Attention Attention Candida Sufferer Eat These Foods

By  | 

In the article entitled “”Attention! Attention! Candida Sufferer Avoid These Foods”, in which we discussed foods that promote unhealthy Candida levels, we learnt that Candida starts to develop in the gut as a fungus and that it creates an environment that is ideal for its rampant growth.

We have learned that the environment in which Candida thrives is acidic in nature and this acidity inhibits the bodies ability to absorb vitamins and minerals and it limits enzyme production of digestive proteins. Limited enzyme production leads to symptoms of indigestion, e.g. wind or gas problems are evident, bloated or swollen intestines are evident, increased acid levels and sensitivities to certain types of foods are evident.

It is evident that in order to maintain a healthy body, free of an overgrowth of Candida, the foods that are eaten must be foods that promote healthy Candida levels in the body.

The ideal diet for those suffering from Candida Yeast overgrowth is to eat a diet high in fiber and protein complimented by some complex carbohydrates and a small amount of fresh fruits. For example, the daily intake should be approximately:

65% High fiber foods, such as steamed vegetables: The best choices are broccoli, celery, radishes, asparagus, onions, garlic, ginger root, cabbage, turnips and kale. Raw garlic and onions act as natural anti-fungal substances and should be eaten as much as possible.

20% High protein foods, such as: fish chicken, duck, nuts, seeds and eggs.

10% Complex carbohydrates: rice, beans and oats.
