BTD Forums  /  Testimonials  /  Candida Survivor?
Posted by: eur0boy (Guest), Wednesday, January 4, 2006, 8:51am
Id like to know.  Ive been trying to search around here and it seems to me that everyones posts that I have read who have candida just can't seem to get better.  Are there any survivors here?  If so some say something.  Give me some hope or something.

I overcame candida 18 years ago with the use of diet very similar to BTD and nystatin powder along with supplements.  If you don't stay away from the foods that cause candida you won't ever be free from it.  I need to do a really good cleanse again now but I've also not stayed compliant for all 18 years so it's only natural that it will reappear.

If you go to the top of the page and click on member centre (on the top right hand side of this page) and get yourself a nice avatar (located on the left) then we can all see what blood type you are and you won't have to type it each time you post.

I finally got the best of candida, too, but you don't do it overnight. I also did it with a good diet, supplements and nystatin powder. Oh, if only I had known about Larch Aribinolalactan back in those days, though!!! It is one of my favorite NAP supplements.

According to Donna Gates Body Ecology Diet, a person never truly gets over candida.  I found her book helpful and pro-BTD.

I found this site helpful:

Also sells alot of helpful supplements and is full of good advice. You can even call this guy on the phone for free.

I do not have a real authoritative opinion on candida & probably still have it to some degree but here is what I've found-- fruits and sweets are not the problem per se so much as indigestible foods such as grains (for blood type O anyway)  I've had success controlling my digestive issues any time I've eaten fewer grains.  Fruits are not that much of a problem, or, I could just be in denial.  Meat is a wonderful food digestion-wise; it changed my digestion overnight in a way no other food ever has.  

I did use a homeopathic remedy some years ago called AquaFlora which I would recommend to anyone in a desperate state.  Otherwise I agree with Hulda Clark, the lady who wrote the books about parasites that were so popular in the 90s:  The key to getting rid of candida is good digestion/regular bowel movements.

I got over a bad case of candida in just about 2 months!  It was so bad I had massive rashes from it.  I stayed away from grains and most dairy.  I continued to eat the beneficial fruits and drank my 3 ounces of noni everyday.  I did use nystatin for a week and some herbs, but that was all.  All tests since that time (almost 2 years ago) show there to be NO CANDIDIA!  Grains seemed to be the biggest culprit and when I got rid of grains, I got rid of candida!

How would a type A get rid of Candida?  A's can't eat meat and all that is left would be beans.  :(

Although I am on those early threads, I don't believe I ever reported in at the end.  July to late February-March, I would say--8 or 9 months.  I did the protocols, fairly strict diet (no grain, no fruit, no sugar except xylitol, but slipped in some blueberries and tart apples).  Larch is great, still use it, and still take occasional olive leaf.  Fairly late in the process, I added Candex (which I had resisted because of expense, and because I had to get up at night to take it), and that really seemed to make a difference in a hurry.  Now I eat much more fruit, have gone from 5-7 fruits and vegetables a day to 9-11, with a lot of cabbage (good against candida and parasites, bad for thyroid) in the mix.  I use Polyflora, but read that acidophalus is the best antagonist for candida, so added those pricy little "pearls" of acidophalus.  That also caused a big step forward.  I early found that eating a cabbage leaf after a meal seemed to help, but did not stick with it, then brought it back.  At the worst, I could not manage even one fruit a day, nor my staple sweet potatoes.  (For me, a little too much progesterone, low thyroid, and probably perpetual bad digestion from low stomach acid pushed me out of balance in a big way.)  I still use a lot of stuff for digestion (HCl and digestive enzymes), but the difference is night and day.   I can have a piece of chocolate without expanding one size!

You are not supposed to "get over" candida in an absolute sense--it lives here and is part of the huge community of "things" we call ourselves (bacteria, mites, lots of other folks, and traditional Chinese medicine thinks our organs have their own "personalities" in a way).  Candida does things like eat excess mercury as well as steroids, I have read, although not sure about the science on that one!  What you get over is an imbalance between candida strains and other bioflora.

Anyway, good luck, stay with it--it does become something you forget you had!  But I'm sure one can go backward again.  At least you will know how to find the balance again.
