Our expert says:
Firstly you must exclude diabetes or medication ( cortisone, hormones ) being the reason. Secondly it may be a good idea to eat an "anti-thrush" diet. To clear an infection, you need to first starve the organism of the foods it thrives on. Candida likes moulds so avoid mushrooms, fermented drinks (including alcohol) and foods that may carry mould. Cut out sugar-rich soft drinks and fruit juices, moderate your intake of tea, coffee and diet drinks and aim for eight glasses of pure water a day to help flush out the bowel.
