How You Can Prevent and Cure Yeast Infection Naturally

Be you man or woman you must know that first of all there are conditions that encourage the growth of the infamous Candida Albicans which is the major cause of yeast infection. Most women who suffer from this infection have a big problem with vaginal yeast and other associated problems that come with the infection such as abnormal discharge, itching and so on. Men are also not immune from yeast infection which can infect the mouth, the skin, the intestines or the vagina of a woman. And sometimes a man can be infected with yeast but the symptoms could just be hiding without manifesting for some time.

And so it is important you know that you need to prevent those conditions that favour or encourage the growth of these fungi from growing and multiplying in your body. Usually the germs thrive during the heat or hot weather in the year, and that is why health experts will always advise you to go more with a hundred percent cotton underwear and not nylon which will automatically encourage heat and sweating in your vital areas.
It is important to understand a few things about this infection: yeast is a parasitic fungus and it is naturally present in your body including the vagina of the woman, and experts say it is not harmful on its own. According to Dr. Scott Sullivan, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at the Medical University of South Carolina, "It's ubiquitous in the environment; there's yeast everywhere. It's on our skin; it can be cultured from any place."
The problem is when many yeast cells develop in the area due to a number of factors ranging from high oestrogen levels to use of, or abuse of antibiotics, and even pregnancy. They can all increase your yeast levels thereby giving rise to an infection of yeast - caused most of the time by the one called Candida albicans. Dr. Olufisayo Balogun, a gynaecologist explains that indiscriminate use of antibiotics can very well lead to vaginal acidity, thereby causing you yeast infection.

Some of the popular signs or symptoms of the infections you will notice include – itching sensation and soreness, as well as a burning sensation during urination or sexual intercourse. It is possible also for the lady to observe discharge that is whitish or colourless, and looking like cottage cheese. But sometimes also certain STDs do mimic these signs, so if you’ve not had a yeast infection before, it will be wise to consult with your doctor before treating. But the good news is that you have all around you what you need, and can do - naturally to deal with the issue.
What to do about yeast infection
On a weekly basis therefore, you must be doing something right with yourself and personal hygiene, even as a matter of daily routine. In addition to wearing only cotton underpants you must also ensure to keep them dry and clean for these fungi multiply rapidly in humid and moist environments. The women folk must endeavour to maintain cleanliness particularly around the vagina as a matter of habit.
You have to eat more Probiotics. Experts recommend this as an effective way of warding off yeast infection. You should fall in love with yoghourt because it contains Lactobacillus acidophilus, a beneficial type of bacteria that replenishes the natural peace and harmony of your vital areas e.g. the woman’s vagina. These bacteria go to retain a healthy pH balance in the area while encouraging the growth of other friendly bacteria.
In as much as we know that there isn't any concrete scientific study proving that the consumption of yoghourt deals with yeast or fungal infections, yet lots of women can testify to its efficacy. But as a woman you can see for yourself by taking regularly - natural unsweetened yoghourt; you can also dip your tampon in a little yoghourt before insertion during the middle of your period. This will give your vagina an extra boost of friendly bacteria. On the other hand, a Lactobacillus tablet if rightly placed (in the vagina) say for five weeks, has proven to provide the needed probiotics to effectively deal with the infection.
Research has discovered that extra oestrogen in your body time and again leads increased yeast production. You therefore need to turn away from a birth control that has this hormone and turn to one that has no oestrogen in it if you are prone to yeast infection.  Some of these controls include IUD or progesterone-only pills, but speak with your healthcare provider first.
Every woman must refrain from the temptation of douching and the use of scented feminine hygiene products and soaps, flavoured lubricants and sprays - especially anywhere near the private parts. All of these artificial substances irritate the inside of your vagina and increase the risk of a yeast infection. And, after your bath ensure to keep your sensitive part very dry just to discourage any growth of any remaining germs. Just keep it simple. A woman should in addition, wipe from front to back immediately after toileting, to prevent bacteria from getting to your sensitive parts.
Unsweetened natural Yoghourt
Very importantly, do not forget your natural organic remedy - garlic. This food condiment especially when taken or applied raw is a powerful anti-fungal, antibiotic and antibacterial home remedy you can readily lay your hands on. You can eat it on a regular basis or simply apply it to your precious delicate parts with no problems at all.
You must have heard it said before that sleep is a form of therapy. Sleep will work on your system to enable it stave off attacks of any sorts because it helps to boost your immunity. So take more, or enough restful sleep hours each night or day as this will readily translate into a healthy acidity level in your vagina for instance. It will reduce the rate at which yeast grows in your vagina experts have discovered.

You need to constantly also and lastly, maintain a healthy dietary pattern. In addition to taking probiotics, eat healthy balanced foods as well. Reduce drastically your consumption of especially (processed or simple) sugar because it encourages the growth of yeast. Also be wary of glutinous foods and grains. Experts have also suggested that if you suffer from frequent yeast infections, you should stay away from lots of alcohol and starchy vegetables; reduce also your intake of dairy products excepting probiotic yoghourt.
