Get Rid Of Yeast Infection

Posted by Leannedros on Aug 30, 2011 3:27:05 PM

If you believe that yeast infection is something that you only  get from direct contact with someone that has it, then think again.  There are a number of possible causes of yeast infection. Among the  possibilities include using oral contraceptive pills, taking oral  steroids, about to get your period, being a diabetic, use of  applications like soap, douche, hygiene products, and wearing tight,  damp, and/or warm clothing. There are a number of solutions to treat the  infection. But unknown to some, having the correct diet to treat yeast  infection is also as important.


Detoxing, that would be the more appropriate term when it comes to a  yeast infection diet. Yeast infection is a direct result of an  overgrowth in some areas of a natural occurring microorganism, or  Candida albicans as it is known in the scientific community. There may  be some variations in the suggested diet but most often than not, with a  strict adherence to the regimen, it is possible to encounter some  relief from the infection in as early as three weeks.

One of the basic necessities in diet programs is drinking adequate  amounts of water. Water is an important aspect of detoxing. It helps  flush out the toxins inside the body. It has been also suggested that  fresh fruit juices and even green tea be added to the liquid intake. But  emphasis is given to drinking at least eight glasses of water per day.


It is also important to eat food that is fresh. It would be best to  void processed and highly fatty foods, not only for your yeast infection  but for your general health as well. Don’t overcook your food as well.  Foods have a tendency to loose much of its nutrients when heat is  applied so be sure to cook your food just right. Steamed and sautéed  would be the ideal cooking preparations. Vegetables don’t need cooking,  just make it a salad and you’re ready to go. However, we do suggest that  you avoid eating sweet vegetables like carrots, corn, potatoes, onions,  and sweet potatoes.

Eat a lot of garlic. Garlic contains antibacterial properties which  help in eliminating the overgrowth of yeast. Be generous with your fresh  greens and limit your intake of meat. Fish, beef, lamb, poultry and  eggs are okay in moderation. It has been suggested that an ideal serving  of meat should be no larger than half the size of your palm. Adding  more to this portion would be too asking to your digestive organs.

Sometimes there are other foods that you would like to include in  your diet. Eating the foods you like will not affect much your diet as  long as you eat them in moderation and in relatively small portions.  Yogurt is something that you could add as well as small servings of  brown rice or buckwheat.

For condiments, sea salt is okay as well as pure virgin olive oil. In  fact, you can be liberal with the use of olive oil. Fresh ginger can be  a good condiment for your yeast problem as well. Plus you can use it in  a number of dishes like salads, tofu, meat dishes, and soups. Not only  does it contain properties that might help treat the infection, but it  is generally good for your digestion as well.


A good diet to treat yeast infection is a necessary step in the  general treatment of the infection. You must learn to be healthy when it  comes to your hygiene and the food you eat.
