so i'm pretty sure i have some yeast issues, i was on antibiotics several times a few years ago went on birth control shortly after and then got pregnant right after going off birth control.  since having my daughter last year my binge eating disorder that ive had for maybe 7 years got completely out of hand and i went from the girl who hadn't touched a cupcake in maybe 12 years to one who eats them by the box which of course is the worst for the yeast im sure but even when i thought i was eating "healthy" for so many years, my diet was mostly whole grains, dairy, fruit, nuts etc all things that feed yeast. and had never heard of candida, probiotics let alone fermented foods so of course i wish i had discovered all this before having a child but anyway...

 

my boyfriend really wants me at the renfrew center for eating disorders for the binging problem but i think a lot of it is sugar addiction and yeast especially after reading the body ecology diet which says that it does cure eating disorders and maybe if i got that worked out, i'd be better off. i did meet with the nutritionist at renfrew and she completely disregarded my concerns about sugar, gluten etc and recommended a "balanced diet" mostly composed of grains.  

 

my boyfriend doesn't think the yeast issue is a real problem and thinks i'm just off on another fad diet, so basically what i'm asking for most of all is any good online sources of information i could show him that are put out by doctors; he wont buy anything from a naturopath, books like body ecology, things i read on mothering.com etc lol so any good reputable sources on the dangers of candida overgrowth and the elimination diet that i could use to gain his support would be greatly appreciated! sorry for rambling...

Most traditionally trained nutritionists go off of the gov't food pyramid and basic digestion/trying to balance the diet according to the USDA pyramid (and Harvard medical has come out and blasted them at least on the dairy requirement).

 

I'm familiar with body ecology diet but it's not the first place to go for candida resolution.  Not by a longshot.  The go-to diet is GAPS and the person that developed it is a neurologist who went back to study nutrition after watching how food affected the neurology of her own child.  Based on all of that, she developed the GAPS program.

And a glance at the front page shows one of the questions listed: "Did you or your child have digestive problems and allergies, was a fussy eater, then in late teens become anorexic or bulimic? "

 
Maybe this would work better for him?  And for you.  It's not an easy program and there are plenty of things you can do to help yourself along with the cravings and the die-off symptoms, but this would at least get him on board.
 
And if you need the assistance of a health coach, click the link in my siggy.
 
Hope this helps!

Thanks.  My serious issue with finding a nutrition program was with finding one that was accredited but was more holistic.  It seemed that you couldn't manage to find a didactic/RD track without the traditional/gov't pyramid.  Horrible--despite the fact that ADA has FINALLY opened up a group for RDs on holistic nutrition but have no holistic nutrition accredited schools.  >:(  So the place I'm finally pursuing my MS is accredited as a university, but not with the ADA... which is fine, because the way healthcare is going, I honestly think a traditional RD-track nutrition degree would undermine my credibility in the "new world" of health and health care... kwim?

 

I love my job, and although I certainly have people that need health with general health goals, seriously half of my client base is more serious problems (diabetes, behavior/development issues in children, food allergies/intolerances) and that contingent is growing.  It's really hard to watch people suffer.  :(
