I have had problems with yeast under my breasts, as I am a large chested woman, since I was a teenager and it has been a slow uphill battle to find a definitive cure for chronic breakouts. I also have recurring vaginal yeast due to the same imbalance of healthy bacteria due to poor diet, as most Americans have.
In the past I tried probiotics in supplemental form, probably in my early 20’s to no avail, as it seemed to make my stomache get even more irritated. I have also tried yogurt, but with my dairy intolerance it also caused an adverse reaction. The only suggestion I received was to take a strong yeast fighting medicine called diflucan consistently, and indefinitely. All was well until I travelled overseas and it seems like this regimen is frowned upon.
Since I have had yet another issue I have decided to try again alternative methods. I just purchased some oil of oregano which I have read helps with antifungal issues. It smells very nice, a bit like mint, and it tingles like tea tree oil. I put one drop in a teaspoon each of olive oil and placed it on my bedside to use as a topical ointment. We shall see if it stands up to the hype.
Also, I was reintroduced to a product that I use for my hair health as it also seems to be helpful in fighting yeast. Apple cider vinegar can be drank warm with a splash of lemon and cayenne pepper to help cleanse the body. I have started drinking this in the evening and morning to do more to regulate a healthier gut flora.
I also bought some more probiotic supplements, which is infused with b vitamins. I hate taking pills but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to make the body sing in unison. While I was at the health food section I also picked up some nutritional yeast to add to my vegan/vegetarian food journey. I wondered if it would be contraindicated to my yeast problem, but I read that it should not have any negative impact. Again we shall see.
I did learn that coconut oil and also fermented foods like kimchi and sauerkraut are natural probiotics and help fight candidias by replenishing your gut with healthy bacteria.
