The Shocking Connection between Antibiotics and Yeast Infection

Jun 20, 2008
Medical data from recent research suggests that there is a relation between the aggravation of a medical problem known as yeast infection or candidiasis, and the use of antibiotics. Many of my customers want to know if yeast infections are really caused by using antibiotics. The answer to this question is somewhat complicated. It should also be noted that the hidden causes for yeast infection go further than the simple use of antibiotics as they are more complex.

Candida is present in the human body in relatively small quantities that should do no harm. Beneficial microorganisms balance out candida and make for a properly functioning immune system. Candida is a single cell bacterium. So why, if it is always present in your body, does it start to cause candidiasis? It is when candida grows out of control and turns your intestine into a breeding ground for multiplication. Candida then begins to tear the internal tissue of your gut to get into the bloodstream. It is when the normal proportions of the candida and beneficial bacteria get out of balance that the yeast infection symptoms start to show.

The delicate environments in the intestines can also be affected by the intake of antibiotics over the long term. Although just one of the reasons for infection by yeast which on the whole is a much more complicated, there are however two reasons for this:

1. The debilitation of the immune system and the death of beneficial microorganisms is the result of antibiotics that kill bacteria without discrimination. This means that a correctly working immune system is no longer available to protect the body.

2. Antibiotics also disturb the "pH" equilibrium of the human body. This is a technical way of describing what is happening between negatively charged ions (alkali - forming) and positively charged ions (acid-forming). The more acidic the "pH" environment becomes, the more danger there is of candida overgrowth.

For the reasons mentioned above, you should avoid or at least minimize wherever possible the use of antibiotics. It should be noted that we are often exposed to antibiotics and not only during medical treatments for problems. Dairy products which are non organic are filled with antibiotics among with other chemical products. For this reason such dairy products should be replaced with healthier options like milk products from goats and sheep.

In addition to the outer symptoms, a solution exists to eradicate all kinds of infections caused by candida. Did you know that there is a holistic treatment which is 100 percent natural and which can treat the internal courses of the yeast infection?
