Are you suffering from an uncomfortable and embarrassing problem? Why should you suffer any longer when you can naturally cure yeast infections with a few cheap items from the grocery store? Sure, there are a ton of prescription medications on the market, but sometimes they don’t work and end up making things worse by overly upsetting the balance of your vagina in an attempt to kill yeast. This can result in bacterial vaginosis, leading to an unpleasant odor.
Typical yeast infection treatments are usually applied in cream form to the infected areas. If you’re very sensitive, this can lead to burning, itching and discomfort. For these reasons, many people prefer to naturally cure yeast infections with internal treatments.
Here are three natural remedies you can try out for yourself:
1. Garlic out! Garlic is a great yeast killer. Eat more garlic (preferably raw) to keep yeast levels in your body balanced. If you want to get rid of your yeast infection fast, you can wrap a peeled garlic clove in something like cheesecloth or gauze, and insert into your vagina (you might need to moisten it first). Do this for a few hours 2-3 times a day. In one day it’s very likely that you’ll notice your yeast infection is gone.
2. Supplement with virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is not only healthy and delicious, it is also great for killing excess yeast. It contains caprylic acid, which prevents too much yeast from growing in the body and combats the yeast infection you already have. Simply take two tablespoons everyday – it’s tasty enough to stand on it’s own, and helps to get rid of yeast infections fast. Like garlic, you can also put some right into your vagina. In fact, a good idea would be to moisten the gauze/cheesecloth with the coconut oil, to get both of these yeast killers to come in contact with the affected area at the same time.
3. Stop eating sugar and simple carbs!!! These are the types of foods that allow the yeast to thrive. Cut it out (or as much out as you can) and it will make it harder for the excess yeast to grow back.
Before you schedule an appointment with your doctor, you may want to try a combination of the techniques above to help your body naturally cure yeast infections as long as you’re sure that what you’re suffering from is indeed a yeast infection. It will only cost you a few dollars and a little bit of time. Naturally, if you find that these natural yeast infection remedies don’t work for you or you’re not comfortable using them, consult your physician ASAP.
