Name: Jenn

Ingredients: PLAIN Yogurt (Not Vanilla,just plain yogurt)
Instructions: What a yeast infection is is a buildup of \"bad\"bacterial cultures in your body.Plain Yogurt works because it has the \"good\" bacterial cultures thatare also found in your body.Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of the Candida albicans fungus. This is a naturally occurring organism that normally lives quite harmlessly in your vagina, rectum, digestive tract and mouth. but sometimes the bad cultures get out of hand. All you have to do is insert about a spoonful of the yogurt into your vagina before bed..but wear a pad because it can get messy. If you suffer from Yeast Infections, you can try taking acidophillus pills (usually found at a health food store). For the burning INSIDE of your vagina, try soaking a tampon in yogurt, and freezing it, then insert it, and let it thaw out. Hope this helps!!! Thanks for the site.

No one told me until I was close to forty, but the best way ever to
PREVENT yeast infections is simply to STOP using scented soaps. This
includes those with "masking fragrances," so you have to read the
ingredient lists. The only one I've found that fits the bill is Basis,

unfortunately, but it's been well worth it to me for thirteen years
now, since I get a rare infection only with very strong antibiotics and

sometimes not even then.

I have never had a yeast infection and contribute this to a formula I have used for years.

Ingredients: Goldenseal, yogurt

I open 1 or 2 capsules of goldenseal and mix them with warm water and use as a douche. After cleansing with this mixture, I then follow the procedure by douching with plain yogurt . Goldenseal is a natural antibiotic and the yogurt replaces good bacteria that is lost during douching. I passed this along to my sister in law which suffered for years with yeast infections. It worked for her. And works for me since I've never had a yeast infection in my 55 years!!!!

Hope it is as successful for others

Lukewarm water
INSTRUCTIONS: Warning.....if you have a weak stomach it might be best if you don't try this, as it tastes horrible, but works every time for my mother and I.Just add a teaspoon of baking soda to about 8 ounces of lukewarm water (to help it desolve) and stir it up, then drink! For a year straight afterhaving my daughter I got yeast infections monthly before AND after my period, and this was the only thing that I finally found that worked. Good Luck!

Hi..I wanted to add a home remedy for external itching caused by yeast infections. This works like you would not believe. Wet any kind of tea bag(I use orange pekoe) and then put it in the freezer until almost frozen. Take it out and apply to the affected area. Leave it on until it starts to thaw. It will take away the itching almost instantly.thank you

Ingredients: grapefruit seed extract
Instructions: I battled recurring yeast infections for years. It was not only extremely uncomfortable and frustrating, but also expensive
buying those creams and perscriptions. Buy Grapefruit Seed Extract at a health food store. Douche with 15-20 drops mixed in 8 oz. of water. Hold it in as long as you can. This usually works with just one dose. If symptoms persist, do it daily until gone. This remedy is truly amazing and changed the quality of my life!!

Ingredients: Cranberry Extract Pills or Cranberry Blueberry Extract
Instructions: Take pills as instructed. takes a few days to work, but I
take 2 everyday because it is a great antioxidant that works as a preventative for the yeast infections as well as urinay tract infectionsThis method was recommended by my Ob/Gyn, Dr. Werner in Annapolis, MD (Kaiser Permanente) and is the only thing that works for me. Boric Acid powder inserted into the vagina will cure any yeast infection instantly. Here's how to get it into the right places: You need empty gelatin capsules (I use Lilly brand capsules) and fill them with the powder. In a few minutes you have enough filled to last you for years! Then insert one capsule two to three times a day while the infection is acute. It should clear up within a day or two. I used the capsules once a week as a preventive measure for a while (as directed by my doctor), but now I only use them when I feel a twinge of an infection coming on. Then one capsule is enough to get rid of it. You can ask your doctor about it. They can prescribe the capsules for you and the Boric Acid.

