A vaginal yeast infection means that too many yeast cells, usually called Candida albicans, are growing in the vaginal area. When healthy, the vaginal bacteria keep the yeast in check. Candida in women is usually indicated by any kind of vaginal discharge, itching, burning, or possible dryness. There may be irritability, bloating, anxiety and nervousness.
The causes of Candida can be diet from dairy, coffee, alcohol, sodas and refined sugars. It may also be caused from hormonal imbalances, sometimes caused by chemical birth control.
Modern medicine treats Candida with other less harmful fungus medicines (one fungus treats another!!!). There is a little control, and only long-term treatments continue to help.
Natural solutions will help regulate the pH levels with the following treatments. Also get your hormones in balance, and regulate your diet, eliminating dairy, coffee, alcohol, sodas and refined sugars.
Short term control includes using 1,000 micrograms of Biotin (a B vitamin that controls sugar and carbohydrate metabolism) two to three times a day. Use this daily for at least 2 weeks. If this is not sufficient, add the trace mineral Molybdonem 150 micrograms twice a day.
