I am changing my diet in an attempt to treat candida, and although I am eating leafy greens,bananas, and drinking one and a half litres of good spring water each day, I'm quite constipated and it is causing no end of problems as the candida recycles round my body instead of being eliminated, any sage advice out there please.
Hello. If you read my posts you will find I'm a great believer in the use of oils to keep your stools soft. From what I understand Candida is a yeast build up in your intestines that can spread to other parts of your body. Yeast needs sugar and water to multiply so a good start would be to cut down on sugar intake. You can't cut down on water as it is essential to keeping your stools soft......so the only thing I can suggest is to consume an inhibitor that will stop the yeast from multiplying in your gut. Yeast cannot thrive in oil so if you make an effort to consume more oil it will do two things 1/ inhibit the yeast build up and 2/ keep your stools soft to avoid constipation.
Good luck, but don't give up if you don't get immediate results. These things sometimes take a while to resolve themselves. The yeast already in your system will take a while to dissipate even if you stop the activity within your intestines, so be patient.
Dear Kennyboy thanks for advice re oil in my diet for constipation, I bought some good cold pressed olive oil and I just take 3 to 4 swigs a day as I quite like the flavor. the oil has made a great difference ,after about 4 days it began to work, and I drink about one and a half litres of good spring water a day although I'm now being told that I should be drinking sterilised water,as apparently it's supposed to be better,I dont know,anyway oil is great and thanks again.
