This link is updated regularly and contains technical data supporting the role of fungi and their byproducts in the disease process.  The purpose of this link is twofold; 

1. Many physicians, nurses or other healthcare professionals want more information on the fungus link to serious illness prior to prescribing anti-fungal medications or recommending a dietary change for their patients.  The articles posted in this link are scientific and with few exceptions are taken from medical journals familiar to healthcare workers.  In the interest of brevity, Luke Curtis, MD, locates relevant articles and then extrapolates the information making review simple.  Of course, the entire article is also attached.

2. Many lay people ask us for technical data supporting the link between exposure to fungus and symptoms and diseases.  We encourage all visitors to this site to take some time and study these technical articles prior to initiating lifestyle changes, including dietary changes and to do so with their physician's awareness and approval.  Tens of thousands of scientific articles confirm a fungus or fungal byproduct link to disease.  Attached are more recent articles.

Fine Dining and Phase 1

luke-curtis

If you are like me, you like to eat out. It is a great way to relax, connect with friends and family, experience your local culture, and of course, eat. Eating out has just as many cultural and social components as dietary ones, and if you are trying to stick to a restrictive diet, it can be a little tricky. Nobody wants to be the person at the table explaining to everyone why they won't or can't partake of a certain kind of food.

A number of studies have reported that dietary nutrients from fiber rich foods like oatmeal and nuts can significantly reduce blood levels of LDL cholesterol.
