On the Candida-Free Diet laid out by Doc Jones (Module 2), it is suggested to avoid fermented foods, and yet in other modules/blogs/etc. the fermented foods are recommended... so, when and where can we have the fermented stuff? (Which I absolutely love to down, by the way. Also, make my own...)

On another note, on Module 3, the fact comes up that, yes, herbs and drugs can/do interact. I have found and recommend the book, "Herb Contraindications and Drug Interactions" by Francis Brinker, N.D. A very handy resource...

Thank you for that book recommendation.

And re fermented food: making and drinking kefir has restored my gut. I’m a believer.

The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas first.

Fermented foods are fabulous. I just don't recommend them during the Candida cleanse. :)

You could argue that the good bugs in the ferments help out compete the Candida.
You could also argue that lots of folks have some Candida is in their ferments.

I don't like arguing so I just say skip it that week. :0)
