Hi! I recently got tattoos on my feet and was on them a bunch post-tattoo, and they have gotten aggravated and infected. It hurts to walk and i'm relaxing, on my butt, staying off of them. I work at a health food store, with a super knowledgeable, yet i feel mis-informed sometimes, boss. He has always commented to me on fruit sugars contributing to cancer, and now he is telling me to lay off the bananas and dates because "sugar feeds infection." I am wondering your thoughts on this. Does it follow the line of thinking I have read about in The 80/10/10 Diet (i believe) where you talk about conditions like candida not being caused by fruit eating so why would fruit eating exsaperate the condition. I feel skeptical about his advice to lay off the fruit, plus that's the bulk of what i eat these days; bananas and dates. He said my other option would be to fast, which i have always felt great and cleaned out from, but i wonder about this "infection loving sugar" stuff he's telling me. Thoughts? And i want to stear clear of the doctor, but my infection is not improving. I got the tattoo 9 days ago.
