Fungal overgrowth is the root cause of many diseases and disorders, such as depression, obesity, memory challenges, diabetes, certain types of cancer, upper respiratory conditions, often caused by the use of certain prescription or OTC drugs, surgeries under anesthesia and exposure to mold, mildew, metals and chemicals either in the environment, or even in our bodies (such as braces, crowns, bridges, fillings and other dental work). Our anti-fungal rotation, using the strongest anti-fungal supplements available without a prescription, can be helpful in resolving inflammation, pain, depression, gastrointestinal, neurological dysfunction and other diseases and conditions considered to be caused by fungal overgrowth.

Using the same anti-fungal continuously ceases to be effective, so we believe it is essential to rotate anti-fungals each month. Also NEVER use more than one anti-fungal at one time, as this can cause gastrointestinal distress and/or flu-like symptoms.

This is an example of how to rotate some of the most effective natural anti-fungals available without a prescription; we recommend purchasing, individually, all of the products that are in the Antifungal Package  from the FIGTREE VITAMINS STORE because they stock the specific products we have advocated for years and because the Anti-fungal Package contains all of the most highly potent, natural Antifungals needed for overcoming fungal overgrowth in your body.



THREE FULL MONTHS: Antifungal Rotation Regimen is the most effective natural way to resolve fungal overgrowth. In our opinion, the best products to use for this purpose are the most potent and pure, highly effective products from, which are their enterically-coated Garlic, their Olive Leaf and their Pau d’Arco. Also using a high-potency probiotic, such as their Probiotic Enteric-Coat, 35 billion CFU, is advised.


MONTH ONE ~ Take 2 GARLIC ENTERIC-COAT tablets upon rising and 2 FIGTree Garlic Enteric-coat tablets EMPTY STOMACH.

MONTH TWO ~ Take 2 OLIVE LEAF 500mg Capsules upon rising and 2 FIGTree Olive Leaf at bedtime WITH 1-2 FIGTree probiotics at bedtime EMPTY STOMACH.

MONTH THREE ~ Take 2 PAU D’ARCO Capsules upon rising and 2 FIGTree Paul d’Arco WITH 1-2 FIGTree probiotics at bedtime EMPTY STOMACH.

Also consider a probiotic, such as PROBIOTIC ENTERIC,35 Billion CFU Capsules (1-2 at bedtime EMPTY STOMACH) and increase, as needed, to address gastrointestinal cramping, bloating and other distress. This package contains just ONE bottle of FIGTree Probiotics, sufficient to last just two months if taking 1 per day. Some people need as many as 2 per day; the best time to take this probiotic is on an empty stomach at bedtime daily.


A second round may be necessary, particularly if the diet recommendations are not adhered to as diligently as needed. It has taken years and potentially an entire lifetime to get to the point that following the Antifungal Package becomes necessary, so please invest the time to getting well; even if it takes 6-12 months, it is most likely a mere fraction of the time you have been suffering from fungal overgrowth. 

Month 4: Same as month 1
Month 5: Same as month 2
Month 6: Same as month 3

It usually is not necessary to continue beyond 3-6 months to kill fungus; however, success depends upon the diligence of healthy dietary changes. The more sugars, chemical sugar substitutes, grains (especially soy!) and starches consumed, the longer this process will likely take (up to 3 years!). Consider following our Raw Cleanse for 2-4 weeks, following by our Antifungal Food Choices List Diet for at least the duration of the rotation regimen.


Consuming certain foods and beverages defeats the purpose of killing off fungus, if you are just going to fortify with the foods and beverages that help fungus thrive!

Other natural antifungal products may be substituted for those suggested above; however, the products recommended above have been used and proven highly effective for over a decade of experience in the natural healthcare industry. Further, please note the the label instructions on most products are for preventative purposes and not for therapeutic purposes, as we espouse. 

