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.

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.

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!

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

  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.

I set my Polyflora out each evening with my NAG and Valerine.  Right before bed which is about 2-3 hours after dinner, I take my dosages.  In the morning around 4:30 - 5:00 am when I get up to go to the bathroom which is about 2-3 hours before breakfast, I take my 2nd dosage.

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.yes, candida can make you feel fatigued and beyond. do a search on google for candida and really read up on it. it's some nasty stuff!

I would recommend the probiotic by Dr.D and possibly even the pylora.  If you can get someone to muscle test you after buying them, to see how much you need.  Some ND's or chiros's can do this.  

As far as I know, any sugar, will feed the candida.  Even fruits.  But, it's hard not to eat anything.  I would eat as little sugar as possible and get definitely introduce good flora to your gut.  Probably more than just the yogurt somehow.  Also, you may want to check you PH levels.  I think the bad guys like to live if you're off balance.  Too acidic or too alkali.  You can get these strips you pee on and read the colors.  I'm not sure where you get them, as my Dad is the one that bought them.  But if you google it, you can probably find them.

Hope that helps.

oopsy, forgot about that one.......that might be okay to use. will have to see if I can look that up. I have lost the password to my ebook, so will post when I find it.  
Whew!! found it.......It says....
"Avoid sweets, cakes, cookies, pastries, and junk food (potato chips, sweetened drinks, and doughnuts). Do not be fooled by natural sugars such as fructose, sucrose, raw sugar, organic sugar, honey, or molasses. Sugar is sugar.
Avoid all forms of sugar and foods which contain them, such as:
Molasses and sugar syrups
 Milk sugar (lactose) from milk products (yogurt, cheese, cream, milk)
 Honey
 Maple syrup
 Sugar substitutes
 Some canned food
 Bakery goods (cake, candy, cookies, muffins, pies)
 Alcoholic drinks
 Fruit sugar from grapes, melons and other high sugar foods
 Fruit juices and some vegetable juices
"

I will try to look thru it some more on Thursday. I'm spending the day w/ my granddaughters tomorrow, going to chiro, looking at chairs (hopefully), then work before bed, so my day will be full up.
So far inconclusive above vegi glyc, but I'm pretty sure I read that xylitol and stevia were ok. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I just don't know if it's completely good for you to totally stay away from sugars.  I did it too for awhile, but dang.  I would think one needs some energy from that.  Plus, the dairy has a tenancy to regulate blood sugar.  At least in my blood type and for me.

Quoted from JJR
I just don't know if it's completely good for you to totally stay away from sugars.  I did it too for awhile, but dang.  I would think one needs some energy from that.  Plus, the dairy has a tenancy to regulate blood sugar.  At least in my blood type and for me.


I didn't have the energy of a wet noodle when I first started on the Candida diet. Eating small, frequent, compliant meals is what helped my energy level - not sugar or carbs in any form.

This is straight from one of the books written by Dr. Orian Truss who studied the yeast problem beginning in the early sixties:

Certain elements in the diet appear to favor the growth of Candida albicans in the body.  Many foods have a high content of the class of foods known as carbohydrates.  These are the starches and sugars, and yeasts multiply rapidly when they are available.  In contrast, proteins and fats are less well utilized by fungi.  Decreased availability of carbohydrates slows the rate of multiplication of yeast cells and thus should reduce the amount of yeast products entering the bloodstream.  Also, foods that have an unusually high content of yeast or mold often cause an increase in allergic symptoms as well as in intestinal gas and bloating.  The most troublesome are the fermented beverages (especially wine and beer), aged cheeses, mushrooms, vinegar and breadstuffs with a high yeast content.

The obsession with trying to figure out a way to introduce sugar or carbs into the diet is part and parcel of the addiction Candida creates for its survival! It is a symptom. (BTW, I am not saying that veggie glycerine is bad for you at all!)It is better, though, to become obsessed with proteins and live foods - eaten whenever you need them. Of course, this is not a forever diet - it is only until the Candida is beaten down to a tolerable level and the immune system is able to do its job. Understanding more about how Candida works makes the diet so much easier for you. Imagine! Even back then Dr. Truss was writing about how the genes play a role in this problem! Fascinating! Dr. Truss saved my life!! Dr. D. has helped make it amazing!

I'm just glad I can eat fruit now.  When I was killing candida I  only ate cranberries, frozen, lemons, limes and blueberries.  For like 2-3 months or more.  Now I'm eating my Nomad fruits with seemingly no ill effect to candida.

