Yeast Free Diet! Cure for vaginal yeast infection??
To learn more about this awful situation I've been dealing with for almost 9 months go to my first thread "Chronic vaginal irritation for several months! Help!" Long story short, I've been suffering from a chronic intense itch/burning sensation internally/externally of my vagina and even on my anus and slight abnormal discharge. Anyway I wrote this additional post to discuss the "yeast free diet." Eating a "yeast free diet" is meant to inhibit growth of yeast within the body. I've read from many sources that a yeast free diet will help me cure my vaginal yeast infection so the last couple of days I've been experimenting by following this diet, especially avoiding sugars and starch. I even heard from other ladies on here that this is an affective treament. I feel so happy to say that within only the last couple of days, I've noticed slight relief with my symptoms while following this diet and taking Fluconazole! My itching seemed to have slightly decrease and is not as intense! I want to continue to follow this diet but it is very hard to do. Especially for me because I am a college student who lives on campus so I only have the option to eat the school cafeteria food (I never cook my own food here). Therefore I have limited options and I never know the ingredients that is used. So far I have been eating eggs, meet, veggies, salad, nuts etc. I've researched what foods specifically to avoid and what to eat so I'm pretty sure I am well informed. But I would love to hear from others who dealt with a similar situation. Does anyone know a lot about this diet or tried it before? Does anyone recommend any specific alternative foods that I dont have to make myself? Has anyone been cured by following this diet who suffered a vaginal yeast infection? I'm praying that by taking the Fluconazole and following this diet, I will be able to knock this chronic issue out! Thank you for reading!
