So You Have A Yeast Infection...Top Three D.I.Y Remedies

Hey bunnies,

So you have a yeast infection. I can only imagine the pain, redness and swelling you feel. In this post I'm going to be sharing a few home remedies that actually work! The first and most popular is yogurt!

1.Yogurt, yogurt contains Lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that is found in healthy vaginas. Acidophilus kills yeast by producing hydrogen peroxide.

You can simply apply the PLAIN, UN-FLAVORED YOGURT WITH NO SUGAR ADDED and be double sure that it contains
live acidophilus cultures (available in natural foods stores and many supermarkets) directly to your vulva and gently inject some into the vagina.

The following tips are from the MSU blog
1.Put the yogurt in plastic tampon applicators and freeze them, and then you've got little yogurt-sicles to use next time you get a yeast infection.
2.Fill the fingers of latex gloves with yogurt and freeze them to make your yogurt -sicles.
3.use syringes (with no needle!) to squirt it up there.
Apply once or twice a day until at least a day after your symptoms clear up. Another possibility is to insert acidophilus pills from your local supermarket or health food store (look in the refrigerated section); check to make sure the capsule is made of something soft enough to melt inside you.
Also, some people think that you may be able to get some of the same effects by eating a lot of yogurt. But some people do use this method to try ward off yeast infections, and report good success. Also, if you are the parent of a young child with a yeast infection and don't want to try suppositories or strong drugs, this may be your best option.

2. Garlic, garlic contains natural anti-fungal substances that kill off yeast. To try it, find yourself a fresh clove of garlic and carefully peel all the papery skin off it. Next, make a little tampony thing by wrapping it in gauze or cheesecloth, tying the ends with un-waxed dental floss, and leaving a bit of string dangling so you'll be able to pull it out afterward. Now, believe it or not, insert it into your vagina. Don't worry about losing it up there, because of course it can't get through your cervix. Leave it in for several hours at a time, like overnight, and be sure to remove it in the morning. For early or mild infections, nighttime treatments may be enough; try several nights in a row, until one day after the symptoms disappear. If your infection is more severe, put a fresh clove in every morning and every night.

3. Cranberries, cranberries are often used in treating urinary tract infections, which apparently works because the berries contain substances that inhibit bacteria from clinging to the walls of your urinary tract. Cranberries also lower the pH in your urine, which may be useful in helping combat yeast infections. It's a pretty mild remedy, which might be useful if you think you may be coming down with a yeast infection; for more serious infections, it can be used in combination with other remedies.

Other remedies include but are not limited to
Tee Tree Oil
Potassium Sorbate
Boric Acid

In closing, to help prevent a yeast infection, eat a lot of yogurt and drink a lot of cranberry juice.
