10 Signs You Have Candida Overgrowth & How to Eliminate It

 

Yeast overgrowth, often referred to as Candida, is one of the most common conditions I see in my clinic, especially among my autoimmune patients. I’ve seen thousands of patients suffer from digestive issues, fatigue, brain fog, recurring fungal infections, skin problems, mood swings, and more, all caused by Candida overgrowth!

I have also seen the incredible transformation that they experience by beating their yeast. I’ve witnessed energy and vitality return, mental clarity restored, and chronic symptoms fade away.

You might be wondering, “What on earth is Candida?” Candida is a fungus, which is a form of yeast, a very small amount of which lives in your mouth and intestines. Its job is to aid with digestion and nutrient absorption, but when it is overproduced it breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxic byproducts into your body and causing leaky gut. This can lead to many different health problems ranging from digestive issues to depression.

How do you get Candida overgrowth?

The healthy or ‘good’ bacteria in your gut typically keeps your Candida levels in check. However, the Candida population can get out of hand if a round of antibiotics kill too many of those friendly bacteria, you have a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugar (which feed the yeast), high alcohol intake, are taking oral contraceptives, or any number of other factors including a high-stress lifestyle. Even a diet high in beneficial fermented foods like Kombucha, sauerkraut, and pickles, can feed Candida causing an overgrowth.
 

10 Common Candida Symptoms

  1. Skin and nail fungal infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, and toenail fungus
  2. Feeling tired and worn down or suffering from chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia
  3. Digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, or diarrhea
  4. Autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Ulcerative colitis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Scleroderma, or Multiple sclerosis
  5. Difficulty concentrating, poor memory, lack of focus, ADD, ADHD, and/or brain fog
  6. Skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, hives, and rashes
  7. Irritability, mood swings, anxiety, or depression
  8. Vaginal infections , urinary tract infections, rectal itching, or vaginal itching>
  9. Severe seasonal allergies or itchy ears
  10. Strong sugar and refined carbohydrate cravings

Do you think you have Candida overgrowth? Take this simple quiz to find out!

How do you test for Candida overgrowth?

 
IgG, IgA and IgM Candida Antibodies
Blood tests check for IgG, IgA, and IgM Candida antibodies in your blood, and can be performed at most any lab. High levels of these antibodies indicate that an overgrowth of Candida is present somewhere in the body and that your immune system is reacting to it.

Remember, Candida has the ability to suppress the immune system so it is important to ask your doctor to test your total IgG, IgA and IgM levels along with the Candida antibodies.  Low levels of total IgG, IgA or IgM could cause a false negative response to the Candida antibodies, meaning you have Candida but since your immune system is lowered, you are unable to produce a response and your blood test comes back negative. Since I see so many patients with suppressed immune systems, I find in my clinic that blood tests can often be negative even when the stool or urine tests are positive.

Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Often, I will see clues on a CBC that let me know that yeast is present.  A low white blood cell count (WBC) has been associated with yeast overgrowth as well as a pattern of  high neutrophil and low lymphocyte count. While these are non-specific to yeast, after working with thousands of patients, I can tell you I see this pattern very frequently in those with Candida overgrowth.

Stool Testing
I personally find this to be the most accurate test available. This will check for Candida in your colon or lower intestines. However, you need to make sure that your doctor orders a comprehensive stool test rather than the standard stool test. With the stool test, your stool is directly analyzed for levels of yeast. The lab can usually determine the species of yeast as well as which treatment will be effective.

Urine Organix Dysbiosis Test
This test detects D-Arabinitol a waste product of Candida yeast overgrowth. An elevated test means an overgrowth of Candida. This test will determine if there is Candida in your upper gut or small intestines.

How do you treat Candida overgrowth?

Effectively treating Candida involves stopping the yeast overgrowth, restoring the friendly bacteria that usually keep them in check, and healing your gut so that Candida can no longer enter your bloodstream. I accomplish this with a three-wave attack in my simple and proven 30-day protocol for eliminating Candida.

7 Symptoms of Candida Overgrowth (Plus How to Get Rid of It)

Many types of fungi live in and on the human body, including the genus of yeasts known as Candida.

Candida is typically found in small amounts in the mouth and intestines and on the skin.

