Hi all!

I'd like to hear some experiences from people who have tried this. I just ordered the book "Fungus Link" by Doug Kaufmann, and I'm hoping it will help me get out of this nasty flare I'm in right now. From what I've read in the past, some people have managed to get things completely under control by following this diet and I'd like to hear how they are doing now, how did it affect their everyday lives, is it a "cure" (did you flare again), so please, any experiences are welcome! Thank you in advance!

Candida overgrowth and an imbalance of gut ecology definitely played a part in my illness. If the same is true for you, an anti-candida diet, meds or supplements will help. Taking probiotics to reestablish the good gut flora will also be beneficial. There are alot of informative books on the subject. My favorite is Candida-Related Complex: What Your Doctor Might Be Missing.

In my experience, you can flare again if you get complacent and return to your former bad diet. My GP says he sees alot of folks who return every year or two with yeast problems... it's a cycle for some folks. You get to feeling good for so long, that you start "cheating" again here and there. Because you don't usually have immediate and obvious reactions, you cheat more, but eventually it catches up with you. It's kinda like crash diets for losing weight... it just doesn't work for the long-term. It has to be a commitment to a lifestyle change, not a temporary diet until you're "cured."


Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999
 
Therapeutic dose sulfasalazine, back on a pred taper for first flare in years. Down to 10 mg and feeling much better.
Probiotics, l-glutamine and fish oil caps. George's aloe vera juice and Mucosaheal.
