Greek yogurt is very good, but you’ve got to find the right Greek yogurt, that’s the problem. Not all Greek yogurts are alike.
Make sure that when you get yogurt that it’s a good sour yogurt without any high fructose corn syrup in it, without any aspartame in it, or any other artificial sweeteners. Be very careful when choosing the yogurt you’re going to eat as part of your Candida cleanse. Read labels. Talk to the manufacturer. Check out their website.
Many people make their own yogurts don’t make it correctly and end up with gut problems. Often high quality commercially made good sour Greek yogurt is fine.

A subscriber recently told me that what I’m saying is incorrect. He said, “You’re telling people to avoid cow’s milk, but you’re telling them that yogurt’s okay. What’s wrong with you, mate?” My response is that when you have yogurt, the lactose is consumed during the culturing process. The casein is still present in yogurt, which is important to know because casein is the primary allergen in milk.
For many people, the advantages of yogurt outweigh the disadvantages provided they incorporate it at the right pace and that the yogurt is high-quality.
If you’re having a problem with Greek yogurt, switch to coconut yogurt for the first three months. And then slowly incorporate the Greek yogurt. One of my patients made a very interesting observation. She started with the coconut yogurt, and in a period of about three to six months, she went from 100% coconut yogurt to 100% cow’s milk yogurt. She transitioned slowly going from 100% coconut yogurt to 50/50 to 25/75, and then finally to eating “pure” Greek yogurt. This client experienced no gut problems with slowly introducing the Greek yogurt.
In my opinion, the best time for having yogurt is before bedtime. Just have a small bowl to start. I suggest starting with a single tablespoon. You can work yourself up to two or three tablespoons. You don’t need a lot of yogurt to benefit your gut.
