A note about An Untreated Yeast Infection - Discussing the Dangers
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
In many cases, the dangers of an untreated yeast infection depend on the type of infection and how it affects the individual to begin with. For instance, many vaginal yeast infections will go away with no treatment at all in a couple of days or so if they are mild. This can often be especially true if a woman can identify her problem and begins to take measures to put good bacteria back into her body. However, some strains of yeast infections have nothing to do with the vagina, and these may have worse effects on the body.
When a person suffers from frequent yeast infections, the cause could be a weakened immune system, such as that caused by AIDS or certain cancer treatments. This situation can often result in a common case of vaginal or mouth yeast infection getting into the blood stream and causing a condition known as systemic candidal disease, where up to 75% of the people affected with this condition can wind up becoming very ill or even dying.
So, there are definitely dangers to untreated yeast infections.
There is also a type of yeast infection which originates in the intestines. Now, yeast occurs naturally in the body and, for many of us, never causes a problem at all. However, at times, when that yeast is allowed to flourish because of an imbalance in the body, you will wind up with a condition referred to as Yeast Syndrome. The symptoms of this type of yeast infection include headache, fatigue and loss of memory, and some people also report sore joints and muscles as well. In severe cases, when Yeast Syndrome is left untreated, it can become systemic.
Again, the risks of an untreated yeast infection must be noted.
In babies, yeast infections will most often occur as diaper rash and thrush. Both of these conditions can cause sores which bleed when rubbed, and these types of yeast infections are often very painful. Thus, in order to ease the pain and discomfort, it is important to treat yeast infections such as these.
You may also discover that as you age, you suffer from a yeast infection in between the folds of your skin. An infection such as this can cause sores, pain and discomfort, but often is localized and easily treatable. If, however, you choose to leave this type of yeast infection untreated, it could spread and become more difficult to take care of. So, even in this relatively mild situation, an untreated yeast infection can bring more problems later.
In fact, you'll likely find that all yeast infections, even the type that grows on the nail beds, will cause you some kind of discomfort, so you will probably want to try to treat it, instead of leaving an untreated yeast infection.
It's also important to keep in mind that even with the most common types of yeast infections, treatment can become more and more difficult, so it's a good idea to catch and treat any kind of yeast infection early on before the yeast has a chance to grow and become stronger.
