I've on a fairly strict candida diet. I have IBS-C Which means they I need fiber but I cramp and bloat when I eat it. What I learned on IBS boards is to eat soluble fiber first to "coat" the stomach then eat the veggies. Well I can't do that with a Candida diet. Anyone done this? THE FIBER/BENTONITE SHAKE A popular drink among cleansers is the fiber and bentonite shake. This is a detox drink designed to remove toxins from your gut. The fiber supplement gets your digestive system moving and scrapes clean the walls of your gut, while the super-absorbent bentonite clay sucks up any toxins sitting in your intestines and carries them safely out of your body. For the fiber supplement, there are several different options. Psyllium husk is very effective, but can be quite harsh on the intestines for those who suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome. Other good alternatives are Acacia Powder and Pure Apple Fiber. I especially like Fiber-3 by NOW Foods – it contains soluble fiber from Golden Flax Meal and Acacia, plus Inulin as a prebiotic. Regular Bentonite clay doesn’t mix well with water so buy it in liquid form, like Great Plains Bentonite. This will make the detox drink a lot easier to get down. Add it to your fiber supplement and shake up the mixture for a few seconds, then quickly drink it before it settles. Drink another extra large glass of water immediately after. Both these ingredients are great for detox. The Bentonite clay soaks up toxins, and the fiber pushes waste matter out through your colon. RECIPE: FIBER/BENTONITE SHAKE 1 large cup water 1 flat Tbsp. fiber supplement 1 flat Tbsp. liquid Bentonite Clay This detox drink should be taken on an empty stomach, so don’t eat anything for an hour before and after you drink it. The easiest times are usually first thing in the morning, in the afternoon, and a couple of hours before bedtime. You can drink it 2-3 times each day.
