The Mystery of Yeast Infection Unveiled




The first and most important step in curing candida infection is to know as much as you can about this condition. You may ask what on earth is candida?


Candida (technically called Candida albicans) is a microorganism in the category of yeast, fungi and mold. A very small amount of it normally lives in your mouth and intestine. Its job is to help in digestion and nutrient absorption.


However, under certain circumstances, it overgrows itself and invades into other tissues and organs (such as liver or kidney) where it is not supposed to be.  In the process of doing so, it releases toxic byproducts into your body, affecting cell functions in ways that create many symptoms, some of which can become serious.


The term “Candida” refers to the general overgrowth of various fungi and yeasts in the body, which flourish under certain circumstances to the point of causing illness. Though this is quite a common condition affecting three out of four women, it is seldom discussed.


Many people mistakenly think that candida infection is some kind of ordinary skin disease that can easily be treated by just using creams and antibiotics without any knowledge about its potentially risky complications. The fact is yeast (or candida) infection is more than just an external condition.


A healthy person has two forms of protection against yeast overgrown – the bacterial flora and a certain type of white blood cells called neutrophils. Candida overgrowth and invasion occur when bacterial flora are killed, or when the immune system is suppressed and neutrophils are not as active or abundant.


This can be due to eating a diet in refined carbohydrates and sugar, particularly maltose (malt, barley malt, malted barley or maltodextrin) which feed the yeast;  high consumption of alcohol;  eating lots of fermented or aged food items such as Kombucha, sauerkraut and pickles; stressful lifestyle; using birth control pills and taking a round of antibiotics that killed too many of the bacterial flora.

So, you can now see that there is no single cause for the yeast infection and just treating this like a normal skin disease by using creams or antibiotics will not be effective in totally eradicate this fungal problem. The best way to cure yeast infection is to tackle the root factors that trigger the formation of candida infection.
However, most yeast infection sufferers prefer to take a passive approach to cure their fungal problem and prefer to totally rely on others: Doctors, pharmacists, drug and over the counter medication.
If you are suffering from yeast infection, most likely you will be overwhelmed by the amount of information you receive and often this bits and pieces of information tends to contradict each other. It is indeed very hard to get true and reliable information about vaginal yeast infection or any other type of candida infection.

This misinformation may cause you to waste literally thousands of dollars on candida treatment programs that didn’t “work out” and anti-yeast infection products that didn’t do anything.

Fortunately, there are alternative, cheap, safe, natural and holistic health practices and methods that can tackle the root internal cause of yeast infection (regardless of its type, location, or level of severity) and eliminate the symptoms of this disease once and for all.

The first step to effectively overcome candida infection is to know the real cause and symptoms of your yeast infection. You have to learn how to self-test and diagnose your candida condition. You also need to change your dietary habits to those of a diet that is low in both sugar and carbohydrates. You also need to be knowledgeable about the complimentary treatments that will help you to overcome the negative effects and complications of your yeast infection.

This self-learning process will help you to deal effectively with your candida infection condition. This will get your body to heal itself and keep the candida population under control. The end result of the process is you will feel fitter, more energized and vibrant due to improved digestion and healthier hair, skin and nails.

Knowledge is power. Embrace it. Share it and apply it and you will be yeast infection free.
