Vaginitis, or yeast infection, is a painful condition that many women experience at some point. The Global Healing Center has assembled some of the most common natural remedies for yeast infections. Here are a few of them:
If you are taking any form of antibiotic, the likelihood of a yeast infection is increased. Probiotic foods help restore the natural gut flora that prevents fungal infections.
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Douche
A douching made from apple cider vinegar can soothe a yeast infection. Try 3 tablespoons of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in 1 quart of water.
Garlic has natural anti-fungal properties. Try eating several fresh garlic cloves on a daily basis.
Say NO to Harsh “Feminine” Products
Most of these are too harsh, and strip off natural protective oils. Use organic hygiene products, if necessary.
Organic Cranberry Juice
You can drink the juice, unsweetened, to help restore healthy pH balance in the vagina.
Organic Plain Yogurt
Yogurt can be used topically and vaginally to reduce a yeast infection. Make sure yogurt has no added sugars, fruit or other ingredients.
Wear Loose Clothing
Wearing loose-fitting clothing and underwear keeps oxygen moving, and helps prevent the growth of fungus.
