Candida Cleanse: 3 Facts That I Think You Should Know When Doing A Yeast Cleanse

Updated on November 5, 2009

Candida Cleanse or Yeast Cleanse

If you are looking for information about candida cleanse or yeast cleanse, and are truly in need of finding a natural cure for your yeast infection, you may have come across lots of confusing and conflictingadvice. To make sense of the issue you need to have some basic information about candida and ways to control candida symptoms with proper diet. The following are some basic facts  - that many people are not aware of - about yeast, candida, and other microbal cultures.

Cadida is Everywhere, and it's impossible to eliminate it

1. Microbial cultures, such as candida, are everywhere so it's not possible to "cleanse," "starve to death" or "eliminate" them out of your body completely. Microbes are essential to life's processes, including digestion and immunity. They will be there no matter what you do.

2. Yeast feeds on sugar, and there will ALWAYS be sugar (glucose) in the blood, so there is always food for candida. Candida is a microorganism that naturally occurs in human body and feeds on sugar. There is no "candida cleansing diet" that can get rid of sugar from your blood, simply because even if we don't consume any sugar, the body will convert other foods into sugar, because our bodies REQUIRE sugar to produce energy.

The question is whether or not you have excess sugar in your blood for prolonged periods of time. In a healthy person eating a healthy diet, blood glucose rises after meals and then returns to normal levels when digestion is complete. If your blood glucose levels are normal, the amount of yeast in your blood stream will be at normal level too (excess yeast will die off once the sugar is metabolized and returns to normal).

3. Candida overgrowth happens when we have excess FAT in the blood.When we consume too much fatty foods - oils, margarine, butter, diary, meats; and also the "healthy fats" such as nuts, seeds, flax seeds or avocados - the fat in your blood stream interferes with the absorption of sugar. This results in high blood sugar levels for extended periods of time. And if your blood glucose levels are elevated above normal (which - by the way is a symptom of pre-diabetes or diabetes), candida in your blood will proliferate. Actually, candida acts as a back-up system, helping your body to bring the sugar level back to normal.

So the thing you need to understand - that most people aren't even aware of - that problems with candida are NOT directly caused by consuming excess sugar, but excess FAT. Eliminating sugar from your diet is not the answer, because carbohydrate, fat, and proteins is converted into sugar (glucose) that the body needs for fuel. You need to drastically reduce the consumption of fats and eat a healthy diet, to get your yeast problem under control.

"In the presence of too much fat in the blood, even a small amount of sugar, from any source, can result in abnormally high blood-sugar levels. Because all carbohydrate, fat, and protein we eat is converted to simple sugar (glucose) if it is to be used by the cells for fuel, the way out of this cycle is not to eat less sugar, but to consume less fat." Source: "The 80/10/10 Diet" by Dr. D. Graham.

Frequent outbreaks of candida can be your wake up call - a warning that you have pre-diabetes and are developing diabetes. What you need to do is to drastically curtail your fat consumption and follow anti candida diet, or face severe health consequences.
