    What diet changes should I make for yeast/fungle overgrowth?

    Primal Fuel
    Hey guys.

    I'm 95% paleo. I need to step things up and get rid of this. For two years it has caused nasty food intolerances. I just started taking lauracidin again and wondered if there's much diet changes or foods I should take to help fight it.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Is this an internal gut overgrowth, or external on the body somewhere?

    Coconut oil is a well-known anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Start out with a very small amount daily (less than a teaspoon) and GRADUALLY work your way up to a tablespoon or more per day. Too much too soon can result in a bacterial die-off, which can have some very unpleasant symptoms.

    Other things you might want to look into: oil of oregano, raw manuka honey, lemon, garlic/onions/leeks (juicing these might be worth looking into). I would also avoid products made with yeast until the issue has been sorted out.

    Good luck!

    Internal. The food intolerances are getting to the point of unbearable. Nearly all foods make me feel sick.

    Cut out the sugar and the excess carbs. Yeast and fungi love sugar.

    Have you seen a doctor? If you've cut all sugar for a year and still have a yeast overgrowth in the gut, that's very concerning. It should have died off. You may need medication, or it may not be yeast.

    You might not eat sugar via direct routes - but what about from indirect sources such as condiments?

    I would suggest doing some research on the Candida Diet. Many of the suggests work well with Primal eating - PLAIN yogurt, extremely low carbs (no rice, potatoes, corn, beets) early on before gradually reintroducing in limited amounts, definitely NO YEAST bread or products, etc.

    This is a very valid point. There are a lot of things that could be causing the symptoms.

    While I understand that candida overgrowth is a real medical condition it is also really rather rare. A prolonged stint on hospital strength antibiotics can lead to it for instance.

    Candida overgrowth, despite being very rare, seems to be the diagnosis du jour of a lot of holistic practitioners of of various levels of credibility and also massively self-diagnosed via websites.
