Please suggest a good medicine for penile yeast infection it's been around for 9 months.
Hello- Yogurt Lactobacillus acidophilus, a “friendly” strain of bacteria present in yogurt, can control the growth of infection in the body. For treating a yeast infection, only use plain, unsweetened yogurt. You can externally apply plain yogurt on the affected skin area and let it sit for at least 20 to 30 minutes, or preferably overnight. This will help relieve the itching sensation. Also include yogurt in your diet plan.

Walnuts may promote health by changing gut bacteria”

  • Walnuts in the diet change the makeup of bacteria in the gut, which suggest a new way walnut may contribute to better health. Walnuts have been called a ‘superfood’ because they are rich in omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linoleic acid and fiber and they contain one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants. Now an additional superfood benefit of walnuts may be their beneficial changes to gut microbiota. Walnuts in the diet increases the diversity of bacteria in a gut. Walnuts increases several bacteria like Lactobacillus, typically associated with probiotics suggesting walnuts may act as a prebiotic. Prebiotics are dietary substances that selectively promote the numbers and activity of beneficial bacteria.
  • The researchers conclude that the reshaping of the gut microbe community by adding walnuts to the diet suggests a new physiological mechanism to improve health. Eating walnuts has been associated with reduced cardio vascular disease risk and improve brain health.

Vaginal Yeast Infections - Signs You Must Be Aware Of!

Vaginal Yeast Infections - Signs You Must Be Aware Of!

In a healthy individual, there are millions of microorganisms in different parts of the body which are essential for normal functioning of that particular organ. Be it the mouth or the gut or the reproductive tract, there are normally organisms. These form part of the normal flora of that body part. It is when there is an imbalance between the good and bad bacteria, where the bad ones take over, then there is a problem. This results in an infection, which manifests with symptoms and requires treatment.

Vaginal yeast infection is one of the most common such conditions and almost 75% of the women would have had it at least once in their lifetime. It is most commonly caused by the yeast Candida albicans, which is normally present in the vagina. Though it can be sexually transmitted, it is not a usual STD.

Causes: The vagina also contains the bacteria Lactobacillus, which produces acid and is essential for maintaining an acidic environment. This acidic environment ensures there is no overgrowth of the yeast. For various reasons, this balance is lost and there is an overgrowth of yeast leading to vaginal yeast infections. Some of the common causes are listed below.

  • Antibiotic usage, which kills the Lactobacillus count and increases vaginal pH
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Weakened immunity due to various reasons
  • Pregnancy
  • Increased levels of oestrogen due to use of birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy

Symptoms: The symptoms would depend on the severity of the infection.

  • Vaginal itching, burning, and irritation
  • Vulvar swelling, irritation, and redness
  • Burning sensation with urination or intercourse
  • Vaginal rash
  • Vaginal soreness and pain
  • Vaginal discharge that can be thick or thin, white or clear, odor-free or foul-smelling

In cases of recurrent vaginal yeast infections, there could be more than 4 infections per year along with extensive burning and itching and swelling that could even lead to cracks and fissures.

Diagnosis: Though the symptoms can be helpful in diagnosis, sometimes a pelvic exam and swab of the vaginal discharge might be required to confirm the diagnosis. This is especially required in cases of repeated infections.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Yoghurt: Wonder Food

B.Sc, BHMS
Homeopath, Lucknow

Yoghurt

An ancient food, yoghurt has bad many great claims made about its healing properties. It is a valuable source of nutrients and it has the extra bonus of being an  excellent infection fighter.  Yoghurt is also very easy to make.

Whatever its healing properties, yoghurt is a nutritional boon. It is a good source of milk nutrients, such as protein, calcium, potassium and riboflavin. Yoghurt is recommended by many medical practitioners to postmenopausal women because it is such a rich source of calcium, which creates bone density, and helps to prevent the brittle-bone disease osteoporosis.

