Addressing the Underlying Cause of Yeast Infections

Is the itching unbearable?

Have the yeast infection creams stopped working?

If you’re tired of yeast infections that keep coming back, I have good news.

You can treat yeast infections naturally and throw away anti-fungal creams.

Chronic yeast infections points to an overgrowth of Candida Albicans in your system.

Candida is a type of yeast that normally lives in your gut (gastrointestinal tract). With recurring yeast infections, Candida has gained the upper hand.

Treating Candida from the inside out is a must because locally treating the problem is just masking symptoms.

Surprisingly, the root cause of yeast infections lies in the gut.

If you are tired of embarrassing discharge, redness, and odour, this article is for you.

And ladies, you’re not the only ones who need to be concerned with yeast infections. Men also get them, especially men who drink beer.

Gentlemen, perhaps I have your attention now?

For the most part, it’s completely harmless; however, problems arise when Candida grows out of control.

If you’ve used the birth control pill, antibiotics (even when you were young), and have high levels of stress, your gut flora has been altered. Too much junk food, alcohol (especially wine and beer), and sugary treats, can also change the gut microbiome.

As a result of altered gut flora, Candida finds a home in the body.

When Candida spreads in the gastrointestinal tract, yeast-related problems increase.

The chance of yeast infections returning after treatment with over-the-counter creams is high because applying cream locally doesn’t address the overgrowth internally.

To break it down – you need to treat yeast infections naturally by treating the gut.

What else is involved with treating Candida naturally?

It’s necessary to follow a Candida Diet for at least a few weeks during treatment.

If you continue to provide Candida with food, it’s almost impossible to beat.

Candida loves carbs and booze.

If Candida is left untreated, it can cause these symptoms:

  • fatigue
  • weight gain
  • food sensitivities
  • skin issues
  • digestive upset
  • headaches

This yeast can also release toxins into the bloodstream by damaging the intestinal lining.

My advice?

Treat the root cause.

The underlying cause of chronic yeast infections is often in the gut.

You can treat yeast infections naturally the way ND’s do.

Use a probiotic and Candida Cleansing Kit that contains a variety of herbs (anti-bacterial and anti-fungal). The body needs ‘good’ bacteria to outnumber and combat Candida.

And remember poor dietary choices feed Candida.

Changes to the diet are necessary since the goal is to starve these tiny microorganisms and stop their growth.

This means eliminating sugar in all forms. It also means increasing fresh green vegetables (like bok choy, broccoli, kale, collard greens, and lettuce).

Loading up on garlic (you can get odourless garlic capsules if you don’t like garlic) is a good idea as well.

Finally, practice safe sex to prevent transmission.

If you are curious about Candida, speak to your Naturopathic Doctor about testing.
