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.
Raw Unfiltered Honey
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
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

Foods to Avoid
Avoid 4 kinds of foods:
NO Refined Sugar:
NO Simple/ Complex Carbohydrates:
Cane sugar, beet sugar, date sugar, corn syrup, maple syrup, pasturized honey, molasses, and dextrose.
Canned, bottled, boxed and other packaged and processed foods often contain refined sugar products. Grains, breads and pastas are from grains no exceptions.
No condiments containing vinegar. These include ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, picante sauce, salad dressing, barbecue sauce, soy sauce, sauerkraut, pickles, and olives. Etc.
No malted products such as malted milk drinks, candies and some cereals.
No pickled and cured meats and fish including sausages, hot dogs, corned beef, pastrami and pickled herring and all lunch meat. No MSG found in processed food.
Milk and Milk Products (mucous forming):
No fermented products (for 6 months straight) *use probiotics instead during the detox period
No "Grain-Based/Sugar containing" Milk substitutes
Cheeses (mucous forming and fungis/mold forming)
Fruit: Limit fresh Fruit (DURING ENTIRE 6 MONTHS OF DETOX) except avocado, berries and GREEN apple, or mangoes. No canned fruit, no dried frozen fruit and fruit juices, fruit candies, fruit flavorings
No yeast leavened breads and rolls, donuts, pizza dough, sour dough products, and no crackers and no cereals. No beer or alcohol containing any yeast.
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.
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.
