how to treat a yeast infectionYou’ve included the word “I” in your search for answers. This tells me that you have symptoms that bother, irritate, embarrass you and you want to get rid of them. Congratulations for seeking answers. I’m here to guide you through the overwhelming abundance of information about treating yeast infections on the Internet.

Early on in my search, I stopped and read what a yeast infection expert, Linda Allen had to say. I advise you to do the same: see how she answers the question, how do I get rid of a yeast infection? You’ll find that you can be rid of symptoms within days. But that is only the beginning. It’s good to get the whole story.

Your first step in how do I get rid of a yeast infection can be to rid yourself of symptoms

But if you stop there, the symptoms will probably return. That’s why there is a term called “recurrent yeast infections”  You find many stories on the Internet about how yeast infection sufferers have tried all kinds of solutions only to have their symptoms return. And to make matters worse, symptoms may worsen and increase to include signs that don’t seem related to a yeast infection such as brain fog, fatigue, digestive issues, depression, etc.

This is part of Linda Allen’s story, and she continued to have these symptoms despite her trying many solutions and searching for 7 years. Why is getting rid of the early signs of yeast infections on the first step? Natural remedies or pharmaceutical anti-fungal creams and gels, and antibiotics only provide symptoms relief. They do not address the causes of yeast infection.

How do you address the causes of yeast infection?

The causes include the food you eat, the toxins you’ve accumulated, medicines and antibiotics that you’ve used for various illnesses including yeast infections, the good and bad bacteria or flora imbalance in your gut

Yes, I’m afraid that the complete answer to the question How do I get rid of a yeast infection, isn’t simple but may involve many steps, depending on your state of health.

How do I get rid of a yeast infection? Make different food choices

There is something called an anti-candida diet that gives you an idea of what good healthy food is, especially for someone suffering from a yeast infection. It’s about turning away from processed, fast food and choosing whole foods, organic whenever possible, especially non-starchy vegetables. It also includes whole grains, some nuts and seeds, antibiotic-free and hormone-free meats, humanely raised poultry and eggs from humanely raised chickens, some good oils, etc.

For too many Americans such a change is moving away from what is convenient. But you need only notice that fast foods and processed foods are largely responsible for the alarming level of poor health in our country. Isn’t the rising number of diabetes and obesity in children alarming?

How I get rid of a yeast infection? Start with avoiding sugar

If it’s too difficult to make a radical change, you can begin by reducing the amount of sugar you consume. There are the obvious forms of sugar and the hidden forms in processed foods and beverages in the form of high fructose corn syrup. Today if you’re reading labels it probably means you are looking at processed foods. Or you can just make it simple. Avoid any processed foods as much as possible (pastries, crackers, cookies, etc.) and foodstuff made from white flour.

Just cutting out sugars and white flour from your diet will make such a difference in your health.

Probiotics : another answer to how do I get rid of a yeast infection

Probiotics add good flora or bacteria to your gut. Most natural forms are kefir and yogurt, but the non-sweetened version (remember yeast thrives on sugar). If you shop around please remember there is a big difference between grocery store shelf probiotics and ones that are truly effective.

Yeast overgrowth probably began in the gut but when fed sugars the yeast transformed from a simple cell organism to a mycelial form that is difficult to treat. It moves into the blood stream and then your yeast infection becomes systemic, meaning it bring imbalance other systems in your body.

In our modern industrial society not only do we accumulate the damage from toxins in the air, water and food we consume and are exposed to, but the very pace of our lives creates problems for us physically. Farmers and pioneers who rose with the sun and when to bed with the sun did better. In contrast we keep ourselves awake with light and technology and don’t get enough sleep. The pressures of making a living disturb our peace.

That is why, Linda Allen recommends cleansing and detoxing (from what’s entered our bodies physically) as well as life style changes. All the details are in her book that is readily available to you.
