Avocado is an Essential Part of a Vaginal Yeast Infection Diet

May 13, 2008
Does a diet that includes avocado help vaginal yeast infection patients to improve their medical status and get alleviation? The answer to this question is not so simple. Although no food in itself is considered to be a treatment against yeast infection, some vegetables including avocado are seen to be highly effective in securing the right environment in the intestines to help stop the aggravation of yeast infection of vagina.

The yeast infection of the vagina, which is also known as vaginal candidiasis, is a scourge for millions of women in the world. In the western hemisphere, three out of four of all women will experience infection of the vagina at least once in their life, and up to one in twelve will suffer from chronic infections. The usual symptoms of the vaginal candidiasis include itching and burning which may be intense in the vulva or the vagina, redness or swelling of the vulva, and frequently discharge that is thick and white and looks like cottage cheese.

This medical problem happens when the microbe called candida, usually found in the human body (mostly in the gut and in small and harmless quantities), grows and multiplies out of bounds. When candida grows like this, it gets into the blood via damaged mucous membranes in the intestine, which can result in both systemic and local (including the vaginal) yeast infections.

Several internal and external factors that contribute to the damage of the delicate internal equilibrium that keeps candida in check. They include the damage of the acid-alkaline equilibrium in both the digestive and the circulatory system.

The "acid-alkaline balance" is described by the "pH" level in the human body. A pH of seven is defined as neutral on this scale, which goes from zero to fourteen. A number higher than seven means that the environment is alkaline, where as a number lower means that your internal context is more acidic. Human blood can range from 7.35 to 7.45 and in fact 7.4 is considered the best. Nonetheless, deviations from this normal range can cause severe impact on your health. In this way when the blood has too much acid, the body is more at risk to disease and the ideal context for candida over-multiplication comes about (candida multiplies much quicker in an environment that is acid).

Stress and lack of sleep amongst other things in the western lifestyle, in combination with poor diet plans, increase the acidity of your internal environment. But by switching to a diet that is balanced with alkali, the proper acid and alkaline equilibrium can be recovered. This diet needs to observe two main principles: increased consumption of foods that form alkalis and moderate consumption of foods that form acids.

Avocado , apricots , figs , cabbage, carrots, spinach, almonds, asparagus and lettuce are examples of foods that form alkalis. Other foods in this list include, cucumber , lemon, potatoes , soybeans, tomatoes, grapefruit , etc. On the other hand meat, olives, fish, rice cheese, bread and eggs are all acid-forming foods. An important point is that foods in the second group are still to be eaten but to moderation combined with the right proportion of foods in the first alkali-forming group.

Bear in mind that as the yeast infection of the vagina is a complex phenomenon, brought on by numerous internal and external aspects, neither avocado nor any other nutrients can replace the treatment of candidiasis. Increasing alkaline foods in your diet is just the first but necessary step of a holistic and comprehensive yeast infection treatment of the vagina.

Did you know that there is now the treatment which is holistic and all-natural and which can stop vaginal yeast infection permanently? It's a treatment with healthy dietary plans and alterations in the lifestyle , meaning reduction of stress and the use of supplements that are homeopathic and herbal together with detoxification and cleansing . Using these unique protocols against candida can reverse and prevent all kinds of candida ( including vaginal infections) speedily and safely.
