Five Foods to Avoid If You're Prone to Those Dreaded Yeast Infections

If you are exposed to recurrent yeast infections, you may not realize that when it comes to yeast, you may actually be what you eat.

One thing yeast tells you is that your body is too acidic, and when you see that your body is too acidic, there are five foods that you need to cut out because it causes moisture in the body.

The good news is that you don't need to take an extreme diet simply to prevent yeast infections. The first and most important thing is to make sure you are properly diagnosed and to treat the leading cause of infection.

Of course, a healthy diet full of whole grains (like quinoa, oatmeal and bulgur), lean protein and lots of fresh vegetables is an ideal way to help treat yeast infections. At the same time, you need to cut down on five foods that cause moisture at least until the infection is gone. They are:

Sugar: When it comes to refined sugars, which have been processed, you've heard them before - they're terrible for your health. And, they can make yeast infections worse. By cutting processed sugars from your diet, you will see many other health benefits, including increasing your yeast infection.

Dairy: Although you may not be lactose intolerant or sensitive to dairy, cut your diet if you are exposed to yeast infection. That means no probiotic yogurt, either. Instead, consider adding high quality probiotics recommended by a health professional.

Bananas: Yes, bananas are healthy foods, there is a difference between good and good food for you. If you deal with yeast infections, the sugar in the banana can make the infection worse. Try removing it from your diet and see if yeast infections improve. You may be able to come back to eat it again, but track your banana intake to make sure they don't contribute to the problem.

Sugary fruits: Cut out high-fat fruits from your diet, such as mangoes and pineapple. You may still have apples, pears and most berries, but too much fruit causes too much acidity in the body, which contributes to the increase in yeast. Try eating three to four times more vegetables than fruit. So if you want to have six servings of fruits and vegetables a day, make four servings of vegetables and two fruits.

Wheat: No, you don't need to be on a strict, gluten-free diet, but try to avoid taking too much wheat, especially in the form of white bread, white pasta and other sources of wheat. Try your usual pasta for brown rice pasta, or skip the bread basket if you go out for dinner. Reducing wheat will help reduce acidity in the body and stop yeast infections in its tracks.
