20 natural products against yeast infection

Despite treatment prescribed by a doctor, many women and men with weakened immune systems cannot cope with candidiasis (or thrush), which is a fungal infection of the genitals. It turns out that diet is a key point in the treatment of this infection, as it creates an environment in the body where the candida fungus cannot multiply. Apart from having to accompany the treatment with medication, proper nutrition is also the best prevention against chronic candidiasis.

Choose fresh natural products for the antifungal diet. Emphasize raw vegetables, but don’t overdo it with fruit. Pay particular attention to the choice of meat – meat products that have been exposed to antibiotics will only help the reproduction of various types of fungi in the gastrointestinal tract, and this will also have a negative effect on immunity.

More fiber and less processed foods containing artificial additives and colorings – this is the main principle in nutrition. Antifungal preparations are only part of the treatment.
