Specific Carbohydrate Diets Problem With Candida Sufferers

Someone asked if anyone has done the specific carbohydrate diet for candida overgrowth and whether it has any effect on it. She suspects it would have some. It is a current very successful autism diet, but really used to cure things like celiac disease, ulcerative colitis. It allows simple sugars (mono-saccharides) but not others. With candida, I would think allowing honey and so much fruit would be a problem.

One problem with the SCD is that this diet prohibits fermentable carbohydrates in the diet. What this means is fermentation by the ‘good’ bacteria is unduly limited, while you are still putting foods in there that are fermentable by the ‘bad’ bacteria and by the neutrals. This goes against millennia of evolution in which the good bacteria have controlled the bad in the human gut. The diet allows pre-fermented food and bacterial culture, but the good bacteria, denied the food they need, may fail to populate the colon walls like they are supposed to.

Another problem is that people with Crohn’s, colitis and IBD have low glutathione, an antioxidant and detoxifier that can be completely depleted in the bowel lining at the site of injury. But, the SCD also makes the precursors to make more glutathione (cold-processed whey) an illegal food, so how are you going to make the quantity of your natural master antioxidant and detoxifier that regaining your health calls for? Using both of these products, you may find you don’t need the restrictive SCD at all, and can go back to regular non-SCD diet. The majority has found that using these foods, or even relaxing the SCD to include these foods is very beneficial.
