Skyrocketing rates of antibiotic use have had many unpleasant side effects. Besides the disturbing rise of potentially deadly, antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as MRSA, antibiotic use has led to another common side effect: thrush. "Thrush is most commonly found as infant thrush, breastfeeding thrush or oral thrush," explains Rebecca Haworth, author of "The 3-Day Thrush Cure", which is now available for instant download at http://www.GetRidofThrush.com.
What is thrush? Thrush is yeast overgrowth caused by the fungus candida albicans. Under the right conditions, thrush can grow out of control and cause white patches of yeast overgrowth on the tongue, inside the cheeks and on the gums.
Ms. Haworth explains, "While rarely life threatening, thrush infections can make life hard on breastfeeding moms, babies, toddlers and adults who suffer from oral thrush as well. The mouth is extremely sensitive and the presence of harmful yeast can cause pain and irritation. If left untreated, thrush can also develop into a chronic, low-level systemic yeast infection, which can cause or exacerbate a number of health problems."
In babies, this may translate to unusual fussiness, reluctance to nurse or feed, and low appetite. Breastfeeding mothers are also susceptible to thrush on their nipples and even deep with the breast ducts. Haworth, owner of http://www.GetRidofThrush.com, continues, "It's important to treat thrush quickly and thoroughly to protect the breastfeeding relationship. If nursing is too painful and the thrush is persistent, breastfeeding mothers can be discouraged from continuing to nurse."
While the most common treatment for infant thrush and oral thrush is prescription anti-fungals, these drugs have the risk of side effects. Tandis Brown, mother of two, decided she didn't want to use drugs on her newborn. "I asked my doctor about the potential side effects and I decided it just wasn't worth the risk. I wanted to use something completely safe and natural for my baby."
Rebecca Haworth says she had the same experience and that is what led her to develop her own natural program for curing thrush. "When my baby and I got thrush, I realized that there was such a complete lack of truly effective and safe information on how to cure thrush naturally. Since I have 15 years of experience in the natural health industry, I decided to develop my own program. It took a lot of research and trial-and-error, but I finally developed a formula that's extremely effective. In fact, I haven't encountered one case yet that I haven't been able to cure naturally."
Yeast overgrowth is a common, but lesser known side effect of antibiotic use. Ms. Haworth explains that the proper treatment for thrush also helps to prevent other opportunistic infections from taking hold as well.
