(NaturalNews) In a society addicted to sugars, grains, dairy and alcohol, it becomes very difficult to treat the widespread digestive diseases occurring in North America. Add in a tainted and low nutrient food supply; antibiotics and prescriptions; heavy metal intake through dental fillings, vaccinations and environment; and plenty of undue stress and you have created the perfect environment for an inner ecology imbalance commonly known as candidiasis. However, there is hope to win the battle by incorporating these powerful foods into your diet on a daily basis.

Fermented vegetables

In a war being won by pathogenic bacteria, you need to build up your friendly bacteria in order to start taking control of your internal ecosystem so that a proper balance can be maintained. A superior way to do this is through the consumption of fermented vegetables.

Fermented vegetables were a popular way to preserve food for long period of time, but have since become more popular for being an exceptional source of probiotics, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and a way to eliminate toxins, rejuvenate your cells, and strengthen your immune system.

In short, fermented vegetables are a great way to redevelop your inner terrain and create the thriving bacteria required to control and heal a candida overgrowth.

Coconut kefir

Though not as well known as dairy kefirs and kombucha, coconut kefir has received credit as being a staple to helping heal candida infections.

Not only does it introduce beneficial probiotics to your intestinal system, it also helps strip the mucosal layer (often caused by prescriptions) that often prevents the absorption of good bacteria and other life promoting nutrients and lays down a mucosal layer that is more beneficial to the good bacteria.

Besides that, it also aids in the digestion of all foods, cleanses the liver and endocrine systems and contains high levels of minerals that all help heal a candida infection.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is rich in enzymes and helps to naturally regulate the presence of candida in the body. It is a rich source of probiotics, balances your pH, and also helps to strip away the unhealthy gut biofilm that houses all kinds of pathogenic bacteria and parasites and prevents your intestinal system from properly absorbing nutrients.


Garlic is a proven antifungal and has been shown to be effective against candida. In a 1988 study, the growth of candida was found to be markedly inhibited by AGE (aqueous garlic extract). In another article, published by Huntington College of Health Sciences, research clearly showed that garlic has anti-candidal activity, inhibiting both the growth and function of Candida Albicans.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is a very versatile fat that contains three different fatty acids (caprylic acid, capric acid, and lauric acid) that have all been found to be effective against candida.

For those suffering from candida, the most important ingredient is caprylic acid. This potent antifungal kills candida yeast cells by interfering with their cell walls. Capric and lauric acid have similar effects, creating a dynamic combination of antifungal treatments that results in less likelihood of resistance.

There are plenty of other foods and herbs to consider in your anti-candida diet, including oregano oil, pau d'arco, aloe vera, and cloves. The key is to mix it up to stay ahead of the adapting candida, until you can create and maintain a proper intestinal flora balance, primarily through probiotic and enzyme rich foods.
