The Official

"MOLD DETOX DIET"

Mold thrives in even the smallest grain, starch,carbohydrate and sugar environment. They use sugars in all forms and grains for survival energy to grow and multiply

This is an 8 - 12 month Strict Detoxification Diet
(*Individual results will vary - participants see better results by staying in "month 3/strict detox" for up to 6 or more months) 
(Unfortunately Cheating during the 6 month Mold Detox Diet will result in continued mold growth in the body)

Month #1: Sugar Weaning

  • No refined sugars - Listed HERE
  • Mold Detox Juicing - Once a week - You can get the recipe HERE
  • No Leftovers - Leftovers grow small amounts of fungus overnight in the fridge.  To save your food safely, freeze (WITHIN ONE HOUR OF COOKING)  it in the freezer in safe "glass and BPA-free" containers and only reheat on the stove top later.  Frozen leftovers can be kept in the freezer for up to one month safely. 
  • No cooking or reheating food with a microwave -  You are radiating your food and creating a toxic scenario in your body with radiation, lack of minerals and vitamins and no enzymes.  If you have a microwave it's probably a good time to decide to throw it out. 

 

Wean yourself off of ALL refinded sugars.  This includes crystal sugar, brown sugar, sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup and more.  Check here for a FULL LIST of hidden sugar "names" in the industry.  Hint: most packaged foods have refinded sugar so in this month phase you should begin to avoid all packaged foods.

So what do you eat in the first month of Sugar Weaning?  An easy way to wean off of sugar is by following the Whole30 diet.  In this first month you are ONLY learning about sugar and you are training both your brain and your body to get rid of it's cravings of sugars.  If you NEVER eat any kind of sugar, boxed, canned or processed foods and you are positive that you do not need to do a sugar detox for a month, please skip month #1 and move on to month #2. 

The first month just concentrate on learning about how sugar is hidden in everything we eat and how to detox yourself from sugar. 

Month #2: Remove Moldy & High Histamine Foods

  • No refined sugars - Listed HERE
  • No Moldy Foods - Listed HERE
  • No High Histamine-Producing Foods - (If you have symptoms of histamine intolerance only) 
     
  • Mold Detox Juicing - 3 times per week - You can get the recipe HERE
  • No Leftovers - Leftovers grow small amounts of fungus overnight in the fridge.  To save your food safely, freeze (WITHIN ONE HOUR OF COOKING)  it in the freezer in safe "glass and BPA-free" containers and only reheat on the stove top later.  Frozen leftovers can be kept in the freezer for up to one month safely. 
  • No cooking or reheating food with a microwave -  You are radiating your food and creating a toxic scenario in your body with radiation, lack of minerals and vitamins and no enzymes.  If you have a microwave it's probably a good time to decide to throw it out. 

Month #3, #4, #5 (90-DAY Strict Detox) - Starving out mold and Candida, reducing reactions and increasing the body's ability to absorb vitamins and minerals.

(Maintenance):

Whole30, GAPS, Paleo, BulletProof, sugar free/grain free, Glulten-Free diets are recommended on a permanent basis.  *NOTE: Vegan and Vegetarian Diets are NOT recommended for anyone suspecting fungus, mycotoxin or mold overgrowth in the body.  Good Fats especially certain forms of animal fat are essential as building blocks to restore cellular function, DNA repair and in some cases myelon damage most commonly found in MS.

  • WOW!! WHY?...............Unfortunately after being exposed to toxic molds your body will be susceptible for life with Aflatoxins, Ochratoxins and Trichothecenes found in food.  Your body will have "heavy antibodies" against these molds in the future and a lot of our food supply has small traces of toxic molds in them.
  • Also, it will be easier for Candida to get out of control "very quickly" in persons previously exposed to Toxic Molds.  (Sometimes it only takes 3 weeks of eating carby foods AGAIN to get a "MASSIVE" yeast, candida or new fungal infection in persons previously exposed to toxic molds). This is why I highly recommend any of the following diets above as a maintenance "for life' protocol.

Mold Exposure & Nutrition

People who have been exposed to toxic mold have impaired digestion. Improving their digestion improves their nutritional status and also improves their detoxification abilities. Mold also affects a persons short-term memory and executive function. This presents a challenge when it comes to convincing people to improve their nutritional status and detoxification.  I've created this portion of my site that tries to explain and offers pre-made recipes and food buying guides to grasp the concepts and then being able to implement the required changes so that healing is easier.

Being exposed to Mold can Cause Food Sensitivities

You may not know but being exposed to toxic molds can cause food sensitivities..I don't have the time to go into all the details here on the Mold Detox page but trust me once you feel the effects of a food allergy you'll know what I'm speaking of.  Let's hope you don't suffer as I have suffered.  For that reason I recommend downloading Dave Asprey's "BulletProof Food Detective" app.  You can download it HERE and get more information about this awesome tool for finding hidden food reactions as you approach this Mold Detox Diet.

