I’ve recently educated myself with all this internet info on candida. At first I wasn’t willing to give up my sugar diet, couldn’t imagine. Now I just want to feel good. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. For a period of 1 month I had eliminated sweets and was feeling better just doing that. I was still eating small amounts of whole grain carbs though. They don’t seem to bother me so much, but I think I will be best to limit them. I am looking forward to hearing any helpful tips anyone has on how they got better.
Thanks!May 6, 2010 at 8:31 pm #61689

Here are 6 dietary tips that will help you get rid of yeast infection:
Tip 1: Stay away from refined sugar and carbohydrates. Refined sugars like corn syrup, white and brown sugar and other refined carbohydrates like white flour, white rice and any type of cereals are all fuel for Candida. These foods help Candida to proliferate. To prevent Candida overgrowth, use Stevia instead of sugar and use whole grain non-gluten products such as brown rice, buck wheat bread to replace refined carbohydrates.
Tip 2: Stay away from foods that have yeast or mold, like white vinegar, mushrooms, calm, dried fruits, canned vegetables, bread and some condiments for this type of produces can also encourage Candida.
Tip 3: Stay away from antibiotics as this can debilitate your immune system and kill off the friendly bacteria that helps keep Candida in check. But antibiotics are not only found at the pharmacy, stay away from dairy products as this may also contain antibiotics. Since strengthening the immune system is an integral part of preventing yeast infections, daily consumption of garlic can lessen the likelihood of recurrent yeast infections.
Tip 4: Apart from the reason given above stay away from Dairy products, especially cow milk as it can lead to allergic reactions thus creating excessive mucus and taking longer to digest. Some of the main yeast infection factors can include allergies and digestive problems.
Tip 5: In preventing Candida overgrowth it is important to be aware of your body’s acid-alkaline balance. This means the right pH (potential for hydrogen) in your blood and body fluids. PH is measured on a scale from 0 to 14, where 0 is the most acid, 7 is neutral and 14 is the most alkaline. Your body should be at a pH level of 7.35 to function at its best. Acid environments are favorable for Candida proliferation. So you should stay away from acid forming foods such as red meats, fish, dairy and grain products and favor alkaline foods such as green vegetables, almonds, most fresh vegetables and green juices. Maintaining the ideal pH level in your body not only prevents Candida for reeking havoc, it also has the side benefit of increased energy, improved health and well-being.
Tip 6: Studies have shown that consuming foods that are rich in beta-carotene (a natural substance that’s converted into vitamin A in the body) gives you protection against yeast infections. Examples of food containing beta-carotene are: carrots, pumpkin, spinach and cabbage.
I hope this helps you.
