Natural cure yeast infection

When we speak of a "yeast" infection, what we usually mean is infection with a specific fungus, Candida albicans. Virtually all of us have "colonies" of this usually harmless yeast fungus living peacefully in our intestinal tract (and vaginal tract in women). Candida behaves in an opportunistic fashion, by which we mean it lives peacefully, minding its own business, keeping quiet, knowing its place, if you will, until something provides an opportunity for it to rise up in revolt. That something might be a course of antibiotics that wipes out all the competing bacteria in the area, or a severe infection that occupies your immune system on other fronts, or diabetes, or diseases such as AIDS that cripple the immune system.

Natural cure yeast infectionWhatever the cause, given the opportunity, the yeast fungi begin to grow unrestricted and causes infection. In the mouth, overgrowth of yeast causes a disorder known as thrush, in which white patches form on the inner surface of the cheeks, lips, and throat.

In babies, the yeast makes its move when wet or dirty diapers remain too long against tender skin, causing a diaper rash. In women, courses of antibiotics may kill off the friendly bacteria in the vaginal tract, paving the way for yeast to grow, causing the typical itchy white discharge called a yeast infection.
