Does Carrot Juice Help With My Yeast Infection?

August 12, 2019

Good day, Eric Bakker, Naturopath again with
another frequently asked question regarding yeast infections. Does carrot juice help my yeast infection? I occasionally get patients asking me what
specific juices can I have to really nail this yeast infection. I love carrot juice
or I love apple juice or I love orange juice. Can these juices be of an advantage to me? Yes and no. In my book, I write about the
three different types of ways you can consume juices. I’ve got the beginner, the intermediate
and advanced way of juicing. When you begin juicing, if you’re not used to it, the sweeter
juices are often palatable. And as you progress and get more experience, you can go for the
more bitter juices, including broccoli, kale, and spinach. These are the more beneficial
juices, as they are more phytonutrient dense juices. I would recommend that you be very careful
with carrot juice because it has a high sucrose content. Many people tend to make juice and
they tend to throw the fiber out and just consume the juice. This is quite a high sugar
load and is not a very good idea when you’ve got Candida to consume a high sugar load. So I would recommend that you would not have
carrot juice, initially, unless you consume it in small amounts along with celery and
perhaps some green tart apple. In small amounts, you’ll probably be okay. But you really want
to reserve carrot juice until your gut improves down the track. And when you do do it, perhaps
a good idea for you is to look at perhaps a Vita Mix juicer, which I use, which will
incorporate all the fiber as well as the juice which you can dilute with some water. That
way, you’re going to slow the amount of sugar uptake in the gut. In nature, you don’t find things growing as
pure sucrose or fructose. They will always come in combination with fiber. And I believe
the best way to consume vegetable juice or fruit juice is by consuming the fiber along
with the juice. So give that a try. Thank you.
