"Candida diet" after a saliva test?

Brent A. Bauer, M.D.:

"There are no clinical trials that document the efficacy of a candida cleanse diet for treating any recognized medical condition."

The saliva water test for candida has no scientific foundation. 

Stay sceptical even if it is recommended by a doctor (Oz) on TV :)

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Enterotypes and Microflora

An enterotype is a classification of living organisms based on its bacteriological ecosystem in the gut microbiome. Humans can be roughly divided into three enterotypes depending on which genus of bacteria dominates their gut: Bacteroides, Ruminococcus, or Prevotella. 

  • People who eat a lot of meat and saturated fat tended to have more Bacteroides in their flora
  • Ruminococcus prevailed in people who consumed lots of alcohol and polyunsaturated fats. 
  • Prevotella favored a diet rich in carbohydrates.

Long-term diet is strongly associated with the gut microbiome composition. If switching gut enterotype is possible, it may take a long-term dietary intervention. 

Chimpanzees have enterotypes that are compositionally analogous to those found in humans.
