Trichomoniasis Remedies

| Modified on Jan 25, 2023

While a variety of sexually transmitted infections are common, trichomoniasis is categorized by specific symptoms and characteristics. Treating trichomoniasis first requires an accurate diagnosis. Following diagnosis, however, several natural supplements can be used to help treat and eliminate the condition.

What is Trichomoniasis?

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection that is characterized by a foul-smelling vaginal discharge, genital itching and painful urination in women. Additional symptoms in women include the appearance of a white to yellow or green discharge, genital redness and inflammation and painful intercourse. The condition typically causes no symptoms in men; however, some men experience painful urination.

Also called trich, the condition is caused by a one-celled protozoan that travels between individuals during sexual intercourse. The infection may manifest anywhere from 5 to 28 days after exposure.

Natural Remedies for Trich

Eliminating infection and relieving pain are the main focus of treatments for trichomoniasis and other sexually transmitted diseases. Natural remedies are able to effectively achieve these results and eliminate the condition. Hydrogen peroxide, turmeric and tea tree oil are among the most effective treatments for trich.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a natural germicidal agent composed of water and oxygen. It functions to kill disease by oxidation, making it one of the most effective natural sanitizers. Used as a douche or mild cleansing agent, hydrogen peroxide eliminates infection associated with the condition.


Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. The curcumin in turmeric supports effective circulation, which reduces inflammation and treats infection. Turmeric also helps to filter the blood to remove any infection or toxic substances in the body.

Tea Tree Oil

As both an antiseptic and antifungal agent, tea tree oil is particularly effective for treating trichomoniasis. The natural chemicals in tea tree oil kill bacteria and fungus and reduce inflammation. The oil should be applied to the affected area rather than ingested orally.

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease that can affect both men and women. If left untreated the condition can become very painful and may contribute to more serious complications. Several natural remedies, however, effectively treat the condition and prevent further progression of the condition.

If you have trich, you are not supposed to have sex at all until you are completely finished with your meds.

I had been raped in November and then at the end of the month I got tested at my Obgyn. The results came back that I tested positive for chlamydia and trich so she gave me more than one prescription to take all at once with food the prescriptions were metronidazole 500 and azythromicin so a couple weeks later I went back for a follow up and I tested positive for trich again but the other std was gone so she prescribed me tinidazole and I decided to go to the std clinic five weeks afterwards and when I went they told me I had no stds or infections then the day after I went there I had my follow up appointment at the Obgyn, so she calls me today and tells me that im still testing positive for trich, but somebody help me out here, how is it that I tested negative at the VD clinic and now she just prescribed me a high dose of tindamax, I need somebody's opinion, I don't know what to do or who to believe can anyone relate, I have been single and abstinence for 3 months.

First thing to do is go to , yet, another clinic. If this one says negative on your tests then perhaps your regular doctor is inept or worse. I would surely report the doctor with evidence at hand. I reported a dentist who said I had 15 cavities - this was 30 years ago. I had NONE. These kinds of people need to be reported. Good luck!

I went to 3 different Dr.s four times I had not had sex in months and honestly have no desire to have sex at this point. I finally got rid of trich but no thanks to two different prescriptions.. both of which were mentioned above.. I did research and decided to try the natural way.. well one of the many natural cures.. I used tea tree oil.. it burned for about 20 minutes after I used it.. (a fourth of tea tre oil and three fourths water) in douche..was the only method that cured trich for me.. what an annoying std.. mb they need to think of an alternative medicine


How long did you have to use tea tree for as days or weeks and was it once a day or two or three times a day? I had a bad allergic reaction to the above meds and it's left me with this bad infection for a few years now. I tried a few things and yet I keep coming up positive.

I don't know whether or not you have looked into this, but there is another vaginal infection that plagues many women. It is called Trichomoniasis, or Trich for short. It is more prevelant than Bacterial Vaginosis. And much more dangerous. Can you include that in your remedies? Maybe someone out there has a remedy for it. It is another infection that doctors prescribe Flagyl for and the infection usually comes right back.

I can really relate to what Bobbie had to say about Trichomoniasis. I have been diagnosed with this several times and receive the same treatment (Flagyl). It doesn't work and my partner was treated too. I want to know if the medication is suppose to kill the parasite or just relieve the symptoms. I want to know a treatment to get this parasite out of my body, permanently!!!

