Eating bread causes yeast infections?

This may be a stupid question, but nearly everything I've been reading says that cutting bread from your diet will help you get rid of a yeast infection. Why is this? Isn't bread made with a different kind of yeast? And I understand why eating too much sugar might cause an infection in someone who has diabetes, but why in an otherwise healthy person?

I don't really understand the Candida diet (it seems to be really unhealthy too), and the doctors I've been to haven't mentioned anything about diet and yeast at all.

Re: Eating bread causes yeast infections?

I personally believe, as most medical doctors believe, that the Candida diet is nonsense.

It may be that keeping your blood sugar level by avoiding large quantities of white starch and refined sugar will help, but there's no need for extreme dietary changes.

Eating bread will not cause a yeast infection. Not only is it a different yeast, the yeast in bread was killed off during the baking process.

Re: Eating bread causes yeast infections?

Ah, thank you! That is what I thought. It's interesting that almost all internet sites promote/support the candida diet. I've only found one website that says eating bread doesn't cause yeast infections.

Re: Eating bread causes yeast infections?

When it comes to internet sites, you kind of need to consider the source. A random unknown person (like me, for example) is not a reliable source.

If you don't know the source, then just use common sense.
