The best cure for yeast infection is to starve the yeast. Yeast thrive on simple carbohydrates. These include cane and beet sugar, corn and maple syrups and molasses.
In the initial stages of yeast infection, avoid foods high in simple carbohydrates and foods with high content of yeast or mold including alcoholic beverages, cheeses, dried fruits, melons, and peanuts.
Limit intake of high carbohydrates vegetables such as potatoes, corn, yams, and parsnips.
Foods that can be eaten freely include all green vegetables and protein sources such as: legumes, fish, poultry, and meat. Shiitake mushrooms and garlic are good immune boosters. Whole grains, whole wheat, brown rice, peas, beans, and vegetables are more slowly digested and therefore less likely to promote yeast growth.
Can be dificult to cure yeast infections but simple measures may help to keep them away at bay. Wear loose, natural fiber underwear with cotton crotch. Avoid tights, leggings, pantyhose, and tight jeans. Exercise in breathable clothing. Shower and change right after exercising.
Don’t sit around in a wet bathing suit, as chlorine in swimming pools can affect the vagina, leading to a chemical induced irritation that may allow the vaginal yeast to act up.
Avoid hot tubs, especially those in public facilities. Wash underwear in very hot water when suffering from yeast infections.
Women should investigate the possibility of having their sexual partners treated with anti fungal medications at the same time they undergo yeast infection cure, because yeast infections can be passed back and forth between partners. Do not use tampons when an infection is present, they will absorb anti yeast medication.
