Yeast Infection

An interesting post on Atheist Revolution examines some of the disconnect between the word of God and the word of God's followers. For instance, under the "old" law, the law of Moses, God liked burnt offerings, the sacrifice of animals - by today's religious standard, satanism. Homosexuality is also forbidden and punishable under the old law, but no more emphasis is placed on this violation than any other.

So, wait...why aren't animal sacrifices, yeastless unleavened and other kosher laws followed by Christians today?
Oh ya! Christ! He's part of that whole "New Covenant" thing, like in Hebrews 9:15:
For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, because a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant.


The Hebrews author continues in 10:9 - "He abolishes the first in order to establish the second."

Christ came to replace the old law so we wouldn't have to sacrifice animals, so we wouldn't have to stone people for minor offenses, or kill people for being gay. As far as my memory serves, Jesus didn't seem all that caught up with hatin' on gays; in fact, he seemed a little more concerned with the poor, disabled, children, widows, and sinners across the board. The closest thing to gay hate in the new testament are broad statements that include a list of several other kinds of sinners like thieves, the greedy and robbers.

Which begs the question: If Christ's new covenant of "love thy neighbor" replaced the old "kill the homo and every other sinner," why do Christians still have the opposite concerns and hold the opposite values as Christ himself?

Yeast infections usually develop in the damp or moist areas of the human body. Their symptoms appear beneath the skin folds, lower parts of the abdomen, finger nails, and vagina and around the dentures. They become more common with age. Yeast infections normally affect the vaginal area and causes irritation and burning. They are chronic infections that recur frequently. You need a tested and proven medicine in order to prevent its attack again.

There are many treatment options available for yeast or Candida infection. Antifungal medicines are used to cure vaginal yeast infections. They are available in the form of creams or ointments. You can directly insert them into the vagina. If your male sex partner does not show any signs of yeast infection then treatment of your sex partner is not necessary. However, if there are symptoms of infection, your spouse or sex partner have to be treated with antifungal ointments or creams. There are many medicines available at medical stores or pharmacies. But you must not use them without consulting a good doctor. It may be harmful for you to use them on your own. This is especially recommended if you have contracted the disease for the first time or if you are pregnant. The symptoms of the infection may reappear if you do not use a tested or result oriented ointment or cream. You have to use creams from two weeks to six months or as recommended by your doctor. If irritation reappears during the cure you have to stop the medicine.

The way to get rid of a yeast infection is to use over-the-counter lotions or creams that are manufactured to kill this fungus and put your vaginal ambiance back to normal again. Repetitively used products include fungicides, all of which are available at your local pharmacy.

In case the infection develops into more serious and systematic disease, certain strong fungicides are recommended by doctors. Vaginal or oral yogurt is used for the treatment of yeast infection in women. If you make yogurt a vital part of your everyday diet, it can be helpful for you. Yogurt contains lactobacillus acidophilus that can reduce the recurrence of Candida infection.
