If someone gets frequent yeast infections is there anything you can do to try to prevent them other than having good personal hygiene? Is there an OTC med you can take to prevent them or something?
Someone who gets yeast infections often may have a high amount of yeast in their body...yeast overgrowth. They should first do a colon cleanse. There is a reason for that but I don't have enough space. Then they should go to their local health food store and get a candida yeast cleanse. There is a strict diet to follow because there are foods that feed yeast like sugar and some others. The cleanses will have diet suggestions in the instructions. Simply wearing cotton panties or not wearing tight pants means nothing really. There is also a probiotic called Acidophillis and some others you may want to intoduce into your body they are our bodies natural healthy bacteria that help keep yeast under control. Also whats good is galic it is a natural anti yeast food!!! I put a clove or two in my salads for lunch. There are naturo Path Doctors out here and they have books you can go to the library and get or you can go to book store and buy them so you will always have them for future references!!!