I have not tried this herbal remedy yet (due to lack of $, even though its not that expensive) but searched herbs articles for vaginal odors and discharges to find that poor diet leads to excessive acidosis in the body which produces protective mucous.

my wife contracted BV 3 times in one year, since I am a diabetic I thought it was jock itch which is the male version of bv which was the problem. I went to the doctor and got treated and so did she and it still came back to her. The drugs her ob gyn prescribed were flagyl, metrodinazole, and clindamycin and they worked for a short period of time only. Even when using condems she still got her symptons back. Turns out we both might have an std called Trichomoniasis or trich a very common std which can be contracted very easily. do your reserch on this and do not be embarresed to see your obgyn or uroligist and explain she has now been given Tinidazole lets see how this works, you need to be stern with your docter and try to get a two step treatment if possible. hope this helps.

I was diagnosed with Trich for the first time probably 10 years ago and for 3 years my pap kept coming back with Trich. I was treated each time with Flagyl however when I stopped eating white bread, lots of sweets and carbs I was not diagnosed again until recently. I have not been eating like I should. I believe that our bodies have a hard time processing certain foods and there are certain parasites in some bad carbs that are very harmful to our bodies. I am now looking for a holistic remedy to cure this.

Hi Wanda,

I'm a pharmacologist and I made a web site dedicated to prozoan infections as they are responsible for many chronic diseases like IBS, Crohns disease as well as other mental issues like Depression...etc

All what I know about Trich is that it requires a 2 G of Flagyl once a day. But in your case it seems that you are carying a resistant strain to Flagyl so You can try Tinidazole 2g.

There is so many information gathered about protozoan infection. My goal is to help people including myself to find a cure for IBS caused by protozoan infection as the medical community are not providing us with any real help except the same song that it's a delusional thoughts ect.

Best health.

Re: Trich. Even most OMDs don't know this: Pu-Erh tea is a powerful antibacterial. A test I ran at home showed it to be slightly superior to Clorox. Avoid tea bags. Buy it in bulk at larger Asian groceries. Three swallows of strong tea every 4 hours or as needed. Others that helped: Chinese patent formulas- Long Dan, Gui Pi Wan, Nu Ke Ba Zen Wan. Black walnut hulls, powdered. Digital mhz Zapper using the bacterial STD setting (with stabilized liquid oxygen). Raise pH. Avoid strong acid forming food: meat, sugar, vinegar, tomatoes, potatoes.

Here's a remedy for bacterial infections that I can't recommend because it is illegal: Bacteria need to create moisture in order to propagate. Take no fluid for 4 hours. Smoke marijuana to the point of 'dry mouth'. Take no fluid for 24 more hours. Food is optional but total fasting improves your chances. Repeat as needed.

What didn't help: Echinacea, goldenseal, garlic, turmeric, coptis, Flagyl, Cipro, Zithro, Doxycycline. NACLO is a possibility but can be hard to build up to the 20 drop recommended dosage without causing diarrhea.

I have been tested many times, always with negative results. Trich can be a difficult diagnosis in a man. I read it as trich by process of elimination. I am an ND with 15 years of study in various Chinese pharmacies.

Thanks for that website Tommy from North York, When you suggest a treatment for Trichomoniasis, like Tinidazole, is it ok to use generic tinidazole, ? that's the first question, and secondly, the online information states for treatment, oral Tinidazole, 2g as a single dose, would you have any idea if one hit will do the job, or if a person has this affliction for a long time, would it be better to say take the 2 g's a day for 5 days, to ensure success?

Herbal Treatment

I thought I'd add my proverbial 2-cents... I have been battling trichomoniasis for several months now. It has been misdiagnosed as UTI at first and treated (repeatedly) with Ciprofloxacin which helped for "entire 5 minutes" wrecked havoc with my body. I attributed the itch and discharge that inevitably followed to "antibiotic damage" and would throw Monistat on it, which only helped until the next period. After a few miserable cycles and some internet research I went back to the doctor who, unsurprisingly so, finally diagnosed trichomoniasis. I was adamant not to take any more antibiotics, especially after all I've heard about Flagyl and Tindamax and several hours of research later I Googled this wonderful book, which I highly recommend to all fellow sufferers: "Women's Herbs, Women's Health" by Christopher Hobbs & Kathi Keville. It offers tones of helpful, practical advice on home-made douches and salves/suppositories, herbal tinctures, teas, supplements, diet, etc. for the whole list of complaints involving "trouble down below" and ranging from hormonal imbalances/PMS, through all kinds of STDs, to menopause and osteoporosis.

