Intestinal Yeast Infections ( Candidiasis )

Candidiasis is the common name for an intestinal yeast infection. This type of fungal infection is a lot more difficult to treat than a vaginal yeast infection due to the way in which the Mutated Candida lives in the intestines.

What fungus does to your intestines

Once the harmless Candida has mutated into a fungus it grows rhizoids ( little hooks ) that allows it to attach itself to the walls of your intestines. Once it has a hold of the walls it will start feeding on the skin cells. This feeding will continue until you start treating the infection, and eventually the walls of your intestines becomes perforated.

Toxins and Candida

Once the walls of your intestines are perforated this is known as leaky gut syndrome. When this has happened toxins from the fungus and tiny food particles enter the bloodstream. Once in your bloodstream these toxins start having an effect on the rest of your body. You can suffer from symptoms that include…

  • Aching muscles and joints
  • Flu like symptoms
  • Lethargy
  • Concentration problems
  • Mood swings
  • Chronic vaginal yeast infections
  • And many more

Your intestines are now absorbing toxins regularly

Because your intestines are designed to absorb nutrition from your food they will now absorb the toxins from the Candida. The intestines also start absorbing less nutrients because the Fungus will upset your digestion so your food doesn’t fully broken down.

Prescription drugs for fungus

If you’re lucky enough to have your doctor realize that your have intestinal yeast then all he/she can prescribe you is oral anti fungal drugs. While these kill the fungus they don’t do anything to prevent the fungus from re-infecting you after the treatment stops. Only your body can do this with its natural defenses. These are your beneficial bacteria and your immune system.

When you take oral anti fungal drugs, and the infection keeps coming back the fungus just gets resistant to the drug, and then it becomes stronger.

Holistic, natural healing

A natural holistic treatment is the only way to eliminate yeast from the intestines. All you can do is strengthen your body’s natural defenses so the yeast can no longer mutate and cause you problems. To do this you need to…

  • Discover the cause of your intestinal yeast
  • Starve the yeast with an anti Candida diet
  • Re-balance your intestinal flora with friendly bacteria
  • Heal your intestines
  • Cleanse your blood

Doing all of the above will require the help from a yeast infection expert.

All these can only be done naturally, there is no drug on this planet that can do any of these jobs. This is why drugs like antibiotics are the biggest cause of candidiasis and vaginal yeast infections.

Monistat Coupns Advice

More women now search online for Monistat coupons. While they’re a good way of saving money, there’s a concern in why so many women would would want to save $3 on a tube on anti fungal cream. The only reason can be they’re using the cream a lot more often than they should be.

Resistant yeast

If you’re in a position where you’re using the cream to an extent that you need to start saving money with coupons then you’re going to end up with resistant yeast living in your vagina, and that’s only if you haven’t already.

To keep on using anti fungal cream to get relief from your vaginal burning and itching is not the way to treat your chronic yeast infections. You must find out why you’re getting the infections in the first place, and there’s always a reason why the Candida yeast is mutating in your body. Once you find the reason you’ll no longer need to keep using anti fungal creams to enjoy a comfortable day.

See your doctor for a check up

Seeing your doctor when you’re suffering from chronic yeast infections is very important. Your doctor can give your a health check to make sure that there is no obvious reason why you’re suffering from your infections.

Your doctor can also make sure you have self diagnosed your infection correctly. Many women self diagnose their infections and their diagnosis is incorrect. This means that they are continually using a yeast infection treatment on another infection. Anti fungal creams only treat yeast infections and will not cure any other vaginal infection.

They will give relief which makes women believe that they have a yeast infection, but as soon as the treatment stops their symptoms return. Treating another vaginal infection with anti fungal creams can also cause a yeast infection when you aren’t suffering from one.

Be careful

WHen using anti fungal creams such as Monistat you must be careful and use them as directed by a health professional. Just using them when you think you need to will just make your vaginal health very poor. Always use Monistat under the guidance of your doctor, and always complete the full course of treatment even if your symptoms disappear after a couple of days.
