According to the Internal Medicine department at the Mayo Clinic, common symptoms of intestinal candida overgrowth are fatigue, headache and poor memory. Uncomfortable to talk about, but discuss these issues with your doctor. Intestinal overgrowth of the fungus-like organism Candida albicans, or yeast syndrome is far more common than you think. To cure the syndrome, the Mayo Clinic recommends a candida cleanse diet, which includes no cheeses, no sugar, no yeast, and no white flour. These foods, in theory, promote candida overgrowth. You may consider the Paleo Diet, as it contains similar foods and most find it easier to follow. Most supermarkets have tabs that let you know it is "Paleo Safe"
The Enemy in White Flour & GAPS Diet
When this diet is followed close for at least two weeks, the majority, notice a vast improvement. By stopping the consumption of white flour ( White flour is a highly refined substance that is used in a variety of processed foods and baked goods because it is light, airy and cheap. Unfortunately, refined white flour is completely stripped of its nutrient value, with virtually no vitamins, minerals, or fats to speak of) you are essentially remove carbs and a lot of calories. So basically you need to
replace processed foods with fresh foods
replace white flour with whole grains
Within a few weeks you will have stopped the growth of yeast in the GI tract, thus complete the candida cleanse diet.
