natural remedies for yeast infectionSweet things are definitely out of the question as these are sources of high carbohydrates. If you are serious about curing your yeast infection, then you need to stay away from anything sweet. Some places would recommend eating yogurt to cure yeast infection. Well, I am no exception. I strongly recommend a daily intake of yogurt. Once a day before lunchtime works fine. One thing to note however, is that you need to get the UNSWEETENED kind. I personally know of many flavored yogurts that taste great but the only ones you can go for are the sour probiotic natural ones.

However, the effect of adopting home remedies for yeast infection ( are still not obvious yet. Some patients try the method and get convincing result. While others may not see such result.

Probiotics, also known as good bacteria, is a popular method of treating yeast infections naturally. Probiotics combat the growth of harmful elements such as Candida in the human body. Probiotics can be taken orally, there are also suppositories available.

Your doctor will more than likely give you an over the counter drug to take. One of the most used prescription drug is diflucan and it has been approved by the FDA. The symptoms of this infection are many but the most common are swelling, burning, itching, vaginal discharge, and pain during sex.

Then these medications will not help you in the long run. There are certain natural remedies which can provide you with relief from the infections. One such natural ingredient is garlic. Garlic boosts your immunity and heals the infection naturally.

Thyme. Same with the rosemary, you can make thyme tea. You can do this by combining one teaspoon of some dried thyme and one cup of hot water. This is effective if you drink up to four cups of the tea in a day.

It’s not bad enough that vaginitis brings uncontrollable itching and an almost unbearable burning feeling, but other sorts of conditions that cause it aside from the said infections. There’s bacterial vaginosis and parasitical trichomoniasis which you can get from sex (a good enough reason to wear a condom!) and I also found out that these infections don’t let up once you don’t get your period anymore. Menopause lowers your estrogen levels, which also makes you drier and more prone to identical symptoms.

While it is a little sticky and uncomfortable it is also highly effective. Simply take some honey and apply to the infected areas, be liberal with it (honey isn’t expensive as a yeast infection home remedy 😉 ). The reason this approach is a little better is because you can simply leave the only applied for 20 minutes or so. After this have a warm bath or shower and rinse the areas you applied honey to. Dry the affected areas well after your bath or shower.

Honey is another yeast infection home remedies that rid the infection. The next time you bath, try to place honey on the infected area. Let it stay for a while and remove it if you want. The thing with honey is that it gives you a yucky feeling so handle it to what fits you.

Many people who have yeast infections are told to take baths for relief. I know someone who said a bath helped them tremendously, but adding apple cider vinegar to the mix will be even more beneficial. All you have to do is add 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a warm bath, stir, and lay in the mixture for 15 minutes. After your bath, dry off, and put on cotton underwear afterward, preferably.
