Yeast Infection: Thrush (Candida)

Up to one in three people suffers from Yeast infection - repeating bouts of fungal infection like thrush or tinea or jock itch. Studies show that the cause of Yeast infection is an immune system under threat - usually because there is another undiagnosed food sensitivity present - like Gluten or Dairy intolerance.

Solving the underlying food intolerance not only stops the Yeast infections and strengthens immune system - but it also fosters better all-round health.

How common is Yeast infection (candida)?

Yeast infection is extremely common. Up to one in three or 35% of people have yeast infections at any time. It is usually a strong indication that you have another food intolerance - one of the the main intolerances.

Yeast (candida or other fungal) infections can appear as thrush (in babies and adults), as rashes and as tinea, jock itch and ringworm. Yeasts and other fungals are everywhere in the air we breathe and the foods we eat. 

Stop Recurring Candida Infections

When you are not eating right for your body - Yeast and other fungal infections come back again and again. But with a little careful attention to the foods you eat - you can stop the recurrences and be free of them permanently. A temporary Yeast-free diet is an essential part of the healing - but it is just the first step in a TWO STEP process.

Many people misunderstand what a Yeast-free diet means and simply cut out bread and other yeast-raised foods. However a Yeast-free diet needs a little more attention and gives great results.Yeast-Free Complete Guide in the Healing Program

What are the symptoms of Yeast infection (Candida)?

Yeast infection carries the widest spectrum of symptoms of any food sensitivity:

  • Skin problems like rashes and ringworm
  • Genital fungal infections like thrush (candida albicans)
  • Lethargy (extreme tiredness and lack of energy)
  • Halitosis - bad breath

Symptoms of each intolerance overlap - like Dairy, Gluten and Fructose. So be careful not to jump to conclusions. To differentiate among intolerances you need a Journal.

Comments: Candida - yeast infection - is known as the disease that makes you feel "sick all over".

How is Yeast infection (candida) identified?

Although clinical testing is available it is generally inconclusive. Types of testing include blood tests and tissue swabs among others.

However - the most useful indicator that you have Yeast infection is your history of yeast infections: vaginal, ear or throat infections, jock itch, tinea, ringworm or other fungal infection.

Comments: Yeast (fungal) infections flourish when your immune system is under stress. This can be caused by a course of anti-biotics, or an illness. However - one source of immune system stress that is frequently overlooked is another underlying food intolerance like Dairy, Fructose or Gluten intolerance.

Whatever the cause - a Yeast-free diet is an essential first step in your healing.

Why do I get recurring Yeast (candida infections)?

The repeated appearances of candida, tinea or other fungal infection usually indicate a compromised immune system. Anything that weakens the immune system can trigger a yeast infection: repeated courses of antibiotics or hormonal changes. . . but read on:

Another underlying food intolerance stresses the immune system

However the most likely cause of recurring yeast infections is another underlying food intolerance like Gluten intolerance, or Fructose Malabsorption or Dairy intolerance.

While your body battles one or more of these intolerances - your immune defences are impaired. So you have lower resistance to all kinds of infections: bacterial, viral and fungal (yeast). If you suffer from regular infections of any type - you probably have untreated food intolerance. The way to get well permanently is to find out your food intolerance using the Journal Method - and a good Yeast-Free Guide - as in the Healing Program.

How is candida treated?

healingprogramTwo Vital Steps be rid of Yeast infections

The most effective way to be free of recurring Yeast infections permanently is:

STEP ONE: Get rid of the Yeast infection: A prescription anti-fungal medication from your doctor - along with a Yeast-free diet for 2 - 3 weeks (no longer)

STEP TWO: Find out your other underlying food intolerance (Journal Method ) so you will never get candida infections again! 


The Power of a Journal to find Your Food Intolerance

A journal puts system into your exploration. It's easy. All you do is track your symptoms as you switch a few foods. We recommend the purpose-designed Detection Diet Journal in  the Healing Program.

You'll also need food substitution guides so you can enjoy a wide variety of great foods. The full series of six Complete Guides (to Gluten-free, Fructose-Free etc. ) is included in the Healing Program.


When will I be cured from recurring Yeast infections (candida)?

Using a Yeast-Free Diet and a prescription anti-fungal from your doctor - you should be free of the yeast overgrowth within a week or two. That is STEP ONE achieved.

STEP TWO is to find out your other underlying food intolerance - the one that causes the repeat performances of candida!

Everything you need is in the Healing Program

Remember - a Yeast-free diet is always a temporary measure until your body recovers. Once the candida overgrowth is under control you can start the investigation of your other food intolerance. The trickiest thing about a yeast-free diet is knowing about 'hidden' yeast in foods and drinks. You need to 'starve' the yeast organism so it can no longer flourish in your body.


Yeast Infections and Your Immune System

The Candida yeast organism is normally kept in check by the human immune system. But sometimes, particularly when the immune system is compromised - yeasts will multiply rapidly and overwhelm our systems leading to a variety of unpleasant symptoms – collectively known as candidiasis or yeast infection.

Candida is opportunistic. That is, it jumps in and takes over when your immune defences are down - as with food intolerance like Dairy intolerance or Gluten intolerance. It can also strike following hormonal changes: as with hormone therapy, pregnancy or the contraceptive pill. Repeated courses of anti-biotics can also be a trigger.