NOTE: Antifungals and other anti-microbials may cause a Herxheimer Die-off; while uncomfortable, it is usually short-lived (3-14 days); however, you are encouraged to read more about Herxheimer Die-off in this Reference Center (you will need to log-in with your User Name and Password to access this article, so if you have not yet done so, please register for a free membership): HERXHEIMER Die-Off

The Raw Cleanse should be followed for at least one week, preferably two weeks, and as long as four weeks, if able

Following our Raw Cleanse for 2-4 weeks provides you with live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids from the foods you consume, and helps you lose weight, yet gives you enough energy to work out and do anything you would normally do only you feel great! This diet/cleanse aids with resolving gastrointestinal dysfunction, pain, inflammation and other ailments, so now is the time to make a change.  After two – four weeks, add some beef, chicken, lamb or wild fish for more protein.

For two weeks, eat all of the raw, non-starchy vegetables, low-glycemic fruits, tree-grown nuts and seeds you enjoy. No meat or dairy of any kind, no starchy vegetables of any kind, no grain-based foods of any kind, no alcohol of any kind (yes, no beer or wine), no sodas, no processed food of any kind. Drink only water (although, if eliminating coffee and/or tea means you will not follow this cleanse, try to limit your coffee and tea to 8oz per day. Drink more water to offset these beverages).

Suggestions for foods (and all of their parts) to eaten raw and may be juiced with no sugar added. (NOTE: fruits should be consumed a minimum of 2 hours separated from all other food, except Granny Smith apples):

THE ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST/DIET ADDRESSES AVOIDING FOODS THAT FEED FUNGUS AND PARASITES; while some foods/beverages may be included on other diets, the Antifungal Food Choices List/Diet is different from the Low FODMAPs or Histamine Intolerance Diets. Each diet is a bit different from the other…here is one example: On the Low FODMAPs, you may have hard cheese, because the lactose was used up in the making of that cheese, but you cannot have milk or soft cheeses that contain lactose; however, on Low Histamine Intolerance List, you cannot have milk or any cheeses because they cause histamine. ALL Dairy is permitted on the Antifungal Food Choices List/Diet UNLESS you have an auto-immune disorder. 

These anti-fungal food choices are for all who love their sugar and carbs, who have any health issue, from being overweight to diabetes, gastrointestinal trouble to cancer, these recommendations will help to starve your body of the toxins that love the foods you crave! It is a “whole foods,” well-balanced lifestyle choice for eating properly.

“Sugar is without question the number one murderer in the history of humanity.” Sakurazawa, Japanese author of 50 books on natural healing – 1964

Refined sugars, artificial sweeteners and chemical / processed foods are the most likely catalysts for most of the diagnosed diseases and disorders in this country, including Cancer, diabetes, chronic urinary tract infections, heart disease, upper respiratory disorders, airborne and food allergies, fibroids, fibrocystic breasts, yeast infections, fungal nails, seborrhea, psoriasis and other skin disorders, acid reflux, diarrhea or constipation and IBS, many neurological disorders and more. Most importantly, sugar is the food for bacteria, yeast and fungal overgrowth, viruses and parasites. After decades of consuming alarmingly high amounts of animal fat, iodized salt, grains, starches, alcohol, caffeine, food additives and other toxins, it is time to get serious about health. ~ “Eat God’s food, not mankind’s food.”

  • Bread (is NOT permitted; however, you may try SIMPLY TRUDY’S “bread” is bound using psyllium husk powder and honey, both of which ferment and can dehdrate, so if you experience cramping, bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea, or any other gastrointestinal disturbances consuming this product, please do NOT re-purchase)

Drink water. While various teas, including green tea, will not feed fungus as long as you are not adding sugar to them, they do ALL contain various chemicals (caffeine, tannins, etc.) and you must drink extra water to help flush the chemicals inherent in them from your system. The general rule of thumb is to consume half your body weight in ounces of water daily (ie – if you weigh 100 lbs, you need 50 ounces water daily; 200 lbs, you need 100 ounces daily)

NO soy (in any form, except as lecithin, a trace emulsifier in many supplements), NO wheat, barley, rye, quinoa or other grain, NO peanuts, peas, corn, sugar or artificial sweeteners (aka: no diet anything), NO skim or fat-free dairy (use organic, raw whole dairy when possible, including cream), NO yeast-based breads, oranges, tangerines, strawberries, bananas, grapes, NO fruit juices, dried fruits, mushrooms, truffles, blue cheeses or other yeasty, moldy or fungal foods.
