Natural Yeast Infection Control
Yeast infections can be a real hassle for women. And, if left untreated, yeast infections may become systemic which creates more than a hassle. Systemic yeast infections can produce a wide array of symptoms, ranging from merely uncomfortable symptoms to those that can interfere with daily function.
Systemic yeast infections may affect the skin, the digestive system, mental health and even behavior.
Just a few symptoms candida overgrowth may cause:
Joint pain, Anxiety, Depression, Hyperactivity, Itching, Acne, Hives, Bad Breath, Confusion,, Dizziness, Sugar Cravings …. see linked article for a more comprehensive list of yeast infection symptoms.
How to stop systemic yeast infections:
Cutting back or eliminating refined sugar is a big one. Most who drink cokes or sweetened tea have no idea how much sugar they are consuming every day. If you drink cokes or order sweetened tea in restaurants, good time to start drinking more water instead.
I did a 30-day fast from all forms of sugar, including fruit, decades ago. I remember how hard it was to stop but I can tell you I felt tremendously better at the end of that month and I never went back to the sugar cravings I was having before the fast. I also had colonics with chlorella inserts to help my intestinal flora.
I turns out that simply changing your diet can help tremendously with candida overgrowth and reduce the tendency to have yeast infections by changing the environment of the intestinal tract to make it unattractive to yeast. learn more about controlling candida with diet
