Yeast Infection Cures Explained
In Chapter 2 of Yeast Infection No More, Linda Allen provides a clear and simple explanation of how to deal with all the factors that help yeast cells to flourish.
For example, if you’re not eating food that contains the 40 essential vitamins and minerals necessary for good health, you’re creating an environment in your body in which Candida can grow.
And what she has to say about friendly probiotic bacteria is particularly interesting. I never knew that both antibiotics and stress gradually destroy the probiotic bacteria in the gut.
These bacteria are absolutely essential for combating viruses, parasites, bacteria and of course yeasts such as Candida.
In fact, Candida is kept under control by probiotic bacteria. That explains why antibiotics given on prescription will often result in a yeast infection.
The role of stress is less obvious, but here’s how it works.
When you’re stressed your body produces a hormone called cortisol, which reduces your body’s ability to sustain probiotic bacteria, and in turn reduces your body’s ability to defend against Candida overgrowth.
Again, you can see how there is real science behind the concept of yeast infection home remedies.
What I really like about Yeast Infection No More is that it explains so many things that may be puzzling you.
For example, in Chapter 2, Linda Allen also reviews the symptoms of a localized vaginal yeast infection. She compares this with the more severe systemic vaginal infection which involves swelling of the vagina and discoloration of the vulva.
Other symptoms that arise from yeast infections are bleeding and swelling of haemorrhoids, and general fatigue and lethargy.

Bad enough? Yes, and these are not the only symptoms of yeast infection, there are a whole host of others as well!
For such problems the simplest home remedies for a Candida infection are probiotic bacteria cultures. However, these do need to be supplemented with other aspects of diet, nutrition, and lifestyle.
And if you’re wondering how to use Probiotic bacteria as an effective home remedy, here’s the answer. You pour a culture of them over your genitals! The easiest place to get such a culture is live yogurt.… I leave the rest to your imagination!
I think information like this makes Yeast Infection No More such a useful and practical manual for women and men alike.
After all, it’s very reassuring to suddenly find an explanation of things that have been a complete mystery to you – especially if your doctor was unable to help you.
It’s inevitable that modern medicine will always look to its magic pills such as antifungal agents like Fluconazole or antibiotics. But “less is more”, so they say, and this might be true here.
But drugs may not be the right treatment. Taking antibiotics, even with the best intentions, can result in elimination of the good bacteria in your body. This can allow Candida to flourish. And that can result in all sorts of gut disorders, food sensitivities, severe allergies and even asthma.
I think a holistic approach to medicine is required. So I’m pleased Linda Allen has taken the time and trouble to review both minor and major infections in detail. For example, she explains how severe health problems such as autoimmune disorders can be eliminated when they are the product of yeast infections.
Fortunately, for most people, a yeast infection is probably going to cause anything from a mild irritation to a rash, or in the worst cases perhaps some annoying – even intense – itching.
As I always say: knowledge is power, and reviewing Yeast Infection No More has certainly shown me how true that is when it comes to Candida problems
By the way, Candida infections show up in many ways. Indeed, the list of symptoms is very long. So, if you’re faced with health problems you don’t understand, it’s worth getting this eBook just to see if it might be a yeast infection causing them.
And if you know for sure that you have yeast infection, then you can see which of your symptoms is a product of the infection.
Holistic Medicine or Conventional Medicine?
Linda Allen is particularly good in her review of the benefits of holistic medicine, and the limitations of conventional medicine in treating Candida.
Essentially, it comes down to this: a single narrow approach to treating Candida such as antifungal agents is always going to have side effects because it doesn’t take into account the whole picture.
Although antifungal agents can actually work quite effectively in the short term, their impact going to be limited in the longer term unless the environment in which Candida can flourish is neutralized.
Furthermore, like all bacteria and viruses, Candida albicans can mutate and develop resistance to antifungal agents. Indeed, fungal resistance to conventional drugs is becoming a major problem.
And if you’ve had a prescription from your doctor, you may already know that antifungal medication can have some unpleasant side effects.
Just because some of these products have been deregulated and are now available over-the-counter, they’re not necessarily safe or free of side effects.
Regrettably, that may not be the case. So while you may be willing to trade off the side-effects of an anti-fungal medication for a short-term reduction in symptoms, the holistic approach is ultimately the one that’s going to benefit your body and keep Candida at bay long-term.
You may have been prescribed Gynazole, Butoconazole, Diflucan, Ketoconazole, or some other medication for treating yeast infection. And if the infection has returned, you may be wondering what to do next.
A logical next step is to try some more natural yeast infection home remedies as described in Yeast Infection No More.
This may mean you never again have to experience the parasitism of Candida.
When all’s said and done, you’ve nothing to lose by trying the holistic approach, and you may actually have a great deal to gain.

Chapter 3 deals with the diagnosis of Candida.
Linda describes the groups at highest risk of Candida infection, and she goes on to explain how to get the most comprehensive tests available to diagnose infection with Candida.
She also explains how to use the home remedies for yeast infection that she describes.
She includes addresses of the companies who sell tests which will clearly show you whether you have Candida or not.
And she also provides a very interesting questionnaire which shows you pretty clearly whether or not what kind of infection you have.
She also offers a great deal of advice on vaginal yeast infections, and how to approach a doctor to discuss this potentially embarrassing subject.
There’s also information about a quick home test you can do which will indicate whether or not you have an advanced yeast infection or a milder version.
