What You Should Eat If You Suffer From Allergies or Yeast Infections

Updated on March 20, 2015

Scientists and nutritionists have proven that major health problems such as cardiovascular diseases, allergies, celiac disease, diabetes, cancer, the widespread yeast infection mostly caused by candida albicans are related to dietary alterations. People of the modern time often experience the imbalances in the body caused by replacing novelty foods for traditional ones. The foods are radically altered: refined, heated, sweetened, colored, pressurized and chemically manipulated. Epidemic proportions of the yeast infection candida albicans motivated nutritionists all over the world to elaborate yeast-free cookbooks and lists of foods one can and can't eat or take to the grocery stores. Candida albicans yeast infection is considered to be closely related to celiac disease, diabetes and psoriasis.

Short list of possible causes of candida albicans yeast infection:

  • repeated exposures to antibiotics
  • use of oral contraceptives among women, steroids, chemical therapies, alcohol etc.
  • increased consumption of refined flours and sugar i.e. reduced consumption of whole grains and potatoes or other complex carbohydrates

Manifestation of the imbalance in the body due to candida albicans:

  • problems with the gastrointestinal tract: indigestion, food cravings, food allergies, celiac disease, diabetes, psoriasis.
  • problems with the central nervous system: numbness, tingling.
  • impaired circulatory system: cold hands and feet.
  • emotional changes: depression, premenstrual tension, loss of libido
  • malfunction of hormones: acne, dry skin, menstrual disturbances even miscarriage.
  • neurodermitis, urticaria.

The basis for all antifungal diets is avoiding all foods containing table sugar and refined forms of sucrose, glucose and fructose. Moreover, fruit, honey, molasses, maple syrup and all alcoholic beverages also contain sugar and they are to be avoided. We must add milk products (for example, cheese) as they contain milk sugar (lactose). Also, high-carbohydrate grains, especially those containing gluten.
