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.

My Vaginal Discharge is Bleaching My Underwear
My vaginal discharge is bleaching my underwear. That can happen when you have an ammonialikedischarge. That doesn't tell me what causes it or howto cure it. Your vagina usually maintains an acidic pH. I really don't know what it is supposed tosmell like, so I can't tell you if it smells very different. The ammonia like smell can be similar to thatlike pee. I am not peeing in my pants.
If you are dehydrated, the ammonia in theurine can get concentrated and make things smell even more strongly, even a few drops.And some women do mistake a leaky bladder for vaginal discharge. I know women often use light days menstrualpads for bladder leakage, but that would stain my underwear yellow not white, and I knowwhat pee smells like. Bacterial vaginosis is a common cause of avagina that smells like ammonia. The odds you have that are higher if you have itching,burning a fishy smell, grey or offwhite discharge. All the discharge is off white.
During your fertile time, it becomes thinnerand white, normally. I'm not paying attention to what normallyhappens except that my underwear sometimes turns white after I wash it, right where thevaginal discharge was in contact with it. If you have a bacterial vaginal infection,you can try over the counter treatments, or you need to talk to the . I don't have symptoms that seem like an infection. It can cause bleaching, though, when the badbacteria turn nitrogen into ammonia, creating the smell and discoloration.
What else can do this? Next I'd have to ask about your diet. It's healthy, so don't blame this on junkfood or too much sugar. And if I had diabetes, I'd get more yeast infections and sugarysmellingurine. If you eat a lot of nitrogen rich vegetableslike broccoli and asparagus, you can get that ammonia smell in the vagina. I don't need yet another reason to not eatasparagus, and you can have a healthy diet without that.
If you're doing a high protein diet for weightloss, eating a lot of foods like eggs, meat and dairy with high nitrogen levels can causethe ammonia in the urea to build up. That would be ammonia smelling pee, not vaginaldischarge. The ammonia smell can get into your skin andexcreted as sweat, and depending on how you work out, the chemicals can build up therewhile it evaporates off your arms and legs. And I thought a rich sweat odor was the worstI could worry about. I've heard of vaginal discharge turning bleachywhen someone had polycystic ovaries or another hormonal disorder. Getting that under controlor eliminating gluten and high sugar foods
helps. For all the reasons one might say a glutenfree diet helped their wardrobe, this was never on the list. Everyone can brag about dresses fitting betterand old jeans actually fitting without a muffin top, but few people admit anything about lacyunderwear except maybe that they are wearing it. Just having some ways I could wear the blackones without them going gray in odd places would be progress.
