Modern Living Triggers Yeast Infections In Many Different Ways
Candida is the scientific name for single cell microbes found in the most areas of the body: the intestines, the genitals, the mouth etc.
These microbes are kept in-check by beneficial bacteria and a healthy immune system. But a combination of certain conditions can wreck this healthy balance.
Candida can grow out of control and take on a root-like structure… damaging the mucous membranes of the gut. Invading the bloodstream… and causing yeast infection.
Common Triggers For A Yeast Infection
Overuse of antibiotics
Antibiotics are one of the leading causes of yeast infection.
Antibiotics are taken to kill unwanted bacteria in the body… but it also kills off the good bacteria (the microbiome) thereby leading to bacteria imbalance… which upsets the vaginal ecosystem.
Most chemicals upset the bacterial balance in the vagina which triggers yeast overgrowth. Chemicals like inks, dyes, perfumes and even soaps which may not only encourage yeast infection but also damage the mucus membranes.
Several of the condoms in the market today contain nonoxynol-9 in the lubricant. This is a spermicidal chemical which is added to the lubricant. However, many studies have shown that nonoxynol-9 can often lead kill off beneficial bacteria needed to maintain a healthy vagina.
Eating high-sugar foods will encourage a yeast overgrowth. Candida, the fungus that causes yeast infection, loves to feed on sugar.
Natural Remedies For Yeast Infection
Pau d’arco is a herb that comes from the native Bignoniaceae tree commonly found in South America. This herb helps to regulate the overgrowth of yeast in the body.
If you can get this herb in liquid form, you can take it as a tincture either orally or applied topically.
The typical dosage is a quarter teaspoon per day. But if you are applying this externally, then dosage can be increased.
Calendula is a plant classified in the daisy family. It came from the Macaronesia East, through the Mediterranean to Iran… and today has become one of the most praised herbs with various medical benefits.
You may have heard about calendula in facial products; it is used as herbal remedies to heal wounds and soothe skin. But it is also a great home remedy for yeast infection when taken internally as a tincture.
This is specially one of the best treatments for new moms who develop yeast infection in their breast while breast feeding.
Borax acid is a substance that has mild antiseptic and antifungal properties.
If borax 6x is used at the first sign of symptoms, it can be really effective at controlling yeast overgrowth.
Doctors recommend the use of borax 6x for infections that failed to respond to other medications and for reoccurring infections.
Warning: don’t use this treatment if there are open wounds in the vagina or if you are pregnant.
Palmarosa oil an essential oil with incredible health benefits.
It is produced from the same tropical grass family as lemongrass and contains excellent skin care properties.
It contains geraniol, citronellal, citral, farnesol, limonene, dipentene, and geranyl acetate. It can be used in a mixture with a commercial yeast infection cream.
Ideally, 4 drops of palmarosa oil would be enough to enhance the efficacy of the cream.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is an antibacterial, anti-yeast, and antifungal oil.
It helps to soothe fungal infections with typical symptoms of yeast infection.
To achieve the best result with this oil, it is best applied twice a day, in the morning and bedtime.
Apple Cider vinegar (ACV) bath
Apple cider vinegar bath is a popular natural cure for yeast infection.
ACV is a form of vinegar made from apples and it comes with a whole lot of health benefits, from skin-care benefits to body pH regulation.
To take an apple cider vinegar bath, prepare lukewarm water and add 2 cups of apple cider vinegar. Make sure that the ACV you use contains a probiotic called ‘the mother’.
Soak yourself in the bath for about 20 minutes. This will help provide some immediate relief from the symptoms of yeast infection while controlling yeast overgrowth.
You may also want to take apple cider vinegar douche about 2 to 3 times a week; however, the dosage should depend on the seriousness of your symptoms.
Eat Plain (unsweetened) Yogurt
Before you think of yogurt, it is important to remember that yeast feeds on sugar… so any yogurt with added sugar is not a good idea when you have yeast infection.
This is why you need to double check and make sure you are using a plain or preferably organic yogurt for this.
Yogurt contains probiotic properties and thus helps to boost the healthy bacteria in the vagina while killing yeast.
For immediate relief from severe symptoms apply yogurt topically inside and around the vagina. during the day.
A Healthy Microbiome
The microbiome is a cluster of good bacteria found in the gut that helps maintain a long list of body functions…
From keeping you slim to strengthening your immune system… the microbiome also prevents yeast infections.
Probiotics are the same kind of good bacteria that keeps the microbiome healthy.
The two most researched strains of probiotics that promote optimum vaginal health are: Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bacillus Coagulans.
Modern day living kills off our good bacteria (microbiome)… and the space left behind in your gut gets filled with bad bacteria and fungus…
An overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungus wrecks havoc on your health, waistline… and promotes yeast infections.
Former Yeast Infection Sufferer Reveals… How To Naturally Treat Candida Infections…
Using A Unique 5-Step Method No One Else Will Tell You About…
What is the Yeast Infection No More System?
Yeast Infection No More is a clinically proven 5 step multi-dimensional Candida overgrowth healing system that has been polished and perfected over 12 years of research trial and error.
It is a laser targeted combination of powerful series of protocols set in a unique order and timing aimed at eliminating Candida overgrowth, restoring your intestinal balance and thus helping you gain permanent freedom from all types of yeast infections in all levels of severity.
You see, Candida overgrowth is a serious condition that can lead to dangerous health complications if left untreated. When Candida albicans shifts from non-pathogenic to pathogenic form, it produces root-like structures called rhizoids, that penetrate the intestinal walls and create holes in the walls of the intestines.
This enables toxic waste, bacteria and undigested food to enter the blood stream causing many often dangerous conditions such as:
- Leaky gut syndrome
- Severe rashes
- Brain fog
- Acid reflux
- Memory loss
- Joint pain
- Severe inflammation
- Yeast in the sinuses and lungs
This can have a negative effect on our brain and can significantly interfere with our biochemical processes.
That’s why Linda Allen, medical researcher, speaker and author from Irvine, California (USA) had put together the 5-step Yeast Infection No More system to share this important information. After suffering from systemic yeast infections for more than a decade and after 12 years of research, trial and error, Linda has helped over 143,958 women and men in 157 countries worldwide to discover the key to restoring intestinal balance, eliminating candida overgrowth and achieving permanent freedom from all types of yeast infections.
