There are different types of yeast that stay in our body. While most of these microorganisms are good for the body, one type poses a threat to the well-being of a person once there is an imbalance of its growth within the body. This yeast, known as Candida albicans, usually lives in human mouth, throat, intestines, and genital or urinary tract. An imbalance of the growth of this type of yeast can lead to Candidiasis, a condition where the imbalance affects many organisms of the body and causes various infections such as vaginitis, vulvar rash, oral thrush, conjunctivitis, kidney and bladder infections, and many more .
For people who have Candidiasis, one of the best remedies that are recommended is to alter the diet. A yeast-free diet must be followed since this helps lessen or minimize the Candida yeast in the body.
There are many recipes for Candida diets that you can make use of in your Candida diet endeavor. These recipes may be different from each other but all of them are sure to contain foods that hinder the growth of candida yeast. Foods that should not be present in the recipe for your Candida diet may include: aged cheeses, alcohol, chocolate, dried fruits, fresh fruits, fermented foods, mushrooms, vinegar, glutenous foods (wheat, rye, oats, barley), all sugars , honeys and syrups (that includes any 'ose', like lactose, sucrose etc), and foods that contain yeast or mold (breads, muffins, cakes, baked goods, cheese, dried fruits, melons, peanuts – although nutritional and brewer's yeasts are not harmful, as they do not colonize in the intestines).
On the other hand, for an effective recipe for your Candida diet, the following foods may be included: vegetables (including plenty of raw garlic), protein foods (beef, chicken, eggs, fish), live yogurt cultures (both dairy and non -dairy), whey, acidophilus, green algae (such as spirulina and chlorella), nuts, seeds and oils, and non-glutenous grains (like millet, rice, rice bran and oat bran).