I can't say enough good stuff about Dr. D's PolyFlora.  When I started taking that I started noticing a difference.  I've been on the most expensive probiotics I could buy off and on (mostly on) for a good bit of my life.  I had yeast infections from early childhood and my mother would give me probiotics.  I just kept taking them as I grew up even though they didn't really do much.  PolyFlora works.  Die-off is terrible.  But it's worth it.

Hello all BTD's:
I promised that I would let you all know about the results of my dried blood cell analysis, well it wasn't too good, I tested positive for the following; I have free radicals going on and cellualr stress damage in my reproductive and other bodily organs. She reccommeded an antioxidant program as well as a detox program. This DOM is located quite a ways from where I live and with the price of gas staggering, I can't keep driving that distance all the time to go up there, I figure it's about 5-6 miles away. So, I know a friend of mine who is a certified natural health practitioner and she sells good quality all natural food supplements and she has an office closer to my area and does the urine and saliva tests to determine pH levels, and the DOM said that I could do my own program provided I do a retest in 3 mos. So, I am going to call her to let her know about the results(the DOM will also send them to me as well.) and set up a time that I can talk to her and go over the results and she if can come up with a good reccommendation for me, I was on her urine and saliva test program one time before when she first tested me and she gave me some good quality supplements to take and I felt pretty good when I was on them. So, will see what happens. Cause I know at this rate, I will definitely need some nutritional help, I have been feeling really fatigued and lousy, and hardly any energy to do anything. So, hope my friend can help me out. Plus my digestive system has been in peril cause of the cellular stress damage, so will probably need some good enzymes.
Anyone ever had this kind of problem, if so, please elaborate and let me know.
Take Care to all,
Footprints.

Hi,
If you have a yeast overgrowth then you shouldn't use agave. I'd use xylitol or stevia. Hope this helps.

some xylitol is made from corn, some from birch tree. the only way to know for sure is to call the company, unless it's stated on the packaging.

Xylobrit make or obtain xylitol and theirs comes from fruits, vegetables and hard woods like, in this case, the birch tree. It has a blood sugar rating of around 7 / 100 so its way better than fructose and helps promote the enamel in teeth, suitable for pregnant mums, benefits the production friendly bacteria etc etc. I am suffering with a yeast overgrowth also and have had a top British nutritionist give me the go ahead with this product, what other brands of xylitol are like I'm afraid I can't say - such as Xylosweet by Higher Nature.
Hope this helps,

Cheers,
Steve

For Xylosweet, http://www.xlear.com/xylosweet/faq.aspx:

Quoted Text
Where does it come from?
Corncobs and birch trees are the main sources for commercially produced xylitol. However, there are no residual corn products in the xylitol.


I tried some Xylosweet for the first time yesterday.  It looks like sugar, and tastes like sugar with a slight "cool" overtone.  The nice lady at the health food store gave me three sample packets to try before buying any!  I am going to buy a bag of this stuff, since the agave isn't as good as I thought for those treating yeast overgrowth.

I keep saying I'm not going to be astonished at the multitude of ailments a single herb/supplement will combat, but using nettle for candida is certainly a new one for me. And I am astonished. Again. I have been taking nettle for at least ten years, and it is wonderful for mild seasonal allergies to certain blooming shrubs, etc.. It helps the aching as well as other symptoms of these allergies. Which may simply mean nettle keeps down candida and the mayhem it causes in a zillion different ways.

Thanks for the information Steve, I'd struggled to find xylitol locally and now find it's easily available over in the UK   after all.

Hello Italybound,
    As to your question, I found this DOM in a local natural health magazine called Natural Awakenings. She is sort of new to my area and I knew what she specialized in and they(this Alternative Health Clinic) does this type of testing anyway and thought I would have it done to see what my blood cells showed up and I am really glad I did go. Now I know what it is and that it can be treated the correct natural way. Maybe you can do a search on your computer and find a DOM in your state or maybe you might have a ND in your state that possibly might do the test. I guess I am just lucky that I found one near my area that does it. Best of luck to you, let me know if you find one. Also, if you do and you have the test done, let me know what yours showed as well.
Take Care,

