Yeast Infection Home Remedy, Candida Diet with Grapefruit Seed

The easiest solution for any form of yeast infection is to target one’s diet, which in itself can be an effective yeast infection home remedy. Sugar and carbohydrates should be removed from the diet as soon as possible. This can be quite difficult as there is a phenomenon I have witnessed in my clinic, which I would describe as the “Yeast Mind.” For some individuals, sugar is an addiction, and giving up sweets can be very, very difficult. If this is the case, I would suggest seeking the advice of a qualified specialist as there are many aids along the path which can help reduce sugar cravings.

To help keep the blood sugar levels balanced I would recommend increasing the consumption of green leafy vegetables and protean. Digestive enzymes can play an important role in helping keep sugar cravings down especially when taken with well-rounded meals.

To these basic changes in diet I would also recommend adding in beneficial bacteria, often referred to as “Probiotics” to help balance the internal flora in your intestines. Often times simply adding in these bacteria alone can cause a chronic vaginal yeast infection to clear up in a matter of days. There are many forms of pro-biotics all of which can be found online and at your local health food store.

Candida Diet with Grapefruit Seed:

Beyond removing carbohydrates from the diet temporarily and removing simple sugars from the diet permanently, there are many other supplements that can be taken to help kill of an internal yeast infection. Of these, the best I have seen are Grapefruit Seed, Uva Ursi, Plant Tannins, Garlic, and a few other physician’s grade supplements that are only available through health care providers. Most of these supplements are available for over the counter purchase, however, I would suggest seeking a professional opinion if your initial direction does not give you the response you were looking for. Unfortunately, different types of Candida respond differently to different types of anti-fungals. Some Candida will be killed of with Grapefruit Seed Extract, while others will not respond. Fortunately Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratories offers a precise stool test kit that tests the exact type of Candida found in a stool sample for biological sensitivity to both natural substances and western anti-fungal drugs. Also, knowing the levels of Candida at the beginning of a healing journey can help judge the effectiveness of the therapy.
