On The Candida Plan, we don’t recommend eating sugars and simple carbohydrates as they can support fungal candida growth; promote inflammation, hormonal imbalances, aches and pains, and rapid aging. We also don’t recommend sugar substitutes as these can promote some of the same responses, many times through the increase of insulin in the body. Thisis known as the Cephalic Response and is a conditioned response based on past exposure to sugars and their effect in the body. This type of learned stimulus-response was first put forth by Nobel Prize winning researcher-physiologist-psychologist-physician, Ivan Pavlov.