Hello all BTD's,
Been awhile since my last post to you all.
As far as this carageenan ingredient is concerned, I have been learning a lot about it. Didn't even know it was an avoid until I  mentioned  it on the forum that I had been drinking silk light vanilla soy milk and one forum member warned me against it. Don't drink it anymore. I have been reading articles on the internet and tallking with a lady from american pharmacal(from Dr.D.) and she told me that carageenan is carageenan, no matter if it's food grade or not & that there is no such thing as food grade carageenan, it's all the same, I soon found this out from another article I read which stated that the food grade type can cause problems as well,so it's probably just as safe to steeer clear away from it. This same lady told me to use the west soy organic soy milk,the unsweetened kind, it doesn't contain carageenan, so I bought it lately, the vanilla flavor and it wasn't too bad, but the only problem is that I cannot afford to keep buying those small cartons. So the only solution that I could come up with, is that I bought some Geni-soy protein powder mix(vanilla)and mixed about 10-12 scoops of it into a tall container of distilled water and shook it real good and keep it in the refrigerator for use on my cereal or drinking purposes, any other solutions someone can come up with, jump in and let me know.
I want to alert forum members  to check the labels on organic soy milks that are kept cold w/other milk products, I learned that they contain carageenan as well, could be the result of another GMO product. So, don't be fooled into this. Just because a product says it's organic doesn't necessarily mean it's so, need to make sure it all the certifed organic labeling on it, either by the UDSA/organic or the QAI(Quality Assurance Int.) Soy milks such as Silk, 8th continent, and probably others I am not aware of, will have this carageenan additive in it.(OH those pesky chemicals that they add to our food just to make us sick.) So, please be aware of this. This additive is not only an avoid for type A's, but also bad for all other blood types as well. It can cause serious stomach problems according to a website:www.rense.com/general74/glue.htm in some people.
So that is my statements on the subject, will have to learn as I go along on this journey. Sure will make it more easier it we just lived in a world free of chemicals, and not had to worry about what is in our food or personal products we use and lived in a more natural world the way God intended it to be. That would be ever so nice, but it's not, so we have to be consumer watchdogs on what we foods and products we purchase.
Take care everyone and try to stay in good health.

we have all been warned on the dangers of gums and additives...they exacerbate lectin damage.

make your own milk from grains or seeds etc....it s easy and compliant......

Does anyone know if sucralose feeds candida?  I don't go after it, but there are a few things I like that it shows up in (like my whey protein powder) that I don't want to get rid of.  I know sucralose is a toxin on GTD, but then so is the whey protein!

I think I may be battling Candida again.  Should I stay away from fruits too?  I don't have a problem cutting out the sugars, like honey and agave and all that, they just make things taste yummy.  But I don't know if giving up fruit is a great idea either.  I suppose I could cut back or something.

I try to avoid most fruits that aren't berries.  Even grannie smith apples seem to feed the stuff, sour as they are!  Honey is a definite no-no, agave is better than honey but still not great.  I hear that xylitol is good, and substitutes 1:1 with sugar.  I just bought some today, in fact!

These threads have a lot of useful info on candida:

I think the sucralose question may be a moot point now.  I had just bought the whey protein powder.  When I mixed up some, the first glass was ok, but later that day I mixed up a second glass, and it cramped my stomach.  Oh well....

Drive, how is your candida fight going?  I just did the spit test this morning again and it looked practically like the picture on the computer.  YIKES!!!!!  

I'm discouraged.  On another note, my neighbor and I go to church together and they had a another member, Paul, over to help with cutting down some trees.  We were talking and somehow we got on cancer, and then toxins in foods and all this stuff and he said the thing that brought him to the Lord was Candidiasis.  Or however you say a candida overgrowth.  It was really great to talk to someone that had similar symptoms and have them understand what's going on!!!!  He's very strict with his diet, he read the D'Adamo books and said he found the foods congruent with what screws him up and what doesn't.  He said it took him SEVEN years before he got better.  But he had some worse symptoms than even I had.  But some of the same too!!!!

It just makes me thankful for this sight and for other people that understand the struggles.

Drive, how is your candida fight going?  I just did the spit test this morning again and it looked practically like the picture on the computer.  YIKES!!!!!


I was so excited, when I got up this morning my tongue wasn't coated!  I felt pretty good and very energetic this morning, despite going to bed a little later than I should have last night.  That didn't last long though....  I pushed my luck with that protein drink again, and lost.

So I'll go back and fill in the gaps about that.  I bought the protein mix, then I posted the question.  I should have posted the question first, but it was a slightly impulsive buy .  The first glass of the stuff I drank didn't bother my stomach.  I had a second glass hours later (this was on Saturday) and that's the one that bothered me.  So I had some lingering doubt about whether it was the drink that caused the trouble or if it was something else.

Today I brought a bottle of the drink with me to work.  I start at 7 am.  Around 7:20 I drank a sip, thinking to see what a little sip did to my stomach, but it tasted so good that I took 2 more gulps and another little sip, in total about 6-7 oz., or almost half the bottle.  Maybe 5 to 10 minutes later I noticed that my stomach was starting to feel unsettled.  Then I started feeling weak.  Then I had a loose BM, and immediately thereafter I left work sick, at 8 am.  It worked fast!  I was feeling great until I drank that garbage.

