Six Steps To “Candida Control!”
Candida albicans is an organism that can mutate – like all bacteria and viruses – and it can live in every part of the body.
This is called morphogenesis, and dimorphism is the state of existing in two forms, as Candida does. Moreover, these two kinds of fungal dimorphism have widely differing effects in the human body.
It isn’t possible to eliminate Candida completely, and indeed it’s not necessary or desirable to do so, because it’s actually one of the organisms your body needs – in balance – to stay healthy.
The object of Yeast Infection No More is to help you create an environment in which it can’t overgrow and do the harm that is possible when it eliminates the good bacteria in your body (aka probiotics).
The six dietary principles of the Candida Control Diet are as follows:
- eliminating processed food
- reducing or eliminating refined carbohydrates
- consuming natural foods that support a well-balanced immune and hormonal system
- eating a lot of raw food
- avoiding anything that you may be allergic to or suspect you are allergic to
- eating the foods that will ensure that the acid alkaline balance of your body remains correct and ensuring that your digestion works properly, which is partly a product of eating the right things, but also has a great deal to do with how you eat them.
Once again Linda Allen goes into full detail about this, so I’m not going to list every single aspect of this part of the program, but I’ll give you one example.
We know that antibiotics can eliminate the good bacteria in your gut, the probiotics necessary to your body’s health. That’s one of the reasons why antibiotics often lead to infection with Candida.
What you may not know is that dairy products and indeed a lot of meat that’s been raised intensively also contains antibiotics (they are – legally and illegally – are used as growth promoters).
Regrettably it’s also true that dairy products can be loaded with hormones injected into cows in order to increase their milk-yield.
The fact is that when you’re consuming milk and many meat products that contain antibiotics and hormones, you’re constantly taking into your body more and more substances which eliminate the good bacteria and allow yeast like Candida to flourish.
Clearly you have to change this if you want to eliminate yeast infection from your body.
That doesn’t mean a dramatic and complete change of diet. What it means is being more selective about where you buy your produce, and how much of it you consume.
It follows that if you buy milk and meat from sources that are known to be pure (i.e. antibiotic and hormone free) then you’re eliminating immediately one of the substances that allows Candida infection to flourish in your body.
Another example is the amount of sugar that we consume in the Western world.
As human beings we are genetically engineered to look for sugar: it’s a high energy fix that would have been vital to our ancestors.
Unfortunately, for us, the majority of the sugar we consume does not come as complex carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables, or perhaps even raw honey, it comes out of a packet from the supermarket in its most concentrated form — pure sucrose.
Here’s what the author of Yeast Infection No More has to say about it: “Sugar is one of Candida’s favorite foods. Processed sugar is sugar cane is being stripped of its essential fiber and nutrients. White processed sugar is 100% chemical element… one which causes blood sugar levels to increase dramatically and quickly. The pancreas produces extra amounts of insulin to help the body metabolize the glucose in the sugar. This extra insulin quickly causes low blood sugar levels, which results in low energy and fatigue… with continued overconsumption of sugar this process can lead to diabetes. But that’s not all.
Whenever sugar is consumed, the body also produces other androgenic hormones to metabolize the glucose. These extra androgenic hormones stress the liver and create hormonal imbalance, which may lead to yeast infection. Furthermore the liver converts sugar into long chain fats that pollute your blood and may certainly aggravate yeast infection.
Sugar can also damage the immune system, produce an acidic stomach environment ideal for Candida, and cause food allergies (one of the symptoms of allergies is yeast infection), increase the size of the liver and disrupt it from filtering toxins and used hormones, and encourage the development of bacteria in the colon.
This means more stress on the organs of elimination, more toxins and more yeast infection. I urge you to remember this: stay away from white sugar and eliminate it entirely from your diet even if you don’t have a yeast infection.”
Maybe the simplest home remedy for yeast infection is to change your diet!
Now on the face of it this may seem like a very harsh piece of advice, and if you’re fond of sugar, one that’s going to be quite difficult to follow.
Fortunately, one of the really helpful things Yeast Infection No More reviews is the wide range of foods you can eat that are actually more satisfying and enjoyable than those which can contribute to Candida.
In every case where certain foods encourage the development of Candida infection your body, Linda Allen recommends suitable alternatives. In this section, she also includes information on the possible effects of eating
- refined white flour and processed cereal grains
- hydrogenated and partly hydrogenated fats and oils
- red and fatty meats
- egg whites
- yeasty foods
- red wine and beer
- processed foods
- pressure treated and heat treated foods
- other forms of alcohol
- and additional information on many more subjects.
This information couldn’t possibly be more comprehensive. And she reviews it clearly and simply, so that you understand exactly what the possible consequences of ingesting certain types of food might be.
She offers extra suggestions about how you can give up these foods really easily, as well as describing delicious alternatives which are both healthy and appealing.
But of course eating well and creating a bodily environment which does not sustain Candida isn’t just about avoiding, reducing or eliminating certain foods, it’s also about increasing the intake of foods which can be helpful to the body.
The Yeast Infection No More dietary advice contains information on what you should be eating: including the type and amount of each sort of foodstuff that you need for good health.
This is practical information that is easy to follow, and it’s vital information if you have a yeast infection you want to cure. These home remedies for yeast infection can do that for you, as part of a holistic cure.
If you are accustomed to consuming certain types of food and drink – fast food or junk food and alcohol for example – then reducing or eliminating these things from your diet means you can get rid of the Candida infection and also substitute delicious foods for the harmful ones.
The decision to do nothing means keeping the Candida infection and all its symptoms and continuing to consume the foods you enjoy but which may not be good for you.
It’s not a hard choice to decide to employ these home remedies, which have immense power against yeast infections!
As I review the program, I see that the author takes great pains to help people understand what they can do to make the transition to a different way of eating much easier and simpler.
I haven’t seen any other website describing these choices in a better fashion.
You can change your diet without too much trouble using these ideas, but of course you may need support.
And the great thing is that there’s an e-mail support system which will answer all your questions within 24 hours. I checked this out myself, and I know it works.
This supplementary information is yet another invaluable aspect of this program, an extra way in which it’s actually made it easy for you to eat the foods that will eliminate Candida from your body.
Step 2: Anti-Candida Foods
Very briefly, this part of the eBook of Yeast Infection No More describes what you should be eating, and the best form in which to take it.
Among other things, it describes the optimum daily level of fat consumption, and which fats you need to avoid, as well as which fruits, cereals, vegetables, beans, pulses and grains to eat.
You even get a whole load of delicious food supplements you can actually enjoy taking!
Once again, the author explains why these foods and supplements work the way they do and why they are so good in keeping Candida at bay. She also explains the many advantages there are for you if you take more of them.
Remember, as always, we must treat home remedies for yeast infection as seriously as we treat medical products. Allicin, as I mentioned in another post, acts in synchrony with anti-fungal agents to enhance the action of the latter. It’s not a home remedy in its own right, but it is a powerful anti-yeast substance.
The list of foodstuffs – good and bad – that have an impact on Candida is so thoughtfully laid out and so complete.
This proves three things to me: how much effort has gone into producing this, how much time has been taken to ensure the program is well-written, and how much time has been taken to find many pieces of information drawn from all over the place.
