Yeast Infection And Foggy Brain

If you’re suffering from a yeast infection and foggy brain I know exactly how you feel. I was in your position once, and with the help of my doctor it got worse. Then I was in the cycle of, he will know what’s wrong next time I go to see him. He must know what to prescribe me. That’s when I found out what he was prescribing me wasn’t doing any good, and just making everything worse.



Anti fungals and anti depressants

Being prescribed oral anti fungals and anti depressants doesn’t do anything to cure an intestinal yeast infection, and that’s what you have if you’re suffering from chronic yeast infections and other symptoms like a foggy brain.

Intestinal yeast

The Candida yeast in the intestines attaches itself to the intestinal walls in the same way the it attaches itself to the inside of your vagina. When the mutated yeast begins to feed on the walls of the intestines they eventually perforate the walls, and then toxins and tiny food particles can enter the bloodstream through the perforations.

These toxins soon start effecting your whole body, and your brain is one of the effected areas. Foggy brain is a common symptom of an intestinal yeast infection, and a foggy brain can be accompanied with other symptoms that effect your memory and concentration. Symptoms like irritability, memory loss short concentration span as well as many others. Everyone’s symptoms do vary depending on the level of toxins in their blood.

Curing your yeast infection and foggy brain

To cure an intestinal yeast infection you can only do it naturally. If you’re taking oral anti fungal drugs at the moment they will only make your infection worse because all they do is kill the yeast, and are part of the cause of your yeast infection.

There’s no point in killing the yeast if you continue to do other things that help the Candida survive in your intestines. One of the biggest mistakes most people make when suffering from intestinal yeast infections is continue feeding the yeast by eating the foods that the yeast loves when they’re trying to kill it. And mistakes like this can send your progress backwards.

Getting help

To successfully cure your intestinal yeast infection, and put an end to your foggy brain and all the other symptoms you’re suffering from it’s best to get the help from someone who knows everything there is to know about ridding your body of yeast.

I used the help of Sarah Summer. I was so lucky in the fact that Sarah Summer’s anti Candida program was the first one I tried, and it worked.

Causes Of Vaginal Yeast Infections

There are a few main causes of vaginal yeast infections which are talked about below. 75% of women get a vaginal yeast infection at some time in their life, and there is always a cause. Knowing the cause of your infection can prevent it becoming recurrent, and then becoming an annoying problem for weeks or even months.

What is a yeast infection

A yeast infection is a fungal infection caused by the mutation of the Candida Albicans yeast that lives in all of us. It’s only when one of your natural defenses is compromised that the harmless yeast mutates into an aggressive fungus, and then starts causing your symptoms.

Antibiotics use

Antibiotics are the biggest cause of yeast infections. Your body has friendly bacteria living in and on it that keeps all other bacteria and fungus under control. When you take antibiotics for an infection they kill all of the bacteria living in your body, and this includes your friendly bacteria. When the friendly bacteria has been killed the Candida Albicans yeast mutates because there is nothing left to stop it from getting out of control.

Diabetes

If you suffer from diabetes you’re more prone to yeast infections because of the rises in your blood sugar levels. If you are suffering from diabetes and you get frequent yeast infections you can talk to your doctor about a change in your medication if the one you’re using isn’t regulating your sugar levels enough.

Weakened immune system

A weakened immune system can allow the Candida to mutate. Your immune system is one of your body’s natural defenses against all types of infections. Stress, poor diet and prescription medication all contribute to a weakened immune system.

Feminine hygiene

Feminine hygiene products such a douches are causes of vaginal yeast infections. These products have fragrances and chemicals in them that upset your vaginas natural bacterial and PH balance. This always puts the environment inside your vagina in the favor of the Candida yeast. Vaginas are self cleaning, and they don’t need anything forced into them to clean them out. If you are cleaning your vagina because you have an odor coming from it then you already have an infection, and you need to see your doctor.

Birth control pill

The birth control pill can cause Candida overgrowth in the vagina because the pill effects hormone levels. This effect on hormone levels has an effect on the body’s sugar levels and immune system so the Candida can mutate with these changes in the body going on. Another form of contraception is recommended if you get frequent yeast infections from the birth control pill.

Knowing the cause of your vaginal yeast infection

Once you know the cause of your vaginal yeast infection you can easily cure yourself. Some women don’t know the cause of their infection, and go on treating recurrent yeast infections for a long time. Please don’t be one of those women. Find the cause and you’ll be yeast free in no time.
