Mouth Thrush – How to Treat Mouth Thrush With Natural Remedies

Pain and tenderness in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, irritation of the gums – let’s face it mouth thrush can really be uncomfortable. The mouth is by nature so sensitive, so even the slightest problem in that area can cause a lot of suffering. Those tell-tales white patches of yeast overgrowth, or sometime tiny red bumps can often become chronic when not treated properly.

I know from individualized experience just how continual yeast cells can be. They’re highly adaptable tiny organisms, and they superior they get a foothold in your body, the harder they are to get rid of.

Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of them permanently. I’m going to explain to you why a lot of treatment approaches simply aren’t successful.

First of all, the pharmaceutical approach is toxic – a bit like taking a fungicide internally – so rather than restoring your body to health so you can fight off the yeast next time, it actually makes your body weaker and more vulnerable to yeast. This approach can also cause the yeast to become even more resilient and entrenched in your body.

Second, so many “home remedies” or natural remedies just aren’t adequate to really correct the problem. They often treat the yeast topically, and either they aren’t strong enough to knock it out or they knock it out temporarily – just like the drugs. However, I want to warn you a lot of favourite home remedies for mouth thrush aren’t totally innocuous either. For example, gentian violet – a favourite home cure for thrush – is linked to an increased risk of oral cancer over the long term.

There are two crucial steps that are required to cure mouth thrush naturally:

1. Kill the yeast with potent, but totally non-toxic antifungals.
2. Restore the underlying imbalance in the body so that the yeast doesn’t grow back – this is totally crucial.

Step #2 seems to be what’s missing for the vast majority of people and is the primary reason why so few people have success in getting rid of mouth thrush in a safe, healthy way.

Yeast is everywhere – so if you’re body wasn’t ready to combat it the first time, what will change the next time around? Nothing – unless you correct the underlying imbalance that granted the yeast to grow out of control in the first place.

Another important point to think about is that while mouth thrush might be the obvious yeast that you can see – it’s extremely likely that if you have mouth thrush it’s also growing in other parts of your body, only where you can’t see it.

Just as the yeast/thrush can cause pain, inflammation, etc. in your mouth, it can be insidiously attacking other parts of your body, causing you to have all kinds of health problems – or simply making existing health issues worse. This is another reason why it’s so important to cure the yeast overgrowth at the root.

Question: What could I give my 4 week old daughter for a sore mouth from thrush?
She has thrush and she fusses when she eats. I feel so bad for her but I don’t know what to do. I have been giving her Nystatin (sp?). She started taking it yesterday.

Is there anything that is innocuous to use for her poor mouth to numb it so she could consume better?

Anyone else deal with this before,what did you do?

    The yellow Nystatin Liquid is the very best thing for your baby’s thrush.
    Be patient. She has a nasty little yeast thing going on and it is going to take some time; but the medicine she is on will do it’s job and relieve that irritation soon, and that red rash will be all gone.
    Be sure to not miss any doses!
    Hoping she is all better very soon!

    I used infant powder probiotics. Any health food store would have it. Cleared up my baby’s thrush in less than a week and it is good for your baby’s GI tract. I mixed 1/4 tsp in with her bottle once a day. You can also make a paste with water and give it to her directly in her mouth.
