Are Mushrooms OK On The Candida Diet
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker. Author of Candida Crusher and also the formulatorof the Canxida range of dietary supplements. Thanks for tuning in. The question today is quot;Do mushrooms aggravateCandida? If you've got a yeast infection, can you eatmushrooms?quot; In my Candida Crusher book, I did write precautionarythings about mushrooms for people. But since then, I will tell you that I'veworked with a lot of people who do eat mushrooms
on the Candida diet that have had absolutelyno bad effects at all. In fact, one researcher recently told me thatit was quite stupid telling people who've got Candida to avoid all forms of mushroomsbecause Candida is like a fungus, so is a mushroom. Therefore, it's feeding itself. That's probably a bit like saying if you'vegot a strep or staph infection, you should kill of all the beneficial bacteria in yourgut. Because why would you want to feed the beneficialbacteria if you're trying to kill bad bacteria.
When, in fact, strep and staph bacteria arevery closely related to lactobacillus. Much more so than Candida is to mushrooms. Think about that kind of logic for a moment. It doesn't make sense. I must admit I've got many patients that eatPortobello mushrooms or champions, the small white ones, with Candida that have got noill effects whatsoever. I've also got some patients who believe it'sperfectly fine to eat blue vein cheese when you've got Candida.
I keep telling you guys. You need to experiment for yourself. Don't listen to me. Don't listen to stuff you read on the internet. Try it for yourself. If in doubt, try very small amounts to seehow you feel. Don't automatically assume that all mushroomsare going to create a huge aggravation with Candida.
Because if you cook beautiful Portobello mushroomsin butter and eat them, in my opinion, you probably won't get any problems. It's trial and error. You need to experiment for yourself. Some of you out there will have a bad effect. But I can probably automatically tell younow that I think the majority won't have a bad effect eating mushrooms with Candida. Just because you read something on the internet,it doesn't mean to say that it's necessarily
the truth. I read lots of interesting stuff from theinternet just like you do that the world's coming to an end. That we're all going to die of herpes andaids. All this sort of stuff. Don't believe this kind of nonsense. You need to trial this for yourself. Because mushrooms are a really good food toeat.
