Thank you, Margi :)

I just got this out of a book for sinus sufferers ( Sinus Survival, fourth edition, by Robert S. Ivker, D.O) but it deals with the same issue some of you are dealing with..yeast. Hope this is helpful..I know I was frustrated at the grocery store today!!


*Refined sugar and sugar-containing foods: cakes, cookies, candy, soft drinks, etc; anything containing sucrose(table sugar), fructose, maltose, lactose, glucose, dextrose, corn sweetener, corn syrup, sorbitol, and manitol; honey; molasses; maple syrup; date sugar; barley malt; rice syrup; NutraSweet; and saccharine; table salt (often contains sugar, use sea salt).

*To diminish sugar cravings, use chromium picolinate, 200 mcg 2times a day; biotin, 500-1000 mcg 2 times a day; and a yeast-free B complex, 50 mg 2 times a day. Four days without any sugar will also usually eliminate this craving.

*Milk and dairy products- all cheeses; (unsweetened soy milk is okay and so is butter, but not in excess)

*Bread and other yeast-raised baked items, including cakes, cookies, crackers; whole grain cereals; pastas; tortillas; waffles; and muffins.

*Beef and pork

*All mushrooms

*Rye and wheat(avoid for first three weeks of diet)

*Grapes, plums, bananas, dried fruit, canned fruit, and canned vegetables

*Alcoholic beverages

*Caffeine-both tea and coffee (herbal tea and green tea are okay)

*White or refined flour products, packaged/processed and refined foods

*Freid foods, fast foods, sausage, and hot dogs

*Vinegar, mustard, ketchup, sauerkraut, olives, and PICKLES (oops!!)

*Margarine, preservatives (check frozen vegetables), artificial sweeteners

*Refined and hydrogenated oils

*Leftovers-freeze them for a later date

*Rice milk(high carb content).

WEEEEEELL that doesn't leave much does it?? Damn I thought it was simpler than that... Well good luck to all!
