The FACTS about Yeast Infection and White Vinegar

May 15, 2008
In the article below, a former victim of yeast infection and certified nutrition gives us the reasons why white vinegar and wine vinegar are negative factors for recovering from yeast infection. Can any vinegar form part of a diet against yeast infection? Experts working in holistic and alternative treatments say that the white vinegar can make yeast infections grow faster and should not be part of your diet plan.

The basic cause of yeast infection is a fungus called Candida. Candida exists in small amounts in healthy bodies but this is not dangerous. The danger comes when candida multiplies under certain circumstances and then invades the blood circulation from the intestinal tract to generate yeast infection symptoms. This explains why we call the yeast infection candida infection, or candidiasis.

Candiasis can have various factors. I will discuss the aspect of nutrition concerning the right habits and dietary guidelines to help your digestive system. This is in the light of Candida as a primary agent for all different kinds of yeast infections.

In the medical world experts are united in their belief that white sugar, white rice and white flour are all foodstuffs that encourage Candida and can make a yeast infection accelerate.

The overgrowth of Candida will happen even more in an acid environment. It is therefore important to balance out alkalis and acids to make sure that you do not encourage Candida yeast infection. The way to measure this is the pH scale that means "potential hydrogen". The scale has a neutral point of seven and goes up to fourteen the most alkaline and down to zero the most acid. Human blood should be in the range of 7.35 to 7.45. A small difference here can mean serious health problems.

Regrettably, modern lifestyle that is typified by a lack of physical activity, accentuated levels of stress and diets involving high fat and many calories, therefore stimulates the acid level in blood. To maintain the correct balance of acid and alkali, and therefore an environment which does not stimulate Candida, you must eat more of the foods which form alkalis (most fresh fruits and vegetables, green juices, almonds, tofu and any food containing calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, and cesium) and reduce the foods that form acid (most fish, dairy, and grain and meat products).

White vinegar with its PH of 5.5 means that it is very acidic and therefore will encourage Candida overgrowth. Replace such foods with supplements that are alkaline. Vinegars in particular have always been the subject of discussion concerning anti Candida diets. The exception is apple cider vinegar with a pH of 7.5. Use organic apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar.

The alkaline diets are a good first step to moving towards a healthy body and curing Candida and Candida infection but they will not be sufficient on their own for a full and comprehensive yeast infection treatment.

Were you aware that a treatment exists now which is all-natural and holistic to remedy your yeast infection in safety and in permanence by treating all of the contributing causes?