One thing to mention re: fighting trich is that the right recommended approach is to treat it internally as well as externally (topically), which for me involved a course of Berberine Sulfate tablets (2 x 200mg twice per day) for 2 weeks, followed by a general anti-parasite preparation (I chose Para-Gard) and strict no-sugar/low carb diet with daily probiotics, fresh garlic, oregano oil capsules and cranberry pills. Externally - twice daily douches with goldenseal followed by 2 x day home-made suppository (organic extra virgin coconut oil with tea tree, cinnamon, lavender, thyme and rosemary essential oils) and a garlic clove suppository to boot. It sounds like a lot of work and hassle, but watching the diet was honestly at times harder than all the douches and messy suppositories combined. A month later I am symptom-free. Now waiting to see the good doctor and take the test to confirm.

Good luck to you, do read the book, I would recommend it any woman whether symptomatic or not.

I was horrified after discovering that I had contracted trich from my boyfriend (now ex). I was very irritated down there and noticed a strange smell which seemed stronger at different times of the month. I went straight to earth clinic and was disheartened by so many people saying they had tried many remedies to no avail. For many weeks, I tried to ignore the problem hoping my body would eventually fix it.... Of course, that didn't happen. Then I tried douching with H2o2, and it helped with the smell for a few days but then came back. I remembered a friend of mine telling me that people in India use Turmeric for many ailments, as it has powerful anti viral/bacterial properties. Now, I tried several things for about 3-5 days so I'm not sure if it was one thing or the combination that did it for me. But this is what I did:

For 3 days I used a tampon lightly sprayed with H202 and gently press turmeric powder all over the tampon. Insert, and leave in for about 2 hours. (do this once a day). It does burn a bit, so be mentally prepared :-)

I also did a couple of douches with H202 after the 3 days. Furthermore, for about 5 days, I took Golden seal and echinacea tablets, and probiotics. It has been over a month since I have done this and THANK GOD, I no longer feel I have any irritation or smell. Blessings.

This is my second time getting infected with trichomonas since my partner tested negative but was in fact a false negative.. this must be harder to detect in men which is insane because we are in 2023 ... after struggling to get rid of it with meds the last time, THIS has cleared me UP! I have purchased the horbaach goldenseal & echinacea capsules from amazon like you recommended and also took the spring valley oil of oregano capsules from walmart . I took 2 goldenseal & echinacea blend capsules twice a day and took 2 oregano oil capsules once a day for a whole week (although it recommends just one) along with boric acid suppositories from this website it has calendula extract and neem which helps fight off infections. I am antibiotic resistant and was on metro for a week and then tinidazole for 2 weeks to get rid of it. very expensive treatment and these supplements/suppositories were a fraction of the cost and got rid of the infection in only one week. took me by SHOCK! When I initially got it I had it for months thinking it was reoccurring BV wondering why it wasn't going away so trust me I know the struggle, this solved my issue and I finally can feel like ME again! Hope this helps anybody that is antibiotic resistant like I am, cannot afford treatment, or wants to go the natural route

Best of luck! I know this sh*t SUCKS!

Remember everyone to avoid reinfection of any and all parasitic, yeast, or bacterial infections especially after a run of antibiotics! No one tells you but you must replace the natural floura of natural and healthy good bacteria! If you want to keep it gone you must replace the good bacteria, that is found in organic, unflavoured, unsugared yogurt. I don't like yogurt so I take some refrigerated Acidophillius-Bifidus, available at your health food store, only the refrigerated kind works. You will decrease your chances of reinfection Greatly if you take acidophilus or eat organic yogurt daily. Hope this helps!

Bacterial Vaginosis/Trichomoniasis

Everyone, I just found out that bacterial vaginosis or leuchorrea are often misdiagnoses for a parasitic infection called trichomoniasis.

After being diagnosed with leuchorrea and being told to take a dose of 10 billion probiotics daily (this didn't work, but helped a little) I went to another doctor and was told that I had BV. I was then prescribed an intra-vaginal gel which worked for probably less than a week before symptoms returned. I have been investigating ever since (3 years). I have taken everything I can get my hands on.

Garlic helps. Folic acid helps only slightly (be careful here... Large amounts of folic acid taken daily can be dangerous if you do not take other B vitamins with it!)

