(Spring Hill, TN)
For years I've suffered with yeast infections, but for the past two months I get bacterial vaginitis and yeast.
My doctor says my menstrual cycle can trigger these symptoms? I also get yeast on my tongue from time to time.
I was told to cut out bread and start a probiotic supplement which I now take everyday. I also now eat organic meats/veg's.
I'm just tired of hearing 50 different things I need to do and not knowing what's truth or crap. If anyone can help, please do...........
I know how frustrating it can be to battle a yeast infection. The probiotics and dietary changes are an important part of helping to allow your body to get back in balance.
I'm not familiar with any reason why your menstrual cycle should trigger a yeast infection, but that doesn't mean it isn't true. ;)
We all have yeast in our body (candida) and the good bacteria in our body is designed to keep it from overgrowing. However, the balance can be tipped in favor of the yeast by exposure to different things like, antibiotics, birth control pills, excessive sugar in the diet, etc.
Since you have been suffering for years with yeast overgrowth, you should really consider an herbal cleanse to get this problem under control and get your body back in balance.
I would suggest that you commit yourself to using Herbal Fiberblend
for 3 full months. HFB has 17 different
anti-parasitic and anti-bacterial herbs that will help with the eliminating and passing the yeast and bacterial vaginitis problems.
You need to take the HFB twice per day mixed in water or juice and drink plenty of water throughout the day.
Try to cut out sugar (and processed foods) for at least a few weeks. You may be able to add back your favorite foods (in moderation) once your body gets this under control, but you'll recover faster if you quite feeding it! :)
Here are some basic Candida Diet Guidelines
that you may find helpful.
If you can afford it, I would also suggest that you take some BarleyLife
each day, too. The clinical nutritionist that I consult with highly recommends the use of BarleyLife when dealing with a yeast overgrowth because it really helps to support the body nutritionally.
I know it's hard to determine what to do when there are so many different recommendations to choose from. All I can say is that you should do your best to understand how the body works and why you have a yeast infection and bacterial vaginitis.
By understanding this, you will realize that cleansing and eliminating the yeast from your body is important, as well as building up your immune system so that it can keep your body in balance.
Hoping you are able to get rid of this uncomfortable and painful systems soon. To your good health!
