Candida albicans: Diet and drugs

How safe are drugs against Candida?

The medical profession has access to numerous anti-fungal drugs (antifungals), but apparently there is still no medication can be prescribed and that is both completely effective and completely safe, because some of these drugs have side effects and require regular monitoring of liver functions. Moreover, the researchers report that polygenic antibiotics, like nystatin, may actually stimulate the yeast and to expand the number of colonies (1).

No systemic medications designed to destroy the Candida in the intestines may well invade the bloodstream through a leaky gut, thus generating toxicity. And while no systemic medications are unable to kill Candida, when it has formed colonies outside the intestine.
Recurrence of candidiasis

The usual medication therapeutic approach to Candida infections is the use of antifungal nystatin type and imidazoles. It is noted that the yeast are in most recurrent cases, ie, repeated with some frequency in the same person. This fact should make us think that there are certain factors that should care to prevent recurrence. Among these factors are dietary factors, hygiene and medicine.

It is not uncommon, and that many women know from experience that after a classical antibiotic treatment for cystitis, for example, occurs an candidal vulvovaginitis with pain, itching, vaginal discharge and intense discomfort. Easily establishing a vicious circle between microbial and fungal infection (fungal / yeast) that must be broken for success. Likewise, treatment with progesterone or hormonal contraceptives, can exacerbate or trigger the problem especially if they have been associated in time to the traditional antibiotics. The hormonal change itself may indeed be a trigger for an increase of candida.

Diet against Candida albicans
The goal of the diet in the fight against Candida symptoms is to kill hunger. Yeast has the ability to ferment glucose from the diet, and sugar facilitates the development of fungi (2), and thus all forms of sugar, sucrose, glucose, lactose, maltose, and fructose should be avoided.

Refined carbohydrates increase glucose load. Many doctors limit the consumption of fruit for a limited period while others prohibit its high sugar content. Trowbridge and Lorenzani Doctors are equally strict in this detail.

Foods containing yeast (bread made with yeast) must also be eliminated from the diet because of the high degree of cross-sensitization between Candida and other yeasts. Also must delete everything that has been obtained from any matter fermented (vinegar, alcohol), all containing a mold (cheese, mushrooms and mushrooms) and stimulants (tea and coffee) due to its effects as liberators from sugar into the bloodstream via the adrenal glands.

Some foods that tend to restrict are:
Cereals, Sugar, Sweets, Pastries, Jams, Soft Drinks, Pasta, potatoes, rice, bread, mushrooms, beets, fermented products, vinegar, wine, alcohol, milk and dairy products, fruit.

Often many people with Candida experience a continued appetite for foods that help the development of Candida, and the patient needs to be helped with positive dietary guidelines, to avoid a negative attitude about their health regimen.
