I had re-occuring yeast infections for 2 years. That is how I determined I had a candida problem. I found a simple technique to fight the yeast infections. Take a clove of organic garlic, peal it (making certain not to nick the surface), then insert it into your vagina. This method, though somewhat strange has stopped my YI symptoms in their tracks. It is best to change the garlic every 2-4 hours. The more you change it, the better it works.
