Can I Get Rid of a Yeast Infection Naturally?

Heal NaturallyDeborah, Is it possible to get rid of a yeast infection without relying on drugs?

Yes, you can. While there are tons of pharmaceutical drugs on the market today, there are quite a number of natural remedies you can use to get rid of yeast infections, whether vaginal or systemic.

While a quick Google search will show you that there are tons of different Candida diet programs out there, you’ll also find a number of people touting natural anti-fungal pills, or probiotics, that they claim will cure your yeast infection rather quickly.

The truth is that there is no “quick fix” for a yeast infection of any kind. If you want to go the natural route, you’ll need to be patient and follow the program you’ve chosen carefully. One of the most common natural antifungals is tea tree oil, and to use it you must be persistent. According to the NIH, high concentrations of tea tree oil does show as much effect as many antifungals.

Please see here for the difference between male and female yeast infections. When it comes to vaginal yeast infections, of an acute nature, you may find that douches made with yogurt or tea tree oil do the trick. There are several different methods for making yogurt douches, and this is generally the only time I recommend douching at all. Otherwise, douching really does nothing but alter the balance of yeast and bacteria in your vaginal area and can actually cause a yeast infection or some other form of vaginitis.

If you have chronic vaginal infections, or if you are suffering from some other systemic form of Candida, you’ll want to incorporate a natural diet plan with some antifungal supplements. The diet plan will involve cutting processed foods, sugars, carbohydrates, and any other food that can feed Candida or cause it to thrive from your diet. You’ll take some natural herbal supplements to kill off the overgrowth, and some to support your immune system so that the Candida die-off doesn’t make you too ill. You’ll also need to take a probiotic to restore the proper balance of bacterial flora in your intestines.

As you can see, any good candida plan involves getting a good diet with the right supplements. You should use both. For top rated candida supplements, please check out probacto’s products.
