Can Candida Overgrowth Be Cured By Diet Alone

Can Candida overgrowth be cured by diet alone? Diet alone is not a cure for Candida overgrowth, but it is part of a successful Candida cure.

What is Candida overgrowth

Candida overgrowth is an overgrowth of a usually harmless yeast that has mutated into a fungus. Fungi are very hard to rid your body of, and although in some people a poor diet has caused their overgrowth, just reversing the process back to a healthy diet won’t have much effect as a cure.

It would probably slow down the rate at which the fungus is spreading but if your diet is no longer feeding the Candida the Candida will just feed of the cells of your body.

All fungal infections need treatment as soon as possible

Fungal infections can spread so fast that they need to be treated as quickly as possible. If your Candida overgrowth doesn’t spread in area it will be burrowing its way further into your body’s tissue. It doesn’t matter whether the infection is in your vagina or in your intestines, it will continue to feed off of your cells until you attempt to kill it.

Even with treatment the Candida yeast can continue to infect you if it isn’t done properly. The important thing is you attack the cause as well as the symptoms you’re suffering from.

As a cure for Candida overgrowth diet alone is fairly useless, but it is an important part of ridding yourself of the Candida yeast for good.

Does Chlamydia Clear With A Yeast Infection Treatment

“Does Chlamydia clear with a yeast infection treatment?” Many women ask this question because a yeast infection treatment will appear to be curing Chlamydia while you’re using it. This is very dangerous, and I will explain why.

What is Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease, and is the most common STD in America. This STD infects 2.8 million Americans every year, and is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia Trachomatis.

Chlamydia symptoms

One of the major problems with suffering from Chlamydia is, it can have no symptoms, and is known as the “silent disease.” Chlamydia with no symptoms affects 75% of women and 50% of men who have contracted this bacterial infection. Symptoms will usually appear 2 to 3 weeks after you have been infected.

These symptoms ( when they appear ) are…

  • Abdominal pain
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Burning sensation when urinating

In men they will include…

  • Burning and itching around the opening of the penis
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Penis discharge

If you’re familiar with the symptoms of a yeast infection the you will notice that the symptoms of both infections have similar qualities.

If Chlamydia isn’t treated correctly

If you’re suffering from Chlamydia and isn’t treated correctly it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease ( PID ). This can then lead to permanent damage to your reproductive organs and leave you infertile.

See your doctor

Many women misdiagnose themselves, and this is the reason why you must see your doctor at the first sign of any vaginal infection. The examination is intimate and can be embarrassing, but this short examination is a lot better than being left infertile.

Treating Chlamydia with a yeast infection treatment

If you do wrongly diagnose yourself as suffering from a yeast infection the treatment you can ease the symptoms of Chlamydia. This can make you think that you do have a yeast infection, and this is one way thousands of women diagnose themselves every month.

Just doing this for one course of treatment, and then deciding to go to see your doctor can make you too late to repair irreversible damage.

A yeast infection treatment will only cure a yeast infection, and will only mask the symptoms of any other infection you have.

Please don’t be someone who wrongly diagnoses themselves, and has to live with the results.
