 Nutritional Programs: Nutritional Program for Candidiasis 
The overgrowth of yeast in the intestinal tract was mentioned in the section on grapefruit seed extract. It can lead to a variety of symptoms as a result of the toxins that yeasts produce (mycotoxins). These symptoms are the result of allergy or toxins, not yeast in the blood stream or organs. It is sometimes difficult to reduce the intestinal yeast population but there are several dietary supplements that can help.

In addition to the supplements, it is important to reduce dietary and medical sources of yeast growth stimulants, such as antibiotics, hormones, and a high intake of sugar. Hormones or antibiotics may be necessary for medical reasons, but the resulting yeast overgrowth needs to be controlled. Of course, refined, white sugar is always avoidable, with a little determination, if you really want to keep it out of your diet.

Although they may be combined with medications when indicated, the following supplements are commonly used to help control the yeast overgrowth:

Grapefruit seed extract 2 2
Lactobacillus acidophilus capsules 2 2
Garlic (deodorized) 500 mg 2 2
GLA 240 mg (as borage oil) 1 1

I often recommend a mixture of Lactobacillus acidophilus with the Bifidobacterium bifidum, either in capsule or powder form. This combination helps both the large and small intestines. The dose of powder is usually ½ tsp twice per day at the start of treatment and ¼ tsp twice per day after some improvement. In addition to these specifics, I would recommend that you take the usual general health supplements and immune enhancers such as the following:

Basic Multiple Formula 3 3
Vitamin C 1000 mg 3 3
Pyridoxine (B6) 250 mg 1
Magnesium aspartate 200 mg 1 1
Vitamin E 400 IU 1
Echinacea 250 mg 2 2

These supplements and several others may be indicated for the management of various symptoms that people with candidiasis often experience. It is important to have a proper diagnosis, in case your symptoms are from other causes.
