It's been some years since I've posted on this site. I'm currently handling candida and I'm just wondering if yams should be eliminated from the diet while getting it under control. I recall Dr. D stating that one shouldn't have to eliminate foods that are blood type compatible to handle any disease. I just can't remember if yams are beneficial for o nonnies. I've cut the grains, but do have some brown rice every now and again and it doesn't SEEM to bother me much. Any thoughts?

introduce those in your diet, ultimately your body will let you know in time if you continue or not.....we are all individuals.

Hi and welcome back!
Yams are neutral for O nonnies.
I was recently put (back ) on a candida diet for a month by my naturopath. I was told to cut out all processed food, which to my surprise included rice flour and rice pasta/noodles. I was put on oregano supplements and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil per day, even though coconut oil is an avoid. Obviously all refined sugars, molasses, agave etc were also out for the month.
I was allowed dried or fresh fruit like bananas, and starchy food like pumpkin and carrot in moderation, like twice a week only. I guess yams would fall into that category. There was no restriction on allowed citrus fruits.
It worked for me. At my next appointment I was candida-free.
Good luck to you!
