What's a Yeast Infection and what can you do to get rid off it for good?
These are common questions that more and more people are asking as they try to deal with symptoms that just won't seem to go away.
As distressing as this thought is, the vast majority of people will experience at least one yeast overgrowth infection in their life.
This is especially true of women, although yeast overgrowth is not at all uncommon in men.
The technical term is Candida albicans or Candidiasis. Candida is a type of yeast organism that naturally lives in the body. As long as the immune system is strong, it is quite able to keep the growth of the yeast in check.
Quite often our immune system is compromised by various causes. This allows the yeast to rapidly grow and develop into a condition that causes extremely irritable symptoms.
I'm not going to show you any yeast infection pictures at this point. Depending on where the infection attacks the body it will have a different appearance.
If you think you may have a case of Candida, go over the various yeast infection signs to see if they fit your own symptoms. If you determine that your symptoms fit, you will want to start considering a candida cleanse diet.
One of the good things about a natural candida cleanse is that it is a healthy choice whether your symptoms are from a candida infection or not. Your immune system will benefit from the "cure" either way.
If, in fact, your infection is severe, you may need to try a couple of the remedy options before you find which one is right for you. There is no magic bullet when it comes to healing the human body. Basic principles apply to all of us, but each one of us has different existing strengths and weaknesses.
Almost everyone will get some immediate relief by cutting out all forms of sugar and yeasty foods from their diet.
There's a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid in my candida diet guidelines that will help you starve the yeast to death.
You'll also need to begin reinforcing the army of good bacteria by taking a good quality probiotic. I prefer Florafood.
If your case is mild and you catch it early on, this may be enough for you to get your system back in balance and the infection under control. If yours is more severe, you may consider some of the additional recommendations for a natural candida cure.
Once you win the battle over your yeast (Candida) infection, you'll be amazed at how wonderful you really feel.
To your good health!
