It depends on...: This depends. If you just have vaginal yeast a candida diet is not necessary but if it is recurrent that is usually caused by yeast overgrowth in our intestines, known as intestinal candidiasis, a common side effect of antibiotics ; hormones.This is treated with a low starch diet, probiotics ; antifungal drugs or herbs.
