Did you know that three out of four women will have at least one yeast infection in their life? And that actually nearly half of all women will have two or more? You are not alone when you suffer from a yeast infection. It’s a very common condition and luckily it can be in many cases treated through homeopathic medication and completely natural.
The condition is mostly known as yeast infection but it’s also known as candidiasis or thrush. When we talk of yeast infections we often refer to the vaginal type which many women suffer from. Yeast infections can however also be found in the mouth (on the tongue, thrush), the skin, and nails. All yeast infections that are referred to as candidiasis or thrush are a fungal infection (mycosis) of any of the Candida species (all yeasts).
Where’s the yeast coming from?
Yeast does grow all over your body, typically on your skin. It’s most often found in fat folds, armpits and vaginas. The yeast feels off of the sugar and carbohydrates of the body. Everybody has yeast as part of their body and lives. The immune system usually keeps it in check but there’s cases where the yeast grows uncontrolled and causes yeast infections.
The yeast is controlled through probacteria. Specifically the acidophilus bacteria creates an environment that is acidic and that prevents the yeast from growing. The yeast can start to multiply and grow into an infection in the case that sugars are high in the body or the acidophilus is low.
