Candida Diet - Natural Yeast Infection Cure

Another natural approach to combating the overgrowth of yeast in the body and on the skin is to adhere to the Candida Diet. This diet consists of eliminating foods that are known to encourage the growth of yeast in the body and replacing them with foods known to contain “probiotics”, which are the yeast-fighting, friendly bacteria in the body.

When beginning the Candida Diet, your first step to yeast elimination is to cleanse your body of excess toxins, which is what an abundance of yeast really is. This can be accomplished by fasting, having a colon cleanse, taking herbs with detoxifying qualities, flushing the system with plenty of water, and exercise. This way you start fresh and will be able to see the benefits of the Candida Diet faster.

If you are looking for a proven, all natural cure then we suggest you take a look at Sarah Summers e-book. It generally cures a yeast infection in 12-16 hours, and uses only natural ingredients. It's the most well known natural guide available, and we fully support it.

Below you will find information on starting your natural, candida diet to help cleanse your body and eliminate the growth of mutated yeast.

Eliminating Sugar

The first thing to eliminate from your diet is sugar. Sugar promotes the growth of yeast. Refined sugar can take many forms when processed and the name will often change. Check your food labels carefully and avoid products containing ingredients with names ending in “ose”, which is usually a tell tale sign of being a sugar byproduct. Because carbohydrates that you consume are naturally converted to sugar in the body during the digestive process, carbohydrate intake should be limited as well, especially during the first two to three weeks of the diet. Some examples of carbohydrates to avoid are pasta, bread and anything containing gluten flour.

Avoid Yeast Products

Obviously, you want to avoid products that contain yeast. Aside from breads, some other food items that contain yeast are aged cheeses, beer, some types of mushrooms and tomato paste. As a point of reference, anything that is fermented will usually contain yeast. Products that contain vinegar or that use vinegar as a preservative should be avoided as well. Vinegar can alter the pH levels in the body, which can allow yeast to thrive.

Recommended Foods for Candida Diet

If you have a yeast infection and are interested in the candida diet route rather than taking medication, we recommend eating plenty of the following foods:

  • Fresh fruits
  • Fresh veggies
  • Foods that are high in protein such as:
    • Beef
    • Eggs
    • Chicken
    • Nuts
    • Seeds
    • Non-glutenous grains like rice & oat bran
  • Dairy products (other than aged cheeses)
  • **Plain yogurt with live cultures is especially encouraged, due to its proven track record with combating yeast

Be advised that this is not a complete list of foods that you should include in or eliminate from the Candida Diet, but merely a general overview. Because the Candida Diet can take weeks to bring improvement to symptoms, giving time for yeast to be eliminated and replaced with the “probiotics”, the Candida Diet is best used as a lifestyle change rather than just a temporary measure for combating yeast.