At normal levels, the fungus is not problematic.

However, when Candida begins to grow uncontrollably, it can cause an infection known as candidiasis.

In fact, Candida is the most common cause of fungal infections in humans (1, 2).

Typically, the healthy bacteria in your body keep Candida levels under control.

However, if healthy bacteria levels are disrupted or the immune system is compromised, Candida can begin to overproduce.

Below are a few factors that can lead to Candida overgrowth:

  • Taking antibiotics
  • Eating a diet high in sugar and refined carbs
  • High alcohol intake
  • A weakened immune system
  • Taking oral contraceptives
  • Diabetes
  • High stress levels

When Candida begins to overproduce, it can lead to various health problems.

This article explores 7 symptoms of Candida overgrowth and how you can treat it.

  1. Oral Thrush

Candidiasis that develops in the mouth or throat is called “thrush.”

It’s most common in newborns, the elderly and those with a weakened immune system.

Individuals with poor oral hygiene or removable dentures are also at an increased risk.

People with oral thrush typically develop white, bumpy patches on their tongue, inner cheeks, gums, tonsils or throat (11).

The lesions can be painful and may bleed slightly when scraped.

Oral thrush is also often associated with redness or soreness of the tongue and mouth.

In very bad cases, it can spread to the esophagus and cause pain or difficulty swallowing.

Summary: When there is too much Candida in the mouth, it can cause white, bumpy lesions, redness and pain in the mouth and throat. This is also known as oral thrush.

  1. Tiredness and Fatigue

One of the most common symptoms associated with Candida is fatigue.

While there’s no evidence that Candida causes fatigue, there are a couple of ways in which it could contribute to it.

First, candidiasis is often accompanied by nutritional deficiencies, such as vitamin B6, essential fatty acids and magnesium.

Particularly, magnesium deficiency has been known to cause fatigue.

Second, Candida infections commonly occur when the immune system is weakened.

A low-functioning immune system in itself may leave you feeling tired and fatigued.

One study suggests that prolonged candidiasis of the gut may even be a potential cause of chronic fatigue syndrome.

Summary: Candidiasis is most common in individuals with a weakened immune system and may be accompanied by various nutritional deficiencies. This can leave you feeling tired and fatigued.

  1. Recurring Genital or Urinary Tract Infections

Candida is found in the vaginal tracts of most women.

An overgrowth of it can lead to candidiasis of the vagina, also known as a yeast infection.

It’s estimated that 75% of all women will get at least one vaginal yeast infection in their lifetime, and half of those will have at least one recurrence (16).

Men can also get genital yeast infections, but it’s much less common.

Symptoms of vaginal candidiasis include redness, swelling, itching, painful intercourse and a thick, white discharge from the vagina.

Although it’s much less common, Candida can also cause a urinary tract infection (UTI).

Candida-related urinary tract infections are most common in the elderly, hospitalized or immune-compromised individuals (17).

Symptoms of a UTI include a burning feeling when you urinate, a frequent urge to urinate, cloudy, dark or strange-smelling urine and pain or pressure in your lower abdomen.

Although, other bacteria like E. coli are more likely to cause UTIs.

However, if you suffer from recurring infections and believe they are a result of Candida overgrowth, you can have your urine tested to find out.

Summary: Candida can cause genital and urinary tract infections, both of which can lead to pain and discomfort.

  1. Digestive Issues

The health of your digestive system relies heavily on a good balance between the “good” and “bad” bacteria that live in your gut.

The “good” bacteria that normally reside in your gut are important for digestion, as they help process starches, fibers and some sugars.

When the bacteria in your gut become imbalanced, you can experience digestive issues, including constipation, diarrhea, nausea, gas, cramps and bloating.

Recent studies indicate that an overgrowth of Candida is associated with several diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease (18).

Summary: Having small amounts of Candida in your gut is normal. However, if it starts to overproduce, it may cause various gut-related symptoms.

  1. Sinus Infections

Chronic sinus infections affect one in eight adults in the US (19).

Common symptoms include a runny nose, nasal congestion, loss of smell and headaches.

Although short-term sinus infections are mostly caused by bacteria, many longer-term, chronic sinus infections are believed to be fungal.

A study by the Mayo Clinic looked at a group of 210 individuals with chronic sinus infections and found that 96% of them had fungi in their mucus (20).

