FUPO is here again!

Man – you can apply FUPO to almost anything and it seems there is often a connection! Especially when the traditional medical explanations and prescribed drugs fail.

What is F.U.P.O.? FUNGUS UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE!

What is the cause of the problem? Well – it could be fungus!

So here I am wondering about gout.

A good friend of mine recently revealed he had issues with gout and it made me ask myself the question – could gout be caused by yeast and fungal issues???

FUPO says yes – until proven otherwise. So I searched for info to support this theory that fungus in some way could be tied to gout flareups.

What is gout? It’s a kind of arthritis with pain from inflammation.

If I had more time I’d research it better and do something more profound – but for now I will share some a few basic thoughts and some links that are worth checking out.

I’ve personally been battling systemic fungal issues myself and I’m pretty convinced that yeast and fungus and mycotoxins are the root cause of most problems.

I’m on the path towards cleaning up the stuff in my body and have learned a lot from the guy that came up with FUPO – “fungus until proven otherwise”.  That Doug Kauffman is the guy who started this FUPO thing with Kyle Drew helping spread the term.

So does FUPO apply? Is gout caused by fungus and mycotoxins? Is there a fungal origin? Is the cause fungus?

I’m pretty convinced that Arthritis and Gout are directly related to having mycotoxins in the body from fungus and systemic yeast issues.

Here are a few links I found as I was looking into the connection between yeast fungus and gout. The stufff is eye opening and could be applied to so much more than gout! Fungus has it’s hand in many common ailments.

This first article I linked is eye opening and says:

“Nearly every medical school in the country teaches its students gout is caused by uric acid… So he stated that uric acid was not the cause of pain experienced by gout patients…. They found that uric acid is more than likely of fungal origin”.

Candida Albicans and gout

“Candida Albicans is caused by overeating sugar, refined carbohydrates, and yeasty foods; by drinking alcohol; by undereating fibre (mainly found in fruit and vegetables).Candida Albicans is also caused by taking too many antibiotics and NSAIDs. Excessive yeast, which builds up over years,drives out the beneficial bacteria so that the large intestine does not work as well in digesting food. Purines therefore are not broken down efficiently into uric acid, and uric acid’s removal is impaired.”

Sugar and alcohol and yeast containing foods are often the causes of gout flare ups.

“Within a few hours of ingesting sugar my big left toe feels stiff and aches, sometimes the ache goes up my leg. Sometimes my neck, my hands or my other leg hurts. I’ve noticed other symptoms that seem to be directly related to sugar…..and/or refined grains. I can’t seem to eat sugar or white flour (they are usually eaten in combination) without a yeast infection, and I can count on it disappearing in a day or two when I stop eating sugar/refined crap–100% of the time.”

Doug Kauffman Know The Cause Newsletter – knows a thing or 2 about yeast and gout.

“Bakers and brewers yeast is commonly called Saccharomyces cerevisiae. For thousands of years this species of yeast has been used to make breads and alcohol. In the case of alcohol, during a process called fermentation, yeast and carbohydrates are slowly converted to alcohol. Mind you, not only am I the guy to bring you “Phase 1” eating, but I’m also the guy who taught you to be very careful of eating, or drinking, yeast. I told you that way back in 1963, Dr. Svlia published an incredible article that taught us how brewers yeast produces the very caustic uric acid, purportedly the cause of gout (but now you know better since you know where the uric acid comes from).”

Some interesting info about gout and anti-fungal supplements like Olive Leaf Extract.

“Humans have used olive leaf extract for centuries to treat such conditions as gout, malaria, fever, and hemorrhoids. And as early as the 1900s, the leaves were also recognized for their antimicrobial properties. The active ingredient in olive leaf extract, called oleuropin, breaks down in the body to become elolenic acid. Elolenic acid is particularly effective against many strong strains of fungi. Olive leaf extract can help to treat fungal-related conditions like influenza, encephalitis, shingles, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, psoriasis, and sinusitis.”

The “Natural Flavor” in your processed factory made fast food might just be killing you.

