I have been told I have Candida overgrowth. It is mostly affecting my skin. But after researching I can now relate several other nuisances I put up with are likely due to this overgrowth as well!
It has taken a long time to determine. I haven’t taken any antibiotics in 18 years, I’m not on medications and I haven’t been on a contraceptive pill in over 20 years, though I was on depo until 8 years ago.
I don’t have a sweet tooth so I rarely indulge in dessert and I am gluten intolerant so I don’t eat breads and pastas unless it’s from a sourdough starter exclusively and made with einkorn flour.
Anyhow, I’ve been put on a very restricted diet for the next 6 to 9 weeks and have to cut out red meat among a dozen others things. I can eat fish (though no one says what kind which I find odd because I know some fish are very high in mercury, but I guess mercury doesn’t feed Candida so the research on fish is not specific) and I can have the white meat of poultry and no pork.
What I’m wondering is if lamb is considered a red or white meat? I can’t find a solid answer and no one has an answer as to wether I can eat it during the 6 week restriction. I just bought a lamb and my freezer is full of it! I don’t have to eat it now I’m just wondering for diversity of food choices if I can eat lamb or not.
Also if anyone has experience with successfully eliminating Candida overgrowth please share your tips with me!
I know there are some herbs that will support me in the long run but I wonder if there are any that can really kick the yeast out of me like a cleanse?
