Our expert says:
There is no solid evidence that cutting out certain foods will actually improve candida infections in various parts of the body. You need to have antifungal treatment including an antifungal cream for your poor throat. Candida is a microorganism or fungus that is present all over our bodies and it only starts to take over and flourish when our natural resistance and immunity is depleted by factors such as stress, antibiotic treatments for other infections, vitamin and mineral deficiencies (which will get worse if you start cutting out all kinds of foods), use of hormone treatments (female hormones and corticosteroids), etc. I would advise you to have a thorough medical checkup to see if you don't have an underlying health problem which is making the situation worse (e.g. insulin problems), to use antifungal treatment, to consult a clinical dietitian (Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian) and to start taking 'good' microorganisms such as Acidoforte (buy at chemist) and using Vagiforte (also buy at health shops) for the vaginal thrush.
