[YEA] 07/22/2012: Wy from Detroit, Mi: "I had a very severe yeast infection after taking antibiotics for a UTI which I believe came from a hot tub. I took a Diflucan after trying Monistat 1 day, it (monistat) did nothing for my infection as far as pain and itching... So, while..."

Apple Cider Vinegar Cure for a Yeast Infection
Folk Cure Ingredients:
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) may burn a touch at first, but then it brings lasting relief. Wet a cotton pad, cloth, or cotton ball in an equal parts mixture of water and ACV. Apply it to the labia or any external skin where itching and irritation are occurring, and hold it in place for a few minutes. Generally, Earth Clinic doesn’t recommend douching, but many have found relief from internal symptoms by filling a douche with 2-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and warm water, or you can also soak a tampon in ACV for internal use as well.
[YEA] 07/28/2008: Katherine from Kenai, Alaska: "%uFEFF OMG! Thank you everyone! For 2 wks I have been itching and it was driving me nuts! Vagisil only worked moderately and didn't last long. I didn't have the organic variety of acv, only the reg heinz bottle but figured it was worth a shot. Why not eh? I soaked a rag in a glass of water and 1 tbsp of acv then applied it directly over my vagina (only the outer parts are infected) and shazaam!!! NO MORE ITCH! I also immediately drank 2 tsp of the stuff before this just to make sure it was in the system. I will continue with this rag soak until I can get into the tub tonight. What a blessing this page was to find."
[YEA] 06/28/2008: Christine from Montville, New Jersey: "For about two weeks I have had a terrible yeast infection plus UTI. I tried monistat powder and cream,it helped that day but after that it came back. Now Iam on vacation and I will not let this infection keep me from having fun. So my dad told me I can drink Apple cider vinegar mixed with alittle bit of water. What I did was drink 1 glass of this mixture and then I took one cup of vinegar poured it in warm water and took a bath in it.In a matter of about 15-20 minutes both the pain from UTI and the itching from the yeast infection was gone.(No Douching) Now Iam just drinking the cider and water for a couple more days just to make sure everything is cured."
[YEA] 06/18/2008: Sheila from Wicks, Arkansas: "Hi, I'm a diabetic, overweight, Had a hysterectomy, and do NOT do hormone replacement, have suffered from yeast infections on my skin, not in my vagina, ever since I had the Hysterectomy, i am 40 years old, I have been in so much pain, I was ready to go, throw myself overboard if I could find a boat. I went to (ask.com) typed in yeast infection it brought me to this web sight, and thank GOD IN HEAVEN, I tried 3 cups apple cider vinegar store bought and 2 cups idozied salt with half tub of water and soaked for 1 hour. While drinking a glass of water with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, it helped me so much, it is a true Miracle! By drinking the apple cider vinegar it has lowered my blood sugar by 20 points, which is great cause I run about 250, on my blood sugar count, I can't thank you all enough for sharing your stories, I know you have all been in much pain as I have but, you have helped me so much. THANKS AGAIN, and GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU! and May we all be HEALTHY once again."
[YEA] 01/07/2008: SJ from olive branch, mississippi: "I first wanted to say be careful when dabbing ACV undiluted on the pelvic area because it can cause an off balance PH in the vagina and you can end up with BV! But it really does work. As i was reading the testimonies of how quick it worked for others i recalled how quickly it worked for me. Just this saturday i had the discharge, itch and burning. After taking ACV before bed i woke up with minimal syptoms. I will continue to take it so that i don't have the infections any more and because the other nutritional benefits are remarkable!"
[NAY] 12/31/2007: Pam from Los Angeles, CA: "I wanted to share my experience with everyone with Yogurt for a yeast infection. I started getting a yeast infection so I searched online and found this wonderful site! I read all the different home remedies for a yeast infection. Immediatly I ran to my kitchen and took two teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar. It was night so I went to sleep, when I woke up in the morning I hadn't gotten any worse and I was feeling a little better. So I gave myself 2 1/2 teaspoons that morning and night and a shallow bath with 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar. Which worked wonders!! Stopped the itching.
