The Pros and Cons of Yogurt for Yeast Infection

Jun 28, 2008
Will eating yogurt help victims of yeast infection to limit this painful and weakening medical problem? The answer to this question is not straightforward. Although no food element has been shown to beat yeast infection in itself, many medical studies indicate a surprising connection between eating different types of yogurt daily and limiting yeast infection.

Also known by the name of candidiasis or Candida infection, yeast infection is caused by different kinds of Candida fungus which are usually present in many parts of the body. This presence includes the genitals, the intestinal tract, among others. The intestinal flora and the immune system in a healthy individual will limit what candida can do to over grow. However if allowed to, Candida can over grow without bounds and penetrate into the bloodstream before getting to very many parts of the body. It is in this case that these symptoms of candidiasis arise.

The death of friendly bacteria in the gut and the debilitation of immune capabilities lead to a destruction of the internal balance that should be keeping candida bacteria under control. This situation is the result of many internal and external factors.

This explains why yogurt that contains beneficial bacteria has been suggested in many reports by doctors as a remedy. The probiotic bacteria help to reinforce the immune system and assist in its combat against yeast infections. The yogurts that contain probiotics called Lactobacillus acidophilus are the ones that help the healthy bacteria in the intestinal lining. 8 ounces per day of such yogurt will make a significant difference in reducing Candida levels back to where they should be.

Note that when yogurt is made from cow's milk that is non organic, it may have several undesirable features. The reason is for the antibiotics which are injected into cows and therefore get into the cow's milk. These antibiotics destroy good bacteria in your intestines. In addition cow's milk products were meant for calves and not for humans and are therefore less easy to digest. When available use organic goats and sheep's milk which are better adapted to fighting yeast infections.

Organic yogurt that does not have added sugar can help relieve candidiasis symptoms, intake to excess of such dairy products can have a counterproductive effect on your medical state. This is because most milk products stimulate mucus and possibly allergies and can therefore stimulate Candida overgrowth.

Candidiasis is a complex phenomenon and can be brought on by a number of different factors. Therefore yogurts or any other food elements will not in themselves replace the necessary full treatment of this issue. Adding such probiotic foods to your food plan is good, but only the first step of a complete holistic solution.

Did anybody tell you that there is now a full therapy which is all-natural and holistic and that can cure and halt yeast infections forever? By dealing with the factors that cause Candida you can get your natural health back, destroy excess Candida and be free permanently from yeast infection.
