Yeast infections are also known as candidiasis. In the case of vaginal yeast infections, such an overgrowth of Candida cells occur when the normal vaginal flora is disturbed reducing the presence of healthy bacteria such as lactobacilli. It can occur for many reasons. If it’s not treated properly, it grows and infects other organs until it eventually takes over and becomes very toxic to the body.
Natural cures for yeast infections:
