Natural Remedies For Vaginal Yeast Infections

Aug 17, 2007
If you are comfortable handling your own body and are generally someone who likes to be in control of your own treatments, it is possible to use natural remedies to treat vaginal yeast infections or thrush.

Many people feel uncomfortable talking to doctors about vaginal yeast infections and prefer to treat their infections with natural mixtures.

Natural mixtures are not always effective so if your vaginal yeast infection persists it is best to see a health professional. But for slight infections you can treat them yourself. In fact for many years women didn't go to the doctor for a vaginal yeast infection. Rather the topic was quite taboo. Because discussing the issue was frowned upon women figured out their own way to treat their vaginal yeast infections.

Using a natural remedy for your vaginal yeast infection will ensure that you don't build up a tolerance to the over the counter and prescription medications on the market. If you do build up a tolerance your vaginal yeast infection can mutate into a form of super vaginal yeast infection, which are very hard to treat. So when you can, and if you feel comfortable, it's great to start with natural remedies.

Natural remedies are not as harsh on your body and rarely have unpleasant side effects. Over the counter and prescription remedies can also smell terrible and some leave you feeling less attractive than the vaginal yeast infection did in the first place. Natural remedies are also cheaper and won't put you in the position of paying the massive drug companies for your own, very personal, problems.

You can use more than one natural remedy and if you find that one doesn't work you can try another. If however you don't find any peace you may have to resort to pharmaceutical care. You can find out more about these remedies and how to apply them on our site and in our articles, but here is a list to get you started.

- Teatree Oil.
- Gentian Violet
- Cranberries
- Herbal Douches
- Acidic Douches

Beer:

Potassium sorbate, which is used to brew beer, can be purchased wherever you can buy home brew kits and you can also use it to stop the growth of yeast in your vagina. You will need to mix 1 tablespoon of potassium sorbate in one cup of water. After this you need to dip a tampon in your mixture.
