Candida Yeast Infections Home Remedies. Cure Oral Thrush and Vaginal Candidiasis Naturally.

What is Oral Thrush?

Oral thrush is a fungal infection which appears as raised creamy spots on the lining of the mouth, lips, and throat. The Candida albicans fungus occurs naturally in the mouth and other moist, warm areas of the body, but if excessive growth is allowed to take place infection can result. This may occur if the bacteria that usually keep it in check are themselves under attack by antibiotics, or if the immune system is compromised for any other reason. Oral thrush is most common in the young and elderly, and in people who wear dentures. Women also appear to be more susceptible than men.

What is Candida Yeast Infection?

Candida is the name given to a specific condition when there is an overgrowth of the yeast Candida albicans in the body. This yeast is normally present in the body as a healthy microorganism of the intestinal tract, but when conditions are out of balance overgrowth can occur. The overgrowth can produce toxic byproducts that damage tissues and impact the immune system. This can cause oral thrush, which is an infection of the mouth and throat, and upset stomach. Fatigue, headaches, joint pain, weight gain, and depression are also associated with candida. The condition can develop from a variety of factors, including antibiotics use, diet, stress, or alcohol and drug use. Yeast Infection is also known as Candida (Scientific), Oral thrush and vaginal candidiasis (English), Khamir sankraman (Hindi/Urdu), Yist sansarg (Marathi), ist torru (Tamil), Jiaomu jun ganran (Chinese), infeccion por levaduras (Spanish), infeccao por fungos (Portuguese), Chatraka sankraman (Bengali), drozhzhevoy infektsii (Russian).

Home Remedies for Yeast Infection

  1. Curd + Tea Tree Oil: Mix two to three drops of Tea Tree Oil in a tablespoon of yogurt. Soak a tampon in the mixture. Insert the tampon at night for up to six nights. Care must be taken when using any plant extracts. They are extremely concentrated and even in small doses can cause harm.
  2. Yogurt: If there is a yeast infection, apply a little yogurt to the anal orifice, then wash the anus with water. Eat fresh live yogurt. Yogurt is very helpful to kill the infection. Apply plain, active-culture yogurt to the vagina and vulva two or three times a day.  Yogurt contains lactobacilli, which protect against yeast vaginitis. Despite a long folk tradition, clinical trials have not evaluated intravaginal yogurt used alone for women with recurrent yeast infections. Such use may have more potential value as a preventive rather than a treatment for an active yeast infection. Lactobacilli do, however, interfere with the ability of disease-causing bacteria to colonize the vagina.
  3. Citrus Fruits: Lemon seeds, like grapefruit seeds, are antiseptic, and can be taken crushed or chewed to treat candidiasis and other fungal problems. Lemon and lime juice stimulate the peristaltic action of your colon, increasing the efficiency of your digestive system. Grapefruit seed extract is found to be highly effective against different yeasts and molds. Please consult doctor for your dose. OR Lemon will help to soothe discomfort and encourage healing. Drink a cup of hot lemon and honey in water three times daily.
  4. Turmeric: Mix together turmeric 1/4 teaspoon, licorice 1/2 teaspoon and shardunika 1/4 teaspoon. Take this complete mixture of herbs 1 teaspoon, twice a day with warm water until your symptoms are gone.
  5. Homemade Mouthwash for Oral Thrush: Add a few drops of myrrh, tea tree, or lavender oil to a cup of boiled water and rinse the mouth several times daily to destroy fungal infection.
  6. Lapacho Bark: This is traditional south American remedy. Pau d’arco, which is also known as lapacho or taheebo, is thought to be specific for problems such as yeast infection and candidiasis applied to the skin or taken internally. The inner bark of the lapacho tree is believed to be the most effective part of the plant. For the treatment of yeast and other infections consult your doctor for capsulized powdered bark dosage.
  7. Stevia: Use stevia instead of sugar. The yeast causing candidiasis symptoms survive by consuming sugars found in the digestive tract. Avoiding sugar consumption removes this food source and starves candida yeast. Candida albicans is a type of yeast that naturally exists in the human digestive tract. A sudden spike in candida populations can trigger a condition called candidiasis. A natural remedy for candidiasis is to adopt an anti-candida diet to restore balance to the gut flora. Sugar alternatives such as stevia are an important part of this diet plan.
  8. Licorice Tea Douche: This DIY douche for vaginal yeast infection. If the yeast infection is vaginal, you will find it helpful to douche with licorice tea. Boil 1 tablespoon of licorice powder in 1 pint of water for 5 minutes. Cool, strain, and use that tea for the douche. You will notice the healing effect quickly.
  9. Olive Oil: Olive oil prevents yeast becoming fungus in the body, and should be drunk or used in cooking, as often as possible.
  10. Garlic: Rub raw garlic on to the affected areas, and incorporate plenty of raw garlic into your diet.

Tips to Avoid Yeast Infection

A condition that results when the flora of the intestinal tract is out of balance, candida can affect your ability to perform daily activities and your overall wellness.

  • Strictly avoid sugar, fermented food, and yeast containing bread.
  • The combination of warmth, wetness, and vulnerable skin promotes yeast infections. Yeast infections are particularly common even more so when a breastfeeding mother or her infant takes antibiotics. It often starts in the skin folds and spreads. Topical antifungal creams usually clear the problem. Get a diagnosis first. Bacteria can also infect the diaper area.
  • Maintain good bathroom hygiene; use unscented toilet paper and always wipe from front to back. don’t share towels and make sure yours dries completely between uses. in addition, when you swim or get sweaty, change into dry clothes as soon as you finish. yeast thrives in damp environments.
  • If you have diabetes, work with your health practitioner to control your blood sugar. When blood sugar is abnormally high, so is the sugar in vaginal secretions, which feeds the yeast. even if you don’t have diabetes, avoid sweetened beverages, alcoholic drinks (which contain carbohydrates), refined carbohydrates, and other sweets, which can promote the growth of yeast.
  • Chew fresh juniper berries to reduce inflammation and attack the Candida fungus.
