Candida Albicans Yeast Infection Treatment

Natural cure for candida yeast infection

The medical condition known as yeast infection is said to touch approximately 75% of all women at some time. Although there may be relief for vaginal yeast infection from prescription drugs, a significant number of women would rather treat their infection with a natural treatment or homemade cure for a candida overgrowth. There is also a third, more middle ground approach, which would be an over the counter cure for yeast infection.

This article, however, is going to focus on natural cures or treatments that are based around ordinary household products or natural herbal ingredients, starting with yogurt.

We have heard from several reliable sources that, although yogurt can be very beneficial in assisting the body to return to its natural balance, it is more effective when used in conjunction with an additional natural or herbal treatment. Yes, you should eat two cups (500 ml) of live yogurt per day, and also douche with plain yogurt, but for even faster relief, add one or two capsules of goldenseal to warm water and use that as a douche, followed by a second douche with plain yogurt.  Cranberry juice also seems to help speed up recovery, so try drinking a glass of good, strong cranberry juice with a meal, as well as eating that yogurt to help clear up a yeast infection naturally.

Baking soda is another fine home remedy for a yeast infection. For both internal and external infections, use about a half of a cup of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) added to warm bath water and, for at least 15 minutes or more, soak in it two times daily. You only need to have the bathtub filled up enough so the affected areas can be soaked.

Linda Allen, in her book "Yeast Infection No More" also gives a lot of good information about natural, holistic, herbal and homemade cures for yeast infections.
