There are many different types of women's yeast infections other than just vaginal yeast. Women can get these infections on the skin, nails, in the breasts while nursing and in the intestine as well. Matter of fact, most vaginal yeast infections actually begin in the intestine and are then transferred to the vagina because of the close proximity of the anus to the vagina.
These yeast infections are sometimes very easy to get rid of and kept under control but many times they are very hard to get rid of. Many women have been having problems with women's yeast infections for years and have not been able to get rid of it. Yeast is a very tough organism and under the right, or should I say wrong, conditions it can double its population in an hour.
Women who take Diflucan for their vaginal yeast infection, quite often have
this problem. The Diflucan gets rid of the infection but in two weeks or
so the infection comes back. At this point, these women's yeast
infections can become a literal nightmare and the only way to get rid of them is to treat the cause of the infection at the same time.
When women's yeast infections become chronic, you have to figure out what the underlying cause of these women's yeast infections are. It could be hormones or bad diet, maybe your partner is giving them to you, or you are also infected in your intestine and are giving it to yourself. Whatever it is, you have to correct these problems or combination of problems, to be successful in getting rid of chronic infections.
There's no magic potion for getting rid of women's yeast infections that have become firmly entrenched in your body, I wish there was, but unfortunately there isn't. However, with a little effort on your part, you can get rid of your yeast infection.
What are the primary causes of vaginal yeast infections?
At some point in your life, you will most likely suffer from a vaginal yeast infection. Presented here is an overall review of vaginal yeast infections and many of their causes that you might need to address or have checked out.
What causes constant yeast infections?
Detailed explanation of all the possible causes and how you can determine if any of these problems apply to you so they can be corrected.
Vaginal yeast infection remedies that kill these infections.
Most of these vaginal yeast infection remedies are suppositories or creams and are used to kill the infection directly, while treating the different types of women's yeast infections I talk about below. If you occasionally get vaginal yeast then these remedies will more than likely work for you and you won't have to treat yourself further.
How to treat recurring women's yeast infections.
Many times these women's yeast infections start out as an infection that occurred every few months and are now happening every single month. Typically the yeast becomes active at a certain time in your cycle for a week to ten days then goes away, then the next month it comes back again. At this point, the yeast is firmly entrenched in your body so you must find out what caused it so you can get rid of it.
How to treat vaginal infections that never go away.
Many women's vaginal yeast infections progress to the point they never go away or recur, they are always infected with yeast. Directions on how to treat this infection when it has progressed to this point are found on this page.
Treating vaginal yeast infections that occur while pregnant.
Pregnancy yeast infections can be hard to resolve because your immune system function does decline while pregnant so it doesn't attack the fetus. You also are limited to what you can take because of the baby. This page gives you a proven plan to control these infections.
How to treat breast yeast infections.
Many women get these infections while nursing on the outside or inside of the breast. This can be one of the hardest of all women's yeast infections to get under control while being safe for your baby. On this webpage I explain a method that has worked for many women.
A natural cure for vaginal yeast infections.
This treatment plan works for deep rooted infections both recurring and not, while also cleansing any yeast in the intestines.
How to treat bladder and urinary tract infections.
I have added this webpage because this is one of the main reasons why women are prescribed antibiotics that lead to women's yeast infections. There are safe alternatives to those antibiotics and they might be worth a try before you take them.

Estrogen and Yeast
Very informative articles. Thanks. Details- after breastfeeding ended and the hormone issues started again, I started getting yeast infections monthly. …
I apologize, as this may be a long comment. Last year I discovered that I was suffering from pcos-polycystic ovarian syndrome. My immune system and my hormones are out of wack. And as a result, I suffered from constant yeast infections. I lived on Monistat and panicked if I left home without it. I radically changed my diet and tried natural means to overcome my infestation of candida. Doctors weren't very helpful, they gave me medicine that worked for a matter of days. And they seemed uninterested that my infections were recurring and taking a toll on my body and mind.
Tired of suffering, I decided to do some research of my own and found your website. I decided that it was worth a try as the science behind it made sense and explained why I was suffering so much.
Dan, you have saved my body and my sanity. I can work out. I can go out dancing again. I can live without the fear of infection! I thank you, thank you, thank you a million times!! I finally have energy and clarity. It has diminished many of my pcos symptoms. I amazed by your products.
I used your Biofase product 2 years ago. It was a game changer. I was suffering from the most awful candida yeast infections. Biofase and the Profase blasted them into oblivion. I felt like I brought in the most powerful guns to kill those nasty yeasts. I would like to try your product again since I am in and out of swimming pools so much and the yeast infection is an issue.
PS. Please do not use my name, just initials if you are going to post this on your site. Thank you!
I was hoping to post a testimonial on your site because I feel strongly about what I have learned from you, and I want to share that it is working.
I specifically want other women to know what I am doing to combat yeast infections, BV and UTIs, which all happen to me regularly.
