• Breads, cakes, white pasta, white rice, white potatoes
: Breads are leavened with yeast, yeast breeds more yeast, cakes contain
sugar, sugar feeds yeast, white pasta, rice and potatoes are high in sugar content and again feed the yeast. All of these are best tobe avoided completely for the first 2 weeks and gradually reintroduced one at a time, to ensure that no yeast overgrowth is reoccurring.
• Fruit Juices
: Either canned, bottled, or frozen. Exception: Freshly prepared juice, after avoiding juice for at least 2 full weeks.
• Coffee & Tea
: Regular coffee, instant coffee, decaffeinated coffee, and teas of all sorts, including herb tea. Exception: Traditional
: Watermelon, honeydew melon, and especially cantaloupe.
• Edible Fungi
: All types of mushrooms, morels, and truffles.
: All types including cottage cheese and cream cheese. Prepared foods, Velveeta, macaroni and cheese, any other cheeses
containing snacks. NO buttermilk, sour cream, any other sour milk products.
: Brewer’s yeast, baker’s yeast, vitamins, minerals, unless labeled “yeast free” and “sugar free”.
: Specifically penicillin, streptomycin, ampicillin, amoxicillin, keflix, ceclor, septra, and bactrim.
• Processed Foods
: Packaged and processed foods containing yeast and refined sugar. Also avoid enriched flour products.
: Peanuts and pistachios usually contain mold, which in turn will feed yeast.
: All sugar containing foods and sweeteners. Read labels carefully for hidden sugars.
: Fermented liquors and liqueurs, and beverages such as cider and root beer.
• Malt Products Milk
drinks, cereals, and candy.
• Condiments, Sauces, and Vinegar-Containing Foods
: Mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire, Accent (monosodium glutamate),
steak, barbecue, chili, shrimp and soy sauces, pickles, pickled vegetables, relishes, green olives, sauerkraut, horseradish, mincemeat, and tamari. Also avoid sprouts. Vinegar of all kinds and vinegar containing foods such as mayonnaise, and salad dressing.
(Freshly squeezed lemon juice may be used as a substitute for vinegar in salad dressings prepared with unprocessed vegetable oil.)
• Processed & Smoked Meats
: Pickled and smoked meats, fish including sausages, hot dogs, corned beef, pastrami, and pickled tongue.
• Dried & Candied Fruits
: Raisins, apricots, dates, prunes, figs, and pineapple.
: Molds grow in left-over food unless it’s properly refrigerated. Freezing is better.
What Is Candida Albicans?
Candida Albicans is a yeast growth present in all of us and is normally controlled by bacteria in the intestines. But when something
destroys helpful bacteria, the yeast begins to invade and colonize the body tissues. These yeast colonies release powerful
chemicals into the bloodstream, causing such varying symptoms as lethargy, chronic diarrhea, yeast vaginitis, bladder infections,
muscle and joint pain, menstrual problems, constipation and severe depression. The medical term for this yeast overgrowth is
candidiasis (can di di’ a sis).
Candida overgrowth is not a new problem, but is usually thought of as a minor infection of the mucous membranes, skin and
nails. But the increased and sometimes excessive use of antibiotics, birth control pills and steriods will allow candidiasis to
become a chronic, systemic infection that causes tissue damage throughout the body. Chemicals produced by the candida
attack the immune system and if the immune system weakens, the candida will spread out into various body tissues and
Causes of Candida
What causes this normally harmless yeast to grow out of control? Several factors can lead to an overgrowth of candida. One is
the use of antibiotics for extended periods. Broad spectrum antibiotics taken for respiratory, urinary or ear infections are especially
harmful because they destroy the Candida-controlling bacteria, as well as disease-causing bacteria. Steroids such as Cortisone
(Decadron or other cortisone-type drugs) suppress the immune system’s ability to fight Candida growth. Any hormone imbalance
caused by birth control pills or frequent pregnancies also favor Candida overgrowth. There are usually parasites as well somewhere
in the body when there is high Candida. Another cause of Candida overgrowth can be from a low Acidophilus and Bifidus
culture in the colon. It is imperative that there is enough of these two friendly bacterias in the system in order to control Candida
overgrowth. Without these friendly bacteria Candida can and probably will become out of control.
Symptoms of Candida
Both men and women can have candidiasis. However it does occur more frequently in women (especially young women) with
more severe effects. Candida symptoms fall into the following four main areas:
Gastrointestinal and Genitourinary Symptoms
These include constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, PMS, recurrent yeast vaginitis, vaginal burning and
itching, vaginal discharge, loss of sexual feelings and prostitis.
(These symptoms occur with the passing of toxins into the bloodstream.) These symptoms include hayfever, earaches, bronchitis
(recurrent), hives, headaches, sore throats, coughing, acne, nasal congestion, chemical sensitivities to tobacco smoke, perfume
and foods. The person just feels “sick all over”.
Disfunctioning Glandular and Organ Symptoms
These include infertility, menstrual problems, ovarian failure and ACTH deficiency, hypothyroidism, chronic lymphocystic thyroiditis,
diabetes mellitus, impotence and endometriosis.
Emotional and Mental Symptoms
These occur because of central nervous system involvement. These include poor memory, fatigue, drowsiness, feelings of
unreality, incoordination, tingling and numbness, joint pain, muscle weakness, muscle pain, irritability, inability to concentrate,
confusion and severe depression.
Diagnosis of Candida
Candida Albicans is present everywhere, subsisting on the surface of all living things. Since candida germs live in every person’s
body, especially on the mucous membranes, vaginal and other smears and cultures for the presence of candida are useless.
Therefore the diagnosis for candidiasis is made from a person’s medical history, score on a candida questionaire or their response
to a kinesiology/muscle test for candidiasis. Finally the diagnosis is confirmed by the person’s response to treatment for candida
An overgrowth of Candida Albicans is a chronic, dangerous infection. If left unchecked it will continue to spread and break
down the body’s ability to fight off disease. Everyone including infants and children are susceptible to candidiasis. The goal
when treating a candida infection is to remove yeast from the infected tissue and rebuild the immune system.
