Yes. Plain GREEK yogurt. Must be plain and must be greek. It is a tiny bitter. Eat a small container of it 3 times a day and do not add sugar, fruit or honey. If you must pair it with something, consume it with granola. Drink a lot of water and stay away from sugar. Sugar breeds yeast. Do this for a week and you should feel relief. Also, fresh garlic chopped in a salad is beneficial as well as AZO pills for yeast infections. You can purchase this over the counter at any drug store. It is Homeopathic and natural.

Wear cotton undies, and shower often rinsing with cool water only. No soap there, unless it is plain dove. Air out your vagina at night.

    Plain pro-biotic yoghurt – there’s nothing in Greek yoghurt that will help, the reason pro-biotic yoghurt helps is because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that creates hydrogen peroxide that kills yeast. There’s argument about whether eating it helps as it goes through digestive system and not via the vagina, but I know when I feel ill my vaginal health is effected and fact is bacteria from your anus will linger round your vagina – unpleasant, but they are the facts – so better it be healthy bacteria! You may prefer to take acidophilus tablets.

    Another edible solution is drinking either cranberry or blueberry juice (or taking cranberry tablets), these help by effecting the pH of your urine – the theory here is that as the urine passes over your vulva it may be of some help in fighting off the yeast beasties, or at least ease some discomfort.

    Plain pro-biotic yoghurt is best applied directly to your genitals, you can plaster it onto your vulva before bed, you can fill a syringe to insert into your vagina, or personally I recommend freezing in ice cube trays as an easy way to insert and cooling too. Do this overnight, wear a CLOTH pad or old underwear to bed then wash with water in the morning – commercial pads are a major cause of such infections so they’re a no-no, and obviously anything chemical near your vagina like soap is a no-no.

    Garlic – not great smelling, but works well as it’s a natural anti-fungal, you do literally take a garlic clove, peel and insert. Be careful not to score the clove as it may sting, and you may want to tie some clean thread around it so it’s easier to remove.

    Tea tree oil – you can insert a few drops into your vagina and around your vulva, but to some women this is too uncomfortable, so instead try having a jug near the toilet to fill with water and add a few drops then wash it over your genitals when you go to the toilet…no reason to do it specifically then, it’s just a handy time to do it. Same can be done with a mix of 1 tablespoon potassium sorbate to a cup of water, or 1 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, or liter of water and 2 tablespoons of white or cidar vinegar, or Juice of half a lemon, or 1 teaspoon vitamin C.

    Gentian violet – this stuff is cool, it turns your snatch purple which is sort of freaky, it’s a very old natural anti-fungal, you plaster it onto your genitals and that’s that…well, you have to wear old underwear and use old sheets when you sleep as it will stain anything it comes into contact with. Use it once or twice a day for a few days.

    Another old one is Boric Acid – yes it sounds scary, but it’s safe, you just load up about 600 mg into a couple of gel capsules then insert them into your vagina where your body heat will desolve the capsules and the boric acid will kill off the yeast.

    I say Greek Yogurt as well. Why? Because most Greek yogurt contains all the cultures needed to calm the yeast. It is potent and healthier than most yogurts which contain sugar.

    Try Oikos brand, it has six healthy cultures. http://www.stonyfield.com/organic_living/wellness_and_nutrition/six_live_cultures_count_em/index.jsp

    Here are some natural remedies:

    Check out the site below for tons of info on this nasty fungus.

    You will literally be amazed by how many options are available if you’re looking for a home remedy for thrush. We’ve taken the time to compile some of the most effective natural remedies for thrush so that you can cure your thrush safely from the comfort of your home. So, without further ado, here are some of the best thrush remedies around.
    Yogurt
    An all natural and plain probiotic yogurt is by far the best home remedy for thrush. This safe and effective way to treat thrush can be used by men, women, children, and babies to treat thrush of the mouth, the skin, and the genitals. It should be consumed regularly to help replenish the good bacteria that your digestive system needs to keep yeast under control. And, it can be applied to the skin to soothe and heal thrush so that you can get relief from the uncomfortable symptoms. Holding in a mouthful of the yogurt is all you need to do to treat thrush of the mouth.

    Grapefruit Essence and Stevia Extract
    By mixing 10 drops of grapefruit essence with 10 drops of Stevia extract, you have a home remedy for thrush that is safe enough to apply to even a baby’s skin. Repeat this 3 or 4 times each and every day until the thrush disappears for best results.

    Tea Tree Oil
    Tea tree oil contains natural antifungal properties that can be used to treat thrush. It may prove too strong for some, so diluting it with some water before applying it to the affected area may be necessary to avoid stinging or discomfort.

    Acidophilus
    Adding acidophilus powder or capsules to your daily diet is not only a good home remedy for thrush but it can also help you prevent further overgrowths of the fungus that causes thrush. As well, applying the powder right to the affected area can also help speed up your recovery.

    Dietary Changes
    Cutting down on sugars and carbohydrates has been proven to be of great benefit for those suffering from thrush. Most importantly, avoid foods that contain high levels of yeast, such as breads, cakes, beer, and barely. Cutting out sugar is also important since sugar feeds the yeast and can cause thrush to worsen.

    Garlic
    Garlic—fresh and oil—has been used for many centuries as a home remedy for thrush. Consuming fresh garlic or garlic oil every day is a great way to treat thrush and help prevent further infections from yeast. And, fresh garlic (crushed) and garlic oil can be applied directly to the affected area. Vaginal thrush can be treated by taking a clove of garlic and inserting it into the vagina like a suppository and leaving it in for a few hours each day. Wrap it in cheese cloth or gauze, or dip it into olive oil before inserting as the oil that is released from a fresh clove of garlic is quite concentrated and can cause a little bit of stinging in some cases.
