Since my kefir tampons post has become surprisingly popular then I guess that many more people besides me are dealing with vaginal yeast infections (especially during pregnancy) so I’ll write here about some other natural remedies as well to get the yeast under control without having to turn to the doctor to get medications.
So the best thing you could do when trying to fight off yeast infection is to pay attention to what you eat, sugar and wheat are the main things to leave out because they are feeding the yeast as well. And try to add garlic to your dishes as much as you can, both cooked and raw versions. Also eating foods with probiotics is a good idea (kefir, buttermilk, plain yogurt).
Another remedy that is recommended to help cure the vaginal yeast infection is apple cider vinegar. Add one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar (use organic version with “mother” if possible because that will have the most beneficial enzymes in it) to one glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning. It will help to make the internal pH balance unacceptable to the yeast. Drinking apple cider vinegar water is also especially recommended during pregnancy because it only doesn’t help to fight off the yeast but also strengthens the placenta and improves the blood flow to the uterus.
Externally you can also try applying olive oil to the infected areas because olive oil helps to destroy the spores of the yeast.