Meal Planner that I use

Simple Meal Planning - Plan to EatPlant To Eat honestly is the most awesome tool I have ever used on the internet that let's me customize my meal plan according to my diet restrictions and plan breakfasts, lunches and dinners (even snacks) that correlate with my Mold Detox Diet.  Sometimes a one-size fits all approach does not work when going on a detox diet.  Some might have food sensitivities that others may not have and so on. 

With this tool I am able to 100% costomize my meals and schedule them perfectly so that I don't cheat and my mold-free goals become more of a reality instead of relying on my will power or lack of meal planning to get me through this detox period.  GO HERE or click on the banner above and you can usually get a 30-day free trial then it's only $4.95 a month thereafter...like I said, nothing has ever made this whole mold detox diet more simple than Plan To Eat has for me.

 

90-Day Strict Detox - Approved

GENERAL GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW:  Always buy Organic, grass fed, pastured eggs/chicken, Non GMO, No preservatives, No colors added, No sugar added, No Carageenan, No Soy, No Corn, No Gluten etc., No Iodized Salt. 

Mold-Safe Sweeteners

Raw Unfiltered Honey 
BUY HERE

(Studies: (1), (2)
RAW honey that is straight from the beehive is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and therefore DOES NOT feed mold, fungus or candida in the human body.  It is also SCD compliant and ok for people with SIBO as well. 

 

Monk Fruit 
BUY HERE
anti-inflammatory, anti-histaminic, low glycemic, high antioxidants (fight free radicals like mold), helps liver function, anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-cancerous, has some minor binding properties. Heals the gut.

Beverages

 

Filtered water
I highly recommend Berkey Water Filtration systems.  Make sure you also get the chlorine and flouride filters as well. 
BUY ONE HERE

 

 

Spring Water (preferably straight from the stream using glass containers not plastic) Do you have a natural spring near you?  If not you can: Find a spring close to you HERE
 

 

Hemp Milk 
Pacific brand "Original flavor" has no sugar, no preservatives and no carrageenan.   You can use this in place of milk for any dish or baking project.  
BUY IT HERE

 

 

Unsweetened Almond Milk with (No carageenan or sugar) Vanilla is ok.  Seems that only Silk or Almond Breeze meet these criteria.  You can check other brands but most of them contain caraeenan and extra sugar which you need to avoid.   BUY IT HERE
 

Coconut Milk - Be careful buying coconut milk that contains guar gum or carrageenan.  Both of these ingredients can wreak havoc on your gut lining.  Also, avoid coconut milk if you are "HISTAMINE INTOLERANT".  The two brands I have found that are good are: Native Forest and Natural Value.  Both of these can be found on Amazon.  Buy Native Forest HERE and you can buy Natural Value HERE

 Coconut Water  - The best brand is Monkito.  Best brand for the Best price.  You can buy Monkito Coconut Water HERE.  Organic/Only buy the most natural and sustainable brands that are not overly processed with heat or contain dangerous chemicals that destroy your gut like guar gums or carrageenan.  Not all coconut water is healthy for you.  Some can actually be harmful.  Here is a great guide for buying your Coconut Water.  Avoid the brands Zico, Vita Coco and Naked.

  • Foods that cause "GUT PERMIABILITY" - (Wheat/Gluten, Grains, Dairy, Gums, Sugar, Hydrogenated Oils)
     

  • Foods that alter the endocrine system:  Estrogenic Foods (soy etc., processed foods)

NO Refined Sugar:

White Sugar
Brown Sugar
ALL Sweeteners (except the ones on the approved list)
High Fructose Corn Syrup

NO Simple/ Complex Carbohydrates: 
(No Simple sugars):

Cane sugar, beet sugar, date sugar, corn syrup, maple syrup, pasturized honey, molasses, and dextrose. 

(No hidden sugar foods):

Canned, bottled, boxed and other packaged and processed foods often contain refined sugar products.  Grains, breads and pastas are from grains no exceptions. 

ONLY CERTAIN NUTS
Avoid Cashews, Pistachios, Hazelnuts, Peanuts, These nuts have a higher concentration of molds and mycotoxin because of the way they are stored and harvested.  ONLY eat nuts from the approved list.   No cashew butter, Hazelnut spreads, Peanut Butter or Sunflower Butters. 

ONLY CERTAIN SEEDS
So Sunflower Seeds, Sunflower butter or Sunflower oils.  They are considered moldy foods to avoid.  Only eat the approved seeds in the 90 day strict detox food list. 

NO Chocolate/Cocoa
No Chocolate or Cocoa of any kind during strict detox.  Cocoa beans and chocolate are known to produce Ochratoxin A Mycotoxins during storage.  This is considered a "toxic moldy food".  Read Scientific Data HERE

Beverages: 
NO beverages except some herbal teas, unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, SPRING or PURIFIED or FILTERED water, No alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer, whiskey, gin, vodka, etc.  Also avoid cider, root beer, chocolate, coffees and MOST teas (there are exceptions in the tea category.  Research teas that are antifungal or are detoxifying as those will probably be safe and not carry a risk of mold or mycotoxin contamination.)  NO Coffee.  (Not even Bulletproof Coffee).  Most Coffees have mycotoxin although BulletProof does not..but mycotoxin isn't the only reason to avoid coffee during a mold detox.  Coffee taxes the adrenals and can cause the body to be too acidic which is not good for anyone with a chronic illness.  Most Teas also have high levels of mold and mycotoxins.  Only drink the approved teas on the list. 

