Haven’t you noticed that almost all of us live a “sinful” eating habit? It’s quite easy. You do prefer steaks over salads, right? How about that blueberry cheese cake over that yogurt for dessert? Did I mention double pepperoni and cheese over some veggies? Fact is we crave what is almost unhealthy for us. Most of us are voracious eaters and don’t really care what we put in our mouth at times. If we do, it’s because we’ve been diagnosed for an ailment after leading a life of carefree eating. Candidiasis is one ailment that hits the gluttons of eating. Do not laugh as this isn’t a ludicrous statement. Some of us have it without even knowing it. See a doctor.
Candidiasis is a fungal infection that encompasses both superficial and systemic. Candidiasis superficially will cause inflammation and discomfort but what really is the alarming type is the systemic type as this is a potentially life-threatening disease. Symptoms of such vary depending on where is the affected region. Candidiasis can be treated with drugs, pills and creams. What will be asked from you though is a 360 degree lifestyle change. This is unfortunately a must for people suffering from such.
Like many serious ailments, Candidiasis will demand that you eat the right, healthy food and lead a very healthy lifestyle. Say goodbye to guilty pleasure like chocolates and booze. Say hello to yogurts and the like. Vegetables will be an integral part of the diet though not all are given the green light to be munched on. Starchy vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, corn, peas and etc should be avoided. Other than the aforementioned, almost all vegetables are good for the diet. This will suck mold and sugar and starve the fungus of the regular diet that feeds it as they are also low in fat and calories. Vegetables should be taken raw and fresh. This is a good source of dietary fiber and will give us all the extra energy we need for our daily tasks. Protein is also a part of the diet. Beef, chicken and fish are a healthy source of protein. Where is pork? Pigs usually eat dirty things. Enough said.
