Natural Remedies for Yeast Infections and Candida
by Tony Isaacs
(NaturalNews) Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of yeast which can affect the skin (yeast rash), mouth (thrush), digestive tract, esophagus, vagina (vaginitis), and other parts of the body. Yeast infections occur most frequently in moist areas of the body. Although Candida albicans and other Candida yeasts are the most frequent offenders, other yeast groups are known to cause illness. These include Torulopsis, Cryptococcus, Malassezia, and Trichosporon yeasts. Here are some natural and home remedies which may help:
Vaginal Yeast Infections:
* Take a superior brand of colloidal silver both internally by mouth, and vaginally by coating a tampon with a combination of colloidal silver, a few drops of tea tree oil and either aloe vera gel or KY jelly. Insert it into the vagina and leave for 30-40 minutes. Likewise, douches with colloidal silver and a few drops of tea tree oil can rid yeast infections and keep them at bay.
* Ease the maddening itch of a yeast infection with a suppository made with boric acid. Although its name sounds harsh, boric acid acts as a mild antiseptic and has antiviral and antifungal properties. Insert one suppository every night as long as needed. Do not exceed 14 days. If you don`t find the suppositories in your natural food store, ask your pharmacist to make them.
* Yogurt. Dip a tampon in a container of organic non-sweetened yogurt that contains active cultures, then insert it into the vagina and leave for 30-40 minutes.
Other Yeast Infections:
* For external yeast infections in the folds of skin and male yeast infections, apply colloidal silver and a few drops of tea tree oil.
* For internal yeast infections, take two or more ounces daily of a superior colloidal silver product until the yeast infection is gone. Works well and quickly for Candida (see below).
* For best results keep the area moistened with the silver/tea tree oil for several minutes and repeat 2-3 times daily until the yeast infection is gone.
To keep yeast infections at bay, do one treatment of topical silver and tea tree oil every one to two weeks.
Many Candida species are members of gut flora in mammalian hosts including humans. If you want to get rid of Candida and remove it from the intestinal walls, take the following steps:
* Superior colloidal silver (such as that made by the Utopia Silver Supplement Company) will get rid of candida in short order. Be sure to take plenty (a couple of ounces or more per day) and it will only take a few days.
* Bentonite clay will literally pull the Candida off the intestinal walls.
* Coconut oil is very effective against Candida and is a wonderful addition to any healthy diet plan.
After you get rid of Candida, make a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil part of your daily diet/health plan, supplement with probiotics to make sure that beneficial flora flourishes in the gut, and occasionally take some colloidal silver (only a couple of teaspoons two or three times a week should be plenty) and use the bentonite clay and your Candida problems should be gone forever.
Note: most yeast infections occur in people whose immune systems are compromised and/or whose intestinal flora is out of balance. To keep yeast infections at bay it is important to build a strong immune system and keep your intestinal flora balanced. A good diet and healthy lifestyle will go a long way towards accomplishing those goals.
