Paleo diets are flavour of the month, but in fact they have been around for many decades. Is this the correct eating approach when it comes to Candida eradication?
Greetings, greetings greetings. I got a question in from somebody. “Is the paleo diet good to get rid of candida?” Let’s have a look at that one. I’m not sure if I’ve done a video previously on paleo diet.
Paleo diets are very interesting. Paleo diets have been around for thousands of years. In fact, my favorite book written in the 80s was called Paleolithic Prescription by Dr.s Eaton and Connor, a very good book. I can remember reading that book a long time ago thinking, “Wow, this is how I’ll be eating for a long time. High protein.” This has become quite a faddy kind of thing now, eating nuts and eating seeds and eatings meats and organ meats and bone broths, and these sorts of things. But is it a good way to get rid of candida?
Well, I can tell you now there’s really no good particular diet to get rid of candida, because really the diet varies in some degree from person to person. The main tenets of a good anti-candida diet are taking the sugars out, the sodas out, the crap food out of the diet like pizzas and just crappy food, and by eating a higher quality diet.
Now, vegans can follow a candida diet, paleos can follow a candida diet, Muslims can follow that, Catholics can follow that. It doesn’t matter what your belief system is because to me paleo is just another belief system.
Chances are if you’re eating very healthy like me, you’re probably eating kind of paleo already anyway. I would tend to be careful of really wacky or way out diets, and some of these diets are pretty crazy. I’m not going to mention some of them, but we’ve got some carbohydrate type of diets that I think are a little bit far fetched and way out. Paleo is quite a good approach, but it doesn’t suit some people. Some people are not really going to like eating meat, for example. They’re going to be looking at other kind of proteins.
I prefer this paleo approach because I feel eating this is a good level of satiety. You feel full when you’ve eaten some type of animal protein. I believe also it’s conducive for health. It builds good blood health, good digestive health.
I get a little bit concerned with people who don’t eat any meat at all, who just tend to eat vegetables and grains. I find that quite a difficult approach for candida. I find it a difficult approach to stop bloating and gas and bowel issues. You’ve got issues with sugars and fibers in many different kinds of vegetables.
If you’ve got poor bacteria, it can create a lot of digestive discomfort. If you’ve got issues with paleo and particularly with meat, try eggs. There are many different types of meats you can eat on a paleo approach. Maybe you don’t like red meat, which I’m not a huge fan of. Maybe fish is better, some salmon or some sardines or fresh white filets. I’m not a big fan of shellfish or the bottom feeders. I get a bit concerned.
I just read an interesting article now on the amount of plastic found in bottom feeders for example. Fragments, because there’s so many trillion tons of plastic in the ocean now, it’s actually making its way into crustaceans as well. We have to be careful…
