Foods to Eat

GENERAL GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW:  Always buy Organic, grass fed, pastured eggs/chicken, Non GMO, No preservatives, No colors added, No sugar added, No Carageenan, No Soy, No Corn, No Gluten etc., No Iodized Salt. 

Mold-Safe Sweeteners

Raw Unfiltered Honey 
BUY HERE

(Studies: (1), (2)
RAW honey that is straight from the beehive is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and therefore DOES NOT feed mold, fungus or candida in the human body.  It is also SCD compliant and ok for people with SIBO as well. 

 

Monk Fruit 
BUY HERE
anti-inflammatory, anti-histaminic, low glycemic, high antioxidants (fight free radicals like mold), helps liver function, anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-cancerous, has some minor binding properties. Heals the gut.

Beverages

Filtered water
I highly recommend Berkey Water Filtration systems.  Make sure you also get the chlorine and flouride filters as well. 
BUY ONE HERE

 

 

Spring Water (preferably straight from the stream using glass containers not plastic) Do you have a natural spring near you?  If not you can: Find a spring close to you HERE
 

 

Hemp Milk 
Pacific brand "Original flavor" has no sugar, no preservatives and no carrageenan.   You can use this in place of milk for any dish or baking project.  
BUY IT HERE

 

 

Unsweetened Almond Milk with (No carageenan or sugar) Vanilla is ok.  Seems that only Silk or Almond Breeze meet these criteria.  You can check other brands but most of them contain caraeenan and extra sugar which you need to avoid.   BUY IT HERE
 

 

 

Coconut Milk - Be careful buying coconut milk that contains guar gum or carrageenan.  Both of these ingredients can wreak havoc on your gut lining.  Also, avoid coconut milk if you are "HISTAMINE INTOLERANT".  The two brands I have found that are good are: Native Forest and Natural Value.  Both of these can be found on Amazon.  Buy Native Forest HERE and you can buy Natural Value HERE
 


Coconut Water  - The best brand is Monkito.  Best brand for the Best price.  You can buy Monkito Coconut Water HERE.  Organic/Only buy the most natural and sustainable brands that are not overly processed with heat or contain dangerous chemicals that destroy your gut like guar gums or carrageenan.  Not all coconut water is healthy for you.  Some can actually be harmful.  Here is a great guide for buying your Coconut Water.  Avoid the brands Zico, Vita Coco and Naked.

    MANY soups for a month and freeze..then warm
    up to eat quickly.

HERBS: Try to grow your own herbs in pots (Indoors/Organic/heirloom seeds)
Buying herbs and spices from a store or that are not immediately harvested can possibly carry hidden mold toxins.  Most of the organic Basil I bought from the grocery store usually started to mold a day after I bought it so I wasted a lot of money this way when I could have just grown it myself at home.

(No hidden sugar foods):

Canned, bottled, boxed and other packaged and processed foods often contain refined sugar products.  Grains, breads and pastas are from grains no exceptions. 

CERTAIN NUTS
Avoid Cashews, Pistachios, Hazelnuts, Peanuts, These nuts have a higher concentration of molds and mycotoxin because of the way they are stored and harvested.  ONLY eat nuts from the approved list. 

NO Chocolate/Cocoa
No Chocolate or Cocoa of any kind during strict detox.  Cocoa beans and chocolate are known to produce Ochratoxin A Mycotoxins during storage.  This is considered a "toxic moldy food".  Read Scientific Data HERE

Beverages: 
NO beverages except some herbal teas, unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, SPRING or PURIFIED or FILTERED water, No alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer, whiskey, gin, vodka, etc.  Also avoid cider, root beer, chocolate, coffees and MOST teas (there are exceptions in the tea category.  Research teas that are antifungal or are detoxifying as those will probably be safe and not carry a risk of mold or mycotoxin contamination.)  Coffees have mycotoxins and mostTeas also have high levels of mold and mycotoxins.  Only drink the approved teas on the list. 

No Vinegars
Contrarty to what is being promoted as a "health product", vinegars are not good to ingest in people that have been exposed to toxic molds.  In general these products can offer health benefits but ONLY to people who were not otherwise exposed to toxic fungi.  See, vinegars are made from moldy grains.  *It is ok to clean with vinegar but try not to ingest vinegar during the 3-month strict detox.

No Corn
No Oats
No Wheat
No Rice READ MORE
No Amaranth READ MORE
No Barley READ MORE

Edible Fungi
No mushrooms, morels or truffles of any kind.  Toxic molds compete with ALL other species of the mold kingdom and will wreak havoc on your system because they are competing for survival.  Wait until after detox before attempting to eat mushrooms of any kind.  You might be unpleasantly surprised when you feel sick after eating them or worse, have a bad reaction. 



Starchy Vegetables

Take special precaution with vegatables/foods that tend to have excess mold or high in starch.  No potatoes, sweet potatoes, no peas, no beets etc. should not be eaten during "3 month strict detox" period.  After 3 months only incorporate small amounts of beets and sweet potatoes back into the diet to aid the liver and spleen in detoxification.  Potatoes should be avoided for at least a year or two after a mold exposure. 

 

NO Beans or Legumes

- Beans and legumes can carry aflatoxins in small traces, however their carb content is high..remember mold feeds off of sugars of any kind. Beans are also high in lectins and can wreak havoc on an "already-compromised" gut lining. 

 

Seafood

NO SHELLFISH OR BOTTOM FEEDERS - This seafood feeds off of the waste products that fall to the bottom of the ocean and have an over abundance of bacteria and fungus.  Stick with fresh water fish like salmon and tuna. 

 

Pork
Pork has nitrates, high sodium, parasites, bacteria and tests positive for toxic mold strains like aspergillus.
