Thrush or yeast infections can be dealt with by a variety of forms, including creams, suppositories, antibiotics and other medication. However Candida yeast will build up resistance to many of these, so natural products are recommended.
Some natural products you can use are...
Garlic is one of the most powerful natural products for combating yeast. The Candida cannot build up a resistance and it provides fast relief.
Insert whole garlic cloves into the vagina, just remember to replace it every few hours. If the clove has a nick or cut it may burn, so you can wrap it in cheese cloth.
You can also use it on skin yeast infections by crushing it up and making a gauze, or spreading it over the area for a time. This can burn a bit though, and irritate the site of the infection.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is very strong and can burn, so mixing it with water or a tea solution is often recommended. Some people add a cup to the bath water, and soak for awhile.
It is important to note that you can only use apple cider vinegar and not white, brown or bleached vinegar, as these actually promote the infection.
This is not as effective for vaginal infections as garlic, as you would have to water it down considerably, and it will not stay inside like garlic.
However it is extremely effective on skin infections, especially if you can soak it for long periods of time, and use a strong solution.
Plain Cultured Yogurt
Yogurt is effective due to the good live bacteria that fights off the yeast infection. However it is also important to only use plain yogurt, and not any kind of sweetened yogurt as the sugar will feed the yeast.
Yogurt can be used internally and externally.
You can dip a tampon in the yogurt to use internally, and spread it over the site for external infections. However if left too long the moisture can irritate the infection further.
These thrush treatments are great topical solutions for getting fast results and relief.
However they do not deal with the internal Candida overgrowth fueling the infection, in order to deal with this you need to undertake a complete Candida Cleanse.
