Candida Directory: The Comprehensive Guidebook to Yeast-Free Livingby Maureen O'Shea
Candida albicans, in its benign state, lives quietly within our bodies. But when confronted with wide-spectrum antibiotics, birth control pills, steroids, and a sugar-rich diet, this yeast can proliferate, causing a variety of medical problems. Depression, anxiety, tiredness, allergies, and migraine headaches are some of the symptoms. In the past, besides medication, this disease has been treated with a strict carbohydrate-free diet that not only starved the Candida, but also starved the patient.
Former Candida sufferer Helen Gustafson and nutritional consultant Maureen O'Shea join forces to create this user-friendly manual for coping with Candida. A symptom chart leads you through the three stages of a specially taliored diet.
With over 60 recipes contributed by such well-known chefs as Marion Cunningham, Nasari David, Wolfgang Puck, and Alice Waters, each stage is a veritable feast of possibilities.
This innovative collection of exciting dishes would not be complete without an alphabetical listing of different foods and when they are allowed on the diet. Meal plans and sources for nutritional supplements and anti fungal preparations are presented in an easy-to-use format. The Candida Directory is indeed the most effective tool you can use to put yourself back on the road to recovery and optimum health.

There have been many good books about dealing with systemic yeast and this is one of them. The large print is easy to read, the explanations are simple, the recipes are great(!) and no other book I've seen has an alphabetical food directory in the back. You can easily see which foods you can and cannot have. A wonderful resource for those trying to have a normal life and good food while getting rid of the yeast.
