A common question that is asked is do I have to stay on this candida diet
forever? No, you don't. But chances are that you will in some form or
another because after the yeast infection is gone you are going to feel so
good that you will not want to go back. At least that is how I feel about
it. When your yeast infection has been eradicated by the candida diet and
the natural treatments listed on the treatment page, you can then start
reintroducing foods back into your diet. But I would carefully keep a record
of how they make you feel, then you must decide if they are worth it or not.
|Since we have
these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything
that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence
