The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Not All Bacteria are Harmful, but Yeast Overgrowth Causes Serious and Uncomfortable Vaginal Infections
We’re about to tell you something you may not want to hear: yeast molecules live on and in the human body. Known as Candida, they specifically reside in the colon, mucous membranes and vagina. Don’t worry –their growth is kept in balance by healthy bacteria that also live in and on the body.
 
When kept under control, yeast poses little harm to the human body. But the key here is control, meaning Candida can grow prolifically to create infection. The symptoms of yeast overgrowth are hard to miss and cause thrush in the mouth and yeast infections in the vagina.
One Woman’s Battle with Candida
“For years, I battled recurring yeast infections that infringed on my life,” reports Ryann, a 24 year-old law student. “Sex was definitely out. Walking during the day was uncomfortable, and I was afraid to swim. Each morning I woke and rubbed ointment on my vaginal lips in a desperate attempt to heal my body. It was awful.”
 
Ryann’s use of the word “awful” is appropriate when it comes to yeast overgrowth. Itching, burning, thick white discharge, and pain in the vagina may sound like fodder for humor, but they are no laughing matter. As Ryann said, they interfere with daily activities, from walking to using the restroom.
 
“I felt like I was carrying this big, ugly secret,” Ryann continues. “I was too embarrassed to talk about my infections. I even stopped going to the doctor, who seemed exasperated by my constant need for ointment and antibiotics. Other than the usual advice – wear cotton underwear, don’t sit in wet clothing and avoid tobacco use – he couldn’t offer much help.”
 
A Breakthrough Finding
One crucial element Ryann’s doctor missed was the underlying reason for her Candida. Yeast overgrowth can be caused by a variety of factors, chief among which is weak immunity. A woman’s immune system can be influenced by everything from diet and sleep to stress and exercise. Immune deficiencies pave the way for reduced numbers of healthy bacteria and increased numbers of yeast. A Candida takeover, followed by a nasty infection, then ensues.
 
As it happens, Ryann’s immune system was weak – as a result of overuse of antibiotics. The problem with these prescription pills, is that they do not discriminate when attacking bacteria within the body. This means they kill healthy and unhealthy flora. Where yeast infections are concerned, the healthy bacteria cannot regenerate as rapidly as Candida molecules. Antibiotic use can therefore contribute to recurring yeast infections.
 
“I had no idea my antibiotics were making the situation worse,” Ryann says. “My doctor never warned me. If I’d known, I would have immediately stopped using them and opted for an organic remedy.”
 
The Need for Balanced Hormones and Herbal Supplementation
But Ryann’s problem was more complicated than that of mere immunity. Oral contraceptives had disrupted her body’s balance of estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen is one of the single most crucial chemicals to maintaining a healthy vaginal environment. It prompts the release of vaginal fluid that expels bad bacteria, toxins and dead skin cells. It also encourages the growth of beneficial flora that keep yeast cells at bay.
 
“I had to see a gynecologist in order to understand the functions of my own body,” she says. “But her explanations clicked, and today I’m pleased to say I no longer struggle with yeast infections.”
 
In addition to some much-needed education, Ryann also began taking an herbal remedy to balance her hormones, boost immunity and encourage normal vaginal discharge. (SEE: Natural Vaginal Infection Relief Formula) Her choice was Vaginal Infection Relief & Detoxification Formula, blended with ingredients like Fenugreek and Fo Ti to address the bio-nutrient needs of females.