I have FINALLY found something that seems to be working. Because I cannot use the product name, I'm going to give you a list of what is in it. If you pull this up on an internet search you should find the product. This is a cleanse, and I found relief from symptoms almost entirely after 6 days. I am on this formula now and will continue until my bottles are gone. I wish you all the best. I know this is horrible. YOU CAN FIND THIS PRODUCT AT MOST HEALTH FOOD STORES and if they do not have it ask them to order it for you. I work in one so I know.

Ingredients in Cleanse:


the good thing about this cleanse, is that coptis (and many other ingredients in it) has been proven to help cure bv, leuchorrea, trichomoniasis and yeast. So no matter what your condition is, you will probably benefit here and it may just cure you.

Good luck everyone.

ps: wash your underwear, towels and washcloths (anything that touches the area) with bleach/detergent. Trichomoniasis can live outside of the body and will likely spread to others using your towels etc. Also, please have your partner take this cleanse as well, as they are likely infected if your fluids have been mixing during intercourse. No one wants to talk about this condition, but it is essential to your relationship that you let your partner know what is going on. Be honest and open. Drink lots of water.

Because(as I'm sure you know) this is a nightmare! Thanks you! :)

I have been diagnosed with trich 5 months ago and I took one dose metrozadiole, which took the feeling of trich away immediately, however since then my vag has never felt normal after sex. Either my partner still has it or the antibiotics didnt treat the problem completely. I've just applied a home made balm that I made from organic virgin coconut oil and a few drops of tea tree oil, be careful with how much you put of the tee tree though, as it can burn, put small amount first, see how it feels. I put half a teaspoon of coconut oil with 2 drops of tea tree oil, I've applied this on the labia which feels swollen and just a bit on the inside, but not all the way up. I'm feeling a lot better already actually. I'm eating live yogurt as well, as garlic tablets, echinacea, and I want to try taking some apple cider vinegar as well. But this tea tree balm is helping a lot so far, fingers crossed I can get rid of this trich for good. Bless x

Use vitamin E oil to dilute the tree tree oil, put it in a gelatin capsule, use the bigger half for the vitamin E & the smaller half for the tea tree oil or you can use boric acid capsules to treat as well as taking something like uristat or orzo for the UTI pain that is accompanied with this infection.

Tea Tree and Coconut Oils
Posted by Traveler (Santa Barbara, Ca, Usa) on 04/30/2010


In mid-march (five weeks ago) I started having an off-feeling in my vagina, along with burning while urinating, and a smell. Assuming that this was BV, but also having some D-Mannose on hand for UTIs, I took the D-Mannose, and used probiotics, garlic, and hydrogen peroxide treatments. However, while it improved, it stuck around and got worse everytime I had sex with my boyfriend. Thinking it was an offsetting of my pH, I continued to work with the hydrogen peroxide, and occasionally stuck some virgin organic coconut oil up into the vaginal tract when it was really irritating.

Finally, last night I considered that I've continued to have symptoms of off-ness for over a month even though the smell is gone. I figured that since the symptoms don't match a yeast infection, and seems to line more up with bv but isn't responding-- then it must be trichomoniasis. I read on here to try tea tree oil with a carrier oil or water and shoot it into the vaginal tract.

Well this morning I had sex again, and by this evening I was feeling more off again with a slight itch/ache/burning about an inch up my vaginal tract and a feeling like my vaginal and urethra muscles were locked into a pushing position to push something out. That's another of my symptoms, that even when I'm focusing on other things, my vagina is stressed out and while it's not physically debilitating, it is very draining to feel something off and not be able to get rid of it.

So this evening I went and picked up an ounce of pharmaceutical grade tea tree oil for $10 at CVS, and got a 10cc needle-less syringe. I pulled up 3 cc's of tea tree oil, and heated up some coconut oil on the stove-top and filled the remainder of the syringe, about 7 cc's worth. I mixed it up in the syringe so that the tea tree oil would not irritate my vaginal tract, sat back on the couch with a towel and pillow propped up under my hips, and emptied the syringe into my vaginal tract. I stayed this way for ten minutes before I had to get up and go get my dinner, so I evacuated my vaginal tract by pushing down and emptying the oil into the toilet. I immediately felt a very cooling sensation from the tea tree oil, and minutes later I also felt as if the inside of my vagina was more moisturized--which is a strange thing to describe. It didn't feel as if it was lubricated, it felt as if the coconut oil was actually being soaked into my sensitive parts down there.

