Book Description

21 July 2003

In this fully updated edition of the classic health bestseller, Leon Chaitow shows how to detect whether yeast is your problem and provides a comprehensive non-drug approach to the treatment of Candida, providing help and advice for sufferers of conditions such as IBS, cystitis, thrush, PMT, fatigue, muscular pain, allergies and many more.

Candida Albicans, a yeast that lives inside all of us, normally presents no health problems, but today’s widespread use of antibiotics, contraceptive pills and steroids, as well as a sugar-rich diet, can cause a proliferation of this parasite yeast leading to a whole host of possible health problems.

Candida Albicans can be responsible for such conditions as depression, anxiety, irritability, IBS, constipation, heartburn, allergies, muscular pain, diarrhoea, vaginitis, acne, cystitis, bloatedness, tiredness, migraine, hopelessness, thrush, PMT, and other menstrual problems.

Fully updated with all the latest medical research, this book provides you with a clear, accessible and practical guide to first determining whether Candida is your problem, and then outlining the ways in which you can fight and prevent it.

The book contains information on the full rage of complementary and orthodox treatments available, as well as an anti-Candida diet and advice on which supplements, prebiotics, probiotics and herbal extracts to take to control Candida naturally.

Also includes information on what causes Candida and the preventative measures that can be taken.

Product Description

Review

"What I appreciate most is the author's emphasis on non-drug therapies to support reclaiming a healthy internal environment. He uses the latest research and his own clinical experience to show how to detect whether yeast is the problem behind your ills." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Candida albicans is a yeast which exists inside all of us and normally presents no problems, but today’s widespread use of broad spectrum antibiotics, contraceptive pills and steroids, as well as a sugar-rich diet, can cause a proliferation of this parasite yeast.

Its spread can often be the root cause of a wide variety of problems – ME/chronic fatigue syndrome; depression; anxiety; irritability; diarrhoea; bloatedness; heartburn; tiredness; allergies; acne; migraine; cystitis; menstrual problems, etc. Leon Chaitow shows how to detect whether yeast is your problem, and provides a comprehensive and non-drug programme for its control.

LEON CHAITOW, osteopath, naturopath and acupuncturist, is a leading international practitioner and successful author of a wide range of health books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and informative book 29 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read the book and have been on the diet for a week now. The book is very informative and useful. There are many natural anti fungal and anti bacterial supplements and remedies to choose from so you have a wide range of products to choose depending on the availability of the products around your area.

I clearly can't tell how effective the diet is as I have been on it for a week now, but I will update my review every 2-3 weeks if I notice great changes, the reason why I have bought this book is because I have had recurrent thrush, yeast infections and other type of infections as well as depression for the past 2 years. I have been to doctors a lot but they all give me the same anti fungal drugs and antibiotics which don't solve my problem and just temporarily make my infections go away (they keep coming back even stronger than before each time!) So I've decided to go for the natural way of healing myself and this book is a GREAT guide for me.

-------

One month later:

I am feeling much better after being on the diet. I have completely stopped eating yeast and other sugar products, and I am regularly taking my natural antibiotics and antifungals. The physical difference is that I have a great body now (the purpose of the diet wasn't really getting flat abs, etc. however I did lose weight and I look much better). Around 2-3 weeks after being on the diet, I had some candida-die off symptoms like headache, constantly being tired and thrush (all these are mentioned in the book). However, now I don't have any die off symptoms that I know off. I am very glad to have purchased this book. I am generally happier and more energetic. I do suggest this book to anyone who suffers from candida symptoms. However, it is worth mentioning that this book is not the only source of information I use throughout my diet (I have 3 other books on this subject, but in general I found this book the most useful one). Good luck everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative 19 July 2009
Format:Paperback
I've read many books on this subject and this is probably my favourite. I found the section on supplements and quantites to take very useful if you are dealing with candida without the help of a nutritionist. There also also case studies at the back of people who have done the candida diet, used the supplements, and got much better, which is very inspiring. I've been on the candida diet for 5 weeks now and this book has given me loads more tips and information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book yet on Candid Albicans 6 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read so much on Candida, I feel almost an expert. This book really has helped me to adjust my diet, so that once and for all I can overcome the overgrowth of this dibilitating decease.
The only thing is, as expensive as nutritionist are, I feel that we may (up to the individual)have to have a blood test, and a consultation, just to make sure we are not difficient in a vital vitamin or mineral, which could lead to other problems, especially as the diet is so restrictive, which is pretty much what the authour seems to encourage. The only thing is I loaned it to my friend, and haven't seen it since, She also said what an informative and helpful book it is, and could not put it down. Also, it has some recipies, which I have adjusted to my own taste. Hope this helps.

Best book I have read so far on Candida. It is worth doing a bit of research yourself by doing searches on internet too.
