Your body is much like your motor vehicle. It is reliable and with a little care and maintenance can last for many years. When things go wrong, it will give you the appropriate warning signals; even in the very earliest stages of a big mechanical problem it will tell you that something is wrong. But cars are like humans, too, in the sense that something unpredictable may happen, although the odds are quite rare, they do increase with age. For example, your risk of a heart attack may increase with age just like your car may experience major mechanical failure with age, but with routine and regular maintenance checks the likelihood will be considerably more slim.
Signs and symptoms of an impending yeast infection like increasing gas and bloating, bowel motions that are changeable, and digestive pain that is occurring much more regularly are all signs that something is amiss. All of those digestive problems are telling us our digestive system isn’t functioning properly. This can lead to poor absorption of nutrients and even deficiencies causing fatigue, irritability, poor moods, etc. How can you anticipate your system to conquer any sickness or re-build itself if the food and nutrients aren’t immersed? And in addition, you become a sitting duck for a yeast infection, and some cancer researchers even go as far as saying that a yeast infection of many decades of neglect may even turn into some forms of cancer.
Many women will experience occasional vaginal discomfort or a discharge but the cause should be addressed before the problem becomes chronic and most uncomfortable, when most women seek help. Sometimes a simple treatment and diet change is all that is needed in the earliest stages of a health problem, and the best time to treat any illness is right at the beginning, before any real disease or pathology has taken place. The longer you wait, the more difficult and expensive the treatment will be. This is what I think “drives” a person in to see their mechanic at the first sound of a noise in their car – a costly repair job!
It is our job to address these signs and symptoms as soon as we feel something isn’t right, we need to establish the root cause and establish it as soon as possible to get our health back on track. But, if you are the kind of person who ignores the red light flashing on the dashboard of your car then your problems could grow and escalate into a major health problem. Have you learned anything from your ill health? Was it something you could have prevented? Maybe you could learn something from it and prevent any such further episodes.
