Yeast Connection & Women's Health

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Tue, 05/22/2007 - 8:21am.

I think for anyone that is dealing with CRC, they should start here. It's the best source of information I have found, teaching you so much about the condition and possible irritants that can make you sick.

 

The Yeast Connection Cookbook

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Tue, 05/22/2007 - 8:38am.

If you are struggling with the elimination part of the diet, this is a handy little book to have. I actually bought this book first. It was the book that helped me to make "the yeast connection" in my own life.

It has recipes, a symptoms checklist, and loads of information on possible triggers.

 

The Candida Albican Yeast-Free Cookbook

This isn't a bad cookbook to have. It has an interesting "rainbow diet" that helps you to make sure you are eating all the foods you need (to get all the nutrients you need). It was just nice to have different recipes that didn't involve using flours and baking.

 

Restoring Your Digestive Health

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Tue, 05/22/2007 - 8:56am.

This is a fantastic book if you want to learn every detail of the digestive process. It covers so many issues, talks about different GI disorders (though it leans more towards Crohn's, it still talks about Candidiasis often), and gives you a lot to think about. There is information I don't support fully in this book, mainly some of the risky things he promotes like unpasteurized milk, though I know people use it and swear by it. *shrug*

 

Beat Candida

This has been suggested to me by other's who love it. I have yet to read it myself.

 

The Maker's Diet

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Sun, 05/27/2007 - 4:32pm.

This was an interesting read. It didn't help me with my Candida specifically, and I found it focussed on problems outside of what I am going through. It has a lot of "religious inspiration" throughout, which could either appeal to you or turn you off. It's not a book I use, but I enjoyed reading it. It certainly adds a whole new spin on things and gives you a lot of new ideas to explore.

 

Beat Fatigue Handbook

Again, not a book I have read, but one that I have heard about regularly.

 

Nourishing Traditions

Fallon sometimes takes hard hits for being a bit extreme in her theories (but what book doesn't take some extreme positions in this genre?). Having said that, she appeals to many who found her book useful.
