Yeast infection also known as Candida Albicans
is an illness many people have without being
aware of it. Because of my profession I’m
talking and seeing many people with health
problems almost every day. Often those health
problems are direct or indirectly related to
Candida or yeast infection and that is what
inspired me to write this article for you. This
article will show you the symptoms and causes of
a yeast infection and provide you with some
natural treatments to combat a yeast infections. I
will also show you how to do a very simple home
test to find out if you have a yeast infection
or not. There are many factors involved
regarding Candida and the treatment of a yeast
infection and therefore I'm giving you a bit of the bigger picture
before I move on to precise treatments for
candida to get your
health back long term. It is not that hard to get
rid of a yeast infection. It just takes some
time and consistency in following the
a Yeast Infection?
Albicans is a yeast that grows like little
patches on the mucus membranes when our immune
system is down. In the mouth it is called
thrush. It also likes to grow in the vagina.
When we are healthy our immune system
protects us from yeast overgrowth.
Yeast infection is a sign that our body is out of balance!
This means our intestines do not function adequate
and lack the ability in greater or lesser degree to absorb nutrients and eliminate inadequate. There are many
symptoms (see yeast infection symptoms) but basically you do not have the right amount of energy to live your life fully. It holds you back and diminishes
your energy . Some factors can predict your chances of having candida like:
The use of antibiotics,
use of certain medications, graving of sugar and/ of use of alcohol. Also, if your partner has a yeast infection you will
probably have it too, in a lesser degree.

There is a large group of symptoms
related to having Candida. If you have one to three of these symptoms
you may have a yeast infection.
Take the home test as it is described at the bottom
of this page.
General symptoms are:
You are tired and low in energy, you have foggy thinking, fear, depression, anxiety,
light headiness, arthritis, joint and bone pains.
Cramping, bloating, gas, constipation and/
or diarrhea, indigestion. You might
be prone to food allergies.
Seasonal allergies, colds, asthma, post nasal drips and coughs.
Eczema, itching, rashes, fungal infections and
Yeast infections, itching, discharge, and redness, possible endometriosis.

The following factors play a role in the development of a
Antibiotics kill friendly intestinal bacteria which leads to yeast overgrowth
and which results in “leaky gut syndrome,” . This is a condition which disturbs the absorption of food particles
through the wall of the intestines, direction liver. The result is disturbed absorption and food sensitivities/ food allergies.
The consequence is that the protein that passes through the intestinal wall to the liver
is not completely broken down. This is
a cause in the development of food allergies. Research
also has shown a relationship between breast cancer and
overuse of antibiotics.
Estrogen dominance At age of 35 for women progesterone decreases, and at
age 45 for men testosterone decreases. Estrogen for both sexes increases. Also called the aging process
or mid- life crisis or pre/menopause. After pregnancy and end of cycle for women when estrogen levels tends
to go up. Estrogen dominance increases the glucose in mucus, allowing the yeast to multiply. How to
naturally balance your hormones?
See Prosperine for women, or Prosperon for men.
The other concern is your intestinal flora.
Parasites grow in your
intestines and some kind of parasite even recycles estrogen. Especially when we are obese and consume foods with high
levels of artificial estrogen (meat and milk and plastic wrapped foods, petroleum products
and artificial products like creams
and shampoos). Poor hygiene and reinfection
through your partner can play a factor as well.
treatments to heal
and prevent a yeast infection.
Oil of Oregano is a natural product
that has been proven very effective in treating yeast
infection. It needs to be taken with probiotics (kefir)
and a healthy diet.It is very effective both on the
short and the long term. Oil of Oregano is both anti
fungal, anti yeast and is also very good in boosting
your immune system. Besides being anti fungal, it also has anti bacterial
and anti viral properties, so whatever misbalance you have
in your body the Oil of Oregano will be beneficial for it.
Because of this, it gives the body the change to absorb the nutrients
we give to our body. Your next responsibility in

Olive leaf extract
Olive leaf extract also has shown
to be very effective in treating yeast infection and is
a natural remedy. Yeast infections take a long time to
heal and are often chronic. Olive leaf extract can work
vey well in this process to restore the good bacteria in
your body and has no side effect of resistance when
taken over a longer period of time. Besides healing the
body from yeast it improves the liver. Olive leaf is a
very power detoxifier and the liver is the “detox”
factory of our body. This is crucial in maintaining your
health. Olive leaf extract regenerates the liver, has
anti viral compounds and improves the immune system. It

Testing if you have a yeast infection
There is a simple self test
to help you determine if you have a yeast infection. First thing in the morning, before you put ANYTHING in your mouth, get
a clear glass of water. Better still; leave it by your bed the night before. Work up a bit of saliva, and then spit it into
the glass of water. Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to one hour. If you have a candida yeast infection, you
will see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva
will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water. If nothing develops in 30 minutes,
you’re probably Candida/ yeast free.
Eat two cups of kefir (original version). If you get abdominal cramps and rumbling you most likely have Candida.
I have made a little video for you to show test
more in detail. Please forgive the quality of the
video. This is my first one!
