If youโ€™ve ever had problems with a yeast infection or a sugar and carb addiction due to yeast overgrowth in the body, youโ€™ll want to keep these herbs for yeast on hand.

Most people donโ€™t know that intense carb cravings and poor insulin management can actually feed a harmful yeast that lives inside all of us, causing it to grow out of control.2

Candida Albicans is the most common known yeast and is an opportunistic fungus (or form of yeast) that can cause fatigue, sugar cravings, irritability, IBS, weight gain, joint pain and gas.

It can also cause a sense of foggy headedness or low energy.

Candida is part of our gut flora, or the microorganisms that live in your mouth and intestines.

When it starts getting out of control it weakens the intestinal wall, penetrates through into the bloodstream and releases toxins in the body, causing yeast overgrowth.2

Probiotics help to fight yeast in the body, along with certain foods and herbs like these magical herbs for yeast.

Youโ€™ll also want to avoid foods that feed the yeast, which is anything that can turn to sugar in the body.2

This means all forms of natural and refined sugars, and all carbs with the exception of plain unsweetened yogurt, non-starchy veggies and low sugar, gluten-free grains.

1. Oregano

Oregano, and oregano oil, is one of the most potent herbs for yeast you can consume.

Oregano contains compounds known as phenols, which help fight bacterial infections, fungus overgrowth and Candida.

It is also rich in antioxidants that fight off infections as well and promote the immune system.

Donโ€™t just sprinkle the herb on your dishes, though that is great too.

Consider taking drops of oregano oil each day or find a supplement containing oregano oil.

2. Pau D'Arco

This specific herb is one of my favorites for a weakened digestive system due to yeast overgrowth.

It is very potent and is often brewed as a tea, though it can be found in supplement form.2

I like to drink this tea once or twice daily to prevent fungal overgrowth.

You can find the tea bags at places like Whole Foods or other local health stores.

It is also available in numerous places online.
