can't agree more. i used to get yeast infections until i changed my diet. the change was in reaction to a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome but a wonderful side effect is i haven't had a yeast infection in over a year. i cut out sugar first, since then i have cut out other stuff like dairy but the yeast infections left me when i stopped taking the sugar. might be worth a try then, bearing in mind everybody is unique of course.
drinking plenty of water is important as a prevention too.
once the infection is already there, i have found garlic to be a powerful remedy. not so much eating it as actually sticking a clove up inside your vagina
and leaving it there as long as you can. i know it may sound odd to some but i was advised to try it by a qualified and experienced healer and it worked well for me
