Yes, a yeast infection and candida are the same thing, just different names. In order to get rid of it stay away from any food containing Sugar or carbs, clean your body from mercury, stop taking Antibiotics if you take one currently. Also, do you have any mercury dental fillings? If you do it could be a reason you get a yeast infection so easily. Consider them removing with different fillings. The book Candida30: Permanently Heal Your Candida Infection in 30 Days or Less is a great source of information on how to get rid of candida and helped me to beat mine. I hope it helped.
