Apr 30, 2008
Although prescribed medications are effective at treating yeast infections. They can actually cause unwanted side effects in a person if used for any length of time. This is one of the reasons why more and more people are looking for natural cures for yeast infections today.

The first thing you will discover when you start investigating online what kinds of natural cures one can use for treating this kind of infection, is there are plenty of them for you to consider trying. Some will require that you apply the treatment directly to the area that is infected, whilst others will need to be taken orally.

Also for women suffering from vaginitis they may be required to actually insert the treatment directly into the vagina to provide them with an effective cure.

One of the most powerful natural treatments that can be used for this particular kind of infection is fresh garlic. This contains both antiseptic and antifungal properties that help to alleviate the symptoms as well as kill off and prevent further growth of yeast.

For women who are suffering from vaginitis with this particular form of treatment they will need to insert a fresh clove of garlic into their vagina every two or three hours during the day. Certainly, within a short space of time the garlic gets to work and they will begin to feel relief from the symptoms associated with the infection and then it may take a while longer before it is cured completely.

Along with garlic another natural way for treating yeast infections is through eating natural live yogurt or applying it directly to the infected area. This food contains large amounts of the good bacteria known as lactobacillus acidophilus and which will help to restore the person's acidity levels back to normal. If you are going to be applying the yogurt directly to the area affected this should be carried out two or three times each day until the infection has been cleared.

Certainly eating or applying the yogurt is beneficial but if you really want the treatment to be affected you should do both together. This will help not only treat the infection that can be seen outside your body but work on the inside at treating and killing off the excess yeast growth which has caused the infection to erupt.

Along with the two forms of natural cures for yeast infection we have mentioned another which is proving to be extremely effective is apple cider vinegar. Just like all the other methods we have mentioned this one helps to bring the acidity levels in your body under control and prevent provide the right environment for the fungus to grow in. The best and easiest way to use this treatment is by adding a cupful of the vinegar to your bath (hot water) and then soaks in it for some time.

In this article we have looked at some different natural cures for yeast infection that you could consider using. Although over the counter and prescribed medications are effective they can cause side effects which may well further exacerbate the problem. If you do intend on using any natural cures then it is advisable that you discuss the matter with your doctor before you do.
