What You Should Know About Candida Diet Recipes

We wish our readers a very happy Christmas and holiday season, and a peaceful – and healthy – 2008.

So, you are searching for a candida diet recipe?  But hold on for a moment.  Are you sure you know what should and should not be included in the recipe?  What if the person who created the recipe did not understand what the recipe was for, and what health benefits it was supposed to bring about?

What if the person included foods that actually feed the candida overgrowth rather than reduced it?  Do you want to take that chance?

Well, if not then this article should help.  It touches on the foods that a person should exclude from their diet if they are following an anti candida diet, and those foods that are generally safe to eat.  It also covers a brief explanation as to why this is the case, so you can be sure of getting the correct ingredients in the future.

Candida is a natural organism that lives in and on the body.  It lives in warm and moist spots, including the Gastrointestinal (GI) tract, the vagina, the oral cavity and the folds in our skin.

It is thought every person on earth has some candida yeast in the GI tract, and that it lives as part of the flora, and makes up one of the dozens of micro-organisms that inhabit the human body.

However, this yeast does have a darker side, and when allowed to overgrow, usually due to a weakened immune system or the levels of friendly bacteria in the gut are diminished or perhaps from eating a diet that is high in sugar, the candida can multiply quickly. 

This overgrowth can lead to many issues, ranging from mild stomach upset to severe medical problems if the infection becomes systemic.

It is worth saying now, that if you believe that you have a candida infection, then visit your doctor to get it diagnosed.  The symptoms of a candida overgrowth can be similar to many other conditions, and it is important that the treatment you get is specific to your condition.

So, where does a candida diet fit in, or more accurately an anti candida diet.  An anti candida diet has two main purposes I believe, which are to starve the candida and so suppress its growth, and to help promote a better immune response and GI flora.

This is achieved through restricting certain foods from the diet to ensure that the candida does not get “fed”, by reducing foods that are nutritionally weak and replacing them with foods that are nutritionally strong.

Here are some of the foods that need to be restricted from your diet :

Take out all sugar from the diet: including foods that contain sugar, like honey, syrup, molasses, lactose, maltose, white and brown sugar.  Remember candida is yeast so it metabolizes sugar.

Yeast and yeast products should also be removed from the diet, this includes the majority of bakery goods, marmite, gravy mix and many foods that contain flavorings like crisps/ potato chips.

Products that contain white flour or refined grain like biscuit, pasta, cakes and cereals.

Products that have been fermented to produce them like alcohol, vinegar, pickles, and soy sauce.

Avoid prepared or packaged meats, especially smoked or cured meats like kippers, gammon and bacon.

Avoid eating foods that contain fungi, or mould, including cheese and mushrooms.

The jury is out as to whether fruit should be excluded from the diet due to the fairly high sugar content.  Certainly canned, frozen, dried or squeezed juices are out.  However, whole fruit has many beneficial effects, so it is suggested that they start to be reintroduced after symptoms start to improve.

Although this list is not exhaustive, it can look daunting, seemingly leaving nothing left to eat.  However, there is also a long list of foods that can happily be included in your candida diet recipes.

    I just found out that I have Candida. I was told that if it is not taken care of soon - it could lead to Fibramyalgia. So I am on a 30 day cleanse with a detox inbetween.

    I found this site to be very helpful. I will bookmark it and come back for more.
