Dr Oz: Say Goodbye To Yeast Infections
Did you know that 75% of American women will have a Yeast Infection at some point in life? Dr Oz used a disgusting smell test to find an Assistant of the Day, Vicky.
She said that she has personal experience with Yeast Infections, due to a reaction to antibiotics. Dr Oz said that he was impressed that she identified the odor.
Dr Oz: What Causes a Yeast Infection?
Why do women get Yeast Infections, and what can be done about them? Doctor Oz said that some of the causes can be:
- Birth Control Pills
- Sugary Sodas (or Sugar)
- Wine & Beer
Vicky has lost 97.2 pounds in 14 months, and I guess that’s in part because she stopped drinking soda? This connection was not made clear, but that’s a great accomplishment regardless.
Dr Oz: Yeast Vs Bacteria
Vicki dragged her friend Kim onstage to help with Dr Oz’s demonstration. It was a tug of war to illustrate the back and forth between Yeast and Bacteria. Even a small change can throw off the balance here, and multiple factors can compound the risk.
Dr Oz: Beat Down the Yeast
How can you get things back in balance, or keep them that way? Dr Oz said that Yeast Infections are common, and he asked what Vicky tried.
She said she tried to treat the problem naturally by adding Yogurt to her diet, and applying it down below as well. “It seemed to help. Nevertheless, it is very uncomfortable,” she said.
Doctor Oz said that what you need is Bacteria to protect you in this scenario. You will need to beat down the Yeast and add the right amount of Bacteria.
Dr Oz: How To Prevent Yeast Infections
- Eat a low-sugar meal, especially at breakfast, to prevent sugar spikes that foster Yeast.
- Wear loose clothing, and cotton undergarments, because Yeast thrives in warm, dark, moist places.
Dr Oz: Probiotics Treat a Yeast Infection
What other options can you try to get Probiotics, delivering the bacteria and antifungal benefits you need?
- Miso Soup
Dr Oz: OTC Antifungal Cream Treatment
If the other options don’t work for you, pick up an over the counter Antifungal Cream and use it for about three days. The product name should end in “-azole.”
