Yeast Control Diet

In order to rid the body of yeast one must stop feeding the yeast, and stop those activities that inhibit the body from balancing its natural flora. The majority of yeast problems begin with drugs that kill bacteria in the body – both the friendly and the unfriendly. All antibiotics, cortisone-type drugs, oral contraceptives and chemotherapeutic drugs are destructive to the body’s natural flora.

After one has begun to eliminate the cause of the problem, he or she must begin to build the body by replacing the friendly flora which has been destroyed. Begin with taking a product designed to kill the unfriendly yeast in the body. This can be an herbal product, an enzyme, or some form of homeopathic remedy. Choose the product you will use with the help of a health professional, then take that product every day, without fail, or the program will not work. Then take a multi-strain probiotic and take a sufficient amount between meals to begin the restoration process.

Finally, be sure that the foods you put into your body do not work against the rebuilding process. DO NOT use processed or packaged meats in any form, canned goods, vinegar, sugar in any form, yeast products, cakes, candy, mushrooms, peanuts, and pickled, dried, or smoked foods.

Your diet should consist mainly of fresh vegetables and meat purchased in an unprocessed state. Your diet and your observance of the above rules will determine whether or not you will ever get over being sick and tired.
