Recurring Yeast Infection

You may not know it, but almost 75% of the population can be inflicted with yeast infection. 8 out of 10 women can have this in their lifetime. The worst part is, if you have this condition a few months or years before, recurring yeast infection may strike again and cause another week or so of discomfort.

Recurring Yeast InfectionChronic yeast infection or recurring yeast infection may also pose other health risks such as diabetes and UTI. It can be passed on to a sexual partner during intercourse and it can affect your sex life if not properly treated soon. People who suffer recurring yeast infections would complain of painful intercourse and this is an indication that the infection is severe and should be treated as soon as possible.

Other common symptoms are itching and burning sensations on the infected area/s. Treating this condition with topical creams and prescription medicines may not eradicate the root cause but simply cure the infection only at the surface. No one wants a recurring yeast infection, but this happens because most of the medications that are over-the-counter only cure the symptoms and not the underlying cause.

Stopping the root cause and symptoms of yeast infection holistically and naturally

So where do you go from here?

If your yeast infection is recurring time and time again, you need to look into a different treatment and approach. If medical treatments won't stop the infection for good, then it's about time to change your medications. If you're taking antibiotics, chances are your yeast infection may come back and become harder to treat. Some patients tend to be immune to antibiotics that their infection becomes worse on the next attack.

There are two important approaches that can help you get rid of your yeast infection for good. One is to cleanse your body from within and the other is to treat the infection and its symptoms. These are done simultaneously and holistically. You don't need to use any chemical-based treatments here, but natural and safer treatments will do more wonders if you take these crucial steps now if not sooner.

Cleansing your body from within is done by changing your lifestyle and eating habits. The type of yeast that causes infection is Candida. All humans have naturally-occurring Candida or yeast in their bodies. When there are triggering factors such as a bad habit [i.e. drinking alcohol] or unhealthy diet [i.e. too much sugar or carbohydrates in the diet], the Candida becomes over-active and will produce more than what is necessary and more than what the body can handle; hence the infection.

By only treating the infection from the outside and if there's no lifestyle or diet change, the infection is likely to come back. But if you'll avoid these triggering factors, it is likely that you'll heal and maintain a yeast infection-free life.

Avoid eating foods that are high in fats, sugars, carbohydrates and alcohol. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and make sure that you have proper hygiene.

Treating your infections and symptoms by using natural ingredients such as yoghurt, apple cider vinegar, garlic and tea tree oil truly helps in healing from the outside. Use these ingredients to wash and cleanse [yoghurt, apple cider vinegar], or as treatment tampons to alleviate the symptoms [tea tree oil, garlic].
