Yeast Infection

by | Hormonal Balance, Remedy

The following are often the cause of yeast infections: emotional stress, general physical weakness, poor diet, hormonal changes, vaginal irritations, excessive douching, birth control pills, hormone pills, stressful sex, antibiotics, sulfa drugs, and other medications.

  • Wear cotton underpants and avoid pantyhose
  • Avoid intercourse
  • Keep the area around the vulva dry
  • Meals should center around grains such as brown rice, millet and buckwheat, soups such as miso, chicken      and vegetable broths, and steamed vegetables (especially dark green leafy types).
  • Avoid red meat
  • Include lots of lemons and grapefruit in the diet, but avoid oranges.
  • Drink 8 oz of unsweetened cranberry juice. Unsweetened cranberries and juice help restore acidity to the vagina
  • Take probiotics daily containing L. Bifidus or Lactobacilli
  • With each meal take a tonic drink made by mixing one teaspoon apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon      honey in ¼ cup warm water.
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages      and sweets (except for the honey/vinegar water).

For Persistent Yeast Infection

  • Insert a garlic suppository every 3-5 hours. Repeat for 3-5 days until infection is gone.
  • When nothing else works, try boric acid suppositories or tea tree oil.
