If you’re eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and nutrients and not overeating sugar and carbohydrates and your immune system is functioning properly, there’s no reason why antibiotics should give you a yeast infection or a Candida infestation. This only happens when the immune system is not functioning properly, or when a person is eating a very unhealthy diet. In other words, the environment has to be in a condition that is beneficial for yeast to change into its fungal form known as Candida albicans.