Ingredients: Olive Leaf Extract
Grapefruit Seed Extract
Instructions: You can buy both ingredients at a Health Food Store. Take 15 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract in a small glass of water or juice (warning -the taste is VERY bitter - juice is the better choice) 2 to 3 times a day. Take the Olive leaf extract 2 times a day. The woman at the health food store told me to give the remedy a week to work, and the infection was completely gone after 2 1/2 days. This is the first natural remedy I have tried that has such quick and powerful results!

Country of Remedy: USA

Ingredients: Grapefruit seed extract(liquid concentrate).
Instructions: in the morning take 10-15 drops with apple or orange juice(do not use water the grapefruit seed extract is very strong and bitter ) .put as little juice as possible and drink it all at once( grapefruit seed extract is very strong and bitter ). take every morning until symptoms go away. it may take up to 30 days but once its gone the chance of getting a yeast infection again is very slim

Yeast Infections- Douche with a solution of  1 pint of distilled water and 1 tsp. of powdered Goldenseal. Let some of the solution run over external areas. Usually one time of doing this will clear the yeast infection right up, but it may take a second time, if the infection is advanced.

For Yeast Infections:
Honey!!  This works BETTER and FASTER than yogurt, Monistat, or anything else.  My mother has battled yeast infections all of her life!!  Honey is the only thing that has helped her.  Get a squeeze bottle full of honey and take it to the bathroom. Sit on the toilet and pour a very liberal amount into hand.  Spread over infected area and SATURATE!!  Sit there for at least 5 minutes or as long as you can.  Take a nice bath afterwards to clean up, but you will feel relief INSTANTLY!!  I have never had to do this more than ONCE< but repeat every couple of hours if you need it.  The yeast cannot live in the honey, due to the “live bacteria” found in the honey, therefore, the infection is choked out.  (This bacteria in honey is the reason children under 2 are not supposed to eat honey) Cheap, effective, painless, simple!!  If for some reason this does not work for you, do try the yogurt.  It’s always better to try “home remedies” first unless it is a major medical condition that needs professional medical treatment.

When you complete a round of antibiotics, eat one 8-ounce container of plain yogurt per day for four days. The yogurt must
contain the active ingredient "acidiphilis," which replaces good bacteria killed by the antibiotic.

Ingredients: one glass of strong cranberry juice
Instructions: Drink glass with eat meal preferably. Cranberry juice apparently has the perfect pH for the vagina and intestines so it helps speed up recovery! However, its best when used in conjunction with yeast infection creams, but if you're suffering from a mild infection and cant be bothered getting a prescription than eating 2 cups of live yoghurt once a day and taking cranberry juice should solve the problem naturally within a few days.

I have a great home remedy for yeast infections.  I got this one from my grandmother when my daughter of 11 months had a terrible yeast infection in her diaper area and no medicine would cure her-it also works for adults, trust me I tried it for both external and internal infections.
Take one half cup of baking soda and add it to luke warm bath water-soak for about fifteen or twenty minutes twice a day till symptoms are gone, then do once a day for about two or three days thereafter. Only fill the tub enough to cover the affected area.
For internal infections, soak in the tub and swish the water so that it can enter all areas.  For yeast of the breast (nursing mothers know all too well about this) lay on you stomach in the bath so that the breast is under the water for the duration of the soak.
When you are drying off, dry off with a clean towel and then use the hair dryer to completely dry the affected area.

Ingredients: white or apple cidar vinegar~
Instructions: For all those who have suffered a yeast infection. Ive found that
if you are burning, itching and all the other nasties that are
associated with a yeast infection, it really helps to soak in a bathtub with about a
cup and ahalf of vinegar. Just be sure to dry off after, to inhibit any
addition growthof yeast.

Hope it helps

Put garlic (a couple of cloves) and water in a blender.  Blend until the garlic is not whole.  Put in a douche bottle and douche with it.  It may sting a little depending on how "raw" you are, BUT IT WORKS!!!! Everyone who has tried it will no longer use anything else!
