  1. 1. Yeast Infection Effective Ways To Reduce Yeast InfectionsMost women suffer yeast infections, few understand why. The immune system plays a pivotal role inpreventing yeast infections or candida. Reducing, preventing and eliminating yeast infection, naturally…The incidence of yeast infections seems to be growing, yet it is often looked upon as a common ailment thatis endemic to women. Many men suffer yeast infections and it is just as painful and inconveniently locatedas for women.Typically a topical cream or antibiotic (either oral or inserted vaginally) is the approach taken when a yeastinfection needs to be addressed, but there may be common sense ways to prevent infection as well assuggestions on treatment options.What is a Yeast Infection?When your body produces too much yeast it often results in an infection. Since yeast is common in or on theskin, penis, mouth and vagina these are areas where a yeast infection can occur (although there aregenerally more incidence in women than men).How Yeast GrowsThe vagina helps prevent the growth of yeast through a caustic (for the yeast) acidic environment. Thisenvironment can be altered negatively by menstruation, as well as the use of birth control pills, diabetes andcertain antibiotics. These agents work to lower the acid normally found in the vagina. When this happens,yeast, which is common in the vagina in small amounts, can find an atmosphere for rapid growth.The use of synthetic materials in underwear or lingerie can also contribute to yeast infections by trappingmoisture which also creates an atmosphere conducive to excess yeast production.Why Yeast Infection OccursPh balance in the body is the key. Yeast is prevalent in the body at all times. Yeast infection will occur whenthe acid ph of the body is lowered. The immune system regulates the acid balance in the body. Your diet isthe leading factor to help the immune system keep a healthy balance. The body has a healthy ph of 6.4(when measuring urine or saliva), the further away, greater or lower, from this natural reading you have, willcause greater disease and illness such as yeast infection.Stress is one of the largest causes of unbalanced ph readings in the body. Blood ph is higher than body ph.Injury, overweight, antibiotics and birth control pills all alter the natural ph of the body. Fatigue is oftenoverlooked as a stress factor. Your ph reading does vary slightly through the day but should average 6.4 forthe day.What Not To DoSome may be following advice that is actually harmful, so it is important to know what has been offered inthe past as an effective alternative that will not help cure a yeast infection, and may actually accelerateyeast growth or do long term damage to the vagina.You should never use baking soda in attempting to cure a yeast infection. Baking soda has a high phcausing the yeast to proliferate.You shDownload your FREE copy of eBook
