Should I Eat Less Bread If I Have A Yeast Infection ?

August 15, 2019

Good day, there. Eric Bakker, naturopath,
author of Candida Crusher with another frequently asked question. Should I not eat as much bread? Bread’s not really an ideal food if you’re
trying to recover from a yeast infection. But while I don’t think it’s a good food if
you’re trying to recover from any type of a digestive problem, if you’re trying to lose
weight, if you’re trying to build your health, bread’s not a very good food. In saying that,
I’m talking about commercial bread. I think once your health is good, you’ve got good
digestive health, your weight isn’t a problem; I can’t see any problem with eating good quality
bread from time to time. But in my experience, many people eat too
much bread. They have bread for breakfast. And when I’m talking about bread, I’m talking
about bagels, donuts, cookies, all these manifestations of these farinaceous products; risen bread,
in particular, with yeast and sugar in it is not a very good food if you’re trying to
recover from a yeast infection. It’s very difficult for your digestion to really pick
up when you eat this food quite regularly and continually. And a great way for you to
lose weight is to cut bread out of your diet; just stop eating bread. Get rid of the potatoes,
get rid of the bread, get rid of the Paska, these are ideal ways for you to really build
good health. So, can I eat bread again? Yes, you can eat
bread again, but let’s first get rid of that yeast infection. So I try and get people off
risen bread, commercial bread that’s been risen with yeast. And I’m pretty strict with
people in my diet, my Candida diet. You can read a lot more about my diet in Candida Crusher,
in my book, Chapter 7, the first section there’s over 100 pages on diet and nutrition. And
I write quite a lot about grains and breads and rice and quinoa and amaranth and these
other types of grains. There are alternatives to bread, so you don’t really need to eat
bread. That’s assuming bread’s made from wheat of course. Bread can be made from many grains. Try not really to eat bread if you’re trying
to overcome a yeast infection. And if you must eat bread, at least give your digestive
system a good three or four weeks on the Candida Crusher diet and then when you do eat bread,
as I talk about in my book, eat the flat bread or the mountain bread. It’s only made from
a good quality, whole meal, stone ground flour, some salt and some water. That’s not a bad
option. But my opinion would be to keep away from these foods for a long period of time;
wheat in particular. I’m going to talk a lot more about that in other YouTube clips. I’m going to dispel the myth on what I think
is this gluten problem that a lot of people talk about. I don’t really see it to be much
of a problem. I’ll explain a lot more in other clips. So keep your eye out for other YouTube
clips on gluten and yeast and irritable bowel. Let’s get back to the question. Should I not
eat as much bread? No, you shouldn’t. You should try and avoid bread for a long period
of time if you’re really serious about getting rid of your yeast infection. So I hope that answers your question. Thank

    I NEED a Clear program about what and when to eat on candidate diet…
    Can we get your formula of probiotics in Sweden? And if not can you please give me a name of good brand. I'm asking that because all the good names has no delivery to here, like I'm living in another planet 😕.
    So it's diet" no sugar, grains, vegetables like potatoes and others, alcohol, coffee….and I use oregano thyme because I hate coconut oil…. then must find good probiotics. Exercising when I don't have migraine. Taking vitamins but not finding good food based here either.
    Do I need to do something more or buy more supplements?
    I'm now 103 pounds and I don't want to lose more weight! Help!!!

    I understand bread has yeast. You say let go of bread for long periods of time. Can you be specific. Like if I eat a chicken sandwish with a bun one day when I'm out, how long before I can have some bread again? Or is it best just to leave out period. And which bread is good to eat, once in a while without worrying about Candida.
