Candida Overgrowth Syndrome

Some changes in your eating habits are necessary to eliminate a Candida overgrowth. Candida thrives on sugar, so it is best to limit sugar from your daily fare.

Consume moderate amounts of whole grains and increase your intake of plant protein and other high-fiber foods, particularly vegetables because of their generally low sugar content.

Eat only small amounts of fruit because of their sugar content.

Add organic yogurt to your daily diet because it contains friendly bacteria, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. bifidus, which help to restore normal intestinal flora. When shopping, check labels to be sure the yogurt contains active or live cultures of acidophilus and choose brands with no refined sugar.

Finally, include garlic in your diet because this phytochemical-rich food is thought to both enhance immunity and reduce Candida counts in the body.

What You Should Eat & Why

Both Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. bifidus help to maintain a healthy balance of "friendly" bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract and vagina. They also produce substances that combat hostile microorganisms. Studies show that L. acidophilus may help prevent or slow the growth of vaginal yeast infections, replacing the natural acidophilus that antibiotics destroy. According to research, a daily serving (one cup) of yogurt with acidophilus can reduce the number of vaginal yeast infections a woman gets.
Leading Food Sources of acidophilus: Yogurt

fiber, insoluble
Consuming enough fiber (20 to 30 grams per day), along with plenty of water, promotes a regular, easy-to-pass, daily movement. This will help to eliminate the organisms and the toxins that the Candida yeast produces.
Leading Food Sources of fiber, insoluble: Figs, Rice, brown, Peas, fresh, Raisins & Currants, Beans, dried, Wheat, Prunes

Garlic serves the dual purpose of killing yeast and supporting the immune system. In test-tube studies, garlic has been shown to block the growth of C. albicans. Garlic is also effective against a variety of infectious organisms that damage and invade tissues.,560,00.html
