I am free of chronic yeast infections affecting my internal vulvae tissue. I have used anti yeast pill , like Diflucan on and off for years if I had the vaginal yeast issues with discharge. I am talking about a different type of yeast infection. It lives inside the vulvae tissues. No discharge, just burning. I never though of diet until I saw a different OB/Gyn doctor who said the key to killing yeast is starving it. Yeast needs sugar to live. I resisted doing this for a year. Then I came across an old book at a library sale by Dr. William Crook, "The Yeast Connection". Simple and straight forward and not complicated like other anti-yeast anti-inflammation diets. I followed his 2 month yeast detox diet and have been so successful I will follow it for life. Going on 5 months now. After the 2 month kill off it is less restrictive, but still no processed sugar or gluten for life. Also limited gluten free carbs and limited foods containing natural sugar like fruit. The 2 month detox is brutal. Zero carbs and zero sugar both processed and in foods like fruit. After 6 weeks the chronic swollen, red and burning vulvae became normal tissue again. Yes, lots of meat, fish, poultry and vegetables
Amazing results after decades of issues. I would tell myself while depriving myself of food, "When will you learn it's going to make you burn"?
No money for drug companies to market a deprivation diet. Plus I kid you not, you will need will power. I never went on a food restriction diet in my life as I never had a weight problem and was surprise how hard it was. Even with a full stomach of healthy foods you crave the sugars and carbs.
I do believe one has to be miserable to have the will power to experiment with diet change
