Symptoms of Yeast Infection in the Lungs

There are numerous symptoms of yeast infection in the lungs. To start, let's take a look at what causes this and then how to fix it.

This became a problem for mankind when modern medicine started using antibiotics and steroids. If you have ever taken either of these for anything, chances are that you developed a yeast infection. The reason this happens is due to the antibiotics and steroids killing the micro organism in your body that keep the yeast in your body in check. From there, it's easy for the infection to spread to any and all parts of your body.

Some symptoms of yeast infection in the lungs are shortness of breath, suddenly not being able to breath as well. I had this once and I literally was able to breath fine one day, and woke up the next day with less than half the same lung capacity. Aching of the hands, knees, hips, and other joints are also a sign. Memory problems, the inability to focus, tiredness and fatigue, as well as headaches and migraines are also symptoms.

The problem with over the counter solutions is that they only fix the problem temporarily and do not get things back in check. In order to completely cure the infection, you will need to pay close attention to your diet. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms of a yeast infection in the lungs, chances are very good you have one as 70% of people suffer from it and do not even know it.

You will need to eat lots of vegetables high in fiber and low in starch. Broccoli, asparagus, leafy green vegetables such as lettuce and cabbage are all a great place to start. Be sure to cut out as much sugar as possible if not all of it completely. Also be sure to get rid of simple carbohydrates such as pastas and bread as these turn into sugar in the body. Cut back on fruits also as they have natural sugar.
