Decades ago I suffered from a severe imbalance of candida albicans. I lived with food cravings and mood swings, phantom aches, and too often a sore throat. In the 1980's, no one had heard about candida albicans and the book The Yeast Connection was finally out in print.
I was fortunate to find a nutrutionist who was begining to study candida albicans with a professor at McGill University in Montreal (Canada). I became part of their early trials as they evaluated their hypotheses.
Food played a major part in getting healthy. Six months of a very strict elimination diet was not easy but my efforts paid off.
Today I found a website that excellently describes the food side and other considerations.