But on the third day I was still feeling a little uncomfortable. SO I decided to go and buy fat free organic plain yogurt and a turkey baster. I laid on my back and inserted the yogurt with the turkey baster. I waited the recommended 20 minutes. But I did NOT feel the cool relief as everyone stated. After the 20 minutes I cleaned up (it was messy but not that bad. Have a lot of paper towels on hand) and took a shower. But as soon as I pushed the yogurt out. I immediatly started to itch WORST than ever! Both my outsides and insides were itching worst than they had to begin with!! It was horrible. This remedy DID NOT WORK AT ALL! I was pacing the floor when my boyfriend asked me what made it feel better to begin with. I told him a bath with Apple Cider Vinegar. So I ran into the bathroom and quickly jumped into a bath with 1/2 cup ACV. It was INSTANT relief! I also took in the cleaned out turkey baster and used it as a type of douche in the bath tub.
As soon as I did this the rest of the yogurt came out and I felt again, instant releif. I let that bath go down and ran another one with 1/2 cup of ACV. I set in the bath probably a total of 40 mins. This morning I feel a lot better but still have some discomfort. I will be going to the whole food store to see what I can buy to make all this go away. But use the yogurt at your own risk. It was new, I just bought it that day. And it was a nightmare experience! All I can say is THANK GOD for Apple Cider Vinegar!! It works wonders!"
[YEA] 08/04/2007: Ginnie from Jeffersonville, Indiana: "I was having problems with acid reflux, migraines, and yeast infections. For over a year now I have been taking 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar right before bed and I have not had problems since. The doctor was going to put me on medicine for my acid reflux, and since I started taking the acv, the medication is not needed."
[YEA] 08/01/2007: Keys from Fremont, CA: "I got this yeast infection a month ago right after my period. I started feeling itchy before my period and I believe period made it worse. It was itchy, burning and red. This was my first time and I went to see a doctor. She said its external and prescribed a cream that I applied for 7 days but didn't help. It spread internally and I went to see another gynec who confirmed that this was internal moderate Yeast infection. He gave me two pills to take 3 days apart. I took it, it cured my internal but I still had external infection. After a month I got tired and yesterday I was searching online for home remedies and came acrosss this site. I ran to a store and bought the following: Apple cider vinegar, Iodized sea salt, craneberry juice, Acidophilus, cotton balls and a yogurt with living culture. I drank one glass of craneberry juice, took one acidophiuls pill, drank 2table spoon ACV and a glass of water, ate one cup of yogurt and took a hot bath for 30 minute with 1 cup of ACV and 2 cups of iodized sea salt. Also at night drank another glass of ACV and water , took 2nd acidophilus tablet and damp some ACV/water on the affected vaginal area. Today morning i woke up and I felt amazing. Finally after a month my burning is gone and I can walk freely. My symptons are almost gone. I am going to continue doing this for couple of days. This is great !! Thanks to all of you who shared their experience."
[YEA] 06/16/2007: Chrissy from Akron, Ohio: "I get bacteria vaginitis like no other, or so I thought. So when my body started discharging in abnormal ways, I freaked out b/c it has never been like this before. I go to the doctor at least 3 times every 3 months for b.v. After doing some research I figured out it was a yeast infection. I didnt want to use the otc medicines b/c I have a sensitive body. I dont know how but I ran across this website and found the cure Apple cider vinegar. All I did was put about a 1/4 cup in warm bath water, and stayed in the tub for about 20 min. When I got out, I felt so much better, the itch (it was killing me) was gone and the discharged stopped. It is such a blessing to finally find something that got rid of this, and the natural way. I plan on doing this again tonight. I love this website, it is so amazing. Thanks!!!"
[YEA] 06/11/2007: Megan from Portland, Oregon: "I have chronic yeast infections (monthly, around my ovulation time). It bothers me to take the antibiotic treatment, since I know they can be harmful, and the over the counter vaginal creams burn me to the point that I believe I am allergic to them. The last time I took the antibiotic, it didn't even work, so I was thrilled to find this website. I tried the ACV treatment today and it went very well. I drank 2 tblsp of ACV in a tall glass of water, and I bathed in a hot bath with about a cup of the ACV in it. I didn't have a turkey baster, so I flushed with the cupping of my hand and tried to get the water in and out. Most symptoms were gone immediatly and I will repeat this tomorrow once or twice. So far, I am absolutely amazed at the results. I really appreciate this information you have shared. Note: I also cut all sugar and flour from my diet right now, to help, since I know the bacteria feeds on this."
