Can You Eat Organic Peanut Butter If You Have Candida?

We recently received a question about the consumption of organic peanuts and homemade peanut butter made with plain peanuts and coconut oil. Is it safe to consume, especially if one is avoiding added sugar?

Our recommendation, as mentioned in our book Candida Crusher, is to avoid peanut butter for a period of two or three weeks during the intermediate phase. We suggest following the MEVY diet for a few weeks, which includes meat, eggs, vegetables, and yogurt. Additionally, we have a low allergy phase for two or three weeks. Within the Candida Crusher book, readers will find a diet sheet detailing which foods one should avoid due to potential allergens, as well as foods that are generally safe to consume.

Week Number Diet/Phase Primary Foods/Focus
2-3 Intermediate Phase Avoid Peanut Butter
1-2 MEVY Diet Meat, Eggs, Vegetables, Yogurt
2-3 Low Allergy Phase Follow Candida Crusher Diet Sheet

Based on extensive research and observations from numerous allergy tests, it’s been identified that peanuts have a high potential for allergies. While the allergic reaction varies across individuals – with some experiencing minimal reactions and others more pronounced ones – even a minor reaction can impact your immune system, especially when dealing with Candida. Hence, our recommendation is clear: eliminate peanut butter and peanuts from your diet for a specified period, regardless of how organic or clean they are.
