An EFFECTIVE Yeast Infection Treatment

Mar 16, 2008
Remedies for yeast infections vary in duration of effect, ease of implementation, acceptability, and above all, in their ability to bring long-term control and prevention of candida infection. Treatments for Yeast Infections can generally be classified in three ways: home treatments for yeast infections aiming for relief of the symptoms; over-the-counter and prescription medicines; and the holistic all-natural cures.

The chief reason for the enormous interest in yeast infection remedies is the increase in prevalence of this medical condition during recent decades, above all among women. Almost three-quarters of all women will suffer at least one such infection in their lifetime. A patient with yeast infection undergoes the unpleasant hardship of burning sensation in the areas concerned, lasting fatigue, muscular and joint pain, inflammations, drowsiness and lack of energy.

Candiasis, that is yeast infection, is in fact brought on by one of four varieties of candida: Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida tropicalis, and Candida krusei. The most frequently occurring is Candida albicans, which causes some 80% of all yeast infections. Most people have these microbes in the warm, moist corporal areas, such as the mouth, vagina, male sexual organs and the bowels.

Yeast microbes are kept at bay by probiotics (positive microorganisms) and under this control do little or no damage for someone who is healthy. When Candida changes from yeast to fungus however (a condition known as overgrowth of candida provoked by a group of internal factors), this can lead to symptoms of yeast infection.

Over-the-counter and prescription medicaments such as creams, lotions, pills, lozenges and suppositories for the vagina seem to be much in demand as treatment for yeast infections. These medicaments can be sorted into two classes:

1. Drugs base on Azole such as fluconazole and miconazole that serve in the treatment of generic C. albicans WC. These anti-fungal drugs inhibit the creation of ergosterol, part of the yeast cell wall, to weaken the yeast cell before killing it.

2. Polyene antifungals such as nystatin and amphotericin B. These drugs, also anti-fungal, enter the ergosterol yeast cell making artificial holes in the yeast-wall to annihilate the yeast.

The FDA panel (Food and Drug Administration) in 1990 authorized a large part of what used to be prescription anti-yeast medicaments to be sold directly to the customer over-the counter. Availability of these products went up, but so did the unwanted secondary effects like wrong self-diagnosis and overmedication.

To tell the truth, most medication for yeast infection brings no permanent relief and still manages to introduce a series of secondary effects like the elimination of beneficial bacteria in the body, sweating, vomiting, headaches, pain or ulcers.

A number of yeast infection sufferers have elected to avoid medication and use a more natural solution, such as reducing empty carbohydrates and sweets, maintaining personal hygiene, detoxing and using different herbal supplements. Research done recently in the Long Island Jewish Hospital in New York confirms that yogurt (the type containing active lactobacillus acidophilus bacteria) can be effective as a natural remedy for yeast infection of the vagina.

For safety in a remedy for your yeast infection that will work also for the long-term, holistic therapy for yeast infection is the clear recommendation. This therapy for yeast infection is defined in terms of wide changes to diet and lifestyle (for example, stopping Candida-encouraging foods, strengthening the immune system by taking diet supplements of minerals and vitamins, and so on), detox, and the use of specific herbal supplements. Note that because yeast infection is the result of a group of factors from the environment, lifestyle and the body itself, this complex condition is not really tackled by home cures. The holistic approach gives an all-natural way to deal with yeast infection safely to permanently cease its activities and stop its return.
