When will the thrush go away? An excerpt from “Ask the Gynecologist” by Jennifer Lincoln

And this is not the whole list.

Long story short: no bread. Sugarfree. Not Cheese.

Most people would agree that there is little joy in such a life. And if you’re suggesting someone go on such a strict diet, it would be nice to have some hard data to show that it’s worth it and that the diet works, right?

However, no such data exists.

As well as strong evidence that this diet protects against vulvovaginal candidiasis (thrush). No, and that’s it. And if this news didn’t piss you off (I repeat: NO CHEESE), then I don’t know what can piss you off.

However, let’s put emotions aside and just talk about sugar. It seems to me that the misconception that sugar makes a person prone to thrush is partly due to the fact that diabetics are more susceptible to such infections. And the conclusion that its cause is an elevated sugar level seems to be logical. However, the truth is that if you, as a non-diabetic, gobble down a mountain of sugar in one sitting, then your body will be able to digest it.

Another reason to argue that following this diet is contrary to logic is the recommendation not to consume products that contain yeast. Most forms of yeast infection are caused by a yeast-like fungus called Candida Albicans, and the yeast found in bread and fermented foods is primarily Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. Yeast is different from yeast, and this is another important sign that you don’t smack of objective scientific data here.

Look, if you want to remove some of the foods from this list for personal reasons, I don’t mind at all. But don’t be fooled, don’t count on getting rid of thrush this way.

All of the above can be taken as permission to eat cheese.
