If you are suffering from yeast infection, you shouldn’t really worry about it much. Here are some tips to cure yourself and live a better life.
One of the ways to prevent yeast infections is to avoid harmful foods. Avoid all sweets that have hidden sweeteners in them like processed foods. Processed foods includes soups, fruit and fruit juices, grains in prepared flake cereals like Buckwheat, rice, spelt, wheat, millet, corn and rye.
Any form of pasta can aggravate a yeast condition
In addition to this, you have to avoid eating granola, instant oats, cornmeal, pearl barley, degerminated Hominy grits and degerminated microwave popcorn Blue corn meal. Pasta should also be avoided when suffering from yeast infections, and should not be eaten when suffering from one.
This is because pasta is made of flour and water, where the flour is white bread flour and may be durum flour made from semolina. Most noodles are also made from the same base, and should thus be avoided. This includes Ramen instant noodles, semolina, white flour noodles and Japanese noodles.
Cakes, pastries, doughnuts and other baked food having sugar should be avoided as they all include sugar. In addition to this, white bread, bread made from wheat like Nan, paratha, tortillas, pita bread, sourdough and other breads of wheat. Even Mochi, the unleavened but sweet bread made from brown rice should be avoided.
Ketchup and decaf coffee are not suggested for yeast infections
If you love legumes, it is better to avoid beans and peas having sweeteners, bean sprouts, tempeh and tofu as they all aggravate yeast infections. Coconut, peanuts, walnuts, sweetened soymilk, dairy products and pistachios should be avoided, along with all kinds of cheese. This includes cottage cheese, milk, sour cream, kefir and sweetened yoghurt.
When you suffer from a yeast infection, it is better to completely avoid fruits as fruits have fructose sugar that aggravates the infection. Once you avoid fruits and cleanse your body, you can start introducing fruits that are slightly sweet like apples, strawberries, grapefruit and melon. However dried fruits are a complete no no when suffering from a yeast infection.
Amongst beverages, alcohol, both regular and decaffeinated coffee, cereal beverages, fruit juices, processed tea drinks like lemon teas, fruit teas, black tea and both soft drinks and diet fruit drinks have to be avoided. Pickles, ketchup, any form of tomato sauce, dried or powdered onion or garlic and spices should also be avoided.
Beef, chicken and pork have to be avoided as they have added antibiotics and hormones in them. As smoked meats like bacon, salami products and sausages have added sugar and should be avoided.
Amongst vegetables, you should eat beans, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, kale, onion, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, peas and celery. There are some vegetables that should be avoided like all types of mushrooms, potato skin, beetroot, canned tomatoes, carrots, cucumber skins and prepared soups.
