For chronic yeast infections, it's a great idea to keep dry and in addition wearing cotton that breathes whenever possible rather than synthetic that tend to add to the moisture.

Your yeast infection is generally an indication that your intestinal flora is not well balanced. You can create better intestinal balance of the flora by using probiotics. Probiotics are the good bacteria lining our intestines. You need more of the good to offset the yeast infection. Probiotic foods are yogurt and kefir. Probiotics can be purchased as supplements to provide billions of cells that will help to relieve the situation once the flora are in better balance. The 3 most important probiotic strains to create better balance, and the ones that have been scientifically tested most are:  Lactobacillus Acidophilus (gasseri), Bifidobacterium Bifidum and Bifidobacterium Longum.  

There is generally no need to take probiotic supplements that have more than these 3 strains. These are the ones that do the job best and studies show they are most efficient at creating balanced health. For more info check out my website.

Many "yeast" infections are diagnosed over the phone in the doctor's office.

Women, and believe it or not, many doctors, think every vulvar or vaginal itch is a yeast infection. Not true.

I found this out when I did several studies for a pharmaceutical company to try a new drug for yeast infections. At the time I had a busy OB/Gyn practice. The study had to find 30 patients with yeast in a year. The caveat was they could not have been on antibiotics for a week, and did not have diabetes or any immune deficiency disorder. And they had to be proved yeast by slide and culture.

Although busy, i figured it would take me a maximum of 3 weeks to complete this study - everyone had yeast.

3 weeks from the end of the study, I only had 27 patients with documented yeast!

And in over 30 yrs of practice, I only saw ONE patient with DOCUMENTED chronic yeast infections - ONE. (Diabetes, antibiotics and HIV excepted).

So what causes these "infections". Well, most of the time it is something you are doing. Using too much toilet paper (which dries out the tissues by pulling necessary moisture out), douches, feminine hygiene products, soaps, nylon or silk panties, washing too frequently, etc.

And if you do have yeast, Monistat works the best. Get the 7 day supply, it is cheaper.

There's a lovely product called Yin Care.  It is a blend of herbs that you can apply topically.  I would recommend having your adrenals nourished with acupuncture and siberian ginseng as adrenal fatiuge can be an underlying condition to the liver giving out and generating this symptom.  You are not dirty or toxic. You are tired. Your organs need support.  Make sure you get to bed early and take a good acidophillus supplement.

The Monistat products work well for treating yeast infection. All work and they are readily available. If it is a recurrent infection then I'd talk with your nurse practitioner.

Azo Yeast is a great, affordable everyday probiotic and boric acid (one bottle will last you years) in size 0 veggie capsules (you buy these separately) inserted into the vagina three times a day until the infection is gone is a super cheap and effective treatment. You'll need to wear a panty liner though. Monostat always burned me and is expensive. You can get all this at a Fred Meyer. Super convenient.

Sour Crout everyday till it is gone. Then make sure to pee every time after sex and drink a glass of water so that you go pee again a few hours later.

I got a yeast infection while I was on a antibiotic and my doctor told me to eat yogurt at least three times a day until it was gone, preferably greek yogurt. There's something in there that gets rid of the yeast. Try that along with monistat and it should be gone in no time.

I've had chronic yeast infections for years until I started taking probiotics orally and vaginally.  I use Florastor recommended by my gastroenterologist (cheapest price is Costco) and Luvena prebiotic (online at Walgreens). 

I'm also on corticosteriods and immune suppressants due to a chronic illness which exacerbates yeast infections but those still worked.  That's my testimony.

If you are post-menopausal, you could have stubborn form of yeast which won't respond to over the counter products and would, in that event, need a prescription for your doctor.

FYI: Certain laundry detergents, chloride and wheat products can cause yeast infections.  As a former chronic yeast infection sufferer, I'm a big fan of Kefir.  It is found in most grocery stores near the milk products.

Real love spell that work fast to get ex back and Stop a Divorce or Break-Up
After 12 Years of married, My Husband Changed His Mind!! We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again. Dr.Unity is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
