Let me reveal 5 of the most important facts that you need to know regarding your candida yeast infection in order to fully understand the nature of Candida infection and what really needs to be done in order to fully control and eliminate its related symptoms for good.
Fact #1: There Is an Overload of Conflicting Information and Often Ineffective Advice on How To Treat Yeast Infections
If you suffer from any type of yeast infection, it is highly likely that you have been bombarded by so much conflicting advice about how to treat candida infection that it becomes truly confusing! Believe me, I understand!
Some yeast infection “gurus” tell you to avoid all fruits, soy, and carbs, others tell you that soy is actually good for your health and that eating whole grains and some fruit wouldn’t interfere with your yeast infection healing process. Some say boric or caprylic acid are excellent; others say to avoid these at all costs. Some say apple cider vinegar is great for treating external yeast infections, others tell you it can actually aggravate your condition. Some say the only way to cure yeast infections is to starve Candida with an anti-Candida diet, others say diet is not a factor when it comes to curing yeast infection, probiotics are. I can give you a dozen more examples but you get the point.
Fact #2: Men, Children, and Babies Suffer From Yeast Infections, Not Just Women.
Contrary to common belief, yeast infections do not effect women only. Since candida yeast infection is a systematic problem with deep rooted internal causes, it can effect anyone : Men, women, children and babies. Candida yeast infection can be severe or dormant and can manifest itself in a myriad of symptoms, both physical and emotional, external and internal.
Fact #3: Yeast Infection Symptoms Vary From One Person To Another and Often Change As The Candida Infection Develops since each of us has:
1. Different candida infection severities
2. Different levels of immune strength
3. Different levels of healthy probiotics
4. Varying levels of stress
5. Several other individual factors that affect the ability of candida to multiply and to cause harm.
The symptoms of candida infection vary from one person to another. Moreover, because candida develops in time and due to different genetic makeup, symptoms can change from one day to another in the same person. This is the one of the reasons that one person can suffer from genital yeast infection and migraines and the other person with Candida yeast infection can experience rashes, allergies, oral thrush and chronic fatigue.
Fact #4: Drugs, Creams or Probiotics Cannot Cure Candida Infection.
Drugs, creams, and lotions are designed to tackle the symptoms of yeast infections, not the real cause. This is why most conventional treatments for candida infection which work as a temporary band-aid solution, fail to work in the long run. Even probiotic therapy which is considered an alternative, natural treatment that re-establishes the balance between the good bacteria and the bad bacteria in your digestive tract, fails to work in the long run simply because the root cause of Candida infection is still ignored.
Fact #5: Candida Infection is Not a Myth But a Serious Condition That Can Cause Great Harm To Your Body If Neglected.
Let’s make this clear: Candida infection is not a problem with your skin, genitals, head, muscles or bones. Candida infection is an internal and systematic problem. It’s a disorder that effects your whole body and manifests in a myriad of symptoms. Since our bodies are designed to protect us against the takeover of microorganisms such as candida albicans, when you do have a yeast infection, it is simply a big warning sign that something is WRONG inside your body and that it needs to be corrected. Failing to diagnose and fix this problem in a timely manner can result is far more severe and chronic symptoms and disorders (as I explain later) which can seriously danger your health and well-being.
