Candida Help

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 08/14/2011

Dear Ted,

I read your article on Candida you wrote on Earth Clinic, and just had to see if I understand what is needed for my issue. At the age of 25 I became stressed in my life and started having anxiety attacks which in turn my body reacted by having diarrhea and nasty smelling gas. I can only assume I have an over abundance of candida in my body. I have had ear infections, yeast infections in the past which was treated with antibiotics.. I tried many preventative gas remedies to no avail, try to stay away from pop, candy most sugar except fruit. I have been underweight all of my life so do worry about how to gain weight. Its going on 28 yrs. with this issue I can't find anything that keeps my body from producing smelly gas. The medical industry has no help except antibiotics which I refuse to take anymore. I have been using the juice of 1 lemon 1/2 tsp baking soda with 1/2 glass of water s 2 daily for a week. It has cut down on the gas but I still am having issues. Did I understand you right that this will help with the over abundance of gas? Is there anything else I need to do.

Thank You so much for your time and sharing your wisdom.

The baking soda should be added more (a little more then 1/2 teas), and lemon and baking soda is added to 4 times a day, empty stomach, but never before meals. The weight gain in my opinion is hemp oil and salmon fish oil, 1000 mg each, and the weight should gain within a week or two, if not write back to me, you could have other issues of protein deficient, especially BCAA, and others, but I feel it is not appropriate now until the other conditions is resolved.

Part of the problem of gaseous production has to do with taking beans and peanuts, and somewhat of wheat products. Switching all wheat to rice, especially brown rice will eliminate those. Fruits, you should abstain temporarily (at least a month) are the high sugar kinds, especially pineapples, bananas, etc, See USDA nutritional database.
