Can't recommend it: This is used by traditional healers in india and southeast asia. A quick look at the nih database showed the flour to contain some known spirostane neurotoxins, (paralyze rats; int j foo sci health 2004 & 2009), two articles suggesting it can improve glucose tolerance in rats, and one that it kills cell cultures.

Witch type of food are source of carbohydrate?

Sugars: Carbohydrates are molecules composed of carbon and water (hydrate). These are readily found in most plant based foods such as starches (grains, breads, cereals, potatoes). They are also available in sweets such as candies and processed foods. Most soda pop that is not labeled "diet" contain lots of sugar. I would suggest using more natural and less refined sources of this. ...Read more

How many cups of coffee are safe on a low sodium diet?

How many cups of coffee are safe on a low sodium diet?

Coffee: does not have much sodium in it. It has potassium, which is not sodium and helps regulate nerve/muscle tone. There isn't much of a restriction based on the sodium. Often people have limits on how much fluid. Typically about 1 to 2 liters a day and the coffee can be a lot of all the fluid they should take in... so... 300 cc... 1-2 cups if fluid restriction. ...Read more

When can I eat ezekiel bread on the candida diet?

In late stages: There's no consensus on the optimal candida diet but the most important thing to avoid are sugars & simple carbs. Most experts advise avoiding all grains initially, but as one improves moderate non-gluten grains like quinoa can be used. It's best to avoid gluten (which ezekiel bread has) but towards the end can try some. See http://www.Holisticmd.Org/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/candidadiet.Pdf. ...Read more

Be cautious: This is a self-styled "candida expert", a lay activist, who self-diagnosed candida overgrowth and has encouraged others to do the same, and wrote a diet book. Most mainstream physicians are unconvinced that this is the key to a health revolution. I would suggest that instead, you for a relationship with an evidence-based holistic practitioner as your guide in a confusing area. ...Read more

"Candida diet": Although suggested by some alternative medicine practitioners, there is very little evidence to suggest that Candida overgrowth actually occurs. There are no clinical trials that show a candida cleanse diet treats anything. However, stopping sugar and processed foods is probably a good idea anyway. No particular multivitamin is better than the others. Good luck. ...Read more

I am an 18 year old girl who's dreading having to go on the Candida diet to cure my overgrowth symptoms? Is there any way to cure it without diet?

Sorry but not really: Few people enjoy going on a candida diet but it's impossible to treat well without a proper diet. Think of candida as a fire simmering in your intestines. Taking antifungals is like pouring water on the fire, but continuing to eat sweets is like pouring gas on the fire- you can't put it out if you keep fueling it. But you can use sweeteners like xylitol & stevia, and it's temporary- see comment: ...Read more