A few hours later on, my vagina feels pretty normal, and that's been an unusual feeling to have for any period of time--though I have felt it a few times in the past few months. I'm hoping to treat my boyfriend, and also hope to use the tea tree oil/coconut oil mixture one more time in a few days.

I just have to hold off and not do it several days in a row as much as I'm tempted to, unless I feel irritated down there, rather than trying to pre-treat it.

I hope this works long-term, and if it does, thank you original poster of the tea-tree oil idea.

Tea Tree Oil
Posted by T. (Charlotte, North Carolina) on 04/19/2013

Yellow vaginal discharge. Thought b.v. so tried boric acid inserts. Didn't help. Tried coconut oil with eucalyptus oil. Helped with itching but not discharge. So maybe it's trich?

Just started using the tea tree oil with coconut oil as a carrier. I scraped the cold oil into flakes into a small glass bowl, added a several drops of tea tree oil. Let it sit for a while. Used two cotton balls to scoop up the concoction and inserted into my vagina for a few hours.

Will repeat later tonight and again two or three times a day for a few days. Will report results as I go.

Went to county health dept and yes, it is trich (and b.v.). Had to stop self-treating before visit so as not to get wrong diagnosis. Was also tested for Chlamydia, syphillis, gonorrhea too.

Angry that the nurse practitioner FORCED me to take the 1 gram dose (she stood there and watched me then made sure I drank a full cup of water to wash the two tabs down) of the antibiotic for chlamydia BEFORE the test results are back (not until next week! ) while telling me I should start the Flagyl for the B.V. and trich the same night.


Is this how we become resistant to antibiotics, by taking them without merit? I understand it is her job to make sure the "public" is safe by "treating" me for a definite STD in case I didn't return to the clinic upon a positive result.

BUT why not treat me in clinic for what was already known? (Trich and b.v.?)

If I test positive for gonorrhea and don't return, then what?

So any way, I've been taking the oil of oregano to help build my immune system and I read here on EC that it helps with B.V. as well.

I am NOT taking the additional poison (Flagyl) and will go back to inserting the tea tree oil which I am adding lavendar to (after reading about using it with tea tree oil for trich, on a "wise woman" healing site) and carrying both with organic unrefined coconut oil.

If this doesn't work, I will be trying an usnea tincture which is a tree lichen and shown to work against trich in european research (

Will report more as I go along.

Well, it seems inserting the tea tree oil (mixed with a little coconut oil) is not doing much. (But maybe I'm not using enough or often enough.). I am also taking oregano oil but switched to goldenseal tincture (both orally) for a few weeks to strengthen my immune system.

Goldenseal can only be taken for a short period. I did 30 drops, three times a day, for one week.

So far, better but not gone. I'm thinking I'm gonna switch to tea tree and lavendar with sesame oil as the carrier, for insertion during the day.

I also read that changing the pH of the vagina (acidifying it with boric acid) can help.

A study was conducted by Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Toronto, Toronto ON. Results were published in the January 2008 edition of JOGC (Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada).

See here:

So boric acid appears to be another option. And one that will be easier for me as I already have the powder and capsules.

I'm going to start this at night. I also located more information about trich and how it can ABSOLUTELY be self-induced by wiping the wrong way.

Ladies, take note!

I hope this helps someone. I will report back on my own condition soon.

Still dealing with the trich. Finally seems to be be showing some real improvement (discharge not as much and not as smelly).

Last week I decided to try a garlic insert as I read it can help.

I chopped one clove of garlic (fresh, raw, organic) and bundled/wrapped it into a strip of unbleached cotton gauze. I placed the bundle in a small glass bowl (the really small ones from the Dollar Tree that come in a group of 3 or 4).

I poured a tablespoon of sesame oil on the bundle and let sit for about an hour. I wrapped the bundle into another long strip of gauze then inserted. Pushed it all the way up to my cervix and left in for 12 hours.

Each time I used the bathroom I made sure to insert my finger and push the bundle up against my cervix again if needed.

Initial insertion was uncomfortable. Maybe because my vaginal walls were tender? The garlic pieces felt sharp. :-(

Did for 3 days then decided to switch to a mixture of organic sesame oil and oil of oregano (the GNC brand; NOT oregano essential oil).

