Natural Health Hygiene How to Treat a Yeast Infection Naturally
Yeast infections are common in women, butthey can also be found in children and in men. I'm Lauren Roy for Sugar Hollow Farmin Phillipston, Mass. Yeast infections are very unpleasant. The first thing you needto do if you think you have a yeast infection is have it checked out, diagnosed properly.Be careful taking any of the overthecounter medicines because they can have side effects.You can treat it naturally with acidophilus, which comes in a capsule form. Get the kindthat you have to keep in your refrigerator. And double up on that and that will help balancethe amount of yeast in your body. You can also use yogurt nutritionally as well as topicallyto balance the amount of yeast in your body,
which we all have yeast. It's just that sometimesit overgrows and becomes unpleasant. So you have to bring it back down to a normal amountand it's very helpful to do that naturally. You just eat your yogurt, make sure that it'sthe kind that has the active cultures, and you take your acidophilus, drink plenty ofwater, keep yourself clean, and wear cotton underwear. You also want to make sure thatif you're taking antibiotics, you are also eating yogurt andor taking acidophilus becauseantibiotics can sometimes cause yeast infections.

Side Effects Of Fluconazole
Thank you for tuning into my tutorial today.Today I'm going to talk about Fluconazole. Fluconazole is a pharmaceutical antifungaldrug. It's also known by the name of Diflucan. Fluconazole is also present in a vaginal creamcalled Canesten that many women tend to use. I've seen many patients over the years who'vetaken Diflucan. Some with reasonably good success, but in most case, the drug has beentaken recurrently with very, very poor longterm results.The best result you're going to get from any pharmaceutical drug usually is the very firsttime you take it. The body's not used to the drug. It will have a powerful effect and givethe desired result. But then what happens
is the drug is discontinued, so then the symptomscome back, and the drug is used again and again and again. And eventually, the bodybuilds resistance to Diflucan. The resistance is well documented.I've seen some patients who take this drug weekly or monthly for years on end with badresults. And in many cases, they end up with significant side effects, particularly hepaticor liver side effects because Diflucan affects Phase II or the glucoronidation pathway ofthe liver and it can make a person quite nauseous or sick. They can get skin reactions. Theycan get headaches. They can get insomnia. They can get a whole range of different sideeffects from Diflucan.
I've got a pharmaceutical drug guide hereand I'm going to read out some of the common side effects of Diflucan or fluconazole. Sideeffects include gastrointestinal upset, headaches, elevated liver function test, abnormal vision,skin odor, skin rashes, hot flashes, weakness, thirst, shaking in the body, polyuria, whichmeans urinating a lot, renal pain or pain in the lower pain, kidney pain, dizziness,seizures, skin itching, sweating, fevers, drug eruptions, more skin rashes, sleepingdisturbances and insomnia, nervousness, pain, female sexual dysfunction, menstrual disorders,respiratory disorders, deafness, heartburn, high blood pressure, liver damage. Why thehell would you want to take a drug that creates
all these problems just to give you some temporaryrelief from a vaginal yeast infection or some kind of a yeast infection you might have?There are natural ways you can get on top of these infections without resorting to drugs.Have a look at yeastinfection for some natural solutions. If you're thinking aboutan antifungal drug and you want to get some results but don't want the side effects withit, have a look at the product I developed called Canxida. It's going to be more powerfulthan fluconazole. You don't need to take it for years on end. You're not going to getall of these side effects that I've just read out here. It's certainly worth a shot.Think about it. If you're going to take fluconazole,
take it once, but don't take it recurrently.There's no point in it. You're wasting your time doing that. You're only going to getdrug resistance and also liver toxicity from taking it.I hope that answers a frequently asked question I get on this particular drug fluconazole.Thank you for tuning in.

Diflucan, the brandname form of fluconazole,is a prescription medication used to treat fungal infections. It is also used to preventfungal infections in people with a weak immune system.
