Soy Yogurt for Chronic Yeast Infections?

5th September 2014

soy yogurt chronic yeast infectionsWhen my chronic yeast infection problem began my doctor advised that I eat yogurt daily.

I am vegan and she advised that as long as it had live active cultures soy yogurt is fine. After reading the mass of information available online, I’m still confused…

Should I be eating any soy products? Is my soy yogurt breakfast helping or hurting me?

Soy products can be used as part of a chronic yeast infection eliminating diet, but a few precautions should be followed.

Many soy products have added sugar so be on the lookout for that. Also, be aware of how the product is processed. If it has a lot of additives and preservatives, then it’s probably not a good idea.

As far as probiotics is concerned, a better product for vegans would be coconut kefir. Kefir has cultures that actually colonize in the human body, while soy yogurt cultures don’t.

Also, coconut products have natural anti-fungal properties as well. You can buy coconut kefir from health food stores or make your own cheaply by buying a starter culture and then just keep it going indefinitely by adding new coconut milk to the existing culture and allowing it to culture the new milk.

I think replacing soy yogurt with coconut kefir will allow for greater success in eliminating chronic yeast infections naturally.
