Fungus Producing Foods to Avoid
[foods that cause Candida Albicans]

- Bottled, frozen and canned vegetables, fruits and juices
- Dried fruits except calimyrna figs
- Most milk products including cheese and sugared fruit sweetened yogurt
- All condiments; catsup, mustard, sauces, pastes
- Sprouts (flourless breads made with sprouts are OK to eat but must be stored in the freezer at all times or they will get very moldy very quickly. Just thaw out what you need)

Foods That Do Not Produce Fungus
[Eat these according to your metabolic and blood type and if you arenít allergic or donít have a food intolerance]
- Fresh vegetables devoid of any spots of mold and fresh vegetable juices (mold spots will grow roots through an entire piece of produce)
- Fresh fruits devoid of any spots of mold and fresh fruit juices (bottled juices are typically made from moldy produce). It's best to eat fruit in moderation and to stay away from fruits that mold easily like grapes and berries.
- Fish and organic chicken
- Eggs ó Eat only brown organic fertile eggs. Even if you are typically allergic to eggs, you will most likely not be allergic to these eggs. Eat no more than two or three per week.
Lactic acid fermented foods include yogurt, kefir (without sugar laden fruit). The yogurt or kefir must be plain with live bifidus and acidophilus cultures. It is best to make your own. The FDA requires that all yogurts, including organic yogurt, sold in the U.S. contain streptococcus thermophilus. This is a pathogenic bacteria, meaning it can cause disease and many immune disorders. I have contacted some yogurt manufacturers and they have verified that it is an FDA requirement although they do not give me a specific reason for it.
Other lactic acid based fermented foods that will not make fungas grow in the blood include:
- Sour cream
And grains, including:
- Brown rice
Note: Most grains need refrigeration because otherwise their oils will go rancid. If you get grains from the health food store and they are sitting on a shelf and not refrigerated do not buy them.
Other Items Include:
Note: Nuts must be refrigerated when you purchase them (eat according to metabolic type and then blood type). Remember that nuts are hard on the liver to digest.
- Pau D'Arco tea (has been known to help eradicate Candida)†
- Black walnut leaf tea kills parasites and fungus
- Calimyrna figs (dried) are okay ó without† sulfur dioxide preservative
- Stevia, a natural herbal sweetener. 1 tsp. = 1 cup of sugar in sweetness
- Syrups like black strap molasses and maple syrup that are unsulfured and uncooked. These syrups break down like a slow burning complex carbohydrate. Use in moderation.
