Changing your Lifestyle to Manage Candida

Candida is an opportunistic fungus that lives in small numbers harmlessly on most humans, but given the right conditions will seize the chance to overgrow and become a problem to your health. Knowing how to manage, prevent or even treat yeast infections or internal overgrowth is not just about taking an anti-fungal treatment, it is about knowing what the root causes are and making some changes. One thing you can consider is changing your lifestyle to manage candida.

Factors about your lifestyle that can cause a yeast infection

  • Poor diet too high in sugars, refined foods, alcohol, poor nutrition
  • Clothing that is too tight and/or made of synthetic fibers
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • pH imbalance
  • Internal flora imbalance
  • Birth control pills
  • Over reliance on antibiotics

Changing your lifestyle to manage candida – steps you can take
Stress
This raises levels of cortisol in your body which raises your blood sugar. Candida feeds on sugar so being stressed feeds the fungus and can make you more prone to infection. Learn relaxation techniques, consider doing meditation or deep breathing exercises, getting massaged, saunas or steam baths can also help. Saunas can also help you sweat out some of the toxins that the candida releases in you. Exercise is also a good way to manage stress and keep at a healthy weight.

Diet
Sugar is a food source for the candida, so cut that out of your diet and you will starve the candida. Remember refined carbohydrates like white pasts and bread also turn to sugar once eaten so should be avoided, along with other types of sugar like honey, syrup, fructose, glucose, brown, corn, alcohol. Other foods some candida diets suggest you avoid include dairy, yeast, fungi, and keep in mind fruits have natural sugars in them. Being overweight or underweight makes you more likely to have problems with candida and you need to get enough nutrients from the fresh greens and organic foods you eat. You can also change the pH of your body by changing the foods that you eat. Avoid acidic foods and eat lots of vegetables that are more alkaline.

Sleep
Sleep is not just so that you feel rested and recharged it also has a direct impact on your immune system. If you are not getting enough sleep your body is not having time to do its maintenance including removing wastes and repairing. While you may be able to function okay on 6 hours of sleep really your body needs at least 8 hours, some up to 10 hours each night.

Probiotics
Your gut when healthy has billions of good bacteria that help your immune system and play various important roles including controlling your candida population. If something has affected your flora you may want to take probiotic supplements to replenish those good bacteria.
