I am new here. An O nonnie (Hunter). Is this diet also for people with candida? I mean with all the fruit and fruitjuices and some vegetables high in glycemic index (Pumpkin and sweet patato)?
Like to hear from you.

I'm a gatherer, so I have to avoid lots of those high glycemic foods, but I do have Candida, though I haven't done much about I have to after lots of antibiotics, it seems candida are the only organisms left standing.

You can balance out the high glycemic foods with higher protein, or avoid them for a brief time.  Intrinsa is a good supplement for it.  The immunity pack is also helpful.

Hi Melissa,
Thank you for your answer. Too bad all those antibiotics. It creates a circle, antibiotics give you more candida. It is very hard to get rid of it. I am gluten sensitive and dairy also. I did a strict anti-candida diet with no fruits and only meat and vegetables and a lot of (good)fats. It didn't do much good (they say its die-off symptons), at least it is to strict it doesn't give much room to live. But I understand that BTD didn't heal your candida? Or maybe it takes a long long time.

BTD has helped the symptoms, and reduced inflammation, but I haven't really attacked the Candida issue.  I've usually eaten too much sugar (beyond what I'm allowed), and then the antibiotics came up recently.  I don't know if I could ever eradicate this stuff from my body, so one round of antibiotics can bring it back full-force.  I'm taking lots of stuff to improve my immune system, so once I'm past this pneumonia, I think my immune system will be stronger for it.  It may be hard to break the cycle, my husband is coming back from a trip now with his own illness for me to keep out of myself, but I'm going to refuse any antibiotics for anything that's not life-threatening for a long while.

BTD will definitely help, but a full-blown systemic Candida overgrowth will take a long time to eradicate...  The body needs to kill / detox / heal every infected part...  The more Beneficials / Superfoods you eat, the less toxins the body needs to process, so it can focus on the waste already stored in the body.  Any sugars or simple starches will feed Candida, so it is basically protein, fats, and low starch vegetables  that should be your diet while fighting Candida.

I have used the services of a Contact Reflex Analyst to determine the proper supplements to aid body healing and health maintainance during the fight...  Between both of us reading and hearing about possible aids, I continue to get better.

How bad is your Candida infection?

Birdie, each of us has individual issues we have to deal with.  Candida is yours.  You may have to be more restrictive than the BTD requires you to be for a while.  But any dietary changes you make will be worth it.

Thank you all for your help. It means a lot to me. One can feel lonely and misunderstood sometimes when having all those ailments on and of. I decided to do the Huntersdiet. So we will see what comes of it. I'll keep you posted.

After struggling with systemic Candida for many years (since childhood), I finally got it under control on the GTD (Warrior diet).  Three years on the BTD wasn't enough for me.  But 6 months on the GTD helped a lot.  So I would highly recommend the Hunter diet for you.
