Home Remedies For Yeast Infections That Work Instantly

honey-holistic-remedy

Yeast infections can be embarrassing, even though they are extremely common. While it is more common for women (roughly affecting 75% of women at some point in life) to develop yeast infections, men can also develop them. Most yeast infections are caused by the Candida albicans organism, which can induce severe itchiness, redness, or a white discharge.

 

One of the best ways, specifically for women, to discourage yeast development is to keep the vaginal area dry and clean. Try to wear loose clothing, wear cotton underwear, and practice good hygiene. If you have a yeast infection, make sure that you don’t share towels with anyone because that can spread the infection. Because yeast infections can be treated naturally, try the holistic remedies below and let us know how they work for you.

 

Aloe Vera:

Because aloe vera has antifungal properties, it is one of the best natural remedies for combating yeast infections. If possible, try to use fresh aloe vera so that you don’t have to deal with preservatives, additives, or chemicals. Take 1 tablespoon of aloe vera twice a day and you can apply fresh aloe topically to the affected area until it heals.

 

Manuka Honey:

While yeast feeds on sugar, Manuka honey has antifungal properties that work well to fight off a yeast infection. Apply a liberal tablespoon of Manuka honey topically twice a day until symptoms go away.

 

Garlic:

You’ll think that garlic has superpowers, if you don’t already think that, after you use it as a natural remedy. Eating 2-3 garlic cloves per meal can be beneficial, but you can also insert a garlic clove vaginally. We aren’t going to lie: this can burn. If you are sensitive then avoid that method and add garlic to juices or meals instead.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple cider vinegar can help rid the body of the infection by creating a more alkaline environment. Don’t worry, you don’t have to use this vaginally. Mix 1 tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in 8 ounces of filtered water and drink that three times a day until the infection goes away.

 

Coconut Oil:

If you are experiencing burning or itching, you can apply coconut oil topically to provide relief. You can also ingest 1-2 tablespoons of organic, virgin coconut oil to attack the infection from the inside.

 

Probiotics:

Probiotics promote healthy gut flora and help to boost the immune system. Some of the best probiotic foods to eat include kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, fermented vegetables, and kefir. Make sure to read the ingredient list to ensure the probiotics don’t have sugar.

    Q: Hi there, I never got yeast infections before but I had my first one in March of this year (2015) and have been suffering ever since. I was first treated with fluconazole and the infection went a way for a few weeks and then came back to which I was treated with another dose... again, it came back. I was treated with one more dose of the fluconazole- 3 pills every other day, I'm not sure the strength.... and of course, it came back. I went back to the doc and said I wanted to try a different solution as this wasn't working. They sent my culture into the lab to test for a different strand of candida but it came back just a strong strand of candida albicans. I was sent home with a cream and told to try boric acid suppositories or get put on a weekly prescription of the fluconazole. I don't want to rely on perscription meds that seem to make it only come back stronger. If you have any advice, please please please help me I am so desperate. I have been taking probiotics, using coconut oil for relief and cutting out all sugar. Any help would be so much appreciated. Best, Rokki

    A:

    We always recommend starting off with the Full Body Cleanse to help eliminate the toxins and waste that often contributes to recurring issues in the body. You should move on to the 10 Day Candida Cleanse to specifically address the candida presence in your body. After cleansing you should avoid consuming a lot of sugar, dairy and processed foods. You can also continue to take the Candida Normalizer as a maintenance.

    We also recommend reading our article entitled Candida Albicans: Yeast Infection.http://www.dherbs.com/articles/candida-yeast-infection-144.html

    Q: I have female problems. I have been told I have vaginitis and I get yeast infections a lot. I have a major unbalance in the vagina. Should I do a FULL BODY DETOX? Should I also do the Candida, Vaginitis and Yeast Infection kit or all? Which should I do first? I also have menstrual problems where I spot all the time. Should I stop taking Birth Control? What herbs could I take to regulate my menstrual cycle?

    A:

    I WOULD HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU FIRST PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOXFULL BODY DETOX CLEANSE FOLLOWED BY THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. YES, PERSONALLY I WOULD NOT TAKE BIRTH CONTROL PILLS.

    Q: I'm on my 9th day of the FULL BODY DETOX which I am performing to heal from genital herpes. I am also am suffering from a yeast infection at the moment. I know that under your â€CANDIDA ALBICANS: YEAST INFECTION†article you suggested to do the full body detox. My question is will performing only the full body detox kit wipe away the yeast infection or do I HAVE TO TAKE EXTRA HERBS ON THE SIDE TO TAKE OF THAT problem including the genital herpes problem? During the FULL BODY DETOX you said lemon juice and sea salt for salad dressings but by any chance is regular dressing such as Italian, ranch or blue cheese or even hot sauce ok to eat the salads with? Are we able to eat crouton with our salads while performing the FULL BODY DETOX and anti-viral?

