I believe that fungal poisons (mycotoxins) change all the rules for a person’s health. I learned this from several open-minded physicians whom I worked for in the capacity of clinical nutrition. These doctors allowed a short trial of antifungal medications and my antifungal diet if the cause of a person’s health problems could not be identified. What I witnessed daily was what this physician, H.L. Newbold, M.D. wrote about in 1989.
“A 37-year-old white woman consulted me because she had chronic monilial vaginitis that had not cleared with conventional therapy. Incidentally, she also had acne on her face. Both her vaginitis and her acne were controlled when she took nystatin 500 mg (one-half teaspoon) six times a day. Trial and error revealed that she could reduce the dosage of nystatin to half if she stayed on a diet free of most grains, sugar, and dairy products. At present she is not taking nystatin and has no acne or vaginitis if she stays on her diet and limits herself to rare, small amounts of rice, potato, and fruit. Most of her calories come from fish, chicken, and beef that includes generous amounts of fat.”
Two years earlier, in 1987, I made this identical discovery while working with a prominent Dermatologist in Dallas, TX. Patients whose skin conditions did not respond to traditional therapies (there were many) tried two prescriptive antifungal drugs (one for the gut, the other for the blood stream) and my antifungal diet for 14 days. The results were best described by him as being “near miraculous,” after about 4 months of working together. There are many diseases that science has no answers for. In my opinion, 100% of these should rule out fungus first before beginning life threatening programs.
