Sugar Habits - How to Break Them

msmith The Phase 1 diet serves a number of different purposes. Its primary purpose is twofold: to rid the body of pathogenic fungi by depriving them of their food of choice and limiting exposure to dangerous mycotoxins that contaminate certain foods.

All of these foods are contaminated with mycotoxins (or are mycotoxins, themselves, in the case of alcohol) or could potentially feed a pathogenic fungal infection in the body.

“…Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” –from Matthew 2:11

This is a familiar portion of the story of the magi, (sometimes called “wise men”; routinely said to be “three” in number, though the Biblical account gives no number), who came from a great distance to find Jesus.

Sick House Kills Actress and Husband

Doug Kaufmann

There are two things that disturb me terribly about fungus; that so few physicians acknowledge its ability to contribute to illness and death and the fact that those who do believe feel that only immunocompromised people-those with AIDS or on chemotherapy-are vulnerable to it.

 

A relevant case in point is spreading through the media like wild fire and it presents an unfortunate case as to the ignorance that exists in medicine when referring to mold or fungus induced illness.
