Can I Eat Rice On The Candida Diet
Hi there. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.I've got an email here from a guy in America who wants to remain anonymous. Then he asksme, quot;Can I eat rice on the Candida diet? Is rice suitable? Will it affect my yeast infection?quot;This is a question I get asked all the time about rice. I've just had a look on severalwebsites and different forums about rice. Half the people say yes; half the people sayno. A lot of experts say no. But in my opinion, a lot of these experts have never had thekind of experience I've had treating tens of thousands of people with yeast infectionsor bowel problems. They've treated all kinds
of conditions, but they haven't specializedin gut disorders with people. I can tell you now, eating rice on the Candidadiet is very interesting for some people in terms of the effects it can create. For manypeople that I see, they have no issues at all eating rice when they've got Candida andthat includes white rice, brown rice, wild rice, basmati rice, all kinds of rice. ButI'll be quick to add that you're better off avoiding white rice on the Candida diet untilyou get a very good gut function back. Until the bowel motions improve. Until the bloatingand gas disappear. Until your weight's under control. Be careful with rice because somepeople eat much too much rice, just like they
eat much too much bread or potatoes or thesekinds of starchy carbohydrates. I prefer to eat brown rice. I like brown ricewith some wild rice thrown through it, the black rice. You can also eat red rice. Infact, brown basmati is quite a nice rice to eat, so there's a rice you can get calledbasmati rice. I prefer to use a basmati rice for making Palou dishes, which is really asteamed rice dish with vegetables mixed through it. That's called a Palou and then you canput different kinds of things like peas or carrots, some cardamom, some cloves, and somecinnamon sticks. You can put different spices and vegetables through the basmati and a bitof water in there.
And I usually put a little bit of water that'sabout one knuckle or even a half to one knuckle joint above the rice in the pot. I use a castiron pot and I use clean water. Usually just cold water. I don't usually rinse the rice.You're supposed to rinse it and all this business. I don't do that. And then I'll get it on high,get it boiling, and then turn it right down to low. I'm going to put a lid on the saucepan.Again, a heavy lid, I usually wrap a small tea towel around there. And I've learned thatputting a small cloth under the lid absorbs a lot of the steam and moisture and it alsogets the top of the rice nicely steamed. When you are going to eat rice, make sure you don'tuse those aluminum saucepans. Rice cookers
tend to be aluminum. Throw them out. You don'twant to have aluminum in your diet in a saucepan or in a rice cooker. Do the steaming methodusing a heavy saucepan. A stainless steel saucepan with a heavy copper base is alsogood to use. Brown rice is preferable. You can steam thator boil it. If you do want to stick with white rice, there's nothing stopping you from usingan 8020 blend of 80 percent brown, 20 percent white, a long grain. Basmati's a better kindof white rice to eat than other kinds of white rice. Some people say one cup per day. Nomore. I mean it's up to you. If you're used to eating rice, you'll sort of know how muchyou need to eat. Just don't eat too much rice.
Keep your amount down and make sure that ifyou do have rice, you have it alongside plenty of vegetables and protein. Don't just eata large plate full of rice. That's a big mistake. Can you eat rice on the Candida diet? That'sthe question. Well, if you are getting symptoms like brain fog, joint pain, bloating, gasor you're not feeling good and you are eating rice, stop the rice temporarily to see ifit improves your gut function. If you are eating rice and you get none of those symptoms,try to switch over to brown rice, which has got a higher fiber content. There are a lotof B vitamins. Some experts even believe that brown rice contains digestive enzymes. I knowthat when I eat more brown rice, I have better
The Candida Diet
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial I'm going to share with you The CandidaDiet and my top tips to cure candida fast. I can tell you from working with thousandsof patients. I'm going to go through the exact diet, the supplements, and a few treatmenttips that I can tell you, just within 24 hours you can start seeing incredible results ineliminating candida. So let's start with number one, the foodsyou've got to get out of your diet. It's going to be sugar, grains, and surprisingly foodsthat are cold. Now, that's part of Chinese medicine which I'll share more in a minute.But for starting out, if you have candida,
you obviously . . . I think you know this,but you want to get rid of sugar. You know, any time you have that white thrush on yourtongue, that's a sign that yeast is feeding on sugar within your body. We want to start eliminating yeast. We wantto stop feeding that candida albicans. And so, in order to do that, you've got to eliminateall sugar from your diet, and then also eliminate grains because grains are breaking down intosugar very quickly and even fruit at first. Now, listen, longterm, you're going to addsome grains back in after a few days and even fruit later on. But again, to start thoseare the biggest culprits that are causing
candida to grow. And last but not least, this is really important.If you're over consuming cold foods, ice water, ice cream, cold smoothies. According to Chinesemedicine, your spleen and pancreas and these areas in your body that are responsible foreliminating candida, they get over burdened by cold foods. And so rather than having acold smoothie, have a warm bowl of broth or rather than doing ice cream, have somethingwarm. Again, you want things that are warming to your body and drying. That's the key tokilling candida. Number two is doing a candida cleanse. Beforeyou go on my candida diet, what I recommend
the first thing you do is do a three day cleansewhere you're only consuming bone broth and vegetables, and that's really it for threedays. So again, bone broth, vegetables. You could do a little chicken in there as well. Basically you want to get a big crock pot.You want to do some chicken broth along with vegetables, including onions, celery, garlic,and a little bit of kale and sea salt. And basically you're going to do that soup withbasically vegetables. You can also throw in things, like cauliflower and broccoli. Andyou're going to do that bone broth soup with a little bit of chicken and just consume thatfor three days. I've had people do that two
weeks to see even faster results. That's whereyou want to start, in terms of doing a candida cleanse. It's mostly bone broth for a fewdays with a little bit of vegetables and sometimes a little bit of chicken. Step three is doing the candida diet, andhere are the best foods for helping you cure candida. Number one, it's going to be steamedvegetables, okay? Vegetables are the easiest thing for your body to digest. That's thefirst food. The second food is going to be fermented vegetables, like sauerkraut. Now,typically you don't want to eat the sauerkraut cold, but sauerkraut and kimchi are warmingto the body. They actually also help your
body get more good bacteria in its probioticswhich will help crowd out the yeast and bad bacteria that's built up within your system. The number three food is going to be bonebroth. Bone broth is incredible because it contains the amino acid, glycine, which supportsthe liver and helps your body clear candida. The fourth food is going to be organic meat,like wild caught salmon, organic chicken and turkey, lamb and grass fed beef. Those aresome other great options of foods that can help eliminate candida. And last but not least, it's going to be starchyvegetables, specifically things like butternut
