you know by now from reading my book and this newsletter,
food sensitivities are a major underlying cause of many
cases of arthritis and other diseases. Because of my own
experience, the specific food sensitivities I am most
familiar with are corn, rice, wheat, and beef.

My saga began about 20 years ago and I am now doing
great after much trial and error. The major thing
one must learn when one has vaginal yeast infections
is that candida albicans resides in one's system from
the mouth to the bitter other end. If the little critters
in our digestive system are fed sugar of any kind
they love it and multiply instantly... this is not
just white sugar or honey or any of the many other
sugars like dextrose, maltrose, sucrose, etc. - I
think there are 9 different names for sugar, but also
grains and food high in carbohydrates.
I found I could control my yeast infections a little
by living off protein and veggies. In addition, my
adrenal glands were almost non-functioning and I had
a very high copper content, as well as mercury in
my system. They were so high the graph did not fit
on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper.
I tried many things over the 20 years - since I was
living on will power -and a small glass of wine or
a bit of yogurt kicked off feeling bad and a horrible
yeast infection for days. Major things that helped
were having the mercury taken out of teeth, not allowing
root canals, and doing chelation and IV vitamin treatments,
along with lots of sleep, xercising when I could,
eating only proteins and veggies, no fruit, no milk
products, no carbohydrates or grains for many years.
I am now so well that I can do nuts and fruit again
in moderation - last night I sinned
and boy it was back with a vengeance today...but it
also goes away within 24 hours.
A book which might be of interest is by the late
Dr. William Crook, “The Yeast Connection.”
I hope this brief synopsis helps some – I have
had no real sugar for 20 years and only in the last
few months have been adding fruit in moderation -
it ain't easy but it is worth it to be alive again.
I walk up to 6 miles a day and swim a half a mile
daily - it is great to be feeling good again.
