blood. It turns out that I showed some yeast going on, looked like clouds floating around my cells, and that I also had some evidence of acidity going on which I already knew from another test that I had done last year. The DOM said I should stay away from dairy products for awhile, well the only dairy I ever eat is low fat cottage cheese which I only consume maybe 2 or 3 days a week and eat low fat mozzarella cheese. I have switched from drinking organic low fat milk to low fat vanilla soy milk which doesn't seem to bother me except that I get a little gassy from it, probably because I have to get used to drinking it again. And I eat low fat organic stonyfield's yogurt for its probiotic benefits and the DOM said that was fine. As for the sweetners that you all mentioned, would it be okay to use the raw sugars such as turbinado sugar like the brand, sugar in the raw? And as for peanut butter, I use the brand Naturally More which is made from natural cane sugar, I only use honey in my yogurt and hot teas, so is that acceptable for folks who have candida yeast in their blood. And I have been feeling quite fatigued and tired and the DOM said that yeast in your blood could make one fatigued as yeast feeds on your blood cells. Suppose to hear back from the DOM on Tues. on the results of my dried blood cell analysis that she wanted to do as well, so will let you all know on Friday what she gathered from that.
Almost forgot, the DOM gave me some probiotic supplements which is suppose to help reduce the yeast problem, she said for me to take it first thing in the morning before my meal or an hour so so after my meal, that was her suggestion. I noticed too that Dr. D. advised all blood type A's to take a probiotic supplement as well. I guess that its because we have low stomach acid and it helps increase the good bacteria in the stomach to help strengthen the immune system in our stomachs. So, it would probably help for all us A's s to take a probiotic supplement and not just eat yogurt as this helps too.
