2: DIETARY SUPPRESSION OF CANDIDA ALBICANS
NOTE: To Prevent Tissue Wasting - It is important to to eat protein
once per hour to be converted in liver on a consistent basis to
supply "body owned" (not yeast owned) blood sugar. Can
be balanced with non-starchy vegetables.
A. The yeast grows on sugar and starch and is fed by gluten-containing
grains. Gluten grains include wheat, oats, rye and barley.
- Do not eat
sugar or sweets. This includes products made with honey or molasses,
as well as sugar.
- Do not eat
wheat, oats, rye or barley, corn, rice, potatoes, buckwheat and
millet. Exclude all of these starchy foods from the diet.
- Milk (even
raw) encourages Candida growth. Avoid milk products except butter.
B. Yeast, molds
and fungi cross-react. When taken in food or even breathed in high
concentrations, they trigger symptoms and diminish the body's resistance
to Candida. Bathrooms and air vents should be kept clean and dry.
Yeast, mold and fungus should be minimized in foods.
DO NOT EAT
- Yeast used
in food preparation and flavoring:
breads, rolls, coffee cakes, pastries, etc.
- Beer, wine,
and all alcoholic beverages, and all soft drinks -- cola or
commercial soups, potato chips
and vinegar-containing foods, such as pickled vegetables, sauerkraut,
relishes, and salad dressing. Lemon joice with oil may be used
as a salad dressing
- Cider and
naural root beer
- Yeast is
the basis for many vitamin and mineral preparations. Tryptophan
is often derived from yeast.
- Molds build
up on foods and sugar. The following needs to be avoided:
and dried fruits such as prunes, raisins, dates, figs, citrus
peels, candied cherries, currants, peaches, apples, and apricots.
- All dairy
products including cheeses, cottage cheese, sour cream, buttermilk,
honey, and maple syrup are sugars which accumulate mold and
should not be eaten.
- Melons (especially
cantaloupe) and the skins of fleshy fruits accumulate mold during
- Avoid fresh,
canned (bottled) or frozen citrus, grape or other fruit juice.
are fungi. Do not eat them.
C. Eating fruit
will boost blood sugar levels and encourage yeast growth. Fruits
and fruit juices must be temporarily omitted for 3 months from the
WHAT IS LEFT
Fish, chicken, turkey, duck, seafood, eggs, pheasant, quail, lamb,
veal. In other words, animals if the meat is fresh instead of
dried, smoked, pickled or cured.
All vegetables are potentially acceptable. Only starchy ones such
as potatoes and sweet potatoes must be avoided.

sweetened with stevia, licorice root, vegetable juices (no carrot
or beet), sparkling water and mineral water.
IS IT POSSIBLE
TO EAT OUT?
Yes! Just order
carefully. Skip the cocktail. Have oil and lemon joice on your salad.
Order meat, chicken, or other animal protein that is prepared without
sauces which might contain sugar, mushrooms, wheat as a thickener,
and other harmful ingredients. Broiled or plain items are obviously
the safest choice. Lightly steamed vegetables are perfect! Skip
bread, crackers, and dessert.
