How To Prevent And Cure Vaginal Thrush

Although this website mainly targets weight loss and diet products a majority of our readers are women.

With this mind it would be irresponsible not highlight a condition that will effect approximately 80% of women during their lifetime.

This condition is Vaginal Thrush.

It is estimated that in the UK alone that 4 out of every 5 women will experience vaginal thrush at some point in their lives and even more worryingly 5% of women in the UK will suffer from repeated bouts known as recurrent or recurring thrush.

This figure could be much much higher as due its delicate nature many women prefer to self treat rather than visit their GP.

The Vagina Is A Perfect Host For Thrush To Thrive

Vaginal thrush has a certain stigma attached to it, it is often viewed as a sexual disease or the result or poor personal hygiene but in reality nothing could be further from the truth.

It is thought that vaginal thrush is caused by a yeast called Candida. Candida is present in all human beings to varying degrees and live in and around parts of our bodies that are warm and moist – the vagina is a perfect environment for Candida to thrive.

Candida is usually harmless but there are occasions when this yeast multiplies to such an extent that it causes irritation, stress and ultimately a poorer life quality.

A Candida overgrowth can strike anyone at anytime there appears to be no typical demographical or lifestyle traits that make some more prone than others.

Typical Symptoms Of Vaginal Thrush

Symptoms can range from the mild to debilitating. A burning or itching sensation, an unwelcome white discharge, pain when urinating or during sexual intercourse are commonalities.

Sufferers of vaginal thrush will be well aware of the discomfort and anxiety it can cause.

So What Can Be Done To Cure Thrush

Remarkably, there are some factions of the medical profession that deny the existence of candida making it very difficult (practically impossible) to get a consistant medical diagnosis.

However, there are products available both via prescription and commercially available over the counter that can treat the symptoms and discomfort.

Treatment is usually via a combination of tablet and cream. Once applied the symptoms, irritation and discharge usually subside in a matter of hours or at least a couple of days.

Treating a bout of thrush is relatively simple. It is just that sufferers have to live through the initial stages and experience discomfort before the effects of the treatment start to work.

What if there was a product that tackled the root of the problem rather than dealing with the aftermath!

Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Recurrent Thrush – Repeated Episodes

Treating individual thrush episodes does not tackle the problem of repeated bouts, the aforementioned recurrent thrush.

It is often said prevention is better than cure – if there was a product available that could eradicate the underlying cause of vaginal thrush you would have thought it would be available via the NHS.

Vaginal thrush it would seem is not deemed a severe enough condition for the NHS to invest resource into. Research is pretty much non existant.

There is however a combination of substances that when combined can restore and balance the body’s natural yeast balance and strengthen the immune system. These substances are Probiotics.

More about Probiotics

There are four specific strains of Probiotics that when combined and taken regularly can stabalise Candida and dramatically reduce the severity and frequency of bouts of vaginal thrush.

The four strains are:

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus GR-1
  • Lactobacillus RC-14
  • Lactobacillus plantarum 299v

Harvard Medical School produced the results of a study highlighting the success of using Probiotics to prevent vaginal thrush and urinary conditions forcing the NHS to admit that vaginal thrush could be prevented in a majority of cases if research and development was entered into.

Alaczen – Treat and Prevent Thrush

Once again is it left to private industry to formulate – and formulate is exactly what they have done, or at least one privately owned company.

AlaczenA product called Alaczen is now available to buy in the UK.

It is a formulation of the four most effective strains of Probiotic. The use of Probiotics is largely misunderstood and underused.

For Probiotics to have any effect at all you will need at least a “billion live” per dosage – Alaczen provides 48 billion per dosage!

It targets both the root of the problem as well as soothing the aftermath.

It is suitable for women who have the occasional bout as well as sufferers of recurrent or recurring thrush.

A cost for a one month supply is around £29.99 and is available to purchase direct from the manufacturers website.
