Cure Candida Yeast Infection Forever!

Get Rid of Itchy Yeast Naturally

Candida albicans (sometimes referred to as monilia) is a fungus that is normally present on the skin and in mucous membranes such as the vagina, mouth, or rectum. But the fungus also can travel through the blood stream and affect the throat, intestines, heart valves and much more!

Candida albicans can become a dangerous infectious agent when there is some change in the balance of the body's environment that allows it to grow out of control.

The drugs used to fight yeast infections are dangerous, too. Do you remember this scary recall?

Diflucan (fluconazole): Drug Safety Communication – Long-term, High-dose Use During Pregnancy May Be Associated With Birth Defects

AUDIENCE: OB GYN, Pharmacy, Infectious Disease

ISSUE: FDA is informing the public that treatment with chronic, high doses (400-800mg/day) of Diflucan (fluconazole) during the first trimester of pregnancy may be associated with a rare and distinct set of birth defects in infants. This risk does not appear to be associated with a single, low dose of fluconazole 150mg to treat vaginal yeast infection (candidiasis). Based on this information, the pregnancy category for fluconazole indications (other than vaginal candidiasis) has been changed from category C to category D. The pregnancy category for a single, low dose of fluconazole has not changed and remains category C.BACKGROUND: Diflucan is used to treat yeast infections of the vagina, mouth, throat, esophagus and other organs. It is also used to prevent yeast infections in patients who are likely to become infected because they are being treated with chemotherapy or radiation therapy before bone marrow transplant. Diflucan is also used to treat meningitis caused by a certain type of fungus. Pregnancy category D means there is positive evidence of human fetal risk based on human data but the potential benefits from use of the drug in pregnant women with serious or life-threatening conditions may be acceptable despite its risks.

Stop the suffering, and get rid of yeast naturally and safely, once and for all!
