Hello,

I have just come across 'The Body Ecology Diet' that seems to help a great deal in candida type problems http://bodyecology.com Some of the testimonials are very impressive indeed.

Has anyone had any experience of this diet or is the BTD/Genotype diet better? I did the Body Ecology test and it said that for me, "Yeast-connected health problems are almost certainly present." I like it because it is focused specifically on candida, whereas there doesn't seem to be a BTD/Genotype diet targeting candida specifically (e.g., in the series of books about Arthritis, Menopause, etc).

Thank you in advance for your advice!

Ruby, you  can look a the protocols for yeast candida.

  I am not sure how to explain this but the O diet is all designed to treat candida. O's suffer from candida, particularly O non secretor women.

Dr. D'Adamo has designed his diet around these issues.


I am not familiar with the BE diet so I can not speak about it.

Just looked at the website, looks like a whole load of products and a one size fits all approach.

Ok, thank you, I hadn't realised that, Andrea. And yeah, you're right, I just had another look and agree with your impression that it's a lot of products and a one size fits all approach. In addition, I found that I cannot order the products outside of the US, so it looks like a non-starter for me anyway  

Lola, thanks a lot for the links - wow, I hadn't realised there was so much to learn about this way of eating! I hadn't seen that part of the website before. I have signed up for the newsletter  

I hope my Swami kit arrives tomorrow, so I'll be able to calculate a more personalised diet.

I agree with Andrea - the entire O diet is designed to tackle O-type problems, one of them being candida.  The basic "anti-candida diet" is essentially the O diet.  If there are specific things from BE that you think would benefit you, you can always combine those with BTD as long as it allows you to remain compliant with BTD.  There are some people who combine different health strategies; some O's combine BTD and paleo, for example.

Hmm, I think I would be best to stick with one thing only for now. I still haven't quite got my head around doing this D'Adamo diet - I am waiting for my Swami and then I plan to follow that, but not mix it with other approaches. I think that it might be best to do that for a while at least, and then hopefully some health issues will resolve and if there are any left I can decide if I want to combine the diet with any additional things, such as BE or whatever. But I hope that my Swami diet will be all I need!  

I really do want to feel well and have energy and feel young again ...

our plans are body physiology diets with personalized ecology thrown in for good measure!

I'm an A and have candida problems at times when eating too many "fast and cheap" fuels like breads, whole grains, and the like.  They make me feel tired and the energy is cheap and doesn't have endurance.  

I feel a sourness after eating stuff like this and get thrush on my tongue.  Eating solid and long burning fuels like different meats, fruits, and veggies while minimizing most whole grains and fast burning fuels appears to help me greatly.

I use a "paleo" version of the explorer diet, with mostly rice as the main carb i use based on grains, and this minimizes the thrushing, the sourness, and gives me energy that lasts more than 10 minutes without a crash.

Perhaps this is because my momma is a tried and true hunter i am wired this way.

I've used a number of ideas from Body Ecology that have helped me a lot.  They do quote the Blood type diet and while they may not agree totally with everything in the Blood type diet they recommend following most of it.  Depending on your energy you might find some of their ideas useful.  They have a web site that you can get lots of tips from too.

I said that because i ate a bunch of cereals and ate less fresh foods and meats the past few days and my energy levels were lower until i started moving and exercising in the afternoons, like i would sit down and feel like going to sleep!  I'm gonna check it out sounds interesting.  

Rice and oats are good.  The book even has a few varieties of wheat that are superfoods for explorers.  I keep it varied though if i can.  I had chocolate frosted mini wheats and that is what really did it!  I'm more used to eating the right stuff so i can feel it when i eat bad stuff now!!

Oh gosh, lots of replies - sorry I've been away for a while and haven't responded sooner.

@Andrea AWsec and Lola - thanks very much for the hint on Tom Greenfield. I'm actually very tempted to make an appt. He's a long way from me, but manageable on the train. I sometimes find things easier to do when I'm 'told' by someone else what to do, and I have a sense of not wanting to let them down. I know that's a bit silly and I should be able to discipline myself, but well, I'm far from perfect!  

@AKArtlover - thanks very much for the links, helpful, informative stuff there!  

@Sahara - hmm, I didn't much like the thought of kefir anyway - yeuch!  

@Easy E - yes, 'fast and cheap fuels' certainly need to be avoided to keep tiredness candida at bay! However, even though I know this, I still find it difficult to change my eating.

@Lin - I have found some of the stuff on their website interesting too. I've given it a lot of thought though and I think I probably need to do one thing or the other and at the moment I am more convinced by the BTD and GTD. Less sure about GTD as I haven't really done it properly, because of uncertainty about which one I am.

Ruby,
You are wise to go with what you believe will help you more likely to succeed.
Good luck!

Dr Greenfield would probably run a SWAMI as part of an office visit. That's even more personalized than GTD, and you don't need to worry  about "not figuring it out correctly" when you have a professsional do the measurements, interpret your fingerprints, etc.

If you are going to go see him, I'd suggest following BTD until then, to keep things simpler.

Ruby, I had a look at the BE site today, which linked my fungal problem with my achlorhydria - I think a lot of secretors may have this sort of problem, not necessarily food related (i believe) - although they did suggest (for me) to include more ''fermented foods) which i can't really have due to swami.

I found this particular page really useful http://bodyecology.com/articles/low_stomach_acid_symptoms.php

I am thinking I will have to find some sort of semi compliant yogurt or something fermented with good bacteria ...

Like Lola says make your own now with the polyflora right for your type.
