    Many times it does help as they can go hand and hand with each other.Try Caprylic acid...it's a component of Coconut. It puts holes in the yeast so that it dies. Diet along with this will help eliminate yeast sooner. I've not found it to be a cure...but does help the condition and just your overall health.

      Hello renee

      have you tried the diet yourself? I was so hoping it will cure the acid reflux I am getting so depressed you are the second person telling me it wont get rid of it. Losing my hopes already and its my first day. I am having cocunut virgin oil cold pressed 3 teaspoon daily, garlic and ginger tea and pau d acro tea to kill the yeast. And I am going to be adding probiotics and chicory root tea next week. And I am following this diet so carefully. My vitamin diffency isnt helping much with the situation.

      Unfortunately the acid reflux is sometimes a problem with the opening from your stomach...so diet can help calm it down...but unfortunately can't heal the underlying issue. There is surgery for this if it gets really bad, but seems to be something they don't really like to do unless it's an extreme case. What helps me most is not eating in the evening and avoiding dairy products.  I've not done the candida diet, but take a refrigerated probiotic...a good yogurt (am going to start making my own again) and take the Caprylic Acid when I feel that I may have an overgrowth.  I also try to do a parasite cleanse at least once a year which also seems to help.  You might want to look into olive leaf extract. I used it to clear up a nasty invasion of sorts years ago and it really helped. Unfortunately I've built up an intolerance to it and can not take it anymore...but it's wonderful stuff.

      I've just started taking the 2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar a day. I'm doing it for other reasons than the gerd...but I do deal with that also...will let you know how I get along.  I've only done a couple of doses thus far intermittently over the last week and can't say that I've noticed a lot of difference yet...but plan to also make some modifications in my diet this coming week to see how it all works out.

      hi renee

      glad you're trying the ACV ...in the long term its best taken diluted in filtered water and in smaller amounts ie tsps.

      do you have acid reflux?

      the idea is to help re-build the acidity of the stomach....so that microbes, bacteria and viruses are destroyed and don't enter the bloodstream via the digestive system further along...ie through the single celled epithelium from the colon walls into the surrounding blood vessels. Where the integrity of this wall is compromised we get intestinal permeability ...and this can lead to other problems such as autoimmunity. what issues are you struggling with?

      do you have acid reflux? its just that to overcome heartburn the idea is to take as much ACV as is needed to produce a feeling of warmth in the stomach....then you reduce the dose...and keep reducing it until the body is producing its own stomach acid/HCL.  XX

      Thank you for the additional information. I have heard many good things about ACV...even from doctors. I do have some acid reflux, although it's not too bad. I have been diluting the ACV...hard for me to get by the taste...and I like sour...but it's beyond sour and then some...plan to keep doing it.  I'm also applying it externally as a rinse as I know it helps regulate the alkalinity of the skin. So will definitely give it a chance.

    Hi Maryam, I haven't quite done the candida diet but I think I am pretty much on that diet anyway as I don't eat fruit, starchy carbs, grains, sugar etc only chicken, fish, veg and eggs. I am also trying to treat a bacterial overgrowth. There are plenty of people who have reported that they have treated gerd online by changing their diet and perhaps taking some natural antibiotics so I would stay positive and go for it. What do you have to lose? I used to have ridiculous heartburn and that's now a thing of the past. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    hi maryam

    i can definitely help with this....and its so easy and positive.

    first so sorry that you resorted to anti-biotics....but hopefully you never will again (I'm still suffering the consequences of childhood antibiots!!)

    what you have is low stomach acid....one of the main reasons why candidiasis gets hold...(it seems illogical when you taste the acidic reflux) but the reflux is due to low stomach acid....not over-acidity as once thought.

    digestive enzymes really help eg betaine with pepsin and it you've had trouble sleeping they help too!! but ever so simply...just take a couple of tablespoonfuls of organic apple cyder vingar in a wine glass !! you'll feel the warmth of the acidic reaction helping the effectiveness of your stomach's physiology....so just stand and wait calmly and confidently for that to pass and then you will feel great. I only needed one dose to put things right but you can take it an hour before eating if you need to rebuild back to the normal acidity level of your stomach's pH.

    if you look up izabella wentz, on GERD She explains it all really clearly. Good Luck. Excited to hear back from you with how you get on. Its also a great starting point for working on your candidiasis and i think you have a great programme to get going with

    love from liz

      if however you have an ulcer...ie pain after eating (delayed)...then you'd need to avoid the acidity until the ulcer has healed. mucilaginous foods such as flaxseed soaked in water, chia, aloe vera, slippery elm will all help with healing the ulcer and easing the pain.

      But the most important thing is to appreciate why the ulcer appeared and it would have been due to low stomach acid and the overgrowth of hpylori causing this burrowing into your stomach wall. H Py is supposed to be there but low stomach acid allows it to overgrow.

      The body likes to work with changes of pH and the stomach prefers to receive alkaline food so there is then a contrast between operating systems as it were and to get busy removing foreign threats. This protects the digestive system further on...which is otherwise allowed to become semi-permeable and contaminants enter.
