"A valuable, timely, and life-enhancing book...the single information source for everything known to date about a heretofore unrecognized clinical entity--the Candida Syndrome." -- Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D., Editor, Journal Of Orthomolecular Medicine
I wish there was a more recent edition of this book that does not suggest using nystatin (which I did not use myself), but it is still a book I highly recommend having on your bookshelf! I have not seen a better questionnaire, and the diet is an excellent place to start. You may find you can mix "Phases" of the diet, for example you might be able to add oatmeal or rice to the "Phase-1" diet, depending on your personal food tolerances. I would suggest consulting a physician who practices holistic medicine (and can test for food sensitivities), and picking up another book or two on Candida for additional information. Changing your diet is the most powerful tool you can use to eradicate Candida, and is essential. And when you fall off your good diet, this is a good book to go back to, to help get on a good diet again!