Antibiotics are the usual method of treating sinus infections. This may work for acute bacterial sinus infections, but not chronic fungal ones.

In fact, treating a chronic sinus infection with antibiotics could actually make it worse.

If you have sinus infections that last longer than one month, Candida may be to blame.

Summary: Many chronic sinus infections are believed to be caused by fungi. If you have a sinus infection that lasts longer than one month, Candida may be the cause.

  1. Skin and Nail Fungal Infections

Just like in your gut, there are bacteria on your skin that prevent Candida from growing uncontrollably.

All bacteria thrive in different conditions, including varying temperature, moisture or acidity levels.

That’s why a change in the environment on your skin can allow Candida to overproduce.

For example, cosmetics, soaps and moisturizers can alter skin conditions, especially the antibacterial varieties.

While skin candidiasis can affect any part of the body, areas that are warm and moist, such as the armpits and groin, are particularly prone to infection.

Itching and a visible rash are the two most common symptoms of skin fungal infections.

An overgrowth of Candida can cause conditions like athlete’s foot, ringworm and toenail fungus (21).

While not life threatening, skin fungal infections can be very uncomfortable and significantly decrease quality of life.

Summary: An overgrowth of Candida on the skin can cause conditions like athlete’s foot, ringworm and nail fungal infections.

7. Joint Pain

If a Candida infection enters your bloodstream and travels through your body, it can infect the joints and cause arthritis (22).

This typically only happens after surgery or when an overgrowth of Candida is left untreated for an extended period of time.

Candida arthritis is associated with pain, stiffness and swelling in your joints.

Hips and knees tend to be the most commonly infected.

Candida can also cause bone infections, or osteomyelitis, which can cause pain and tenderness in the infected area (23).

Bone and joint infections are not very common, but once you are infected, they can be very difficult to get rid of.

Summary: If an overgrowth of Candida is left untreated, it can enter your bloodstream and travel throughout your entire body. When this happens, Candida can infect bones and joints, causing pain, stiffness and swelling.

How to Treat Candidiasis

The best way to treat candidiasis and prevent recurring infections is to address the underlying cause.

The food you eat plays an important role in maintaining the balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria in your gut.

Refined sugars, carbs and high-lactose dairy products can encourage Candida and other “bad” microorganisms to grow (24).

Eating too many of these foods may promote infection if you have a suppressed immune system.

On the other hand, certain foods have specifically been shown to encourage “good” bacteria to grow and inhibit the growth of Candida.

The following foods have been shown to help fight Candida infections:

  • Garlic: Garlic contains an antifungal substance called allicin, which has been shown to act against Candida yeasts in animal and test-tube studies (25, 26).
  • Coconut oil: Coconut oil is high in lauric acid, which has been shown to fight Candida infections in multiple test-tube studies (27, 28).
  • Curcumin: Test-tube studies indicate that curcumin may kill Candida yeasts, or at least reduce their growth (29, 30, 31, 32).
  • Xylitol: In one test-tube study, xylitol helped fight Candida, decreasing its ability to stick to a surface and cause infection (33).
  • Aloe vera: Aloe vera gel may inhibit the growth of Candida in the mouth and prevent infections (34).
  • Pomegranate: A test-tube study indicated that the plant compounds in pomegranate are beneficial against Candida yeasts (35).
  • Kombucha: Kombucha tea is rich in tea polyphenols and acetic acid, both of which have been shown to kill Candida in test-tube studies (36).
  • Probiotics: Probiotics like Lactobacillus may reduce Candida growth and protect against infections (37).

Unfortunately, dietary changes may not always do the trick, in which case antifungal drugs are the most common form of treatment.

Candida is typically not life-threatening, but if left untreated, it can spread and eventually reach the bloodstream.

Once the fungus is circulating throughout the body, it can affect vital organs like the brain and heart and cause more serious complications, including death (38, 39).

Summary: Limiting your intake of refined sugars and carbs may help prevent Candida overgrowth. In the case of an infection, certain foods, probiotics and antifungal drugs can help.

The Bottom Line

Candida is the most common cause of fungal infections in humans.

Several key symptoms can help you determine whether you have an overgrowth of Candida.

