Candidiasis, better know as thrush or a yeast infection is a fungal infection resulting from the overgrowth of certain types of bacteria normally present in all people. Yeast infections most often strike women and most women will develop one at least once in their lifetime. It is the most common cause of vaginal irritation.
We will not go into a full description of the symptoms here, as most ladies are already familiar with how to identify a yeast infection.
What we will offer you though is our home remedy for a yeast infection list, in case you aren’t able to immediately get to the doctor’s office or are suspicious of the strong and expensive anti-fungal medications often prescribed as treatment.
Top Home Remedies for Yeast Infections:
Honey – Smeared liberally over the infected “region” is said to bring balance to the area and contain the fungal growth. Let it saturate for five or ten minutes and then bathe.
Yogurt – Eating yogurt daily can help prevent or help clear up a case of yeast infection according to some. The L.Acidophilus bacteria in live or active culture yogurt is said to help balance the fungal growth in the affected area.
Tea Tree Oil. Saturate a tampon with tea tree oil and leave inserted overnight.
Aloe spread over the region may quickly help with the itching.
Colloidal Silver taken daily has been claimed by some to quickly clear up candidiasis.
Grapefruit Seed Extract. 10-15 drops in your morning juice everyday for a month is claimed to sometimes permanently clear up an infection. Some also recommend a daily dose of olive leaf extract together with the grapefruit seed extract.
