The Western Diet is full of sugary and acidic foods so it’s no wonder so many people are suffering from Candida.

However, a rule of thumb would be to avoid sugary and acidic foods.

    Hi Bernie, Thanks and I’m so glad you found my site. I’ve probably answered most of your questions throughout my site. Start on the homepage as I tried to outline the most important articles there. Next visit the page http://www.candidafood.com/yeast-infection-treatment-questions/.

    Some canned products are fine, like black beans.. Just look for organic, no suger or salt added ones. Look for tuna that has been checked for mercury.

    Also, I recommend Linda Allen’s program because it takes you through step by step and she offers 1 on 1 email support.

    I wish you all the best and keep in touch. :-)

    I have been reading this site for 4 hours today and 3 last night. So many different topics and questions and trying to read all replies. I haven’t come across anything about avoiding swimming or sex. Where is that answered? Also I am starting Linda’s program now. Thank you. Can you fill me in on the swimming in a pool and or sea and sex please. One more thing Stevia is ok in a cup of coffee every once in awhile right? But is there ANY type of cream type milk like a soy or something? Thank you again!

    Hi Bernie, Yes there is a lot to go over. :-) Swimming I think depends on the water source. I had a friend who would always get a yeast infection when swimming in a particular lake but in the chlorinated pool or ocean, she was fine. Just try not to sit around in a wet bathing suit or find one that dries quickly. As for sex I had written some guidelines here. (#3) http://www.candidafood.com/5-steps-to-yeast-infection-treatment/ and I wrote about milk alternatives here. http://www.candidafood.com/milk-substitutes-and-the-yeast-infection-diet/ this will help you choose the right one. :-)

    I have been suffering with a very severe candida problem for over 20 yrs. It has affected me both physically and mentally (to learn about yeast related mental illness, read, “The Yeast Syndrome” by Dr. Trowbridge.) All the things on your “Do not eat” list are those that affect me. Except for glutenous grains. I have never had a problem with those. But what I want to comment on is that you say the safe foods get rid of candida. Although they do not feed candida, no foods get rid of the candida from your body. I was also surprised to see honey on the list of safe foods. Last, people should NEVER purchased yogurt that is made from a plant like (soy or coconut). Only yogurt fermented with lactose, which is only available in animal milk, will help you. The probiotic strains made by non-milk products are too weak. Also, not everyone with candida can tolerate yogurt. But most can tolerate Kefir if it is made from goat’s milk and it’s unsweetened. They sell this at Whole Foods.

    I think your list of foods to avoid is right on the mark. I have a problem with every single one of those foods. I also have a problem with all kinds of potatoes, except red skins. I read in The Body Ecology Diet that red skins were okay for people with candida to eat and after trying them I found (to my amazement) that they did not feed my yeast.

    I really like this site. You are helping so many people. Including me. I have had a severe candida problem for over 20 years (long story). However, I find that if I follow a healthy diet ~ consisting of whole natural plant foods, organic animal protein and fish, organic eggs, and small amounts of dairy products made from goat milk (like butter and kefir) and I ONLY eat desserts sweetened with Stevia and free of white flour,~I feel absolutely fine both mentally and physically. In addition to that I take a few nutritional supplements ( 3 ) and a probiotic called, Primal Defense Ultra, which I believe is the best probiotic on the market. Anyway, your site is inspiring me to stick to my diet and I’m getting some great recipes too. Thank you and may God bless all the work you’re doing to help others heal.

    Hi,

    Are peas allowed on the candida diet? What are the nutritional supplements that you would recommend?

    Thank you!
