Candida Diet For Vegetarian

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
