If you want to get rid of your Candida albican infection, try The Candida Diet. It tells you what you should and should not eat in order to starve the Candida.
Candida thrive on sugar. Therefore the Candida Diet is a low sugar - low carbohydrate diet. Carbs are converted to sugar in the body so they need to be avoided as much as possible.
At first the diet may seem overwhelming but you should only need to stay on it for a few weeks. You can then use the Challenge Phase of the Candida Diet to start adding foods back into you diet while looking for symptoms. If a food causes any symptoms, do not eat it.
I never plan on returning to my pre Candida Diet. While doing my research on, I discovered the Standard American Diet (SAD) is responsible for most of the degenerative diseases that are affecting society today.
I wouldn't recommend you return to a SAD diet either. Once you get the toxins cleared out of your system, you will be amazed how good you feel. And how bad you feel when you eat the junk foods you used to eat.
The Candida Diet is discussed in great detail on pages 46-52 in the book "Candida Albicans - The Hidden Disease". It is also covered in six of the eight appendices (Appendix A through Appendix F), covering pages 69 through 77.
Appendix F is a quick reference guide that you cut out and take with you as a shopping guide. No more guessing if you should buy the food or not!

If symptoms recur, you either have not gotten rid of the Candida or you were sensitive to the food prior to getting a Candida overgrowth and it should be avoided for now and retested later.
There are several reasons why the Candida Diet helps to kill off excess Candida. Sugar is the main source of nourishment for the Candida fungus. Most of the foods in the avoid list turn to sugar quickly in the human body. These sugars are not needed by the human body but are vital to the growth of Candida albicans. If you stop feeding the Candida, it will eventually die off.
Even if you cure your Candida overgrowth, if you continue to eat these foods you will end up with another overgrowth.
Most of the foods on the Foods to Eat list like the protein, water and raw foods are all part of a healthy diet that helps build your immunity and fight off the Candida.
Juicing also supplies your body with essential nutrients, live enzymes and plenty of vitamins and minerals that help build your immunity.
The fermented foods contain natural probiotics to help rebuild the beneficial bacteria in your gut that fight off the Candida overgrowth. It is a lack of these beneficial bacteria that allowed the Candida overgrowth in the beginning.
Another component of the Candida Diet is to try to avoid the harmful food additives in the typical SAD. These harmful ingredients lower your immunity and make it harder to fight off the Candida.
Note: you may experience "die off" symptoms & feel like the flu is coming on. It is a temporary condition that happens when your body is overloaded by dead Candida. The Candida need to be eliminated so stick with it - you'll be amazed at how quickly your health and vitality return.
