For the last 10 years I have struggled with chronic yeast infections. I have also had major problems losing weight (yo-yo), bad PMS, painful irregular cycles, acne, etc. I am starting to realize I likely have candida.
I have done the research and established the eating program I need to be on (no sugar, grains, etc.). I am currently breastfeeding an 11 month old baby who eats very little solid food (his choice) and I intend to breastfeed him for at least another year and hopefully longer. I also will likely conceive again before I stop breastfeeding him.
I feel like I need to do the candida diet but I'm a bit worried about the effect the yeast die-off will have on him. Any experience with this?
FWIW, I actually eat a fairly decent diet now although I am trying to give up sugar. I have been shifting towards a traditional foods diet so I eat very little processed food and although giving up all sugar-related products and grains will be tough, I'm in a better position than I've ever been to make it work.
