In general it is more common for women to get yeast infections than men. Detox for Women by Natalia Rose seeks to address the uniqueness of a woman’s chemistry and how their modern lifestyle can easily throw their bodies out of balance.
She believes that when this chemistry is out of balance, it in turn throws the body’s microbial balance off which leaves women prone to Candidiasis. Although the book doesn’t focus on Candida exclusively, but also addresses other health issues and weight loss as well, it offers some good tips that could help women have less yeast infections.
Rose’s plan involves three steps which focuses on starving the yeast through diet and food combining, making a plan, and doing the plan.
Because the author is a raw food advocate, Detox for women also has a large raw foods component to it. Detox for Women offers two different levels of intensity, so the woman can pick the plan that will fit best with her life and needs. The author allows certain treats like dark chocolate and wine to help with feelings of deprivation.
The following are some of the foods are recommended in Detox for women;
Raw vegetables, fresh juices, cooked low starch vegetables, stevia, berries, granny smith apples, grapefruit, avocado, raw goat cheese, organic eggs, dark chocolate, millet, quinoa, buckwheat, Dijon mustard, sea vegetables, raw soy sauce, herb tea.
Detox for Women is a good resource if you’re looking for a program tailored to females. The book also offers 30 days worth of meal plans and recipes to help with the detox. However, the detox detailed in this book may not be extreme enough to clear up really severe cases of Candida overgrowth.
