Hi Katrina. This sounds so familiar. For month after month I tried to battle yeast. I did what I thought was everything right. My diet was, and still is, based around Dr. Burrasacano's anti- candida diet (works).

It was only after keeping a detailed journal that I discovered that I was continually giving myself yeast. I guess I just didn't know where to look for it. But journaling will help you realize what's going on.

For me, I had to eliminate ALL fruit. No berries, nothing. I can only eat meat (no pork), nuts, eggs, starch free veggies, avocados only. No corn, peas, or carrots, or sweet potatoes or any potatoes for that matter. Check out Burrascano's diet. Doing that really helped me.

Yet, I still would have to take some diflucan here and there, so I was missing something. I found that I was giving myself yeast with topical stuff (lotions, shampoo, hair gel, etc), mouthwash (caramel), toothpaste (zyletol), shampoo (sugars or starch) and worst of all, supplements.

I had to search for supplements with no sugar, absolutely no sugar substitutes, and no starch. It's not just the sugar, it's the starch that feeds the yeast. Nothing fermented. No soy sauce, no vinager (except apple cider vinager), so that for me means no condiments.

It took me eight months to figure this out (long tedious process). Also dairy. I only just found out that cheese causes yeast. I thought I could eat the soft cheeses, but doc says, no.

My lyme doc said that almost every lyme patient he's had is allergic to dairy (most people don't know they are). I didn't think it bothered me, but apparently it's not good for me. So, now I have to go off dairy. Bummer, but if it gets me there, I'll do it! :)

--Keep an open mind about everything. Also, remember to visit ACTIVISM (we can change things together).
