When you search on the Internet for solutions for how to treat yeast infections you will find many cures or remedies described. It can be overwhelming to decide what you need to do to rid yourself of the irritating symptoms that you are experiencing from an overgrowth of yeast. In addition, if you then understand that yeast infections is candida overgrowth you’ll get at least twice the information.
Here is a quick solution: Are you willing to give the time to get a thorough briefing on yeast infections or candida right now? You have this chance to learn from Linda Allen, a recognized expert on the subject
This article is written to help you navigate through the volume of advice on the Internet. Or, even shorten your search for the information you need for treatment of candida or yeast infections.
You will find important information and outstanding resources to help you treat your yeast infections throughout these pages.
My bias: it’s better to address the causes of some disorder rather than the symptoms.
What kind of priority do you give to your health?
Most of us don’t make health important until an illness or injury disrupts our normal living. In addition, many people give their healthcare professionals responsibility for getting them well when they’re sick.
But you aren’t one of those people, aren’t you, because you wouldn’t be on the Internet looking for information if you just depended solely on your doctor/nurse. Good for you!
In addition to taking responsibility for your health you will need to be open-minded and discerning. When you study how to treat yeast infections you will learn that it’s not simply a matter of a case of vaginal irritations or thrush in the mouth.
No, yeast infections can become systemic, meaning that the yeast or fungus can enter the blood stream, thus affecting many areas of your body. Other symptoms you have, not usually associated with a yeast infection, may actually be due to candida or yeast overgrowth:
· brain fog
· digestive problems
· joint pain,
· and many more symptoms
Don’t treat only yeast infection symptoms, address the causes
As you take responsibility for your health and well-being, you learn the advantage of seeing symptoms such as a yeast infection as an alarm from your body that something is out of balance. If you don’t get the bigger picture, you reach for some over-the-counter solution to help you get rid of vaginal symptoms.
Don’t get me wrong, such easily purchased gels, creams and suppositories may work to get rid of symptoms…temporarily. However, there are precautions you should be aware of.
If such a quick solution works so you never experience a yeast infection again, you are lucky. Whatever was out of balance found a correction… somehow. But if these symptoms reoccur and/or are frequent, you may come to realize that you have to look at the cause of this imbalance that may include: diet, lifestyle, health of your immune system and of your intestinal track, etc.
Treating one cause: What you eat–your diet
Our body has a natural alkaline balance that is healthy. When our body becomes overly acidic, illness strikes. Now since everything we eat has a pH value indicating acidity or alkalinity so food choices are important for health.
Sugar in its many forms is acidic and is probably a major culprit in damaging the balance of yeast especially in our gut/our intestines. When sugar in a natural form is consumed as in fruits it isn’t so much of a problem. However, sugar is also found in high fructose corn syrup found in so many processed foods from sodas to all manner of common snacks such as candies and cookies.
American consumers can be unwittingly and easily consumed so much sugar in these forms. And yeast feeds on sugar.
Besides sugar acidity increases with the consumption of salt, meats, coffee, teas, beer, spicy foods, etc. and alkalinity aided by nuts, soy, vegetables. You can see how easy it is to have our pH balance move in the wrong direction if you don’t pay attention to your food choices and eat as most Americans eat.
Therefore, to prevent or treat yeast infections, diet plays an important part. There are anti-candida diets available that address this aspect of treating yeast infections.
How do antibiotics make you vulnerable to yeast infections?
One cause of yeast infections is the use of antibiotics. This is because antibiotics attack both good and bad flora in your gut in the effort to destroy what is causing your illness.
The often heard recommendation to consume unsweetened plain yogurt if you’re taking antibiotics is meant to re-populate the intestines with L. acidophilus, a friendly bacteria.
One often cited way to naturally treat vaginal yeast infections is to apply yogurt topically as well as to eat it. But there is more to the story, as you will learn.
Other Important Factors in How to Treat Yeast Infection Thoroughly
Unless you want to only treat the symptoms you need more than anti-fungal products such as commonly found over-the-counter at your favorite drugstore.
Powerful effective probiotics (more than in yogurt) are needed to restore health to the gut/intestines.
Supplements that are designed to fortify and support the immune system are also needed because a compromised immune system is another “cause” of the overgrowth of yeast.
