Severe Yeast Infection: The Right Treatment for Quick Safe Relief

Severe yeast infection

A severe yeast infection can be devastating and may cause many discomforts and painful symptoms anywhere in the body. Looking for a relief, many people become desperate and take drastic measures using risky home remedies or harsh antifungal medicine. The result in many cases is that the yeast infection symptoms become even more severe.

This is one of the biggest problems with severe yeast infection treatment: in many cases the areas of concern are so irritated, that remedies or medicine that usually help to relieve mild symptoms, aggravate and make the yeast infection symptoms become worse.

If you find yourself facing a severe yeast infection, it is very important to find what made the yeast infection become so severe. The cause may be different from one person to another, and as such, the treatment you may need can be completely different as well.

Severe yeast infection Causes

Severe yeast infection symptoms usually caused by one or more of the following:

  • Candida die off – You started the treatment and noticed worsening in your symptoms.
  • Mild yeast infection symptoms that got worse over time as the infection spreads when left untreated, or when not treated properly.
  • Sensitivity or issues on the affected areas. This doesn’t have to be related to the yeast infection, although it can cause more discomforts as the yeast infection develops on the problematic area.
  • Individual response to the yeast infection. Some people are very sensitive to candida yeast.

Severe yeast infection symptoms

Severe yeast infection symptoms can cause pain and many discomforts that can drastically affect the quality of life. Most people describe them as unbearable and devastating. Signs of severe yeast infection can appear anywhere in the body and may also affect the way you feel.

Here are the most common severe yeast infection symptoms, and how to treat them properly.

Severe yeast infection due to candida die off

Also known as a healing crisis or herxheimer reaction, this is a common detoxification response of the body to the increased toxins released from the dying candida yeasts during the treatment.

Candida die off is one of the most common reasons for severe yeast infection symptoms. A common misconception about candida die off is that it is a sign that the treatment is working. When you have a candida die off, it means that the amount of toxins released into the circulation is more than what your body can safely handle. Besides the severe yeast infection symptoms that can be unbearable at times, the high level of toxins put a lot of stress on internal organs, especially the colon, liver and kidneys that are involved in filtering toxins in the body.

Candida die off symptoms are usually devastating, with many discomforts that may include:

  • Fever.
  • Brain fog.
  • Joint and muscle pain.
  • Headache.
  • Constipation or diarrhea.
  • Bloating, gas.
  • Nausea.
  • Increased mucus production.
  • Chills
  • Fatigue.
  • Dizziness.
  • Swollen glands.
  • Depression.

The Overnight die off flush

Many severe yeast infection symptoms occur as the the toxins released by the dying candida yeast circulate in the body. The longer these toxins stay in your body, the more severe symptoms they can cause. This is a very common problem in people that have digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, gas and others. Having digestive issues usually means that it can take the body a longer time to eliminate these toxins through normal bowel movements.

Helping your body to flush the candida yeast toxins faster can significantly reduce the severity of many external and internal symptoms. For this reason, cleansing your colon should be your first priority as it is specifically designed to remove the toxins quicker from your body.

Severe yeast infection treatment

The best way to describe a severe yeast infection treatment is “handle with care”. In most cases of severe yeast infections, the body and affected areas are so irritated, that many treatment options that usually work for mild yeast infections do not provide any relief and can even make the symptoms become more severe.

This is where you may see a difference between the mild vs severe yeast infection treatment: when you have a severe yeast infection, you first want to have the severe symptoms under control, provide relief and reduce pain.

Here is a quick summary of how to treat severe yeast infection:

Find the cause of your symptoms

The most important step in a severe yeast infection treatment is to clearly identify the cause of your symptoms, and more specifically, the reason that made them become severe. This reason may be related to actions made during the treatment such as using creams that caused a reaction, antifungal medicine or supplements that caused a severe healing crisis, eating foods you are sensitive to and more. In many cases, when the reason or cause are identified and discontinued, there is a significant improvement in the severity of the symptoms.

Flush out the candida-yeast toxins

Many severe yeast infection symptoms occur as the the toxins released by the dying candida yeast circulate in the body. The longer these toxins stay in your body, the more severe symptoms they can cause. This is a very common problem in people that have digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, gas and others. Having digestive issues usually means that it can take the body a longer time to eliminate these toxins through normal bowel movements.

Helping your body to flush the candida yeast toxins faster can significantly reduce the severity of many external and internal symptoms. For this reason, cleansing your colon should be your first priority as it is specifically designed to remove the toxins quicker from your body.

The overnight die-off toxins flush is one of the most popular natural remedies to achieve that, taken before bedtime.

  • Do things that distract your from the pain. A study done on US soldiers with severe burn wounds, had them  play a 3D computer game called “SnowWorld”. The results clearly showed that playing the game significantly reduced the pain levels as well as the time patients spent thinking about the pain (source).
  • Watch for stress. The connection between stress and the body’s ability to heal has been demonstrated in many studies. As research suggests, psychological stress can delay healing (source).
