One effective cure is to eliminate all foods that feed Candida Yeast infections (be sure to seek medical advice before making any major changes to your diet).
One popular diet for killing off Candida Infections forbids affected individuals from eating the following:
- Sugars, to the point that even fruit may not be allowed,
- Food with high yeast and mold content, like cheeses, dried fruit, melons and peanuts,
- Milk, dairy products, and food with high lactose content (this means that you cannot eat yoghurt, but you can use it to alleviate the effects of yeast infection in other ways).
This diet allows you to have the following:
- Filtered Water,
- Herbal teas,
- All vegetables,
- Sources of protein (meat is allowed, as are fish, poultry and legumes, although soy and soy products are known to have side effects),
- Whole grains like millet, brown rice, and oatmeal without sugar,
- Probiotic supplements,
- If possible, apples, blueberries, cherries, other berries, and pears.
Reading food labels is an absolute must because many supermarket foods come with sugars and yeast in them.
Be sure also to stick to this diet even after the symptoms disappear. Because this not only boosts your immunity, but it also curbs the Candida albicans population boom by reintroducing friendly bacteria to your digestive system.
