The Cause of Yeast Infection
Yeast Infection Treatment is something most of us do not talk about openly. Apparently that is because yeast infection can be a very sensitive and personal matter or problem. That is perfectly normal and acceptable as it is our intrinsic human nature. However, remedy and treatment are urgent to get rid of the frustrating problem of yeast infection.
First of all, we need to recognize the root cause of yeast infection in order to deal with it correctly. Yeast infection is not a skin disorder or skin problem. If anyone has some symptoms of yeast infection, they should get a diagnosis done and know what is causing the infection. This is necessary especially when the symptoms and problem recur. The root cause of yeast infection is now known to be originated from our digestive tract or intestinal tract. In other words, it is an underlying health problem as opposed to a skin ailment.
The presence of candida albicans in our intestinal tracts and genital areas is constant and is quite harmless. But when certain factors make the body system shifts, these trigger the yeast to its rapid multiplication and completely takes over thus resulting to full-grown yeast infection. Yeast Infection Treatment is what you must do in controlling them and avoiding candida albicans overgrowth.
Yeast infection, Monilia or Candidiasis in medical term, can be caused by certain factors that when left untreated can be transmitted to your sexual partner. Weakened immune system, allergic reactions, sugar level elevation, increased pH, hormonal fluxes, injury, and the imbalance of good bacteria, probiotics, in our body are just among these factors.
When you consult a doctor for your yeast infection problem,you will most likely receive some form of antifungal prescription to get rid of the fungus causing the infection. This is necessary when the problem keeps recurring and does not seem to go away. Sometimes, the treatment could take months in order to fully eliminate the culprit from your body. However, you need to realize that conventional medicine does not cure your yeast infection problem, it merely treats the symptoms and give you temporary relief from the problem.
When the symptoms are mild, you will likely receive some form of cream to apply over the affected area. Some creams are available as over-the-counter products, differing in strength from their prescription counterparts. But, when the symptoms are severe and the culprit is known to be specific, oral prescription drug will likely to be given and the treatment cycle can be lengthy because the antifungal drug, similar to antibiotics, is taken as scheduled to cover the life cycle of the fungus growth cycle.
The main problem with prescription drug, as mentioned above, is not treating the cause. You may think it is treating the cause since the drug is aiming to kill the fungus. But, the origin of the fungus is not the fungus. The true origin of the fungus is in the intestinal tract. That is what conventional medicine fails to address. Furthermore, prescription drug will try to wipe out the fungus. The aim is to kill all. But, that is not the real ecosystem of our body. Fungus or yeast is harmless when it is at an acceptable percentage. It is the over-growth of the yeast that causes the problem and things get out of hand and control. The best way to understand it is like the situation of antibiotics, which aim to completely wipe out all forms of bacteria. However, there should be a healthy ratio of good and bad bacteria in our body. That is the fundamental problem of antibiotics, and today conventional medical practice begins to realize that and starts to prescribe probiotics. The same scenario can be seen with antifungal prescription. There will be side effects with it. Certainly, your doctor will tell you there will be some side effects of stomach upset, etc. However, the side effects of killing all fungus are either seldom mentioned or not explained at all.
I hope you don’t misinterpret that we are trying to discredit conventional medicine. We are not. Medicine has been and will always be with the objective of treating the symptoms. And that is necessary in order for us to function with sanity, particularly when pain is part of the process. What we are trying to address here is, once your unbearable symptoms are taken care of, it is essential to deal with the underlying cause of the problem. If you fail to do this part, you are likely to face recurrence of the problem down the line. Do take note that yeast over growth can cause a whole lot of other problems other than the common ones you may have known. We will try to address these in the future.
