(NaturalNews) Always tired, depressed and getting sick, Amanda Brocket's battle with systemic candidiasis was getting the best of her. Being mentally and physically drained from constantly struggling with intense sugar cravings compounded the situation (1). Even doctors were unable to help her overcome her systemic candidiasis, a yeast infection known to be deadly in up to 45 percent of people with the condition. At its worst, systemic candidiasis can travel throughout the body, attacking the brain, heart and lungs (2).

The healing power of raw foods

However, Brocket attended a health retreat and started detoxing with juices. The results were amazing.

Ever since she discovered raw foods at the retreat, she's maintained the dietary lifestyle and is now free of the crippling pain she experienced with systemic candidiasis. In fact, she says she was symptom free two months after going raw and believes in the power of raw foods to heal the body.

As a testimony to her success and enjoyment of healthy, whole foods, she created The Raw Food Kitchen blog, where she provides raw food information and blogs about her journey, which includes sharing recipes. For example, some of her recipes include the decadent-sounding pumpkin and chestnut soup as well as banana crepes with cashew cream. (3)

What to eat on a raw food diet

One question she often gets involves what a raw foodist eats. She says, "We eat a lot of super foods, a lot of fermented foods and sea vegetables," adding that it's "not about deprivation. It's about getting as many nutrients into your day as possible."

Foods such as coconut oil, nuts, organic fruit and avocado are common choices for Brocket. However, she suggests that anyone interested in starting a raw food diet take it easy initially. Like anyone trying a new diet that's drastically different from their usual one, staying with the change in eating habits can be challenging, if not downright discouraging. To prevent this, she says to start slowly such as gradually adding a vegetable to a breakfast and increasing the amount of raw foods as the days go on.

"As long as you're combining raw with your normal diet, you'll get results," she said.

On her website, she wrote, "Warning: Going raw may cause unleashing the shackles of food and body issues and cause energy, vitality health and wellness side effects!"

Fortunately, that's a far cry from the debilitating pain and lethargy she experienced when she suffered from systemic candidiasis.
