Cooking For Candida Albicans Relief Doesn*t Have To Be Hard Work. - Articles Surfing
In this article we are going to cover how cooking for candida albicans relief does not need to be onerous or a chore. There are many nutritional, tasty options available, even when your diet is restricted, but they do require planning.
Candida Albicans is a naturally occurring form of yeast found in the human body and is mostly located in the digestive system.
Normally, if we have a healthy amount of friendly bacteria found in the body and our immune system is functioning properly, we will never suffer from a candida overgrowth, as the candida is kept in check by the body's defenses.
However, if these defenses weaken, either through the use of antibiotics, or through a reduced immune system, Candida Albicans is given the opening it needs to become prevalent in the body.
A great way of helping to suppress that growth is by watching what you eat. The foods we eat and how we cook have a significant impact on the yeast infection's ability to multiply.
Essentially, we can either feed the candida, or starve it with our diet.
It is important that the foods you include in your diet are those which will not provide an environment in your body that helps to promote the growth of bad bacteria. Below we will look at two particular groups of foods that should be avoided when preparing food for a Candida Albicans sufferer.
1. Sugar, especially refined.
Foods that contain sugars, especially refined sugars, should be removed from your diet as much as possible, and from cooking completely.
Refined sugars such as corn syrup, maple syrup, granulated white sugar, brown sugar and molasses help to encourage the growth of yeast.
So when looking to purchase food items from your local store to prepare a meal with it is important that check the ingredients on the label.
Also, avoid using fruit and fruit juices in recipes as these contain naturally high levels of fruit sugar (fructose), which again can promote Candida Albicans growth in the body.
Finally, avoid recipes that contain alcohol. Alcohol has a high level of sugar as well as being fermented from yeast.
All food products, which contain yeast such as muffins, breads and crackers, need to be avoided.
These products not only contain sugar but also yeast, which can help to promote the growth of the yeast that causes Candida Albicans.
Unfortunately, all sauces, which include vinegar, need to be eliminated also, as they are made from yeast culture. This includes salad dressings, as well as pickles, mayonnaise and sauces such as barbeque or source based products. These need to omitted from any recipes when cooking for Candida Albicans.
What you should be doing is increasing your consumption of high fiber foods, as this will help the body to fight Candida Albicans yeast infections. Plus increase your intake of organic produce if possible as organic foods do not contain the same levels of antibiotics and hormones, both of which may exacerbate the problems associated with Candida Albicans rather than alleviating them.
Increasing the amount of garlic, both raw and in cooking is beneficial. Garlic has both a antibacterial and anti-fungal effect in the body, and so can help when combating candida.
