General Diet Strategies

 Avoid overeating and chew all food thoroughly.

 Avoid eating undercooked meats and raw nuts (especially walnuts).

 Drink a lot of water. It’s recommended that you drink ½ your body weight in
ounces. So if you weigh 160 lbs, drink 80 oz of water daily. This promotes good
bowel elimination.

 Balance pH levels through eating alkaline forming foods and taking 1 tsp of apple
cider vinegar before meals.

 Eat a lot of cultured vegetables and non-dairy kefir (see me for more info on

 Use only extra-virgin olive oil when cooking.

 Minimum vitamins: Vitamin C (250 to 500 mg two times a day) and zinc (20 to 30
mg per day) to support the immune system.

 Follow an anti-candida diet (see next pages)

Foods to Embrace

 Raw beet, cabbage, carrot, garlic, leek, onion, radish, and sorrel. These have a
stronger anti-parasitic action when eaten raw. Also eat green vegetables. Parsnips
and rutabaga are permitted. Fresh vegetable broth with no preservatives is

~ Vegetables should comprise 40% of your diet.

 Quinoa, millet, roasted buckwheat groats (kasha), rye, oats, barley, amaranth
are allowed grains. Cereals such as cracked rye or barley should be freshly milled
just before cooking to avoid rancidity.

~ Grains and sprouts should comprise about 40% of your diet, with at least half
being sprouted.

 Sprouts of barley, rice and millet are rich in enzymes and help assimilation and
move stagnation. Along with rye, quinoa, and oat sprouts, these are wonderful anti-
candida, anti-parasitic agents.

~ Grains and sprouts should comprise about 40% of your diet, with at least half
being sprouted.

 Aduki beans, mung beans, aduki bean sprouts, mung bean sprouts, soy bean
sprouts are especially recommended foods. Beans are best digested if sprouted and
eaten with green or low-starch vegetables. You can also use other beans, peas, and

~ Sprouted and unsprouted legumes can comprise 10% of your diet.

 Animal protein is allowed, but should be minimal. Eat fish, poultry, or lamb.

~ Animal protein can comprise 10% of your diet.

 Use these spices in moderate amounts (parasites and candida hate them): fennel,
tumeric, clove, cayenne, garden sage, ginger, horseradish, thyme, cinnamon,
nutmeg, cardamom

 Eat raw garlic any way that you can. Also eat pumpkin seeds, beets, and
carrots. All of these have anti-worm properties.

 Only use stevia to sweeten your food. I recommend the tincture.

 Drink at least 2 cups of Pau D’Arco tea daily (use the bark, not the powder).
You can also use peppermint, chapparel or burdock tea in addition to the Pau
d’Arco. Herbal teas with no caffeine, preservatives, fruit juices, or artificial
sweeteners are OK, too. You can buy great quality Pau d’Arco tea for $5/lb at
