Thanks for your enquiry. Yes, you've caught me out, I do like wine. But then - I haven't had a yeast infection for over twenty years. Alcohol is very hard on the body, and in fact is probably one of the most damaging things you can even place inside your digestive system. (apart from pharma drugs). While there is merit to consuming the neutral spirits vodka and gin over spirits like rum, whiskey, bourbon, etc. Gin and vodka seem to be OK, be in saying that, I've seen many patients develop their yeast infection all over again after thinking that vodka and gin were perfectly OK to drink post candida yeast infection. Don't make that mistake!
If you do wish to have a drink now and again, be aware that a yeast infection may be closer than you think - unless you make other long-term changes like no sugary foods, confectionery, yeasty breads, etc. Be sure to stay with a probiotic supplement regularly as well.
To be perfectly honest, the healthiest people I know drink NO coffee, tea or alcohol, have a vegan lifestyle, etc. But that's not how I personally choose to live my life, I don't need to be "the healthiest" person in my street, but in saying that - I don't want to be a person who can't say no to alcohol either. I believe in balance and moderation in all things in life, but most importantly, if I notice changes in my body as as result of any dietary or lifestyle indiscretions I may have made I'm not shy of making immediate changes to restore that harmony and balance again. It's good to have periods of time when you drink nothing at all, just water and green tea, smoothies, etc. But then again I also like to go out with friends and have a bottle of wine at times too, I call it being human.