[YEA] 04/12/2007: Vinny from Sharon, MA: "I recently had taken antibiotics for a sinus infection and ended up with a male yeast infection with severe external blistering and irritation. Found your website and read about acv for sinus and yeast. Not willing to go back on meds that caused this nasty thing I started on 2 tbsp organic acv and 1/4 tsp baking soda as internal and straight acv for external cleansing of blistered area .Did this 3 to 4 times daily. It burned for a few seconds but then all itching and burning stopped. In 4 days the blistering and irritation were gone and have not returned. Am still using acv to finish curing this sinus infection and other diabetes related problems also noticed better & easier digestion. Thanks for a great batch of info Highly recommend this site to all."Replies
01/20/2010: Heidi from Calgary, Alberta replies: "Just regarding your SINUS INFECTION - I always find inhaling the steamy fumes from a hot cup of water and ACV, that my sinus infections are cured within a day or two. Thanks for the post from a guys perspective on yeast infections. I'm worried I might have spread it to my husband (though he's showing no signs or symptoms) and that we're passing it back and forth to each other. Time for a couples ACV bath, how romantic..."
[NAY] 04/09/2007: Lisa from Dallas, TX: "I was so hoping that the ACV would work for me! I tried it with the baking soda, without the baking soda and finally figured out that it wasn't going to work, no matter how much I wanted it to. I'm doing the yogurt and acidopholous thing and have been for a few weeks. I'm going to step it up to more pills and yogurt a day and see if that helps. I'll keep you posted."
[YEA] 04/03/2007: Sherry from Dayton, OH: "I ran across this site while frantically seaching the web. Although I have had yeast infections before this one was horrible. I was in REAL pain. I ran to the health food store and bought Organic Apple Cider Vinegar which is unpasteraurized (do not use grocery store brand) The 8oz bottle was $2.59. I put 1/2 cup in a warm bath and soaked for 30 min. I feel so much better as I am writing this. I actually was having trouble concentrating before because of the pain. I am not sure if this is the cure as of yet but it has relieved my symptoms by at least 70% Thanks for all the great info."
[YEA] 04/02/2007: Kasey from Meridian, Idaho: "I tried drinking apple cider vinegar with apple juice and it fixed so many problems, like my circulation and bloating issues, but it did cause a yeast infection. One of you posted a warning about this, but I was wondering which brands do NOT cause yeast infections (preferably affordable brands). Thanks!!!"
[NAY] 03/23/2007: Dallas from Dallas, Texas: "Ok. After reviewing this website I was so excited about curing my self at home, and not waiting on a Dr. Visit as I usually do. Unfortunately, I have yeast or BV infections at least once every six months, (I guess I should be grateful according to some). Which I believe comes from my horrible eating habits and limited veggie intake. So once I read through each email I made a list and headed directly to the Health food store and my list included; acidophilus pills, ACV, plain no fat/no sugar yogurt, and pomegranate cranberry juice. I wanted to try each remedy at a time so I could actually see the results. So since ACV was highly recommended, I tried it first. I started of with a 2 tbsp of ACV in water, and chocked it down, which is a taste one must acquire. Later, I followed up with an ACV hot bath and douche. I did this for two days straight both morning and night and it only made my condition worse. A couple of days later, I tried the yogurt, which felt great at first, but it only covered-up the condition for about 4 hours. Since neither remedy gave immediate results, I went ahead and use my last prescribed treatment of Clindesse, which seems to be my only hope. Needless to say, I used the Clindesse on Wed, and the majority of my symptoms were gone by Wed. Night. Come Thursday evening I felt a slight discomfort and I douched with Hot water and Iodized salt (which was recommended in only (1) feedback response), clinching tightly to my faith (that I would not be harmed in anyway since this remedy had one recommendation). This morning, I feel great, all symptoms have disappeared and I feel normal again..In conclusion I tried a variety of remedies within these last five days, but Clindesse and a Iodized salt/warm water douche seem to do the trick. (I guess it works the same as if you would gargle with warm/salt water. PS. For what it's worth I have added acidophilus pills to my every day diet."
