Fungus Diet

Fungus Diet

Fungus lives naturally in the colon, digestive tract and externally. Though there are a number of types of fungus, the most prevalent one is candida albicans. At times, candida albicans can over-proliferate in the body because of an overuse of antibiotics, corticosteroids, poor diet or stress. Consequently, someone can get adverse symptoms such as migraines, gastritis, joint pain and even autoimmune diseases such as fibromyalgia. A fungus diet is recommended to alleviate the condition before a person gets sicker.

Foods Not To Eat On A Fungus Diet

    When someone has a severe candida overgrowth they should eliminate gluten and sugar from their diet. Candida albicans feeds on sugar and gluten. Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat. Most commercial products such as bread, pasta, cereal, cookies, snack foods and milk contain gluten. Removing gluten from your diet will require you to eat substitute foods instead of your favorite bread or pasta. There are brown rice substitutes for most of these products. There are also breads and crackers that are made of almonds, hazelnut and pecans. Adhering to a gluten-free diet will eliminate most sugar from your diet. You should also limit your fruit to one or two a day because of their sugar content.

Foods To Eat

    Chicken, beef, turkey, fish, pork, legumes, beans, brown rice, potatoes, yams, vegetables and fruits do not contain gluten. Neither do certain grains such as millet, amaranth, quinoa, kamut, basmati rice, buckwheat and besan. You can usually add oatmeal and corn products after the first week although they do have traces of gluten and sugar. Eat plenty of fresh vegetables because they contain digestive enzymes that can kill the excess fungus. They also contain many vitamins and minerals. You might consider juicing with vegetables to improve assimilation. People with fungus problems typically have fecal impaction that blocks certain nutrients from entering the bloodstream. Juicing will help you bypass the digestive process entirely. Common vegetables used in juicing are carrots, cucumbers, kale, spinach, onions radishes, parsley and cabbage. Fruits are also high in nutrients. They are also natural laxatives which can alleviate any constipation problems from candida overgrowth. Pineapples, kiwi, strawberries, bananas, melons and mangoes are some fruits you can use to juice. Stick with one or two them a day. You could also add a fruit to your vegetable drink for flavoring.

Other Foods, Herbs & Spices To Eat Or Drink

    Sugar-free yogurt is another good food for a fungus diet. Yogurt contains cultures or probiotics which can replenish the natural bacteria in your colon and digestive tract. Other foods that can kill fungus are garlic, virgin coconut oil, ginger, senna, Paul d'Arco tea, oregano, tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract. You can use oregano on external fungus infections like the toes.
