Candida Yeast Symptoms: What You Need To Know

Are you looking to cure a yeast infection? Do you suffer from a chronic case of Candida Albicans? If you have educated yourself, you may know you will not get your cure with any of the promised “quick fixes” in today’s market place.

Yeast infections show up in many different ways: women can get them vaginally, men can experience them genitally, and they can show up on your skin as a red and itchy patch. You can also get a yeast infection in your mouth and, for some babies, diaper rash occurs due to a yeast infection.

In order to halt the overgrowth of candida it is imperative that one maintains the correct acid-alkaline balance. This means having the correct “PH” levels in one’s blood. Extra acidity can lead to the rapid growth of candida. There are foods plans to help balance acidity it becomes an issue. These diets usually consist of foods with calcium, potassium, sodium, almonds, fish and green juices among other things.

Consume probiotics!! “Good” bacteria are what keep yeast in check as well. You can find these live cultures in yogurt like Yoplait or Activia (you’ve seen the commercials). However, I highly suggest you stick with plain, no sugar-added yogurt at least until you get rid of a current infection. You may also use probiotic supplements found in your local drug or health food store. Take those as directed.

Avoid sugar!! Yeast LOVES sugar so rid yourself of it! In fact, you will honestly need to make some dietary changes if you want to rid yourself of infections. One book I found helpful offers a food plan as well as some natural remedies that you can use to treat current infections. Most of the treatments are already in your fridge or cabinet and those that are not you can purchase from the health food store. (For more info on the book please contact me.) Remember those smoothies? Let’s not add any extra sugar, like juice from a container. In fact, just use fruit (I like strawberries, bananas, pineapple and kiwi) and a little bit of soy milk–not yogurt, unless it is plain. While flavored yogurt has active cultures (we’ll get to those), it is also loaded with sugars.

Eat more vegetables when you have a yeast infection. Garlic is an incredibly effective cure for yeast infections because of its very potent anti-microbial powers. In addition, because of its anti-fungal properties, asparagus can also help in the reduction of bad bacteria in your system. Also eat non-glutinous grains, which include oats and rice. You should avoid drinking or eating any type of food that has been fermented. Other foods to avoid when you are treating a yeast infection are fresh and dried fruits.

These are some simple ways to prevent yeast infection spoiling your daily life. But these are only just the beginning if you want to prevent recurring yeast infections from causing you some potentially serious health problems over time.
