A vinegar douche for yeast infections is fast and effective. But,why you have developed a yeast infection in the first place? If you understand what has caused he infection you can treat the root cause and not just the symptoms.Then you will hopefully not suffer from recurring infections ever again.
Candida albicans is an organism that is naturally present in the, vagina on the skin and in the lower intestinal tract. This organism, given the opportunity will mutate into the fungal yeast infection which is also called thrush. If you have a strong immune system, the candida albicans will be prevented from overgrowing due to the presence of the favorable bacteria, called Bifidobacterium Bifidus and Lactobacillus acidophilus. These keep the candida under control.
If you have a weakened immune system you may have less of this kind of bacteria. If you have been given a course of antibiotics or steroids these bacteria will be killed along with the bacteria causing your infection which therefore allows the overgrowth of the candida albicans to take place.
In certain conditions the Candida Albicans will grow developing into Candidiasis which is more commonly known as Thrush or a yeast infection. If allowed to grow out of control the micro-organism which has mutated into a fungi may infiltrate the mucosal lining of gastrointestinal tract and get into the bloodstream. This means the toxic fungi in the blood stream is able to move quickly around the body. This form of the condition can lead to chronic infection which can damage major organs of the body.
