Tips to Avoid and Treat Candida Yeast Infection
Getting a Candida yeast infection once in a lifetime is too much and if you’re suffering from recurring ones then we have good news for you.
When you understand Candida and how it causes yeast overgrowth which leads to infection, you can begin to eliminate both the symptoms and the underlying cause.
Here are a few tips to get a grip on and eliminate your condition once and for all.
Tip #1 Understand what candidiasis is. Candida is a yeast like fungus which lives in the bodies of all people. It also lives outside our bodies on our skin and in our mucus membranes. It’s normal to have a small amount of yeast. However, when it becomes overgrown that’s when trouble happens.
Tip#2 Candida yeast overgrowth is caused by two primary factors, antibiotics and diet. Antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria which creates a pleasant environment for Candida to grow. Candida are also fueled by sugars and a diet which is high in sugars gives the Candida in your body all they need to go crazy and multiply.
Tip #3 A diet high in fiber will help keep your intestines clean. If you’re constipated the material which collects in your intestines provides a great Candida breeding ground.
Tip #4 Probiotics help. If your mother ever told you to eat yogurt if you had a yeast infection, she was right. Probiotics help create good bacteria in your gut which Candida doesn’t like.
Tip#5 Antifungal treat the symptoms but not necessarily the cause. If you have a vaginal yeast infection then it may make sense to take an antifungal, particularly if the symptoms are difficult to deal with however it’s important to know that if you don’t treat the underlying cause, Candida overgrowth, then you may suffer recurring infections.
Tip#6 The easiest thing to change is your diet. If you’re tired of suffering from yeast infections, the easiest way to put an end to them is to starve the Candida in your body.
That is accomplished by going on a Candida diet – don’t worry this isn’t a year long diet. If your symptoms are mild you can accomplish what you need to in three or four weeks.
Tip #7 Consider a yeast support supplement. Sometimes it helps to have a little extra help to get your body back to normal and to eliminate yeast infections as soon as possible. A yeast support supplement added to your daily routine and combined with a Candida diet is a sure way to get your life back from Candida.
Tip #8 To avoid future bouts of yeast infections, pay close attention to the amount of sugar you’re consuming and listen to your body.
If you start noticing symptoms like fatigue, headaches and a vaginal discharge you know you’ve pushed your body a bit too far and the Candida is beginning to grow. Add yogurt to your diet on a regular basis and eat a diet high in fiber.
Tip #9 If you have to take antibiotics, be sure to modify your diet so Candida doesn’t have the food source it needs to grow. This can be tough because we often crave comfort foods when we’re sick but if you’re knowledgeable, you can make sure you have snacks and comfort foods which don’t promote Candida growth.
Tip #10 Know that certain medications can also cause yeast infections including steroids, birth control pills, and immune suppressants. If you’re on any of these types of medications talk to your doctor and modify your diet to repress Candida growth.
Candida yeast infections cause trouble for millions of women all around the world and believe it or not they affect men too. If you’re one of those millions, take heart, with proper steps you can eliminate the symptoms and the cause.
