Yeast Infection Home Remedies
Do You Have a Yeast Infection?
A Yeast Infection is also a fungal infection caused by a specific fungus known as Candida Albicans. Candidiasis is a common yeast infection that affects about 3 out of 4 women at one point in their lives. Men can also get this but it is less common. Once you get a yeast infection, you’re more likely to get another one unless you take preventative measures.
There are 4 main types of yeast infections that can affect both men and women:
- Genital (Vaginal Infections in women and Penile Infections in men)
- Oral Yeast Infections (also known as Thrush)
- Diaper Rash (from a moist wet diaper that is against the skin for too long)
- Systemic Yeast Infection (Invasive infection that spreads inside your body)
Vaginal Yeast Infections are by and far the most common type of yeast infection encountered, and fortunately the easiest to treat naturally.
Yeast Infection Symptoms
Genital Yeast Infections (Usually Vaginal Yeast Infections) can be spread by sexual contact and intimacy, but they aren’t actually classified as STD’s (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). Here are the most common symptoms of a genital yeast infection:
- Vaginal or Genital Burning Sensation or Hotness
- Vaginal Discharge (usually white and cottage-cheese looking substance)
- Painful Intercourse
- General Soreness around the genital area
- Sometimes there will even be a mild or moderate rash

They were actually just feeding their yeast infection instead of taking away it’s fuel sources. Here is the natural way to treat yeast infection so you not only get some relief now, but won’t be susceptible to catch one again anytime soon.

Here are the Top Home Remedies for a Yeast Infection:
- Take a Bath in Epsom Salts or Dead Sea Mineral Salts as they alkalize the area (yeast feeds on acids) for 10-20 minutes in cool/warm water
- Clean the area with Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- Apply Organic Unsweetened Plain Kefir or Yogurt (Kefir recommended) on a cloth or towel and cover with plastic wrap (20-30 minutes a few times per day if you can). Kefir (you can even make your own at home) can help you reverse IBS and digestive problems too. Highly Recommended to eat or use on a daily basis!
- Avoid excess sugars, starches, wheat gluten and drink water (coffee and wine can dehydrate you, so if you do drink them, also drink a glass of purified water preferably alkaline, with 1/4 lemon squeezed in with and of sea salt afterwards!
- Try a Organic Gluten Free diet until you get rid of your yeast infection
