Question: What Are Some Grocery Tips Once Candida Is No Longer An Issue?
The primary focus should be on the types of foods you crave and desire. A common advice is to avoid shopping when hungry or bored as it can lead to impulsive choices. It’s essential to review your cart before checking out, ensuring you only have items you genuinely want and need.
When considering places to shop, farmer’s markets or outlets that sell locally grown food are preferred. These markets often have a selection of high-quality produce. While supermarkets can be good for non-food items, they might not always offer the freshest fruits and vegetables. It’s beneficial to source produce from local farmers or organic grocery stores that sell certified organic items.
An essential tip is to focus on the outer perimeters of a supermarket. That’s where you find fresh perishables like dairy, meat, fruits, and vegetables. The inner aisles often contain processed foods that might not be ideal for a healthy diet. Some canned goods, like red kidney beans or sardines, can be exceptions if they’re of good quality.
If you’re thinking about bread, consider engaging with local bakers who can offer varieties like rye sourdough or pumpernickel. When looking for proteins, seek out free-range options for eggs, poultry, and lamb. For those who consume fish, it’s a nutritious addition, but make sure it’s sourced responsibly.
As for meats and poultry, it’s advisable to research and connect with local suppliers that offer clean, free-range options. Building a network of trusted suppliers can ensure that you consistently access high-quality produce. Remember, your dietary choices play a significant role in your overall health.

Question: How Can I Prevent Constipation After Overcoming Candida?
It’s essential first to determine if you had constipation before starting the Candida diet. Constipation might be related to lifestyle factors such as not getting enough physical activity, being stressed, or having a sedentary job.
Historical health books, primarily from the early 1900s to the 1960s, highlighted the importance of drinking water, regular walking, managing stress, and avoiding prolonged sitting. These factors still hold relevance today in managing constipation. If your constipation began after starting the Candida diet, it’s crucial to assess the beneficial bacteria in your gut. Were they affected by any treatments or dietary changes you undertook?
In our book, Candida Crusher, there’s an extensive discussion on this topic. The book provides tips on foods that improve bowel flora, soothe the digestive tract, and many general hints for alleviating constipation. Here are some suggestions:
- Walk for at least 15-30 minutes daily.
- Incorporate fermented or cultured foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, and kefir into your diet.
- Chew your food slowly, which stimulates digestion.
- Engage in activities that activate the rest-and-digest nervous system, like meditation or deep breathing exercises.
- Avoid regular stressors like constantly checking social media.
- Small amounts of lemon juice and olive oil can help with constipation.
- Consider a quality enzyme-probiotic formulation like our CanXida Restore product. It has been beneficial for many in alleviating constipation.
- If you suspect a Candida overgrowth, our CanXida Remove product can help cleanse the gut. Paired with CanXida Restore, it offers comprehensive support.
- Lastly, our product CanXida Rebuild is designed to nourish the digestive system with essential nutrients.

Question: How Did I Contract Parasites?
Determining whether you actually have parasites is the first step. A comprehensive stool analysis with parasitology is the most definitive test for parasite diagnostics. This test involves three separate stool samples, using PCR testing which can detect even fragments or fingerprints of parasites, including eggs.
Why might someone contract a parasite? Factors include travel history, contact with domestic animals, personal hygiene, and the state of one’s immune system. Those with a strong immune and digestive system often eliminate parasites quickly. However, if your immune resistance is low, you might be more susceptible. If you believe you have a parasite, consider where you might have traveled or been exposed in the past year. It’s essential to address any detected parasites immediately and implement preventive measures.
Blastocystis Hominis is currently a common parasite, possibly due to the increase in global air travel. It’s essential to remain aware of your health and the potential risks. For those suspecting a yeast infection, we recommend our Candida quiz. Our CanXida Remove product has received positive feedback for treating parasite infections. Paired with CanXida Restore, our enzyme probiotic formula, both products are effective for eliminating parasites. However, it is advisable to conduct a stool test before and after treatment to determine the status of any infections.
