Dr Oz 3 Step Plan to Fight Exhaustion from Yeast Overgrowth
Dr. Elizabeth Boham said it is possible to heal your gut and get your energy back from a yeast overgrowth. All it takes is following three simple steps and making a few small changes to your diet.
- For 2 weeks: Cut out foods like cookies, soda, alcohol and anything with sugar.
- For 2 weeks: Cut back on refined carbohydrates, like white breads, pastas and cereals.
- Add in foods like sauerkraut and kimchi to boost the amount of good bacteria in your gut.
- Add in foods like kale, asparagus, broccoli, tomatoes and other foods that are high in fiber. You can get more fiber from foods like nuts, seeds, brown rice and quinoa as well.
- Take a Probiotic Supplement: Dr. Boham said it is important to take a probiotic supplement if you already have a yeast overgrowth problem because it will bring back good bacteria to balance out the bad bacteria and it will improve your digestive system. While eating yogurt is usually recommended by Dr. Oz, he said this time a probiotic supplement is needed.
- When taking the supplement look for 25 billion total Bifico/Lacto cultures.
- Add more anti-fungal herbs to your diet.
- Eat one to two raw garlic cloves per day.
- Thyme Oil tincture: Take 1 to 3 milliliters orally, three times a day.
- Thyme oil can be applied directly to an infection, like in the case of Athlete’s Foot.
