I understand that, and in fact, most people have this fear while they’re on the diet. If it helps, eggs, kefir, and Greek yogurt were my only sources of protein for many months while on the treatment, and I suffered no negative problems because of this. My nails continued to grow as they normally had, and as soon as the infestation begin to subside, my hair growth and thickness begin to change in a huge way. These were all clues that I was not suffering from a protein deficiency.
Let me see if I can explain why I believe you would benefit by eliminating even half of your meals that contain chicken protein.
The digestive tract is the focal point for most illnesses; these include Candida infestations as well as psoriasis. Poor digestion almost always includes incomplete protein digestion, and this is especially true with a Candida overgrowth. When this is happening every day it leads to the creation of even more toxins added to the ones which the Candida create. In addition to ammonia, the new toxins that are added to your body are polyamines which are known to contribute to excessive skin proliferation. Along with the overgrowth of these microbes is often an imbalance or a deficiency of the friendly flora or bacteria in the intestines, which normally help the liver to detoxify the body, and as we all know, the liver function is of crucial importance since it’s the body’s main filtering system for toxins.
What I’m saying is, the animal protein is not helping either your psoriasis or your Candida overgrowth and making both more difficult to cure both.
