I’m new to this forum. I have a question- I’m confused why kefir is suitable for a candida diet as it is fermented and contain yeasts. During my research I can’t find an answer, and others say it is not suitable. I have started to drink it[second day]
Annidee, You need to watch your own body closely for a reaction to the kefir. If you don’t have any adverse reactions to it, then it should be ok. I’m not sure where you get the idea that something that is fermented is bad for someone with candida.
Fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut are highly recommend for candida sufferers. The fermentation process builds healthy probiotics. From my personal experience the most effective probiotics for me have come from sauerkraut. I have had reactions to milk based kefir and had no luck trying to make water or coconut milk kefir. I would definitely recommend you either have some form of kefir or fermented vegetables. Otherwise you are missing out on one of the best sources of probiotics.
ALso, I just noticed you mentioned kefir contains yeasts. There are many different types of yeast. Some are good yeasts and others like candida obviously not so. The strains of yeast in kefir build colonies of healthy bacteria in your body.
