Many people have some how developed the idea that alcohol can kill Candida and yeast infections. This is probably due to it’s long time use to help ease pain and fight infection. However, killing Candida with alcohol will only cause you more problems, and this is why.
Candida is a fungus, and it lives in the large intestine of every person. The problem is when the fungus is able to grow uncontrolled and becomes a problem. The recent discovery and use of antibiotics and steroids in modern medicine has been the biggest cause for yeast infection and Candida problems. If you have ever taken either of the two, chances are that the Candida in your body has spread.
If you are thinking about killing Candida with alcohol, you may want to think twice. The fungus thrives and grows in your body when there is an abundance of yeast and sugar. These are the foods that it thrives on. This is why killing Candida with alcohol is not a good idea. The two biggest ingredients in any and all alcohol is sugar and yeast.
Killing Candida with alcohol will actually cause the problem to get worse due to the amount of sugar and yeast in alcohol. There are better, all natural solutions that would do the job.
Over the counter and pharmaceutical drugs are also not a good idea. There are two problems with this solution. The first is that they only treat the current outbreak, not the underlying problem of the fungus being out of control in your body. The second is that there are often side effects to modern medicine. As I said, antibiotics and steroids are the reason we have yeast infection outbreaks in our society today. Stick to the natural, no side effects solutions such as diet and all natural cures.
