Frequently you will just have to get the over the counter monistat. Don’t let it get too bad, because that can lead to excessive itchiness and that leads to scratching which will make micro tears in your tissue and prolong the infection, maybe even causing a secondary infection.

    For starters stop eating anything that has sugar in it — it feeds Candida. Read product labels because it’s hidden in plenty of products. Stop eating anything with wheat in it. Ditto.
    Find a homeopathic doctor through your local association who can cure the cause of your yeast infection so that it doesn’t keep coming back to haunt you.

    Assuming you are talking about vaginal yeast infection, you could try Natural LIVE yogurt.The key is not the yogurt itself but the bacteria, lactobacillus acidophilus, in the yogurt. This helps the body maintain, or regain, its natural pH level. The yogurt needs to be introduced into the vagina with a tampon or syringe (minus the needle!)

    Failing that, an anti-yeast preparation like Canesten would be a rational choice. If it does not clear up then you must see your GP so he can take a swab.

    Yeast infection is usually caused by over use of antibiotics in the past and low level of all bacteria. Antibiotics kill the illness causing bacteria but it also kills the good, essential bacteria needed in the body to keep it balanced. This good bacteria needs to be replenished by using flora protect PROBIOTICS. You need to use it for few weeks, daily until this bacteria is rebuild. I would recommend Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support made by Renew Life or any other multi bacteria in a capsule. The more different kind of bacteria in the pill, the better. It is a good idea to maintain the level of the good bacteria by using probiotics every so often after you build it up. Eat yogurt and food rich in fiber, this feeds this bacteria. Hope this tip helps you,

    Hey Passion,
    You need plain yogurt, it has bacteria that will eat up the yeast infection in minutes. You need to insert about a tea spoonful ‘there’ and wait. It will be all good in no time.

    Good luck!

    You actually can take the short cut and get an over the counter prescription for caneesten or something like this but baths aren’t always the main contributor. Email me and I will send you a protocol for you, too get long term ridding of yeast. z.hoyte2xtra.co.nz it’s what I use in my clinic.

    For years some doctors have advised women to insert live yogurt into the vagina to introduce Lactobacillus acidophilus bacterium and also produce a more acidic environment to help fight infection. Sometimes, freeze-dried Lactobacillus acidophilus bacterium containing pessary is inserted into the vagina for even more pronounced results. Continue this for an extra day after you gat cured.

    As correct pH level is required in the vagina to check fungus growth, using vinegar solution for douching or warm hip-bath is recommended as vinegar had approximately the same pH level as that of vagina (pH level of 4.5). For douching, mix 4 teaspoon of vinegar in ½ a liter of water. The hip-bath or sitz bath requires ½ cup each of vinegar and common salt in around 2-2 ½ liters of lukewarm water filled in a shallow tub. Sit with your knees open in this water. This will do the job of douching in a much more cleaner fashion.

    There are effective natural cures for yeast infections available that can help to soothe the discomfort and frustration of a yeast infection and other symtoms of thrush, resolving the infection without the use of prescriptions and OTC drugs. They contain ingredients such as Cymbopogon citratus (Lemon grass), Calendula officinalis, and Tabebuia impetiginosa (Pau d’arco bark). All have antibacterial and antifungal properties that effectively remove toxins and help to support the overall natural maintenance systems in the body.

    Natural treatment for vaginal thrush has proven to be effective as well for relieving the pain and discomfort of candidiasis and for controlling candida overgrowth. There are many herbs with anti-fungal properties which may be used topically or internally to deal with the problem.

    Apart from treating the fungal overgrowth itself, herbal remedies can also help to improve immune system strength, thereby helping to protect the body against future attacks. Herbal and homeopathic treatments are not only safe and effective to use, but also non-addictive without any side effects.
