Dr. Sarah Hallberg: Can a ketogenic diet help combat yeast infections?

August 12, 2019


Can a ketogenic diet help
fight yeast infections? – There is not any data on that. We do not have any
clinical trials on this. You know, yeast infections
usually are caused by they can be in warmth, so
warm places in the body, you know, people can get
them anywhere from underneath their breasts to underneath
(mumbling) to vaginally. And again, sugar does
feed yeast infections. So I think that the basic
science is there that this may truly be a help,
but we cannot promote that because we just don’t have
rigorous clinical trial evidence for this. So what I say is try it if
you’re battling yeast infections, and see if this is something that helps.

    To me it is definitely helping to get rid of intestinal candida overgrowth. After only 1 week I am seeing incredible results- white tongue turned nice pink again and the gums are not bleeding, the inflammation disappeared. These are pretty obvious because you can see when it happens. But also bloating and constipation is gone. I can really recommend this to people suffering from candida overgrowth.
