Do you have a problem with yeast infections? Perhaps this is your first one and if that is the case, you're in a perfect position to be able to cure the problem once and for all. For those of us that have been dealing with yeast infections for quite some time, we realize that once they become chronic, they can be quite difficult to handle. Although there are several different natural cures that can be used in order to get rid of yeast infections, one of the best ones for you to use is yogurt. Here is a little bit about the type of yogurt that you should use to get rid of yeast infections and how you should use it.
First of, you should avoid the store-bought yogurt that typically lines the shelves of almost every grocery store. Although it does contain some yogurt cultures to a certain extent, it also contains something that is going to feed the yeast that is thriving within your body. The sugar that is added to store-bought yogurt is going to counteract any good effects that eating the yogurt is going to have for you. That is why you should avoid this type of product at all cost.
I find that there are several different types of natural yogurt that are available at many health food stores. These are an excellent choice, especially if they are cultured from soy milk or some other type of product as their base. It is also possible for you to make your own yogurt and this is an excellent choice as well. The real key is that you want the natural cultures to be able to replace some of them bacteria that may be missing from your body and encourage it to re-grow again. This will allow the balance to return that is now missing inside of you.
One of the best ways for you to use yogurt in order to cure a yeast infection is to eat it every day. It will encourage intestinal flora that will help to bring your body into a natural balance and to improve your overall health. It is also possible for you to use it topically, either putting it on a tampon and inserting it or spreading it on the area where the yeast infection is occurring. One word of warning, however, you want to make sure that you don't leave the yogurt on too long or it may become an irritant as well.
