The recommended diet for a person suffering with Candidiasis is not difficult to understand or follow if you do what I did. I will explain in this article some of the conditions you may be suffering with and give you dietary solutions. I want you to get well fast!
First you must understand more of what is going on inside of your body. I am going to tell you what the yeast is doing to you and what you can do to get around that and succeed on this diet.
Yeast will trigger sugar cravings so intense that you think you will die without something sugary.
If you tried this all on your own strength, yes you would fall off of your healing diet. You need to have something to replace what you crave. I recommend Stevia,without fillers is best. I like the KAL brand because it is very good and concentrated. I buy one bottle (3.5oz.)and it lasts my family all year, in coffee and tea and such, and I have a large family who loves their coffee and tea. Stevia is 10x sweeter than sugar. So, a little goes a very long way. ½ tsp is = to 1 cup of sugar in sweetness. You can get cookbooks that only use this calorie free sweetener. That should make you smile! :)
Stevia is on sale right now too!
Not only will you get rid of that yeast that is killing you, but you also will lose weight naturally.
Yeast causes you to have belly bloat.
This can be so bad you think you gained 20 lbs in a day. At one point, I was swelling all over my body as a result of yeast overgrowth. I couldn’t cross my legs (although that is very bad for your back and circulation). I just plain felt bad. Even my fingers would swell making it hard to do things.
If you will follow the tips I give you in this article you can begin to heal. There is a wealth of information I will ultimately give you, but one step at a time. You did not get this sick overnight nor can you get well that fast either but you may feel a miracle has happened once you quit feeding that yeast!
Yeast will ultimately hinder your thyroid.
Do you already suffer from thyroid problems? You cannot effectively convert food into fat, then into energy if yeast is hindering your thyroid and it will, so don’t ignore your symptoms.
Here is what is happening inside of your body. The immune system is working overtime to try and kill the excessive yeast that you have, but it cannot keep up( you end up with a damaged immune system, and or thyroid, but not to fear you can heal). The result of this battle between your immune system and the yeast ultimately results in the production of inflammatory compounds that suppress thyroid function. You will be overweight, swollen and miserable.
Yeast causes brain fog.
You will most definitely have problems with concentration if you have an overgrowth of yeast. It may not be all the time but when you are having the most problems, your memory will have a hard time being good. You may forget where you left your keys, or walk into a room with some intention but you forget what it was.
These symptoms will go away rather quickly once you really start putting the whammy on yeast!
Yeast can make men into bears, and women into PMS monsters!
The overgrowth of yeast will undoubtedly make you very very grouchy no matter what your sex happens to be. I remember my very young daughter saying to me everyday while I was at my worst with Candidiasis, ” Don’t be miserable mommy”. I can still hear her words today and it makes me cry to think of how she had to have a mom who was so miserable that she wanted to gripe, and be grouchy all the time. She would melt my heart with that and I would try oh so hard to stuff the monster back inside.
It is not fun, it is a sickness you can cure, but you must take action.
Yeast can give you infections of many types affecting men and women.
If you have an overgrowth of yeast you can have a variety of illnesses and chronic. You will probably suffer from bladder infections. Women may suffer from the more common Vaginal yeast infection. Then there is athletes foot, dandruff, chronic congestion or sinusitis, acne, dry itchy skin, digestive woes such as heartburn, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. You may also suffer from migraines.
If you suffer from constant bladder infections you must know a few things about what is going on. Firstly you must understand, it is not bacterial, but fungal. If your doctor has you on antibiotics, be sure they did a test to know for sure that it was bacterial. If not, ask for a test. If you have a doctor who just doesn’t know or understand about Yeast overgrowth(Candidiasis), you owe it to yourself to find one who does. You will continue to fight a war of lacking of knowledge by the doctor and your health.
I spent 6 months on antibiotics. My doctor finally said lets try a medication for fungus. I began getting well and was told we cannot give it to you anymore. They only want us to give it out for 1 week, and we have allowed you to have 4 weeks worth. Well, a chronically ill person who has yeast everywhere, that was not a good answer for me. I left the doctor in despair and never went back. I began finding out by researching this myself and began healing myself.
I said all of that to say this, if you are on antibiotics and it is not a bacterial infection, you are helping the yeast to grow. You are killing all of their competition. It seems the good bacteria dies rather easily, we have to work hard to keep their number high. Yeast on the other hand appears to be more resilient and multiplies rather quickly and over takes the food supply of the good bacteria making you left with only yeast and very, very sick.
The yeast are clinging to the walls of your bladder. They will dig in and eventually cover the exit. Making it very difficult to use the restroom. You must take action fast!
Here is what you do for a bladder infection. I learned this from a friend who had his doctor give him this recipe.
1- 8 oz. glass of non sweetened cranberry juice( I like Northland the best, it seems to be the best formula for this problem), 3 times a day for 2 weeks(once at bedtime, to keep the numbers down)
1-8 oz. Glass of the same juice 2 times a day for 1 week.
1-8 oz. Glass of the same juice at bedtime for the rest of your life. This will prevent you from ever having a full blown infection again.
From experience, I was so sick with fever, kidneys hurting to the point I almost could not stand up. 6 months of antibiotics almost killed me but did nothing for the bladder infection. I started the cranberry juice regimen and in 2 days I was pain free. Do not skimp and use the one with sugars in it. You will only feed the yeast.
Yeast causes Vaginal yeast infections.
Every woman has probably had some sort of either bacteria( it is natural to have it )overgrowth or yeast overgrowth(again yeast is natural just not in over abundance).
I found that Boric Acid cures them all and fast. Sometimes it only takes one treatment and you are over it. So it won’t matter what kind of imbalance you have, you can cure it fast.
Here is a good product that is easy to use and works fast. Yeast Arrest homeopathic formula. It is made by Vitanica. This is what I recommend. If you are into doing things yourself you can buy boric acid and buy the 500 milligram capsules and make your own. Insert as a suppository. This product (yeast arrest)has other ingredients and is made like a smooth suppository. It is nice.
Ok, I hear you grumbling, men, get over it, women, you need to know these things and no… Boric Acid is not an acid. It just has that silly name attached to It. It is not hot, or strong or dangerous. It is not to be eaten however, just used for the vaginal types of imbalances.
Never again let popular culture make you feel an imbalance is anything but just that. It is not some dirty word to have an infection of this type.
Yeast causes skin conditions like athletes foot and dandruff or just dry skin.
Use tea tree oil to treat these types of conditions. This is a natural oil and anti fungal. For dandruff just put some on your fingertips and message into your scalp.
Things to remember:
You must avoid sugar
You must drink cranberry juice
Use natural means to heal yourself when possible such as Boric Acid and Tea Tree Oil.(be kind to the good bacteria, it gets killed easily with medications or antibiotics and poor diet)
I hope this article was helpful to you. I plan to discuss diet in more detail in my next articles and give some recipes soon also so you can get well fast.
These symptoms are only a drop in the bucket when it comes to Candidiasis. I will give you more information in each article as well. See you next time, healthier than you are today!
15+ years experience with the condition personally,of which over the past 5 years-have found healing. You can too! Atlanta
