Many people today suffer from yeast infections or candida. This has been cause by the overuse of antibiotics, sugar, contraceptives and steroids. It has been estimated the 60 million people a year suffer from candida or yeast infections. The most common cause of candida is the use of oral antibiotics which also kill the good bacteria of the colon. Taking these medications should be watched and consulted with your doctor.
Yeast infections may also be caused by dietary indiscretions and stress. If you eat sugar in excess it will feed the yeast and upset the normal balance in your system. Yeast overgrowth can also be caused by poisons like mercury, mold and mold spores. When women have an overgrowth of yeast in their colon it can spread to their genital tract and produce vaginities. You can then try a virginal cream to help stop the infection. It is best that you see your doctor for treatment. If you wait to long it can spread to other parts of the body. It can also show up in the mouth. Candida can cause problems throughout the body and suppress the immune system.
