Yeast Infection causes

Yeasts, fungi and bacteria are all part of the natural flora that appears all over our bodies, they will have higher populations in different parts of our bodies due to the different 'mini climates' that we all have.

Areas like the face and hands which are out in the open and more exposed to wind and sun will be drier, while other parts which are always covered provide warm, dark and humid conditions which are ideal for the growth of fungi and yeasts. Areas such as the armpits, folds in the skin and especially vagina's are very prone to the development and multiplication of yeasts.

Normally there is a healthy and natural balance of fungi, bacteria and yeasts, however it only takes a small change in what we eat or apply to our bodies to upset this delicate balance and get an overgrowth of yeast.

And the first place it will appear is the vagina because the conditions of warmth, moisture, darkness and lack of oxygen are just right for an overgrowth to develop.

Studies show that 3 out of 4 women will develop a yeast infection at some time and there are numerous factors that can contribute to a yeast infection.
The first is sugar, a high intake of sugar actually feeds the yeast causing it to multiply out of control.

This requires a yeast infection treatment that will return the body to its natural balance.

One such natural yeast infection treatment which has been very successful is the essential oil of the New Zealand Manuka tree. This Manuka oil is formulated in natural cream, oil and soap products which make up a comprehensive yeast infection treatment pack.
