Preventing Yeast Infections Naturally Through Diet
By John Cielo
Prevention is always better than cure. Just by sticking to some simple dietary rules you can help to prevent yeast infections naturally. Here you’ll learn which foods to avoid and which you can eat as part of your yeast infection diet. Plus, you’ll also get the facts on other issues that you need to address to prevent infections.
To understand how you can prevent yeast infections naturally through diet, you need to know what causes yeast infections, or Candida, as they are also called…
The thing that causes the actual symptoms is a naturally occurring yeast-like fungus called Candida albicans. We all have this type of fungi in our bodies but they are usually kept in check by our friendly bacteria. When this healthy balance between the fungi and your good bacteria is upset then the Candida can ‘overgrow’ into a yeast infection.
One of the key triggers for this imbalance is high levels of sugar in the blood. This is because sugar feeds the fungi. Another key issue is your friendly bacteria becoming depleted. This can happen by the taking of antibiotics which can kill-off the good bacteria as well as the bad bacteria. But how does adjusting your diet affect these underlying issues?
Well, the sugar is obvious. So you need to avoid or to seriously reduce your sugar intake. And bear in mind that this includes things like artificial sweeteners, honey, jams, sweets, chocolates, etc., and most tinned fruits and foods. Another source of sugar are refined carbohydrates which eventually produce sugar as they break down in your digestive system. So avoid or reduce things like white flour and rice, pasta, refined breakfast cereals, corn-flour, etc.
Much farmed meat and poultry has added antibiotics and other additives that can aid Candida growth. So it’s best to change to organic meat, poultry, eggs, fruit, vegetables and fish. This includes everyday dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, milk, etc. So eat only organic dairy produce; soya milk, almond milk, oat milk, soya-based cheeses, and natural yogurt. Unsweetened natural yogurt with active cultures is especially good. These cultures are actually beneficial bacteria and can help replenish the good bacteria in your gut.
This is just a short ‘snapshop’ of one particular facet of preventing yeast infections naturally; diet. But there are other key issues for you to consider because other triggers, or root causes, of infections are hormonal imbalance, some drugs and a lowered immune system. You need to get to know these things, and act on them, to have the very best chance of preventing Candida…
