Yeast is a fungus that is present in the moist areas of your body such as mouth, colon and vagina. A healthy immune system is very important to keep the growth of yeast under control. If you are suffering from an illness such as hepatitis, HIV or cancer or taking antibiotics, yeast can multiply rapidly and cause an infection.
There are different types of yeast that affect different parts of your body. For example, vaginitis is inflammation of the vagina that is caused by Candida albicans. Vaginitis is characterized by itching, discharge and pain. Thrush is a yeast infection that causes round, white patches in your mouth. If population of yeast in your gut increases beyond a certain limit, it can give rise to stomach bloating, stomach cramps and excess flatulence. Esophagitis is a yeast infection that affects your oesophagus and makes it very hard to swallow food. Yeast also affects skin, causing redness, rashes and itching.
The treatment includes antifungal medicines to eliminate yeast infections. If you have a weak immune system, then you should consume diets such as fruits, vegetables, fish, fish oils, nuts and legumes to enhance your immune system.
It also makes a good idea to take a supplement that helps boost your immune system. Higher Nature Premium Naturals Immune + is a popular brand on the market that is available in easy-to-swallow tablets. The high potency immune combination provides vitamin C, Black Elderberry, Billberry and Blackcurrant, plus zinc. Vitamin C helps maintain a healthy immune system and skin.
