get some water kefir grains & ferment it. The grains eat the glucose, but it still taste ok, you can always use stevia to sweeten it againJune 21, 2012 at 7:51 am #85085

How long do you let Kefir sit? A friend told me to let it sit overnight with kefir grains in it and she said to let it sit out on the counter(not refrigerate it) That brings me to a question however, and its probably a stupid one haha –so fermenting and molding are not the same thing(?) I am assuming. The mold is what we are staying away from, from what I am learning.
Which brings me to my next point–I am trying to rid my house of any fungus, molds, etc.as well as my body Does anyone have experience with this?
OK one more question -promise this is the last one–my daughter, who just turned 11 is on the diet with me (she has many of the symptoms but of course the pediatrician never thinks this diet is safe) But as of now, I have had it with her eczema, allergies asthma and difficulty swallowing so as of today, it will be her first full day on the diet….Somebody tell me Im not a bad mom 🙂 Anyway, She just asked me if Soy Milk was OK to drink. I am trying to inform her of good health habits and in my opinion, I believe this diet to be a VERY healthy diet. Rest assured, in no way, am I trying to get her to lose weight or anything–she is beautiful!!!
Thanks everyone for this great forum–so so so helpful–I hope everyone has a great and healthy day! 🙂June 21, 2012 at 8:41 am #85090

Raw coconut water contains too much sugar per serving for the diet and isn’t recommended until you are much much further along in your treatment. It can feed candida and set back your treatment. This diet is all about reducing your sugar.
Kefir doesn’t mold but it ferments which is a completely different process.
Soy is not allowed on the diet because it feeds candida is likely genetically modified by monsanto. Organic foods is the way to go in my opinion.
I used to have a very bad mold problem in my old apartment and it is why I am here; it caused severe symptoms for me such as seizures in my sleep, anxiety, hair loss, and the list goes on and on. Basically I got very ill very quickly from the mold.
What did I do to improve my environment? I moved to a house that contains mold but at lesser levels. There are some basic things you can do to reduce mold in your home, and I have a variety of tips.
-Consider purchasing an air purifier for the home that removes particles from the air. You could potentially get one for every room in the house. This of course will cause a higher electricity bill. I personally just use one in my sleep in my room.
-A dehumidifier will remove moisture in the air but are not very cheap. You also potentially have to remove the water from it daily.
-You can purchase “high grit” hepa furnace/AC filters that capture 98% of the particles in the air or more. This of course is only effective when these devices are on.
-Kill visible mold with vinegar and antifungals (oregano oil, grapefruit seed extract, etc). This will cause the mold to become airborn so be sure to ventilate the area adequately. You can also kill visible mold with UV (light).
-Get your carpets steam cleaned and wash curtains (not cheap). Wash or paint all of the walls/ceilings.
-Detox your clothing from molds and toxins expelled from your body. This involves soaking the clothes in hot water and vinegar for 2 hours and then washing in washing machine. I have a post on the forum about this.
Hope this helps!

I don’t drink coconut water because basically its sugar water, just as any juice – orrange, apple, pneapple etc. But sometimes I use coconut water as a sweetener in a recipe or I drink it after working out. Here’s the link to organic coconut water that I like, or here is another one which is also quite good but expensive.
