Yeast Infection Post Surgery – Why You’ve Been Infected When You Should Be Getting Over Your Surgery

Yeast infections after surgery are getting more common, but it isn’t the surgery that causes the infection, it’s the course of antibiotics afterwards. Antibiotics use is on the increase and so are yeast infections, and the two are related. Anti bacterial drugs are needed after surgery, but it’s the harmful side effects of these needed anti bacterial drugs that cause the Candida overgrowth in yeast infection sufferers bodies.

Your antibiotics were prescribed to kill any bacteria that entered your body after surgery, and to prevent you getting any infections. This is something that is needed, and can’t be avoided, but the antibiotics also kill all the other bacteria in your body, and your friendly/beneficial bacteria are also killed. Your friendly bacteria are your first natural defence against infection causing bacteria and fungus. When it has been killed by the antibiotics your body is open to any type of infection, and a yeast infection is always the first one anyone will get after antibiotics use.

Once the course of antibiotics has finished your body is left unprotected. This allows the Candida Albicans yeast to mutate into a fungus. A diet that is high in sugar and refined carbohydrates speeds up the process of the mutating because these foods are the Candida’s favorite.

Your friendly bacteria that have been killed by the antibiotics are also needed for a healthy immune system. A weakened immune system will leave your body open to infection as well as a low friendly bacteria population.

To reverse what the antibiotics have done you need to…

Rid your body of the health destroying fungus

Repopulate your intestines with friendly immune boosting bacteria

Avoid all the foods that will feed the mutated Candida

You can attempt to do this on your own or you can get expert help from someone who has years of experience in dealing with Candida.

Whichever way you choose to heal yourself I hope you get cured as soon as possible. Yeast infections after antibiotics are tougher than most Candida infections because the yeast has already been exposed to anti bacterial drugs so it will have mutated into a stronger strain of fungus.
