Dis a depress mi HELP!

Alright Putus!
Those symptoms sounds like you may have a yeast infection. Sounds like you ate lots of sugars and had too much alcohol Christmas, mhmm nuff sex too! All those contribute to your infection. So try this:


Bread (with yeast as rising agent)

  • Sweets
  • Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Dairy (except ‘live active yogurt’)

Why should you to do this?
You want to prevent the fungi (yeast) from mass producing in your body.
You should then detoxify and get your body back to an alkaline state by:

  • Drinking at least 1 litre of coconut water daily
  • Eating vegetables and fruits like: kale, spinach, callaloo, lettuce, watermelons, currants and pineapples.

While cleansing your body, you want to eat foods rich in antioxidants and probiotics which help to restore healthy vaginal flora, replenish good bacteria and rebalance your PH and re-build your immune system, such as:

  • Yogurt with ‘Live Active Cultures’ (look for that on the labeling or nutritional facts).
  • Garlic – take a peg before bed
  • Apple Cider vinegar- 1 tablespoon to a cup of water before bed

Seeing that you’ve worked on the inside, what you can do as topical treatment is make a herbal rinse with Rosemary and Thyme, yes guh dung a market! Those herbs have antimicrobial properties that help fight fungi and also sooth irritation as the solution works as an astringent.

    • Boil a gallon of water
    • Pour over 3 tablespoons of Rosemary and Thyme herbs

Prevention better than cure! Suh continue to eat healthy, exercise, stay away from stressful environments and #LiveWellJa
