Malonic & Lectin Foods to Avoid


Sometimes I am inclined to do a comparison with what people recommend with various diets. The related article I wrote back in October 2017 about “Fresh Foods I Avoid and Why.”

Looks can be deceiving!  How many foods have Malonic & Lectin in this meal?


I have mainly followed the Hulda Clarke recommendations over the past 11 years. Her findings reported that Malonic Acid was found in tumours. After surviving this long, I am inclined to give credence that she was on the right track with which foods to eat and what to avoid.

The similarities between Dr H Clark and Dr Gundry recommend with their diets, to assist and improve health, including healing cancer.

If you are already taking care of your health by avoiding starchy, refined and processed foods. Delving deeper into the differences between Malonic Acid foods and Lectin Foods may also help improve your health if you have the willpower.

I was interested to find so many similarities between the foods to avoid.



Take for instance - tomatoes being on both lists, considering they are prevalent in our salads and foods in Australia. Some people remove all the seeds and consume that way. There again do what is right for you and what your body will tolerate.


To this day rarely do I have any dairy. The occasional meeting with friends and a cup of Latte in a coffee shop is all I have these days. I no longer have the addictive behaviour of craving cheeses, milk, cream and yogurts. Foods are like people, you can love them, BUT it doesn’t mean they are beneficial for you or love you back. 

While the foods tantalize your taste buds, when being digested in the gut they can harm your health, and the consequences is like a slow acting poison.

For example I have a low tolerance to quinoa due to it being high in oxalic acids, and prone to mold in the packets you buy off the shelves in the supermarket. Mold producing aflatoxins, which is a cancer causing toxic substance, which I know is not good for my health. This won't apply to everyone with cancer, I have found I have a particular weakness to it's detrimental effects. I live and breathe my research ......IT KEEPS ME ALIVE!



Always do what is right for you!

Stay Strong!

DO YOU HAVE THE WILLPOWER?




"Willpower" is something you discover within yourself, when you become sick and tired of being labelled according to other peoples perceptions and abilities. Other people is the term meaning  - referring to well people who don't have a medical label placed on them.

I am a born and bred rebel, who detests other people telling me what I can and can’t do. People who haven't been in my shoes - not even close. Dosing me with clich├ęs and chit chat which is surface grit. Annoying at best, like the sand that finds itself into your bikini or swimming togs when you are at the beach. Grating and irritating, rubbing the sensitive spots raw all the time.



Most of all I detested people who tried to smother me with sympathy. I wanted action and I wanted results!

Action and results are the mindset and self-talk I give to myself. No one else in my family or close friends were diagnosed with incurable terminal cancer with the bonus of being labelled disabled. As I have mentioned willpower was an amazing discovery. I never knew I had.

Being medically disabled flowed on to me becoming socially disabled. I didn’t have years to accustom myself to the changes in my body. I was too careless and didn’t heed the warning signs. I loved life and crammed it full every waking minute. Now the problem was identified, and I focused put my thoughts about how to go about fixing it.

When an acquaintance threw a bucket of cold water on me and told me on a self-pity party moment. That everything I experienced in my life at that point, was everything I asked for or let happen. After a few of days going through the denial stages. I finally admitted if I let all this happen to me and my current circumstances. Then it was time I grew a back bone stopped being so easy to get along with. I always admired people who draw this conclusion and change their lives so elegantly and make it look so easy.  I was more like the person with gumboots stomping around in a muddy pig pen. So crass and sooo.. undignified!



I stomped and cried and battled an emotional tsunami wave of emotions not just over days, but it took weeks and months. A real battle of the Titans between the changes I wanted to make emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritual tagged along as the bonus.

The thing about the intangible willpower everyone has hidden in them, is that it doesn’t surface until you put action to thought. You can lie to yourself and other people of the positive thoughts etc, but the willpower is yours and yours alone. Not a parent from our younger years, wanting us to succeed in a science project or essay assignment. No one can help you, it is time to built whatever mental bridge to get over the doubts and fears from holding you back.

Some days I would agonise over, doing all this hard work mentally and physically only to find myself slipping backwards - it would be a crushing blow to be sure. There again it was up to me to ensure to not slip backwards. The words never give up should have been tattooed on my forehead, because it was certainly tattooed in my soul.



I mourned the friends and acquaintances I thought I had. I learnt who of my friends had grit and who didn’t; it was a long time of mourning and coming to terms with my labels. I became a recluse; you understand, like the hermit or a person who doesn’t leave the house, what was the point. I had become invisible in society. No one wanted to talk to someone who would die in a couple of months. I was not worth their valuable time.

It has been thirteen years since the woeful soul searching person wrote the above words. I have gained a great deal of experience with the quiet times spent in reflection. I have learnt a great deal about myself and the rest of the world.

Without the hard times there is no way I would be enjoying the pain free world I live in today. I am grateful and so very happy. I never gave up on myself when everyone around me had given up, see… they really didn’t identify with me at all. And importantly I didn’t have a good perception of them either. Friendships and the threads that bind us emotionally and spiritually are clarified.

Discipline was something I sucked at and had to work hard at maintaining consistency, especially on the painful days.

It was learning to recognize, when to push through the procrastination lazy days, and when I had in fact pushed too hard, and when to hold back and rest my back. Frustration reigned supreme on many days, the doubts of never getting better. I developed affirmations to short rhythmic beats to drown out the doubting voice within me.

I write these words of my past to encourage and assist others who are currently going through the various stages with their health problems. As an empath I feel for you and all I can do is to send these encouraging words to transmit HOPE!

If you can't make the changes look simple and elegant. Then give yourself permission to stomp around in the mud and be crass. There is no judgement and no right or wrong.

The focus is on results and the outcome, at the end of this process.
Do what is right for YOU!

Either way forge yourself in fire and burn brightly.




Stay Strong!
