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 Foods To Eat Best Foods To Eat With Candida Diet

Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand and author of Candida Crusher. Thanks for checking out my tutorial today. Asyou can imagine, I get an incredible amount of emails from patients from all around theworld from many different countries, particularly from the United States of America. I get lotsof frequently asked questions. I've got a question here from a guy called Tom Rutherfordin Texas, and Tom is asking me, Eric, what are the best foods to eat if I have a yeastinfection? The best foods to eat with Candida. Well, Tom, this is going to be quite an interestingreply to your question because it's not just about what foods are the best foods to eatwith Candida. There are many different ways

we can answer the question and, unfortunately,many Candida diet websites, base a lot of their information around foods. Foods do forma very important consideration with yeast infections. But unfortunately, a lot of thesewebsites and sources of information don't contain the full picture. In fact, I'm absolutelystunned the longer I see patients, the more I realize that so many people can, in facteat fruit, can eat gluten, and can eat lots of bread. Even some patients can drink alcoholand still recover from a yeast infection. So there is no one law that comes down likea hammer that says, “You shall not eat this. You shall not eat that.� But the guidelinesI'm going to give you now, Tom, will be based

on my experiences on many thousands of differentpatients. What I think works best for the general population. And I'll throw some moreinformation in along the line as we speak on situations other than foods.Let's just start by explaining a little bit about what is currently the whole idea withthe Candida diet. Most people will be quick to tell you that you've got to avoid anythingcontaining sugar or refined carbohydrates. That you've got to eat a diet that is quitehigh in proteins, preferably lean sources of protein and focus more on the green leafyvegetables. The general consensus is to avoid all forms of fruit and most forms of grain.In fact, it almost sounds a bit like a specific

carbohydrate kind of diet, doesn't it? It'sa paleoSCD diet combined. That's almost what this sounds like. There are no hard and fastrules, and I wrote about this extensively in Candida Crusher.However, when you're starting off with a Candida diet approach, the first thing I always getpeople to do is to do what I call a big clean up. So a big clean up means an assessmentof what you're currently eating, particularly if you haven't already made the changes towardthese types of foods, is to slowly wind down all your eating over a 14day period. By that,I mean cut out all forms of alcohol over a 14day period. Stop eating takeaway or refinedfoods, and start incorporating good foods

into the diet.What are the good foods? What are the best foods to eat when you've got a Candida yeastinfection? Well, the best foods are foods that support good digestion, that supportgood immune function, and that support the proliferation of beneficial bacteria in thedigestive system. They discourage dysbiotic bacteria and Candida, and they also discouragethe ability to the challenge the immune system. Because nearly all people with Candida haveleaky gut syndrome. They have intestinal permeability. Nearly all people I see with Candida haveSIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and all patients I see with Candida have gotstress, which increases permeability umpteen

times.Focus on high quality proteins in your diet. Proteins are important to eat, particularlyif you chew them really well. Chew them well. And also, I believe it's important at thisstage to recommend that you take a good digestive enzymeprobiotic supplement at least twice,if not three times per day. When you've gone through the big clean up and you're goinginto the initial stages of a good Candida diet is to support your digestion with a verygood quality enzyme dietary supplement. Because the enzyme is going to help your stomach,the pancreas, and the small intestine. It's going to facilitate proper breakdown. It'sgoing to supply the body with some enzymes
