Remember that any substance that you use, even "natural" is similar to a drug, it is just not called that. Answer

I believe you can cure a vaginal yeast infection by applying natural yogurt to your vagina. I read this is a magazine a while back and my Grandmother tried it and it did help but it didn't completely cure the yeast infection. Personally, if you keep getting recurring yeast infections then see your doctor. Your partner may also be re-infecting you, so both of you should be checked.

How do you get a yeast infection?

A vaginal yeast infection can be caused by many things, including tight jeans or other non-breathable clothing and underwear because these conditions create a warm moist environment that the yeast thrive in. In general, a yeast infection occurs when your system is out of balance and it can be easily cured by fuyan pill. The balance that exists between the good bacteria and yeast, both necessary in your system, can be tipped either way, causing problems. Too much sugar in the diet and a weakened immune system, as well as a natural tendency towards yeast growth can all contribute to the problem.

How do you cure yeast infection at home?

Basically the reason you have a yeast infection is because there's an imbalance in your body. A healthy person has a balance between the yeast in their body and the good bacteria in their body. Too much yeast, you have a yeast infection. Too much bacteria, you have a bacterial infection. So, when you have a yeast infection you essentially have too much yeast in your body relative to the good bacteria. The natural way to treat it and bring back that balance is to starve the yeast and introduce more good bacteria into your body. Oh and BTW - That's why you often get relief from using the over the counter meds temporarily, and then the yeast infection comes back. The creams aren't changing the source of the problem. They are just killing the yeast they come in contact with, and not balancing the yeast/bacteria in your body and actually sometimes end up making things a lot worse. Oh BTW2 - That's also why many times you'll get a yeast infection after using antibiotics. Antibiotics kill all the bacteria in your body, the good and the bad. When that happens the balance between the yeast and good bacteria is off, and once again and you get a yeast infection. Things you can add to your diet (to help promote good bacteria) are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans Things you should remove from your diet (to starve the yeast) are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour, alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold Changing your diet will definitely get you on the road to balancing the yeast and good bacteria, but what I would also recommend is to use a homeopathic solution to help naturally speed up the process. I always feel if there's a natural way to do something, then it's best to avoid the chemicals. I would look for an natural product, that can be taken orally to promote re-growth of the good bacteria in your body. There are a few out there, I think they are probably all pretty good. One that I have used and was very effective for me was is yeastrol.

Does doxycycline cure a yeast infection in males?

One of the side effects of Doxycycline is that it will possible provoke a yeast infection, rather than cure it. In fact, it's one of the main causes of Male yeast infections. There are other things that can provoke a male yeast infection as well, such as Diabetes, HIV, and Nonoxynol-9 [Found in Trojan Condom Lubricant.] Either way, there are cures to male yeast infections. Before taking any drugs, it's recommended that an individual who thinks they have a yeast infection to see a doctor immediately, especially if they have never had one before. There are two main types of prescription drugs you can use to cure a yeast infection. The first one is fluconazole, which can be used to kill other fungi, as well at the Candida yeast infection. Fluconazole is more commonly known by the brand name Diflucan. Beware though, allergies to fluconazole are not uncommon. The second prescription drug that can be taken is ketoconazole, which kills every fungus. There is a drawback to using ketoconazole, because it is not good for your liver. There is also a slight chance that it may reduce the amount of testosterone you produce. Ketoconazole is more commonly known as Nizoral, which can be prescribed by any doctor. While male yeast infections can cause unbearable symptoms [itching of the head, soreness, discharge, smell] it will not do any serious damage. It is a good idea, though, to get it checked out. Sometimes these symptoms are caused by other diseases, such as HIV.

Yougurt, a natural plain yogurt is all you need. Eat it and also apply it to your vagina, you also want to be able to push some yoghurt up there too.

Believe me, it works and is a wonderful, great, natural way to treat this annoying problem.

What is yeast used for besides food?

I've ben prescribed to eat baker's yeast to help clear up an infection and it was a successful treatment. Yeast from grapes is used to jump-start fermentation of fruits that have no natural yeast, when wishing to make a wine from them. The yeast breaks down the fruit's sugar into carbon dioxide gas and alcohol. And in that way I successfully produced wines from carobs, loquats, grapefruit and several other fruits (not liquors, but wines).
