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.

Can A Yeast Infection Turn Into A Urinary Tract Infection If Left Untreated
Good day, Eric Bakker again, naturopath, withanother frequently asked question for Candida Crusher. Can a yeast infection turn into a urinarytract infection if left untreated? Well, yeast infections can predispose youto many different types of infections. They, in turn, are there because of poor or compromisedimmunity and, in turn, can further compromise your lowered immunity and predispose you toa UTI or urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are common for certaintypes of people. Elderly women, I find, have more, but many women suffer from recurringUTIs as well, particularly younger women who
often have these. UTIS can come about throughincreased sexual activity, but also infrequent emptying or bladder issues. Lowered immunityor compromised immunity is a key reason why people would have a UTI. So drinking plentyof water is a clever idea and boosting immunity up. Coming back to that question again, can aUTI be there because of a yeast infection? It can be because of the predisposing factor,but yeast infections don't generally cause UTIs as such, but they can develop out ofyeast infections. So basically the smart thing to do if youhave got a UTI is to improve your immune health
and your urinary health and I'll be coveringmore details in further FAQs on UTIs to give you some very good ideas on how you can overcomea urinary tract infection. These are things that you can get on top of. So I hope that answers your question in aroundabout way. Thank you.
