From New Zealand, where we’ve also got COVID-19. Yup, I think we’ve got 30, 40 cases now. Right. Let’s talk. What are you talking about now? Where was I? Which food should I start to reintroduce first after my candida cleanse? That’s a good question, which I’ve heard a billion times. I think I’ve already replied to this one 10 times, but here it goes again. All right. This is page 446 out of Candida Crusher, out of my book. I’m going to read a bit here.
After a period of time ranging from 6 to 12 weeks, there are many foods that may gradually be reintroduced back into your diet. Although this will depend greatly of course on the progress you’ve made in reducing your current symptoms. Golden rule number one. With food and drink re-introduction, examine the foods you like to eat before you started on the candida cleanse program when you’re at the peak of your dysfunction. It makes sense that if you go back to eating this way and living like this you may end up with the same crappy health all over again. So you need to change what you eat long term, if you want to really get on top of things. You can’t go back to old ways. All right?
Golden rule number two. If your symptoms are getting better, some may be getting better, some not, then keep on with treatment. I’ve absolutely no doubt in my mind that when I state that a lack of general perseverance is the number one reason why most people will fail to recover 100%. In fact, it’s the number one reason why most people fail to do anything in life. They just don’t persevere, they procrastinate, they put off. I’ll just have this cookie while I’m thinking about something.
Rule number three. If you’re not improving at all in spite following my program, or a candida cleanse program, including the dietary lifestyle and supplementation advice, if you followed all that carefully and you’re still not improving, then you’ve got what we call an obstacle to cure. There’s something there in your path that needs removing. Okay? If you stepped into my clinic we would find that obstacle. I’m good at finding blocks in the road and obstacles with patients. Now, it may not even be something you’re thinking about at all. Okay? It may have nothing to do with food. It may be the fact that your father-in-law is peeving you off. It could be your son on meth. It could be your neighbor on crack, or it could be Trump on God knows what. But the point I’m making is it may not be a physical food item you put in there that’s blocking your path. Okay?
So what are the first foods you get back into the diet? Well, think of it this way. When you started elimination you took lots of stuff out of the diet, but you also took out foods that you like to eat so you could put them back in later. So the first foods you introduce are not the foods you love the most. Okay? These are the foods that you feel a bit indifferent to, you could take them or leave them. It could be carrot or it could be broccoli or it could be a piece of fish or it could be something that you’ve taken out. But if you said to me, “Wow, man, I love this food. I like these foods the most.” Well, that’s not a good idea to introduce those foods straight away on day one. Okay? You may bring those in maybe a couple of days or weeks later. All right?

So the foods you love the most, there’s a possibility you’re going to overeat those foods or have too much of them, and that can get you excited, and get your blood sugar worked up a bit, and it can just push you off track. This has happened with many clients I’ve seen. So the first few weeks of introduction, you need to be careful. When you’re doing this introduction, it’s not a good idea to go into a new job or new relationship or go through a break up or something. Bad, bad, bad, it ain’t going to happen for you, my friend. You’re best to park these dietary changes until you got stability in your life. All right?
And then the other question I often get asked is when can I finally eat the foods I love to eat? All right? I really want to eat X, Y, Z food. Then my question to that client is when you were eating that food, what was your tummy like? What was your sleep like? What was your cognition like? How did you feel? Did you feel great? Did you feel average or poor? If they say, “Poor,” I’d say, “Well, maybe not a good idea to introduce that food now. We may take it down the track.” I look at a person’s face and I say, “Well, what about spinach?” “Oh, yeah.” Okay. Then that’s the food you need to introduce because you’re indifferent to that one.
So a good time to experiment with foods that you haven’t really tried before is with food introduction too, because you’re giving your gut a whole new type of fiber, a whole new type of protein. So you’re putting different things in the tummy at critical stages, so the body will get a bit confused. It won’t be necessarily pummeling an immune function at that food, because it hasn’t had it before necessarily. So that’s often not a bad idea. With introduction, small portion sizes of the food, not large portion sizes. Also, take your time, do things properly. Watch how the bowel and the gut is handling that introduction. Is there bloating? Is there gas? Is there cramping? Back off, back off. Just take your time, take your time. All right?
Probiotics and enzymes. CanXida Restore is a perfect supplement to take with food introduction. It’s going to really help the body break those proteins and fats and carbs down properly, and the enzymes will really do that job well. And the probiotics, again, will really help to repopulate that gut that’s been ailing for some time. So that’s an awesome product with food reintroduction. The CanXida Remove is good all through the program, but particularly at the beginning stages of the program when you’re cleansing and you’re just really getting a lot of garbage out of that tummy. And as I’ve said before with COVID-19 and this coronavirus, keep your gut in good shape. Keep the bug population down, keep the beneficial population up, and eat good food to support that, all right? Because with stress people make weird decisions. All right.
So introduction slowly. Just to reiterate, slow introduction. Foods you love the most come in on the tail end. Food you’re indifferent to or like the least should come in at the beginning to get the gut really stable. And then after a period of time, now we’re talking introduction could be two weeks up to two months, it depends on you. You should start noticing the tummy will settle down quite a lot. And as your energy improves, and your health improves, that obviously is a sign that you’re on the right track.
All right. Food’s like anything. If I got your motor vehicle and put really crappy gas in the tank, it’s not going to run well. And you say to me, “Hey, man. Next time you gas up put good gas in.” Same with your tummy, all right? Put good stuff in and you won’t get the problem. But put the kerosene in to start with with the reintroduction, and you’re going to get a lot of misfiring and backfiring and stuff like that. You don’t want that. All right? Stick with good food.
