Yoga and Yeast Infection: a SURPRISING Connection

May 8, 2008
Can a daily yoga session be beneficial for victims of yeast infection? Although the real link between yeast infection and yoga has not yet been fully stated, recent research on yoga pointed to interesting information on the subject, to indicate why yoga principles observed daily will likely be of advantage to victims of yeast infection.

It is the candida fungi, which cause yeast infection. These microbes are typically found in the human body where it is warm and moist. These places include the mouth, the throat, the intestines, and the genitals. Yeast infection is often called candidiasis for this reason. When candida is kept in check by friendly bacteria, then your health is not in danger. Nonetheless, Candida can accelerate to grow out of bounds in some situations. It then grows roots that tear into the gut walls to allow Candida to invade the blood circulation and start to cause symptoms of yeast infection all over the body.

A variety of items can result in Candida over multiplication and these may include:

1. A weak immune system (perhaps because of the other health problems, bad eating, the use of antibiotics which in turn weaken the immune system) that cannot control the out break of Candida.

2. Overeating of foods that encourage Candida (sweets, caffeine, alcohol, refined carbohydrates and other similar foods).

3. Stress and / or a weak mental state that in turn debilitates the immune system and raises blood sugar levels which all go to encourage Candida overgrowth.

4. The toxins that can start to accumulate in the intestine and the blood thus preventing proper digestion. This also stresses the liver and makes it difficult for your body to carry out its normal defense processes against Candida.

Yoga is one of the oldest practices in the spiritual universe. It puts the emphasis on conscious living and using the potential for happiness and physical and mental health that each of us has inside us. The yoga techniques of correct breathing and physical positions can be highly beneficial to sufferers of yeast infections, because they can significantly and positively alter stress levels and strengthen the immune system.

Yoga also demonstrates the elimination in the human organism of toxins by fasting. This notion of cleansing is one of the important features of the philosophy of yoga. This way a digestive system can be freed and accelerated and toxins in the blood can be cleansed. Thus a number of primary factors encouraging Candida can be got rid off. In general this is what is required for many diseases in the western world: getting rid off mucus, eliminating toxins and restarting the natural elimination process of the body.

The principles that the yoga philosophy also lays down concerning diets puts the emphasis on the need for balanced food and eating in a harmonious way regarding the needs and the composition of your body. Optimizing diets and proper food plans to enhance digestion is also of help in the combat against the yeast infection.

This of course is just one part of a total solution and not a remedy in itself, even though the yoga principles and practices can be very beneficial to your health and your fight against candida invasion. Combining these principles with alternative medicine programs, such as changes in diet, elimination of toxins, killing off Candida and using supplements based on herbs and vitamins will all help to restore the natural intestinal equilibrium.

Did anyone tell you that the holistic approach using all-natural guidelines is the only way to deal with the inner environments that has resulted in yeast infection and in this way to rid yourself of all symptoms of Candida and prevent such problems from ever coming back?
