3. Grapefruit Seed Extract
Another effective home remedy for yeast infections is grapefruit seed extract. This beneficial liquid is made from the seeds, pulp, and white membranes of the grapefruit. Many nutritionists recommend it for the treatment of a yeast infection because of it’s excellent antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
You can put 10 drops of the grape seed extract inside a cup of water and drink it. You should drink this dosage of grape seed extract 3 times each day for it to be effective. You can also take this home remedy in tablet form. Look for the 100-200mg and take it three times per day until you see your symptoms leaving.
4. Apple Cider Vinegar & Tea Tree Oil
Apple Cider Vinegar is also a great home remedy to take care of candida overgrowth thanks to the strong antibacterial and antifungal properties it possesses. To use the vinegar you will need to pour one cup of vinegar inside a warm bath and then soak in it with your legs apart for about 15 minutes. You can also use tea tree oil but you must dilute it with water before applying it to your vaginal area. If you apply tea tree oil without diluting it you will irritate your condition. Most common brands of tea tree oil has dilution directions on the product label you can use.
Finally, you can use the power of acidophilus to get rid of your infection naturally. Acidophilus can be described as a group of probiotic bacteria cultures that is found in typical foods that we eat like yogurt. When you bring these helpful cultures inside your body they will help to start rebalance your PH levels and get rid of the candida overgrowth causing the infection. One of the best and most popular ways to introduce these cultures into your body is to eat plain yogurt or applying the plain yogurt to the outside area of your vagina.
It’s very important to avoid flavored yogurts when treating your infection because they contain sugars that will actually help the yeast survive and become stronger. Go to your local grocery store and pick up some unflavored, unsweetened yogurt and eat it twice everyday until your symptoms start to leave. You can also take 6 acidophilus capsules orally and 3 capsules vaginally each day.
Along with using these effective home remedies for yeast infections there are a number of things you should try to avoid or limit in your everyday diet. Try to stay away from refined and simple sugars, wheat and rye, milk and cheese, potatoes, mushrooms, and alcoholic and caffeinated beverages. Adapting to a yeast infection diet will help do you a lot of good in balancing your internal system and getting the yeast under control.
