Penn Herb Wellness Guide
- Eat foods low in refined carbs and sugars
White flour, refined sugars, and fruit juices may help yeast grow in the intestine, so cut them out of your diet
- Try some beneficial bacteria
Take a probiotic supplement that contains 10 billion colony-forming units a day of acidophilus or bifidobacteria to control yeast in the intestine
- Check out antifungal supplements
To reduce yeast in the intestine, try caprylic acid (1,500 mg a day), supplemental garlic (5,000 mcg a day of allicin potential in an enteric-coated supplement), or oregano oil (0.2 to 0.4 ml a day of a coated supplement)
- Get a doctor’s opinion
Tests can help you make sure your symptoms are not the result of another health problem
- Avoid eating foods like bread and cheese, which contain yeast and mold
Eliminating these types of foods may reduce possible reactions due to sensitivities
