Wondering how you can create a recipe to get rid of Candida? With some simple changes you can dramatically decrease or even eliminate the misery of yeast infection
Yeast infections happen when growing conditions are favorable. Candida albicans is one of the over 20 different types of yeast. Candida albicans is the most frequent cause of yeast infection in humans.
Warm moist conditions favor the growth of yeast. This fungus grows naturally on and inside the bodies of most women. Usually not a problem, yeast when not kept in control by the body’s defense system can cause serious infections.
Yeast infections happen when the body’s defense system breaks. The growth of the yeast is then uncontrolled and the result is known as a yeast infection.
What Causes Candida To Overgrow?
Other organisms in the body control the growth of yeast. In a women’s vagina the control mechanism is bacteria called lactobacillus.
When antibiotics are taken there are side effects. Lactobacillus one of the organisms protecting the vagina from yeast overgrowth is killed or made ineffective. This leads to vaginal thrush as the fungus grows and grows.
But antibiotics aren’t the only reason the overgrowth of yeast happens. People who take steroids, who have high blood sugars like in diabetes or those who take certain medications are increasing their risk of having a yeast infection.
Personal Recipe To Get Rid Of Candida
Diet can prove to be a very good way of controlling yeast overgrowth in your body. But even without changing your diet there are some steps you can take to minimize your risk of yeast infection.
Choose to wear clothes made from natural fibers. Moisture is directed away through wicking when you wear natural fibers. This way it makes it a little bit more difficult for the yeast to overgrow.
Eliminate possibility of skin irritation. If you have sensitive skin avoid scented soaps whether for your clothing or your body. This will decrease your skin’s irritation. Yeast overgrows in the presence of irritation.
Don’t wear tight clothing. Whether it’s tight jeans, a thong or pantyhose give your skin and vagina a chance to breathe. Moisture is trapped and with the addition of body heat you give Candida a great environment to grow in.
Avoid hot tubs whenever possible. Hot tubs are prime breeding environments for yeast.
Add yogurt with live acidophilus cultures to your body. If you can minimize your stress do so as well. Stress changes the environment inside our body making it a very good way for yeast to grow.
Creating your own personal recipe to get rid of Candida can make life easier. Remember small changes can make a huge difference.
