What Kind Of Yogurt Is Good For Candida?

August 17, 2019

Thank you for checking out my video. I’m going
to talk about yogurt today, yogurt and Candida, and some of the best types of yogurts to eat.
Be very careful when you consider to include yogurt into your daily dietary regime to improve
your health, particularly if you have Candida. The reason being is a lot of commercial yogurts
are really crap. They contain a lot of artificial sugars and even just straight sucrose itself.
There’ll be artificial colors, flavorings, all sorts of things added to it. The small
little pots that you buy, in general, are not really good.
My recommendations are for you to go to the health food shop and buy a good sour natural
acidophilus yogurt without any kind of ingredients added to it at all, particularly one made
from organic milk or cows that have been raised on pasture, grass fed cows without using hormones
or antibiotics. Sometimes you need to go to a good health food shop to buy these. And
if you’ve got access to whole fat cow’s milk straight from the cow, you may know someone
who has a cow or go to a farm where you can actually purchase this milk, this makes fantastic
yogurt. There are many different yogurt recipes online you can find, so making your own yogurt
takes a little bit of time and commitment, but it’s well worth it. You start with a very
good small amount of sour starter culture, and it’s quite simple to make. Just follow
the recipes. There are many, many benefits to eating yogurt.
And in my book, in fact, I wrote several pages on the 20 benefits of eating yogurt. You might
be able to find some of my writing on regarding the amazingly powerful qualities
of a good quality yogurt when it comes to Candida.
The lactose or the sugar has been converted into lactic acid. And if you buy some of the
commercial varieties, you’ll find that not all of the lactose has been converted, so
there’ll still be some milk sugars potentially in there. And also, you’ll often find NutraSweet
or aspartame in these so-called yogurts through the supermarket, so I’d probably discourage
you from buying the commercial yogurt, the fruity ones with all the sugars in them, rather
buy the sour one. And you can grate some green apple and put that in there. You can add some
blueberries to your yogurt. That’s quite okay. When you start with yogurt, you add a small
amount in your diet on a regular basis to begin with. Don’t take too much in. This can
cause bloating and flatulence and even nausea with some people if they’ve got a lot of bad
bacteria. Slowly include this into your diet, small amounts to start with, and gradually
build up until you can have like a small bowl per day, very good. Yogurt, I think, is best
consumed in the evening or in the morning. Try to have it a bit away from meals. Empty
tummy is good to have it. When you do this regularly, you’ll find huge
benefits from taking yogurt in. Your immune system will be powered up significantly. A
good time to incorporate yogurt also is in the summertime because you can make drinks
out of it. You can mix it with water. It’s quite tasty and very refreshing. And by taking
in yogurt regularly through the latter part of summer and into fall, by the time you’re
going into wintertime, you’ll have a very powerful immune system because the cultures
help to confer a lot of immune benefits as well.
There are many reasons why you want to consider yogurt in your life. It’s one of the premier
foods to eat when you have a yeast infection. And don’t be too concerned about milk allergies
because you shouldn’t really have a problem if you start with small amounts and gradually
build up and see how you go. I hope this answers your questions about yogurt
that you might have and what type to get. Avoid the commercial ones and get a good organic
sour one. Thanks for tuning in.

    Erik I respectfully disagree that yogurt or kefir should be consumed by any yeast infection sufferer. Being one myself previously, I tried eating very high quality, plain organic yogurt and kefir as part of my daily diet for years and could not shake my infection no matter what I did. As soon as I removed yogurt and all other dairy products completely, my healing sped up quite significantly and allowed my body to fully heal after 4 long years. This is also the view of the Chinese, who believe all forms of dairy including yogurt, kefir, etc should be eliminated from the diet, especially if the body is showing signs of internal dampness (yeast infection being one of them). I truly believe dairy of any kind should not be a part of an adult humans diet as it is not what nature intended. I truly believe dairy of all kinds needs to be removed from the diet to achieve full healing.
