Yeast Infections In General And For Baby's (Thrush) And Mothers
By Pieternel Van Giersbergen
The traditional cure for yeast/ candida with Nystatin is often not successful. Antibiotics makes thrush and yeast infections worse. Still we want to cure our yeast infections and thrush with a remedy, which has no side effect and is successful in battling yeast/ candida infections (thrush).
Thrush is showing up in baby mouths as small white spots and are difficult to remove. Thrush often goes hand in hand with a diaper rash.
Having a baby and having a yeast/ candida infection either when you breast feed or when the baby has thrush (yeast infection in the mouth) or in your digestive system or/ and the female parts yeast/ candia infections are in the rise. There is a simple home test you can do. The candida, yeast spit test. See yeast infection on my website for more information.
Avoid sugar and white flour products. These ingredients are nutrition for yeast and will feed the yeast/candida.
Add acidophilus and or kefir to reestablish a good intestinal flora.
Avoid stress, stress diminishes your immune system and infections have more changes to manifest in your body.
For babies add some Oil of Oregano on the baby's feet. When you have sore nipples massage the Oil of Oregano on the nipples and take it internally 3-6 drops every 3-6 hours depending on the severity of your infection and do not forget to take acidophilus and or kefir. Oil of Oregano is very strong and needs to be supplement with friendly bacteria which grow in your intestines.
For the diaper rash...try to leave the diaper off as possible for a little while and you of course massage the bottom with Oil of Oregano.
A nice side effect of Oil of Oregano is that it makes your breath smell like Oregano but people will associate it with eating Pizza.
