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.

Candida Cleanse How To Do A Proper Candida Cleanse Get Rid of Candida Overgrowth
Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thanks for tuning in today. I've been asked by many people in severalcountries to do a tutorial on how to do a Candida cleanse. What's the best way to rid my bodyof a yeast infection? How can I clean up my system? How can I get rid of bacteria andparasites? How can I get rid of Candida? That's what we're going to talk about today. I'mgoing to put quite a few elements together for this tutorial, and I think you're going tofind it quite informative. It will be a tutorial you may want to watch once or twice becausethere will be quite a lot of information here
for you to take in.There are essentially three elements to a Candida cleanse. If you want to do it properly,there are three main categories that we're going to talk about. Category 1 is the diet,what to eat, what to avoid and special foods. Category 2 is the lifestyle, and Category3 is what are the best kind of supplements to take. Let's just go through that step bystep and explain to you a little bit about what I think is the best kind of Candida cleanseto do. You may be familiar with my website, yeastinfection .If not, please go and have a look at that website. And if you haven't already done myonline questionnaire, I would urge you to
do that to see what kind of level of Candidayou've got. If you've got mild, moderate or severe. Thousands of people have already completedthis online quiz, and I could easily say it's the world's best online quiz for yeast infection.It cost me a hell of a lot of time and investment to create this quiz, and I think it's thebest one around. So if you haven't already completed it, please go to yeastinfection and complete that quiz. Let's talk about the diet as being the firststep. Before we go into taking you off of all kinds of foods and saying, quot;You can'tdo this and you can't do that,quot; the first thing I like to do is to put a person on areally basic Candida cleanse. Usually for
the first 14 days, I get people to clean uptheir act, for want of a better word. And that 14day period, I call it the quot;warm turkeyquot;period. Cold turkey means you take everything away from people, but warm turkey means youhave a softer approach. For 14 days, we're going to get you to be aware of everythingyou're eating and drinking. And in that 14day period, I want you to stop all alcohol. Iwant you to cut caffeine down to one or two cups per day max, and generally, a cup ofcoffee or tea in the morning is okay, providing you don't put sugar in it. Those sorts ofdrinks are usually okay. In that 14day period, you're going to havea good look at what kind of takeaway or junk
food you eat. What kind of processed foodsyou eat. You're going to look into your refrigerator and try to get rid of all those bottles andjars with different sauces. Often they contain sugars, molds, and all kinds of crap in them.Many people I know have got containers in their cupboard or refrigerator. There couldbe jars of jam in there or all sorts of sauces, shrimp sauce, chili sauce, tomato sauce. Theyall need to go. Because on a Candida diet, they're not really good foods to have. That14day period is when you're going to make the switch from eating the notsogood foodsto eating a better kind of food, and I think it makes a lot of sense. In my experience,it's not good just to plunge people into an
average, standard diet and then into a Candidadiet. You need to have a transition period. That's the twoweek period. You'll be ableto read more about that at yeastinfection about that transition period that is veryimportant to do. Once you've gone through that transition period,it's time to look at what I call the MEVY diet. The MEVY diet has been around for along time now, probably about 40 years. In fact, these sorts of diets have been aroundbefore the word quot;paleoquot; diet was invented. These are high protein diets. Candida lovessugar, so of course, the big thing that we want to do is take sugar out of the diet.Yeast need sugar to thrive, and the PaleoMEVY
Best Supplement To Help Candida Die Off
I'm going to answer another question today.Eric, what is the best dietary supplement to help Candida die off? Well, there is no best supplement. Candidadie off does not need to occur with most people. It's inevitable with a small amount of peoplethat I see that they do get this Herxheimer reaction, but it does not have to happen tothe majority of people because it's all about preparation. Preparation, preparation, preparation. Let's just quickly go through this first.There are three types of Candida patients that I generally see. You can read all aboutthis in Candida Crusher. We've got the normal
people like you or me, which make up the bulkof the Candida patients. We've got the sensitive patients, which make up probably about 15percent, and then we've got the supersensitive patients. The supersensitive are people that react toeverything. They take one Vitamin C tablet or a Vitamin B tablet, they could be havingdiarrhea for two days or massive headaches. Everything they take creates a reaction. Theyget sick from this and sick from that. You may even know somebody like this. Now what do you think are the chances of thatperson having a severe die off compared to
just the average person like you or me? Prettyhigh. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to work out that a very small percentage ofpeople are what I call the supersensitive, are the ones that are going to have the mostextreme die off reactions. The sensitive patients may have die off, butnot severe. I've seen die off to the point where the patient had to get admitted to theemergency room. She thought she was actually dying. Actually, I've seen a few of them,but mind you, I've seen many thousands of Candida patients. I have seen quite a few hundred patients whogo through a time which might involve a bit
of a headache, maybe a bit of diarrhea, malaise,muscle pain, not feeling good. A similar sort of feeling that a lot of people have whenthey're hung over or drunk, which I'm sure you've never experienced before. You've neverexperienced what it's like to have three glasses of wine or a couple of beers. I'm sure youhave. Everyone has experienced it. Experience of sort of feeling hung over and sometimesseverely hung over is what Herxheimer can be or what we call die off. And die off canlast anywhere from a half a day up to four or five days, even a week for some people,but usually it passes quite rapidly. This reaction can occur for many differentreasons. People tend to think that die off
is from Candida rapidly dying off in the body,but it's not. And I'll talk about that in many other tutorials. That Herxheimer reaction,in fact, there can be multiple different scenarios that cause a reaction similar to die off,but it's, in fact, not die off at all. We talked about a supplement. What supplementcan help Herxheimer reaction? Well, it's not so much what can help to stop it; you've gotto prevent the darn thing from happening in the first place. But if you are going to havea Herxheimer reaction, you could try charcoal tablets. You could try also Vitamin C. I'vefound Vitamin C to work quite well for some people. Just take some good Vitamin C powderin water. That can help.
Many patients benefit from hot and cold showersand prolonged sort of rests, but there are no real supplements I'd recommend to counterthese sorts of toxic reactions you have because you're not going to really fix it up reallyquick. It's like when you've got a bad migraine; you can't turn it around once you've got one.It's not about what you can take to stop it, it's what you can do to prevent.
