Posted on May 5th, 2014 by | 4 views

How many women do you know who have had at least one, if not more yeast infections? (Yeast Infection: An infection known as vaginitis or genital candidiasis that becomes problematic when the growth of yeast is excessive and not controlled by the body’s normal bacterial flora.  This occurs when the vagina has certain underlying conditions that give birth to an overgrowth of candida albicans) 

Familiar,annoying symptoms like vaginal itching, white clumpy discharge, soreness and redness in the vaginal area, and painful intercourse. It goes without saying that it prevents us from enjoying our day-to-day lives, not to mention our romantic lives as well! This infection, otherwise known as vaginitis or genital candidiasis, is a problem when the growth of yeast becomes excessive and is not controlled by the body’s normal bacterial flora. Although it may cause great discomfort, there are natural solutions to treat this condition! In traditional Chinese medicine, yeast infections are most often corresponding to a pattern called “Damp Heat”. Acupuncture and herbal medicine aimed at resolving the dampness and clearing the heat, along with supplements and dietary changes such as eliminating foods that can cause dampness like dairy products, greasy fried foods, refined foods, and sugar all help to address the underlying pattern and symptoms. Although your yeast infection may sound like another woman’s it is important to be seen in order to understand exactly why you are suffering and to find the right course of treatment for yourself.

Common Yest Infections symptoms include:  itching in the vaginal area, soreness and redness in the vaginal area, white clumpy discharge that can range from slight watery, white discharge to white, chunky discharge that looks like cottage cheese.  Painful intercourse is also common.
