As the human machine our intestines were made for mainly fruits and vegetables raw at least 80 percent. Yes , FRUITS, please don't listen to those who tell you that the candida diet does not allow for fruit I was told that too! And that is mainly all I eat. In fact our brains and our bodies need simple sugars to run properly. We need fruit.Now, for me just before I was about to have a huge chunk of intestinal candida come off , It seemed to get worse, so it will flare up as a last ditch effort to stay alive just before it comes out. When we do not eat properly , our bodies don't work properly , we don't filter out trash properly because we are all clogged up. I could go on for awhile , but if you want to find the TRUE solution youtube channel for Dr. Morse, he is a detoxification specialist. (He does talk about some spiritualiy but if you just ignore that part and listen to the detox part of it, this guy knows what the heck he is talking about) I have run into a few people similar to him but none as descriptive and cheap his herbs are very good and potent. And it basically entails eating fruits ,berries and melons until your body is right. Yes it works, have benefited immensely from it myself, feel good and alive like never before eating this way. I only wish to help all you suffering people ,I feel so horrible for you . I was there not to long ago.
