Natural home remedies are becoming more popular for yeast infections. Mainstream yeast infection treatment is drug-based. These treatments, such as creams and pessaries can relieve symptoms but don’t address the root cause of yeast infections (Candida). There are many home remedies you can use. Some work better than others.
These treatments have been proven to be effective for many patients. Let’s first look at the root cause of your infection. Your symptoms may be caused by Candida Albicans yeast-like fungal infections that we all have, but it takes something else for that overgrowth to occur. Low immune system, hormone imbalance, friendly bacteria depletion and high blood sugar are the main triggers.
Prescription and over-the-counter drugs only treat the symptoms. They do not address the root cause. This is why approximately fifty percent of sufferers have multiple infections. Many of those with recurring infections can have serious consequences for their health.
More people are turning to natural remedies for yeast infections. Natural yogurt, without sugar, coloring or any other additives, is rich in good bacteria that can fight Candida Albicans. You can eat it every day and also give it to anyone who is experiencing symptoms. To beat Candida fungi, you can also dip a tampon into the yogurt and leave it in for overnight. This yogurt has natural anti-fungal qualities.
Raw garlic is a good choice. Eat lots of garlic in food that’s not too well-cooked. Make a paste from raw, peeled garlic. Cover the symptoms with it. Wrap a peeled clove in muslin, and let it sit overnight to make a tampon. This treatment must be un-distilled and unpasteurized raw apple cider vinegar. Take 3 teaspoons of the vinegar to a large glass water. Drink one glass three times daily. To make a douche, add 2 tablespoons of cider and 2 quarts warm water. Use cotton wool to make a douche.
These home remedies have been proven to be effective for many people. You must be aware that there are many things you need to address if you want your yeast infection to be completely cured.
