Gluten Intolerance on a Candida Diet – Issues with Eating Regular Wheat
I wonder how many of you have problems eating only plain wheat (whole grain) without yeast. The candida diet allows wheat, and if you have a problem with it, your candida sensitivity is probably developed by your body’s gluten intolerance, because my theory is that gluten intolerance causes leaky gut ( it’s a fact) and that leaky gut causes yeast hypersensitivity (like a yeast allergy). So I think we all have an underlying disorder that is causing this problem. The disorder I most suspect is gluten intolerance, as gluten is present in many foods and can cause considerable damage to the intestines.
I have candida and also suffer from leaky gut. My understanding is that there are a number of factors that can contribute to leaky gut. I believe it comes down to the fact that candida is in pain and has developed the perfect environment for candida to overgrow through things like antibiotics and the like. which have an impact on the intestinal mucosa, causing leaky gut.
Personally, I don’t know if I have any problems with wheat. A doctor told me this while testing me with a strange acupuncture machine. I’ve never had symptoms with this before, until I had symptoms for “all” grains and sugar. I don’t know if the candida causes this intolerance or if the intolerance is the cause of the candida. The only thing I know is that when I was on a wheat-free (but high-sugar) diet, my condition worsened.
