How Does A Yeast Infection Get In Your Bowels And Intestines

A yeast infection in your bowel or any other part of your digestive tract can be caused by a number of reasons. Until you discover the reason for your infection you won’t be able to cure yourself which is why a lot of people suffer from chronic yeast infections. The intestines are involved in all yeast infections, and just treating the external symptoms such as an itchy vagina is not always enough.



What is yeast

The culprit for a high percentage of yeast infections is the Candida Albicans yeast. This yeast lives in all of us, and there’s nothing we can do about that. What happens is your natural defenses are compromised for some reason, and then the usually harmless yeast mutates into an aggressive fungus. It’s this fungus that starts causing problems with your health.

Antibiotics use

Antibiotics use is the biggest cause of yeast infections because of the damage it causes to your body’s natural defenses. There is a natural bacterial balance in your intestines that gets upset with antibiotics use. When antibiotics are taken to kill the bacteria causing another infection such as a urinary tract infection or strep throat the antibiotics also kill your friendly bacteria.

The friendly bacteria living in your intestines keep the yeast at low numbers so it doesn’t start to mutate and take over. Once antibiotics have killed your friendly bacteria then the yeast will take over due to our modern day diet. Yeast loves sugar, and if your diet is high in sugar and refined carbohydrate you’ll feed the yeast before your friendly bacteria can get back to full strength after the antibiotics have killed them off.

Poor diet

A diet that is low in nutrition and high in sugar and refined foods can cause yeast overgrowth in the bowel and intestines. Nutritious foods feed your body, and that keeps your immune system strong. Sugar also feeds yeast, and in general does your body no good at all.

Indigestion remedies

People who suffer from acid reflux ( GERD ) will continually take indigestion remedies to combat their problem. These remedies neutralize the acid in the stomach, but the acid kills yeasts in the stomach before they reach the intestines. When more yeast reaches the intestines than usual it makes it easier for them to start taking control.

Stomach acid is also needed for the proper digestion of food. If food isn’t digested properly it will ferment in the bowel, and fermented food is another type of food that yeasts and other parasites love. When your food isn’t being digested properly you will also become under-nourished so your immune system will become weaker.

Find the reason for your yeast infection of the bowel and intestines

Until you know what has started the process of mutating fungus in your body you won’t be able to successfully treat yourself. Once you have discovered the root cause of your infection you can then go about starting an anti Candida program that will eliminate the fungus from your intestines.

Eliminating fungus from your intestines can be very difficult, and any mistake you make could feed the fungus or could keep your body in a condition that the fungus thrives in.
