Can Antibiotics Cause Yeast Infections?

Because UTI’s or Bladder Infections are so common and because so many people get them over and over again, a secondary concern is:-

Can Antibiotics Cause Yeast Infections?

Can Antibiotics Cause Yeast Infections?

Esophogeal Candidiasis or Yeast

While modern antibiotics have done some wonderful things, it is widely known that they can also destroy the ‘good’ bugs along with the bad. And because your intestines rely on a proper balance of ‘flora’ or good bacteria to function properly, even one dose or prescription of pharmaceutical antibiotics can cause a certain amount of harm, or a ‘side effect’, an unintended result that can be just as difficult to deal with as the UTI itself. We’re talking about a yeast infection. Our bodies have yeast in them naturally as well. A yeast ‘infection’ is what happens when the yeast in our body gets out of balance because the good bacteria that normally keeps things in check was wiped out, and the yeast then grows out of control.
Yeast infections can cause a whole host of unpleasant symptoms and maladies. It can be much harder to get rid of a yeast infection than the bladder infection, or UTI itself.  Unfortunately, when we attempt to heal our body with a single synthesized component, such as a manufactured drug, there are always unwanted side effects.

One of the most powerful things I’ve learned as I’ve been studying natural healing is that there are plants, herbs, and foods that seem to have been specifically designed to address almost any problem we may have. I believe we have these wonderful things for a reason. They are each a complex combination of nutrients, amino acids, minerals, and building blocks that work together, and are suited for specific applications. They don’t usually have side effects, because their constituents are balanced and complete. It’s only when we try to single out a particular component that is perhaps most responsible for say a plants special healing qualities, that most problems arise.

One of those concepts are natural antibiotics. There are many in the plant world. Here are a few:

  • Garlic
  • Goldenseal Root
  • Oregon Grape Root
  • Grapefruit Seed Extract
  • Melissa or Lemon Grass

(Please see addtional information on this site for how to best use these powerful antibiotics.)

The great thing about natural antibiotics is they don’t destroy the good flora while fighting the bad. And this can be a great way to keep from getting unwanted additional problems such as a yeast infection.  We have found a great book on fighting yeast infection.  It’s by a woman who has done a lot of research on the issue and she offers the book for sale. And just like any book that has been put together by someone through a lot of personal experience and trial and error, it can be quite valuable if you are dealing with yeast problems.  And what most people who study natural healing find out, is that knowledge is power. Power to take control and responsibility for our own health.

So the answer to the question- Can antibiotics  cause yeast infections?, is yes.  And we’ve found that we usually have to take some form of live cultures to get our body back in balance, such as acidophilus, bifidus, etc. if we’ve gone through a prescribed round of drugs.
