I have been yeast infection free for three years. I suffered from chronic reoccurring infections since I was 21. My advise is to wash all underwear in hot water with unscented washing liquid like the All brand. Bath only in unscented dove soap or use castle soaps with essential oils such as Dr. Bonner or the opengate brand. You can also order liquid black soap with essential oils of lavender or peppermint which is anti fungal on Amazon . I'm going to stress using hot water and washing your underwear separate from your socks and other clothing. You can also prewash your underwear daily with hot water and regular antibacterial soap then wash again in the washing machine. The reason for this is yeast can live in your underwear and only die with heat. Also wash all towels in bleach and hot water and the unscented washing liquid . For color towels add Lysol or pine sol with the unscented washing liquid. I only use 1/4cup. Wash the outside and inner labia only with the soap. Do not put in vaginal canal. Bath in warm salt baths using pink salt or sea salt with hydrogen peroxide. You can also douche with hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 cup of water. Follow with homemade tea tree oil suppositories made with coconut oil. Freeze them and wrap each in foil. Use one before bedtime. Also drink probiotics drinks like Kumbachi from Walmart vegetables section or eat low sugar yogurt by oiu or chobono. You can also take a woman's probiotics. Probiotics are very important for vaginal flora and to prevent yeast infections. Always get your partner treated or avoid sex until you are fully better. Get tested for all stds especially requests a G/C test from doctor. Avoid all sugar drinks and drink coconut water or lemon/ lime water daily. If you suffer from heartburn add aloe Vera in your drinks. Eat fruit but avoid bread and rice. Avoid all sweets. Get a blender and juice lots of green vegetables daily with your favorite fruit for breakfast and lunch.Drink green juices daily. Eat a raw salad with cucumbers and your choice of meet for dinner. Avoid fast foods. Drink Green tea with a tsp of coconut oil daily. Eat a plant base diet. Drink cranberry juice daily. Drink probiotics drinks three times a week. Add liquid chlorophyll by Now brand from Amazon to your water a few times a week to oxygenate the body. Yeast cant grow in a oxygen body. Take P73 oregano oil three times daily. You can buy it from Amazon.
I have been getting yeast infections after sex and during my period for the past 6 months. I have found several different cures that work within days:
*Soaking a tampon in Tea tree oil w/ water or ACV and water(leave in overnight)
*Inserting 2 Acidophilus pills inside and taking 2 more orally
*Fill spray bottle with water and lots of tea tree oil, spray your "lady parts" everytime you go to the washroom. It burns like fire but it works.
I just did the following and got results in 30 minutes!
Now that I am in my 40s, I find that I often start to get the beginnings of a yeast infection on day 3 of my cycle. I assume it's got something to do with hormone levels... I'm looking into it as it's a bit annoying. Generally if I catch it soon enough, a regular application of lavender oil clears it up. (I put a few drops on my finger and insert). For whatever reason, this month, the yeast got the better of me. I was quite busy so initially opted for 1 day Monistat - which not only didn't work AT ALL - it actually caused me considerable discomfort. I decided to make time to deal with it the natural way. Here is what I purchased:
Boric Acid, empty 00 gel caps, Apple Cider Vinegar, raw organic coconut oil, raw organic Manuka Honey, FeminaFlora (this is a friendly bacteria suppository found at Health food stores in the refrigerator)
I immediately inserted ONE FeminaFlora and TWO capsules filled with boric acid. Then, while sitting on the toilet, I slathered on Manuka Honey, including coating my finger and inserting it a few inches up inside. Sat for 20 minutes - then rinced with warm water. (was already feeling relief from the burning/itching! ) Afterward - I put 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar in a basin of warm water large enough to sit in and did a sitz bath for 10 minutes. I ended this all off by soaking an organic cotton tampon in coconut oil and inserting it. I left that in for two hours.
VOILA! The honey stopped the burn/itch right away. The coconut oil was very soothing internally, and is also anit-fungal. The apple cider vinegar helps restore pH. The boric acid kills the over growth of yeast. The FeminaFlora boosts the GOOD flora! I will continue with one FeminaFlora every night for 7 nights, and one boric acid insert along with it. Honey, etc as needed - but I don't think I'm going to need them.
Moving forward, I plan to go on a candida cleanse where I will eliminate sugar for awhile... And see my acupuncturist to address hormone fluxuations. I am also going to start taking B vitamins. Best of luck! This really DOES work, and it works FAST! I had never tried the HONEY before and was thrilled with the immediate relief.
I was suffering from a yeast infection.
Quick simple easy way to get rid of one:
Stop using soap when you bathe. Bathe with water and sea salt. When you finish bathing, mix coconut oil with tea trea oil and apply to the vagina (can go in walls or inserted inside). Also take a drop of oregano oil after and mix in. You can also take 2-3 drops of oregano oil on the tongue.
Also, buy a case of kefir and drink one or two glasses a day. I also find that taking ayurvedic herbs like triphala and gotu kola also helped the process. Using coconut oil when eating has also done wonders.
