It would never occur to most of us that we have yeast over growing in our bodies. Yeast lives with in the human body and should not cause problems but it can become invasive and wreak havoc through out our body. This post is a follow-up from May 21st. Please refer to the earlier post for symptoms of Candida Albicans (fungus). Yeast produces toxic chemicals that are absorbed into the body.
Do you feel lousy but can’t get a diagnosis? Are you tired all the time? Frequent headaches? Depression? Constipation?
How do we treat Candida? Sugar is the primary nourishment for yeast. You can imagine with the amount of sugar that we consume that yeast could very well be a problem for most of us. Some foods that contain sugar or break down into sugar are:
Soft Drinks and Ades
The only way to get a hold of the yeast growth which can literally attack all areas of your body is to starve the yeast.
Maintaining a diet of veggies, protein and fruit that is not high in sugar (lemons, grapefruit, tart apples, berries) is the best thing.
Stay away from foods that might have mold: vinegar, peanuts, melons, dried fruit.
Avoid coffee. Avoid alcohol. And any other beverage that is acidic, high in sugar, or turns to sugar in the body.
Avoid milk products (except yogurt). They are high in lactose.
Take probiotics by eating plain yogurt or take supplements to fight the fungi.
Do an intestinal cleanse.
Take Vitamin B Complex.
There is a load of material online for your “enjoyment”.
Every symptom I had (chronic fatigue, daily headaches, constipation, abdominal issues, brain fog, sinus pain, acne, bouts of depression) went away after I starved the yeast. There are many more symptoms than those I listed.
If I follow the above recommendations 90 percent of the time, I am good to go. And I have found it is well worth my time and energy to do so. I have more energy than I ever have. And I am older than I have ever been. How bout that.
