Stopping the Start of a Yeast Infection. (MA)

Problem: Hi Tia! I’m starting to get that feeling like a yeast infection is coming on. Is there something natural to stop it?

Tip from Tia: Yeast infections can happen to anyone, female or male. And, they can happen anywhere in or outside the body. (If you have a full infection, be sure to contact your doctor to determine if it’s yeast or bacteria and discuss treatments)

The best thing I can tell you first and most important, is watch your sugar intake. Yeast feeds on sugar and multiplies very quickly. Be sure to drink plenty of water, eat lots of dark green veggies, like broccoli and make sure you dry the areas completely before putting on clothes.

Remember, yeast and bacterial infections can be passed back and fourth, repeatedly through intercourse. It’s best to wait for the symptoms to clear before engaging in sex.

Now, for balancing out your body naturally, choose one of the following options. Doing too many things at the same time, can sway your chemistry the other way.

For yeast, olive leaf extract is great. It is an herbal, and you can take orally, 1-2 a day for about 5 days, and it will push out any kind of infection brewing.

If you are unsure of yeast or bacteria, it’s safest to take what balances both. Apple cider vinegar is a good way to balance naturally. Take a teaspoon orally, daily. Using it everyday can keep you balanced and has many other healthy benefits.

And, another remedy if you are unsure and it is affecting your lower areas is, make a very shallow bath, climb in, while sitting add peroxide in front of you. Sit in tub for 5-10 minutes. (Douches and washes can cause more unbalance, so I don’t recommend them at all.)

I believe natural balance starts from the inside with diet. Some environments can cause infections. If you’ve had reoccurring infections be sure to talk to your doctor.

Balance can be hard to control. With infections, you should always contact your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Sanitize Undergarments After an Infection. Quickie:

Quickie: Sanitize Undergarments After an Infection.

Yeast infections and Bacterial infections can effect a lot of women during hormonal changes, adding in new medications, allergic reactions, etc. These infections can affect men as well. Passing them back and forth can be a nightmare. Disposing of underwear can help but can also be expensive.

Here’s a tip to sanitize your underwear to kill the yeast and bacteria and eliminating reinfection from that source.

Wash underwear together, separate from other clothing. Add in vinegar or grapefruit extract to the washer to kill off the majority. Then before you put the undergarments into the dryer, (Important: Make sure there is no metal or sparkles on the underwear) place damp underwear on a paper towel, and put in the microwave for 2 minutes on high. (caution: underwear will be very hot when removing from microwave.)

This will kill the remainder of the bacteria and yeast. Immediately, place in dryer to dry the underwear.

The microwave is fine because, all the bad stuff died in the intense heat, but some people feel the need to clean the microwave after this purpose. Sanitize microwave by using a bowl of water in the microwave for 3 minutes on high to allow steam to kill anything left over. Wipe down with a clean cloth or paper towel. Repeat this process until infection completely clears up.
