I'd like to hear the reasoning behind not including sauerkraut in the diet. I can explain why I think it should be included... it's a fermented food that contains a lot of 'benificial' bacteria, can't remember which ones. Especially if you make your own you're eating a large amount of fresh living bacteria which will repopulate your GI tract. History is full of examples of using fermented food for health, my grandmother recently told me how as a child she was made to drink sauerkraut juice to stay healthy. Maybe my great-grandmother knew about the role of benificial bacteria in the gut, or maybe she just absorbed knowledge from her mother that had been handed down for generations and discovered to be healthy over thousands of years of expirementation in diet.
I've heard that yeast/molds are very bad to eat on the candida diet, and I've heard that ANY non-pathogenic organism that you eat will only compete with candida in your body and hence is good. It could be the "no yeast" doctrine comes from the fact that it's called "yeast" and the fact that it's usually used with grains that are quickly coverted to sugar. I know I can't stand bread even in small amounts. I'm eating all the bacteria I can get, screw Dr. Crook.
