Yeast Infection Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Author : Frederick Singletonne

Think back to a few decades ago - there was no electricity, no cars, no telephone lines and no over-the-counter treatments for every little condition. Individuals were dependent on natural cures for anything from a toothache and a sore tummy to more serious conditions and infections.

Therefore it is sometimes not necessarily a bad idea to rather use a natural remedy or treatment method before immediately running to the pharmacy for a dose of strong medication. However, should your symptoms persist or become worse you should schedule an appointment with a doctor for an accurate diagnosis and treatment. An all natural treatment should show visible results in just a week - if not, stop wasting further time and seek some professional advice.

Did you know that 75% of all ladies have problems with yeast infection at least once in their lifetimes? That is quite an astronomical percentage that has to address this very uncomfortable infection. This infection is caused by a type of fungus infection and some input from the sufferer's side is required to eliminate the infection.

Prevention is definitely much better than cure. One method to avoid yeast infection is to make sure that your underclothing is always hygienically clean. Use proper washing detergent and even some dishwashing liquid, just to be certain that no fungus infection can survive your washing efforts. Do not wear your underwear for more than a day, it is simply not a hygienic way to live!

If you ever need a natural remedy for yeast infection, I think you might be pleasantly impressed at how much info and ideas you will be able to get, purely by browsing the internet or paging through a health mag or two.

An increasingly popular natural remedy for yeast infection is yogurt. Yogurt contains a type of bacteria that can help with destroying yeast. You can stock your refrigerator with yogurt and eat a wholesome portion each day, as well as apply a bit of yogurt to the impacted areas.

You should also reduce your daily intake of sugar and other sugary foods. An excessive amount of sugar will promote yeast growth and should rather be replaced by sugar replacements or totally cut from your diet.

Many drug stores also sell a natural remedy for yeast infection and various other infections. It's called gentian violet and should be applied to the area a couple of times a day.

Garlic is yet another item that should always be in your kitchen cupboard. Garlic does not only boost your immunity, but also acts as an antibacterial and antifungal medium. Add some to your beef or salads as part of your everyday intake.

Another organic remedy for yeast infection is to pretend that you are treating yourself to a very interesting hot tub. Run yourself a bath (just enough water to cover the contaminated area - this is not really as pleasant as a spa bath!) and add about 125ml table salt and 125ml vinegar to the bath. Ensure that you stir the water so that it dilutes properly. Then soak in the tub for at least 15 minutes.

If all else fails, seek medical help immediately.