- 1 tablespoon of sesame oil

- . 50mL oil of oregano

Put both in small clean glass bowl and swished it around to mix the oils. Let sit for a minute or so.

Add gauze and let it sit for another minute. Once gauze soaks up all the oil, get a second piece of gauze (to soak up any oil that might drip when I picked up the first piece and to act as a plug).

I used the second piece of gauze to pick up the first piece. I inserted the gauze into my vagina making sure the second piece of gauze went in last.

Like with the garlic insert, I pushed the gauze all the way to my cervix and left it there for 12 hours.

My period came so I stopped but I will resume in a few days.

The organic raw garlic is now part of my daily diet as well. I just chop a clove right before I eat, take a few bites of my food, chew, pop in a slice of garlic and swallow it down with my food.

Will report more details at beginning of next month. Thanks everyone for taking this long journey with me.

Dear Madame, trich can be nasty and has been found in many case resistant to Flagyl. The best thing is to buy Caprylic acid. Caprylic acid is used in lab to stop Trichomonias growing. If you have a resistant strain to flagyl, then an efflux pump inhibitor might do the tip. My remedy is taking pomegrante peel powder, Neem extract and fresh garlic.

Sad to say that the odor got to be too much and I finally gave in and took the Rx. I hated it but I'm happy to say it went away and has not returned.

In the time that has passed, I've also found that while trich can be sexually transmitted, it's not necessarily from a straying partner.

Just as it can be gotten from a woman wiping the wrong way (back to front instead of front to back), I also believe it can come from not cleaning well when going from anal to vaginal sex. (Which will make sense since it lives naturally in the intestinal system.)

So be sure to use condoms, change them in between, and wash in between sessions too. It might be hard in the "heat of the moment" when all feels good but you'll be sorry later if trich comes your way.

Here is a link that tells how it can be transmitted without having sex:

So, I recently tried the advice of Lulu on here to treat the trich with tea tree oil and diluting it in a douche. Oh lord am I in pain. It is burning horribly... Is this normal?

The best thing I would recommend is getting some plain yogurt or kefir and applying it there, and leaving it for sometime for the burning sensation to lessen.

Plus the probiotics of the yogurt or kefir and good for you to absorb.

Good luck, T

Hi, I don't know if I am replying to the same thing or not. But I want to reply to the side effects or maybe someone can help me. The lady said she tried someone advice of using tea tree oil with a douce and she started to burn horribly. Well I tried using a syringe and I experienced the same thing. Well it wasn't burning that bad but it started to itch incredibly! Then my vagina has this hanging feeling like its pushing outward or something. I was doing this to treat Trich. I know I have trich bc I been diagnosed many times but the medicine they give me doesn't work. Hearing from so many people how tea tree oil works, I was desperate enough to try it. If this continues I don't think I'll try it again. I'm thinking maybe I pushed the syringe in too far or maybe I used too much and I did dialated it with water. Can someone help please??

Hi there. I am greatly interested in a natural cure to Trich do to E.R. visits to the hospital from an allergic reactions to Metronitazole. I'm deathly allergic to it after 4 tablets. I have to find a solution to this problem.

I have tried silver solution mixed with pure aloe vera gel and a strong dose of tee tree oil mixed together and used a needleless syringe to half way and insert vaginally. I wear a pad and let it absorb through the night. After 3 months I went back to my gyno and she said it was much smaller and fewer were seen under the microscope.

So I have to continue with this exhausting remedy :( I also eat yogurt and silver solution 3x daily. Silver solution has a 4 hour kill time and does not kill the good bacteria.

P. S. I also put the tee tree oil in my lubricant and I think it helps some for my partner too.

Hope this is also helpful info to you all

What is silver solution?

EC: It sounds like the writer is talking about colloidal silver.

Tea Tree Oil for Trich: OMG! Please do not EVER use tea tree oil topically without first diluting it! You can burn your skin. Please use one of these methods for dilution instead:

Add 1 ounce pure tea tree oil to 2 ounces vegetable glycerin. Shake Well. Add 1 ounce water. Shake well again.


Add 2 Tbs of tea tree oil to 2 Tbs of water SHAKE WELL & apply immediately.

Tea tree oil doesn't need to be diluted. It is great for any skin ailment and full strength is best, if you want quick relief. Tea tree oil is the only thing that will cure athlete's foot problems. Put it on at night with socks on top, and in just a week or two one will notice improvement. It will take a few months treatment to completely kill the fungus.
