Candida feeds on sugar.  Therefore diet has a huge role to play in the treatment of Candidiasis.  Ideally the diet should be sugar free, and yeast free.  It should also be low in carbohydrates.  Ideally your diet should be based on fresh, raw, organic whole foods in season and rotate diet to eat a wide variety of fresh, healthy foods. Nutrients are essential for adequate immune function.
