Many people have heard of the No Sugar, No Yeast diet. Yet, an essential component is often missing. This is pau d’ arco, the bark from a tree in the Amazon rain forest. This tree provides anit-fungal, anti-yeast properties that can be effective in helping to eliminate yeast, and to lose weight with a healthy diet. Here are some of the specific steps to a No Sugar, No Yeast diet, with Pau d’ Arco.

Consult with a Health Care Provider

A consultation with a health-care provider reviews the qualities of pau d’ arco, combined with a diet free from sugar and yeast. The pau d’ arco bark can also be a beneficial addition to daily life. The most important guidelines are to avoid sugar, sugar substitutes, and yeast. Plan the diet with the guidance of a health-care professional, with supplies from a health food store, grocery store, farmer’s market, or garden.

Pau d’ Arco Tincture and eyedropper
A water glass for 1-6 drops of pau d’ arco tincture every morning before eating.
An assortment of cereals without sugar, such as oatmeal, bran, or rice cereals.
An assortment of green vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, asperagus, or kale.
An assortment of root vegetables such as carrots, parsnips, potatoes, yams, sweet potatoes.
An assortment of nuts, including almonds, walnuts, cashews, and macadamia.
An assortment of seeds, such as sunflower seeds or soy nuts.
An assortment of plain meat, such as chicken, beef, pork. (Avoid “sandwich” meats).
An assortment of seafood, such as salmon, cod, trout, crab, clams, mussels, oysters, sardines.
An assortment of salad dressings which do not contain sugar or sugar substitute.
An assortment of oils and vinegars. Olive oil is a favorite.
An assortment of rice.
An assortment of teas, including peppermint and chamomile.
As always, fresh is better, but canned or frozen food will also work.

Soy milk and products can be milk substitutes for adults.

Children often are not given soy products.

Begin a Notebook

This notebook is a place to jot down anything that seems important. Here are possible items to note:

Some people note what they eat each day.
Some people write about how many drops of pau d’ arco they used.
Some people write about how they are feeling.
Some people write about their goals besides the diet, such as career, family, or personal goals.
Some people sketch or tape photos or illustrations onto the pages.
The important aspect of a notebook is that it records the effort, and gives a place for reflecting and planning.

Plan When to Begin

Very often, it’s best to begin a new plan when there are a few free days, if possible. Yeast depends on sugar, and when denied sugar, the yeast will die. This die-off process can initially last for two or three days, especially with the aid of pau d’ arco.

Thus, it’s beneficial to have some free days to deal with the yeast die-off symptoms. This is not the time to have overnight visitors, or to go on a business or pleasure trip. The change in diet works best with a day or two of “down” time.

Start a Healthy Diet

Beginning the habit of eating healthy food can pay off in more energy, better rest, and a healthy outlook on life. Some people are surprised to find that they are not hungry, that they have lost the craving for sugar and yeast products, and that “cheating” by eating sugar and yeast products make them feel immediately bad, and gladly return to the healthy choices.
