Yeast Infection Treatment Revealed

Apr 9, 2008
The Yeast Infection Cure Hidden From You By The Pharmaceutical Corporations REVEALED.

Yeast infection treatments differ in duration of effect, ease of application, acceptability, and above all, in their possibilities for effecting long-term control and stopping Candida infection. These remedies can generally be put in one of three categories: home treatments for relief of symptoms of yeast infections; over-the-counter and prescription medicines; and the holistic all-natural treatments.

Some three-quarters of all women will undergo a minimum of one yeast infection in their life. These patients will suffer burning sensations in the areas concerned, pain in muscles and joints, chronic fatigue, rashes, drowsiness and lack of energy. This is why there is so much interest in remedies for yeast infection: the increase in prevalence over the last decades of this medical condition especially for women.

Candidiasis, 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 back by probiotics (positive microorganisms) and under this control have little or now negative effect on a healthy person. When however Candida evolves from yeast to fungus (a condition known as overgrowth of candida resulting from a group of internal factors), this can generate symptoms of candidiasis.

Lotions, creams, pills, lozenges and suppositories for the vagina amongst other over-the-counter and prescription medicaments are apparently the preference of many people for dealing with Candida infections. These medicaments can be separated into two categories:

1. Drugs made from azole such as fluconazole and miconazole that are used in the treatment of generic C. albicans WC. These anti-fungal drugs work against the formation of ergosterol, part of the wall of the cell, to stop it from being created in order to debilitate the yeast cell and kill it.

2. Polyene antifungals such as nystatin and amphotericin B. These drugs, also anti-fungal, make artificial holes in the yeast-wall to annihilate the yeast. The action is again on ergosterol.

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 candidiasis 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.

Recent research in the Long Island Jewish Hospital in New York indicates that eating yogurt (if it contains active lactobacillus acidophilus bacteria) can be an effective natural cure for vaginal Candida infection. Moreover, many patients have elected to not use medication and adopt a more natural solution, reducing empty carbohydrates and candy, introducing better personal hygiene, detoxing and using various herbal supplements.

For safety in a treatment for your yeast infection that will work also for the long-term, holistic therapy is the clear recommendation. This therapy 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 candidiasis 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.
