If you were to search online for a Candida diet plan, you will be bombarded with so much to choose from. The question that you must answer though is whether the Candida diet plan will fit your particular needs. Here are some guidelines you can use to help you decide which Candida diet plan to use.
A Good Candida Diet Plan Is Holistic
This means that the plan you choose must not concentrate on just one angle, like eating healthy. The Candida diet plan is basically part of a holistic treatment plan to bring out the toxins infecting your body. Aside from just eating properly, you should exercise, take natural hot salt baths, and try coffee enemas if you are a coffee lover. Coffee enemas are great for relieving your liver from too much stress due to the yeast infection.
A Good Candida Diet Plan Is Flexible
It would be virtually impossible to restrict the diet too much. This is because Candida treatment can take as much as 6-12 months to heal. Expecting someone to stick to a boring and lackluster diet, when she does not have to, would be cruel.
Also, a Candida diet plan should take into consideration the personal preferences of the patient. If you enjoy a heavy breakfast, then adjust your meals so that you can enjoy your breakfast (and the rest of the day), then go light with your dinner.
A Good Candida Diet Plan Is Planned Well
Never rush headstrong into a diet plan. Most diet plans will recommend a low carbohydrate plan, but if you start off with this plan right away without allowing your body to adjust slowly to the new diet, then you will suffer more than you have to with die off reactions.
A Good Candida Diet Plan Has Choices
Obviously, you need to eat organic, all natural foods as much as possible. However, if you don’t like a certain vegetable, don’t force it. The diet plan should always have choices. For instance, if you don’t like asparagus, you can have broccoli or cauliflower instead, or use more garlic if you detest ginger.
Knowing what is and is not allowed will help you create a Candida diet plan that works for you. Thus, here are the basics of a great diet plan:
*Fresh herbs which you can use in your salads and main course
*Fresh coconut which is a great food and snack item that works very well with removing toxins from the body. It’s known as the complete snack because you can drink its juice, and eat the coconut meat. You can even have any other coconut product as long as it is unsweetened like coconut butter and coconut cream.
*Fresh Fruits is an alkalizing agent and known to be easy to digest provided you do not eat it with anything else.
*Free Range products like eggs, chicken, duck and turkey are all sources of protein which your body will need.
*Apple cider vinegar or any other unfiltered vinegar from wine
*Celtic sea salt, solar dried pacific sea salt, or pink Himalayan salt are all course salt, brimming with nutrients, but be careful not to go overboard with the salt.
*Fresh vegetables, preferably organic and eaten raw, if possible.
What you will need to stay away from are bread, preserved food and fruits, candies and sodas, and beverage packed in a plastic bottle, food or drinks with sweeteners, food packed in aluminum containers, coffee, tea, fruit juices, deli items, and canned food.
When you get your Candida diet plan approved by your doctor or nutritionist, any changes you make after must be approved. However, the good news is that you can ask for changes in your diet.
