Vaginal Yeast Infection Treatment

How To Cure CandidaThere are a few avenues to take when looking for a vaginal yeast infection treatment. The first avenue is to use a medication especially designed to fight yeast infections. These medications come in the forms of antifungal creams, tablets and suppositories such asbutoconazole, miconazole, clotrimazole, and tioconazole. You can get these products ovet the counter but if your yeast infection is particularly persistent you may need to see your doctor for something stronger. The problem with these types of medications is that they become less effective the more you use them, the body builds up a resistance quickly. Also some of the stronger medications that are specifically aimed at yeast infections can damage the liver if used for long periods of time. Usually they do have to be used for long periods, again and again and again.

Possible Causes

The important thing to remember when fighting off a yeast infection is that it is caused from an inbalance within your body. This can be caused from an illness resulting in a weakened immune system, overuse of antibiotics, steroid medication, stress, birth control pills, diabetes, surgery, menstruation, pregnancy or a bad diet. Each of the above situations allows yeast to grow, breed and thrive because it has the right conditions to. Our job is to tip the scales in favour of our bodies by getting our systems back into optimal health by building up our immune systems and restoring a healthy internal digestive tract full of good bacteria.  
 
Vaginal Yeast Infection Treatment The Natural Way
 
Nutrition makes a big difference to our immune systems. There are certain foods that give the right breeding ground for yeast. Number one would be sugar especially refined sugar. Yeast feeds on sugar so if your diets consists of sweet sugary foods then cut them out. Refined and processed foods are another no-no. It really is simple, eat a whole food diet that contains vegetables, fruit in small amounts (as they contain natural sugars), whole grains, and lean meat. It’s really going back to the caveman diet. They certainly didn’t have packaged foods and sugar. If you have a yeast infection avoid all foods that are yeast and mold containing such as alcohol, cheeses, dried fruits and peanuts at least until you have eliminated yeast from your system. 
Beneficial foods to add to our diets are natural yoghurt. You must choose one that has live cultures such as Lactobacillus Acidiphilus in it. Yoghurt restores “good intestinal flora’’ that keep candida or yeast in check. You can add yoghurt to your diet easily. Mix it with fresh fruit, on top of oats or in a smoothie.

Apple Cider Vinegar assists the growth of good bacteria and helps stop the growth of yeast. You can use it as a salad dressing and also drink a couple of tablespoons in water.

Garlic is a powerful antifungal and should be included in your diet. It’s also an anti-bacterial and can be eaten raw or in cooking.

Coconut oil is a wonderful antifungal. Use it as an oil for stirfrying. I use it in a smoothie, a couple of tablespoons, rice milk and berries or bananas. Delicious!

B vitamins are important and can be eaten as lentils and sunflower seeds (great added to breakfast cereal). Zinc is essential also so eat eggs, sardines and pumpkin seeds.

Topical Applications
 
As well as including Yogurt, Garlic and Coconut oil in the diet, they can all be applied directly to the site of the itch as an effective vaginal yeast infection treatment. All three can be applied inside the vagina. Take a tampon and let it soak in coconut oil or yoghurt and insert inside the vagina overnight. Alternatively take a clove of garlic and wrap it in gauze to make it easier to insert and take out. This can also be applied overnight.
