In Terms Of Candida And Bad Food - Where Do I Stand On Condiments, Sauces, Gravy (And Pasta) Etc - Which Is Safe?

5 posts in this topic

My meals are made a lot more exciting with a little bit of added salt and gravy (I use granules for speed, I assume they aren't great for me?) I want "candida-safe" alternatives for sauces, gravy etc because the food itself is healthy but the gravy might be making it not so good for me I fear.

Also, where do I stand on pasta - Good or bad?

Avoid them as much as possible. You could use spices like garlic, basil, and pepper to season your food. It may taste more bland at first, but you'll get used to it. As for pasta, gluten free pasta is usually better but if you are avoiding grains then you should avoid any type of pasta. Or you could slowly start to cut down on gravy and pasta if the diet is too restrictive for you. You don't have to be extreme, even though most anti-candida diets do require a lot of discipline at first to clear off the candida.

Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...

Mustard. It's good for you, in fact, provided they Didn't add any chemicals to it. Read the label. Lemon is a nice sauce. And about the best seasoning there is. Lemon & butter is even better, but. Assume you aren't eating butter. Try olive oil.

Buy spaghetti squash for noodles.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
