Cure Candida, Yeast Infections, and Bacterial Vaginosis With Diet
I know how embarrassing and distracting these infections can be. I myself had recurring BV for 10 or so years. I had vaginal exams regularly because of them. The doctor always ended with a prescription for some worthless cream or antibiotic. I took them like a good little girl and but always showed back up in the doctor’s office two months later.
The infinite loop would have never ceased had I not discovered Paleo.
Going Paleo strengthened my immune system enough to make these infections rarer and less severe. However, it was a long time before they vanished completely. I still had to discover what was causing the disruption of vaginal flora.
Non-medical, natural therapies folk are beginning to realize that these infections have something to do with carbohydrates but most of them haven’t noticed which carbohydrates cause the problem. And they definitely don’t know why some women who eat high carb diets get them while other women don’t.
I believe I do.
These infections – candida (yeast) and bacterial vaginosis – result from the fermentation of carbohydrates. The fermentation of undigested carbohydrates plus the nutrient deficiencies and low immune health caused by the resulting leaky gut, all contribute to candida and bacterial vaginosis.
- Abnormal discharge
- Fish-like odor
- Pain during intercourse
- Itching or burning
- Pregnancy complications such as pre-term delivery
- Multiple sex partners
- High carbohydrate diet
These theories are ILLOGICAL. If either of these were the true cause, nearly ever Asian woman would have BV due to their high intake of rice and any faithful married woman would not.
- Low-carbohydrate diet
- Folic acid supplement
The symptoms of a yeast infection are nearly identical to the symptoms of BV except that the discharge associated with candida is usually clumpy rather than creamy and the odor is not as much of a problem. In bacterial vaginosis the symptoms are caused by bacteria and in yeast infections they are caused by a fungus (usually candida albicans).
Suggested preventative measures (BULLSHIT ALERT):
Taken from WebMD
- Keep your vaginal area clean. Use mild, unscented soap and water. Rinse well.
- After using the toilet, wipe from front to back to avoid spreading yeast or bacteria from your anus to the vagina or urinary tract.
- Wear underwear that helps keep your genital area dry and doesn’t hold in warmth and moisture. One good choice is cotton underwear.
- Avoid tight-fitting clothing, such as panty hose, and tight-fitting jeans. These may increase body heat and moisture in your genital area.
- Change out of a wet swimsuit right away. Wearing a wet swimsuit for many hours may keep your genital area warm and moist.
- Change pads or tampons often.
- Don’t douche or use deodorant tampons or feminine sprays, powders, or perfumes. These items can change the normal balance of organisms in your vagina.
This is why I pretty much hate the internet. This kind of shit only serves to make website owners money and divert readers from real solutions. Yeast and bad bacteria thrive in an alkaline environment. The vagina is supposed to be quite acidic. Increasing body heat and moisture isn’t going to change the PH (a douche can – one bit of good advice is to avoid douches). The only thing that is going to prevent a yeast infection is something that will prevent the vagina from becoming a hospitable environment.
How To Eliminate BV and Candida For Good
- Strengthen the immune system through a nutrient dense diet
- Increase zinc and vitamin C
- Heal leaky gut through avoidance of fructose (this includes table sugar) and wheat
- If necessary avoid all FODMAPS (depends on how severe your intolerance to carbohydrates)
That’s it. You don’t need prescriptions from the doctor. You don’t need to throw out all your sexy underwear. You don’t need to move to the arctic circle. And you don’t need to stick tea tree oil tampons in your vagina. All you need to do is fix your carbohydrate fermentation issues and strengthen your immune system.
