Yeast infection can cause discomfort, itching, immediate daily pain, uncomfortable and even painful sex, and ultimately predisposes you to vaginal infections. According to experts, if you want to get rid of yeast infection for good, opt for an antifungal program. Follow these steps and you will never get yeast infection again.
Cut down on refined carbohydrates – Bread and most carbohydrates contain yeast. If you really must eat bread or don’t have the will power to avoid it, toast it. Toasting the bread kills the yeast. Eliminating sugary and sweet things can also help. Sugar feeds Candida. Eliminating sugar from your diet will starve the fungus and eventually kill it. Foods to avoid are cakes, cookies, and even fruits like grapes, bananas, and apples.
Take nutritional supplements and extracts – Grapefruit seed extract, cranberry juice or tablets, and garlic extracts are enemies of yeast. Garlic can be ingested in the form of tablets, capsules, and powder, but a whole garlic clove can also be put into the vagina to kill the infection. Do this every few hours until the itch subsides.
Look what you wear – Candida thrives in a humid and humid environment that is also a breeding ground for bacteria. Wearing loose cotton underwear is better than wearing tight boxer shorts made of synthetic materials. Cotton lets your skin breathe. Avoid wearing thongs as they can irritate and cause friction in the affected area. In addition, it is advisable to use sanitary napkins made with organic material than to use tampons.
Drink more water – Drinking 8 or more glasses of water makes you urinate more often. The process of urinating helps you eliminate excess sugar in the body. As you may already know, yeast feeds on sugar. Drinking water not only removes excess sugar, but also removes other toxins from the body.
