Nutrition, Diet, Natural Treatments And Remedies For Yeast Infections

Many nutritious foods that provide good health unfortunately encourage growth of a fungus that causes yeast infections, known as candidiasis albicans (candida). If you get yeast infections or seem to get them often, you should reduce and better yet avoid the foods that feed candida. It is very important to recognize which foods in your diet can fight yeast infections.

What Foods In Your Diet Favor The Growth Of Yeast Infections?

Interesting enough, many of the good foods on the kitchen shelf are the ones to limit or avoid. Every person lives with a certain amount of the fungus (candida) candidiasis albicans in their body. This candida lives in the mouth, the skin, the intestines and the vagina. It usually lives in small, harmless colonies. Specific events and items, including some foods, can encourage these harmless candidiasis colonies to grow quickly. The overgrowths make the unpleasant and even harmful conditions that we call yeast infections.

Think about the foods that make up many of our lunch. Let’s say a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich, a glass of milk, and a red apple. A great number of people rely on a basic lunch like this every day. Each item in that lunch includes foods that can contribute to an overgrowth of candididias, and thus to a yeast infection. The example is not intended to discourage one from eating these good foods. Its purpose is to show how important it is to be knowledgeable about the foods and beverages that can favor the growth of candidiasis.

What Foods In Your Diet Can Encourage Yeast Overgrowth?

Candidiasis albicans is a fungus that usually thrives under the same conditions and environment that yeast does. Just as yeast grows in the presence of sugar, candidiasis flourishes when plenty of sugar is accessible. Honey, maple syrup, and sugar are the favorites of this common fungus. Fruits and fruit juices often contain large amounts of sugar. For these reasons, anyone on an anti-candida diet and using natural treatments should limit fruit or fruit juice.

Non-Sweet Sugary Foods In The Diet

There are some foods we wouldn’t normally think of as being sugary but do contain a form of sugar. The yeast in bread, for instance, relies on a form of sugar. Pizza has a sugary substance, because the flour contains a form of sugar. The toppings and sauce can contain sugar-based ingredients or a form of corn sweetener (high fructose corn syrup). You can detect sugar in a non-sweet food item by reading the package label. The package label tells how much sugar can be found in each serving.

Yeast Foods In The Diet

Beverages and foods that contain yeast or are made with the assistance of yeast are especially loved by candidiasis. This builds of big list of unwelcome foods. All the many food products that require fermentation, such as bean curd, cheese, yeast breads and vinegar are included. Beer, wine, and alcoholic drinks are important on this list.

Dairy Foods And The Anti-Candida Diet

A category of healthy foods in our diet that encourage the growth of candidiasis is dairy.  Dairy products are contaminated with mold. Specifically cheese and yogurt, because they are made by the process of fermentation, these foods should be eliminated when you are cleansing your body of candida over growth.

Dried Fruits And Peanuts In Your Diet

Most nuts are actually helpful on an antifungal (candidiasis) diet. It is only peanuts and their products that need to be avoided. It is, because most of the peanuts have an aflatoxin (mold) that grows on them. Fine for a healthy person but with candida it is best to avoid them.

What Foods In Our Diet And Natural Treatments Actually Discourage The Candidiasis Infection?

Garlic: Add it to you diet.

Garlic is our best friend when fighting candida. People who have frequent yeast infections make a habit of eating one to three garlic cloves per day. Garlic therapeutic actions work very effectively against candidiasis.

Vegetables: Consume more in your diet

Fresh vegetables are another great standby when building an anti-candida diet and natural treatment approach. Orange and yellow vegetables are excellent at boosting the immune system. The only food that you may want to avoid on an anti-candida diet is mushrooms.

Fatty Acids: Sardines and salmon make great additions to your diet.

Foods that have essential fatty acids are beneficial in preventing and treating yeast infections, for example, flaxseed and fatty fish.

Herbs

Certain herbs discourage an overgrowth of candidiasis. Pau d’Arco is generally not considered part of an anti-candida diet, but it can be made into a potent tea that assists in discouraging fungus/candidiasis. Echinacea is another herb that can boost the immune system and discourage yeast/candidiasis infections.

Do I Need To Take Vitamins Or Other Types of Food Supplements In My Diet?

Vitamins A, C, E, and zinc are known as immunity boosters. You should consult your holistic health care provider before starting any supplement program. Although Vitamin C is an immune system booster, it is in many fruits that also contain a lot of sugar. To avoid the sugar, you may want to consume a Vitamin C supplement in your diet.

“Friendly bacteria” known as probiotics are very beneficial in the prevention of yeast/candidiasis infections. Lactobacillis acidophilus probiotic, breaks down milk sugars into byproducts that inhibit the growth of unwanted organisms. Lactobacillis acidophilus is found mainly in foods that are not recommended on a diet against yeast/candida infections: milk products and the soy food miso, which is made through a process of fermentation. In order to reap the benefits of probiotics without consuming milk or fermented products, you may choose to use a prepared probiotic product such as those found in health food stores. Consult your holistic health care provider to help you decide  the best course of action for your own health.

Can Food Choices Be Affected By Antibiotics?

Most antibiotics kill the beneficial bacteria that live in the intestine. Since these beneficial bacteria are part of our immune system, removing them will automatically drop a person’s immunity. For that reason, some holistic health care providers encourage their clients on antibiotics to include yogurt or a probiotic supplement containing acidophilus to prevent the onset of a yeast infection.