No Vinegars
Contrarty to what is being promoted as a "health product", vinegars are not good to ingest in people that have been exposed to toxic molds.  In general these products can offer health benefits but ONLY to people who were not otherwise exposed to toxic fungi.  See, vinegars are made from moldy grains.  *It is ok to clean with vinegar but try not to ingest vinegar during the 3-month strict detox. 

Condiments: 

No condiments containing vinegar.  These include ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, picante sauce, salad dressing, barbecue sauce, soy sauce, sauerkraut, pickles, and olives.  Etc.
 

Malt: 

No malted products such as malted milk drinks, candies and some cereals. 

 

Processed Meats: 

No pickled and cured meats and fish including sausages, hot dogs, corned beef, pastrami and pickled herring and all lunch meat.  No MSG found in processed food.

Milk and Milk Products (mucous forming): 
No animal-based milk
No sour cream
No cream cheese
No cottage Cheese
No coffee creamers

No fermented products (for 6 months straight) *use probiotics instead during the detox period
No Kefir
No Cows Milk Yogurt (Only use goat milk yogurt in first month or last month of the mold detox diet) During detox only consume coconut milk or hemp milk yogurt)
No Kombucha
No Saurkraut
No Sourdough breads
 

No "Grain-Based/Sugar containing" Milk substitutes
No Soy Milk (has beans, is estrogenic and is conidered a moldy food)
No Almond Milk unless it is homemade or if it is sugar free
No Rice Milk (rice feeds mold)
No Pea based milk or protein powders (peas are starch)
No Cashew Milk (Cashews are considered moldy foods)

Cheeses (mucous forming and fungis/mold forming)
sharp cheddar, Roquefort, Swiss, cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, nondairy products (coffee creamer), cream, parmesan cheese or grated cheese, etc. 

Fruit:  Limit fresh Fruit (DURING ENTIRE 6 MONTHS OF DETOX) except avocado, berries and GREEN apple, or mangoes.   No canned fruit, no dried frozen fruit and fruit juices, fruit candies, fruit flavorings

Yeasts: 

No yeast leavened breads and rolls, donuts, pizza dough, sour dough products, and no crackers and no cereals. No beer or alcohol containing any yeast. 
No nutritional yeasts.

Flours/Starches:  Thickening agents
No ArrowRoot Flour (feeds mold)
No Starch
No CornStarch (contains corn which is a moldy food)
No Tapioca Flour or Starch
No Potato Flour (feeds mold)
No Rice Flour (feeds mold) 
No Quinoa Flour (converts to sugar in the body)
No Gluten Free Flours (most contain potato or corn)

No Tigernut Flour - Tigernut is often approved for Paleo and AIP diets, however scientific evidence shows evidence of higher than normal levels of toxigenic molds and therefore it is considered to be on the list of moldy foods to avoid to detox from a mold condition.  After a complete mold detox diet it may be ok to use into the future. 

No Cassava Flour (too much starch/feeds mold)

NO GUM additives
No Guar Gum
No Xanthan Gum
No Carageenan
No Agar Agar
No Locust Bean
No Cellulose
No Lignin
No Algin

Grains & Grain products (grain products are both FUEL for mold spores and Candida and also contain traces or high amounts of myxotoxin producing molds)

No Corn
No Oats
No Wheat
No Rice READ MORE
No Amaranth READ MORE
No Barley READ MORE

Edible Fungi
No mushrooms, morels or truffles of any kind.  Toxic molds compete with ALL other species of the mold kingdom and will wreak havoc on your system because they are competing for survival.  Wait until after detox before attempting to eat mushrooms of any kind.  You might be unpleasantly surprised when you feel sick after eating them or worse, have a bad reaction. 



Starchy Vegetables

Take special precaution with vegatables/foods that tend to have excess mold or high in starch.  No potatoes, sweet potatoes, no peas, no beets etc. should not be eaten during "3 month strict detox" period.  After 3 months only incorporate small amounts of beets and sweet potatoes back into the diet to aid the liver and spleen in detoxification.  Potatoes should be avoided for at least a year or two after a mold exposure. 

 

NO Beans or Legumes

- Beans and legumes can carry aflatoxins in small traces, however their carb content is high..remember mold feeds off of sugars of any kind. Beans are also high in lectins and can wreak havoc on an "already-compromised" gut lining. 

 

Seafood

NO SHELLFISH OR BOTTOM FEEDERS - This seafood feeds off of the waste products that fall to the bottom of the ocean and have an over abundance of bacteria and fungus.  Stick with fresh water fish like salmon and tuna. 

 

Pork
Pork has nitrates, high sodium, parasites, bacteria and tests positive for toxic mold strains like aspergillus.
