Because some people don't know what are they talking about..
The reason I ask is because I do not generally do well on dates and bananas, but have struggled with this diet if I do not eat them. I have never been diagnosed with candida, but have some mental acuity issues or brain fog and was just wondering why some people say to avoid those items if you are dealing with candida overgrowth. I also know that many attribute candida overgrowth to excessive fat in the diet, so you can see my conflict when you here people say to stay away from bananas and dates.
+1 rawbert, lol! :)
Get it straight from the horse's mouth! :D
That was really interesting, thanks ednshell. I wasn't actually sure of the process.
Hmm, I know when I used to eat bread it'd sometimes result in it too, wonder what the bread link is? is it the same as fats?
lots of bread is high in fat and has no fiber.
I think candida feeds on sugar, so if you've had some fats and you pile in the most sugary fruits and you're not utilizing all the sugar because the fat is in the way, you're just feeding the candida.
But if I am eating no overts, I should have no problem ?
Other things that cause it for me - antibiotics, a body that is too hot.. like when you're sleeping not from a workout, too much sex after none, and.. what else? I think sometimes even a hormone surge before my period.
Oh, and mold and yeast infections will spread if you're in constant contact with someone, like my job is caregiving, which sometimes involves trimming someones nails, showering them, and treating their rashes. They're badly infected. I haven't had too much of a problem there, but if I'm not careful I sometimes get a bit of a rash.
