Hey so its been a while since I've been on here. Was just wondering if anyone has any tips or pointers when with the candida diet, like;
when to introduce antifungals (they severely break me out),
when and how to introduce probiotics/ fermented foods ( probiotics badly break me out, usually constipate me, fermented foods like sauerkraut make my acne way worse (possibly feeding the candida?).
My liver is also toxic, I really need to do liver flushes but I wont risk them until my digestion has normalised. I think what I'm really is the good bacteria, I have been battling IBS C for the past few years but keep regular with intense exercise every 2 days and magnesium citrate.
I've read before that stomach acid is key to digestion along with probiotics, so I started supplementing with Betaine HCL with Pepsin but I think it breaks me out more?
Anyways my diet is pretty clean, have a lot of food intolerances, no dairy, gluten, sugar, limited amount of carbs( sweet potato, brown rice), eat lots of greens.
Have cut out all grains since the start of the new year (cheated a few times though )
I supplement with glutamine for the gut. I drink ridiculous amounts of bone broth!
I'm male, 20 years old, have acne since I was 13, IBS C since 18.
Almost every supplement breaks me out, why?! All comments and advice are welcome , except accutane worshippers haha