The most common signs of infection include oral thrush, recurring genital yeast infections, digestive issues and fungal infections of the skin and nails.

It’s important to treat candidiasis early to prevent it from spreading and causing more serious complications.


Welcome Green Monsters! We're your online guide to making conscious choices that help people, animals and the planet.

Candida diets are a commonly known type of diet unlike most types of diets we hear about. A candida diet is catered to someone who has an overgrowth of a type of yeast we all have living inside of us: candida albicans. Though we have multiple types of yeast colonies (well, actually hundreds), along with other types of bacteria cultures inside our digestive tracts making up our microbiome, not all of these are good yeast or good bacteria we associate with probiotics, etc. Candida is one of the yeasts that can easily take over and when it does, you suffer severe health effects that not only weaken the body but also make you miserable in the meantime. Candida thrives off sugar, plain and simple. It ferments the sugar which can lead to digestive problems to start with, killing good bacteria our systems need for optimal balance, and can wreak havoc in a larger aspect down the line.

For years, mainstream medicine downplayed the severity—some even negated the entire existence of—candida overgrowth, that is no longer occurring. People are suffering from candidiasis today as much as they are the common cold or case of allergies. Candida is real and its side effects are not just annoying; they can wreak havoc on your health, specifically gut health, and lead to immune disorders, multiple food allergies, digestive problems that persist and worsen, joint pain, chronic fatigue, hair loss, skin problems, and much, much more. And of course, like all yeast overgrowth, jock itch, ringworm, psoriasis, and even eczema can also occur. When candida thrives, our good bacteria die away.

 

Some of the main reasons this can happen are from one of the following reasons:  exposure to prescription drugs, birth control pills or hormone pills, a high exposure to meats and other animal foods high in added hormones or antibiotics, rounds of antibiotics that deplete both bad AND good bacteria which allow the bad bacteria to come back more forcefully than the good, a diet high in sugar, alcohol, refined and processed carbohydrates that feed bad yeasts,  high amounts of stress that weaken the body, autoimmune disorders that weaken the body and allow yeasts to thrive more easily, digestive disorders (Crohn’s, IBS, etc.), chronic yeast infections as a child (can be a sign you’re more prone to candida which can be passed on through certain traits or issues that occur during childhood such as high amounts of antibiotic exposure, etc. food addictions (binging and consistently eating unhealthy foods like sugar and processed foods can feed it and cause it to grow significantly more, leading to higher cravings each time). Oh, blood sugar issues (candida thrives off sugar and can eat up the sugars for “food” which can make you want more and more, always suffering blood sugar ups and downs)  And these are only SOME of the main causes of candida overgrowht. While everyone has candida, it’s normally meant to stay dormant and co-exist with the trillions of other types of bacterial cells we have living in us. When it doesn’t do that, however, it leads to seriously poor health that causes us to be tired, suffer food reactions, feel sick to our stomach, have severe cravings and blood sugar swings, can lead to mood disorders, poor focus, brain fog and can even lead to depression. Candida also causes digestive disorders like leaky gut syndrome which can lead to autoimmune disorders and more.

 

Our gut is key to our health, therefore candida overgrowth is something we need to address through our diets and lifestyle choices—pronto. You can not completely GET RID of candida. It is meant to exist in our bodies and can actually protect the body from having too much sugar in the bloodstream at a given time (since it does feed off sugar), however, it is very easy for candida to take over and keeping it under control is not easy but once you are able to, you feel like a new person and can live your entire life as normal while co-existing with this incredible complex creature we know as candida albicans.

Here are 10 of the most healing foods to eat that not only starve candida cells but also build the body and act as a shield against harmful yeast. As you’ll see, these are also low-carb foods. Though a low-carb diet is not necessary for everyone, the idea is to starve the yeast of food (and in this case, that is anything that turns to sugar in the bloodstream which breaks down to higher carb foods). The important foods to focus on are as many green foods as possible, foods with alkaline sources of protein, and that are as fresh and natural as possible. Healthy, high fat foods are also very healthy and supply the body with ample support and do not feed bad bacteria when they come from the right sources.

