What Are The Symptoms Of Severe Vaginal Yeast Infection
I've got a question here from somebody inAustralia, in Sydney, Australia. What are the symptoms of severe vaginal yeast infection? The symptoms of severe vaginal yeast infectioncan be sometimes mistaken for bacterial vaginosis. Symptoms generally include itching and sometimessevere itching. Itching can be bad and really uncomfortable. I've had some patients thatcan't work anymore because of the itching. Itching, redness, discharge is quite common.Discharge can be clear, a white finished discharge up to a thick, almost like cottage cheesewhite discharge, but the two characteristic symptoms would be itching and discharge.
BV or bacterial vaginosis is that fishy odoror the foulsmelling vaginal area. Generally, there's not a really bad foul smell with avaginal yeast infection. It can be a musky sort of odor, but not generally a really fishystrong sort of smell. We get that more with bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis willalso have more of a whitish or a gray waterish discharge. Itching can be there, but nowherenear as intense as the vaginal yeast infection, which can be really bad. I've also found manywomen complain about a lot of pain after intercourse with a Candida yeast infection as well. Theyalso get them with bacterial vaginosis, but even more so with the vaginal infection. Thekey symptoms are those two things. Think about
the itching. Think about the discharge. Now some women with Candida yeast infectionsalso get pelvic pain to different degrees. Many of them can even have a lowgrade endometriosiswithout even knowing about it. I discovered years ago that many cases of severe endometriosisare, in fact, caused by a yeast infection. It makes sense because if you've got a vaginalinfection and you're going to treat it with applicators or creams from the andyou're going to take diflucan or fluconazole recurrently to cure this problem. You're notgoing to cure it with drugs. You're not going to cure it with creams. All you're doing isyou're driving it further up the vaginal area,
in through the cervix, into the endometrium,and then eventually you get endometriosis. So you get basically an inflammation in thewall of the womb. Yeast actually can get through there and start creating an immune reaction.Cysts will develop; small cysts develop around that area and that becomes endometriosis. Endometriosis has skyrocketed since tamponuse with many women. I've got a female friend who said that she found years ago amassive connection between endometriosis and chronic vaginal yeast infection, so you needto bear that in mind, too. You could have a lowgrade pelvic pain.
If in doubt, make sure that you get checkedout and have a swab and have that cultured for Candida to see whether you've got a bacterialproblem in the vaginal area or a yeast infection.

How to Cure Candida in 6 Steps
Hey, guys. Axe here, of functionalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to share with you the exact diet, treatmentand supplements you need to take the clear Candida from your body. And this is what Ireally consider to be my SixStep Candida Cure Diet Protocol. And you're going to seeamazing results with this protocol. And let me say this first, what is Candida?Candida is the overgrowth of yeast and bad bacteria in your body and it can cause somemajor symptoms that you want to get rid of. And so some of the symptoms of Candida caninclude any type of fatigue issue. If you struggle with chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue,those can be related to Candida.
Any type of leaky gut issue. Leaky gut isintestinal permeability, where proteins like gluten can leak through your gut and causeinflammation of your body. So if you have food sensitivities or if you have digestiveissues like gas and bloating, also if you have any problem related to the thyroid, thosecan be warning signs you have Candida. Also if you get yeast in your body. If younotice, let's say, yeast or whiteness on your tongue or if you ever get chronic yeast infectionsor coming down with the cold and flu often, those can be warning signs that you have Candida.And, of course, also with Candida any sort of other digestive issues, like irritablebowel syndrome or chronic diarrhea or constipation
or even acid reflux, those are warning signsthat you might have Candida. And last but not least, is a sluggish metabolism.If you aren't losing weight and burning fat like you know you should be, those are warningsigns you could have Candida, along with actually even bad breath and lack of detoxification.Those are some major warning signs. So here are the six things you need to do to eliminateCandida fast. Number one, you need to stop consuming somuch sugar. Now, I know that's obvious. That's something that I think most of us realizeis that sugar feeds yeast in your body. But again, you have got to get rid of processedsugar, fruit juices, any sort of added sugar
to any sort of product sweetener. Even mostpackaged products and fast foods are also high in sugar. Even things like pasta saucesand crackers, you'd be surprised, but sugar is added to almost everything. So again, eliminate especially the processedsugar out of your diet. As a replacement, I recommend using a little bit of Stevia,which is a nocalorie natural sweetener and then about one to three teaspoons a day ofmanuka honey. Okay? Those are the sweeteners you should be using if you have Candida. Number two. You need to eliminate grains fromyour diet. Why? Because grains turn into sugar
and they also tend to be more inflammatory.And so again, getting those grains out of your diet, especially wheat products and glutencontaininggrains, that's step number two. Instead, do a lot more vegetables and maybe some starchycarbs. Number three thing you have to do to clearCandida from you system, is support your spleen. Now, this is cuttingedge information thata lot of people don't realize. And this is a practice in Ancient China that is oftenused by acupuncturists today. But they have found that the number one cause of Candidais a weakened spleen. And so if you have spleen issues, and spleen is responsible for digestionof the body, producing red blood cells in
your system. And so the spleen is a very importantorgan. In order to support the spleen, there area couple things you need to do. But really the spleen is supported by starchy foods,especially squash, things like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and also even doing certaintypes of beans like lentils and mung beans. So again, getting some of those good starchycarbs. And that's really where your sweetness shouldcome from. A little bit of butternut squash, acorn squash, foods like that that has thatmild sweetness. That's the only sweet you should be really getting in your diet. Again,with no processed sugar and, again, very low
