Answers About Candida

Candida is a common type of yeast infection resulting from the consumption of high levels of yeast products in the processed foods we eat.

Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth created by high levels of yeast components in your diet. Yeast, when analyzed from this prospective, is a basic type of fungus which occurs in many areas of your body. Candidiasis is the most normal type of yeast infection. In women, vaginal yeast infections are a common occurrence; Candida is the second major reason for vaginal burning, itching, and discharge. Candida causing yeasts are found in the vaginas of 50% of healthy women. Candida may overproduce if the environment in your vagina abruptly changes. Antibiotic and steroid use is the most common cause of yeast overproduction.

Vaginal yeast infections occur for a variety of reasons, but the leading cuase is the overuse of broad spectrum antibiotics. Prescription antibiotics kill the bad bacteria you are trying to eliminate, but at the same time they wipe out all your healthy bacteria, which you need for homeostasis. Yeast is not vulnerable to antibiotics and when the friendly bacteria may be destroyed, the internal intestinal envrionment is wide open for Candida to grow unchecked in your vagina.

A poor diet is a very important reason we experience a high frequency of yeast infections. Most people are eating foods containing high levels of sugar, refined carbohydrates, and junk foods containing little nutritional value. Candida's primary source of food is sugar and processed waste foods. Experts in the field say that the more sugar you consume, ther greater the elements you are providing for Candida infections to grow.

Clear Way Health will recommend some simple lifestyle changes, which will help you to reduce and possibly eliminate yeast from your system. First, if you must take an antibiotic, make sure you also take a Probiotic. The Probiotic balance out the intestinal flora and can restore the healthy bacteria that the antibiotic has destroyed.

Second, it is important you eliminate flour, sugar, and yeast from your diet when possible. Candida grows from the consumption of these foods. This will help balance out the flora in your body. Easting more alkaline foods, such as greens and other calcium rich vegetables can restore the body back to its intended balance, which will greatly reduce Candida infections.
