UNCOVER the Signs Showing that You Might Have Yeast Infection

Jun 24, 2008
Many people believe that they might have a yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, and try to solve the problem all by themselves using over the counter medication. But in truth yeast infection can be easily confused with other medical ailments. So what should you look for as signs that you could have yeast infection? It's a difficult question. Medical studies show that much of the diagnoses of this medical problem that are made actually mistake symptoms of infection by bacteria (such as discharge from the vagina) as an indication of the yeast infection. They then go on to confuse skin infection with Candida which can be mixed up with bacterial intertrigo and flexural psoriasis simply because these problems display similar signs of lesions and rashes.

You need to acquire basic knowledge and precise information as to the nature of candidiasis, its reasons and what it really looks like if you want to avoid misdiagnoses and erroneous solutions. It's all the more important because this can worsen your medical problem if the real hidden cause is being ignored.

When the beneficial flora in the gut and the immune system work together to contain the candida microbes, they are not a risk to your body. But sometimes, candida can get out of control and cause serious damage to your health system. Several types of the Candida fungus can cause yeast infections even if Candida is usually found in small amounts anyway inside your body: it lives in places like the rectum, the vagina, in between folds of skin, in the intestine and so on. Factors aggravating and provoking infection are:

1. Disappearance of beneficial microbes killed off by use of antibiotics or by mental stress.

2. an immune system that no longer functions correctly (an essential component in the fight against Candida).

3. Bad diet, incorrect nutrition and intake of foods that Candida feeds on to over grow inside your body.

Candida can circulate all over your body in conditions of overgrowth. It can generate signs of yeast infection both locally and systemically. The reason for this is that Candida in the guts develops roots that hook into the intestine and penetrate into the blood circulation.

Rashes, burning sensations and itching are all typical local signs of yeast infection as are discharge from the vagina or the penis and different lesions on areas of the bodies that have been affected. The signs, as we saw above, can be readily mixed up with a number of different skin problems and bacterial infections. So to make a preliminary diagnosis of candidiasis, you need to know how to recognize systemic signs as well, including strange fatigue, vision blurring, cravings for white flour and sugar, allergies, problems with your sinus, allergies to food and so on.

A simple test at home can also be conducted to find out if your condition is severe. In the morning before you put anything in your mouth, get a clean glass. Fill the class with water and then put a generous amount of your saliva into the glass of water. Every fifteen minutes during one hour look at the water to see what is happening. Strings traveling down into the water, like legs, indicate that you may have a candida yeast infection. This would be a mild case of infection. Your saliva would sink to the bottom of the glass if you have an advanced or serious case of infection.

If this is the diagnosis, candidiasis must be treated as quickly as possible and in an effective manner to stop potential health difficulties. Left neglected, this condition can often degenerate into serious systemic infection - this can mean a weakening, painful and threatening medical state that may even be fatal.

It is the holistic approach with its unique combination of modifications to diet and lifestyle which will be of the most benefit, managing your stress and using vitamin and mineral supplements to reinforce your immune system as well as getting rid of toxins and cleansing. Did anyone tell you that this therapy can now help you and remedy and prevent yeast infection safely and permanently? This holistic treatment brings you a solution which is all-natural to the problem of yeast infection to treat not only the symptoms but also for the long term to eliminate the underlying causes.
