Rule #2: Fighting is out, balance is in. We talk about yeast as though we’re fighting a war. Candida lives throughout your system, even in a healthy body. You don’t need to knock it out or beat it back. You do need to address the root of the problem, but not by thinking you’re going to eliminate yeast. Instead, you’ll restore the balance in your body and promote a strong, healthy personal biosystem, so you don’t get overwhelmed by Candida overgrowth.

The most commonly known yeast infection home remedy is using live yoghurt. It can be eaten or better still applied locally to the affected area. This yeast infection home remedy is usually done using a tampon with yoghurt on it. In the past I have also tried this but have found an additional remedy to help as well. I use camomile.

For instance, eating unsweetened yogurt can actually help in eliminating the yeast, which in turn eliminates the infection. Although this is a long-term method, it can prevent any yeast infection from recurring. For faster results, you can dip a tampon in unsweetened yogurt and insert it into the vagina. Try to repeat this twice a day and you will soon see results.

home remedies for yeast infection One thing people with candida should take note of is that carbohydrates may aggravate your condition. As carbohydrates form a main part of many people’s diet, this becomes a problem when people do not keep their diet in check. Sometimes, even after yeast infection is cured, it comes back very quickly because the afflicted person starts taking in carbohydrates once they see their symptoms disappearing. This is a big mistake as 9 in 10 times the yeast will come back.

yeast infection home remedies Sometimes, though, the numbers of good bacteria aren’t sufficient to prevent the Candida fungi from overgrowing. This can happen due to things like too much antibiotics, steroids, diabetes, a lowered immune system, poor diet, drug habits, etc. When this happens you have a yeast infection. These can appear most anywhere; the intestinal tract, vagina, mouth, anus, etc. The most common among women sufferers is vaginal yeast infection.

In order for us to know what type of remedies to use for the infection, we must first know how it starts and what causes it. Well, the infection is caused by a fungus called candida albicans. Now this type of fungus is already in our bodies and it usually very harmless. But if the fungus starts to grow excessively, then it results to an infection. Now the overgrowth of the fungus is caused by a major imbalance in our body like if we get really sick, stressed out or even pregnancy.

If you are having a yeast infection, you need to know that garlic naturally inhibits yeast. Some people advise using tabs of garlic or cloves, placing them in the vagina. You can also take garlic internally if this is your preference. Garlic will make the itching and burning sensation disappear while fighting off the infection.
