The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 3

My two cents...

I guess I ought to add my experiences to this
discussion. I also have candida, leaky gut, allergies,
arthritis, fibromyalgia, and a host of other
symproms. I went cold turkey on all sugar, sweets,
fermented foods, mold-containing foods, and allergenic,
foods (had the ELISA blood test). Within days the
"iron curtain" of fatigue I had been living with
for ages lifted miraculously, the chronic headaches
went away, and all my other symptoms began to abate
slowly but surely. I went on a prescription
antifungal (Diflucan) about 5 weeks into this
diet and it pushed me even farther along on the road
to wellness. I discovered ER4YT a few weeks later
and this has taken another big step along the way.

I go to a candida support group about once a month
and from what I hear, this is not a condition that
you can just "get over" and go back to eating sweets
with impunity. I've met people who consiser themselves
"well" but still have to watch their diets carefully.
I know from what they tell me at the group that the
recovery I've experienced in just 6 months is quite
amazing. I attribute that to strict adherence to
the anti-candida diet, the brief ( a few weeks) use
of prescription meds, and the ER4YT diet. At this
point I can get away with eating a considerable
amount of fruit (but only permissable ones: apple,
pear, kiwi, citrus, watermelon and berries. Other
fruits like banana and canteloupe are full of mold.)
I can also use a little fruit spread on my toast.
I plan to try fruit juice concentrate as a sweetener
for baking in the near future.

I, too, don't know how far back to "normal" I'll be
able to go, but I've come to accept that my days
of chocolate bars and Frappucinos are gone. It
takes time to adjust to this idea.

Feel free to e-mail me if you'd like to talk more
about this. Good luck to you.
