					Yeast Infection defined: Vaginal yeast infections are mainly caused by fungi known as
Candida albicans. Candida albicans is generally found on the skin as well as vagina of
any and every woman. However, not all women are comfortable discussing the issues
related to their private parts. In these cases, they use home remedies to get rid of the
infection.

Make sure you keep your genitals clean and dry. Excellent hygiene us essential is you
want to clear up the external yeast infection. In particular focus on skin folds as these are
harder to keep clean and dry but vital to make sure the yeast is totally clear.

Infuse warm water with 2 tsp. dried goldenseal or Oregon grape root to create a tea
douche. Douche with the mixture two times a day for two to four weeks to treat vaginal
candida. You may also create a hydrogen peroxide douche which will help control
vaginal yeast. Mix 1 tsp. hydrogen peroxide in 1 cup warm water. Use the douche once a
day to help eliminate excess yeast.

Garlic is also very effective in treating yeast infection, it can be used internally and
externally, use of garlic in the diet purifies blood and works well for immunity whereas
crushed garlic cloves can be applied on the affected parts except vagina for controlling
and curing yeast infection.

Plain free Yogurt- This method is effective also, if you don't like the taste or smell of
garlic. You take plain yogurt and you rub the infected area with it. You will have a relief
and the infection should go away after you let it all the night. Be careful because you
must use plain yogurt, unsweetened, I repeated this because people often forget it.
You should not dress in jeans (and / or underwear) that could be too snug on your own
lower body parts.

Eat yogurt with live cultures at least twice a day. Avoid sugars and white flour products,
which will feed the yeast and cause them to multiply. Eat fresh vegetables, poultry, citrus
fruits, Omega 3 fatty acids, including fish and flax seed oil, olive oil and raw nuts. Eat
whole grains, and drink at least six to eight 8-oz. glasses of water a day. Avoid alcohol,
caffeine, animal fats, hydrogenated oils, dairy products (aside from yogurt) and fast or
"junk" foods, which tend to be high in sugar, white flour and fat.

Tea tree oil is also a good home remedy for yeast infection, it is used externally for
douching affected parts and vagina for relief and curing the infection. Oil of oregano is a
potent home remedy if taken regularly. It is to be taken orally and dosage shall be worked
out before use. Apple cider vinegar is another effective home remedy for yeast infection.
