This is my daughter Maya. She’s had eczema on and off since she was a baby. Over the years, we tried everything, including damaging drugs like steroids which gave her relief from the eczema, but the side effects made her sick. When she turned 7, Maya’s eczema was worse than ever. We turned to natural methods and spent hours researching cures. We had her undergo more testing and finally learned that, in addition to her skin condition, she had candida and parasites.
Our naturopath created a new diet for Maya to cure the candida and parasites. After months of trying to kill the candida, we almost killed our daughter with all the new diets we tried out of desperation. By then, Maya was losing weight and looking ill.
I was scared and nervous, and ready to go back to drugs just to get her some relief. Right around then, I discovered a vegan community on Instagram and learned about treating candida with a high-carb, raw foods diet. Though it sounded wacky, I was willing to try anything.
The next day, I started “Banana Island,” a 10-day program of eating only bananas. I tested it on myself and surprisingly, it felt amazing. I didn’t think twice and put my entire family on this plan. They were happy; I noticed right away a huge burst of energy and a dramatic improvement in their moods. For the next three months, Maya and her brothers ate mostly fruits, some leafy greens and vegetables with some healthy fats like avocado, coconut, nuts, and seeds in healthy amounts. After three months of detox, Maya’s skin started to heal.
We’ve been following a raw diet for six months now, and she still has a few tiny dry spots. They fade a little more every day and she is a happy and pretty girl.
For now, we’re all sticking to the raw foods diet. Everyone in our family has great energy and feels amazing.
