Foods to Eat During a Candida Cleanse

Q. What foods can you eat while doing a candida cleanse?

A: Candida is an umbrella term used to describe an overgrowth in the intestines of about 60 fungus-type organisms. These organisms develop a root system that give off toxic by-products that destroy the gut lining enabling the fungi to progress throughout the body. Candida feed off sugars, starches and yeast. Starve candida by avoiding sugars, starches (breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, beans, baked goods), yeast (e.g., bread, baked goods), mold (e.g., cheese, leftovers), fungi (e.g., mushrooms), fermented foods (e.g., pickles, vinegars - incl. ketchup, mustard, salad dressings?), supplements containing sugar and/or yeast, dairy products, and limit fruit consumption to 2/day. Safe foods include all vegetables (mainly raw), avocado, eggs (if well tolerated), fish, flax oil, olive oil, fresh vegetable juices, ghee, honey, poultry (organic), raw & fresh nuts & seeds, red meat (organic) and some tofu. Be sure to chew food carefully, and drink freshly-pressed vegetable juice whenever possible.
