Can You Eat Tomatoes On A Candida Cleanse?

August 17, 2019


Greetings. Eric Bakker. Thank you for coming back. Can you eat tomatoes on a candida cleanse? Why not? Who’s telling you you can’t? What tomato police out there is telling you
you can’t. You know? I can’t understand why so many people approach
me and say, “Can I eat this,” or, “Can I eat that?” It’s almost like I’m a policeman that’s the
person’s coming to me asking if they can go on parole or something like that, that they’ve
been in jail and now they want to get out. Don’t listen to people who’ve got very powerful
strong opinions on particular foods about you can’t eat this and you can’t eat that. Okay? Don’t listen to these people. You need to listen to yourself, listen to
your gut, listen to your immune system. It’s like anything in life. Everyone’s got opinions, but most of those
opinions mean nothing. I would say easily in nearly all cases people
can eat tomatoes. Many people jump on the solanacea band wagon,
that solanaceas are inflammatory, that they contain … Didn’t turn that phone off. That solanaceas contain things in them, alkaloids
that have a powerful inflammatory effect and are not good for people with autoimmune diseases,
et cetera. Well, I really spend a lot of time looking
into it. I looked into many different studies. I looked into research. I looked into the people who first started
to push that envelope, who start to push that out there in the public. It goes back to the 1940s and ’50s when agricultural
scientists noticed that cattle were getting sick eating solanaceas. Then another practitioner grabbed that information,
looked at it, and there was an extrapolation made and thought well if cows get sick eating
solanacea, then it’s not good for humans. Therefore, the assumption is made that if
people eat tomatoes, they’re going to get sick. If we go back to the Middle Ages, people avoided
tomatoes that were red. They thought they were toxic and dangerous
and would kill you. People back in the Middle Ages also were dumb
because they would eat tomatoes on plates with lead. The acids would help to liberate the lead
and create lead toxicity. That could be where that comes from. Please don’t fall for the BS. Tomatoes are a superb food. The antioxidant value of homegrown tomatoes
is through the ceiling. I grow tomatoes that are very old, that have
been around a long time. I studied tomato culture and what I learned,
that tomatoes used to be yellow historically. They never were red. They were bred to be red. In general the carrots are bred to be orange
because of the orange royal family in Holland. Carrots never were orange, but the Dutchees
got hold of them in the 1600s and turned them into orange carrots because historically,
they were purple and there were other colors. You need to look into these things carefully,
guys because what you read sometimes is not the truth. I mean this could be fake tomato news for
all we know. Don’t buy into it. If you can get really good quality organic
tomatoes. You go to farmer’s market, don’t get hydroponic
tomatoes. You might as well drink water. It’s gross. There’s no flavor. You’re basically got a piece of red skin with
a bunch of chemicals in it. That’s all you’ve got. I have yet to find any hydroponic stuff that
I like. To me, it’s just like eating newspaper. I got tomatoes growing at the moment. I’ve got about 20 vines all tied up on poles. I’ve got Roma tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes. I’ve got various ones. I love them. They’re a sensationally good food. They’re high in lycopene. Yellow tomatoes contain a special form of
lycopene that gets into the cell without requiring heating. If you can get heirloom yellow tomatoes, these
are the ones with the highest nutritional value. Don’t fall for the hype. Thanks for tuning in.

    Greetings Eric, l just got your E-book ,and enjoying it very much
    I can't wait to start the candida diet. I would have liked to make an appointment with you, but it looks like you are not taking any more patients. I have just this one question. I am taking an antidepressant and I have noticed that I can't take more than 2 canxida tablets. What should I do? I would really like to follow the diet, but my antidepressants are interfering. My dr. Doesn't want me to go off.