I just learned that almost all processed food contains harmful additives known as exitotoxins, which ironically are allowed to be labeled as “natural flavor” or “natural flavorings” on food labels.

I’m sorry to say that until recently, I’ve been mostly blind to the ingredients I’ve been allowing to be put in my body when I buy food and beverages to eat both at home and in restaurants.

Sure, I’ve been reading ingredients labels more carefully for a few years now, but like most Americans, I have been more trusting than I should. I haven’t really paid much attention to a lot of the stuff I’ve been seeing as listed on the ingredients labels.

I’m human and I have made a lot of bad choices throughout my life as far as diet is concerned. I have blindly consumed all kinds of packaged food trusting that someone must be looking out for me and preventing me from consuming ingredients or chemicals that may be harmful.

Since “corporations are people” – right – the food companies must be concerned that I eat food with the healthiest ingredients, right??? At the very least they only allow “safe ingredients”, right?

And surely “big government” that has so much of a hand in regulating everything we do is protecting us, right?

The truth is – no one can protect you better than yourself. You can’t assume someone else is looking out for you and making sure the food you eat is 100% safe.

The fact is big food and chemical corporations exist to make money and while they certainly don’t want to kill their customers, they may on occasion, make decisions based on squeezing more profits out of the food and beverages they sell to us.

They are companies and are focused on being profitable. Also, people respond favorably to many of the things that can mask what they are really selling to us inside the container or shiny plastic wrappers.

And then consider that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) allows this problem to occur. The FDA categorizes many well documented and scientifically proven harmful ingredients as GRAS aka “Generally Recognized As Safe”.

NO ONE is really looking out for you and making sure you only eat stuff that won’t kill you or contribute to illness or disease.

So what about these excitotoxin things? what are they?

Recently I saw a show on TV that brought exitotoxins to my attention. As you might guess a word with “toxins” indicates “poison” is involved.

Excitotoxins include common food additives you almost can’t help but eat every day, including MSG, aka Monosodium Glutamate, and Aspartame (NutraSweet)

I now realize how serious of a situation it really is with the big food corporations playing dangerous games with our health and trying to fool us into a false sense of security by hiding poisons in the food.

The guest on the show was a neurosurgeon by the name of Russell L. Blaylock – the author of the book “Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russell_Blaylock

I found a lecture he did on Google Videos discussing Excitoxins which is worth watching:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2384105525501310962#

His book page on Amazon has some interesting details and of course a wide range of reviews which are interesting to read in themselves. It seems not everybody wants to believe that there could be anything harmful in our food and would rather be mad at the author for spreading the message. Weird.

http://www.amazon.com/Excitotoxins-Taste-Russell-L-Blaylock/dp/0929173252

While I will not attempt to explain in detail what he was discussing – I will say I was really affected by how common harmful toxic chemicals and poisonous ingredients are working their way into our lives.

Poison in the form of chemicals such as mercury, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, herbicides and insecticides and even foods including “natural flavorings” such as Monosodium Glutamate and NutraSweet, yeast extract, plant protein extract, natural flavors are everywhere.

The FDA even allows the corporations to rename their ingredients and hide them in healthy sounding names even such as “natural flavors” which last night I discovered was in the can of Andersons Split Pea Soup I was holding in my hand.

Here I have been eating food I thought was healthy only to add more of those harmful ingredients into my body.

I guess I now understand better why often people that are really sick will have a complete turnaround by going on a restrictive anti-fungal diet such as Doug Kauffman’s Phase 1 Diet, which does not allow any food that may contain yeast or mycotoxins (another word with toxins in it). The Phase 1 diet starves not only yeast and fungus but it makes sense that eating more wholesome natural foods will help get some of those chemicals and processed food ingredients out of our systems, allowing our bodies to heal in a more natural way.

Well, that’s enough on this – but I do hope I made you aware of some info that could be used to help protect yourself from some of the things that are surely causing many health complications as people just blindly eat what they put in those attractive packages.

If you still want more – I did find another interesting article called Excotoxins and You which is worth reading
