Grapefruit seed Extract as a Yeast Infection home remedy

According to many holistic health practitioners and many more of their patients, Grapefruit Seed Extract (or “GSE”) is one of the best natural supplements to aid with candida infections and so is our first pick as a yeast infection home remedy.  It has been described as a “natural antibiotic”. The reason that fruits such as lemons, limes, and grapefruit work so well is that, when digested, the acid gets alkalized. When our bodies natural PH level gets out of balance and becomes more acidic, we become more susceptible to illnesses.)

Dr Leo Galland has published some reports on the effect of grapefruit seed extract on yeast infections;he says that patients with an intolerance to antibiotics or drugs generally  found that using grapefruit seed extract was very well tolerated by their bodies. It had , in addition, the advantage of being very “safe” as a yeast infection home remedy or yeast treatment because it is non toxic.  Dr Galland found that several patients suffering from chronic candidiasis (both intestinal and systemic) managed to get control of their chronic yeast infections only with grapefruit seed extract candida yeast treatment

If you are using Grapefruit Seed extract as a home remedy for yeast infection, it is important to get your diet right first.  This is covered in this Yeast Cleanser e-book.  It is also stressed by Dr Allan Sachs, author of the Authoritative Guide to Grapefruit Seed Extract.  He recommends you do a week’s cleansing candida diet.  Yeast Infection No More, 12 Hour Cure for Yeast infection and Yeast Cleanser (all reviewed on this site) go into more detail on diet but in general you should do everything you can to reduce or eliminate completely ALL processed refined sugars and bleached flour. Eliminate meats treated with synthetic hormones or chemicals. When you are undergoing a yeast treatment or yeast infection home remedy stop consuming products with hydrogenated fats (peanut butter, pre-baked goods and margarine, etc.). Reduce your processed and refined food as much as possible. Go for organic, non-processed whole foods and plenty of raw, fresh vegetables when doing your yeast infection home remedy or yeast treatment. Prepare most of your food yourself:I know if you’re busy that’s a pain-but you want to get better.

How do you apply grapefruit seed extract to a yeast infection?

Mix up 2 -3 drops in 5 oz. of water or juice. Take twice in a day as part of your yeast infection home remedy. For resistant cases, take up to 7 drops mixed in at least 5 oz. of liquid. If you do not see an  improvement, see your doctor. If you suffer from Re-occurring yeast infections there’s a preferred Natural Yeast Infection treatment that has many great reviews.

You can also apply a “douche“.  Mix up 15-20 drops in 8 oz. of water. Hold it in as long as you can. This will often work just one dose. If symptoms persist, repeat once a day till successful.  Warning: never use undiluted GSE as it is very strong!

Probiotics as a home remedy for yeast infection and Home Remedy using yogurt

Particularly for those who have taken a lot of antibiotics-which removes not only the bad bacteria, but good,beneficial bacteria-it is important to supplement any Yeast treatment, Yeast cleansing program or yeast infection home remedy with a good probiotic supplement that contains Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Acidodophilus.  Probiotics are supplements which consist of beneficial micro-organisms that assist with recolonization of intestinal bacteria.  It is a good idea to take natural yogurt itself but make sure it is made from live cultures, and is unsweetened.  A yogurt yeast infection remedy can be effective in many cases, but we would say in all cases it should be part of your yeast treatment at some point,because of the nature of the infection.

As a simple thrush Yeast infection home remedy using yogurt, try putting a tablespoon of live culture yogurt in the mouth for 5 minutes 4 times a day

An external way to apply the yogurt is to get a tampon and dip it in yogurt. Insert in the vagina, twice a day. Continue this remedy for an extra day after your symptoms go away.

If you are also taking Grapefruit seed extract as your yeast infection home remedy take the probiotics with,or at, your meals, and the GSE between meals.

Douche with Apple cider vinegar as Yeast Infection Home remedy

A douche can be quite an effective yeast infection home remedy.  Make a solution like this:

A tablespoon of Apple Cider vinegar, 4 drops of tea tree oil,1 tablespoon of acidophilus culture, & 3 drops of lavender essential oil.  Mix the ingredients together in a quart of warm water.  Apply the solution once gently every couple of days.  If the yeast infection is very bad, try it every day, and to ensure it is not too strong, use a small baster or sponge to apply.  The goal is to restore the natural pH of your vagina, without resorting to medication.  With this home remedy for yeast infection, always keep the bag below the pelvis when douching & exert only slight pressure and be careful with entry and removal to prevent from causing damage.

Tea Tree Oil as yeast infection home remedy

A fact to bear in mind with tea tree oil yeast infection treatment is that tea tree oil should NEVER be consumed orally, despite what you read on the internet about it being a viable home remedy for yeast infection. There are no safe studies supporting this. However, a few drops of tea tree oil poured on a tampon and inserted in the vagina can provide some relief.