INFECTION-FIGHTING PROPERTIES

Research conducted at the Long island Jewish Medical Center, New York, has substantiated the claim that yoghurt is an effective treatment for vaginal yeast infections such as thrush. A group of women with a history of chronic yeast infections agreed to eat 225 grams ( 8 ounces) of ‘live’ yoghurt containing the Lactobacillus acidophilus culture each day for six months. As a result, they suffered far fewer yeast infections than a control group who did not eat yoghurt.

Research by Dr. George M. Halpern at the University  of California School of Medicine at Davis found that yoghurt may also boost the immune system. People who ate two 225 gram pots o ‘live’ yoghurt containing Lactobacillus bulgaricus each day for four months had significantly higher blood level of gamma-interferon, one of the body’s infecition-fighting substances. Further studies by Dr. Halpern found that consuming regular doses of yoghurt also cut the chances of catching a cold by about 25 percent, and reduced the symptoms of hay fever by a similar amount. Yoghurt is also thought to increase the activity of NK  (natural killer) cells in the body, which attack viruses.

Does only ‘live’ yoghurt work?

It was previously believed that only yoghurt which contained live cultures of Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and streptococcus thermophilus had disease-fighting  powers. But research by Dr. Joseph A Scimeca at Kraft General Foods in the United States has shown that even yoghurt that has had the majority of its live cultures killed by heating or freezing will still boost the immune system.

THRUSH

A common infection, thrush is caused by the yeast Candida albicans. Although it is always present in the body, certain conditions and doses of antibiotics, can cause the yeast to proliferate and produce the infection. Thrush usually affects the vagina but may also affect the mouth, throat and anal area. Vaginal thrush produces a thick white or yellow discharge and intense irritation; oral thrush causes white patches in the mouth and anal thrush is associated with a rash and irritation.

MAKING YOUR OWN YOGHURT

  • Yoghurt is cheap and very easy to make. All you need is a saucepan, a thermometer, a bowl or a vacuum flask, 570 of milk (any sort will do) and a tablespoon of ‘live’ plain yoghurt.
  • Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat to boiling point. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the milk to cool to 49*C. Add  1 tablespoon of live plain yoghurt to the milk as a ‘starter’ and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour the mixture into a bowl and cover it with non-PVC cling film. Alternatively, pour the yoghurt mixture into a vacuum flask and then screw down the stopper.
  • If you are using a bowl, wrap it in a towel and put it in a warm place. Leave the mixture undisturbed until it thickens, usually after eight hours. Be careful not to let the mixture incubate for too long as it may start to separate.
  • Pour into pots and eat immediately or refrigerate. Yoghurt will keep for up to five days. Save 1-2 tablespoons of your yoghurt as a ‘starter’ for the next batch. You may have to buy a fresh ‘starter’ after making a few batches.

TASTY VARIATIONS

If you want a yoghurt with a creamier texture or a fresh tasty dessert, follow these suggestions.

THICKER TEXTURE

To make a thick Greek-style yoghurt, line a large colander or sieve with gauze or muslin. Pour boiling water through the gauze to scald it. Place the colander or sieve over a bowl, pour in the yoghurt and let it drip overnight .

SWEETER TASTE

Add honey, chopped fruit, or unsweetened cooked fruit puree for sweetness or flavor after the yoghurt has been made.

ICED DESSERT

Frozen yoghurt made with low-fat milk provides a less fattening dessert than ice cream.

IDEAS FOR USING YOGHURT

  • Yoghurt is delicious eaten on its own, but combining it with other foods can provide a variety of nutritious snacks or meals. Choose low-fat varieties.
  • Add yoghurt to soups or casseroles to thicken and add creaminess. When cooking with yoghurt, use a low heat high temperatures can make the mixture curdle.
  • Use yoghurt as a tasty topping for muesli or fruit desserts, potato salad, baked potatoes and cold pasta dishes.
  • Add lemon rind and paprika to yoghurt to make a sauce for kebabs.
  • Mix fresh herbs and garlic with yoghurt to transform it into a delicious dip or dressing for salads.
  • Use yoghurt instead of cream in cake fillings and toppings.
