Effective Natural Remedies For Vaginal Yeast Infections

Sep 5, 2008
Most women wonder whether natural remedies for vaginal yeast infections really do exist. The facts is, for the short term, they do really exist, and they are a very effective way of treating your infection without the use of anti fungal drugs. These drugs are now becoming a big part of the problem for vaginal Candida infections because they add to the already unbalancing of your vagina's natural bacterial and chemical balance.

One reason that vaginal infections happen in the first place is because the natural equilibrium of bacteria has been upset, and is now in favor of infection causing organisms such as the mutated Candida fungus.

A yeast infection is also a sign that there are other problems elsewhere in the body which have caused the bacterial and chemical imbalance in the body. The vagina is the first place that will show any symptoms because it is the warmest and moistest part of the body which is a perfect environment for fungi to grow in.

One natural remedy for a vaginal yeast infection is the application of natural, live, sugar free yogurt. The yogurt will contain bacteria that naturally lives inside the vagina so it will repopulate the beneficial bacteria that has been lost. This is an effective remedy because the Candida will never become resistant to the treatment like it will an over the counter anti fungal drug or medicine.

To insert the yogurt into your vagina all you need to do is dip a tampon into yogurt, and then insert as you normally would. Just leave it in for a couple of hours and then remove it. Do this a couple of times a day to restore your vagina's natural bacterial balance.

Another natural cure for a Candida infection of the vagina is raw garlic. A clove or two can be placed in a cheese cloth that can be inserted into the vagina for a couple of hours. To make removing the cheesecloth easy you should tie a piece of string to it so you can remove it the same way you do a tampon.

These home remedies will work on a majority of women, and in some cases be more effective than over the counter treatments. This is mainly due to the infection becoming resistant to OTC treatments because of the overuse of them.

Before you try any of these natural cures make sure you visit your doctor first for a correct diagnosis of your infection. If you start treating an infection that isn't a yeast infection then it will just get worse, and most women just assume that the natural cure doesn't work. If you have another vaginal infection then no yeast infection cure will work, and that is why a correct diagnosis needs to be performed first.
