Anti-Yeast Diet

Many of you are working to eliminate yeast from your body (or at least to eliminate the symptoms caused by yeast).  It can be quite a process!  I would like you to know that success is possible.

First we want to kill yeast, using natural therapies.  Then we need to restore the healthy bacteria in your digestive tract so that yeast are no longer welcome to grow there.  We can do both these things at the same time, and if you experience vaginal symptoms, we'll address yeast there too.  

While on products to get rid of yeast and reestablish healthy bacteria, it can help to avoid foods that yeast love.  That means anything that looks like, sounds like, or is basically sugar (or broken down into sugar).  

Avoid fruit juices
Avoid sugar and anything that contains sugar (sugar on the label)
Avoid corn syrup, fructose, lactose, maltose, and any other ingredient that ends with "ose"
Avoid fruits with a high glycemic index (banana, papaya, melon, kiwi and dried fruit)
(it can be helpful to avoid all fruit for a month to start)
Avoid vinegar
Avoid alcohol
Avoid fermented foods

Minimize carbohydrates in general: 1 small serving, 1 to 2 times per day
(brown rice, quinoa, corn, potato, millet, or other gluten free grains)

Keep your blood sugar balanced and prevent carb cravings:
Eat every 3 to 4 hours
Include protein and healthy fats every time you eat

Here is a website that has developed a Candida Diet that I think can be helpful for you: http://www.wholeapproach.com/diet/foodlist.php

You can do it!  And it will be SO worth it.  Let me know how I can support you.
