Whatever most of us think about yeast infections, we typically consider vaginal yeast infections that many women get on a regular basis. Although this is a common area where yeast tends to grow, it may happen in any number of areas in our body, including on the skin and in the mouth. Thrush is a common type of yeast infection which occurs inside of the oral cavity but what is it that causes us to have a problem in this area when other people don’t? It might actually be because you are also suffering from another problem, asthma.
One of the main reasons why people get thrush is because they do have asthma and they use an oral inhaler on a regular basis. These inhalers contain a lot of different chemicals, including steroids and whenever they are taken regularly, they promote the overgrowth of yeast. This yeast is typically present in our mouth and in other areas of our body but it is usually kept under control by healthy bacteria that also exists there. Because of the steroids that are in the inhaler, the healthy bacteria is reduced and we typically get an overgrowth of yeast which is difficult to control.
Unfortunately, those of us that use inhalers regularly may not have an option of not using them as a result of our asthma. We may be able to reduce the amount that we are using them, however, by avoiding things that typically cause us to use them in the first place. There is also something else that you may be able to do that can reduce your asthma to almost nothing within a week. This same cure has also how many people to overcome yeast infections in various areas of their body.
Believe it or not, it is as simple as drinking water regularly. Many of us are dehydrated and because of the dehydration that we have been experiencing, perhaps for years, our body is sending us signals to do something about it. These signals include asthma, yeast infections and a number of other maladies that we may be experiencing. By simply increasing our water intake and drinking eight to 10 glasses of water every day, we may be able to help ourselves immensely with these problems. Give it a try and see if your condition doesn’t improve within a week’s time.
