Yes eliminating sugar in my diet is usually the first factor in me gaining remission.
Personally I know my UC was caused primarily by Candida and chronic dehydration from consuming excessive amounts of sugar, bread, coffee and alcohol (coupled w/many other lifestyle factors) which led to the acidosis of my body and eventual inflammation of the gut.
Carbohydrates/sugars are still in the process of being digested when they enter your colon and if candida is continually being fed, it grows. Enter mitochondrial dysfunction (your colonic cells running on empty calories, expelling toxins). Enter leaky gut syndrome. Prolonged inflammation develops ulceration and so on.
Scientific literature showing an immunological link b/w candida and crohn's patients.
