I'm sorry, but thats a load of bunk, every bit of carbohdrate you eat ends up as sugar in the body, brown rice, wholemeal bread, oatmeal, pasta, potatoes, fruit....... table sugar is no worse than wholemeal organic stone ground bread seived through the underware of ukranian pesants.

Uhm sorry but where did i say anythign about carbohydrates? There was no bunk.
Sugar IS the thing that feeds to candida.. and yes carbs turn to sugar so they feed it. This is exactly why you dont eat fruit on the candida diet and you only eat limited complex carbs and if you arnt progressing you then cut out the carbs.
You clearly know nothing about the candida diet.
A healthy body may be able to keep blood sugar levels correct but lots of people with suspected candida are very ill and blood sugar issues are one of their many problems. Its nothing to do with Carbs equalling more sugar floating around the body... it's carbs turning to sugar and the yeast in the digestive system thrives on it.
If you can find one person who has cured a serious case of candida with only medication then i may consider your statement even slightly true. But after years of research and speaking to people i have found none. You get nowhere without the diet. And plus, its damn near impossible to find a doctor who even takes the condition seriously let alone prescribe anything.
There are "anti-Candida" diets although I find them nearly impossible to adhere to... however, that is me.
There are many natural anti-fungals out there, including Coconut oil, Garlic and caprylic acid.
Pls visit a healthfood store and ask the ppl who work there.... they SHOULd know about it and how to better help u. Try hard to abstain from simple sugars/sweets. i also recommend Apple Cider Vinegar... helped me break the sugar and carbo addiction.
Candida does cause sugar cravings. The simple sugars do feed the candida. It is my opinion that candida thrives in acid bodies and veggies are alkaline. Simple sugars increase acids. The body treats some sugars different than others in the way the body uses them. Neither of us are biologists trained in the chemical processes of the body so for you to come down on the other poster is rude and classless. Yes candida does cause sugar craving and yes simple sugar does feed the candida. Now unless you have a proven candida theory you want to share with us and tell us how to correct it other than some drug we are all ears. In your case a little knowledge really is a dangerous thing.
