Natural Health Hygiene How to Treat a Yeast Infection Naturally
Yeast infections are common in women, butthey can also be found in children and in men. I'm Lauren Roy for Sugar Hollow Farmin Phillipston, Mass. Yeast infections are very unpleasant. The first thing you needto do if you think you have a yeast infection is have it checked out, diagnosed properly.Be careful taking any of the overthecounter medicines because they can have side effects.You can treat it naturally with acidophilus, which comes in a capsule form. Get the kindthat you have to keep in your refrigerator. And double up on that and that will help balancethe amount of yeast in your body. You can also use yogurt nutritionally as well as topicallyto balance the amount of yeast in your body,
which we all have yeast. It's just that sometimesit overgrows and becomes unpleasant. So you have to bring it back down to a normal amountand it's very helpful to do that naturally. You just eat your yogurt, make sure that it'sthe kind that has the active cultures, and you take your acidophilus, drink plenty ofwater, keep yourself clean, and wear cotton underwear. You also want to make sure thatif you're taking antibiotics, you are also eating yogurt andor taking acidophilus becauseantibiotics can sometimes cause yeast infections.

Apple Cider Vinegar For Yeast Infection Is Apple Cider Vinegar Good For Candida
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thanks for checking out my tutorial. A question I get asked from time to time is quot;Eric, isapple cider vinegar any good for people with yeast infections?quot; It is. It is very good.But listen up; it's very important for you to get the right kind of apple cider vinegar.Braggs makes quite a good apple cider vinegar. It's a raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar.We have a really nice one here in New Zealand and the brand is called Coral Tree, and it'sactually made from apples fermented in oak barrels from biodynamically grown apples.Organics are here. Biodynamics are just a
little bit higher than organic, so they'revery, very high quality products when you buy the Demeter certified, which is a funnylittle sort of peanut shape character. The Demeter, I think they call it, certificationfor biodynamic is an extremely high standard. If you can get a biodynamically certified,beautiful quality apple cider vinegar, which is naturally fermented in a wooden barrel,you've got a really good product. This is a fermented food or otherwise knownas cultured. These foods like the cider vinegar are okay for a Candida yeast infection internallyand externally. Keep away from commercialized, mass produced apple cider vinegars in supermarketsin plastic bottles. They're junk. Just keep
away from that sort of crap. It's the samewith olives and pickles and crap like that from supermarkets that's been commerciallyfermented in lye or just in cheap sort of waters with chemicals added. I hate oliveslike that. I prefer to buy olives from those big buckets at the Greek or Italian shopsquot;the way that mama used to make itquot; a long time ago. When you're looking at foods thathave been preserved according to techniques that have been going on for hundreds and hundredsof years, you're usually getting a better quality product than something that comesfrom a factory using a lot of white sugar, which is usually a junk product.Vinegar has had a bad rap for a long time
with Candida, but a good quality fermentedapple cider vinegar, there's nothing wrong with it at all. It's great to use as a vaginaldouche. Guys can use it for a jock itch rinse. You can soak your feet in apple cider vinegar.You can wash different parts of your body if you've got fungal infections. You can useit on psoriasis. You can use it on your scalp, flaky scalp, dandruff. You can soak your toenailsin straight apple cider vinegar. So there are many applications.It's also really good for your stomach. It can create some burning sensations if youtake it too strong, so you might need to dilute it down. I've also had a patient a while agowith a very itchy rectal area, he got incredible
relief by using enemas with cider vinegarand water. He said the itch went away within a week. It disappeared. So for itching hemorrhoidsit can be used. It can be used for many different applications.Yes, apple cider vinegar is good to take internally also. Small amounts. You might want to putone or two teaspoons of a good quality, organically fermented and made apple cider vinegar ina glass of water. You can have small sips of that with certain types of foods like highprotein to help you digest protein better. Don't be afraid of having a good quality applecider vinegar like Braggs regularly if you've got Candida. Don't go too crazy on the doseto start with. Go very slow and see how you
go.I hope that answers your questions. Thanks for the question.
