Naturally Prevent Yeast Infections and UTIs


| 6/6/2016 12:39:00 PM


Yeast infections are very common. So common, in fact, that 75 percent of women will have one at some point in their life. Most vaginal yeast infections are caused by Candida albicans, an organism that feeds on sugar and yeast, and unbalanced pH levels. If you’re prone to yeast infections, or UTIs, you’re not alone and can do a number of things to avoid them.

I’ll keep this short and sweet. Follow these five recommendations and you’ll be much less likely to ever worry about vaginal health, again.

probiotics for women's health

Take a high potency vaginal probiotic. If you’re like me, you like chocolate and sweets sometimes. Well ladies, we can’t eat sugar without taking a probiotic because sugar feeds yeast. So, if you don’t take a probiotic to help battle the yeast—the yeast will get out of control. I am absolutely not a pill or supplement person, but I always take a probiotic; it is a necessity. A quality vaginal probiotic, one with acidophilis (and, no, yogurt is not enough) maintains a healthy bacterial balance in your yoni and urinary tract.

Garden of Life RAW Probiotics Vaginal Care 50 Billion is my favorite. If I go more than five days without it, my body tells me to bring it back. Note: These particular probiotics do require refrigeration. When I go on vacation, I have a shelf stable probiotic with me at all times and Health Force Friendly Force is a good one. Healthy Force is primarily for gut health, but it’s good to change things up sometimes. However, any quality, high-potency, shelf stable acidophilis will do on the road.



No more polyester pants. I don’t care how great they may make you look, your yoni needs to breath. Wear only natural, breathable under garments and pants. When you can, go commando. Yep, I did just say that.
