Candida Yeast Diet No 1: Mild Cases

I’ll tell you right now that the Candida Yeast Diet is no fun. But then again, having a Yeast Infection is no fun either. What follows is the best Candida Yeast Diet that I’ve come across. It was originally published in a book which, from what I understand, is no longer in print, by C. Orian Truss, M.D.

It describes a Candida Yeast diet for women with three different levels of Candida Yeast Infection: Mild, Moderate and Severe.

The following is excerpted from "The Nutrition Detective" by Nan Fuchs, Ph.D., pp. 125-129:

Just as there is no simple diagnosis or test for Candida, there is no simple treatment. Stopping the growth of the fungus and driving it out of the tissues are the goals of a multilevel treatment that includes:
  1. Immediate elimination of antibiotics, birth control pills and other hormone-altering substances.
  2. A diet designed to stop feeding the yeast.
  3. Medical use of antifungal agents--such as Nystatin, or a homeopathic liquid, Candex--which permeate the intestines and help destroy Candida throughout the body. Strengthening of the immune system through supplementation.
The diets required to starve out Candida requires that you eliminate all sources of yeast and fungus and all sugars and sweets, including lactose-containing dairy products, except for butter.

Mild cases of Candida: (yeast infections and vague symptoms that are recent) will usually respond to the Candida Diet No. 1

Moderate cases of Candida: (chronic, severe yeast infections or definite, interfering symptoms) would best respond to the Candida Diet No. 2

Severe cases of Candida: which may have begun in early childhood or are debilitating (cannot work, difficulty functioning), would require the persistent efforts of the Candida Diet No. 3

Each diet is listed with foods to eliminate, to reduce, and to emphasize. In addition, each level has its recommended nutritional supplementation.
