Sugar causes Candida
Many individuals who are plagued by recurrent Candida infections blame this on sugar intake and embark on sugar-free diets. A careful study of the scientific literature showed that no one has been able to prove that there is a link between sugar intake and repeated Candida infections. Going on sugar-free and other restricted diets to combat Candida starves the patient, but not the fungus. If you do suffer from Candida, obtain antifungal treatment from your doctor, and if it proves resistant, have the organism cultured to see which treatment should be used for resistant strains. Eat a balanced diet than starve yourself of essential foods while you have this type of infection.
