I have yet to meet a patient who has got on top of their Candida by eating large amounts of fresh fruit.
Some people believe that eating a lot of fresh fruit is good for detoxifying the lymph system. Others have the unfounded belief that if they detox, detox, and detox, they’ll eventually get healthy. The truth is that you don’t have to keep on cleansing and detoxing to get healthy.
Generally, if you want to transition from a modern western diet and cleanse your body, you
need to go through a significant cleanse. As a first step, you should get read of all the junk, processed food in your pantry. You will want to focus on eating real food, not food from cans and plastic bags.
From here, work towards cutting out alcohol and caffeine. Remember that as you’re changing your diet, you should also be establishing a healthy lifestyle. You need to get more and better quality sleep, manage your stress, and get a healthy amount of exercise. It’s also essential that you have a job that you enjoy and that you deal with any conflicts in your life.
You want to modify your whole life to make your body better able to heal the Candidiasis.

It doesn’t make sense to be in a job that you hate, be in conflict with your neighbors, and then go and eat ten apples a day.
Eating a large amount of fresh fruit is going to achieve one thing. It’s going to make you go to the toilet quite a bit. It’s going to cause bloating and gas.
In a tiny minority of people, I have seen full recovery from Candida by eating nothing but fruit. But the chances of recovering from Candida by eating a huge amount of fruit is like the chance of winning a lottery. It’s not going to happen for the average person, so I wouldn’t waste my time going there.
Through my years of practice, I have observed that eating sour green apples and heritage apples like cox orange pippin does not stimulate Candida growth in the body. The reason why is that the sugar content of these types of apples is nothing compared to the modern, industrial apples available today.
There are a lot of fruits you can eat when you’ve got Candida. I’ve discovered that pomegranate is perfectly fine. I’ve also discovered that one kiwi fruit per day is perfectly fine for many people. Avocados are also fine, and most berries are fine to eat.
The fruit that you need to strictly avoid is melons, such as watermelon and rock melon. I’ve had patients tell me they are eating rock melon every day. However, you shouldn’t be doing that if you have a bad vaginal yeast infection. You might as well be eating five tablespoons of sugar per day. Watermelon is very high in sugar as well.
Many fruits are also potentially allergenic, especially a problem if you’ve got poor levels of secretory IgA in your gut. You’re going to get gas and bloating. You’re going to get allergies.
If you’ve got a leaky gut and eat lots of fruit, you’re going to get even a bigger problem.
Be very careful about eating lots of fresh fruit when you’ve got Candida.
I suggest doing a comprehensive stool analysis to find out what’s lurking in your gut. I also suggest you look at my 4 R program: remove, replace, re-inoculate, and repair. Follow that method, and you’ll probably be okay to eat some fruit.
