The Fungus Link was an incredibly helpful and informational tool for me to deal with chronic candida. As a research fanatic, the explanation of just HOW fungal toxins disrupt and injure the body and how to eliminate them made all the difference for me. There's a huge difference between knowing you have a condition and treating it and REALLY getting it and being empowered to deal with it in a holistic way - through nutrition, lifestyle, etc. Doug makes something complicated easy to understand and conquer! The Phase I diet really does work and isn't difficult to achieve on a daily basis with some effort. Knowing what foods to avoid during a healing crisis helps a person to realize what foods to avoid in the long run, as going back to them may regenerate the problem. As a result of faithfully following the Phase I diet and continuing to abstain from sugar, cheese, most grains and white flour products, I have achieved and maintained a 52 pound weight loss, lower cholesterol, significantly lower triglycerides, blood pressure and much more energy! A definite MUST READ for anyone suffering from candida, cancer, obesity, diabetes and many other ailments - fungal overgrowth, toxicity and candida is far reaching!!

I have (or had) Lupus and this book changed my life. I went on the Phase I diet and all of my blood test went back to normal, no more joint pain, sun sensitivity etc. etc.. All my "symptoms" went away. Was my Dr. interested in how I did it, NO, she just said you don't have to come back unless you have a flare, said she never had a patient "graduate" before! This book is a God send for anyone with an autoimmune disease and it helps lots of other health problems also. Search out this book it will change your life also!

I was given this book from my mother who believed I had a fungal condition after having to take several heavy treatments with anti-biotics from infections I got from operations. After the antibotic treatments were finished, I had unexplainable weight gains of almost 100lbs each time. My doctor was stunned and even put me into the University of Chicago Hospital for observation and even they had no idea. But one thing stuck out from reading the book that pretained to me. It mentioned high triglyceride's and high colesterol counts, which I had hi triglycerides for apparently no reason. I was just breaking the 350lb barrier and any diet or exercise program had no permanent effect. But when I started the diet in the book, it had an immediate effect on me. I always had acid reflux, this is now gone, I also had swelling of the feet legs and mid section, this has subsided, and I started dropping weight, by the way i am only 42 years old and I have been fighting this condition for over 15 years with out knowing I had it. The rest of the book is full of interesting information that may surprise you, I know it surprised me.

I believe Doug Kaufman's "theory" regarding the effects of mold, fungus and yeast on one's body has saved my life. In 2000, my osteo-arthritis was CURED with anti-fungals, acidophilus, glucosamine and MSM. That convinced me yeast does indeed cause arthritis and other diseases!
(Incidentally, all of my allergies are also gone; cured by the anti-fungals I took for my arthritis!)
Later, I went on Adkin's diet, (similar to Kaufman's).I had nausea for the first ten days. I believe this was caused by the yeast in my colon travelling up through my GI tract, in search of it's "food" (carbohydrates, sugars). When the nausea left,
I broke out in a rash, which I believe was the yeast coming out through my skin.
What a releif to know the cause of so many deadly illnesses is now gone from my body! That is why I say Kaufman saved my life!
I have seen similar reductions in carbohydrates quickly reduce a man's dependency upon insulin. Whatever your illness, please try Kaufman's plan, to see if yeast is the cause. You might just find a CURE for what ails you, instead of simply treating symptoms for the rest of your life!
Kaufman also wrote "The Germ that Causes Cancer" and "Infectious Diabetes". ....

I actually went on Doug Kaufmans initial phase, which in included in this book, diet then stayed on the long term diet for about a year. Stunning results! To me it was much more than just an interesting concept, idea, or theory

In the first couple of weeks. I lost 45 pounds, my blood suger immediately fell into the normal range from always being over 140. And surprisingly my blood pressure fell from 170-100 to 120-80.

I was amazed to find a concept that really worked and did not try to sell me anything beyond the concept my problem was fungus and his book.
