When most people think of yeast infections (when they think about them at all, which is probably when they, or someone close to them has actually one) nine times out of ten they will keep the infection in the vagina. Which is fair enough, since it is the most usual area where these infections take hold.
However, the yeast will grow in many places in and on our body, such as under the armpits and breasts, in folds of the skin, often in the mouth. When we get a yeast infection in the mouth, it is referred to as oral thrush. To be strictly accurate expression thrush a temporary Candida infection that often occurs in the mouth of children, however, they still observed generally in adults.
Candida albicans, yeast fungus that causes oral thrush, is present in the mouth almost half the population. And everyone who wears dentures will present Candida, without necessarily causing any problems. Problems arise only when the balance of organisms in the mouth is upset in some way to allow the yeast to take the upper hand as it was.
This is where asthma comes into the equation. Suffering from asthma (and this situation is increasing worldwide) commonly used inhaler to help their breathing. These inhalers containing several different substances, including steroids. So it is not difficult to use an inhaler will upset the balance of microorganisms in the mouth. Reduce the amount of “good” bacteria that normally keep things under control, and allow the yeast infection to take hold.
Oral thrush appears by the appearance of a creamy, yellow, slightly raised patches in the mouth. These are not generally painful, but oral thrush can cause burning in the mouth and throat.
Now I’m not saying that all asthma sufferers should throw out their inhaler. They are an important tool in the treatment of the condition. However, you may be able to reduce their use significantly. Just be aware of the relationship, especially if you are prone to yeast infection, can help to stop you reach inhaler when it is not necessary.
There is also another natural method you can use to control asthma, and this will also significantly reduce, and even defeat, fungal infection as well. This is as simple as drinking enough water. Yes, you may well have heard this before. You may even have tried it for a short time. But this is something that should be part of the daily lives of all.
We are almost all dehydrated to some degree or another. We are made up largely of water. The average adult male contains 55% of the body weight of water, and we need to maintain the correct ratio for our welfare.
dehydration has been proven to be detrimental to us in several ways, and symptoms of dehydration include asthma and yeast infections. We get theswe symptoms or signs if you want, because thirst is not a good indication of our need for water. While we need water in significant quantities nature has given us great tolerance for thirst. Therefore, when we feel really thirsty, we are already somewhat dehydrated.
We should be drinking half of our pound weight in ounces every day. That is £ 150 a person should drink 75 ounces of water a day. But to keep it even simpler to say eight to ten glasses of water a day should be sufficient for most of us.
Make sure that there is plain water, do not contain tea, coffee, juice and alcohol in the calculation. Tea, coffee and alcohol are actually diuretics and will dehydrate you further watering you. And not just give it up after a week or two when you feel better (as you will) make it a daily habit and you will soon get on top of asthma and yeast infection.
