Hello and welcome! I’m a UX & UI designer and food enthusiast and was recently told that I have Candidiasis. In the grand scheme of things it’s not a huge deal, but I’ve been dealing with chronic tiredness for nearly 10 years and enough is enough.
So right now I’m on an adventure to help detox my body and move towards living a healthier life for me.
I’d like to say up front that I’m not a nutritionist or doctor nor do I have any qualifications in this, so everything posted on my blog is simply my own observation of the diet.
Nobody can start an anti-candida diet (ACD) without a healthcare practitioner so don’t even try – you have to very carefully balance your food with a regimen of supplements. This isn’t something you can self-diagnose and quickly fix yourself, so make sure you have help.
I’m still in the early days of the extreme detox version of the diet so this blog is to help me share my experiences, recipes and thoughts on ACD in the hopes that it may help others online.
My main reason for doing this is because when I was first diagnosed I also tried to find resources and recipes online and what I was really surprised by is how little information there is available on ACD online. What I was more surprised about is how much misinformation there is! So many people are on a version of ACD as a fad weight-loss diet (idiots!) and the information they provide online is plain false.
Another thing that I’ve discovered is that every body is different – I think fundamentally there is no 1 right anti-candida diet for all people so you will have to learn to tune into the signs your body is giving you and adapt as you go.
I’m based on Ireland so I may also post information for an Irish audience on the best place to buy your supplements and food as I go to help us all get the best diet for our bodies and for our pockets!
I’m looking forward to sharing my ideas with you.
