(NaturalNews) Three out of four women will experience a yeast infection at some point in their lives. Symptoms like recurring vaginal infections and digestive disorders are now more common than ever before. In this article you will find a list of four healthy foods that hold the potential to prevent or even reverse yeast infection naturally - no prescription drugs required.

Yeast infection - also known as thrush or candidiasis - is a medical condition caused by a bacterial imbalance in the body. This type of infection develops when Candida albicans - a naturally occurring yeast present in all human beings - grows out of control, and its cells overwhelm the beneficial bacteria in the vagina or your GI tract. The result is a vast array of unpleasant symptoms, including chronic fatigue, digestive problems and recurring vaginal infections. The following foods can help prevent yeast infection:

#1) Cold-pressed coconut oil
If you're looking for ways to prevent or even cure Candida overgrowth, coconut oil is probably the best plant-based fat you can add into your diet. It contains caprylic acid, a powerful antifungal agent that directly kills the Candida yeast. Coconut oil is heat stable, which makes it perfect for cooking. You may eat up to three tablespoons per day.

#2) Garlic
Garlic is widely recognized for its wonderful health benefits - and with a good reason. A fresh clove is high in a biologically active compound called allicin. This is a strong anti-fungal substance capable of killing off a wide variety of pathogens, including Candida albicans. Eat two raw cloves each day or buy supplements in a tablet form.

#3) Almonds
Almonds are recommended for two reasons. First, they are well known for their prebiotic properties that improve our digestive health by increasing levels of beneficial gut bacteria. Second, almonds are an excellent source of alkaline protein.

#4) Cayenne pepper
The use of cayenne pepper dates back to ancient times. It improves circulation and metabolism, which is essential in order to cure Candida overgrowth. Cayenne pepper can be used liberally to spice up your favourite meals.

The above four tips are just scratching the surface of the ways that you can prevent or cure chronic yeast infection and stay healthy. Eating real food while avoiding anything that's artificially altered should be your first step towards better health. Let your food be medicine and get rid of yeast infection once and for all.