  1. Greens Leafy greens are good for every type of health issue one could imagine. For candida, they alkalize the body which fights against the acidic nature of yeast overgrowth. Greens contain no sugars but high amounts of magnesium that naturally detox the body, vitamin C to build the immune system, chlorophyll to cleanse the body, B vitamins to energize the body, and iron to give the body full support.
  2. Herbs Herbs such as oregano and basil have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits. Oregano is beneficial for breaking down yeast walls and killing bad bacteria, while basil can also improve immune health by acting as an immunity-building herb. Peppermint aids in digestion which can suffer during a candida  overgrowth/outbreak, while cilantro and parsley detox the body, build the blood, and supply the body with chlorophyll and vitamin C.
  3. Cruciferous Vegetables Broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and bok choy are all excellent cruciferous veggies to enjoy. These fiber-rich goodies are packed with detoxifying enzymes and compounds that the liver can use to fight bad bacteria and toxins, especially candida. Though candida lives in the gut, when it gets out of hand, it spreads and becomes systemic affecting the liver and other organs of the body. Giving your liver good foods that detox it the natural way is a great way to keep yourself healthy; plus, these foods have fiber that keep the digestive system moving things out, including bad bacteria!
  4. Coconut No matter what part of the coconut you choose, coconut is a candida weapon of destruction! Coconut oil is especially powerful, as is coconut butter and whole coconut meat (or shreds, slices, etc.). Avoid coconut products with added sugars (like raw treats or sweetened coconut waters) that only feed candida further. Coconut’s natural fats supply anti-bacterial agents such as lauric acid, along with medium-chain-triglyceride fats which break down yeast walls and support liver function. Include a couple servings of coconut in some form or another every day while cleansing from candida.
  5. Avocado This plant-based fat is rich in chlorophyll, very alkaline, and unlike nuts, is is a good source of fat not prone to mold. While nuts are healthy, they do tend to harvest mold easily if not kept under the right conditions. For someone with candida, any type of mold will trigger an outbreak. Candida thrives off sugary, moldy foods (bread, cheese, beer, etc.) therefore it’s important to eat fresh sources of raw, healthy fats like avocados whenever possible. As an added bonus, avocados contain B vitamins, magnesium, and alkaline protein … some of the best nutrient weapons against candida overgrowth
  6. Hemp, Chia, and Flax These protein-rich, plant-based seeds are some of the easiest to digest and best for cleansing. They also provide the body with omega-3 fatty acids which protect the immune system, supply the gut with ample lubrication, aid in regularity, and benefit the brain health. All of these are important for someone with candida and should be prioritized through meals however possible.
  7. Sauerkraut and Kimchi Probiotic-rich foods that are made from plants are excellent for those with candida overgrowth. Though some fermented foods may need to be avoided (chocolate, beer, wine, cheese, and even some people are sensitive to kombucha and kefir depending on the type of person), sauerkraut and kimchi are very beneficial for everyone. These veggie-based dishes ferment on their own, without an added yeast culture. This makes them not only more natural, but also free of added sugars that are used in other fermented foods to feast the yeast. Sauerkraut and kimchi are also made of cabbage, a top detoxing food that is rich in B vitamins, immunity enhancing properties, enzymes, natural probiotics, and vitamin C to support the body.
  8.  Apple Cider Vinegar  All types of vinegar should be avoided with candida overgrowth, except for apple cider vinegar (ACV). It is the only vinegar that provides an alkalizing benefit for the body and actually causes candida yeast cells to die … not thrive. Apple cider vinegar can also help detox the digestive system, alkalize the blood, reduce symptoms like headaches and sluggish digestion, along with joint pain and chronic itching that can come with candida overgrowth. It can be taken internally and applied externally to help with symptoms.
  9. Garlic and Onion Garlic and onions are two of the most potent, detoxifying veggies out there. They detox the liver, colon, blood, and improve immune health. These two allium veggies also have compounds that kill yeasts, parasites, and fight most all types of illness associated with bacteria overgrowth. Eat them daily if you can, especially garlic which is lower in natural sugars than onions.
  10. Fresh Foods (Not Leftovers) It’s also very important that you don’t eat foods that sit too long in the fridge. Remember, candida thrives off of old, moldy foods. Even if a food looks and smells fine, the fresher it is, the better it will be. A day or so should not hurt, but that dish you made two or three nights ago? Nope … better to make all your meals fresh when trying to heal from candida. Your body will thank you and you won’t risk feeding the yeast further. Exceptions to this include items like salads, raw vegetables, or even guacamole (a great low-carb, candida-friendly snack) that keeps well. Overall, the leftovers rule applies to cooked food dishes. If you eat out at a restaurant, avoid fried foods, and also eat as fresh as possible like you would at home.

