How To Get Rid Of A Yeast Infection - 4 Ways To Cure It Effectively

Posted on

Yeasts are eukaryotic microbes from the fungal group. The most common species of fungi that infect humans are Candida albicans. Candida is one of the yeasts of the genus, and albicans derived from a Latin word means 'white body'. That is because infections by Candida albicans, which is also called thrush, can be seen as a whitish plague in the mucous membranes of the body.

Vaginal candidiasis is quite common in women. Many women think that being too thorough clean can get rid of vaginal candidiasis. Well, this is not always true. There are bacteria in the vaginal tract that keeps the infection. These bacteria lactobacillus keep the vaginal pH in acidic medium. If this pH balance is interrupted, candida may start to grow. This condition occurs when women wash their vaginal tract very thoroughly. The alkaline pH of the soap will neutralize the acidic pH of the vagina in less acidic, leading in prone to infection by candidiasis. This also happens when women stay in the tub for a long time with soapy water. Soapy water can get into the vaginal tract as well.

There are many natural ways to treat the yeast infection, and these come from things that can be found in your home's kitchen. They are yogurt, garlic, apple cider vinegar and oregano oil.

1. Yoghurt

Yogurt is a delicious food and the natural enemy of yeast. To use it against candida, immerse a tampon in the yogurt and apply it to the vagina. Alternatively, the yogurt can be rubbed into the vaginal tract. Please make sure that you use the yogurt does not contain sugar, as it would worsen the condition of the yeast infection. This is because the candida feeds on sugar and will make them grow more.

2. Garlic

Garlic, besides being used in the kitchen, is also the enemy of yeast. It is very effective, just putting a dab of garlic into the vagina every few hours. Relieves itching immediately.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

This acetic acid is supposedly potential in curing many other conditions such as allergies, sinusitis, acne, high cholesterol, chronic fatigue, sore throat, arthritis, and gout. It can be taken orally or used externally. To use it against yeast infection, mix a cup of apple cider vinegar in your bath water and take a long bath in it. Do not apply undiluted apple cider vinegar directly into the vagina as it will cause the vagina to become inflamed. Please make sure you get the right vinegar, not the white vinegar that aggravates the infection.

4. Oregano oil

Oregano oil is a herb that has a potent anti-candidiasis effect. It contains an active ingredient, called carvacrol, which can cure yeast infection. Take it by mouth every day and make sure that you choose oregano oil with high-level carvacrol.

In conclusion, there are natural ways to treat yeast infections. By applying these methods, you can save money instead of buying medical treatments. I believe that natural products have many benefits to the human waiting to be discovered.
