Candida Infections

Candida infections result from an overgrowth of the yeast candida, occurring when organisms kill off the protecting beneficial bacteria found in the digestive system. Sufferers experience headaches, bladder infections, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, and moodiness. Candidia infections can be avoided by changes in diet. Avoiding starchy vegetables like carrots, potatoes, and corn; sugar-laden fruit juices; and implementing a probiotic drink like kefir can starve candida while promoting beneficial bacteria growth.
