Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of a fungus most commonly Candida Albicans. Yeast infections can occur in many parts of the body including the vagina and penis, the skin, mouth and throat, the bladder, urethra and kidneys, bones, joints and muscles and deep organ tissue. The most common recurrent yeast infection is the vaginal Candida Albicans suffered by many women. There are ways to treat and prevent yeast infections naturally.
You need both dietary and lifestyle changes to prevent yeast infections. Removing some things from your diet will help stop Candida infections and also help alleviate Candida symptoms.
Natural antifungals include tea tree oil, coconut oil, oregano oil and garlic and adding these to your diet can help. Probiotics like yoghurt are natural cures for yeast infections.
The Candida diet can help and concentrates on alkaline foods which is useful because yeast thrives in acidic environments.
Lifestyle changes are also useful ways to stop recurrent yeast infections. The way you dress, staying hydrated and avoiding stress are all important.