    A:

    After the FULL BODY DETOX, please perform the 10-DAY SUPREME CANDIDA CLEANSE. No commercial brand salad dressings (unless you use Anne's, Follow Your Heart, etc. available from Whole Foods Market). No croutons. Please read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODS†because if you know what raw foods are, many questions will automatically be answered on your own (not that it's a problem, simply for your edification).

Also suffer from an ovarian cyst and bartholins cyst on outside of vagina. Just confirmed my pregnancy yesterday. Please advise me on what I should do.

    Q: I am a 29 year old African American female. I would like to tell you my story and get your advice. Before Sept. 28, 2008 I was a healthy fun loving female but after sept. 28th my health has not been the same. I wake up in the morning weak with nausea and headaches. I went to Kaiser and they said I had a virus and I had to let it take its course. I work with kids and it was hard for me to go back to work because 1. I kept getting sick. 2. My boss was mad that I was sick and not able to work. So I went back to Kaiser and then they said I was sick and had a virus with a mix of anxiety(due to my boss going crazy on me). They said I need to rest and stop being anxious, so I can heal.(well the anxiety is gone) Next I started to get sharp pains in my stomach area(which I have had before on and off for the past couple of years but it would only happen like once or twice a year) but I was scared because the pains we're very sharp and happening like two weeks apart. So Kaiser told me to go see a Upper GI Dr. I went to see one and had an endoscopy done and they found a yeast infection in my throat and that also my esophagus was irritated to but my stomach looked fine. So they put me on Prontiox (for the irritated esophagus and Difucan (for the yeast infection). Well as soon as I finished the medication for the yeast infection in my esophagus, I lost my voice and could not talk for 4-5 days and I still have the stomach pains. So the Upper GI dr. told me the sore throat and losing my voice was a side effect to GERD and that is what I may have. So he asked to up the dose of the Prontiox (so now I am taking 80 mg instead of 40 mg a day). But guess what still having stomach pains and my voice still goes in and out and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and now when I eat, I feel food get stuck in my chest like right in the middle of my breast. So what is going on with me...they have done blood work on me from blood count to checking me for STD's (even HIV) and everything came back normal/negative. And they keep saying all my blood work is healthy...So what is going on and what can I take, because I am a natural person and my system is sensitive to a lot of stuff and I don’t like being on these medications. And now the DRs may think I have IBS..Oh boy Help!! And oh yeah I have had very bad cramps when I have my period and take Motrin and I would like to know is there anything I can take that is sensitive to my stomach... HELP

    Beloved, first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next, perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, and lastly, perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. These kits will repair your system!

    Q: What do you recommend for a very bad case of systemic yeast with many symptoms; cold hands and feet, constipation, mental confusion, bad food digestion, etc? And what about replacing the good bacteria? I have tried many things and nothing has worked. I think this Candida yeast came from being on birth control for a short period of time and then Anti-Biotics for a short time as well, probably stress too.

    A:

    Perform the FULL BODY DETOX for 3-weeks. After the FULL BODY DETOX, take 6 capsules daily of Candida Buster formula, and 3 capsules daily of Colon Conditioner. Try our natural PRO-BIOTIC/ACIDOPHILUS formula to replace the beneficial bacteria.

    Q: Greetings, I wanted to let you know that I have been taking your prenatal vitamins, and they work great! I am expecting in December, and I am still nursing my one year old. Without the herbs I would not have the energy. Also, my husband's brother used your detox, and also loved it. I do, however, have a question for you. I was reading your article on Candida Yeast Infections and came across something very interesting, intertrigo. I believe this is what my daughter has in the folds of her arms. You told me to use shea butter some time back, and it works but the problem has never gone away completely. I believe the problem is internal. I believe we all, my husband, daughter and myself have some form of this yeast problem. I'm taking her to the pediatrician tomorrow, but you and I both know how that's going to end up. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Greetings Beloved! Wow! That's great to hear! Always glad to hear how people benefit from Nature's herbs. And yes, the problem is always internal as I explain in the article "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" which is why you should also concentrate on the child's internal makeup, i.e. liquid extracts, i.e. Vitamin C, Blood Extract, Goldenseal-Echnicaea.

    Q: I've been taking Depo-Provera for 10yrs. I have noticed a discharge but it has no odor and does not itch. The discharge is not much but it is there. When I told the doctor and the doctor ran a test they said it was nothing and that it was normal because of the hormones in the birth control method. I'm confused. What can I use to clear that up? It's been like this for 10yrs. When I stopped the Depo it went away. When I started again after a year of having a break from it, there it was again. I had a yeast infection both times when I was pregnant with my children and was treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics make me itch. I know you speak against Rx birth control methods, but when I came off for that year I bled so heavy (22 days) that I decided to go back on. I am 40 yrs. old with Hypertension (HTN). What should I do?

    A:

    Personally, I'd leave the drugs alone which have caused you great harm. Detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and after cleansing your body, start using the Herbal Contraceptive formula. Clearly the Depo is your problem!
