I have rcently been diagnosed with Candida, I think I have had this problem for a long least a year, starting soon after a colonoscopy...I am now trying to learn to eat the Candida way, and don't mind the foods on the list, I just need to learn to cook them to make them taste good...I need a breakfast bread, salad dressing, I normally have used Hidden Valley Ranch, making it at home with my mayonnaise. Also, I normally use Shedd Spread margarine, because I do not like butter, and don't care for milk. I would like to know ways to use the yogurt( don't care for the sour milk taste) Right now I am in my 3rd day...of trying to survive...knowing it may take months. Is corn meal acceptable with the candida food list...or is there another thing to use to bread fish? I would appreciate any help you might give me...thank you

Regina on August 29, 2010:

Once you get your system under control, the constipation will straighten up also. I suggest that you print of the list of foods and get what you can at whole foods. Happy shopping!

Candida Penis on August 08, 2009:


a penile yeast infection symptom in man In most cases it is treated with the same topical cream prescribed to women with vaginal yeast infections. These creams are available without a doctor’s prescription at your local pharmacy. Just remember, that if you’ve never experienced a penile yeast infection before, it’s a good idea to visit your doctor, get checked out, and take his treatment advice to experience effective relief.

thank you

How To Treat Candida on August 05, 2009:


If you regularly suffer from symptoms like headaches, fatigue, mood swings, poor concentration or sweet cravings, there's a good chance you might have too much of a yeast named Candida Albicans in your gut.

This nasty little yeast grows when other more beneficial microorganisms are killed by antibiotics or your immune system is temporarily weakened. The yeast particles release waste that escapes into your bloodstream, prompting an allergic reaction from your immune system.

there are a variety of dietary changes that you can make to improve your health. Refined sugar should be eliminated from your diet entirely as it encourages the growth of yeast. Sources of this sugar include honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, corn syrup, molasses, and the familiar white granular sugar. Be sure to read all labels carefully because these sugars are used in many products you may normally buy off the grocery store shelves. Don't eat fruit - or drink fruit juices - as they contain natural sugars that promote the growth of yeast. Don't drink beer, wine or liquor as the alcohol also provides sugar, and many of these products are fermented with yeast.

keeping your immune system, "friendly" bacteria, and Candida in proper balance can be a lot of work; but it's a small price to pay to reclaim your good health and transform your life.

Thank you

Thank you, I will add them to the list.

Deb on June 24, 2008:

You do not have tomatoes or avocado listed as allowable foods, but you use them in your recipes. I assume they are fine and thought you might want to add them. Hope you don't think I'm being nit picky, just noticed lots of people find and apprecitate your pages, as do I and it looks like you try to keep it up to date and informative so I thought you would want to add them.
