Ladies, if you have ever had a vaginal yeast infection, then you know how irritating they can be. The burning and that maddening itch that just doesn’t seem to stop! Vaginal yeast infections are almost always a symptom of systemic yeast. If you use a natural cure and it works but then you have this issue again fairly quickly, you need to consider ridding your entire body of Candida overgrowth using herbs and eating correctly.

Candida needs to be dealt with where it starts; in your intestinal tract. Cut down (or cut it out entirely) on sugar. Eat more probiotics and natural dairy products that contain healthy bacteria called lactobacillus.

By the way, some people misunderstand the “eat more yogurt” advice to prevent vaginal yeast infections and some women have actually been inserting yogurt into the vagina. This is a mistake. First, most store bought yogurt doesn’t contain enough bacteria to kill the yeast and the pasteurized milk in these products actually feed the yeast infection. Just say NO to this remedy.

Take a look at 8 home remedies that DO work. Some of these are messy, some are quite soothing, while others are just plain uncomfortable, but the bottom line here is that they will work.


1.  Colloidal Silver

Although colloidal silver does kill yeast on contact, it’s probably one of the weaker options. The good news with this is that it doesn’t burn or sting. Make a douche using 8 ounces of water and 1 tablespoon of colloidal silver. Use this daily until the problem is resolved but be aware that it might take a week or more before this completely eliminated. Read more about colloidal silver as antifungal miracle.

2. Tea Tree Oil

Many women swear by this method. Tea tree oil can be used in a douche by mixing about 8 ounces of water to 20 drops of tea tree oil. Another method is to soak a tampon in tea tree oil or mix some tea tree oil with coconut oil and coat the tampon with this mixture.
