Book Description

15 Dec 1994
Candida albicans, in its benign state, lives quietly within our bodies. But when confronted with wide-spectrum antibiotics, birth control pills, steroids, and a sugar-rich diet, this yeast can proliferate, causing a variety of medical problems. Depression, anxiety, tiredness, allergies, and migraine headaches are some of the symptoms. In the past, besides medication, this disease has been treated with a strict carbohydrate-free diet that not only starved the Candida, but also starved the patient.

Former Candida sufferer Helen Gustafson and nutritional consultant Maureen O'Shea join forces to create this user-friendly manual for coping with Candida. A symptom chart leads you through the three stages of a specially taliored diet.

With over 60 recipes contributed by such well-known chefs as Marion Cunningham, Nasari David, Wolfgang Puck, and Alice Waters, each stage is a veritable feast of possibilities.

This innovative collection of exciting dishes would not be complete without an alphabetical listing of different foods and when they are allowed on the diet. Meal plans and sources for nutritional supplements and anti fungal preparations are presented in an easy-to-use format. The Candida Directory is indeed the most effective tool you can use to put yourself back on the road to recovery and optimum health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and very well put together. 25 Mar 2005
By PBKider - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read many books on this subject. The best thing about this book is that it gives you hope. 3 stages to this diet and easily explained with common sense and science. The recipes are easy and wonderful. There are appropriate lists of foods that help you see how to plan. This is not a "fad book" but brilliantly put together by women who know the subject and have lived the misery. There is simply not one negative I could say about this. It is the only book I've seen that gives a person a complete understanding of what is going on within the body, the consequences, and a way out that leaves you with a positive outlook. Gone are the absolutes of a bland menu. The ideas are new and undated. Everyone has their own version of things, as is said, but this is a plan that is possible to follow and also enjoy at the same time. Not kidding. The recipes are good enough for someone not suffering the condition also. Good for guys too. We can get this imbalance also. You can't lose.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the book I thought it would be... 5 Mar 2009
By Bookcat - Published on
There are many columns and lists of foods that are either good or bad but the layout often makes it difficult to interpret and some of the lists need far more clarification. Many of the recipes were just not things the average person needing to make a dietary transition would want to try. I found the Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook to be far more readable, user friendly, informative and a better bang for the buck.
