Diet restrictions/ideas

Currently doing a gluten/wheat free, dairy free, low sugar diet.

Is there any other things people have found to make a difference?

Hi Quilter! (that used to be a passion of mine!)

Welcome to the community!

I only edited your post to add a title so that you will get more views and hopefully more responses.

You will find the number of diets that Lyme patients use more varied than the people that have Lyme disease. We all need something different in our diets, so no one diet works (heck, not even just 2 or 3) for every one with Lyme and company.

But - it can be really helpful to hear what others are doing so you can try it too sometimes - just pay attention to what your body is telling you about the diets.

What works for me is low carb, low grain, low dairy, no sugars (only honey occasionally and stevia).

Thank you both for the diet thoughts
I have systemic Candida so I struggle with sugar craving.

Are you in treatment for the Candida?

If you are, then this may not be a good idea, but apple cider vinegar (acv) can help eliminate candida in the mouth all the way down to the gut. I've not had a lot of issues with Candida between the acv and probiotics, and getting away from the sugars.

Also, I would encourage you to start using stevia to sweeten things. It's highly concentrated, so you will only use a very tiny amount compared to sugar, but it will not encourage the candida. Some brands taste better than others, but it will help you get through those sugar cravings! Just watch for added sugars in the foods you eat as well.
