I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with the Candida diet. It's not just eliminating bread and replacing with rice cakes. To achieve gluten free living you eliminate anything that is made from wheat: pasta, bread, baked goods, some soy sauces, etc. There are MANY products that have wheat so you have to get into reading labels. BUT, there are many products that we CAN eat: pastas and breads made from rice, quinoa, spelt, for example. If you look into the gluten-free diet for Celiac patients, you might find some interesting things there. Of course, fresh vegetables, fruits, protein (from meat or other sources) are highly recommended, as well
There are gluten-free bakeries in the US, now, and I've just found my new favorite product line for brownies, chocolate cake, muffins, pancakes and waffles. The company is called "Namaste" and you can find it online.
Thank you for YOUR advice on cranial osteopathy. . . . I'll try it. Although, I usually just bend over and touch my toes. When it gets really bad I lay down for awhile, eat, or have a glass of wine. I'm anxious for the cooler weather of fall and winter to see if THAT makes any difference. Keep me posted on your progress.
Have YOU found and new research?
