A Yeast Infection By Any Other Name Is Still A Yeast Infection

Aug 17, 2007
Since a rose by any other name is still a rose, it stands to reason that a yeast infection by any other name is still a yeast infection, or rather, a yeast allergy. You could take this to mean that you have an allergy to all things yeast and that you can't have it in any form, but in this instance yeast allergy is aimed more towards internal yeast problems which can affect your health.

So, yes, in a way it is an allergy of sorts to yeast. And yes, you should also ideally stay away from such things as foods containing it, and fermented foods. This also includes alcohols, especially such things as beers and wines, if you suffer from this allergy.

Sufferers should also stay away from such things as red meats, refined foods, and mushrooms. Sugars and sweeteners along with carbohydrates should also be avoided.

And just as there are foods that you should stay away from, there are also foods which you should include in your diet.

These foods include vegetables, chicken, brown rice, millet and buckwheat as well as citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruit, vinegar, garlic, cranberries, and yogurt or curd.

Then again you can also include in your diet things like cinnamon and oregano as well. And if you're looking at herbal remedies, you have no need to look any further than Echinacea, Tea Tree oil, Slippery Elm, Aloe, Goldenseal, Yarrow, Comfrey, Sage and Raspberry.

You also have the option of using Mullein, Pau D'arco, Black Walnut hull, Calendula, and Myrrh. The world of herbs in relation to a yeast allergy doesn't end there either. There are many herbs available which can boost a flagging immune system and help to rid your body of yeast producing bacteria.

Besides the use of herbs and dietary changes in the fight against an allergy, you also have the option of using prescription medications and over the counter medications. Both these methods can yield results.

Or you have the option of using preventative measures to help keep an allergy at bay. This is especially useful if you suffer from recurrent yeast allergies.

Preventative measures includes abstaining from sexual intercourse if you or your partner are suffering from an allergy, wearing loose fitting clothing so that the infected area isn't constricted, and also avoiding douches, scented feminine hygiene products and sprays.
