What TO Eat

Advanced Information

It is important to not be blind to the factors other than Candida that determine one's overall diet.

These include psychological, ethnic, nutritional, fiber, cardiovascular, renal, constipative, diarrheal issues and perhaps others.

If the recommended diet and treatment create a condition that is worse than what we started with, it is time to reassess the needfulness and severity of the diet.

After all, Candida is a disease of people who possess comfortable habits, lifestyles, and attitudes about life that may not easily tolerate large degrees of change.

One only needs to look at the results from thousands upon thousands of scientific studies where patients were cured with nothing more than a placebo to realize the importance of a good positive attitude when it comes to wellness.

Let's consider your habits and attitudes about beverages. If you were to record everything you drank for several days to establish an average, what would the results look like?

As we indicated before, the average adult should be drinking a minimum of eight to ten 8 oz glasses of pure non-chlorinated water a day. And, there are several conditions where that would need to be significantly increased.

For that same average adult, water should represent 75 to 100% of all beverages consumed.

During the treatment process water is 100% of all beverages consumed. As mentioned in the Treatment Section the recommended additions to the water are: liquid chlorophyll, Herbal Fiber Cleanse, Sedona Spark, Solar Sea Salt and the three citrus Essential Oils of lemon, lime and grapefruit.

The body's largest and most important intake of any substance is air at an average of 12,000 quarts a day. Second to that is water at only two to four quarts per day. These figures should put the need into appropriate perspective.

Drink only specially filtered purified non-chlorinated water that would ideally be stored in a refrigerator yet consumed at room temperature.

Let's combine our habits and attitudes about water with the scheduling of our meals.

The following chart has been designed as a recommended model to assist in maintaining your treatment program.

Example of daily water consumption and timing.

Helpful Hints: Measure at least to a full gallon of pure non-chlorinated water into a pitcher or water bottles each morning. This will serve as a visual reminder of how much water you have actually consumed that day. Also, for variety in flavor and to further purify the water, drops of the Essential Oils lemon, lime, or grapefruit may be added.

** To aid the digestive process it is best to drink as little water as possible with meals.


How you eat your food can be as important as what you eat. It has been proven that it is best to develop eating habits that will benefit your current health condition and work with your chosen lifestyle.

Without proper digestion, the treatment of Candida cannot be completed.

Digestion begins in the mouth. By chewing your food well, it mixes in appropriate amounts of saliva and digestive enzymes which assist the process and lessens the possibility of constipation, bloating and gas.

As stress has an adverse affect on digestion, it is recommended to eat in a calm, peaceful atmosphere.

Eat enough, yet don't overdo it. It is better to let the food spoil in the garbage than to let it spoil in your stomach. Excessive food clogs the system, spoils and strengthens the Candida.

Your last meal of the day would ideally be three to four hours before sleeping. Some mild exercise can help stimulate digestion after a meal.

Avoid drinking with meals as this will dilute the digestive fluids. If necessary, limit intake to small sips to aid swallowing.

The order in which you eat your foods, often called food combining, can assist the digestive process which will in turn create an undesirable environment for the Candida.

An example: It is best not to eat carbohydrates and proteins at the same meal, as each requires a different digestive process and timeline. If eaten together, usually some will spoil, and some will continue through the intestinal tract undigested. The result being strengthened Candida.

As food combining is a complex issue and conflicting points of view exist, we recommend that you consult with a Holistic M.D., Naturopathic doctor, qualified herbalist, or holistic nutrition consultant.

Most individuals will experience some side effects to the Candida treatment process.

Be aware, Candida in an overgrowth condition may well be measured not just in ounces but in pounds.

Candida is alive and to no longer be adversely affected by it, it must, quite literally, be killed.

This process could well cause temporary indigestion, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, allergic reactions, emotional upsets, and cravings.

During an effective treatment, as the Candida die, they get hungry as we have been starving them. This normally leads to indigestion and cravings for foods that are not on the recommended list.

You have most likely heard the story of the pregnant woman who was craving pickles and ice cream. The craving does not mean that her body really needs that combination or that they would taste good together.

When you have cravings we suggest that you drink 8 - 12 ounces of pure non-chlorinated water with to 1 tsp. of well- dissolved solar sea salt and a snack of carrots, celery, or something that is on the recommended list.

As we move into the Stage Three portion of the treatment and begin to reintroduce foods that were not recommended in Stage One and Two keep the following information well in mind.

The most common allergenic foods should be the last you attempt to reintroduce into your diet.

A partial listing is: wheat, oats, barley, and rye (all of which contain gluten), caffeine (as in coffee, colas chocolates etc.), dairy products, strawberries, corn, potatoes, soy, mushrooms, peanuts, yeast, shell fish, red meats, sugar, excessive sweets, sweet fruits, and of course, aspartame, MSG, sulfites, artificial colors and flavors along with junk food of all kinds.
