Dr. Stoll, which authority is correct?

Posted by Alexa on September 30, 1999 at 10:52:05:

Dr. Stoll,

I am reading the book you've recommended on the web entitled, The Yeast Connection (Crook, 98). In this book, he recommends a diet called the caveman diet where all foods are allowed except: sugars, fruits, yeasts, refined carbs, corn, chocolate, dairy, wheat, food coloring, white atoes, tomatoes, eggs, rice, oats, coffee, tea, and anything you regularly consume.
On the other hand, I have read that Bob, from the bulletin board, recommends eating nothing except: cod, trout mackerel, pears, parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, sweet poratoes, yams, celery, zucchini, carrots, and peaches.
Which one do you recommend?

Thank you for your time and your efforts to make all your information public.

Sincerely,

Alexa

Hi, Alexa.

You probably are not going to like my response but I am not doing this as a popularity project.

Only your bodymind (unique to you) has the capacity to answer this for you. What works for you is what is right for you.

First, the e-diet is a diagnostic exercise NOT a way of life.

Second, NO ONE has a lock on the "right diet" for the planet. The reason I generally recommend the whole foods diet is that, in general, the most people will eventually get results from moving in that direction. That does not include people that need to ALSO find out more by doing the e-diet testing.

I know Doc Crook well. However, you will note that people who follow that diet to get rid of candida normally are still being treated after 2 years. Even at that, they are happy because, for the first time in many years, they feel a lot better.

By following the diet in Beth's book (regarding whole foods) the average treatment length for candida is between 3 and 6 months. By dealing with the LGS, within a year, their dietary restrictions will be a lot less. Go figure.

I hope this is making sense to you. If you have more questions, write again. If you have these questions, so must many others.

Walt

Walt,

Thank you for your timely response. The information you gave me was very helpful.
I have tried Beth's diet before, but my symptoms were still present. Maybe I didn't try it long enough, or maybe it wasn't strict enough to starve all the candida??
Why do you think people have to receive tx 2 years post Dr. Crook's diet? Conversely, why do you think Beth's diet resolves the problem w/in 3-6 months? I think the answers to those 2 questions would really turn on the light for me.
BTW -- What is LGS? You stated, "By dealing with the LGS, within a year, their dietary restrictions will be a lot less."

Thanks again for your time. I truly appreciate your efforts, and believe I am finally on the right track to a more enjoyable, less painful life.

Sincerely,
Alexa



Re: LGS definition - where to find it, the Glossary!

Alexa:

LGS is Leaky Gut Syndrome.

The easiest way to find out about unfamiliar words, acronyms, etc. is to refer to our Glossary, Which is available from the home page and from a link at the top and bottom of every post or reply that you read. Here it's labeled Glossary/Index.

The glossary also contains links to Dr. Stoll's articles and to categorical archives from discussions here.

Hope this helps!

Hi, Alexa.

The whole reason for Beth's book is so people actually CAN totally eliminate refined carbohydrates long enough for their system to readjust. Unless you were PERFECT with it, you didn't do it. Have you read the article on the homepage about this?

I think stopping the strtess of persistant withdrawal is one of the major reasons the PERFECT diet eliminates candida so much faster thatn Crook's diet does.

All I know is that I used Crook's diet for several years before learning from Beth how to do this right---although I had done it for myself for other reasons, I had not connected it to candida till then.

For those "Crooks years" I had a 90% relapse rate even after 2 years of compliance. Once we did the PERFECT diet, symptoms were gone within 3-6 months and, if people persisted with their SR and a reasonably good whole foods diet, there was only a 5% relapse rate.

THank you Walt. That really clears things up for me.
