Our expert says:
Candida is a fungus (not a yeast!) that occurs in the human body in all people. Under certain circumstances we develop so-called Candida infections that need to be treated with antifungals. I do not personally believe that foods play a role in Candida, as some of the leading SA microbiologists have not ever found any link between diet and Candida. It helps to use probiotics or 'good bugs' like Acidoforte by mouth and Vagiforte by vagina (buy at health shops) to help combat the Candida. Your friend should combine this with anti-fungal treatment as prescribed by her dr and a normal balanced diet.
