Embarking on a Candida Cleanse Diet

Embarking on a Candida Cleanse Diet

Worldwide, candida infections, commonly known as yeast infections, are the fourth most common infection among women.

If you have excess candida in your system, you may be experiencing some or all of these symptoms: brain fog, sugar and chocolate cravings, tongue coating, frequent skin problems, fatigue. To encourage the growth of good micro-organisms, candida cleansing is necessary in order to flush out the bad yeast that has developed. The most effective way to flush candida from your body is through your diet.


However, the most effective way to cleanse yourself of candida is to first perform a colon cleanse. By doing this, you will be ridding your body of toxins and wastes that have accumulated and cleansing your digestive tract and organs. A candida cleanse will be much more effective if done following a colon cleanse.


The colon cleanse that you choose to perform can be one that you find in a health food store or a recipe that you prepare at home. When purchasing a packaged product, be certain to read the labels and settle on a product that is natural and free of additives and chemical preservatives.


Once the colon cleanse is completed, it is important to follow a candida cleanse diet. To accomplish this, avoid the foods that are listed below. Some of these offenders can be reintroduced at the completion of the cleanse, but others should be eliminated permanently as they promote candida growth.


  • mushrooms and fungus - these can be consumed in moderation once the cleanse is complete
  • all types of vinegar - these too can and should be reintroduced at the conclusion of the cleanse
  • processed meats like sausage, pastrami, lunch meats, corned beef, hot dogs, bacon and ham - these should be avoided during the cleanse and eliminated for good as they contain high levels of nitrates
  • processed white flour and all sugar (even fruit) - after the cleanse, reintroduce fruits but continue to avoid white flour and refined sugars
  • peanuts and products containing peanuts
  • alcoholic beverages

As you avoid these foods, consume raw vegetables, organic eggs, sauerkraut, whole grains and unsweetened kefir. Twice a day, drink a half of a cup of freshly squeezed organic lemon juice.


To replace the good bacteria in your system, it is important to add a probiotic supplement to your diet. Certain probiotics can be found in yogurt, but it is not easy to find a brand that is free of fruit and sugar.


At the completion of your colon and candida cleanse, you will feel renewed. You will have flushed toxins, wastes and candida from your body. Your energy level should increase and the pesky symptoms you were experiencing should disappear.
