All fungi require an organic carbon source because they are not capable of building their own carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water. The most important and most easily accessible source for organic carbon are all simple sugars, such as glucose, fructose, cane and beet sugar, maltose, any kind of sweets, batter pudding desserts, honey, sweet beverages, sweet fruit, marmalades, alcohol, etc.
The abundant supply of roughage - whereby, for instance, vegetables and salads can also be supplied in ground form - helps to purge yeast nests in the small intestine and colon. This effect of plant fibers is especially efficient if the supply is effected several times per day.
In addition to proper nutrition, paying attention to fundamental hygienic measures is also considered as essential. All efforts to keep the intestine free of fungi are in vain if decayed teeth dental tartar, gingival pockets and dentures exist as a fungal reservoir in the oral cavity.
Here are a few recommended measures for hygiene:
- Brush your teeth after every meal.
- Exchange the toothbrush on the 1st and 3rd day of the therapy, and "pickle" in vinegar or a grapefruit seed extract solution (GSE) afterwards.
- Add about 20 drops of GSE into the final rinsing water of the washing machine.
- Add 50 drops of GSE to a bucket of mopping water.
- Add 15 drops of GSE to a spray water bottle: This also enables the effective substance to be sprayed.
A few more dietary recommendations:
The duration of the dietary measures depends on the severity of the fungal colonization. Normally the stringent fasting cure has to be maintained for at least four to five weeks.
After that you should moderate, low-sugar food for a few more weeks.
