vaginal yeast infection




Yeast infection is an overgrowth of yeast in or on the body. Yeast is present in minute levels in every body.
When the yeast grows out of control due to a change in the body, the yeast infection may appear as a rash or a welt. In extreme cases the yeast infection may look raw, inflamed and extremely uncomfortable.

Most women experience a vaginal yeast infection at least twice in their lifetime. The symptoms of yeast infection are itching, burning, swelling, heavy discharge and the vaginal area becomes inflamed.
Sexual intercourse will be painful and the male partner can contract yeast infection from the partner.

Natural remedies for yeast infection include colloidal silver, yogurt, tea tree oil and hydrogen peroxide. These suggestions are gentle if used early and you do not need a prescription for them.

An acidic environment of the vagina helps prevent yeast from growing. Should the vagina drop below the normal acidic level, the conditions are favorable for yeast overgrowth or a yeast infection.
The acid balance of the vagina can be changed by your diabetes, period (menstruation), pregnancy, birth control pills, steroids and some antibiotics,.
Moisture and irritation of the vagina also seem to encourage yeast to grow.

Candida albicans is the specific yeast that is responsible for most vaginal infections. “Candida” is a yeast that is found in or on the skin, penis, and inside the rectum, digestive tract, mouth and vagina.

Thrush is a yeast infection normally seen in infants on the roof of their mouths as small red bumps.

Prevention of yeast infection can be obtained by the use of:
  • digestive Enzymes
  • acidophilus supplements
  • reduce the consumption of grains, processed foods, and sugar
  • eat more raw vegetables
  • drink plenty of pure water
  • build and maintain a healthy immune system
  • wear cotton or silk underwear that is washed often
  • try to have the genitals clean, dry, and cool

DO NOT USE baking soda, bleach or Echinacea to relieve vaginal itching. Baking soda will raise the ph of the vagina, causing the yeast to grow faster. Echinacea inserted in any way will cause extreme burning sensations. Bleach will cause tissue burning and scarring.
