In my opinion, fluconazole is a pretty useless medicine for most people. Nearly all patients I’ve seen with recurring Candida have been on fluconazole. When I gave a presentation on women’s yeast infections to a group of 300 doctors, many of them admitted to me after that talk that fluconazole wasn’t helpful in most cases.
When I see clients, I recommend they consider natural alternatives to fluconazole. Often fluconazole will initially knock back the Candida, but then the yeast promptly comes back. I had one patient who was on fluconazole for 10 years every day, and still, the yeast wasn’t eradicated. Six months after reading my book and implementing my recommendations, the client’s vaginal yeast infection was eradicated.
Natural alternatives to fluconazole include garlic, grapefruit seed extract, and oregano. I think a broad range of different antimicrobials is particularly useful for recurrent vaginal yeast infections. Thankfully, Candida doesn’t become resistant to natural products.

I had one viewer who tried to treat her vaginal yeast infection by eating a 100% meat-only diet. I’m not a big fan of that kind of diet because it leads to a build-up of ammonia, urea, and other toxins. A diet that is heavy in meat also leads to constipation. I suspect eating that much meat would also lead to deficiencies and digestive problems. At the very least, some brown rice and vegetables should be added to the plate. You don’t need to fear vegetables and grains when it comes to Candida. Adding some variety to your diet is going to help your gut quite a lot.
