(NaturalNews) Proper management of the digestive system could easily be one of the most important health practices one can do on a day-to-day basis in order to obtain good health. However, a severely compromised food supply and chemical filled world has made it very difficult to achieve that important goal. This in turn has encouraged the overgrowth of digestive disturbances like candida (yeast) overgrowth, which can only be effectively managed by first eliminating these 12 things.

Antibiotics and birth control pills

Antibiotics may be the single biggest cause of candidiasis due to its non-discriminatory killing of "good" intestinal bacteria, as well as "bad" infection-causing bacteria. This alters the balance of intestinal flora and suppresses the immune system, which makes one more susceptible to candidiasis and bacterial infections, which can lead to more antibiotics and the increased growth of candidiasis.

Sugar

Candida thrives on sugar, which makes it one of the more important things to eliminate when dealing with a candida overgrowth. This includes natural sugars found in sweet fruits (such as bananas, oranges, pineapples, peaches, and mangoes), and naturally occurring sugars in honey, molasses, maple syrup, and rice syrup.

Alcohol

Alcohol is high in sugars that can feed a candida overgrowth, and it also puts stress on the immune system, which needs to be healthy in order to eliminate a candida overgrowth. Alcohol like beer and wine are also loaded with glutinous grains and yeast, which further exacerbate the condition.

Gluten

Gluten is incredibly difficult to digest and as a result can create call kinds of digestive disturbances and toxic reactions that feed an improper balance of intestinal bacteria, which fosters candida overgrowth.

Dairy products

Milk contains lactose, a type of sugar that promotes candida overgrowth. Almost all dairy should be avoided, with the exception of ghee and butter. Small amounts of raw, sugar free dairy kefirs and yogurts are sometimes permissible due to lactose being largely consumed during the fermentation process.

Pork and processed meat

Pork contains retroviruses that survive cooking and can be harmful to those with a weakened digestive system. Process meats often contain nitrates, sulfates, and sugars, all which contribute to a candida problem.

Caffeinated beverages

Caffeine can cause blood sugar to rise, weakens the adrenals, and impairs the immune system, which promotes candida overgrowth. Coffee can also contain mold, which is problematic with a fungal infection like candida.

Most seafood

All shellfish and most fish contain high levels of heavy metals and toxins, which repel good bacteria and facilitate a candida overgrowth. Avoid farmed salmon, and stick with wild caught.

Certain nuts

Cashews, peanuts, and pistachios contain a high amount of mold, which can exacerbate an existing fungal (mold) problem like candida.

Beans and other legumes

Beans are very difficult to digest and high in carbohydrates. This puts beans off the list in the early stages of candida elimination. Soy is completely off limits, unless it is organic and fermented.

Mushrooms

If you are suffering from an excessive candida issue, some fungi can cause an inflammatory reaction. However, some medicinal mushrooms like reishi and maitake actually have an antifungal effect and boost the immune system.

Vinegar

Vinegar is made primarily from GMO corn, and is made in a yeast culture. This depletes the stomach of acids and can cause further inflammation in the gut. The only exception is unfiltered apple cider vinegar, which can help combat a candida overgrowth due to its probiotic and enzyme content.

Fats and oils

Peanut, corn, and canola oil are contaminated with mold, and most soybeans used in soy oil are GMO. It should be noted that the corn and canola used in oil are largely GMO as well.