I have been taking your 11 strain probiotic and your CP-1 once a day for over a month now. Along with those, I have been taking 15000 units of Vitamin D each day, as well as 2 higher dose cranberry pills each day. The vitamin D, coupled with your probiotics, prevent the BV from showing up. The cranberry pills keep the UTI at bay, and the probiotics plus 2 other factors keep the yeast infections from happening.
By now I would have had one or 2 infections already, this is how regularly I was getting them, once or twice a MONTH.
The other 2 things I do I also got from your site.
I got a huge thing of coconut oil and an ice tray. I heated the oil just long enough that is was in a liquid form, then I filled the ice tray with the oil. I put it in the freezer. Every time I have sex, that night I put one in, like a suppository. It is preventative and it works!! It also provides a really nice smell and acts as a natural lubricant. Basically anytime I feel even slightly off, either because of sex or because of my period or anything, I put one in. This coconut oil trick is amazing! Just a warning though ladies, it does leak, you will need a pad for the night.
I also changed my diet. I took out most carbs and most sugars and increased proteins, veggies and the right kinds of fruits. Blueberries are a natural anti-fungal. I also added in cottage cheese (the kind that has higher probiotics in it) as well as greek yogurt because it is way less sugar and higher in protein and probiotics.
Oh, and lastly, but just an important-- I stopped taking antibiotics. They are always prescribed for me for UTIs and for BV and I refuse to take them now. Unless I am REALLY sick and nothing else will work, I won't take them and risk killing all my good bacteria. I think this is REALLY important for us all to understand what is actually happening when we take antibiotics.
Anyways, I just wanted to say your site is full of amazingly helpful
information, which I am so grateful for. I will be buying my probiotics from you from now on because they actually work!!
Thanks for posting this for other women to benefit from!
I just placed an order for probiotics and wanted to share my results with Biofase. After seeing your suggestion of using the CP-1 as a vaginal suppository, I tried it, and then by adding just the powder to a 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil, and popping it in the freezer (to avoid using the capsule). The coconut oil with or without the Cp-1 felt similarly effective, but the addition of Profase and Biofase was very fast-acting.
I may have used too much to start with, as the next morning the area felt like a war zone--very itchy and hard to get comfortable, but it was doing the job--killing yeast--faster and more effectively than anything I'd tried, and I noticed the definite elimination of it. To anyone else inclined to try it, I suggest starting in small amounts (too much for me was only a fraction of a capsule) or maybe on the weekend.
How are you doing? My second doctor's lab report came back showing that yeast infection is gone!!! I am really really thankful, especially for you!
You have been
very patient with me all this while, despite me asking you all the weird
questions that popped up on my mind. I just don't know how to thank you
enough. Thank you for all of your advice!!
I will continue taking profase and biofase for maintenance.
Thanks so much for all of your help!! God bless you!
I just wanted to thank-you so much for this series of newsletters. You have hugely impacted my health, and my life.
One year ago I almost died from a systemic yeast infection. I had thousands of dollars in tests done by conventional medical experts. Eventually I was diagnosed as mentally ill, because they couldn't find the problem.
I turned to natural and functional medicine experts and almost immediately they found a severe systemic yeast infection. I started an anti fungal, probiotics, and supplements. About the same time I found your sight and it has been a wealth of knowledge and support to me through my healing journey. I specially found useful the diet information. Thank-you for doing what you do, truly making a difference in the lives of people. I am now healthy and feel better than I ever had. I still stick to the diet and take the anti fungals as precaution.
I have found your website EXTREMELY helpful and I look forward to learning more. Thank you for sharing your expertise so freely and openly. Blessings ~
Thank you so much for your website and the newsletter. It has been so helpful and informative, it is truly a great resource when trying to wade through the whole Candida mess.
Thank you so much for your newsletters, and website and all its amazing info. I was nearly in pieces with systemic candida last October, using your info I am now back in the land of the living and coping, not cured, but managing to the point where I'm back to my normal activities after being a housebound wreck for weeks. I can't thank you enough and I love receiving your words of down to earth and practical wisdom.
Thank you again,
I just think you are an awesome person. I want to thank you for all the very helpful information you provide. I just wish I had found you sooner. I spent countless hours trying to find information that made sense to me, until I found this website. There is information out there but I liked your step by step instructions and tested products, plus you have been through this yourself.
My first clues to my health issues were insomnia and brain fog. I did the spit test and then realized I had a Candida problem. I cleared up that problem with all your suggestions only to realize there was something else that just wasn't right. I went through the newsletters again and that is when I realized it had to be mercury.
I had no ideal that it could cause such a problem and how the heck did I have such a toxic load? I fear if I had not found your valuable information that my health would have taken a real nose dive.
I have been treating myself for mercury for about a month now and seeing improvements but still not where I need to be. I plan to continue this protocol for the rest of my life. I always look forward to reading your next newsletter. My hope is that more people will be as lucky as I was to find your information.
