Having a yeast infection can be one of the more frustrating things to live with. At times, the symptoms of your yeast infection will go away and you may think that you have bested the infection only to have the symptoms return later on.
It is frustrating because even though you have been taking your antibiotics and probiotics and using your yeast infection creams as directed the infection still remains and the symptoms are constantly there! You can do more than take medications and creams to cure your yeast infection and rid yourself of all the itching, discharge, headaches, fatigue and all the other symptoms that make you feel generally unwell.
Having the right home yeast infection cure will help you to rid not only the symptoms of a yeast infection but the infection itself so that you won’t continue to have flare ups in the future.
Why Antibiotics Don’t Always Work
One of the most prescribed medications for yeast infections are antibiotics. Most doctors prescribe antibiotics because they are used to prescribing them for most infections and illness. You may have even asked your doctor for a prescription of antibiotics because somewhere someone told you that antibiotics cure everything.
Simply put, antibiotics cannot cure you of yeast infections because yeast infections are not from bacteria! A yeast infection is caused by a fungal called candida; yes it’s a fungus and not a bacterium.
Plus, good bacteria are one of the best ways to kill candida, and antibiotics kill off these healthy bacteria making it so that your body cannot rid itself of the yeast infection. And a loss of the good bacteria will also lead to you feeling unwell.
So, why do people take antibiotics that only treat bacteria problems for a fungal infection? The only clear answer is that most people are confused as to what a yeast infection really is and how to cure it.
Instead of taking antibiotics home yeast infection cures promote having probiotics, improving your immune system and getting your body balanced with what it needs. Probiotics promote the good bacteria that are able to fight off and kill the candida internally.
When you have healthy good bacteria in your system you have a better chance of getting rid of the yeast infection than by taking antibiotics.
How A Home Yeast Infection Cure Works
You can take medication while doing a home yeast infection cure but understand that you are merely stopping the symptoms and not the infection. Home yeast infection treatments work by getting you healthy so that you can get over the infection. This is done by improving your immune system, raising the amount of probiotics in your system and having the right kind of nutrients.
Once the infection is gone continuing to follow the home yeast infection treatment will ensure that the infection won’t come back. This is especially important because once the symptoms are gone you may think that the infection is gone.
But if you stop too soon the surviving candida can multiply again and the infection can return. So, always be sure that you continue to use the treatment for at least a month after the symptoms go away and you will never see them return.
