At Body Ecology, we recommend eliminating sugar until you’ve recovered from candida or have seen improvements in other areas of your health. We also recommend avoiding it as much as possible in order to preserve and maintain your gut healing.
Yes, this includes so-called natural sugars too. While you may think natural sugars like honey, agave, brown rice syrup, barley malt, and molasses are better than sugar, they’re still too sweet and can contribute to the ongoing acidosis of your body. These sweeteners can also feed candida. Using a smooth-tasting, one-to-one sugar substitute, like BE Sweet, known to be diabetic-safe and soothing to the gut, is an ideal alternative.
It’s also important to note that when you include fermented foods and drinks in your diet, you may find that you naturally crave sweets less and less. This is because fermented foods add the “sour taste” back into your diet, helping to combat too much reliance on the sweet taste. Fermented foods and drinks may help to rehydrate your body, balance your electrolyte levels, alkalize your blood, and buffer the effects of a sugar hangover.
