The Candida Cleanse

Before you start your candida diet, it’s always best to start off with a  good and thorough cleansing of your system. By doing a cleanse, you will be getting rid of the candida yeast and cleaning all the debris from your system. The candida cleanse can be quite strict, so be prepared to tough it out!

Restrict your diet to steamed veggies and raw salads only – with lots of fresh filtered water. It may seem hard at first but keep in mind that it’s only for a few days – 5 days at most! You may experience some side effects after detoxing for a few days - such as headaches, nausea or dizziness. This is quite normal and part of the detox process, continue and you will feel fine again.

Eating fresh, raw and 100% organic fruit and vegetables and drinking filtered water will provide your body with an effective cleanse to help you to feel healthy, refreshed and rejuvenated again.

By now we all know that yeast sugar thrives on yeastsugar, so cut out sugar in all its forms from cakes, pastries, desserts and sweets. Don’t forget to also reduce complex carbs such as potatoes, beans, fruit, bread and pasta.

There are a number of ways to add flavour to veggies using herbs, spices, oils and lemon juice. You may even want to try Feelgood Health’s Detox Drops which is- a natural remedy to eliminate toxins from the body and kick start the new you for better health!
