Candida is a fungus that usually appears in the human body, but what to do in case of overgrowth, i.e. candidiasis? What foods should be avoided and which ones should be included in the diet? Nutritionist Marija Đurković answers this question.

It is not unknown that many bacteria and fungi live naturally in our body and in this way digest food, absorb nutrients, synthesize vitamins, regulate the pH value of the skin, etc.

We call these bacteria good, but when their flora is disturbed, the bad bacteria get a perfect breeding ground. If the body does not fight them, infections and inflammatory processes will develop.

Candida is one of the most common “hosts” that causes us problems. It is a fungus, in fact a form of yeast, whose overgrowth and reproduction cause the intestinal walls to penetrate, then reach the bloodstream and begin to cause us problems.

What are the symptoms of candidiasis?

Candida can affect different parts of the body, so the symptoms are different. You can usually find out by:

  • skin and nail fungus infection
  • digestive problems (bloating, constipation)
  • white spots on the tongue and mucous membranes of the mouth
  • frequent urinary and genital infections, etc.

How to correct the case of candida diet?

If the analysis has already confirmed the excessive presence of the candidate, then your task is to stop further growth as soon as possible, and in addition to medication, diet therapy is essential for a successful outcome.

The bad news is that you need to get rid of all the sweets in your diet for a while, because sugar is what feeds candida, and the good news is that restoring the natural balance of good and bad bacteria will solve this unpleasant problem pretty quickly.

Harmful food

More important than “food treatment” is the exclusion of foods that affect the growth of the candidate.

This is why it is important to know that sugar feeds on candy and that it is necessary to eliminate it in all its forms: buying sweets, cakes, honey, juices, alcohol …

Then: All the dough, pastries and products with yeast and flour.

Appropriate food

In addition to the medications prescribed by your doctor, you can include some natural antibiotics in your diet. For the treatment of Candida, wild oregano oil is generally recommended, and probably the most popular natural antibiotic, garlic. Also: propolis, royal jelly, sage, basil, thyme …
