How To Treat Thrush

Candida, which is also known as thrush or a yeast infection, is one of those problems that people just don’t talk about. No one wants to admit that they are having itching and burning in their genital region, because they just don’t know where it came from.

The symptoms of Candida overgrowth range from uncomfortable to debilitating. Yeast infections, an overgrowth of Candida in the genital region, and thrush, a fungal infection in the mouth, are two of the most familiar conditions associated with Candida. Other symptoms of Candida overgrowth can range from hair loss to chronic fatigue.

But candida is most commonly found in your digestive system. The reason why people don’t get sick because of the mere presence of candida is because good bacteria (called probiotics) keep the candida in check, preventing the fungi from growing to an extent it will do harm to your body.

Candida grows very well in a slightly acidic body environment. Unfortunately many of the more enjoyable items in our diet such as cakes, coke, coffee and alcohol contribute to a acidic body environment. Sugar is a major cause of acidity in the body and also the key food that Candida thrives on.

Your normal treatments for vaginal yeast infections are topical creams and pessaries, etc., which you get over-the-counter or through prescription. And these can work quite well for many women when the instructions are followed correctly.

Of course all of these treatments for thrush work for a while, in varying degrees. But I'll bet what you've found is that your thrush just keeps coming back. Now you're beyond short term, acute treatment. You're searching for something that's actually going to give you permanent relief so you can get back to living a normal life
