Yeast Infections

by | Dec 4, 2014 | Uncategorized

Women know the ever dawning burden of screaming sensation that edges onto hysteria by burning, stinging, itching ‘pleading with bargains to the universe for relief’; the common yeast infection.

When faced with dealing with a yeast infection, there’s a lot to take into awareness and much to work with. Food choices are critical: avoiding sugary foods, eating plenty of green vegetables along with quality protein and staying well hydrated.

Supplements that can be useful are strong oral, vaginal (ovules and creams) probiotics; choosing products that contain human sourced strains can make the difference for a longer period of time. The probiotics are essential for the restoration of healthy mucosal flora.

To support the body’s defense and destroy the yeast overgrowth, the herb pau d’arco is an effective anti-fungal. Combined with caprylic acid (to help break down the cell wall of the yeast) and garlic, these two are a fine duo for combating yeast infections. A simple way to incorporate these ingredients can be to thinly slice garlic on toast buttered with coconut oil and enjoy with the vegetable topping of choice.

The above can be used safely in conjunction with over the counter products.