Here are the ingredients: whey protein blend (whey protein concentrate and isolate), super recovery blend (creatine monohydrate, taurine, l-glutamine, leucine, isoleucine, valine), natural and artificial flavors, soy lecithin, acesulfame potassium, sucralose.

I suspect the sucralose is the culprit, but wiser eyes may see something else in here that could be problematic.

I hate it that some foods do this to us!!!!!  I used to eat whatever the heck I wanted.  It just gets frustrating.  Oh well, at least we'll be alot healthier in the long run for looking into all of this!!!!

Yeah, and you used to be sick all the time too! (just like me)  I think these kinds of foods were affecting us the same way "back then", but we were already sick from so many other things that we didn't even notice.  The bucket was full then, but now that it's empty, clean, and dry, that one little drop seems like a lot more, even if it isn't really.

edited to add: I'm already feeling a little better, and I expect to be back to "normal" (whatever THAT means) by tomorrow!

Well for me, I didn't show any problems until I was about 30 years old.  Before that I had more energy than I knew what to do with.  I worked very hard and played hard.  I guess those days are probably over.  I need to learn to relax more and enjoy the energy when I got it!!!

Today wasn't too bad!!!!

I'm kind of worried.  I'm down 1 pound less than I've ever been.  Meaning I think I've hit the lightest.  I think just cutting many fruits out and the agave, molasses, etc.  I suppose I shouldn't worry about 1 pound though.

Your weight can easily vary by a pound or two just from morning to evening!  Don't stress about it.

Yeah it usually does, but what I was trying to say is that's the lowest it's ever gotten.  I think my whole adult life.  I was trying to go up, not down.  BUT, on the genotype website it says anywhere from 125-158lbs is healthy.  I don't really feel completely healthy yet though.  

But yeah, it's not like I dropped 5-10 lbs.

Hello again all BTD's,
It's me again and I have another question re: the milk issue for those with candida yeast issues.
I myself who like to know if it would be okay to comsume a milk product called Organic Valley lactose free lowfat milk. I am really worried    that I am not getting my RDA of calcium intake at the present time since I have this yeast issue going on & have to limit my dairy intake. I am using a soy protein vanilla powder drink mix for use in my hot & cold cereals since some soy milks contain carageenan which type A's and all other blood type have to avoid. This lactose free lowfat milk is certified orgainic by the USDA and QAI. Please anyone jump in and provide any input you have. Also, I noticed that soy cheese is very beneficial for Type A's, where could I find some? and what does it taste like? Thanks.

tofu is considered a complete protein for As.....
I d add silken tofu with water in the blender and blend my own soy milk, with no gums or additives....
I d avoid the other milk altogether, unless it were on my list.

there are better sources of calcium out there.....

Footprints, I wouldn't drink lactose-free milk.  It's still milk, and the fact it's been tampered with so much it's not natural anymore makes me even less likely to drink it.  You're an A.  Try soymilk.  You can get soy cheese at just about any health food store.  I like Soy Kaas, but it does have one or two avoids and it gives me gas the first time or two I eat it if I haven't eaten it in a while.  Now I eat Warrior cheeses without any trouble.

Drive55, I wonder if it's the soy lecithin.  I know it's supposed to be neutral for everybody, but my daughter, who is allergic to soy, reacts to lecithin.  I tried it in some bread and she had her typical soy reaction.  That being said, the reaction you had doesn't sound too much like soy to me.  How do you usually react to soy?  Or does your "gut" tell you it's something else?

Lecithin is also commonly made from eggs, which your daughter also does not not do well with.

If you want lecithin from sources other than eggs and soy, I have read lecithin can be made from sunflowers, rapeseeds, peanuts or corn.
I have not actually purchased lecithin made from anything other than soy or eggs.

Oh!  Well.  Thanks for telling me that.  Even if it was made from peanuts or corn it would still bother her.  Probably.

I have soy lecithin almost every day with juice/water and flaxseed oil.  I never noticed a problem with it, but then again, I'm not so hot at noticing such things right off the bat, unless they are dramatic.

Soy just gives me a sort of general malaise, fatigue/sleepiness, brain fog, and/or worse mood.  I just ran out of grape juice today, so I'll go without the lecithin for a few days to see if anything happens when I bring it back.

Are you sure your lecithin is from soy?

Nope, but it says "soy lecithin", so it's a fair assumption.
