He also suggests eating complex forms of sugar because they benefit the central nervous system & aren’t readily available to the yeast (raw honey, molasses & fruits such as dates, figs & raisins.) Also, he suggests increasing your daily intake of mineralized salts because it’s fungi static & slows the life processes of the yeast.
This doctor has no idea what he is talking about. Try eating a diet of fruit, raisins, and raw honey and let me know if things get better or worse. And also, there is no way to “starve” the yeast by diet alone. You need the diet to weaken candida while the anti-fungals and probiotics do their job.
