Food Allergies and the Elimination Diet

Many symptoms are caused by food allergies. Foods high on the allergy list are: white flour, sugar, wheat, corn, soy, chocolate, soy, citrus, eggs and pork.

The elimination diet is the best way to find if you are allergic to one or more of theses foods.
The way to perform this diet is eliminate all of the above foods for one week. The foods are returned to your diet, one food per day, and reactions are noted.

Problems with sugar-laden foods

Sugar- laden foods cause many problems. First, they contribute to the overgrowth of Candida in the intestinal tract. In addition, if you fill up on these foods, you most likely won’t consume enough essential nutrients. Your diet may be deficient calcium and magnesium, zinc, chromium, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamin B1, Vitamin B6 and other nutrients.

Fruits and Candida

In the early stages of candidiasis (the first 2-3 months) I recommend avoiding fruits. Here’s why:
Fruits are loaded with fructose; in spite of their fiber content, fruits are easily converted to fructose and other simple sugars in the intestinal tract, thereby encouraging the growth of candida.

During the first 2-3 months the only fruits I recommend are: avocadoes, lemons limes, tomatoes and coconuts
