I have herd that nuts and seeds contain mold.  I have also been told that nuts and seeds are ok to eat when suffering from Candida.  My question is does the mold in nuts and seeds feed the Candida?  If anyoe knows the answer to this question please let me know thank you.

I don't know if the mold feeds the candida, but you can try soaking your nuts and seeds overnight to make them more digestible and also to clean them. Some people use a little hydrogen peroxide in the water to help with the cleaning process. I prefer nuts this way now, they are much easier to digest, and no more stuffy nose after eating them!

Just soak the nuts in room temperature water overnight, rinse thoroughly, and air-dry on a paper towel. I would imagine this process would work well for seeds too.

I would avoid too many nuts and seeds with candida since they are harder to digest and anything that is left undigested in the digestive system sits to ferment as food for candida, of course everyone is different and it depends exactly where you are in your healing

I believe one of the reasons some people soak their nuts and seeds overnight is that it helps with the mold issue.  

I also think that adding grapefruit seed extract or food-grade hydrogen peroxide will also help with mold issues pertaing to nuts and seeds.

I once added hydrogen peroxide to nuts and seeds in a bowl of water.  I then let them sit for an hour.  When I came back I saw a lot of foaming laying on the top of the water and the nuts and seeds lost the hardness, became rubbery, and were easy to bend.  

Does anyone know if this rubbery effect is a sign that the nutrients were stripped from the nuts and seeds?  

Thak you.

No, it just means the nuts and seeds have rehydrated. You can dry them out again simply by putting them on a paper towel or clean dishtowel and letting them air-dry, or by putting them in a warm oven for several hours.

Soaking also deactivates an enzyme in most nuts and seeds that seems to cause indigestion in some people, so that's an added bonus.

It's possible a small amount of nutrients are lost in the soaking process, but there's always a tradeoff when you alter the natural state of any raw food.

Some people find that soaking nuts/seeds with fresh lemon juice works.  Rinse the nuts after a few hours or overnight and then air-dry, put in the oven, or put in a food dehydrator to completely dry or crispen them.

I soak my nuts/seeds overnight in water and lemon juice.  Then, dry them over several hours in the oven on a low setting.  Works well for me.

I have my walnuts in a salad which has a dressing of coriander & chilli (with heaps of lemon juice & olive oil).  During the morning the walnuts absorb the dressing so by lunchtime they're really plump, slightly chewy and seem to digest quite easily.

people soak their nuts to lesson the enzyme inhibitors that are in certain nuts...which makes it easier to breakdown and digest...roasting does the same thing. Walnuts are about the easiest nuts to digest and the least likely to have mold hence their beneficial qualities for all blood types
