Meat Only Diet For Candida

Is Buckwheat Ok On Candida Diet

Greetings. It's naturopath, Eric Bakker, authorof Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements. I've got a questiontoday from a lady in New York who wants to remain anonymous. Her question is quot;Eric isbuckwheat okay for Candida? Can I eat buckwheat if I've got digestive problems?quot;Actually, you can eat buckwheat, but let's just look at some common sense first. Whenyou're first starting out on a Candida diet approach, you need to first pull back, ofcourse, on the obvious crap out of your diet, the junk. Be careful if you haven't eatengrains like buckwheat or quinoa or oats or amaranth or any of these kinds of grains ornuts or seeds or for that matter, chickpeas

and beans, and things like that. Many peoplewill stop one thing and start something else, and they'll often eat way too much when theyfirst start and then get aggravations. If you haven't eaten buckwheat before, myadvice is to go very slowly with buckwheat flour or buckwheat groats and to eat small,small amounts incorporated into your diet every now and then. Maybe once or twice aweek and then gradually build up until you can tolerate them more. Remember, you're digestiveorgans have to slowly change and develop more enzymes and secrete these to allow these foodsto be broken down properly. The bacteria have to modify and perhaps shift in one directionor another there as well and modify their

colonies and populations to adapt to the kindof new diet as well. It's not just a matter of a mechanical process of swallowing andeating and now I've got a problem. What's wrong with me?The body has to adapt to these things. Just like muscles have to adapt to exercise. Justlike how your endocrine or your hormone system has to adapt to sleeping and work patterns.Everything in the body is about adapting to some kind of stress. So eating a new kindof carbohydrate in the diet, that will be a stress you're putting on the body, so anadaptation has to occur. You have to do that on a gradual process.Be wary of websites that say you can't eat

this and you can't eat that. I've just hada look at about a half a dozen websites that say that buckwheat, quinoa, oats, all of theseare 100 percent strictly forbidden on a Candida diet. Almost sounds like some kind of a preachertalking. Some kind of religious experience, so you can't do this and you can't do that.I love it when people say that. Common sense prevails when it comes to Candida. There arecertainly some quot;yesquot; and quot;noquot;, some quot;cant'squot; and quot;cans.quot; You'd have to be crazy to thinkthat you could drink coca cola on a Candida diet or to drink alcohol on a Candida diet.That's just crazy even believing that. Whether you're religious or not. You'd have to bea knot head to believe that.

In my opinion, it's the same when it comesto grains like quinoa and buckwheat and amaranth. Many people say no and some people say yes.Only you can be the judge of what that grain is going to be like in your digestive systemin terms of any effects it's producing. Buckwheat is okay, but when you're starting out on aCandida diet, go easy on it and gradually build it up. In fact, buckwheat is a verynice grain. I like it. I like millet as well. I like puffed millet and I just like plainmillet. It's very nice to incorporate, to cook, and to add small amounts into saladsand into your diet. We eat a lot of quinoa and it's a beautiful grain to eat. I likeit even cooked in chicken stock. It's a very

tasty addition as a side serve.Oats. I have oats most mornings. And I think small amounts of a steel cut oat are perfectlyfine to have with people with Candida. In fact, when you deny people all these grainsfrom their diet, they quickly get bored with just all vegetables and meats. What a boringdiet. Just meat and vegetables. Very boring. And many people lose weight and energy onthese grain starved diets as well. Buckwheat is okay.Think about soba noodles because they're buckwheat noodles. Soba is quite a nice addition toyour diet as well. Different ways you can incorporate buckwheat into your diet. Buckwheatpancakes, for example, with blueberries are

Case 29 Janey Vegan with Candida

Thanks for checking out my tutorial today. We're going todo another case history. This is a very interesting case history, and it might really ring a bellwith quite a few people out there. This is lady who is 27 years of age from America.I won't give you her real name or tell you where she lives because I try to keep thingsconfidential with people. This is a vegan patient, and while I've got no issues withveganism, this case history is going to illustrate the problems with veganism when it comes toSEBO, yeast infections, helicobacter infections, and all kinds of different problems.We'll call this lady, Janey, just as a matter of case. Janey is 28. She's got two smallchildren. She's been a vegan now for a number

of years for various reasons. Like a lot ofvegans, she needs to get her protein sources from other than meat, so she's going to getit, generally, from nuts and seeds, and she's also consuming a lot of dairy products.In this case here, we've got a big problem. We've got a woman with a serious vaginal yeastinfection. We've got a woman also who's got a child with asthma, very bad asthma, andhay fever and skin problems. This can pose quite a few problems. Janey was a meat eatera long time ago, but she started changing when she was about 16 or 17, and she reallygot rid of all the meat out of her diet. So she got quite serious with being a raw vegan,initially. Then she basically left the raw

veganism behind and got more into a cookedfood approach. I'm going to convert this lady away from veganism for reasons that you'llsee in a minute. She's had a vaginal yeast infection now forquite a few years, and it's been a really big problem with her. In fact, she's alsosuffered from bacterial vaginosis for many years. Her child had a serious asthma attackwhen he was about eight months of age, and she's had to resort to various medicationsfor him, which has left her quite distraught and upset as a mom who doesn't want to seeher child taking medications. The kind of advice I've given this lady, she'shad many, many different visits to practitioners,

and she's swapped all different kinds of dietaryapproaches over the years. But suffice it to say, the vegan approach is not really workingwith this lady. She's feeling very tired, and she's very anemic. Even though she's tryingto consume a lot of foods that contain B12 and iron, she's not really hitting the markwith vitamin B12. She just can't seem to get her levels up unless she supplements withit. She's also got a big problem with anemia, which some vegan patients can experience.So she has got a problem there with her ferritin, with her iron and storage protein, there'sjust not enough there. I'm not about in this tutorial to try to convertvegans to meat eaters at all. I believe it's

a completely personal choice. But when yourhealth gets affected because of social issues or, particularly, issues you may have aroundeating food, I think you need to have a good long hard think at why you're eating likethis, and is it really doing your health much good. I have got quite a few patients thatare vegans that are in outstanding health, but I've also got many patients that are vegansthat are in very poor health. My personal belief is that we need to eat meat, but onlyin very small amounts. We don't need to eat large pieces of steak.Another patient I had yesterday told me that her practitioner, a Paleo practitioner, toldher to focus on lots of lard, lots of fat,

and lots of meat. I think this �lots of�approach to diet is not really a valid approach. I believe that everything is in moderation.In fact, I read some interesting research done by Cambridge University in England onhow people used to eat a long time ago. I may have mentioned this in another tutorial.And the Paleo diets that we eat today are nothing like the Paleo diets that Paleo manand woman actually ate. The Cambridge study discovered that peopledidn't eat vast amounts of meat at all. They ate very, very tiny amounts of meat. In fact,the meat that they had was very lean. It was very low fat. The Paleo man's diet was supplementedwith insects, eggs, and small animals that