Don’t forget the water either! It’s important to flush the body and keep it hydrated with plain water. Add a little lemon if you like since lemon has anti-bacterial properties and can also support the liver.

Build your meals off of fresh vegetables, greens, healthy fats, and plant-based proteins. This is one of the healthiest ways to eat, not to mention fight candida all through what you eat … by starving the yeast of foods that turn to sugar in the bloodstream that can cause it to thrive.

The Top 10 Foods to Avoid sweets  Now that you know what to eat, it’s important to know what to avoid. Here are 10 of the worst foods that feed candida very easily … in fact, these foods are like candy to candida! 1. Sugar (all forms, even fruit in the early stages of candida cleansing to starve the yeast) 2. Alcohol (made of harmful fermented yeast that disrupt bacteria balance in the digestive tract) 3. Processed foods  4. Peanuts (naturally contain mold) … be careful with cashews unless they are raw and bought very fresh as they too are prone to mold. (Stick to raw almonds or Brazil nuts instead, very low in sugar and highly detoxifying when eaten raw and kept cold to prevent mold.) 5. Dairy (lactose, the sugar in milk can feed candida) 6. All vinegar aside from ACV 7. Added hormones in foods (meats, dairy, eggs, fish, etc.) 8. Artificial Sweeteners 9. Breads and Pastas 10. All refined grains and flours   Consider taking a vegan (dairy-free) probiotic to build up healthy bacteria in the gut needed to fight the yeast and re-balance your gut health. You might also look into taking L-glutamine that is used to heal the gut and assist with sugar cravings. Digestive enzymes can also help digest your meals easier, which is helpful during a candida outbreak when digestive function slows down. Be sure to get enough rest and a little sunshine if you can. Candida thrives off exhaustion and stress, but sunlight, along with a well-rested and well-functioning body, amplifies the immune system to help your body fight back. Always remember that yeast thrive in dark and moldy atmospheres, which includes too much time indoors.

 

Be sure to get adequate fiber to help the colon detox your body from toxins the natural way instead of taking pricey detox candida supplements that might make things worse, not better. Psyllium husks, coconut flour, flax, chia, and chia bran (ground chia seeds) are all good options. Avoid most wheat brans and oat brans since sometimes grains can cause a candida overgrowth reaction. In fact, most people do avoid grains aside from brown, wild, and black rice, but others are able to eat oats and even barley—everyone is different, so listen to your body.

Die off from yeast overgrowth can cause extreme fatigue before you start to feel better. This normally lasts three or four days but is a sign the yeast cells are dying. During this time, it’s incredibly important to keep going, follow the healing protocol, and get enough rest. Warm ginger and herbal teas are especially helpful, cleansing, and relaxing so implement these however you can. You should also moderate your exercise routine and not push yourself too hard. Implement hot baths with Epsom salt and consider taking magnesium supplements before bed to help you rest. Epsom salt contains magnesium salts that cleanse the body and can help you relax, while a magnesium citrate powder or supplement can help regulate digestion and help you sleep better too. Be sure not to skip meals, but also don’t eat more than your body tells you it can handle. Be good to it during this important time—you’ll heal much more quickly as a result.

Living with a Candida Prone Body … a Healing Journey

The most important thing to remember is that you may need to be careful with your diet most of your life; come to accept this and honor your body instead of try to ignore it. The most important thing to remember is not to eat sugar, refined grains or carbs, or eat a food that you know triggers your candida. Doing so only causes a larger relapse and each time your body becomes weaker. Be good to yourself and explain to others in your life you need them to help support you during this time, and for life if it is a severe issue. Some people can add fruits back and most grains, while others can’t. Your body will let you know as symptoms reoccur if a food is a trigger for you or not. Look at your candida as a part of you … just like an allergy or anything else you would have to care for. The important thing is to eat in a way that feels good for you and with—or without—a candida-friendly diet, it’s important that you do that so you can live your best life and be the healthiest form of you possible!
