Foods to Eat to Cure a Yeast Infection



Foods to eat for a yeast infection include many different types of green foods.

All green foods have the quality of being natural treatment for yeast infections and natural appetite suppressants, are rich in beta-carotene and other carotenoids, have a high bioavailability (easily digested and absorbed compared to synthetic vitamins and minerals), and have strong antioxidant properties. Some of the many beneficial effects of green foods include higher energy, greater physical stamina, improved digestion and elimination, allergy relief, and immune system boosting. All these green foods are compatible with each other and with all the other supplements on this list.

Kelp, dulse, bladderwrack, and other seaweeds are an exceptionally good anti-fungal whole Candida food. They are natural treatment yeast infection because they are rich in iodine and selenium, minerals known for their ability to inactivate fungi.

Seaweeds are foods to eat for a yeast infection because they are high in sodium alginate, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, sodium, potassium, sulfur, and vitamins C and B12. It is an alkaline-forming food that replenishes glands and nerves, particularly the thyroid. It is a good source of trace minerals and has traditionally been used in the complementary medical treatment of obesity, goiter, hypothyroidism, anemia, emaciation, impotence, nervousness, a weakened immune system, and hair loss.

Saw palmetto is a natural treatment yeast infection. It is also known as Serenoa sermlata, Serenoa repens, or Sagal serru-lata, may be an important remedy for men with prostatitis associated with Candidal infection. It works as a diuretic, nerve sedative, expectorant, general nutritive tonic, urinary antiseptic, gastrointestinal stimulant, muscle builder, and circulatory stimulant. Saw palmetto has traditionally been used in the complementary medical treatment of prostate conditions (benign prostatic hypertrophy, prostatitis), enuresis (bed wetting), stress incontinence, infections of the genitourinary tract, and muscle wasting diseases of any kind.

Other whole Candida food concentrates may include aloe vera, beet root powder, cloves, onions, garlic, golden seal, and pau d’arco.

Honey, maple syrup, fruit concentrate, fruit juice, sweet fruits, and sugar: No sweeteners are recommended for any Candida food treatment diet, and sugar and artificial sweeteners are the worst offenders. A large percentage of people are allergic to sugar, and for the yeast it is their “sweetener of choice.” There is growing evidence of brain tumors, thinking difficulties, and multiple side effects from artificial sweeteners, especially aspartame. So they are definitely not foods to eat for a yeast infection.
