The primary course of treatment when curing Candida yeast infections naturally is the inclusion of healthy diet and lifestyle changes. One of my main focuses is teaching my patients how to slow down – how to go “warm turkey” instead of “cold turkey” - slowly implementing changes to their diets so they can stick with them instead of getting frustrated and quitting.
One of the introductions I like to make is the inclusion of fermented or cultured foods, specifically dairy products like yogurt. Yogurt contains tons of probiotics, especially lactobacillus bacteria, which are essential to the healing process within the intestines and immune system when battling yeast.
