If you have ever suffered with vaginal thrush, having a persistent itch you can’t scratch can drive you crazy! While physically you are dealing with an intolerable itch and other uncomfortable symptoms, the emotional distress can equally make your life feel like hell.
Many of the women I see in my practice will say they feel embarrassed or ashamed about this condition, with some even struggling to talk about it.
Others explain it affects their confidence, their relationship, and that the stress it adds to their lives makes them feel moody, irritable or miserable.
Over 75% of women * experience thrush at some point in their lives, that’s a huge impact on the quality of a woman’s life.
By the time women have arrived to see me, they have already tried all the usual methods with little success. Restrictive diets, anti-candida diets, antifungal medications such as Cantesen or Fluconazole. Some have taken lengthy prescriptions for months on end, that once stopped see symptoms return. Often more aggressively.
The good news is that homeopathy offers a natural solution, not only resolving your distressing symptoms but also gets to the root of the problem and improves your health, so that recurrent attacks become a thing of the past.
Thrush is a vaginal yeast infection and the term Candida is often used interchangeably.
It is caused by an overgrowth of a yeast called Candida Albicans. This yeast lives naturally in the digestive tract and prefers moist conditions found in the intestines and mucous membranes of the body such as the mouth, throat, vagina tract and rectum.
Common symptoms include vaginal itching, burning, redness and irritation, swelling of the entrance of vaginal and vulva and a vaginal discharge which is white or yellowish.
A healthy immune system enables the body to keep the natural balance of bacteria in check.
However, when the natural equilibrium become altered this can create a favourable climate for the Candida to multiply and flourish.
In homeopathy we look for ways to restore this natural balance.
Homeopathy offers an effective treatment for women struggling with thrush as it takes a holistic approach to your health. It aims to treat the root cause of the problem, so the body no longer needs to produce uncomfortable symptoms.
While conventional treatment focuses on destroying the candida, the problem is, it has a tendency to reoccur.
Homeopathy, on the other hand, focuses on boosting the immune system naturally and rebalancing the natural equilibrium so that the body can naturally keep candida growth under control.
By boosting the body’s natural innate healing ability and strengthening the digestive system, the normal status quo can return.
